Cost: Cost will be $70 for AWS members and $83 for non-member guests.
Join us for an evening of chasing goblins, ghouls and ghosts away with wine, food and friends.
This night is our Halloween inspired tasting event, showcasing a strong selection of d'Arenberg offerings.
d'Arenberg red wines are noted for their sophisticated, fragrant, fruit flavoured wines with excellent palate texture, free of excess oak. Long, lively, gritty and youthful tannins full of fragrant fruit and mineral notes, melding seamlessly with complex spice, game and earthy body.
We are reaching deep into the AWS cellar, bringing you premium wines, some that have been waiting over ten years to make an appearance and are the very best our cellar has to offer.
We will be staging two spooky good d'Arenberg dominant tasting flights.
One will be a vertical sampling of the iconic The Dead Arm - vintages 2003, 2004 and 2005. The second is a tasting of other d'Arenberg offerings - Laughing Magpie 2006, The High Trellis 2006 and The Custodian 2012.
Each of the two flights will also be augmented by an aptly named mystery wine for your enjoyment.
Good wines are intended to be consumed with good food. So for this evening, the first flight will be accompanied by an assortment of Charcuterie, selected cheeses, olives and dried fruit. The second flight, will have appetizer sized Braised Beef on roasted garlic mashed potatoes.
A reception wine will be served at 18:30 hrs and the formal tastings will begin at 19:00 hrs.
