Australian Great Whites Tasting
At the Faculty Club
May 13, 2014


The Australian Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias) is widely distributed throughout temperate and sub-tropical regions in the northern and southern hemispheres. It is most frequently found off southern Australia, South Africa, northern California and the north-eastern United States. In Australian waters the white shark's range extends primarily from southern Queensland, around the southern coastline and to the North West Cape in Western Australia.

Our Great Whites can be found in most wine regions and on May 13, we have a special evening with wines from Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales.

Wine Australia notes “There is a level of extraordinary diversity and quality in all that Australian white wine has to offer and it won’t surprise you that the winemakers who create these amazing wines have a unique approach that sets their wines apart from the rest of the world”. You will experience that diversity by registering for our Great White evening.

The evening will start at 6:30 with as usual a reception wine, and then the tasting starts at 7:00 p.m. Light foods will be served during the tasting.
