We’ve added two new wines to our South Africa range and tonight, we’ll take this opportunity to try these, rather curious, additions together!
The NEW wines we’ll be trying tonight are:
Wine 1: Diemersdal Estate Grüner Veltliner, Cape Town 2019
Wine 2: Withington Malbec, Darling 2019
Who’s on hand to help tonight
We have some staff attending tonight, so please feel free to use the below usernames and tag any of us if you need a hand (and if you’re new to The Community, please don’t hesitate to ask any questions you might have!)
@laura - Community Manager @Kelly - Community Co-ordinator @MrLaura - one of our wine advisers in Member Services
Here’s how things will work:
We’ll post a poll to see who’s here - please let us know, and feel free to say hi and start chatting before we start.
To begin, we’ll invite you all to pour a glass, have a swirl and take in the aromas, and post your thoughts and first impressions. Take your time and have a good swirl and sniff.
We’ll then taste the wines together, one by one and ask you to share your own tasting note. Do add any additional food matches and/or your thoughts on how well the wine is drinking now, and how much longer it might age. Anything goes, and there are no wrong answers!
After this, we’ll possibly have time to ask for your mark out of 10, favourite wine of the two or final thoughts.
And after that, if you want to continue chatting about the wines then please feel free!
We’re very excited for tonight’s tasting and we’re looking forward to trying these wines! See you all there! Feel free to start chatting below and we’ll get going officially at 8pm.
