    Child Cancer Foundation French wine tasting

    7:45 - 9:45 pm

    Venuechildcancer

    Amora Hotel, 70 Wakefield Street, Wellington, 6011. See map for directions.

    Cost

    $40.00

    Details

    This tasting was postponed last year.  It is now happening on Thursday 9 May at the Amora hotel.  Tickets are $40.  There are more details on the attached flyer.

    In addition to the wines we managed to get our hands on last year, we also now have:

    • Stony Ridge Larose 2000 (1) bottle - A Bordeaux cabernet sauvignon dominant blend from the Waiheke Island producer. Larose is widely regarded as NZ’s best take on a Bordeaux blend.  And it would want to be.  If you buy this from the vineyard cellar, it will set you back an eye watering $320 for a bottle of the 2000 vintage.  We managed to get hold of this little gem courtesy of a generous donation from a family who have a child with cancer.
    • JK (John Key) Pinot Noir 2009 (1) bottle - There’s nothing our PM can’t do….
    • Junction Road Point Noir (2) bottles - Southern Hawkes Bay pinot noir made by former All Black prop John Ashworth.
