Las Espana Nite
The American Club (10 Claymore Hill)
 

IT’S HERE! OUR VERY OWN LAS ESPANA NITE

We are extremely honoured to have the F&B Director and Executive Chef of the American Club, Mr. Esmeraldo Oteruelo, to specially create two very special menus for us in this event. Spanish Cuisine is the specialization of Mr. Esmeraldo, who has spent much time and effort to ensure that the wines for which we will be featuring in this event will be meticulously paired with the mouth-watering cuisines that he will be presenting us that night.

For this marvelous event, we will be featuring wines from 2 vineyards in Spain, namely the Valdamor – Rais Baixas vineyard (white wines) and the Castillo de Sajazarra vineyard (red wines). Both vineyards have been widely regarded to have produced the best and the most delicious white & red wines respectively from Spain. Members are encouraged to visit their respective websites at http://www.valdamor.es/index.php and http://www.castillo-de-sajazarra.com/frontend/ingl/home.php to gain a better insight into the vineyards and their wines that we will be featuring for this event.

Mystery Prize ….
Come dressed in your best and most colourful attire, one that is in line with the feisty culture of the Spanish and stand to win a magnum bottle of wine that is kindly donated by Top Wines Pte Ltd. All participants will be asked to vote for the winner in this colourful contest during the dinner.

Seats on this event are limited to 30 pax only and an opportunity such as this to savour the very best of Spanish cuisine paired with the very best of Spanish wines don’t swing by very often, not the mention you stand a chance to win a magnum bottle of wine home! So, don’t hesitate and make your bookings quickly before all of the seats are sold off.

Solar de Libano Reserva 2003
Medium-dark cherry. Intense and complex. Ripe, plumy fruit blending with the liquorice typical of tampranillo
and the vanilla and coconut contributed by the wood. Medium-bodied, round and smooth in the mouth;
sweet tannins and a finish marked by the wood.
Persistent length, a very pleasant wine to drink on its own or with food. Very much a Rioja.

Castillo de Sajazarra Reserva 2003
Attractive, deep cherry with violet glints. Intense and complex, blending ripe fruits with the tobacco and spices.
Creamy with a solid structure, mature, slightly driving tannins. Harmoniously balanced and long.
It is a wine that is splendid now and bodes well for the future.
