Dear Cellar Club / Press List Member,
It’s that time of the year again, vintage is over, the vines have gone to sleep in the frosty ground and we’re about to launch our new season GUNDOG ESTATE wines.
This year’s release includes the GUNDOG ESTATE 2011 Rosé, up to its usual delicious standard, our Canberra Region flagship wine, the GUNDOG ESTATE 2009 Shiraz, now a year older and carrying a bag of Wine Show awards, and another year of the beautiful dry-white Semillon that we make with grapes from our Hunter Valley vineyard: the GUNDOG 2011 Hunter’s Semillon. We will also be introducing the first bottling of GUNDOG 2011 Semi-Sweet Semillon, a new creation from Winemaker Matt Burton that is already starting to create a stir amongst wine writers.
You’re invited to come along to the launch and have a swill, sniff and spit of our new range of red, white and pink wines.
Matt, who carries the mantle of 2010 Hunter Valley Rising Star Winemaker of the Year, will drop in from the stratosphere to introduce and chat about the new wines.
79 Elliot Street (Cnr. Darling Street)
Saturday 25th June from midday until 4.00 pm
This is the best bit. This is a free event for all the Sydney friends of GUNDOG, and their mates, who might be interested in coming along and trying the wines.
Chef Somer Sivrioglu will be providing delicious mezze style snacks for the afternoon, many matched specifically to the Shiraz, Rosé and Semillon wines.
We’d love to see you at Efendy Restaurant on Saturday June 25 for a few hours of fun and fine food and wine tasting. And please bring along friends and aunties.
It will help Somer with his catering if he knows how many are coming. If you have the time drop us an RSVP e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or a voice message or SMS to 0412 371666.
Look forward to seeing you there,
Geoff Burton for
The Burton Family
