Bali's Four Seasons Resorts Bali at Jimbaran Bay will host a special wine-paired dinner on Thursday, May 26, 2005, featuring Western Australia's Karriview & Frankland wines under the stars at the Resort's Poolside area. A TRIO OF APPETIZERS
The Food and The Wines
The Resort's Executive Chef, Patrick Boucher and his talented kitchen brigade have created a special menu in collaboration with visiting food consultant Scott Webster, widely considered a leading expert of Australian cuisine. Scott opened the critically acclaimed and award-winning Australian restaurant Osia in London's West End theatre district. His culinary style combines superb primary products and indigenous ingredients with Australia's multi-cultural culinary diversity, creating dishes which, when tasted and sampled, reflect a truly Australian cuisine.
Also on hand for the special evening will be Hunter Smith, CEO and Chief Wine Maker from the Karriview and Frankland Wineries, located in the Denmark region of Western Australia.
A closely-planted vineyard, Karriview was the first in its region to produce Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with the 1989 vintage. Production remains limited, with the emphasis on premium wines of high quality.
Franklin Estate was established in 1988 by Barrie Smith and Judi Cullam, and is located on an Isolation Ridge vineyard, part of a 3000 acre property in the Frankland River.
