Picture this: an exclusive degustation dinner for 12 held at a grand villa overlooking one of the world’s most iconic beaches. Guest of honour: a fifth generation winemaker talking you through a suite of limited edition and sold out vintages of award winning wines. Could it be St Tropez, Lampedusa or Ipanema? No, Noosa.
The not-to-be-missed dinner will be held at Noosa’s Outrigger Little Hastings Street Resort and Spa on January 31. Victoria Angove of Angove Family Winemakers will introduce the lucky diners to Angove’s 2012 The Medhyk Shiraz and other award winning wines from the South Australian label. The event is reserved for just 12 guests and will be held in Outrigger’s five-level Grand Villa.
Dr William Thomas Angove began the family business in 1886 as an experiment to find a tonic for his patients. Angove’s was the first winery to be established in the Riverland. Over more than 125 years of operation, it has grown to be Australia’s 16th largest winery and the country’s 12th largest wine exporter by branded wine sales.
2011 saw the release of the first vintage of the old vine McLaren Vale Shiraz ‘The Medhyk’. It honours the Angove Company’s founder (Medhyk is Cornish for doctor). The 2012 The Medhyk is an intense inky purple and has aromas of blackberries, bitter chocolate and liquorice.
Angove’s promote minimal chemical intervention in the vineyard, and in the winery. 36 hectares of the Nanya vineyard are certified organic with a further 30 hectares in conversion.
Two bedroom villas at the resort feature open plan living and private garage with sprawling balconies designed to take in the breathtaking views.
The exclusive degustation dinner is priced at $2012 per couple and includes two nights accommodation in a luxurious two-bedroom villa within the Outrigger’s private Villa and Penthouse collection on January 30 and 31.
