Wine to try
2005 Cape Mentelle Chardonnay, Margaret River, A$43
Pair this hearty pumpkin soup with an equally hearty white wine, but not one that is too bold or carries too much oak. The delicious creamy complexity of a Margaret River chardonnay fits the bill perfectly, especially the latest offering from Cape Mentelle. The wine’s opulent texture meshes well with the denseness of the soup and
the extra dollop of butterfat richness added by the cream. Likewise, the Mentelle’s spicy, toasty complexity is a good match with the sweet, nutty complexity of the accompanying Gruyère. Yummy stuff.
