White wine lovers are invited to taste the newest releases from Adelaide Hills winemakers at a Spring themed tasting at Burnside Village on Saturday, October 26, from 1:30pm.
Popular varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay will be poured alongside rising stars like Arneis and Fiano, plus a selection of premium sparkling drops.
John Harvey, Chair of Adelaide Hills Wine Region, says the new 2013 releases again reinforce why the region is known as the home of premium white wine. “The Adelaide Hills is still a young wine region compared to many others but people are now appreciating the quality, consistency and character of our white wines,” John says.
“We had an exceptional vintage this year, with warm days and cool nights ripening the fruit beautifully, so it will be very exciting to taste these wines for the first time. This event will feature lots of smaller producers like Lambrook, The Pawn Wine Co. and Scott Winemaking, who are getting rave reviews but who might still be relatively unknown to some casual wine drinkers.
“Alongside these names are plenty of favourites such as Shaw + Smith, Petaluma, Nepenthe and Bird in Hand. “The winemakers will be pouring their own products so it’s a chance for people not just to taste the wines, but also to get to know the characters behind them.”
