About Vintage: Tamar 2020 | Delamere Masterclass
An immersive tour of traditional method sparkling wine in the Delamere Vineyards winery, with owners and winemakers Fran Austin and Shane Holloway. Explore the making of sparkling - the first stage of wine making, then blending and tirage, a demonstration of riddling, disgorging and liquer addition. Tastings will reveal the effect of aging on lees and time under cork. After a one hour tour, for an optional cellar door tasting of the Delamere range afterwards, please allow an additional hour.
Delamere occupies a special spot in the ‘sparkling’ heartland of the Tamar, at Pipers River, where some of Australia’s finest fruit is grown. Fran and Shane share winery and vineyard management, family and a passion for cool climate wines. At Delamere, they produce both sparkling and table wines of outstanding character, and Fran has been feted with numerous awards including Gourmet Traveller Young Winemaker of the Year.
