Bristol - Compare and Contrast: Rhone and Alsace Vs New World
Join us to compare the aromatic delights of Alsace and the full-bodied blockbusters of the Rhone against the New World newcomers. Can Australia's Eden and Clare Valley Riesling shape up to dry mineral-lead Alsatian examples? How about the spicy Gewurztraminer now grown throughout the world. Venturing into the heart of the Rhone Valley we find those superb expressions of Grenache and Shiraz from areas such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape and the Côtes du Rhone - does the new world styles from Barossa and South Australia compare to the old firm favourites?
