TASTING & EVENTS

BOLLINGER | WELLINGTON

The House of Bollinger has been making Champagne since 1829, with a predominance of Grand Cru sites and an attention to detail. The wines that Bollinger produces are sophisticated and complex. The wines from Bollinger are a result of rigorous attention to detail and the House accepts nothing less than perfection. As well as a Royal warrant awarded in 1884 they have also obtained the highly regarded Patrimoine Vivant (living heritage) this is a seal of quality which recognises exceptional craftsmanship and skill. We are very lucky to have Guy De Rivoire, the Global Sales Director of Bollinger, presenting this exceptional tasting.

SOUTHERN RHONE | WELLINGTON

The Southern Rhône is an area often overlooked due to the famous Syrah regions which make up the Northern Rhone. The Southern Rhone is a very different animal than its Northern counterpart with a more Mediterranean climate. In the North Syrah is king and in the South if there were to be a king it would be Grenache; the wines are warm and rich but are incredibly approachable. Chateauneuf du Pape is probably the most famous of the appellations and although they can use 13 varieties they tend to use mainly Grenache Syrah Mouvedre. They also produce Rosé and some white wine but it is the reds that are the most popular. For this tasting we have chosen three wines from three appellations.

2014 BORDEAUX BLANC - NEW ARRIVALS | WELLINGTON

The 2014 Bordeaux vintage has finally arrived, while variable it's still the best since 2009/2010. This year we thought we would start by taking a look at the fabulous dry white wines of the region. This is the 10th successful vintage in a row for these unheralded and underrated beauties. Produced from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillion with their subtle scent of beeswax and lanolin, and ability to age for decades, a style almost polar opposite from their fruity new world cousins. We will be trying some of the very best of the vintage in tonight's lineup, including the rare dry wine of Chateau d'Yquem, and the very first public release of Chateau Palmer Blanc (previously only for the owners and guests of the Chateau).

CHURCH ROAD TOM - 2014 RELEASE WITH CHRIS SCOTT | WELLINGTON

TOM is one of New Zealand's most iconic (and expensive) wines, produced only in the greatest years. Named in honour of the legendary winemaker Tom McDonald, the original Cabernet Merlot blend was joined by the TOM Chardonnay in 2006, and the stunning TOM Syrah in 2013. That vintage was hailed as once in a lifetime but 2014 was arguably even better, these twin years being the greatest ever produced in the Hawkes Bay. Tonight we will have senior winemaker Chris Scott here (NZ Wine Estate winemaker of the year 2016) to present the three 2014 TOM wines to us. We will also be trying the same three varietals from the excellent Grand Reserve range. Don't miss this rare chance to try these together.
