Wines Around the World: Australia
June 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$25
As our Wines Around the World series continues, we travel to the country of Australia. The Australian wine community today is founded on the explorers of the past, who identified the optimal vineyard sites and the sophisticated winemaking techniques that make Australian fine wines so special. Australian winemaking and grape growing is constantly evolving. The winemakers and viticulturists are curious, willing to experiment and to challenge convention to ensure that they craft authentic wines that are a true expression of Australia.
Come to Virgola for an entertaining, interactive wine tasting to try three Australian wines from the wine-producing regions of the Victoria Alps, Borossa, & South-Eastern Australia. Tuesday, June 4th from 7pm – 9pm we will feature the Wines Around the World Australian wine tasting & food pairing with one white & two red wines. Learn about some new wines, enjoy a food pairing, while you learn what foods will pair with these and other wines. You don’t want to miss this, tickets will go fast!
The wine tasting on Tuesday, June 4th will feature the following three Australian wines:
Frisk Prickly Riesling
This zippy Riesling is slightly sweet, floral and weighted, with notes of lime sorbet, rose petals and a hint of fennel.
Region: Victorian Alps
Peter Lehmann Portrait Cabernet Sauvignon
The color is deep red with a dense black center, and the nose gives aromas of chocolate, blackcurrants, with hints of nutmeg, cloves and star anise. It is a beautifully rich Cabernet with a superb depth of seamless fruit.
Rosemount Diamond Shiraz
This Shiraz is full-bodied, well-defined and juicy-sweet with blackberry, plum and cherry flavors complemented by the subtle richness of oak.
Region: South-Eastern Australia
