Young Gun of Wine \\\ Adelaide \\ Vigna Bottin

Young Guns of Wine UNCUT \\\ Adelaide \\\ Saturday November 19

For the first time in it’s eleven year history, Young Gun of Wine comes to Adelaide on Saturday November 19 to unearth the next superstars of wine.

Starting at 7pm, the event, Young Gun of Wine UNCUT, will feature over 60 wines from over 30 (and counting) of Australia’s most cutting edge winemakers. They’ll be transforming a CBD warehouse into a sensory wonderland with the help of The Henry Austin, whose celebrated chefs have designed dishes for the night, from locally sourced and wild ingredients, served with their signature Yum Cha style.

Taras Ochota, the 2013 Young Gun of Wine, says this event “shakes new names out of the woodwork, encourages creativity, and gives recognition to the cats filling bottles with amazing gear.”

Whilst wine commentator Nick Stock sums up the process as, “gathering like-minded and uniquely individual talents together, rallying eclectic and far flung tastes, making noise, getting them noticed and having a ripping time along the way.”

All guests will take home a gift wineglass from Riedel.

Leading wine purveyor, East End Cellars, is helping to bring this show to town.

Young Gun of Wine \\\ Adelaide

Off the Vine and On the Hunt for Australia’s Next Young Gun of Wine

John Dexter
The Adelaide Review

Young Gun of Wine UNCUT will come to Adelaide for the first time this November 19 to hunt for the Australia’s next wine superstars and showcase the country’s most cutting edge winemakers.

The UNCUT event will present more than 60 wines from over 30 cutting-edge Australian winemakers to its grinning, sipping attendees in the search for the industry’s best new talent.

Nestling into a yet un-announced CBD warehouse, UNCUT will be comprised of a three-hour wine tasting where those dozens of wines will be sipped at, savoured and dissected by attendees. Following this vinous exploration, Adelaide’s own The Henry Austin’s similarly original modern Australian yum cha dishes will be available for purchase, and a rollicking party will commence.

Just like the competition it accompanies, Young Gun of Wine UNCUT seeks to take the pretensions out of wine. This character is reflected in the awards given each year. Aside from the eponymous Young Gun of Wine award, the People’s Choice and and Winemaker’s Choice awards add variety and more democracy to how the wine is selected.
