4th June - Vertical Tasting: Chardonnay

Chardonnay is thought to have originated in France’s Burgundy region and is now one of the world’s most planted white grape varieties. Chardonnay arrived in Australia as part of the James Busby collection in 1832, and the Mudgee region of NSW has strong claims to have direct lineage to these original cuttings. However, it wasn’t until the 1970s that Chardonnay came into vogue in Australia when tastes evolved from heavy reds and it was the Hunter that led the way. Tyrrell’s 1971 Vat 47 Chardonnay started Australia’s love affair with the variety and Chardonnay sales boomed in the 80s and 90s. Demand was so high, that it gave birth to many blends of Semillon Chardonnay, with the minimum amount of the latter variety included, so it could appear on the label. Chardonnay is now grown in every wine region in Australia, but it’s the cooler regions that tend to produce finer, elegant Chardonnays that are complex, balanced and longer lasting.  Sample the Sommelier's selection of Chardonnays at this vertical tasting.

11th June - Vertical Tasting: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir has been grown in France’s Burgundy region for centuries. Burgundy is home to some of the world’s most expensive agricultural land, and some of the world’s most costly wines made from Pinot Noir are grown here. It’s possible that a clone of Pinot Noir made its way to Australia with the First Fleet in 1788, and it was definitely part of the collection of vines that James Busby established in the Hunter Valley in the early 1800s. Pinot Noir should be ethereal and hint at its origins or the soil it came from. Tannins are typically fine and soft, expanding at the back of the palate. The best examples age well and often take some years to realise their true character. When tasting Pinot Noir it’s worth bearing in mind that it’s not a big wine, but that it is all about delicacy and length, harmony and finesse. Pinot Noir is also one of the classic Champagne grapes, and is prized around the world for the production of sparkling wine. Sample the Sommelier's selection of Pinot Noir wines at this vertical tasting.

18th June - Vertical Tasting: Riesling

Riesling is a variety with several variations of spelling, so its exact origin is hard to pinpoint. Its spiritual home is Germany, but Alsace and Austria have produced Rieslings of distinction for centuries. Riesling is said to express its origin, or vineyard better than any other grape variety. William Macarthur planted Australia’s first Riesling at Camden Park near Penrith in 1838. Riesling then spread throughout Australia and was embraced by the German settlers in  South Australia. The Clare and Eden Valleys have consistently produced superb, age-worthy Rieslings over a long period of time and are widely regarded as Australia’s benchmark regions for the variety. Some superb Riesling is also produced in pockets of Victoria, Western Australia and Tasmania which are worth seeking out. Sample the Sommelier's selection of Rieslings at this vertical tasting.
