The Urban Project by Eddie McDougall, Kai Tak 2011
A Merlot with spiced plummy fruits, soft tannins and whispy red berry acidity. A savoury finish gives the wine a clear Bordeaux identity stamp. The wine was matured in older French barriques which amplifies the fruit. Great match with Duck a l'Orange.
HONG KONG PRIDE
The people of Hong Kong didn't get handed the greatest city in the world, they MADE it. A fishing village that used its harbour to bring the best of what the world had to offer to her doorstep.
You don't get given free passes in this town, you have to step up and claim yours. Why should we rely on others to bring the best to the table? Sourced abroad and given a lesson as to what this town is all about.
This is THE URBAN PROJECT.
