THERE is some­thing re­ally mag­i­cal about the process in­volved in mak­ing a ter­rine.

It’s one of those dishes where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, where in­gre­di­ents per­haps con­sid­ered less at­trac­tive on their own ben­e­fit from be­ing brought to­gether.

Per­haps it is be­cause their flavours and tex­tures be­come more con­cen­trated and com­ple­men­tary when pushed to­gether and left to de­velop in the con­fines of a sin­gle con­tainer.

Whatever it is, it works for many dif­fer­ent in­gre­di­ents in­clud­ing pork, duck and chicken, and makes an im­pres­sive look­ing dish that thank­fully ben­e­fits from be­ing pre-pre­pared by an anx­ious host.

Turn it out, slice and serve with cor­ni­chons, crusty bread and a glass of Jones Win­ery Mal­bec, and it will be hard for your guests to for­get.

This wine has a sub­lime aroma which is al­most sweet with plums, ripe berries and a touch of woody spice.

It has an inky, pur­ple tinged colour and won­der­ful savoury flavours of deep, dark berries, flecked with to­bacco and woody spice, en­hanced by the bitey tan­nins.

The wine is made from grapes grown in the Jones fam­ily’s 11 year old vine­yard in Ruther­glen from fruit which was har­vested and pro­cessed by hand.

Try it at the cel­lar door and with any luck there may be a ham hock ter­rine on the menu in their French in­spired restau­rant, which will make the whole ex­pe­ri­ence even eas­ier to en­joy.
