Veuve Ambal has 230 hectares of vineyards in Burgundy and is one of the most pristine wineries in the region. 80% of the blend is Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with some Gamay for body and Aligoté for freshness. Quality is ensured by hand-harvesting, pressing at a very low pressure, traditional method bottle fermentation and extra time on the lees.
Hebridean Beechwood Smoked Salmon
A new smoked salmon from Hebridean that is prepared with wood smoke and a hint of peat as an alternative to their 100% Peat Smoked Salmon.
The starting point for this lovely product is the finest quality Atlantic salmon grown for Hebridean in the cool clean waters that surround their island home. In common with the Peat Smoked Salmon, complicated or novelty flavourings have been avoided and the fish is simply smoked with wood chippings from beech and the subtlest addition of local cut peat.
The result is a rich smoked salmon with a hint of sweetness that is best enjoyed on its own or with traditional accompaniments used sparingly – an equal mix of creamy horseradish and crème frâiche is excellent.
