At the end month of September, ended up the month by enjoying wine tasting moments as there are about 80 types of wine at 9 Vine Wine Festival 2018 that took place for about 3 weeks. The event took place at Ampang where there are a stretch of F&B shops that the partner with for wine and dine pairing over the weeks. There are 2 vineyard that I am targeting as they are quite well known for the flavours profile that I have yet tried before.
Entry for the event was only RM 118 for the tasting that starts from 11am – 6pm which I find quite worth it.
First stall to start off with mild is with Da Vincci cocktail tester with mixologist from Singapore
The vineyard owner Sartori from Italy. Their wine profile is quite interesting.
Balduzzi is no stranger to me as they are pretty solid wine that will never go wrong if you do not know what to buy in the wine rack. They are more towards slightly stronger notes. Shiraz is pretty good for this brand.
New Zealand wine
Heartland from South Australia.
Principle from Boschendal walks us through on his range.
This is one of the brand that I am aiming for. Boschendal as they are one of a award winning wine that also founded all the way back in 1685 in South Africa. Looking at a vineyard which is more than 300 years old.
Among the showcase, this still remain as my main favourite and we ended up bought 8 bottles from this stall. My personal favourite are their Boschendal Caberne Souvignon 2015 and Boschendal Chardonnay 2017.
Second brand that I am aiming for is The beautiful Great Southern James Halliday is a 5 star Winery that produces RockCliffe from Western Australia. Love their selection of wine and added into my list now for some easy wine to drink.
With vineyard owner of Rockcliffe.
