The Reciprocal Annual Tasting 2018 | Cape Town
Nov 7 @ 17:30 - 19:00R345
“Terroir” is probably the most over-used word in Winespeak. It suggests a connection between land – the origin of the fruit – and what ends up in the bottle, but it doesn’t actually join the dots. If it is to mean something more than climate (itself a very changeable feature of the present wine landscape) it must surely take into account the part played by those who work the soil, their understanding of the environment, the multi-generational knowledge of those whose ancestors discovered what was unique about the site and are now dedicated to preserving it.
The theme of this year’s annual tasting is Land & Legacy – since land without legacy is a poor shadow of the terroir message…

Vintage and Non-Vintage Champagne
