The event is held in the rarefied surroundings of Cape Mentelle’s cabernet cellar and gardens. This year the tasting and lunch will be graced with special guest wine speakers James Halliday, Joe Czerwinski and Tyson Stelzer amongst other local and international wine media.
For wine lovers and aficionados this exclusive celebration of all things Cabernet is the showstopper event of the Margaret River Gourmet Escape presented by Audi.
The day begins with an elaborate ‘blind tasting’ of 20 exquisite cabernets from vintage 2013 (which by all accounts was a cracker year for Margaret River reds) across 3 brackets. The world’s finest cabernet producing regions will feature, including Bordeaux, Napa, Tuscany, Coonawarra and of course Margaret River.
Following the morning tasting, palates are refreshed with a flute of Veuve Clicquot champagne in the winery’s native gardens, before moving into the long lunch embracing exceptional Margaret River produce expertly matched to the stunning cabernets from the tasting.
Amongst the confirmed wine on show so far are legendary producers such as Château Margaux, Château Cos d’Estournel, Château La Mission Haut-Brion, Château Léoville Las Cases, Ridge Monte Bello, Sassicaia and Ornellaia.
Guests will also take home a bottle of Cape Mentelle’s yet-to-be-released 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon. This is the ultimate celebration of wine and food.
