Rare Investment Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting... with Michelin inspired Cuisine
If you ever harboured a desire to own a RARE and outstanding RED as a fun wine INVESTMENT... Taylor’s LEGACY Cabernet is that wine! I have personally enjoyed significant success with wine investment over 40-years and understand what’s core to making a good selection... I have already got our Legacy in my cellar.
I was privileged to attend the 50-person Black Tie release dinner for Legacy hosted by the Taylor family at the Australian Art Gallery in Sydney. So confident were they in the quality of the wine they showcased it alongside a 2014 (same vintage) Chateau Lafite Rothschild... one of Bordeaux’s legendary five only 1st Growth Cabernets and its most expensive at close to NZ$2,000/bottle! The comparative tasting was a masterstroke... personally I thought Legacy was a clear winner... so did revered critic Huon Hooke awarding it an appropriate 98/100
Taylor’s have committed to repeating that tasting exclusively in NZ for 40 only FWD Co. customers... and Justin Taylor will fly in to personally host the evening. Guests will also try a mini vertical of the legendary Taylors St. Andrews Cabernet and other prestige wines. You can make your own judgement when LEGACY is poured alongside Chateau Lafite Rothschild accompanied by a signature dish prepared by Michelin Chef Phillip Reynolds.
This will be NZ’s only tasting and FWD Co. were given NZ’s complete allocation of 36-bottles. Not only is Legacy a Cabernet of extraordinary quality with the potential to live for decades when stored properly... it’s quality of packaging and state of the art anti-fraud security protection are both world leading.
At $140 the tasting is heavily subsidised by Taylor’s and will be a revelation... Justin will also share the 50-year history of this great Australian winemaking family and their personal Legacy with us. 12 tickets have already been presold... order quickly to attend one of the greatest prestige wine tastings in recent years!
