Event Description

Following the success of our last Old World v New World Challenge our follow up course will ask the question, where do the best blends come from? The classic regions of France or the New World, represented by Australia and South Africa?

In this 4 week course we explore stylistic differences between wines from France and wines from the New World. Each week we take a traditional blend and taste two wines made from that blend but in different parts of the world.

The Line-up:

Bordeaux Blend White (Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon)

1.   Château George 7 Blanc, Fronsac  2021 £20.95  and

2.    Bizoe ‘Henriëtta’ Rikus Neethling, Franschhoek 2018 £24.50

Bordeaux Blend Red (Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot)
