Launching Detroit: an Otherness Wine Dinner.
Thursday, 17th August 2023, 6:30pm
At Otherness, we don’t have much ‘derivative’ in our DNA. Our most recent wine release ‘Detroit’ reinforces this.
Most new wines are crafted by a winemaking team; the vision and details are shot through to a marketing dept. A story is concocted which is then wrapped around the finished ‘product’.
Detroit gave us the opportunity to reverse this. I knew a great story, one of the Barossa’s best. So we wrapped a wine around a story.
Over dinner, we are going to spin out the story of Masterson. A Shiraz Cabernet made by the great Peter Lehmann during the 1978 vintage. I have a couple of bottles of that wine which will be opened on the night.
Marco Cirillo made Detroit for us. He’ll be there. And I’m in the process of recruiting other Masterson ‘connections’ for first-hand contemporaneous perspective.
Sam Smith and Emily Thomas will present another great Otherness Wine-Dinner menu of claret-friendly food.
If you enjoy a good tale and you’re fond of a claret, you’re going to love this!
Seats are strictly limited, so don’t linger!
