For the first time in it’s eleven year history, Young Gun of Wine comes to Adelaide on Saturday November 19 to unearth the next superstars of wine.
Starting at 7pm, the event, Young Gun of Wine UNCUT, will feature over 60 wines from over 30 (and counting) of Australia’s most cutting edge winemakers. They’ll be transforming the 230 Flinders Street warehouse into a sensory wonderland with the help of The Henry Austin, whose celebrated chefs have designed dishes for the night, from locally sourced and wild ingredients, served with their signature Yum Cha style.
Established in 2007, the Young Gun of Wine discovers the finest and most innovative emerging winemakers throughout Australia. It is the place to spot the best new talent and trends in wine: what these people are making today, everyone will be drinking tomorrow. This search starts with UNCUT, an up close and unfiltered look at the freshest wines and winemaking in Australia.
The Young Gun of Wine has been dubbed “an incubator for emerging talent,” by Brian Walsh, Chairman of Wine Australia, with a past nominees list that “reads like a who’s who of the contemporary wine scene.”
Taras Ochota, the 2013 Young Gun of Wine, says it “shakes new names out of the woodwork, encourages creativity, and gives recognition to the cats filling bottles with amazing gear.”
Whilst wine commentator Nick Stock sums up the process as, “gathering like-minded and uniquely individual talents together, rallying eclectic and far flung tastes, making noise, getting them noticed and having a ripping time along the way.”
All guests will take home a gift wineglass from Riedel.
Leading wine purveyor, East End Cellars, is helping to bring this show to town.
