Good Afternoon Bridgees,
For tomorrow night’s FREE Friday night tasting, we will be comparing ‘New World’ VS ‘Old World’ wine regions.
These two terms are generally used to describe the differences in viticulture and winemaking philosophies between the Old World wine regions of Spain, France and Italy where tradition and the role of terroir play a major role in the wines flavour profile. This is in contrast to the New World wine making of Australia and New Zealand, for example, where science and the role of the winemaker are more often emphasized.
We will be concentrating on three different grape varieties, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo, and taking you threw 2 totally different expressions of each.
Open will be…
Terre a Terre Sauvignon Blanc 2013 from Wrattonbully, Australia
Langlois Chateau De Fontaine Sancerre 2012 from the Loire in France
Chanson Le Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2012 from Burgundy in France
Tapanappa Froggy Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013 from the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia
Arrivo Nebbiolo 2008 from the Adelaide Hills in SA, Australia
Ceretto Nebbiolo 2011 from Piedmont, Italy.
As always, the wines will be open from 4.00pm until 7.00pm this Friday the 14th of August 2015 here at your family owned independent wine store, Old Bridge Cellars in North Fremantle.
