Event Description

A lot of people think of Australian wine as reliable, fruit-driven wines. Whilst that is true the world of Australian wine is far more complex, as is its climate.

There are hot, warm, cool, dry, and wet locations in Australia and they all make totally different wines. There are also a growing number of small boutique wineries where the winemakers concentrate on producing limited quantities of hand-made wines of superb quality these are the wines we will be tasting. 

New Zealand is fast becoming the benchmark for New World Sauvignon Blanc, but there is much more to these two islands than that. The South Island produces some wonderful Pinot Noir & stunning zesty Riesling, whilst the warmer climate of North Island (it's the southern hemisphere so it's the other way round) is home to delicious Cabernet and Merlot with much fuller, softer, riper, white wines.

We will also be decoding the jargon on wine labels during this session!

(Note, this evening is part of our core 8-week course - book all 8 evenings and save £55! And it's flexible, so if you have to skip an evening you can pick it up next time it runs).

This evening is suitable for all levels of wine knowledge! 

The event will include tasting samples of six carefully selected wines, full wine notes & handouts, and a 2-hour interactive presentation, with Q&A, led by our wine tutor.
