d'Arenberg Wine Dinner

The next event on the radar at Wineaway is a d'Arenberg dinner on Friday 12 June 2009.

d'Arenberg is one of those Australian wineries that I really appreciate. I visited their beautiful cellar door in McLaren Vale a few years ago, but wasn't lucky enough to enjoy lunch on the verandah overlooking the vineyards. They have the most amazing range of wines, with original, quirky names like the Laughing Magpie shiraz, the Derelict Vineyard grenache, the Broken Fishplate sauvignon blanc and the Moneyspider roussanne (my favourite name).

In attendance on the night will be Nick James-Martin from d'Arenberg. Wines on tasting during the dinner will be:

2008 The Hermit Crab Viognier Marsanne
2008 The Last Ditch Viognier
2007 Lucky Lizard Chardonnay
2007 Footbolt Shiraz
2006 d'Arry's Original Shiraz Grenache
2006 High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon
2006 Galvo Garage Cabernet blend
2006 Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon
2006 The Ironstone Pressings Grenache Shiraz Mouvedre
2006 The Dead Arm Shiraz
2008 The Noble Wrinkled Riesling

Tickets are $95, which you will need to purchase directly from Wineaway.
