PIE FLOATER / 2013 SELDOM INN SHIRAZ
A South Australian Classic ‘Pie Floater’ Braised beef in red wine, enclosed with sour cream pastry, Fresh pea soup, with roasted garlic and cherry tomato.
Mclaren Vale is known for its rich earthy shiraz, so it is a winter staple with the classic pie floater. If you are South Australian it may enrich the memory of the old pie cart out the front of the casino in Adelaide. It was a right of passage for any late night party in the city in the 80’s. The pea soup was traditionally made using dried green peas. they are in season during winter and it adds a lovely freshness. I make this dish every vintage as a staple.
