Mahi Wine Blending Session
Saturday 3.00pm & Sunday 1.30pm
Brian's Masterclasses are educational, fun, and just a little competitive! Learn about winemaking, the blending process and how small changes make a big difference because everyone’s palates are different.
Included: a glass of wine on arrival
A brief overview of Mahi, and Marlborough as a region, looking at where Marlborough is and why the wines are so distinctive.
We then taste through two flights of two wines, all current samples from tank and barrel. The flights are along the lines of:
- Stems versus whole bunch
- Two different clones
While the judge is out of the room I then ask for the teams blends and write these up on a white board. Once the judge has chosen the favourite wine the winning team will get a small prize from the winery, and all sorts of hero worship.
