I got to check out the behind the scene, fun seeing the chefs preparing our meals
First wine of the day, Penfolds Koonunga Hill Autumn Riesling 2015. Floral at first then a profusion of lime and green apple.
Penfolds Bin 138 Shiraz Grenache Mataro 2013 pair with Anatra Caramellata, Grazed duck breast, carrots, confit shallots with spicy honey sauce. Medium deep color. Penfolds Bin 138 Shiraz Grenache Mataro 2013 is a seductive and voluminous wine with deep color, redcurrant, cranberry, musky plum, cola, aniseed aromas, fine loose knit chalky tannins and superb mid-palate richness.
Brasato Al Vino Rosso, Wine braised Black Angus short ribs with parsnip puree and baby beetroots pair with Penfolds St. Henri Shiraz 2011. The wine offers an impressive linear structure – tightly bound, with significant length. Boysenberry and cranberry red fruits are at ease with green olive and green melon. Granular tannins & other spices !!
I pop by the kitchen to see the final preparation of the dessert. So excited to see the platting process
Chef Roberto busy plating our desert, Cremoso Al Pistachio. Look so pretty!

If you are interested in wine, Wine tasting, and wine dinner is a good place to start. Wine tastings are popular because they override the limitations of sampling wine alone, at home. Wine dinners are fun and great. Follow Winecellars at their Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Winecellars-250763351615970 for future events and promotion
