This premiere event will be free of charge!
We will be tasting 6 wines in total, 2 whites and 4 reds.
These wines will be supplied by our good friends at the Profile Wine Group and both Ruben Elmer (Key Account Manager, Sommelier) and Allan Leal (Private Client Sales) will be present to talk about these marvelous wines.
These wines have been selected to expose you to a broad range of tastes, styles and terroirs. They have also been chosen with warmer weather, backyard BBQ’s, pools and patio entertaining in mind. You will be thrilled!
You will also be offered an opportunity to order the wines we are tasting for you private enjoyment.

Cantina Produttori Cormons, 2006 Pinot Grigio Isonzo, Friuli Isonzo Doc, Italy
“Clean and accessible, aromas include, lemon, apple and floral notes which come in at good itensity. A mix of citrus and mineral flavours with slightly oily and chalky texture.”

Rowi, 2006 Sauvignon Blanc, Wairau River. Marlborough, New Zealand
“Lifted aromas of passionfruit and gooseberry abound in this vibrant, lively wine, which balances the freshness of melon and lime with rich, ripe tropical fruit on the palate and a lingering finish.”

Casa Vinicola G. Cesari, 2005 Ripasso Valpolicella, Classico, Bosan, Italy
“The predominant cherry bouquet overlaps with pleasant hints of cocoa, tobacco and vanilla. It has an intense purple red colour with strong, soft and velvety body.”

Farnese, 2005 Edizione Cinque Autoctoni, Estate Blend, Italy
“Strong garnet red colour, intense and persistent with aroma of cherries, prunes, ripe black currant, tobacco and a toasted final note. Full-bodied, soft, rich in tannin, very persistent, long at the end with spicy notes of vanilla and chocolate.”

Coriole Vineyards, 2005 Shiraz, McLaren Vale, Australia
“Subtle aromas of dark fruits and spice. The cooler vintage of 2005 is reflected on the palate, with tight acid and fine grained savoury tannins that combine with dark berries and subtle notes of earthy, peppery characters.”

Chateau Teyssier, 2004 St. Emilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux, Frnace
“Bright ruby-red. Black cherry, violet, licorice, menthol and smoke on the nose. Sweet and primary, with blackberry, licorice and mint flavors.”
