Wine Club Tasting at The Arkaba

On Tuesday evening I was invited to The Arkaba Hotel in Adelaide to meet their wine club members and present some of our wines for tastings. What a great night it was and I met some wonderful people - some even with family roots in the Barossa (small world!). Quite a few of the members are great fans of aged rieslings and it was interesting to have them try our 2007 Eden Valley Riesling and note how they could actually taste the characteristics that ensure a riesling will age well.

I also took a few bottles of our 2005 Barossa Shiraz and a lot of people were very impressed. It is always wonderful to get such honest positive feedback!

It was a great opportunity to meet people who had no idea we (Karra Yerta Wines) even existed. It is still such a jungle out there as far as new wines go but slowly we are raising our profile and with all the recent reviews, things are looking very positive.

A big thank you to Tania of The Arkaba for inviting me to the tasting - her enthusiasm is most definitely contagious!
