This year during Winter Reds, the Stirling Hotel hosted the ‘Pinot Long Lunch’, a five course extravaganza with each course matched with two wines from the Adelaide Hills ranging from Pinot Gris, Pinot Grigio and of course Pinot Noir.
The award winning 2015 ‘Uley Vineyard’ Pinot Noir was perfectly matched with a course of twice cooked duck breast, shiitake, beetroot, truffle and silverbeet. It was delicious, as were all the courses and wines.
It was great to see Lindsay seated amongst his winemaking peers, each talking with passion about their great love of the Pinot varietal, the region and how lucky we are to live in a region that not only produces some of the greatest wines in the world but also some of the best produce to match with them
Talking to Lindsay, he said he felt it was a great honour to be invited to speak and have the 2015 ‘Uley Vineyard’ Pinot Noir on show and well received – if you’re quick you might find a bottle or two in the Stirling Cellars.
The lunch was such a success it dragged into the early evening, not that anyone minded. Everyone is looking forward to next year with great enthusiasm, thanks to all who were involved in putting such a wonderful showcase and afternoon together.
