About the Event
Floriade Grass to Glass Wine Bar by Contentious Character Opens!
Local boys, the Contentious Characters will be launching the From Grass to Glass Wine Bar at Floriade this year along with three suitably Spring time new wines. The first is the 2019 Rose, Stop and Smell the Rose. Made with their Merlot grape, and pressed straight away to have minimal skin contact, this Rose displays a lovely Salmon colour with vibrant raspberry and red currant flavours.
The second is a 2019 Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blush called Sip Sip Hooray, featuring prominent peach and apricot flavours with a nice fresh acidity for length of finish.
The third a non vintage red bubbly, an intriguing blend of reds going back to 2008 which have been combined and freshly carbonated and aptly named ‘A Mongrel of A Dog’. This is a full bodied red rich in complexity with dark fruit flavours and undertones of leather and chocolate. Visit them during Floriade or NIGHTFEST.
