How water affects wine: a unique tasting session is lifting the lid on mineral H2O

The life-giver that is water is quite possibly the most overlooked beverage of them all. Dining out often warrants several a bottle of the mineral kind to keep the palate crisp and clean between courses and different wines, but what effect does its seemingly benign minerality have on what we’re eating and drinking?

This is the question set to be answered and elaborated on at a unique tasting event at Newmarket’s Wine Cave on Wednesday 28th February. Hosted by Antipodes brand ambassador Morven McAuley and Wine Cave director and sommelier Joe Wang, the team will reveal the potential of how the purest mineral water impacts our palate when drinking. Which, by the way, is huge.

It’s a fascinating subject that is expected to enlighten even the most well-informed bon vivants. As you toggle between varying types of mineral water and authentic NZ wines (selected by the Wine Cave team) you will discover just how much your choice of water can alter your taste buds, so to speak. With limited spaces available at a cost of $35 per person, we suggest you book sooner rather than later.

The Fine Wine and Antipodes Water Tasting will take place Wednesday 28th February, from 6.30pm-8.30pm.
