East End Cellars Masterclass: International Chardonnay Tasting
11.00am - 12.30pm
Chardonnay is where the world of white wine is at its most exciting and competitive. This masterclass features 12 wines on tasting from the Adelaide Hills, wider Australia, New Zealand and France — all selected on the basis of highest quality, typicity, reputation and global relevance.
The cut and thrust of chardonnay styles across these nations, producers and vintages is set to deliver a fascinating experience. Leading the masterclass will be festival drinks curator and wine critic Nick Stock. Joining him is the lauded Rick Kinzbrunner of Victoria’s Giaconda vineyard, plus New Zealand star Michael Brajkovich of Kumeu River Wines.
The tasting will be presented blind; you’ll know the wines, but not the order in which they will be served.
Can you pick the grand cru Burgundy among the best from around Australia, including leading names from the Adelaide Hills? How will they stack up against the best of the best? Only one way to find out!
