A one-night voyage through the experimental qualities of Riesling. Tastings abound.
If the vino fiend in you likes nothing more than the emperor of German drops — Riesling — then this is for you. For one night only, United Cellars will be bringing Rieslings from all over the world to the Australian Design Centre for an event dubbed Acid Haus. And, for the price of a ticket, you'll get to sample every one.
You'll be tasting your way from Australia and New Zealand to Austria and Germany, and back. You might be surprised by the variety of flavours one humble grape can produce. In fact, British wine critic Jancis Robinson once wrote, "Riesling is indisputably the greatest white wine grape in the world."
As you stroll around trying to decide whether or not she's right, you'll be met with roaming tasty morsels, including oysters. Do not chase the waitstaff.
