Get to Know, and Love, Riesling with Brendan Jansen MW

13 March 2024

About This Event

Riesling competes with Chardonnay as the world’s greatest white grape. Arguably more than Chardonnay, Riesling manages to capture the essence of where it is grown – a bit like Pinot Noir does for red grapes.

Join Brendan Jansen MW on International Riesling Day to taste eight Rieslings in two flights of four. We will focus on the centre of the Riesling universe – Germany – (spoiler alert, there will be no sweet wines), and, unashamedly, the new centre of the Australian Riesling universe – WA. Expect aged and young wines, and examples from Alsace.

Here is an example of what we might be tasting pending availability -

Galafrey Reserve Riesling 2022 – Mount Barker, Western Australia
Frankland Estate ‘Alter Weg’ 2022 [Riesling] - Frankland River, Western Australia
