At Dombeya tweet and meet

Lovely welcome drink at the Dombeya tweet and meet evening, an MCC called "Andre" from the 2004 vintage that spent 4 years on the lees. Then we tasted two New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs and the Dombeya 2009 Sav. Blanc. The two New Zealand wines were very complex and slightly wooded, from older vintages, and worked wonderfully with all the food. The Dombeya Sauv Blanc is made to enjoy and drink sitting next to the pool.

Then the big guns came out - the Haskell red wines.

The Haskell Aeon is a gorgeous shiraz that is developing into a very fine wine.

The food that was presented with the wine was out of this world. Snack platters you can only dream about. Unfortunately I never took any pictures of the food. I must say compliments to chef Corli and her staff. What a wonderful evening was had by all. If you ever get a chance to go and eat at Dombeya, don't hesitate, go straight there and enjoy the good food and wine plus the view thrown in for nothing.
