This weekend coming, a small group of Waud Wine Club members are getting together for an epic wine battle between France and the New world.
Each person has been given a french or new world style – and they have been drawn into individual battles to see who has the best wine. Each person has to present their wines and give as much information as possible to try and get the others on side to vote for their wine. Each wine will be marked out of 10 and we will also find out the ‘Wine of the night’.
There is no strict price limit on the wines this time, but we can expect the wine prices to range between £10 & £50 pounds.
Battle 1: French Viognier (Condrieu) versus New World Viognier
Battle 2: French Chardonnay (Meursault) versus Californian Chardonnay
Battle 3: French Cab Sauv / Merlot (Bordeaux left bank) versus South African Cab Sauv / Merlot
Battle 4: French Syrah (N. Rhone) versus Australian Shiraz
Battle 5: French Merlot (Pomerol) versus New Zealand Merlot.
