New Zealand Wine Tasting – Friday 5th June 2009
More From: Curious Wines
Posted May 21st, 2009 by Michael Kane
The Kiwis have a way with wine, that’s for sure. From fresh, grassy, near-tropical Sauvignon Blancs to Pinot Noir packed with fruit, this little island nation of All Blacks fame is a wine-making powerhouse. We’re delighted to welcome back Joyce Austin of New Zealand Boutique Wines, all the way from Auckland, to host a seated tasting of New Zealand’s most exciting new wines.
There’s an intriguing theme at this tasting. We’re showing the wines blind and grouping them in pairs: 2 Sauvignon Blancs, 2 Pinot Gris, 2 Rieslings, 2 Pinot Noirs, plus a few surprises. One wine will be modestly priced, the other more expensive. Which wine will be the most impressive? Prepare for lots of fun with the results sure to raise a few eyebrows.
Our last tasting with Joyce was a sell out. Don’t miss it – she’s travelling straight from picking the berries in the 2009 harvest and is brimming with stories. Join us for what promises to be a wonderful night.
Places are limited to 40 people, on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are €15.00.
