Wine & Viticulture Journal tasting to focus on Australian cool climate Shiraz

Cool climate Shiraz from Australia will be the focus of the Wine & Viticulture Journal’s next regular tasting.

Producers of these wines are invited to register their interest in the tasting by emailing Wine & Viticulture Journal editor Sonya Logan () by no later than next Thursday (28 January).

The results of the tasting will be published in the March-April issue of the Journal.

Sonya said for the purpose of the tasting the Journal would adopt the same definition of ‘cool climate’ as that used by the National Cool Climate Wine Show, namely:

  • 1600 Heat Degree Days or less
  • cool nights in the growing season
  • four distinct seasons
  • large variation in daytime to night-time temperatures
  • cool autumns

The total number of wines that can be entered in the tasting is limited with entries accepted on a first-in-best-dressed basis.

Samples for the tasting will need to be received by no later than Thursday 11 February.

Meanwhile, the results of the Journal’s recent tasting of Tasmanian, Clare and Eden Valley Rieslings will be revealed in the soon-to-be released January-February issue of the Wine & Viticulture Journal.
