Experiencing the Ashbrook Estate Wine & Degustation Evening at Karma Kandara, Bali
If you called yourself a Bali frequent visitor, then the big name of Karma Kandara is not a new thing to hear. I was so excited with the invitation I received to attend the Ashbrook Estate Wine & Degustation Evening which was held last Friday March 21st 2014, located in the “di Mare” - the restaurant with the perfect setting for all occasions, dining and entertaining. Perched on a cliff, di Mare without a doubt has one of the most wonderful views in Bali.
The Ashbrook Estate is one of the quietest and highest achievers in Australia, maintaining excellent viticulture and fastidious winemaking. Established by the Devitt family in 1975, Ashbrook produced its first commercial wine (Riesling) in 1979 and its 30th vintage in 2008. Only grapes handpicked and grown on the Estate are used and all processing, winemaking, bottling and packaging are closely controlled using the Estate’s own state of the art facilities.
And i was over the moon could experience their best wines, started with a glass of Chardonnay 2011 in accompany with the appetizer. Shiraz 2007 for the main course: a plate of marvelous creamed rissoto Milanese & osso buco, loved the osso buco since it s my favorite Italian dishes to cook while I m at home. To accompany the caramelized white chocolate/yoghurt/lime/espresso as dessert, a glass of Merlot 2008 was a perfect ending of the night.
