It first started out with a booking for the wine tour via email. It was suggested if we would like to also have the set menu after our tour. $75 including wine tour. After careful consideration I though why not. I was going to go the $175 Discovery menu but you need a few hours and we didn’t have that luxury as we soon heading to Perth.
Our wine tour started with us meeting Tanja. Tanja took us though the whole process of wine making and how they prune the vines. And how the flagship Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are handpicked. We even got to taste some grapes and it was sweet as. You realize why it’s used in its flagship wines. We were taken around and shown how it and where the fermentation takes place. Where all the red wine is stored and how they place into the Oak barrels.
After the tour ended we it was onto wine tasting, this is usually done with and IPAD and self-paced. But since there were only two of us Tanja gladly explained everything to us. We learnt a lot today and my wife learnt she likes Chardonnay from Voyager estate.
After the tasting was done it was onto lunch. We had the autumn tour menu which had baked bread,
34°South olive oil and Estate made dukkah, I had the XO braised pork cutlet, apple kimchi salad and my wife had Market Fish which was barramundi. We also shared a dessert a Ginger cake with Turkish Ice-cream. What can I say the food was excellent and I’m disappointed I did not go the Discovery menu.
The estate was well maintained and spectacular, the service and food in the restaurant was excellent. But the real highlight was Tanja her knowledge was second to none taking the time to explain everything to us. Maybe we were just lucky it was only just us on the tour and nobody else. It was a very personalized service which made our experience the most enjoyable of all the wine tours to date. And we had been to sandalford estate, leeuwin Estate wine tours.
