AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND: CLASS 2 TASTING
Aussie Reds: Shiraz and its Blends
Taste a range of red wines from Australia. Compare Shiraz from two different growing regions and a pair of important Shiraz blends. Pay special attention to the differences in flavor and structure and also pair the wines with regional foods.
Two wines should be Shiraz; one from McLaren Vale and the other from Coonawarra. The other two wines should be red blends from South Australia; one based mainly on Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz and the other on a Shiraz-Grenache-Mourvedre blend.
Wine Spectator is hiring an assistant tasting coordinator at its Napa, Calif., office. Get more details.
