Food & Wine 2014Food & Wine 2014Navigating Food & Wine at Epcot is all about having as much information as possible before you go so that you can plan what you’re going to eat and drink. If you’re not a foodie, some of the preparations and ingredients can be pretty intimidating. We’ve collected the menus and added explanations to the food and wine descriptions to get you ready to eat and drink your way around World Showcase from September 19 through November 10. As always, the best tips include pre-purchasing the wristband gift cards to keep your purchases under control and attending on weekdays when crowds are more easily managed as compared to weekend dates.

Australia – Located lagoon side across from the Horizons Building pathway

Food: 

  • Garlic Shrimp with roasted tomatoes, lemon myrtle and rapini (**gluten free dish**) – Lemon myrtle is a native Australian plant with a sweet citrus fragrance and taste. Rapini is a green leafy vegetable much like broccoli but not as dense. 

WDWTOOLS.COM Review: This is an excellent shrimp dish. The flavors are dynamic together but not overpowering and the shrimp is big. If the smell of this dish doesn’t pull you in as you cross the bridge, you’re a stronger person than we are. 

  • Grilled lamb chop with mint pesto and potato crunchies (**gluten free dish**) – pesto is a sauce that traditionally consists of crushed garlic, basil, and pine nuts blended with olive oil and cheeses. This preparation also includes mint. 
  • Pavlova – Pavlova is a crispy mirengue (whipped egg whites and sugar) shell with fresh berries and vanilla custard.

Drinks: 

  • Coopers Brewery, Original Pale Ale – described by a reviewer as “Cloudy pale coloured beer, it’s not your typical pale ale. Not super charged with hops like american or indian pales, rather it is an easy drinking larger packed with flavour. From the bottle this beer must be rolled on its side before opening to get the full flavour of the beer. Otherwise it is a waste and not consumed in the way it was designed to be. Not so much a sampler but one to drink over a session.”
  • Chateau Tanuda Grand Barossa Dry Riesling – this wine is described as, “Aromas of lemon and lime blossom lead to bright citrus flavors on the palate with refreshing acidity.”
  • St. Kilda Chardonnay –  “St Kilda’s Chard is crisp and fruity. Don’t let your ideas about Chardonnay lead you to think this is another buttery, heavy wine; it is definitely not the California style of Chardonnay. The wine has a nice minerality, which follows closely with the nose.  The finish is long for an inexpensive wine with a nice acidity. The St. Kilda Chardonnay pairs nicely with food, particularly chicken or game birds.”
  • Nine Stones Shiraz – “Bright youthful purples and dark red. Plums & raspberries with peppery, spicy overtones overlaid with subtle oak character. Very sweet fruit with fine grained tannins persistent, which is a hallmark of this vineyard; excellent fleshy middle palate and a long satisfying dry finish”.

  • The Great American Wine Company, Red Blend – “The blend is dominated Zinfandel, the classic American grape, and expertise of Rosenblum Cellars history of winemaking.

WDWTOOLS.COM Review: This is one of our favorite dishes at food and wine. The truffle butter baste on the filet makes it tender and savory and the mushrooms add just the right earthy flavor to complement a great cut of steak. This is a great first try for picky eaters. 

Drinks:

  • La Face Neige Apple Ice Wine – “A beautiful Quebec classic ice cider, with vibrant notes of fresh apple slices drizzled with honey and clove.

Long and immensely satisfying on the finish; a great after dinner sipper for company.”

  • Abita Brewing Company, Purple Haze – “Hazy golden amber with good white head, but fades quickly. Nice lacing. Sweet raspberry aroma. Smooth light body.

  • Chateau St. Michelle & Dr. Loosen Eroica Riesling – “Young and fresh, it hits the palate with lip-puckering acidity, rolling on flavors of lemons, oranges, citrus rind, and then into mango and papaya. Though the residual sugar is listed at 1.6%, it shows only in a pleasing roundness in the lengthy finish.”
  • St. Francis Old Vines Zinfandel – “There’s a firm, dynamic acidity that drives it, lifting the juicy fruit away from the deeper mineral tannins and then bringing them back together through a long finish; Both fresh fruit and tannins last on equal terms. Air brings up the details of plum skin, pear and jasmine…”

If you like that general profile, you’ll love this wine. On the other hand, Kiwi haters should definitely beware—this is not for any half-hearted Sauv Blanc drinkers.”

It’s a crisp wine that tastes of the succulence and freshness of the grape. White peach, grapefruit and melon with a hint of pineapple flavours are supported by a soft and textured mouthfeel (achieved through malolactic fermentation). It may have no oak, but this wine has an abundance of character.”
  • Kim Crawford Pinot Noir – “Bright red with purple and crimson notes. An enticingly aromatic wine showing notes of dark cherries and strawberries with the alluring complexity of well integrated oak.
