One of Singapore’s most established and popular wine bars – Que Pasa – hosted a wine tasting of Misha’s Vineyard Wines with our star winemaker Olly Masters presenting the range of wines. It was fantastic to see such interest from the mix of experienced wine aficionados to people who were quite new to wine. Some of the tasters were trying Gewurztraminer for the first time – and loved it!
During the introduction we talked about New Zealand and why New Zealand wine has made such a splash on the world stage in such a short period of time – and had them taste the “freshness and purity” that only can come from a country with such breathtaking beauty and pristine environment. We then went through a tasting of the Misha’s Vineyard wines that was accompanied by some delicious snacks put on by the Que Pasa team to match the range of aromatic white wines and Pinot Noir.
Singapore’s wine market continues to develop at a pace to match the F1! Misha and Andy recalled going to Que Pasa in 1995 when it was the only wine bar in Singapore. Now with wine bars and wine clubs all over the island city it was great to see the first one still delivering fantastic wines and food to its customers. As interest in wine develops in Singapore the style of wine from New Zealand is becoming even more popular. The palate style and Asian food match of our pure cool climate varietals is especially pleasing to Singaporeans looking for wines of elegance and texture.
Thanks to the amazing team at Que Pasa for a wonderful experience, to our great distributor in Singapore – Crystal Wines, and thanks to all those wine lovers who came along to try our wines. We plan to be back regularly to show you new vintages and continue our friendship.
