Prestigious G.H. Mumm Champagne party & wine launch coming soon this Christmas

Kick off the festive season at ‘Mumm Uncorked’ – an evening dedicated to one of the best and largest Champagne houses in the world.

While Christmas time is the time for giving, it’s also the time for giving ourselves great food and wine. Gingerbread houses, candy canes, honey glazed ham, and turkey with stuffing and cranberry sauce are only some of the Christmas traditions we know and love to eat. Best of all? We love to pop a bottle of bubbly to celebrate the year past and welcome the year to come.

To kick off the festive season and satisfy our craving for luxurious, premium wine, the National Wine Centre is hosting ‘Mumm Uncorked’ on Friday 16 December – an evening dedicated to one of the best and largest Champagne houses in the world.

As well as being a great opportunity to kickstart the festive season, Mumm Uncorked will also be the South Australian launch of Mumm Tasmania Brut Prestige.

The Mumm Tasmania is described to have a “sophisticated style with complex aromas of warm spices and red berries balanced by delicate acidity, resulting in a refined wine with powerful length”. Because of Tasmania’s fresh air and cool climate, the island is ideal for creating a sparkling with finesse and complexity such as this.

The Mumm Tasmania has been made by Australian winemaker Trina Smith, together with G.H. Mumm’s Chef de Cave, Laurent Fresnet, using three grape varieties from Northern Tasmania and the Pipers River area (Pinor Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier).

Guests will receive a glass of Mumm Tasmania on arrival, which is inclusive of their ticket price. While the Mumm Tasmania will be the star of the show, there will also be a range of sparkling and still wine, as well as beer, cider, cocktails, and festive food available for purchase.

As you nibble charcuterie on the Wine Centre lawns or outdoor terrace, your evening will be soundtracked by the great live musical talents provided by Entertainment Adelaide. Acting as the perfect venue for a last-minute office Christmas party, you’ll also be able to purchase Mumm Champagne by the glass or by the bottle.

Should you wish to take some of the new Mumm Tasmania home with you, we’ve been advised that it pairs excellently with natural oysters, seafood crudo, and fritto misto with lemon aioli.

A Limited number of tickets for Mumm Uncorked will be available on the door, but bookings are recommended. To learn more, visit the National Wine Centre website. For updates, follow the National Wine Centre on Facebook and Instagram.
