International Showdown: South Africa vs. Rest of the World

On January 17, TVC and the South African Wine Society enthusiastically join forces for an exciting showdown of premium red wines with four of South Africa’s finest in comparison to four international high-end reds from the rest of the world.  South Africa’s wine growing regions benefit from a Mediterranean-like climate with cold winters and dry summers. Winemaking in South Africa focuses on quality wine production and is characterized as a hybrid of both new and old world wine making. The SA reds include a blend from Vilafonté and a 2006 Vilafonté Series M blend of Merlot-Melbec-Cab Sauvignon-Cab Franc.

We will compare and contrast these South African gems with 4 flagship international, highly regarded and limited, red wines. These will feature Australian, French, Chilean and Californian reds: including a Moritz Premier Cru Syrah from Clarendon Hills, Australia, as well as a a 2006 Syrah from Ferraton Pere & Fils des Dionnieres

Our guest speaker for the night will be none other than well known wine writer and TV/radio personality: The Wine Doctor, Edward Finstein

This international show-down is a great way to kick off 2012 and is not to be missed!
