Food and wine lovers can tick several items off their bucket list this winter as Seppeltsfield arrives at Five Regions Restaurant, bringing its iconic 1922 100 Year Old Para Vintage Tawny with it.
The three-month collaboration between two South Australian icons will see the world-class chefs at Five Regions work with Seppeltsfield Chief Winemaker Fiona Donald to craft a degustation menu that matches the Seppeltsfield luxury collection of wines, including the 1922 100-year-old Para Vintage Tawny.
It makes Five Regions the only place in the world that wine lovers can taste this historic drop by the glass, outside of the Seppeltsfield Estate in the heart of the Barossa. And in doing so, diners will go into the draw to win truly exceptional prize – a Seppeltsfield wine decanter by French crystal house Lalique accompanied by a Magnum of Seppeltsfield The Westing Single Vineyard Barossa Shiraz wine.
“Seppeltsfield is one of Australia’s most historic wineries, established in the Barossa in 1851. We are thrilled to be partnering with Five Regions – a special place where we can showcase our luxury collection of wines and our stories with exceptional food and conversation,” Seppeltsfield Chief Winemaker Fiona Donald said.
“The collaboration allows wine lovers to taste our collection of wines with food designed to bring out the best in each glass, all while overlooking the hallowed turf and soaring grandstands of Adelaide Oval.
“It’s a distinctly South Australian and uniquely Seppeltsfield experience – we can’t wait for guests to try it.”
Oval Hotel Executive Chef Daniel Simpson said diners can expect more than just traditional winter flavours on the Seppeltsfield-inspired menu.
“Our approach is always wine first – we taste, we select, and we listen to the history and ethos behind the winemaking,” he said.
“The Seppeltsfield collection of wines showcases the complexity of the Barossa as a wine region. It may be known for its bigger, more full-bodied reds – but we’re starting with a crisp Vermentino and fresh seafood, travelling through different styles of red and ending on a rich dessert and the beloved 100 Year Old Para Vintage Tawny.
“At every stage of the menu design, we are guided by what will make the wine sing, as well as any hidden stories or personal touches we can bring to the table – keep an eye out for those.”
Five Regions Restaurant is Oval Hotel’s seasonal degustation restaurant, inviting a South Australian winery to collaborate every three months. Each winery’s chosen wines provide inspiration and guidance for menus that prioritise local ingredients and storytelling through food.
The Seppeltsfield menu will be available from July through September inclusive, with Five Regions restaurant open for dinner Tuesday to Saturday.
