Northcote Celebrates International Sherry Week with a Signature Dinner

Northcote have plenty to celebrate, having recently been voted AA Hotel of the Year for 2016 and retaining their Michelin star for the 20th consecutive year. So where else could be better to host our first Signature Sherry Week Dinner?

Situated in the beautiful Ribble Valley in the North of England, Northcote has long had a reputation for setting the standard in fine dining.  Their focus on local ingredients combined with the skill and expertise of Chef Patron Nigel Haworth and Executive Head Chef Lisa Allen is a winning combination. When creating a menu to pair with the full spectrum of sherries, these elements shine through. 

Working closely with Director of Wines Craig Bancroft, Nigel and Lisa have prepared a four course tasting menu that compliments the versatility of sherry perfectly. Fresh, earthy, rich, umami flavours are all to be found in abundance, culminating in a stunningly sweet finish. Sherries have been selected from the diverse range of wines offered by Valdespino, from the latest Manzanilla En Rama release to Very Old Rare Oloroso Sherries. Head Sommelier Tamas Czinki and Assistant Marek Przyborek have studied the pairings and helped to refine the dishes to produce a truly memorable menu for the occasion.

" The Fino Inocente is very delicate, very classic, slightly mushroomy and earthy, but not heavy, a great food wine. Whereas the Don Gonzalo VOS Oloroso has power, it's pungent, spicy, savory, nutty and full-bodied without sweetness, which is amazing with meat"  said Tamas. Marek agreed that the Inocente Fino was "fresh, balanced and so well made" but chose his favourite as the Solera 1842 Oloroso, " It shows a very elegant sweetness, yet retains lots of oloroso character. It is the type of wine you could pair with many courses."
