GT WINE Magazine Top Tasting in Orange – Italian Whites

Monday 11 February @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Italian white grapes are very new to Australian winegrowers but they’re playing an increasingly significant role – especially when you consider the evolution of our environment. Why? Because fiano and vermentino come from warm regions- Campania and Sardinia respectively.  This was a terrific tasting. Not only did the Australian emigres look good but a number of skin contact styles made the cut. This will be an exciting tasting. Don’t miss out….

Riesling Renaissance

Wednesday 27 February @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Riesling is one of the world’s noble grapes with purity, precision (it does come from Germany, after all) and incredible longevity. Riesling can be dry or sweet, drunk young or old with equal pleasure. Riesling arrived in Australia 150 years ago and has settled into the Eden and Clare Valleys in South Australia with marvellous rieslings from the Great Southern of Western Australia, the Canberra District and Orange. We’ll explore these regions alongside benchmarks from Germany, Alsace and Austria.

Our first Lolli REDINI night for 2019 will explore the magic of Mornington Peninsula.

I’m just back from the biennial Pinot Noir Celebration and have lots to tell.
