SC Pannell at Fins

Remy and Vic had a fabulous night at Fins, meeting the gorgeous
winemaker Steve Pannell at the very beginning before settling into
shaved local cuttlefish with asparagus and edamame;  heavenly Brunz
river prawns with beef cheek sausage on jerez-glazed Puy lentils (
sensational); slow-braised shoulder of lamb with celeriac puree and
minted peas and perhaps the best lamb I have ever eaten; a little
pastry of cheese alongside ice cream I THINK but by this stage the
wonderful Justin Leith had so very assiduously been filling our
battery of stemware with glorious matching Pennell wines that really,
who can remember? It was a fantastic night topped up by the delicious
contrast of a nightcap of very dubious and entirely unnecessary shiraz
in the nearby sports bar where an old man sang into a karaoke machine
before being draped by several pretty girls in scanty dresses.
Extraordinary!
