Presented by winemaker and researcher Ulrich Fischer, visiting scientist at the AWRI, this workshop is a unique opportunity to learn more about Germany’s great Riesling wines. The workshop will include discussion of viticulture and oenology of German Riesling plus a structured tasting of wines rarely available in Australia.

The tasting will include exemplary wines produced from eight different terroirs, in addition to a comparison of three terroirs from the same producer and the same bedrock type from three wine estates. All wines are from the 2012 Vintage and classified as belonging to the Große Gewächse category (comparable to Grand Cru).

Current winemaking trends such as skin maceration or spontaneous fermentation will be discussed as well as how the concept of terroir is used in wine marketing.

This seminar is a great opportunity to discover more about how Riesling is grown and made in Germany and to discuss differences and similarities with Australian Riesling production.
