Among Australia's collection of die-hard wine producers, Stephen and Helen Palmer are arguably Western Australia most indefatigable growers. Since establishing Palmer's Vineyard in the Willyabrup Valley of Margaret River in 1977, they've managed to prevail - overcoming and surviving cyclones, grasshopper plagues and an interregnum in which they raised thoroughbred horses – before their current status as successful cultivators of 15 hectares of classic wine varietals.

In order to share the rich bounty of their harvest with Bali's many wine enthusiasts while simultaneously taking a well-deserved rest break on the paradise island, Stephen and Helen are acting as co-hosts of a special wine evening at The Legian on Bali's Kerobokan Beach on Saturday, June 4, 2005. A special vintners' dinner, prepared by the Resort's celebrity chef , Nam Nguyen, will complement four memorable Palmer Wines - Chardonnay, Semillon Sauvignon Blanc and an outstanding Merlot – many receiving awards and accolades at major wine shows held across Australia.

Amuse Bouche

The casual evening of great food and outstanding wines commences at 7 p.m. on the seaside terrace of the Resort with an initial tasting of Palmer's Wine accompanied by a selection of amuse bouche prepared by Chef Nam. Literally, "mouth amusement" - amuse bouche are a range of innovative small bites that set the stage for the delicacies that awaits later at the table d'hote.

The Wines

The Margaret River's unique geography plays host to several micro-climates traditionally conducive to the cultivation of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and, increasingly, Merlot and Verdelho - four of which will be showcased at this special dinner.

The Menu

Yellow Fin Tuna - Fennel-Crusted Tuna Salad Nicoise My Style

2004 Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Spiny Lobster - Steamed Lobster with a Rhubarb-Ginger Chardonnay Sauce

2003 Chardonnay

Wagyu Beef Truffle-Braised Beef Cheek with Truffled Taro Root

2000 Merlot

Cheese - Selection of Australian Cheeses

2003 Shiraz

The Legian Blend Coffee or Selection of Tea


The Cost and Reservations

The cost for the four-course dinner and pre-dinner reception on Saturday, June 4, , including Palmer Wines, tax and service is Rp. 550,000 per person (approximately US$56.00)

During the dinner, Stephen and Helen Palmer will speak about their wines and present a leather wine bag containing two bottle of Palmer's 2003 Shiraz to a winner selected from among the evening's guests.

Seating is limited and reservations and additional information can be obtained by calling The Legian’s F&B Coordinator, Mr. Dinno Lkollo, at telephone ++62-(0)361-730662 (extension #768) or via the e-mail link provided.
