The Restaurant at The Legian continues its popular tradition of presenting premier wines in combination with innovative menus by presenting another four-course wine dinner on Friday, October 29, 2004.THE MENU
The Resort's fabled Executive Chef Nam has created a menu to complement carefully selected fine wines from Western Australia's Voyager Estate and Victoria's Bass Phillip wineries.
Located on the ocean swept plains of Margaret River, an area accounting for 23% of Australia's premium wine production, Voyager Estates is known for its outstanding Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Semillon, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot.
Shepherding the wines on their journey from Western Australia and presenting them to the guests attending the dinner will be Mr. Clifford Royle, Voyager Estate's winemaker and Australia's Winemaker of the Year 2003.
Named after two famous early explorers of Australia, Bass Phillip is located 150 kilometers southeast of Melbourne, an area well-suited to the cultivation of the Pinot Noir grape. Grapes produced exclusively using organic methods result in eight individual styles of wine, generally requiring six to twelve years of cellaring to reach their peak.
Phillip Jones, widely regarded as Australia's best Pinot Noir winemaker, the owner of Bass Phillip's and a finalist in the "Qantas Winemaker of the Year Awards" will be attending the Bali dinner to personally present his finely crafted wines.
