Virtual vertical tasting with Meg Brodtmann, MW

August 15 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

$99

If you tasted a wine, would you know which flavours came from the environment, weather, winemaking or age? Tasting a “vertical” is the best way to learn just that, and we’ve enlisted the best teacher to show you how.

We’ve dug into our museum wines for 3 top vintages of Cabernet Sauvignon to taste and compare. Guiding you through this tasting will be one and only Meg Brodtmann, Master of Wine. Not only does Meg have the highest wine designation any person can earn, but also decades of experience wine making and educating around the world; and far from what you might expect… she’s one of the most down-to-earth people we know.

Meg will guide you through a tasting of the 2015, 2016 and 2017 vintages of Rob Dolan White Label Cabernet Sauvignon. You’ll learn how vintage conditions impacted each wine, which flavours are as a result of age, how to pair cabernet with food, and how to tell which wines are worth cellaring. She can also answer any other burning questions you have about wine generally, or her experience undertaking what might be the world’s hardest exam!

For $99 you’ll receive:

  • Three vintages of Rob Dolan White Label Cabernet Sauvignon, worth $135
  • Zoom entry for interactive tasting with Meg
  • Free Shipping* or pick up from Cellar Door

*Only Melbourne area for delivery. Last day to order Tuesday 11 August.

Winter chills getting to you? Our Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon is the answer. It's rich with persistent dark red fruits, mulberry, cedar and spice. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It warms you from the inside out and is perfectly paired with all your favourite Winter dinners. Rob's pick at the moment are Jude's slow cooked pulled beef brioche burgers! ⁣⁣

A MASSIVE thank you is in order for every single person who contributed to our Big Roast for Cystic Fibrosis this year!⁣

We had to put our thinking caps on for our Big Roast this year with the Cystic Fibrosis community being forced into strict lockdown rules until there is a vaccine, so we took it back to its roots and asked everyone to host their own Big Roast!⁣

From our corporate sponsors @parkes.property and @warrandytecommunitybankbranch, all the local businesses that donated items for the auction and raffle, every single person that registered to host a roast to everyone who bid on any of the items in our online auction, THANK YOU! ⁣

Together, we raised $22,421 to go towards The Royal Children's Hospital Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust and we couldn't have down it without you! ⁣

Meg Brodtmann is the newest addition to our team – a Master of Wine (MW) which is the highest decree a person can achieve in wine. Meg will be hosting a virtual Vertical Cabernet tasting on August 15th. You’ll learn how vintage conditions impacted the wine, which flavours are as a result of age, how to pair cabernet with food, and how to tell which wines are worth cellaring. She can also answer any other burning questions you have about wine generally, or her experience undertaking what might be the world’s hardest exam! ⁣

Head to the links in our bio for more info on either Meg’s role as the first Australian, female MW and her exclusive tasting experience. ⁣

Catch Rob on the right day and he'll chew your ear off! And most of the time he'll chat about wine, but don't be surprised if there's a bit of footy, cricket, maybe even a little philosophy life lesson if you're really lucky! ⁣

Arneis hails from an Italian region called Piedmont, which is in the North West of Italy. It thrives in cool climate conditions and is often referred to as the ‘little rascal’ in the vineyard, as it can be problematic to grow with low yields and susceptible to disease. The grapes grow in small bunches so the inside of the tight bunches are at high risk of developing disease and they also have very thin skins which poses many potential problems. ⁣
⁣⁣
Due to it being a difficult grape to grow, we are very lucky to get our hands on some from long-term grower, Murrumong Estate. Murrumong is located in Gruyere and around 2.5 acres of the land is dedicated to Arneis vines.⁣
⁣⁣
Drop into our Cellar Door to pick up a bottle or you can purchase it via the link in our bio. ⁣

Available individually or yours free when you purchase a dozen wines from our Cellar Door or online.⁣
