GT WINE Magazine Top Tasting – 2017 Hunter Shiraz

Wednesday 3 April @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The theme is 2017 Hunter Valley Shiraz and a cracking line-up. It’s the first time the GTW tasting panel have looked at Hunter Valley shiraz as a single category – odd that’s it’s taken 20 years to do so. 2017 was a fabulous year – read warm, dry and no sub-tropical storms.

GT WINE Magazine Top Tasting in Orange – Italianate Reds

Monday 12 August @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

For the August September issue of GT WINE Magazine, the tasting panel dived into the red version of the Italianate white varieties tasting published in February. We excluded sangiovese and nebbiolo but went hard on the rest. The results were more than interesting as we tackled barbera, dolcetto, primitivo/zinfandel, montepulciano, nero d’Avola et al. It wasn’t a clear win for the Italians or the Aussies, rather a celebration of the savoury, food friendly reds. Don’t miss one, it’ll book out…
