Explore Australian Shiraz ($100) Thurs 21st June

This event is a look at Australia's most iconic and surely our greatest grape, Shiraz.

Can you pick the difference between Barossa and McLaren Vale? Will you prefer the cool climate wines from Canberra or the historic Hunter Valley? Can WA and Victoria match the traditional SA powerhouses? What trends can be seen within the market? What food is best served with what wines and why?

All of these questions and more will be answered as we showcase some of Australia's most renowned winemakers and wines as well as some of the emerging superstars. 

Minimum 12 wines will be served along with delicious parcels of food designed to complement the wines.
