NZ Sauvignon & Chianti
In this exciting evening's tasting we explore two famous styles of wine, the current ultra-fashionable New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and an old favourite from Italy - Chianti.
New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc has taken the UK by storm to become the most popular white wine on the market. However there are dozens of brands all at different price points. Some are from well known and establibshed suppliers such as Villa Maria™ and then there is the iconic Cloudy Bay™. At the other end of the market, wine is available for as little as £5.99.
Is there much difference between these wines?
YES there is!
If you love NZ Sauvignon this is your chance to compare inexpensive supermarket wine with two more expensive examples, including Cloudy Bay™ the ultimate expression of this style of wine.
Chianti suffered from something of a reputation problem in the 1970s with the inexpensive wicker basket Italian restaurant examples obscuring one of the finest red wines in the world.
Now things have been cleared up and there is a clear hierachy from simple Chianti DOCG, through the much more serious Chianti Classico DOCG to the pinnacle of Chianto Classico Riserva DOCG.
We will taste examples of all three, wonderful expressions of Italy's Sangiovese grape from Tuscany.
Professional ISO tasting glasses, all course materials including tasting sheets & water are provided along with some nibbles to help the wine along.
