Masterclass Affair with Granite Belt Wines

The highly acclaimed bi-ennial Hilton Brisbane Masterclass starts again on Saturday 24 July 2010 and amongst the palate pleasers for the fortunate 1000 participants will be four wines from the Queensland wine capital.

The two-day culinary treat showcases the very best in wine and food.  On and each morning next weekend the sell-out Asian Affairs session kicks off at 9am.  Acclaimed restaurant chefs Luke Nguyen (Red Lantern, Sydney) and Martin Boetz (Longrain Melbourne and Sydney) will partner their creations with Granite Belt wines.  The man with the enviable (or unenviable) task of selecting the wines is session moderator and Master of Wine, Peter Scudamore-Smith.  These wines in Scud's selection have just left Stanthorpe:
  • Ballandean Estate 2009 Viognier
  • Robert Channon Wines 2009 Pinot Gris
  • Summit Estate 2007 Pinnacle Premium Red
  • Symphony Hill Wines 2009 Reserve Pinot Noir
