Discover Wines From Australia (ONLINE TASTING)
Enjoy a selection of intense, complex and powerful wines from down under!
Ample sunshine and favoured climatic conditions mean Australia can often produce quality on a regular basis. This consistency delivers assurance to many wine drinkers across the world and has been pivotal in Australia’s rise to international stardom. Their flagship red varietal - big, spicy and powerful Shiraz - offer great value for money whilst their whites, such as Chardonnay, are rich, ripe and rounded.
But are these wines too hot to handle? Too intense and alcoholic or well-balanced? It’s time to investigate!
Australia is home to an amazing array of diverse climates and these are reflected in its many unique and regionally distinct wine regions, from cooler wine regions such as Adelaide Hills and Margaret River, to super hot ones, such as Barossa Valley. Let's dicover each regions and what they are now famous for, in terms of wine styles, grape varieties and award-winning producers.
I would recommend buying in advance: 1 bottle of Shiraz from Barossa Valley (if possible - otherwise, any other region will do) as well as 1 bottle of Chardonnay (any winery will do, but if you could find Grant Burge, that would be great - Waitrose sells Grant Burge Chardonnay at only £6.99 a bottle and St Hallett No.1 Reserve Shiraz from Barossa at only £9.49 since they have a 25% off promotion at the moment - but every supermarket will sell a Chardonnay and a Shiraz from Australia!), and opening those wines LIVE with us on the night.
Let's bring some wine fun to your living-room! ;-)
1 ticket will entitle everyone in your household to attend this tasting (no need to buy a ticket per person!).
