Happy Christmas from Aravina Estate

From everyone here at Aravina Estate we would love to wish you a Merry Christmas and a safe, joyful and relaxing festive season. It is a time for enjoying the company of loved ones, family and friends and sharing the seasons merriment and cheer.

It has been a very busy year and December seems to have crept up at a very fast pace! Aravina Estate is open every day in the lead up to Christmas, along with our fantastic Pop-Up space under the restaurant that looks out over our beautiful gardens. We have a wide range of Christmas hampers, homewares, food and wine accessories, books and many more ideas perfect for last minute Christmas gifts for those stocking fillers.

Visit today and tick one thing off the list - afraid we won't be able to help with the Christmas turkey though!

Opening hours: 10-5pm Monday to Friday (Closed Christmas Day and Boxing Day)

 

Aravina's New Summer Menu by Executive Chef Ben Day

 

Aravina Estate’s new menu is a celebration of the season with lighter, healthier dishes that reflect the essence of Summer. The influence of the warmer weather and the dry Australian heat can be seen in the techniques and flavour profiles in dishes such as barbequed kingfish, smoked mussels and charred asparagus.

The relationship between weather, food and wine is inseparable. “When Summer is on the horizon it’s all about what we can cook as the season changes, and what the wines will taste like with the fresh intake of produce”. Ben has worked closely with Aravina’s Chief Winemaker Ryan Aggiss to create dishes that showcase and work perfectly with the different varietals that the estate’s 30 year old vines produce from the outstanding terroir.

To get the appetite going here is a sneak preview of the delights on offer. See above for barbequed kingfish with teriaki glaze and a miso yuzu sauce matched perfectly with our Vermentino. To the left are starters to whet your palate before mains of Berkshire pork cutlet with vadouvan spiced apple and below is the caramelised pumpkin with parmesan curd, charred asparagus and pear salad.

Aravina's Recent Wine Successes

 

Aravina Estate has had some exciting recent news in the world of wine.

Aravina Estate's Wildwood Ridge Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 picked up the honour of Highly Recommended in the international fine wine magazine, Decanter in their January 2017 edition.

Additionally it was rated 95 points in the James Halliday Australian Wine Companion.

"The beautiful flavours of Margaret River cabernet. They set sail here. Blackcurrant, gravel, bay leaves and dark chocolate. It's medium to full-bodied but the kicker in the finish, which extends deliciously but firmly on. A grand future awaits. A serious quality contender."

Also highly rated in Halliday with 94 points was Aravina Estate's Margaret River Shiraz 2014

"Both slippery smooth and peppery with black cherry,
asphalt and clove notes combining to put on quite a
show. Creamy oak adds velvet to the parade of
savoury flavours. Tannin is beautifully massaged and
the length is excellent. Much to recommend it."

Ray Jordan's Western Australian Wine Guide 2017 had great accolades for Aravina as well. The Wildwood Ridge Reserve Chardonnay 2014 took home 95 points, Wildwood Ridge Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 gained 92 points, Single Vineyard Block 4 Chenin Blanc was well received with 94 points and our juicy 'A Collection' Shiraz Tempranillo came in with a solid 90 points.
