Following the interest and success associated with the recent ‘World of Riesling’ lunch, the Wine Committee is pleased to launch an “Exploring” series, featuring wine tastings and lunches that will investigate particular wine grapes and regions.
Friday 22 October, 5.30pm
Hosted by Mr Walker this tasting will explore “The wines of Coal River Valley” a special region of Tasmania which follows the course of the Coal River from the hills just north of Hobart to the coast, taking in the wide, north to south oriented river valley. Members will have the chance to taste a number of wines with matching canapés.
(Wine fact: Vineyards are closer to Hobart than to any other capital city in the country).
Thursday 25 November, 12.30pm
Hosted by Mr Bloemendal this lunch will explore “The wines of Chablis“. This region of Burgundy mostly grows Chardonnay, characterised by purity, sophistication and crispness when young, mellowing well as they age. Chablis vines are classified into four levels of appellation: Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru, and Chablis Grand Cru, with all Grand Cru climats located on the right bank of the River Serein.
