Sommelier Dylan Pritchard of The Bay Hotel chooses a South African wine to compliment the food of Barak Hirschowitz the hotelís executive chef.

The Dish - smoked salmon trout wrapped oyster fritters.
His choice - Hamilton-Russel Chardonnay 2000 The vineís berries are small round and pale green to yellow when ripe. The wine has a tighter drier more complex character than most chardonnays with a pebbly-citrus quality that pairs will with the seafood and cuts the richness of the dish.

Dylan studied at the Witswatersrand Hotel School. After graduation he took leave of his native South Africa and worked in Ireland. Since his return he worked at the Edward Hotel in Durban and the Indaba Hotel in Johannesburg before joining the Bay. In addition to his duties at the hotel he has participated in some of the wine regions top international auctions.
