If you think you know Aussie wine, then think again! An Australian Wine Tasting is coming to Dublin on 30th of January 2019 to challenge perceptions and introduce you to the country’s exciting, diverse styles of wine, from classic to contemporary, rogue to the refined.
For the first time since 2016, Wine Australia is hosting a tasting evening, open to all, on Wednesday 30 January in Dublin. Taking place at The Mansion House between 6pm – 8pm, there will be over 250 wines from 40 wineries across Australia.
This is your chance to meet the people behind the wines, hear their stories and try a diverse range of wines. There really is always something new to discover: at the tasting try new styles and alternative grape varieties like Fiano, Tempranillo, Montepulciano, Mencia and Gewurztraminer and explore less familiar regions like Canberra, Pemberton and Grampians.
Some of the wineries at the tasting are renowned names, such as d’Arenberg, McWilliam’s Wines, McGuigan, Yalumba and Wakefield Wines, showcasing new releases and the latest vintages. A number of producers however will be new discoveries, pouring their wines in Ireland for the first time. Some of the producers which may be new to you are:
Showcasing the unique characteristics of both the Hunter Valley and individual vineyards. Don’t miss the Shiraz Pinot Noir blend and find out why this old Hunter tradition is making a comeback.
Crafting traditional and alternative styles from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills, Patritti are pouring cool climate Chardonnay, old vine Grenache, Sparkling Shiraz and fortified Tawny.
Focusing on cool climate styles from the Clare Valley, compare signature varieties Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon with alternative varieties such as Montepulciano and Nero d’Avola.
