Rare chance to taste Australia’s best of the best

April 29, 2017 Beverage, Headline News No Comments Email Email

A $950-a-head vertical tasting of Australia’s most famous wine Penfolds Grange spanning six decades will headline a series of wine masterclasses to be held in Adelaide next week.

The Tasting Australia festival has ramped up its beverage focus in 2017 with daily masterclasses run by East End Cellars in the event’s Town Square.

The sessions, which start at $40, also include vertical tastings of a decade of Rockford Basket Press and six vintages of Penfolds St Henri Shiraz across five decades.

Other masterclasses include Australian Pinot Noir, Seriously Sparkling and the King and Queen of Riesling, where leading German white winemaker Egon Müller and the Clare Valley’s Kerri Thompson will lead an in-depth tasting of Rieslings from Australia and overseas.

Wine industry characters, pictured below, Robert Hill-Smith (Yalumba), Stephen Pannell (S.C Pannell) and Chester Osborn (d’Arenberg) will debate the virtues of Grenache from the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale regions alongside wine writers Nick Ryan and Nick Stock.
