For a quick midweek meal we heated a Pieminister “Shamrock” Steak and Guiness pie. This Bristol-based company produce an award-winning range of quality pies. The Shamrock is beef skirt slow-cooked in stout to produce a richly-flavoured delicious pie. We served ours with carrots and mash.
We chose a lovely Chilean red from the Wine Society to go with this meal – Undurraga Candelabro Reserva Carménère Malbec Carignan 2011.
The tasting notes say it has hints of tobacco and mocha and we agreed. We found the wine creamy, spicy, very fruity with black fruits coming through and smooth with soft tannins. A superb wine that was good with the pie.
