A rare chance to compare the aromatic wines of Alsace in France against those of New Zealand’s up-and-coming wine regions, Marlborough, Martinborough, Hawkes Bay and Central Otago.
Taste 13 white and red wines including Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir with Rose Murray Brown MW as your guide. The wines will be served in pairs with a wine from Alsace and New Zealand matched against each other.
New Zealand is often hailed as the best place in the New World to produce zesty aromatic wine styles, so it will be interesting to see how they compare alongside the home of aromatic wines, Alsace. Visuals will highlight the beautiful vineyards and regions.
A selection of cheeses & biscuits will also be served.
No prior knowledge required to enjoy this – just a love of aromatic wines.
