The beautiful and knowledgeable Denise McCann, founder/director of boutique wine consultancy Women of Wine based in the Yarra Valley dropped in on the Friday of the F1 weekend to guide us on an Australian Wine Tour. (Denise loves F1 almost as much as she loves wine, so she got to combine her 2 passions in one weekend). Denise created Women of Wine to lift the profile of women in the Wine Industry – gotta love that!
During our vinous exploration, it was a real eye-opener to compare the same grape variety from different wine regions. For example we tasted the Schwarz Dustkicker Shiraz – a full bodied Barossa fruit bomb and compared it with a medium bodied Shiraz from the Geographe region produced by Yilgarnia. What a revelation and amazing that these 2 wines are the same grape variety from the same country but such different styles.
Australia has such variety of ‘Terroir’ – and we love to celebrate and share this diversity with the Singapore wine loving community. Thanks Denise and all of our guests who joined the Merchants Wine Tour.
