Virtual tasting: discover aged white wines

October 17


If you tasted a wine, would you know which flavours came from the environment, weather, winemaking or age? Tasting a “vertical” is a great way to learn just that, and we’ve got the best teacher to show you how.

You’re in for a treat with this virtual event; tasting current vintages of our Yarra Valley Chardonnay and Savagnin, then compare them with the same wines which have been laid down to age.

Think you like chardonnay? Just wait will you taste it with a decade of maturation. Our 2010 has transformed into something truly amazing.

New to savagnin? Not to be confused with sauvignon blanc, this white variety hails from France and has a similar mouthfeel to a textured chardonnay. With a stunning, fresh acidity and complex flavour, this wine ages like a champion and our 2013 is really something special.

You will be led through the tasting by the impressive Master of Wine, Meg Brodtmann. Despite having the world’s highest qualification in wine and decades of winemaking experience, she’s down to earth and a great laugh. She’ll also answer any questions you have about wine – from the basic, to technical, and anything in-between.

In the small-group zoom (no flicking between pages!) you’ll taste and compare the wines, learn a thing or two and have a blast with a great group of people.

Have you tasted our Black Label Pinot Noir? Specifically designed for food pairing, it's a fuller style of pinot, and perfect with medium meats like duck or pork. Yum!

Any Pinot Gris fans? 🙋🙋‍♀️
Our Pinot Gris spends time with skins to develop its signature blush colour. With texture and the fresh flavour of watermelon, we know what we’ll be drinking heading into summer!

No artistic experience necessary!
