One of New Zealand's most highly regarded wine producers is teaming up with The Ritz-Carlton, Bali Resort & Spa in a remarkable event at its signature Dava Restaurant featuring Gravitas Wines of Great Stature in combination with a five-course degustation dinner created by Dava's Chef de Cuisine, Dean Keddell, from Monday, October 9 to Sunday, October 15, 2006.

With four purposefully chosen Gravitas fine wines paired to the special menu created by Chef Dean, guests will be privileged to sample award-winning flavors in a world class combination of dual excellence. Alternatively, guests may choose from Dava's sumptuous a-la-carte menu throughout the week which, as a matter of course, also offers wine pairing notes and suggestions.

"We continue to have world class wines available exclusively for our Dava guests. These stunning wines come from the 'wine capital' of New Zealand's Marlborough region and will, together with the sumptuous flavors of Dava, make for an incredibly impressive week-long gourmet event," said Troy Clarry, the Resort's Executive Assistant Manager for Food & Beverage.

During the week-long engagement, wine-maker Martyn Nicholls will be dazzling guests with his stunning wines from New Zealand’s Marlborough region via complimentary tastings on October 13 & 14, 2006.

Gravitas Wines have won over 80 medals and major accolades in the past three years alone. Their featured 2005 Pinot Noir included during the Bali week was judged as the Southern Hemisphere's top Pinot Noir, while the Sauvignon Blanc won seven Gold medals in various international wine shows, including France's leading wine competition, Citadelles. Similarly, it was one of only 3 Gold Medal winners in the world's largest wine competition - The London International Wine & Spirits Challenge, and rated as one of the World's Top 100 Wines of any style, by the 2005 Wine Report.

Fine New Zealand wines magnificently paired to a special five-course dinner the menu begins with amuse bouche followed by Borneo crab, avocado, crème fraîche, caviar, sweet corn sorbet - served with a 2005 gravitas unoaked Chardonnay. A red-cooked quail with hand-cut noodles, hot foie gras, spiced pear chutney forms the perfect companion for a 2005 gravitas Pinot Noir, whilst the coconut grilled ocean trout, rice cake, hot and spicy peanut salad is impeccable in collaboration with the seven-time gold medal winner, - 2005 Gravitas Sauvignon Blanc. The 2005 Gravitas Llate Harvest Riesling gives a refreshing finish befitting the planned desert of granny smith apples won-tons, vanilla sabayon, palm sugar apple syrup, sorbet and apple chips.

The Gravitas/Dava Degustation menu is priced at Rp. 650,000 ++ (approximately US$85.49) per person – available only for dinner between October 9-15. Dava's a-la-carte menu is also available with Gravitas wines by the glass at special prices.

Dava's special guest, Martyn Nicholls, the owner of Gravitas Winery will give an introduction to the vineyard and wines with complimentary tastings from the range on October 13 & 14, 2006.
