Fred’s

fred-s_daniellealvarez_628Stepping inside Fred’s off noisy Oxford Street you enter a whole new world. A New York style bar leads to a cavernous dining space anchored by two wood-fired grill pits, flanked by two enormous French country kitchen tables. Compelling aromas from the hearth explain why it’s jam packed and buzzing. Delighted that our Petite Clairs and Claire de Lunes are the mainstay since Fred’s opened.

High praise for our Borrowed Cuttings Piquepoul Blanc

max-allen-photo-by-bridie-allen‘After three years in quarantine, then in a nursery for propagation, then being grafted onto existing verdelho vines, those first few picpoul cuttings finally bore their first proper crop – just a few hundred kilos – earlier this year, and were made into a crisp, dry, white wine at Windowrie. Feletti, needless to say, can barely contain his joy, and it’s not hard to see why. I tried a sample just before it was bottled in late July, with a freshly shucked Moonlight Flat oyster, and it was an astonishing match – as well as having delicate lemon acidity, the picpoul variety also has a fair amount of richness and texture that lingers as a satisfying grape-pulpy flavour after you’ve swallowed the oyster.’
