Yesterday afternoon the de Groots team made their way to an exclusive wine tasting event at The Oak Barrel Sydney to celebrate the addition of the new release Bosque De MatAsnons drop to the extensive wine portfolio of WoCA (Wines of Chile and Argentina).
We have to admit, our knowledge of Spanish wine is somewhat limited, however, our friendly hosts promptly placed a glass in our eager hands and we embarked on an educational wine tasting experience. We sampled a range of Chilean and Argentinean wines including a fruity full-bodied Rutini Malbec and a notable Chilean drop from Perez Cruz.
Special guest Jaime Postigo, general manager and winemaker of Bosque de MatAsnos, Spain, spoke passionately about his new Crianza 2009 and the Ribera del Duero viticultural region of Spain. The small gathering was indeed engrossed; however, we are not sure whether that had anything to do with his demi-God stature, chiselled jaw and deep olive skin. You take your guess.
Thank you WoCA for a fabulous event, we can’t wait to crack open a bottle at our next fiesta!
