We will compare the attractiveness of Australian wines with those of France, and see if people can tell which is which. The wines will be served blind in pairs in a similar style, with members voting after each pair for which they preferred and – if they wish – guessing which wine was which. The wines below are not in tasting order.
The French wines chosen by Jeffrey Benson are:
2015 Naturalys Viognier (Pays d’Oc) Domaine Gerard Bertrand; 2011 Domaine de L’Eglise Pomerol;
2013 Chateauneuf du Pape ‘Reserve de Château Fortia’;
2013 Crozes Hermitage ‘Terre d’Eclat’ Dom de la Ville Rouge; 2013 Cornas ‘La Sabarotte’ Domaine Courbis.
