Food and wine lovers rejoice! Anderson Hill is hosting a 6-course degustation inviting you on a journey of delicious local cuisine paired with their award-winning wine.
The Harvest Festival Feast degustation is taking over the winery on Saturday April 2 from 6pm, timing perfectly as the grape harvest wraps up.
Offering the best of seasonal and regional produce, the menu will be brought to guests by chef Matthew Hopkins.
“Our chef Matthew Hopkins has been really itching to have a chance to really show his skills off,” Anderson Hill marketing manager Seth Piszczuk said.
“He’s got a long resume of really great venues including Treasury 1860 and Bistro Dom.
“This will be his first flagship event at Anderson Hill, despite him having been with us for quite a while now and really turning up the dynamics of the regular menu.”
Each course of the 6-course degustation which is fully gluten free is expertly designed to showcase and complement one of Anderson Hill’s wines. The feast will kick off with Sparkling Chardonnay paired with smoked beetroot, followed by “Willy Wagtail” Sauvignon Blanc served with grapefruit sorbet to refresh the palette.
Next up will be a seafood bisque served with a glass of O-Series Chardonnay, which will be backed up with O-Series Pinot Noir paired with confit duck & locally foraged berries.
Moving on to the fifth course, Anderson Hill will be pouring their “Maggie’s Perch” Shiraz going perfectly with Adelaide Hills venison loin. To end the feast on a sweet note, their O-Series Shiraz will be served with a rich chocolate delice.
The 2018 O-Series Shiraz was awarded World’s Best Shiraz at the Decanter World Wine Awards in London, ending the night on a high note.
The degustation will take place in the last night of Daylight Savings. Seth said hosting the event on this night gives people the perfect opportunity to experience the sunset from the stunning views of the vineyard.
“We’d love to give people a chance to enjoy the sunset up here,” Seth said.
“As we’re one of the highest vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, the views at sunset are magical.
“The sun will be setting whilst the meal is taking place, really enhancing the sensory experience.”
If you won’t be able to make the trip on the Saturday to Anderson Hill, guests are welcome to indulge in another food and wine matching experience with wine matched canapes on offer from Wednesday to Sunday.
The canapes are also specially prepared by Matthew to suit the wines, welcoming you to immerse in the wine and food experience at a time that suits you.
The Harvest Festival Feast will take place on Saturday April 2 from 6pm.
