Shiraz Masterclass

6 May, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

An Unmissable Masterclass Experience!

This Masterclass is your chance to experience 10 superb shiraz wines from around the world matched with wonderful cheeses in the relaxed ambience of Milk the Cow licensed fromagerie in Carlton.

Here’s what to expect at this fun and informative event:

1. Your opportunity to try 10 superb shiraz wines matched with equally superb cheeses.
2. Gain a real understanding of this intriguing and wonderful grape variety, one of the oldest to be used for making wine.
3. Learn about its intricate characteristics, ageing potential, best time to drink, food matching, serving temperature and glassware to use.
4. Shared cheeseboards with breads, lavosh and detailed notes will accompany the showcased wines.
5. Detailed Masterclass Notes will be distributed at the end of the workshop

Guiding the Masterclass will be wine expert Bela Rice, who has nearly 30 years’ experience in the wine industry selling, consulting, distributing and educating.

The cheeses have been selected by cheesemonger Laura Lown.
Originally from the UK, Laura has recommended cheeses to HRH Queen Elizabeth and trains Heston Blumenthal’s chefs here in Melbourne.

“The Masterclass will be lots of fun,” promises Bela, “and everyone attending will learn a lot about shiraz without feeling intimidated.

“You will leave feeling excited about trying your next bottle of shiraz, and hopefully converted to the wonderful future anticipated pleasures that this variety will give you.”

The selected boutique wines are not generally available in the retail market, so this is an unmissable opportunity to sample the delights of some true hidden gems of the winemaker’s art.

Don’t miss this rare chance to get to know shiraz at a special event that offers great value and will linger on the palate and live on long in the memory!
