James Halliday's Top 100 Tasting

From: 22 Nov 2016 Until: 28 Nov 2016

Authored by: Anonymous

The hotly anticipated release of James Halliday’s Top 100 Wines was revealed today, November 19. This year, we’re giving you the exclusive chance to taste a selection of these top-rated drops in Melbourne three days after the announcement and in Sydney the following week.

More than $50,000 worth of wines will be poured on the night, including those from James' list and a selection of winners from this year's Halliday Wine Companion Awards. Add matched canapes and the chance to chat to some of the country's leading winemakers, and these are shaping up to be two incredible nights.

Guests will enjoy the selection alongside a specially matched menu that includes freshly shucked oysters, cured-salmon blinis, smoked-duck tartlettes and chicken and leek pies, all prepared by The Big Group and Royal Randwick Racecourse's award-winning chefs. 

For $140, you'll sample an array of wines that includes bottles yet to be released to the public and vintage Champagnes. A Riedel glass is yours to keep, and the night will conclude with a cheese smorgasbord and glass of Piper-Heidsieck.

Tickets are strictly limited. Secure your place now.
