Good afternoon/evening everyone!
Welcome to tonight’s LIVE virtual tasting of two new Blind Spot wines.
If you’re new to The Community and need help with how to use the forum for the tasting and what the tasting involves, have a read of our guide 'How To - Take part in our virtual #TWSTaste events
This is a chance to try two new reds from our Blind Spot range made exclusively for us in collaboration with the brilliant Mac Forbes in Australia.
The wines we’ll be trying tonight are:
Wine 1: Blind Spot Strathbogie Ranges Pinot Noir 2020
Wine 2: Blind Spot Touriga Nacional 2020
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!)
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!
Looking forward to tonight’s tasting and to try these wines! See you all there! Feel free to start chatting below and we’ll get going officially at 8pm.
