    Tasting - South American Wine & Food

    7:45 - 9:45 pm

    https://specsonline.com/events/discover-the-wines-of-south-america/Venue: Johnsonville Community Centre Hall, 30 Moorefield Rd, Johnsonville, Wellington 6037 - Directions 
    Entry fee: Members $18 Guests $20
    Presenter: Cenna Lloyd - Negociants

    As Wayne advised last month, our November tastings over the last three years, have been a bit different with an emphasis on a foreign country and wine and food matches. November this year will be no different although this year it is a region, rather than a country.

    Our presenter, Cenna Lloyd, departed after September’s tasting for a 3-week tour of South American vineyards so her offer to return and give us her insight into the wine sub-regions we will taste was just too good to pass up.

    The wines to be tasted are :

    • 2018 Vina Aquitina Rose [Chile]
    • 2018 Casa Marin Cartagena Sauvignon Blanc [Chile]
    • 2018 Tilia Mendoza Chardonnay [Argentina]
    • 2018 Alamos Malbec [Argentina]
    • 2015 Catena Alta Malbec [Argentina]
    • 2012 Queulat Cabernet Sauvignon [Chile]
    • 2014 Queulat Carménère [Chile]

    Because we are organising food matches for the wines to be presented, there will be a need to control numbers attending. I know time is running short with the tasting being less than a week away (partly my fault, but there is just so much going on at present) however it would be appreciated if you could let Wayne know of your intentions relating to attendance. We would prefer not to have to restrict attendance to such a great tasting but the food is limited to 45 servings.

    Please complete the November 2019 Payment Advice and return to Wayne either at the next tasting or by email.

    See you on Wednesday and let’s enjoy.
