World of Wine Chile, Argentina & USA (Hitchin)
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Wine tasting from the Americas, where our focus is on Chile, Argentina and California.
Chile has a wide variety of climates from the cool, maritime Casablanca Valley perfect for making delicious, crisp, Sauvignon Blancs to the warmer interior for ripe reds from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It also has its own grape variety, originating in Bordeaux called Carmenere.
Argentina, on the other side of the Andes mountain range, is much hotter and arid and also has its own grape varieties in the shape of Malbec and the wonderful aromatic Torrontes. All are incredibly consistent and excellent value for money.
Over 90% of North American wine is made in California most famously soft, ripe Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. It too has its 'own' grape in the shape of Zinfandel. We'll taste wines from all three of these important countries and compare how style changes as we move from South to North.
