What are the true rewards of maturation? 

Ever wondered what a wine might taste like 6, 8 or 10 years after bottling?

Want to understand better how to treat these wines in Service?


Join Sommeliers Australia’s Alex Kirkwood (ARIA), Ben Moechtar (The Certified Sommelier) and Greg Richardson (Vinous), as they answer all these questions, and more! The session will also cover decanting and service, and simply how to appreciate aged wine in general.

During the masterclass, you will taste several examples of current release wines vs their aged counterparts to gain an understanding of how a wine matures. Australia Riesling, Pinot Noir and Cabernet are just some of the styles could be tasted on the day. Join the discussion on aged wines in Australia, learn what styles you prefer with age and how to tell if a wine will age well.
