NEW ARRIVALS / A MASTERCLASS
Checking in on a few varieties that have entrenched themselves into modern Australian wine since the turn of the 21st Century and discussing the potential of a brand new suite of grapes specially selected for contemporary viticultural and market conditions.
During the masterclass nine different varieties will be tasted. The Australian wines have been made by Chalmers in their new in-house winery from estate grown fruit from their two Victorian vineyards. On show will be a small selection of established Chalmers stalwarts alongside an exciting array of fresh new flavours. The newest wines are all from the Chalmers Project 2018 vintage including five varieties never before grown or made in Australia.
/ FALANGHINA / PECORINO / PIEDIROSSO / INZOLIA / VERDICCHIO / GRECHETTO / RIBOLLA GIALLA / PIGATO / TEROLDEGO / NERO DI TROIA
Ed Merrison from CellarHand will steer a panel including Kim Chalmers, winemaker Bart van Olphen and wine importer Matt Paul from Trembath & Taylor who will add context to the discussion with Italian examples of many of the wines on show.
