Australia & New Zealand
Australia - Home to varied and very different wine-making regions. From the hot Barossa Valley which produces rich, chocolatey and peppery Shiraz, to the cooler Margaret River which produces elegant Cabernets and Sauvignon Blancs. Clare/Eden Valley famous for its deliciously crisp dry Rieslings to the honeyed Semillons from Victoria and Hunter valley. Regionality is the new buzzword in Australian wine - and in this tasting we show you why - great wines from the very best locations in Oz.
New Zealand has reset the benchmark for Sauvignon Blanc, and now in many peoples opinion has wines that rival (even better?) than that of the French. We will taste some of the best Sauvignon Blanc wines that New Zealand produce, including the Sauvignon that started it all. The Iconic Cloudy Bay!. Pinot Noir is another wine that New Zealand excel at, with Central Otago and Martinborough leading the way... come & taste...
Ripe rich and elegant wines with some food on the side.
