Acacia Midtown - Wines of New Zealand
I have been to Acacia before and really like it.
This time around we had Seafood Sausage as the first course.
paired with a 2011 Lawson Hill's Pinot Gris
The dish went very well with the wine, which most of us liked the most (the wine)
This was followed by a cucumber and melon salad
Served with a 2009 Lawson Hill's Gewurztraminer wine. The wine was shockingly fragrant and bold, but actually went very well with the melon
I went with the Porchetta main over the tuna
Nicely marbled cut of pork, it could have had a more crispy skin but it was still delicious. It was paired with a 2009 Momo Sauvignon blanc, that also went very well with the dish.
I had the cheese plate with agave honey for dessert
I was very happy with the food and wine pairings and as a group we had a great time.
