Chardonnay and Shiraz Clone Regional Tasting
Grape growers and winemakers interested in clonal variation of Chardonnay and Shiraz are invited to attend a tasting held by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (formerly the Department of Agriculture and Food WA). The tasting will consist of up to five clones of Chardonnay from the Riverland, Margaret River and Great Southern for comparison. Also included will be six clones of Shiraz sourced from the Barossa, Margaret River and Grampians wine regions.
The wines for this tasting have been supplied through the national research project assessing the clonal variability in Chardonnay and Shiraz for future climate change. Attendees will gain a better appreciation of how clonal selection can influence wine style and how clones perform in contrasting climates.
