Wine Tasting at Cambridge Corn Exchange, Saturday 18th November
Join WIne Experts Oz Clarke, Tim Atkin and Olly Smith
Wines from award-winning Benguela Cove Lagoon Estate in South Africa are showcased with some 30 other top winemakers and retailers in a wine tasting event hosted at Cambridge Corn Exchange on Saturday 18th November.
Three of the UK’s most high-profile wine experts, Olly Smith, Oz Clarke and Tim Atkin, will be on hand at this walkaround wine tasting, offering wine recommendations and answering questions as well as sharing some general wine wit and wisdom.
Visitors will be able to sample a range of wines from Benguela Cove vintages including: Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Chardonnay 2015, Pinot Noir 2015, Shiraz 2014, Merlot 2014, Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Noble Late Harvest 2015.
The wine estate’s location and optimal climate conditions result in the ideal viticulture, say the owners. The south-easterly sea breeze is chilled by the Benguela current flowing up from Antarctica, to cool the grapes at night after the summer days, irrigated by above-average rainfall. The owners also created the UK's first golf and wine estate at Mannings Heath, West Sussex.
