Barrel Club - Port & Chocolate Pairing

with Gavin Hubble

This 1½ hour session offers a brief (but broad) look into Traditional Port Wines from Portugal. The class starts by looking at the unique region where indigenous grapes endure tough growing conditions, hand harvesting and the traditional production techniques of these unique and vibrant wines. Then looking at colour, styles, palate structure, flavour profiles and vintages of these character-filled wines. We will also briefly explore the influence of the different levels of sweetness, ageing and of course the important characters and flavour profiles when pairing these varied styles of Port wines with desserts and cheese. This class will give you the confidence to make better-informed decisions on what you can enjoy with varied styles. I promise your taste buds will enjoy the process.
