What is Park Hyatt Sydney's Nick Caraturo drinking?

Spent an hour with award-winning sommelier, Nick Caraturo, at Sydney’s plush Park Hyatt harbourkitchen&bar trying his latest suite of house wines. Making a selection of crowd-pleasers from “regular” wines is where top sommeliers come into their own. Each wine belied its $20 bottleshop price tag and drank superbly. Here’s Nick’s list:
  • Sauvignon Blanc: Domain A Stoney Vineyard 2007 (TAS)
  • Pinot Noir: Park & Joyce Adelaide Hills 2007 (my favourite, a proper pinot) (SA)
  • Cab/Merlot: Wild Duck Creek, The Blend (VIC)
  • Shiraz: Bowen Estate 2007 (SA – Coonawarra) - Jeremy Oliver gave this one 92 points and who am I to disagree?
Why not slip into a comfy couch on a Friday or Saturday night and soak up the cool jazz and harbour views with a glass of Park & Joyce. Bliss!

The hotel in Sydney. With killer views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge from the rooms, this is the place to be. I especially love the Harbour Kitchen & Bar for its authentic Australian cuisine, equally remarkable wine list and spectacular views. A perfect romantic weekend for all my guests.
