6 The Crescent
In the 1970s and 80s, Australia almost invented ‘varietal’ wine – teaching us what to expect from a Chardonnay or a Shiraz. But the range of grape varieties grown and the huge variety of places where wine is made makes Australia one of the most exciting countries it’s possible to explore. And New Zealand of course has defined a grassy style of Sauvignon Blanc, thanks to Cloudy Bay, and produces some seriously elegant Pinot Noirs, but also has a huge variety of varieties and styles to enjoy.
We will commence the evening with a welcome drink and taste eight wines – at least one of the wines we taste will retail for more than £50/bottle!
