TOUR DE ROSÉ TASTING SYDNEY 13 FEBRUARY 2020 6.30PM

Event Date: Feb 13, 2020

Registration End Date: Feb 13, 2020

EXTREMELY LIMITED TICKETS! On Thursday the 13th of February 2020, United Cellars will be popping the tops on nearly 40 wines from all across the planet to showcase the breadth and depth of everything Rose! And just before Valentines day- what could be more perfect? We'll take a tour across the whole wine world- from it's initial home in Provence and Tavel in the South of France, through more savoury Mediterranean examples and then further into the lesser corners of Europe. There will also be New World examples from the Americas, New Zealand, and of course there will be a strong Australian contingent represented. We'll also throw in some special examples of Sparkling Rose to show again just how diverse this style of wine can be! This will be a spectacular tasting, and tickets are strictly limited due to the scarcity of some of these wines, so make sure you grab your tickets!

Some wines that will be on tasting

CHAMPAGNE JACQUINOT 'SYMPHONIE ROSE MILLESIME' 2013
Jean-Manuel Jacquinot obtained a degree in Oenology at the esteemed University of Reims. After this he became trainee oenologist at the world famous house of Veuve Clicquot. Today, Jean-Manuel has over 20 years of experience in making Champagne, is a Member of the French Oenologist Association, and is a qualified taster at the Comité Interprofessionnel des Vins de Champagne (CIVC). But Jean-Manuel is not a man to just rest on his laurels; he consulted to several fledgling English vineyards including Nyetimber and Ridgeview, winning several gold medals, as well as the trophy for the Best Sparkling wine in the International Wines and Spirits Competition- trumping many of the biggest names in France. He also consulted in Canada, winning gold for the best sparkling wine for Niagara Falls Wines. Safe to say Jean-Manuel knows how to make world-class sparkling wines!

CHATEAU D'ESCLANS 'WHISPERING ANGEL' ROSE 2018
Sourced from grapes grown from some of the most choice land in the surrounding region of La Motte en Provence, consisting primarily of Grenache, Rolle (Vermentino) and Cinsault. Aromas of peach, white cherry and white raspberry mingle together. The palate displays flavours of dried cherry, liquorice, cream and spice.

MIRABEAU COTES DE PROVENCE ROSE 2018
A blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Cinsault and 10% Syrah carefully selected from the best soils of Côtes de Provence. The nose shows rose petals and spice but also crab-apples and red apples. Some really nice peach character on the palate that’s medium-bodied and shows a textured mouthful but good acid drive. This rose is delicious, elegant and refreshing. From the home of top-quality Rose, this wine offers great value for money.

UNITED CELLARS SELECTION 'ROSE BY TOM BARRY' 2018
WINNER; James Halliday's Wine Companion 2020 WINERY OF THE YEAR! Made in partnership with the Jim Barry family wine company - one of Australia's best producers - from a Single Vineyard in Kuitpo (sub region of Adelaide Hills) planted in 2002. Beautiful aromas of spice, red berries and subtle floral notes. Wonderfully fresh and vibrant on the palate with gentle flavours of wild berries, pink grapefruit and mineral notes. These delicate fruit characters culminate in a dry and savoury finish. This beautifully balanced Rose, and a true delight to drink.

LA LINEA TEMPRANILLO ROSE 2017
Having picked each block at optimum ripeness (which in a cooler, later season meant approximately half a baumé later than in ’16), we used the proven techniques that have made La Linea rosé a benchmark style: some time on skins after crushing for gentle tannin extraction, fermentation of clean juice at relatively low temperature, and short maturation before bottling while fresh and crisp.
