Description of the Sanguine Wine Club Blending Session

In preparation for our Sanguine Estate Wine Club launch at the D’Orsa Reserve Release Dinner in August, we are offering a select few Sanguine mailing list customers an opportunity to join our winemaker Mark Hunter around a board room table to help blend the inaugural Sanguine Wine Club Shiraz. In this unique insight into the world of Sanguine Shiraz and over the course of an hour and a half, Mark will present you with a selection of wine samples extracted that morning from our barrels at the winery. He will then tutor you on how to blend an award winning wine taking into consideration the important role of tannins, oak, acid, fruit, depth, length and mouth feel so that you have all the tools necessary to formulate your very own wine blend. Mark will then take your creation along with other guests joining you in the session and formulate the most popular blend that will become our very first Sanguine Wine Club Shiraz – an honour which will in future be strictly reserved for Wine Club Members only.

How many successful bidders will there be?

Places are limited to the number of people we can fit around a board room table. We need to keep the session small and intimate so that you get the most out of Mark’s tutoring and so we can easily collate the results and formulate the ideal blend based on everyone’s contribution. Plus, there is not much room on the back label for a lot of names!
