The Many Faces of Australian Shiraz.
Winemaker Tim Adams is back in Dublin and brings us on a tour of Australia on the good ship Shiraz.
Our tasting aims to challenge the perception that there is only one version of Australian Shiraz.
We hope to show that region, sub region, winemaking, vine age and vintage all contribute to more than one style of the variety from Australia.

Venue: Fallon and Byrne, 11 - 17 Exchequer Street, Dublin 2
Cost: 20 Euro per person
