A few thoughts on the course by previous attendees;
‘Excellent value and a just-right mix of learning and fun.’
‘At the Shiraz challenge we had a great time exploring the different regions. The host was a world of knowledge, great fun.’
Held one Friday per month throughout the year, there’s a date to suit everyone. This has to be one of Melbourne’s best wine nights!
To say the least, expect an unmatched Shiraz feast!
The Shiraz Challenge is an ideal format for corporate events too!
Brilliant! If you haven't been; you must. If you have attended before; go again - always a great night with a wonderful and ever changing selection of Shiraz.
At the Shiraz challenge we had a great time exploring the different regions. The host was a world of knowledge, great fun.
We obtained a good insight as to how shiraz wines from different climatic regions in Australia vary in colour, nose, taste and finish. We also learnt of the various nose and palate descriptors used to describe shiraz. It was all done as a blind tasting and we had to assess, or should I say, guess, which wine was what with Phil's expert guidance and enthusiastic style. An excellent introduction into the wide world of Australian shiraz.
