World of Wine Explore Australia and New Zealand
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!
