On Saturday 16 June, toast farewell to the Corsini Collection over a magnificent Italian feast.
Renowned winemaker, Juniper, Margaret River, has matched their award-winning wines to a five-course degustation menu that features fresh and innovative Italian cuisine.
Hal Bibby of Juniper, Margaret River says, “Our chief Winemaker, Mark Messenger has selected across our range to pair with the menu designed by Faith Nichols from Comestibles.
“In keeping with the Corsini theme, our first pairings are with two Fianos, an Italian white variety made in differing styles. The gold medal-winning Juniper Small Batch Fiano 2017 which is a vibrant and refreshing style will complement the delicate components of every aspect of the first course,” says Bibby.
“The Higher Plane Fiano 2017– also a gold medal winner – is a more complex wine that will amplify the flavours in the delicate risotto and chicken brodo superbly, its sapidity echoing the accompanying garnishes.”
“Our third course matching challenges convention, but should be sensational. We are pairing our Gold medal winning Juniper Estate Semillon 2007 with the honey glazed loin of lamb, as bottle age has magnified the richness in this wine to make it the perfect foil to the various elements in this dish with its body and honied development.”
“The softness, depth and breadth of the flavour of the Juniper Estate Shiraz 2012 will pull together the various components of the chicken dish magnificently.”
“Our final pairing features a dish that could not be more appropriate for the Juniper Estate Cane Cut Riesling 2017. It is made to retain acidity to corset the sweetness in the wine so that it is clean and refreshing.”
Limited to only 50 seats, this superb send-off will be set in the Corsini exhibition entrance, surrounded by immersive palace photo backdrops – steps away from the prized collection.
Guest will have exclusive private access to the exhibition with AGWA Guru Guides on hand for insights into the works of art.
Stefano Carboni, AGWA Director, says, “This is a unique way to experience the exhibition and immerse yourself in Italian culture. The first event was a sell-out success, and I know interest is high in this second more intimate opportunity.”
It’s a brilliant way to say ciao to your favourite works in the Corsini Collection.
Every ticket purchased will also go into the draw to win an amazing Gallery hamper valued at $250 and features two bottles of wine from Juniper, Margaret River, Corsini inspired gifts and beautifully illustrated hardcover Italian themed catalogues.
