harewood estate wines and french cheese tasting 9th september 2009
New World meets Old World…
The Vine Press together with Fourth Village Providores Mosman recently presented a fun and educational sit down tasting of a selection of small regional Farmhouse cheeses from farms and affineurs from all over France, expertly matched with wines from Harewood Estate from Denmark, Western Australia.
Winemaker James Kellie cut his teeth at Howard Park before he and his family purchased the Harewood vineyard in 2003. Hard work is paying off with extraordinary success in 6 years receiving trophies galore and the coveted 5 red star rating (the highest recognition possible from Australia’s most influential wine critic James Halliday awarded to the top 7% of wineries). Easy to see why the Great Southern region has unmatched versatility and quality for winemaking.
These great new world wines were paired with an array of cheeses from famous cheese making regions such as Normandy, Ill de France and the Basque region of the Pyrenees Mountains and presented by Fourth Villages cheese specialists.
