The 2012 Frankland Estate International Riesling Tasting is the sixth celebration of the quality and diversity of the world's finest riesling wines sponsored by Frankland Estate. A not-to-be-missed celebration of the most noble of white wines, in all its diversity of style and regional nuances.
Tastings, masterclasses, lunches and dinners over this two day event offer a rare opportunity to discover the astonishing diversity of the Riesling grape. Dry, off-dry and sweet style rieslings from new and old world regions will be examined – from as far afield as the Finger Lakes USA, Slovenia, South Africa, Alsace and Germany, to the riesling producing regions within Australia.
The tastings will be facilitated by an expert panel led by Jancis Robinson, world-renowned wine commentator and Master of Wine and Berlin-based international riesling authority Stuart Pigott.
The event is part of an international 'Riesling Coalition' pioneered by Frankland Estate, which sees similar major Riesling celebrations hosted annually in different parts of the world.
The objective of the two day event is to encourage and promote a greater understanding and enjoyment of this wonderful grape variety. The programme, like a glass of fine riesling, seeks to both ravish the senses and stimulate the intellect.
