World of Wine: Chile & Argentina
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Wine tasting on Chile & Argentina, focusing on affordable and high quality wines - great wines to discover leading up to Xmas.
Part One – Chile
What makes Chile such an attractive ‘safe bet’ for a consumer? We’ll look at the facts, looking at the climate through to the diverse country that is Chile. White grape varieties such as the crisp Sauvignon Blanc, balanced Chardonnay and soft and smooth reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and the newly-famed Carmenere rule the roost. Anywhere that hosts a ‘Casablanca’ must be good news, ‘here’s looking at you kid!’
Part Two – Argentina
Although production (6th in the world) has been dropping, quality is rising. With a focus on the famed wine region Mendoza, Malbec has carved a reputation of high quality often notably higher than its’ French origins. But it doesn’t stop there; there’s plenty of Viognier, Torrontes and Shiraz to discover too, all the more for us to taste our way through.
All tastings include; minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, tasting sheet, use of professional tastings glasses and nibbles
