From otago to waipara and on to the world
For many, a crisp Pinot Noir best characterizes the spirit of New Zealand and its people. And they wouldn’t be wrong. But while it is the most eloquent varietal, regional diversity is alive and well in the spectacular vineyards of Central Otago, Martinborough, Waipara Valley and Marlborough.
One of the best guides to steer your ambrosial journey of discovery, is New Zealand’s first and only Master Sommelier, Cameron Douglas. A deeply passionate but instantly approachable writer, educator and speaker, Douglas regularly spends his time in every wine region in the country.
For one night only on 1 June, the professional sommelier will be introducing five of his top recommendations at Hilton Kuala Lumpur’s modern European brasserie, Graze. This four-course banquet beginning with an amuse-bouche, is designed to offer a delicious context for each bottle. Much like Douglas has done for New York-based restaurant, The Musket Room, which received its Michelin star only four months after opening.
