d'Arenberg, 7th May

Vertical Masterclass and Degustation

d'Arenberg is offering the chance to discover the world of single vineyard Shiraz. 
Senior Winemaker Jack Walton will expertly guide you through a vertical masterclass of three wines from the Amazing Sites range, initially released in 2010. You will be among the first in the world to taste the 2014 vintages of The Bamboo Scrub Shiraz, The Amaranthine Shiraz and Shipsters’ Rapture Shiraz. Each of these wines are sourced from a single vineyard, a small plot of land with a unique flavour profile and personality.
Following the masterclass, d’Arry’s Verandah Restaurant will provide a sumptuous seven course degustation, brimming with local and seasonal produce. The menu will be complimented with wines from the extensive d'Arenberg range, varieties that have traditionally been produced in Italy and France, that now have strong foundations in the McLaren Vale region.
