Event Details

 

The red kangaroo is the world’s biggest marsupial, standing over 5 feet tall on average, with some recorded as another 20 inches taller and weighing up to 185 lbs.  The other Australian big reds are the wines, so while we have no kangaroos, we have four full bodied blends and some of the best of four straight varietals, for eight wines in total. Come and hang out with the big reds and top it all off with a Steak Frites Dinner on March 5th at the Faculty Club. 

Our blends include: Cabernet Merlot, which produces a smoother, rounder wine that is often referred to by experts as plummy-luscious and velvety. GSM is a blend which consists of Shiraz, Grenache,and Mouverdere that results in a delicious deep red wine. Shiraz Viognier is a more than just a simple blend of a red wine and a white wine grape variety, but is carefully produced by the method of co-fermentation. Here the red Shiraz grapes are mixed with the white Viognier grapes before the wine is made.

First we taste the four blends, then the four varietals. Here are the wines.
