Wine ideas for the Prepare-ahead menu
Avocado with Prawns (or Prawn and Avocado Cocktail)
Braised Pheasants in Madeira
Spike’s Apple Sorbet
The creaminess of the sauce in the starter, and the avocado, demand a buttery wine to go with it. A full-bodied New World Chardonnay would be good, as would Chablis or white Burgundy. Moving on to pheasant, you could drink a small glass of Madeira with this, to match the sauce. If not, you will need a very bold red such as Zinfandel, Syrah (or a Grenache/Syrah blend), Merlot or Argentinian Malbec. Apple sorbet is a tricky dessert to match with wine, as you have the acidity of the apples, coupled with sweetness. You could try Calvados with it, or Muscat if you want a sweet wine.
