Wine tasting at Dombeya
This was not only a wine tasting it was a whole afternoon of great wines and food to match the wines. What a beautiful day after a whole week of rain. We started with a glass of Sauv Blanc and then Chardonnay to start our meal with. We started eating at about half past one and carried on until nearly five o'clock. We tasted a huge veriety of wines. We blind tasted 2 Bordeaux and then tasted Dombeya's own Bordeaux blend that was very similar in elagance but obviously southern hemisphere. The next wine was the Haskell 2007 Tri-Nations winning Shiraz. What a great wine. Cheese platters came out and a bottle of 1953 Jerepigo came out the celler to finish the day off.
