Our Suesey Street team have put together a list of the best wines for you to try in 2019 along with some expert suggestions on which foods would pair perfectly with each one.

Malbec Domaine Jean Bousquet Organic 2017

With organic wines becoming more available in the wine industry we predict that this Malbec will be a popular one here at Suesey Street this year. Produced by the world’s most awarded organic wine producer, this is a blend of French and Argentinean winemaking traditions. It includes layers of black cherry, mocha and mineral along with notes of raspberry, chocolate and spices. A classic example of an Argentinian Malbec.  

Best paired with our Suesey Street Steak served with Peppercorn Sauce, Triple Cooked Chips with House Salad.

Region: Argentina

Semillon Late Harvest Cullen 2013

This wine is made from handpicked cane cut Semmillon grapes with the fruit quality and condition being exceptional, reflecting an excellent growing season. The wine was naturally fermented and then chilled to finish. Delicious if drank now however this wine will gain further complexity if it is aged for anything up to 10 years. 

Best served with our delicious Seared Foie Gras with Connemara Air Dried Ham, Sage & Onion Crisps along with Pickled Fruit.

Region: Australia

The Vines Shiraz / Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot 2014

This Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is a soft, flavoursome wine with notes of succelent berries and ripe fruit flavours.  These fruity flavours are balanced with soft oak and add dept and structure to this already delicious white wine.  

Best paired with one of our favourite vegetarian dishes. Roast Red Pepper Cashel Blue and Spinach Tart with toasted seed and rocket leaves.

Region: Australia

Rioja Reserva Conde de Valdemar 2011

This dark, rich, textured red has aromatics of black autumn berries and toasted oak. It is aged for 20 months in American and French oak barrels and is a dry wine with a spicy twist and is firm and full-bodied. It has a long lingering after taste with an abundance of fruit flavour.

Best paired with our chefs favourite Seared Wicklow Venison served with Sticky Braised Red Cabbage Black Pudding Fritter and Chestnut Dressing.

Region: Spain

Chablis Vieilles Vignes Daniel Etienne Defaix 2014

A rich, complex white wine with notes of citrus and mineral. This wine has been described as refreshing and balanced with a gorgeous golden colour. This wine comes from the oldest domaine in Chablis, tracing its origins back to 1610. This wine is light and refreshing, perfect for meaty fish dishes.

Best served with our Pan Fried Fillet of Halibut along with Chanterelle Mushrooms, Mussels, Cavolo Nero and Herb and Cucumber Verjus Butter Sauce

Region: France

Quinta Do Noval LBV Douro 2012

We have stocked some of the finest vintage ports here at Suesey Street but this one is our all-time favourite. It has been aged for five years in wooden vats, instead of the usual two years for a Vintage Port. This extra ageing has resulted in some amazing flavours including notes of black cherry, aromas of fine black fruits and sweet spices, fine tannins along with having a unique freshness. Interestingly this bottle will continue to age beautifully if left for a special occasion but will still taste delicious if drank right away.  

Best served with our popular Cheeseboard.

Region: Portugal



A note from our Suesey Street wine expert and restaurant Manager Karel Geoghegan

“Choosing wines can be difficult when you don’t know the type of food you will be eating with it. I would suggest that fruity reds always be served with a meaty dish as their flavours will compliment each other. Lighter reds pair better with ‘meaty’ fish and vegetarian dishes. We have lots of delicious wines on our menu here at Suesey Street and we pride ourselves in the ability to pair dishes with some of the world’s finest wines. Drinking wines from a specific region will also pair well with food or produce from that said region.” 

At Suesey Street, we pride ourselves in using the finest suppliers and produce that Ireland has to offer. That is why our ingredients are always farm-fresh and seasonal.

It has been a challenging few months but we are delighted to say that we'll be opening our doors to guests from July 1st, and we can’t wait to see you. We do hope you got to sample our ‘Stay at Home Supper Club’ throughout the lockdown and you will still be able to order some of our house favourites direct to your door over the next couple of months but if you’re feeling like getting out of the house for a fine dining lunch or dinner then book online or give us a call.

We will have some amazing new dishes for you to try and some of our classics that you can’t live without.

Your safety and the safety of our staff is paramount so we will be following all HSE and recommended Health & Safety Guidelines in order to keep you all safe and comfortable. Be sure to keep an eye on any and all safety signage throughout the restaurant and have respect for all of the other diners that will be joining you as we reopen. As always, you can expect a very warm welcome from all of the Suesey Street Team.  We're looking forward to seeing lots of familiar faces and some new ones too.
