Q. Which white grape can be dry & aromatic, complex & sweet or even splashed into a red wine for extra lift?
A. The Jewel of the Rhône – Viognier of course!
Join us for a rare opportunity & a Peninsula first that will showcase the many guises of Viognier, a grape variety that has often been lost in the shadows of more popular Burgundian varieties but is now starting to see some of the spotlight as wine drinkers become more knowledgeable, curious & adventurous.
Throughout an amiable evening of food & wine our special guests will reveal why the variety many are frightened to pronounce has piqued & retained their attention across three generations on the Peninsula with each generation bringing their own narrative: Australian Viognier pioneer Bails Myer AC (Elgee Park), widely acclaimed winemaker icon Lindsay McCall (Paringa Estate) & exciting new kids on the block Alex & Peter (Brothers McLean).
7pm FRIDAY 20th SEPTEMBER 2019
$130 pp all inclusive
four courses beautifully matched to eight Viogniers from Baillieu, Elgee Park, Paringa Estate & Brothers McLean
