Gatt produce some of the most internationally sought wines from the Barossa. Winning a myriad of awards with Ray Gatt at the helm alongside winemaker David Norman.
Whilst a lack of a cellar door means theirs is a harder to reach winery, for the Barossa Vintage Festival, they are offering a unique opportunity. You can head to their Barossa Valley vineyards for a vertical tasting in an open marquee right by the vines that produce the grapes of what you’re tasting.
Tastings take 30 minutes and during that time there will be multiple vintages of Riesling, Cabernet and Shiraz from the High Eden vineyards to taste. The event will also offer magnums and museum releases, along with current release wines.
With David’s wealth of knowledge, this is a great stop for Barossa Vintage travellers to get a figurative and literal taste of some of Barossa’s best offerings. The location is also extremely central, so you have wealth of other events to head to.
It’s a rare opportunity, and something wine connoisseurs will flock towards. The vertical tastings cost $25 but that is refunded with the purchase of any six or more wines on the day. To secure your spot, booking is recommended, but it’s still relatively flexible for the punctuality challenged.
The Value of a Vintage will be taking place on Sunday April 28 at 11am, at the Barossa site on 39 Siegersdorf Rd, Nuriootpa. Head here to book tickets.
