Event Price: £20/seat

Now seen as the best Gallician winery, Pazo de Señorans regularly win awards for their top Albarino...and we have been lucky enough to get our hands on bottles of some of their best vintages for an awesome vertical wine tasting! Winemaker Javier Mareque will be taking us through six different vintages dating back to 2004...Get ready to try some world class Albarino on this evening!

Pazo de Señorans

The leading producer in Rias Baixas widely recognised as one of Spain's finest producers. It has frequently won "Best White Wine" trophy at the Wines from Spain awards and regularly receives the highest score from TWA of all Albariños.

There are two wines, Pazo Señorans Albariño and the Seleccion Añada. The former is generally sold as young wine in the year following harvest but, and this is the important thing about Señorans, it has the ability to age and is probably at its best 18-36 months after harvest. The Seleccion Añada is unique being aged on its lees in small steel tanks for up to 36 months or so and demonstrates above all the ageing potential of Albariño, and Señorans in particular, that we think no other producer can mimic.

Price: £37.50/seat

In March 2017 wine school & Streatham Wine House founders Jimmy & Beth travelled to the wonderful South Africa in search of the best new and established vinous drops of this emerging wine country. Mullineux and Leeu Family Wines are at the forefront of premium quality in the Swartland and we welcome Nicola Tipping from the estate to host a wonderful evening tasting exceptional Syrah and Chenin Blanc from £15 to £75 per bottle from site-specific terroirs.

Mullineux and Leeu Family Wines

Mullineux and Leeu Family Wines is one of the stand-out producers in South Africa's budding Swartland region. Winemakers Chris and Andrea Mullineux’s ambition is to bottle wines that are a true expression of the Swartland, and all steps of their winemaking process are taken with this in mind. They work closely with a select group of growers who follow sustainable, reasoned farming practices. In the cellar, apart from minimal amounts of sulphur, nothing is added to or removed from the wine. They do not make use of any yeasts, acids, tannins, enzymes, or fining and filtering agents. 

Apart from their wonderful Syrah, Chenin blanc-based white blend and a super rich Straw Wine made from air dried Chenin Blanc, fermented and matured in old barriques, Mullineux now have a range of spectacular single vineyard Shiraz and Chenin Blanc wines, each of which illustrates the amazing potential of the Swartland terroir. Volumes of the single vineyard wines are tiny, so availability is extremely limited. 

Wines on Tasting:

KLOOF STREET CHENIN BLANC 2016
KLOOF STREET RED 2014
WHITE OLD VINES SWARTLAND 2014
SYRAH SWARTLAND 2014
QUARTZ CHENIN BLANC 2015
GRANITE CHENIN BLANC 2015
SCHIST SYRAH SWARTLAND 2014
STRAW WINE SWARTLAND 2015 - "Platter 2017: Sweet Wine of the Year"

These are wines of outstanding quality - and if you are interested in how terroir dictates style then tasting the Quartz and Granite Chenin Blancs side-by-side will be extremely interesting for you!

This fascinating (and fun!) evening will focus on some of the classic wine regions of France and compare them against the best of the New World. Join us as we taste four pairs of wines, made from the same grape variety but from different countries.

It is only when you taste these wines together that the differences really stand out. The comparisons can bring some amazing insights into wine styles. Do you think you can tell the difference between Syrah from the south of France and Shiraz from the Barossa Valley? By the end of the evening you will be able to!
