To celebrate the final days of summer, global sparkling wine brand Freixenet has partnered with Island Poké to update the classic combination of seafood and sparkling wine. Instead of Champagne and oysters, why not try two of 2018’s favourite foodie trends – Cava and poké?
The traditional Hawaiian cuisine of diced raw fish and umami-rich toppings recently took off on UK shores as London’s hottest food trend. With a flavour profile similar to Champagne, Cava is quickly becoming the go-to drink for those looking to branch out from Prosecco.
The ‘Cava and Poké Picnic’ will rival the classic combination of seafood and sparkling wine with Frexienet’s Cordon Negro. Made using the same traditional techniques as Champagne, the labour intensive process that goes into producing each bottle of Cava ensures a stronger flavour with longer lasting bubbles. Cordon Negro has crisp tasting notes and flavours of apple and pear that creates a delicious combination when married with the citrus and salmon found in poké.
Bringing a taste of summer 2018 to picnic blankets across London, customers simply need to purchase two or more poké bowls to receive a complimentary bottle of Freixenet Cordon Negro, along with two wine glasses, all kept chilled in an exclusive luxury picnic package (RRP £50.00). But be quick, the exclusive picnic experience is only available to the first 120 customers that visit the Island Poké Great Titchfield St store on Saturday 1st September.
