Last night dinner cooked by chef Peter Tempelhoff of The Greehouse restaurant at Constantia’s The Cellars-Hohenhort hotel as a part of the first ever Big Bottle Festival organised by Jörg Pfützner of Fine Wine Events.
A celebration of large format bottles. Wine of the night was Weingut Müller Scharzhofberger Auslese Mosel 2007 out of magnum (1.5 litre), aromatic and perfectly poised. Biggest bottle served was a salmanazar (9 litres) of Domaine du Pegau Cuvée Laurence Chateauneuf du Pape 1995.
