A Virtual Night of Red Wines (ONLINE TASTING)
Tonight, we will be concentrating on ripe, rich, soft and spicy reds which are packed full of juicy fruit flavours. Come along to taste my two new favourite grape varieties when it comes to bold, full-bodied red wines: Durif (also known as Petite Sirah in the Americas) and Nero d'Avola.
Let's also discuss other fabulously intense red wines from around the World, such as beautifully chocolatey Argentinian Malbec, in-your-face Zinfandel, robust Chianti Classico, versatile Bordeaux blend and peppery Australian Shiraz amongst others. We will also be looking at how to bring the best out of your red wines with a short, practical guide on what foods will compliment these full-bodied wines. A great course for anyone who wants a simple, enjoyable introductory look at these lovely heart warmers.
THIS IS YOUR IDEAL WINTER WINE TASTING! And you will LOVE it if:
- You go for the intense flavours of dark chocolate, red meat and black coffee
- You enjoy a juicy, charred steak
