The New World – Southern Hemisphere Tasting Kit 4: Australia


In the last twenty years, Australia has become one of the most powerful wine exporting nations in the world. This is a result of great winemaking and establishing a style that epitomizes quality and value. This kit crisscrosses the entire country of Australia with two bone dry white wines, a Semillon from the Hunter, and a Riesling from the Clare Valley. A very complex Chardonnay from the Margaret River region, Australia’s best terroir for the grape is also included. A classic shiraz from the Hewitson Family in Barossa Valley is showcased alongside an exciting Pinot Noir from the cooler Great Western region, and a stellar old vine McLaren Vale Grenache from d’Arenberg, one of Australia’s “First Families of Wine.”

The kit includes a selection of 6 wines (187 ml / 6.3 oz. each ) – easily enough for two people to taste. The wines have been carefully selected by a CIA wine and beverage professor to illustrate the concepts of the area of focus.

These kits are typically only available for CIA master’s degree students. The ordered kit will be shipped to your preferred address and will include a welcome letter with a link to a pre-recorded guided tasting video. You can taste at your leisure guided by our experienced and credentialed faculty.

After you order, you will receive a shipment notification when your order is processed to ship. Please make sure that someone is available to sign for your package as an adult signature is always required – you can always ship to your nearest UPS store if necessary.
