Wine Tasting Weekend at RJM's Wine Bar
RJM’s Wine Bar Ballarat is holding their final wine tasting for this year. It is a relaxed and informal setting where you can sample five (60 ml glasses) of the twelve outstanding quality wines on offer, or four wines plus one of the three (50 ml) fortifieds.
Their wines are all from local wineries and provide a wide range of tastes and style. These include Bests’ 2015 Sparkling Shiraz and their excellent 2016 Shiraz Viognier, which has won numerous awards and rated 95 points by James Halliday in 2019. They also have Downing Estates’ 2012 Shiraz to taste, which is only available at RJM’s. In contrasting style, they have Birthday Villa’s 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine made in the lighter ‘Bordeaux style.’ Also, Riesling, Captains Creek Rose, and Pinot Gris from their most local winemaker, Jean Paul (Ballarat). All this, whilst enjoying one of their signature cheese platters, detailed below.
Enjoy a cheese platter to share - four pieces of local cheese; a Brie or Camembert style, a semi-hard cheese such as Miner's Delight (Goldfields), a Cheddar and either a blue vein or a maple toffee cheddar. Cheeses are accompanied by a selection of olives, seasonal or dried fruits, walnuts and crackers, and Springmount’s fruit pastes and unique black garlic.
Numbers will be limited to 20 people per sitting, therefore please book to avoid disappointment.
