Last night seven people enjoyed a very pleasant evening tasting six wines under $15 from New World. It was the first meeting of the Wine Appreciation group ably and enthusiastically presented by Tina Carlton. We inspected the colour and then swirled and sniffed trying to identify as many aromas as we could before tasting. With a little prompting from Tina we identified gooseberry, old leather, honey, cinnamon, strawberry and many more, although not all in the same wine.
It was excellent value for $10 for the wine and room hire. But we do need more people to fully cover costs. It is essential that you advise Tina if you can’t attend so someone from the waiting list can be invited.
