Grape Expectations - Gamay & Grüner Veltliner
Join us in Manchester City Centre for this wine tasting which forms part of our "Grape Expectations II" course. Each month we will look at some of the world's most famous and loved Red and White grape varieties and taste the diverse selection of varied flavours and styles of wines these grapes produce. In July we will be tasting Gamay & Grüner Veltliner.
Grüner Veltliner – please don’t call it GruVe – is grown in many parts of central Europe, but it has been propelled onto the world stage by its exploits in Austria. Here, it is capable of making white wines that vary from crisp, light and refreshing to full-bodied and peachy, depending on where and by whom it’s grown. Its success here has prompted several producers in the southern hemisphere to experiment with the grape, and we’ll compare what they produce with the Austrian originals.
Gamay is best known for its role in Beaujolais, which is a candidate for the most improved region in French wine over the past two decades. Forget Nouveau, modern Beaujolais is juicy, thirst-quenching wine that great in summer but which goes down pretty well in winter too. Beaujolais will be the focus for the line-up, but we may sneak in an example from the Loire Valley or further afield.
On the night we will taste at least 6 wines accompanied by full tasting notes and some cheese and ham to nibble on.
Perfect for those who love wine and want to know more. A great gift idea too!
