Wickmans Fine Wine Auctions and Rare Wine Dinners have come together for one night in Sydney to present a special vertical tasting of one Australia’s greatest premium wines, Mount Mary Vineyard, Quintet. At this special dinner you will have the opportunity to try the Mount Mary Quintet from  2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2008. We may even just tell you how you can get some of these great back vintages for your very own cellar at a very good price. Provenance guaranteed of course!

The evening will start in true Rare Wine Dinners style with a great champagne from the house of Perrier Jouet. From here we will move to the vineyards of Burgundy and Negociant Tollinche Freres of Nuits Saint Georges and one of their 1992 White Burgundy 1er Cru St Aubin. This will be followed by a 1979 Pistorus, Gevrey Chambertin AC red Burgundy. Now that our palettes are wet and appetites for wine are in full swing we move to the first of our Bordeaux for the evening and the great vintage of 1986 from Chateau La Lagune, a superb Grand Cru wine and a great vintage in Bordeaux.

Now we will move to our first Mount Mary flight of the evening and taste a trio of vintages in vertical format including 2003, 2004 and 2005. All 3 vintages are regarded as very very good vintages for this wine but each with its own unique personality due to the varying vintage conditions of each of these years. From here we will move to a flight of wines including the Chateau Giscours 2001 and the 2005 Chateau La Lagune, two fine examples of modern Bordeaux.

Next we move to the mighty magnums with a mini vertical of Mount Mary Quintet in rare magnum format and taste 2007 beside 2008, two more great vintages for this cult classic premium Australian wine. When it comes to an Australian wine that follows in the foot steps of the greats of Bordeaux there may be no closer contender than the great Quintet from Mount Mary Vineyards in the Yarra Valley of Victoria. This dinner will give you the opportunity to try 6 vintages of this wine along side 3 vintages of Bordeax that are closest in style to that of the house of Mount Mary.

To help you along with your dessert at the end of the night we have enlisted some assistance from one of the great sweet wines of the world, straight out of Germany a 1983 Mosel Saar Ruwer Beerenauslese Riesling, dripping with honey drenched apricot and tropical fruits this should be the perfect end to a night of some very serious high quality wines.
