Focusing on the subtle differences across a range of Shiraz/Syrah wines, the Bearbrass tasting group tasted six vintages from the Rhône Valley and Languedoc in France and Heathcote and the Barossa and Yarra Valleys in Southeast Australia.
Rising to the challenge of identifying each wine from the cryptic tasting notes, a group of 11 developing connoisseurs crashed and burned in a blind tasting in which the top score was 2 out of 6!
It was a fun night and we all agreed that more practice is required. Bring on next month!  -- Jill.
