Night One - Majella Coonawarra Shiraz 2006 Majella Coonawarra Shiraz 2013 (JH 94) : "Good colour; a fresh and vibrant bouquet and palate both send the same pure message of delicious red berry fruits, spice and a faint hint of licorice, the savoury tannins providing both context and the necessary structure."

9.1 Majella Vintage Cabernet Tasting - Fri 3 July

These packs represent a fascinating insight into the maturation capacity of the Majella Cabernet and Shiraz. We will be doing them slowly over two consecutive nights. We will be lead through the wines by Brian (Prof) Lynn. Night One - Majella Coonawarra Cabernet 2006 (JH 93) " "Bright deep colour; classic medium-bodied cabernet, at once juicy yet firm, with tannins guiding the long finish; earth yet to appear, but it will." (July 2009) Majella Coonawarra Cabernet 2013 (JH 95) : "Bright, deep crimson; there is nothing half-hearted about this wine, rather it is a pure evocation of cool grown cabernet, its texture and structure allowing cassis...

Z.4.Tedeschi Tasting with Sabrina Tedeschi - Thurs 21 May

Tedeschi winery is hacked out of the side of a dusty mountain - 500 meters above sea level in Veneto. Its a two hour journey from Venice itself - but well worth the trouble once you get there. The thing about Tedeschi is their position at the forefront of the "international" style of Amarone production which has manifest itself in recent years. Whether the newer style deserves to be looked at it the same way as the centuries honoured traditional style - is a debate that should be reserved for the most ardent of wine geeks. I feel sure there is room for all, and with hundreds of thousands of bottles made every year to critical acclaim - the...

Z.5 Greystone Tasting with Nik Mavromatis & Dom M - Thurs 28 May

Greystone winery remains the one winery I have ever been able to visit where every single bottle opened was a winner. Its seldom that each and every wine from a single producer manages to stun quite like this one did. The trick of course is consistency - which Greystone again manages to pull off under the expert eyes of a winemaking dream team, headed up by Dom Maxwell, twice gonged Winestate NZ Winemakerof the Year. Greystone`s online media speaks fondly of the seasons that demand so much attention from the staff. From overnight vigils to keep the frost at bay all the way through to harvest where its not unusual to be awake for several days...
