What You'll Get
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Yarra Valley, Yarra Valley, Victoria
Barrel tasting is a milestone in any wine lover's journey. True wine experts taste straight out of the barrel, giving insights into what others will be drinking in a few years.
Learning how the wine is made and discovering changes with every vintage and every barrel is a unique experience for you to taste. Question the elements like weather during grape picking or how long have the skins stayed on the fruit, is it natural or added yeast fermentation? Learn why different plots and clones between generation will also make differences in the palette, in which region is the fruit grown, why is it selected and what other elements are added to produce award winning wine in the Yarra Valley.
Your first tasting experience begins at 10.30am, where you will be guided into an exclusive, personal Barrel Tasting experience behind the cellar door. During the 1.5 to 2-hour Masterclass, you'll learn from the winemaker and taste wines direct from the barrels in un-matured state throughout the time allocated for your private experience.
Lunch is enjoyed overlooking the vines at Domaine Chandon at your private table to experience another Masterclass of the Chandon Sparkling range including 4 glasses per person with lunch. Compare different flavour profiles from traditional Brut to the latest style of champagne on trend. Part of your Masterclass experience is to access areas that are unavailable to the general public and this will add that special unique touch to the day.
Your next location in your Masterclass journey is where you will experience 5 wine styles of reserve and single-plot wines, including top-of-the-range and up to $250.00 per bottle tastings. This is a premium high-end Masterclass in a glass.
If time allows, we will add another venue for more tasting experiences local to the Yarra Valley.
Duration: 7 hours
