Faults workshop @ the IMW

14 November 2018 , 00:00  | London


With combined roles of wine lecturer, consultant winemaker and wine analyst (Lincoln University, Hill Laboratories), Kirsten Creasy was well known throughout the New Zealand wine industry for her informative lectures bridging the worlds of practical winemaking and academic research.

She and her husband Glen have recently moved to the Languedoc and she has offered to conduct a day-long workshop on the causes, identification and analysis of common wine faults at the Institute of Masters of Wine’s London headquarters on Wednesday 14 November.

Join her for this tutored tasting specially designed to illustrate varying levels of TCA, VA, mouse taint, brettanomyces and sulphides. By preparing samples with different levels of these compounds, she will be giving attendees the chance to gauge their individual sensitivities. This tasting is being organised by JancisRobinson.com. Thanks to Emma Dawson MW, the sample wines are being provided by Marks & Spencer.

Full-price tickets are £70 but MWs and MW students are being offered a special rate of £50. To sign up or find out more, see here.
