Close out the evening how it started: raw. However, the granita and recommended beverage for this desert course will redefine what is possible with oysters.

Raw
Strawberry-Tonic Granita Infusion image

This infusion starts with a strawberry granita base which is then highlighted by the Frey family's famous homemade tonic. The result is a subtly sweet & complex granita.

Aged over 90 days in caves, Roquefort Cheese is a rich and savory cheese that accentuates the sweeter pairings in this course.

Paired Wine - Sauternes

This "sticky", as desert wines are at times informally referred, comes from Barsac France. The Sauternes is understated and wonderfully nuanced. With notes of lemon, apricot, passionfruit and bright floral accents, this elegant wine pairs well with the granita and Roquefort cheese.
