Wine Club Members’ Unique Tasting Experience
If you are part of Andrew Murray’s wine club, you’ll have access to a member’s lounge located just off the public tasting area, through a set of glass doors. Members sit in a large private area with comfortable leather chairs, and a view of the vineyards wine barrels. Enjoy the latest highly acclaimed releases, and any special offerings, in an exclusive and relaxing environment.
For Chocolate Lovers
As you enter the tasting room you’ll see a large LED screen advertising the current wine flights available. One of the special flights being offered at Andrew Murray includes a truffle and wine pairing. Truffles from Jessica Foster Confections are paired with wines from the Rhone Zone Flight. The chocolates have tantalizing flavors like curry and cinnamon apple. Don’t worry, however, if you’ve tried one truffle and wine pairing, there will always be a new one to try. Every time the wines in the tasting room change, a new set of truffles are chosen to go with them.
The current chocolate flight in the tasting room includes truffles paired with:
2017 Grenache Blanc described as a highly aromatic wine with the flavors of green apple, ripe pear and white flowers.
2016 Esperance, signature Estate-grown Rhone blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre and 15% Syrah. It is a fan and critic favorite each and every vintage.
2016 Syrah Estate, clone 383 and 471 which yield a lovely cool-climate Syrah flavor profile that pairs so well with Dark Chocolate Pomegranate truffle.
