For one day only on 28 September, Maison Mumm will bring a taste of Central Otago to Sydney, unveiling the Mumm Matakauri Lodge at The Boathouse Rose Bay. Positioned right on Sydney Harbour and chosen for its incredible view reminiscent of Matakauri’s outlook over Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown, Sydneysiders will get a first taste of the new Mumm Central Otago Blanc de Noirs, alongside an NZ tasting flight at a one-off, exclusive lunch.
Matakauri Lodge Head Chef, Jonathan Rogers, will showcase some favourite signature dishes inspired by his hometown of Queenstown and the nearby Central Otago wine region, with a four-course curated menu paired with Mumm Central Otago Blanc de Noirs, Mumm Marlborough Brut Prestige and Mumm Marlborough Brut Rosé. Guests can expect a journey to Central Otago for the day, with a selection of delicacies you would find on the Matakauri menu including cured kingfish, Ora King Salmon, Rock Oysters and berry-driven dessert.
One of the trio of Robertson Lodges in NZ, Matakauri Lodge is spectacularly situated on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown. The Lodge offers stunning views from every angle including the 12 luxurious suites and rooms, as well as the dining rooms, that serve a take on modern New Zealand food using mainly produce from the surrounding mountains, lakes and valleys.
Innovative Champagne house G.H. Mumm has looked to Central Otago for the first time, its second New Zealand region in the collection, following the inaugural release of Mumm Marlborough in 2020. It is the first time a Champagne house has made a sparkling wine from the region and the Mumm Matakauri Lodge will be the first place to taste the latest in the collection, Mumm Central Otago Blanc de Noirs which will launch in Australia on October 15.
Made from hand-harvested Pinot Noir grapes, Mumm Central Otago Blanc de Noirs epitomises the sophisticated style of elegant and finessed Pinot Noir for which the region is renowned.
The Mumm Terroirs collection celebrates prestigious wine regions known for producing exceptional pinot noir, building on G.H. Mumm’s 200-year history of crafting pinot noir-forward wines.
You can book for this one-off occasion here for $120.00pp for one day only. Limited spaces available.
