If you’re keen on a drink or two, you may well be interested in a forthcoming dinner at the Edinburgh Hotel, in Mitcham.
Burgundy is never cheap and some of the wines that will be tasted on the evening retail well in excess of $100 (and the remainder hover dangerously close to the $100 mark).
White Burgundy is Chardonnay – but not as you know it. Unlike the ripe tropical fruit flavours, laden with vanilla that you might be familiar with, Chardonnay from Burgundy has more green apple like flavours (that’s due to the cooler climate), and much more restrained vanilla and buttery characteristics (that’s due to how oak is used).
Red Burgundy is made from Pinot Noir, a grape which is notoriously difficult to grow and almost always results in highly priced wines. The chances are you’ve enjoyed Pinot Noir from areas like Tasmania, the Adelaide Hills or parts of New Zealand. Pinot Noir from Burgundy is something a little bit different (and special) and if it’s a wine you haven’t experienced before, this is a great opportunity to try a whole pile!
Seating is limited to just 40 people so you should book sooner rather than later … The best thing is that you can book online … you don’t have to move, find a telephone or anything … just head over to Eurocentric’s online store.
