PREMIUM AUSTRALIAN NEW ARRIVALS
As you've probably noticed, this month is all about Australia. Tonight is about going all out, at the real high end of the market. Our Fine Wine manager Regan McCaffery, will be presenting an exciting selection of 8 new special wines, most of which have never been seen in New Zealand before. We will be covering a range of varieties, all made in very small quantities, often from extremely old vineyards. We'll be starting with the House of Arras EJ Carr Late Disgorged Methode Traditionelle. Made in Tasmania this is the most expensive sparkling wine in Australia. Followed by one of their finest Chards for over 30yrs, the Eileen Hardy Chardonnay 2015. Then we taste two interesting varieties. Hewitson Old Garden Mourvedre 2013, from the oldest Mourvedre vineyard in the world planted 1853. Followed by some mere 81yr old Clare Valley vines, in the Kilikanoon Kelly 1932 Grenache 2013. Two fine Cabernet Sauvignon are up next, Kilakanoon Tregea Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, and the long awaited arrival in NZ of the Grant Burge Barossa Shadrach Cabernet Sauvignon 2010. We finish with two wines from Australias most famous grape. The Kaesler Alte Reuban Shiraz 2013 from an vineyard in Marananga planted 1899. Then the rare Hewitson Mother Vine Monopole Shiraz 2015, a clonale selection from a single ancient 1853 Shiraz vine. Forget all you think you know about Australian wines, these will blow you away.
