Presenter: Kim Tyrer of Galafrey Wines
To conduct these we need a minimum of 14 people. Interested?
Riesling is the wine with the most potential for ageing with some over 100 years old.
Kim Tyrer was born a year after her family first planted vines on their Mount Barker property in 1978. She grew up on the vineyard but she went on to study visual arts rather than winemaking and worked as a professional artist after graduating. Being the only child, Kim was asked by her father, Ian, if she wanted to take over the estate.
She was not formally trained, so the path to becoming confident enough in the winery took until 2011 for her to take full control.
“…I am a self-taught winemaker and am often self-conscious about this. It makes me work even harder, be more focused. The vineyard is dry grown and has a great sense of home. I like my wines to reflect that.”
This is the fourth session and follows our successful Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon sessions. Again, this will be a vertical tasting of five (5) wines. Food, wine, glasses and expertise will be provided for each session.
