Tonight was a luxurious event where I was able to experience dining with the very beautiful, inspiring and talented Levy Li. Whom, she shared her travels tips with us tonight as we dine in winederlust with Beringer Vineyard.
When I first arrived at 6th Senses Gastrobar, it was a breathtaking sight as I have never ventured to this venue before and was amazed at it's interior decor that truly brings about the exquisite and exclusivity of dining with the finest quality of food and wine.
Shortly after waiting for awhile (because I went there too early-was too excited lah), the event started with the very beautiful and talented host Levy Li who is also a mother herself and an entrepreneur; who sat right infront of me at my table! It was truly an honour to dine and wine together with this inspiring lady.
She started off with introducing herself and sharing some travel tips that we can learn and even plan for in the near future for our ownself and for our family. Bangkok was the main attraction that she highlighted today and it was just in time because I miss Bangkok so much! I would love to go there again but this time with my family!
After her first session of sharing, we were presented with the first dish of the day that is the appetizer that is to be paired with the Beringer wine.
It was really light and easy to munch on to prepare my tummy for the main meal, when pair with the white wine, it brings out a unique flavour and makes this dish more appealing. The wine itself has a refreshing grapefruit flavor enhanced with an intense citrus, ripe stone fruit and white fig. The win finishes with a clean grassy note and crisp acidity making it a perfect match for citrus salad, grilled fish or even goat cheese. With one sip, it really has that citrus type of zesty taste to its texture and it's fragrance.
When paired with the white wine of the Beringer Napa Valley Chardonnay, it brings a stronger citrus and fruity aroma, while it leads to a more medium, rounded mouthfeel highlighted with flavors of lemon creme, toasted almonds and balanced acidity. In layman terms, it is is medium to strong and the taste linger in your mouth. It's slightly richer than the first wine.
The wine tasting session today gave about a good experience for me being exposed to this exotic and exquisite luxurious world of wine pairing with good food and strangers who becomes your friend at the end of the day no matter where they came from.
We had a good evening asking questions and breaking the ice with each other on the topic of travelling; And lets not forget, Levy Li's valuable tips on planning a trip to Bangkok!
