And here’s the video:
It lasts around 40 minutes, but you can stop and start it as you wish, and of course watch it over a few days. You can download the tasting sheet here.
For helpful tips on how to manage your tasting, equipment you might need, and how to store unfinished wine, please download our guide to running a tasting at home.
This has been a wonderful opportunity to explore the rich diversity of New World wines and I hope it encourages you to the many different valleys and regions that these fabulous wine producing countries have to offer.
As with previous video tastings this is a family affair. My wife Fliss (still studying for the WSET Diploma) has produced a short booklet with some fun facts about New World wines – download here. And you will be delighted to know that Julia, our daughter, came back from preparing to start her second year at University to produce the video from both behind the camera and in the editing suite.
If you would like to taste the wines in the video do get in touch, I still have some stock. You can order directly from the shop.
Thank you for watching, any feedback is very welcome. And please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like to order any of the wines featured in the tasting.
