Cabernet Sauvignon - Online
Bordeaux vs New World
A new era is dawning for everyone involved in classrooms and events. Using modern technology, we can enjoy learning about our favourite wines (and gin) from the comfort and safety of our own homes. This has the added advantage that nobody needs to be the “designated driver”. Using Zoom video conferencing is just like being in the room with Gary, who will, as ever educate, inform and entertain you for about an hour.
All sessions will be recorded and if you can't attend at the last minute just let us know so you can go through the event at your convenience later.
Why not invite your friends to make it a truly social experience?
Tonight, we continue where we left off from Facebook sessions in our comparison of French and New World wines.
This session is all about Cabernet Sauvignon, the black grape behind some of the most famous red wines from Bordeaux in France, but also a hugely popular variety around the world. So much so that it is the most planted of all black grape varieties.
Join us we compare and contrast a New World example and a Bordeaux from the Medoc. The two styles are quite different and reflect both the difference in “terroir” and also the different winemaking approach selected by the winemakers.
All YOU have to do is purchase a ticket from the Shropshire Wine School website by clicking the "BOOK" button below, as you would normally. A ticket entitles ALL members of your household to join in. There is no need to buy one ticket per person. Once your ticket purchased, you will receive a confirmation email with your ZOOM web link and password 2 days before the event itself.
Then pop out and buy two wines to compare. For the Bordeaux, look for the words “Médoc” or “Haut- Médoc” on the label, I will be opening a Chateau Cissac from the Haut-Medoc which is available in Tanner’s and several other merchants. For the new world wine, there are many to pick from and each would be interesting to discuss on the night. Perhaps a Coonawarra or Margaret River in Australia, or Stellenbosch in South Africa? Argentina and especially Chile make some great Cabernet Sauvignon’s, not forgetting the premium wines from Napa Valley in California. I will be opening a Vasse Felix Filius from the Margaret River available from Majestic Wines or Waitrose.
