For what will be our last wine dinner of the year we have something truly exciting for you - winemaker Sam Middleton, from legendary Mount Mary Vineyards, is with us to host an exclusive dinner and tasting at Corella Restaurant. Join us on Tuesday the 22nd of October for an unforgettable evening, with sublime food (we were there last week for a function and it was absolutely divine!) and the superlative wines of the estate, including many back vintages, and a look at their brilliant new releases. You'll find the menu and the wines below (and boy do the notes read well!), alongside booking information. Places are limited, so we encourage you to move quickly. See you there!
A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of sitting down withMalescot St.-Exupéry's owners, Jean-Luc and Françoise Zuger, for avertical tastingof the estate'sphenomenal Margaux. What the event showed was wines of greatrichness, pure and fragrant, very forward, but framed byexcellent tanninsandmasterful oakintegration - we were completelysmittenwith the wines and felt you should not miss this opportunity to scoreback and current vintagesof well-priced, exceptional Margaux. You'll find below our comments on the wines in italic, followed by notes and points from the Wine Advocate, and, for more information on the estate, you can clickHERE. Please allow a good three months for delivery as the wines are comingstraight from the estatein a temperature controlled container.
We were recently graced by the presence of Vega Sicilia CEO Antonio Menendez for a fabulous dinner at Moda Brisbane, and, tasting the wines, we realized that we absolutely had to share them with you. If you're not familiar with the estate, suffice to say that it has often been described as the Château Lafite of Spain - and we couldn't agree more! From the more rustic Toro to their flagship Unico, the wines are polished, pure, effortless, and possess an impeccable sense of place. This offer is the perfect opportunity for you to grab the legendary wines of Vega Sicilia at a very advantageous price, including the very moreish Rioja collaboration with the Rothschild family, some back vintages and the last magnum of 2008 Unico!
