From Chile comes Casillero del Diablo Pinot Grigio 2012, namely  the devil’s cellar, an easy drinking fruit-driven white wine with a bouquet of green apples and medium acidity on the palate. The King’s Favour Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2009 from New Zealand combines aromas of passionfruit with lime and grapefruit zest and a hint of minerality. Both wines will be on taste at the wine fair.

The Vintage Cellars International Wine Fair is on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 May, 2013 at Overseas Passenger Terminal, 110 Circular Quay W, Sydney. Sessions are Saturday: 10:00am to 5:00pm, Sunday from 11:00am to 5:00pm. Tickets are $30 and valid for 1 day from http://vintagecellars.com.au/iwf2013.
