Super Tuscan Wine Dinner – Limited Seats

Since their release, the Super Tuscans have represented some of the best wines in Italy and the whole world. The term “Super Tuscan” was coined to define the new wave of wines from Tuscany. Rebelling against the constrictive laws of the time, these wine makers moved away from the ‘boring’ to make thrilling and iconic wines that we still enjoy today. They use grapes like Cabernet, Syrah, and Merlot, sometimes blended with their native Sangiovese to make wines that rival Bordeaux, Barolo, and Napa Valley for power, intensity and aging potential. Not to mention price! This is your chance to try some of these world beating wines. We’ll taste 5 Super Tuscans. Classics like Ornellaia and Cepparello, modern takes such as Ampeleia, Petro and Grattamacco. For palate calibration we’ll also enjoy one of the best Chianti Classicos on the market; Isole e Olena. Your host will be Phil Smith from The Wine Depository https://thewinedepository.com.au. Phil’s passion for wine and enthusiastic delivery will make for a compelling event. Phil’s style makes it easy for any wine lover to join in and feel at home, whether you are a master of wine, or just a master of drinking wine.

To complement these amazing wines Spencer & Co Wine Bar Provedore has crafted a Tuscan-inspired 4 course sharing dinner. This is the ultimate way to experience both the wines and Spencer & Co’s hospitality. Seats to our wine dinner are strictly limited. We’re capping it at 8 places so everyone gets a decent glass of each of these great wines and can enjoy the social atmosphere around the table.

December

Lancashire Bombs have landed!

Lancashire Bombs are here, only available during December, and in limited supply. The Lancashire Black Bomb Cheese is the creation of the Shorrock family run dairy, which has operated out of Goosnargh, near Preston in Lancashire since 1923. All Lancashire Bomb Cheese are hand made, matured for a minimum of two years, wrapped in muslin and then dipped into wax, to produce this much talked about great tasting and original cheese product. This cheese is a huge hit not only with the North of England, but due to its originality, its reputation precedes it throughout the South too. And deservedly so, with Andrew Shorrock receiving prestigious prizes in 2006 at the Royal Lancashire Agricultural Show for the cheese. Made with pasteurised cows milk and suitable for vegetarians. Due to the maturation, the Lancashire Bomber has a deeply creamy taste. It is full flavoured, beautifully textured and with a reportedly ‘fierce and powerful Lancashire cheese’.
