The Hunter Valley has undergone a resurgence over the last decade and Jim Chatto has been at the forefront of revitalising the region. This lunch is to celebrate the incredible changes he has made to one of Australia’s oldest, family-owned wine producers and the incredible viticultural legacy stemming from the McWilliams family. Hunter 2014 red wines were hailed as some of, if not the, greatest wines in Australia last year upon release. Jim has made a full set of the now sold out wine available for this lunch. In honour of Jim’s generous offer we are also opening a bottle of wine acquired by a customer and generously made available for the event: a WJ Seabrook Claret 1948 ( Maurice O’Shea ) Bottled in 1949. For those fortunate enough to have tasted the wines actually made by Maurice O’Shea, they are unquestionably the pinnacle of old Australian wine. We’ve been fortunate enough to taste a few of these old wines and every bottle has been incredible and among the highlight wines of our vinous lives. The Maurice O’Shea 1951 drunk at a staff dinner four years ago haunts us every time we open an old Aussie red.
