Wine tasting evening with Matthew Jukes


Wine writer and buyer Matthew Jukes hosts a wine tasting event on 27 January. Taste a range of wines from Australia and New Zealand, covering a selection of grape varieties and vintages, as well as classic wines and museum releases that have been hand-picked by Jukes.

The tasting will be conducted under the expert guidance of Jukes and four influential winemakers from top Antipodean wineries: Sally Williams (Wither Hills), Toby Barlow (St Hallett), Mike Symons (Stonier), and Andrew Hardy (Petaluma).

Sixteen wines will be showcased at the tasting, each served with a carefully matched canapé. Guests can then enjoy a four-course dinner, with dishes designed to show off the specific attributes of one wine from each of the estates.
