FCC Members wine-tasting party with Whispering Brook wines, Saturday April 22, 6 to 7:30 p.m., at Cafe Fresco.
Join the FCC and Whispering Brook wine makers Saturday April 22 at Cafe Fresco for an evening of wine tasting.
The tasting begins at 6 p.m. and includes each of Whispering Brook's four premium wines: Shiraz, Semillon, Merlot and Chardonnay
If you are not currently an FCC member, you can register online, or apply in person at the wine tasting.
Whispering Brook reds are open fermented, with gentle cap management to extract colour and fine tannins from the grape skins. After the completion of primary fermentation, the wine is transferred to new and aged french oak barriques to undergo malolactic fermentation and ageing.
The whites are vinified in stainless steel tanks with efficient cooling to preserve the delicate fruit bouquet and flavours and bottled as soon as possible to age in the bottle.
With an emphasis on wine science and art — learned by undertaking vintages in Bordeaux and the Hunter Valley and by working with wine makers in the Hunter Valley — Whispering Brook wine is hand crafted, with attention to detail to produce complex, fine quality boutique wines.
