TASTING & EVENTS

2014 BORDEAUX BLANC - NEW ARRIVALS | AUCKLAND

The 2014 Bordeaux vintage has finally arrived, while variable it's still the best since 2009/2010. This year we thought we would start by taking a look at the fabulous dry white wines of the region. This is the 10th successful vintage in a row for these unheralded and underrated beauties. Produced from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillion with their subtle scent of beeswax and lanolin, and ability to age for decades, a style almost polar opposite from their fruity new world cousins. We will be trying some of the very best of the vintage in tonight's lineup, including the rare dry wine of Chateau d'Yquem, and the very first public release of Chateau Palmer Blanc (previously only for the owners and guests of the Chateau).

THE GLENGARRY WINE ACADEMY | STAGE 2 - FOUR WEEK COURSE

Over the last thirty years, the Glengarry Wine Academy has established itself as one of the leading wine educators in New Zealand. Initially created to train Glengarry staff, it is also widely used by the hospitality industry and wine enthusiasts. Informative, but never intimidating, the Glengarry Wine Academy courses are an opportunity for beginners as well as experienced aficionados to expand their knowledge and develop their interest. This four week course is the second in the series and follows from Wine Academy Stage I.
Stage Two will look closely at grape varieties and their interpretations from around the world with a major focus on tastings. All wines are premium to super premium in nature.
It is recommended that participants have completed Wine Academy Stage I (or similar course) before embarking on Wine Academy Stage II.

This particular Wine Academy is a little different as we are in fact training the trainers with this one. It’ll be presented by our General Manager Liz Wheadon, so not only will you receive all the training you can expect at a Wine Academy, you’ll have four nights of stories, great wine and a fair amount of good humour from Liz.

CHURCH ROAD TOM - 2014 RELEASE WITH CHRIS SCOTT

TOM is one of New Zealand's most iconic (and expensive) wines, produced only in the greatest years. Named in honour of the legendary winemaker Tom McDonald, the original Cabernet Merlot blend was joined by the TOM Chardonnay in 2006, and the stunning TOM Syrah in 2013. That vintage was hailed as once in a lifetime but 2014 was arguably even better, these twin years being the greatest ever produced in the Hawkes Bay. Tonight we will have senior winemaker Chris Scott here (NZ Wine Estate winemaker of the year 2016) to present the three 2014 TOM wines to us. We will also be trying the same three varietals from the excellent Grand Reserve range. Don't miss this rare chance to try these together.
