Wine System Launched

Coravin, Inc. has announced that its award winning Coravin Wine Access System, a new technology that allows users to pour and enjoy wine from their favourite bottles without pulling the cork, will now be available  in Ireland, via distributor Findlater Wine and Spirit Group. 
For the first time, wine enthusiasts are able to enjoy wine by the glass without committing to the whole bottle. Coravin’s wine access technology leaves the cork in place, safeguarding the wine from oxidisation and allowing it to age naturally. Wine lovers can enjoy and share the same bottle during multiple occasions, over weeks, months or even longer without any wastage. Coravin also enables wine drinkers to access wine across multiple bottles during a single occasion.

It has not gone away of course- large quantities are still produced in South East Australia, but it is getting hard to find these wines at Tesco- not to mention on a wine list.
A new generation of Australian Chardonnay is growing up and some interesting examples were  introduced by Brian Walsh, chairman of the Australian Grape and Wine Authority and John McDonnell, Ireland’s own Australian wine guru, at a Masterclass in the Royal Hibernian Academy, venue for this year’s Australian Wine Fair.
