Did you know that most of the flavour when tasting a wine is due to the sense of smell rather than taste?
Brand new to London’s Australia Trade Tasting and the first time on show in Europe is the Aroma Wall, a joint venture between Wine Australia and the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI). This large scale, interactive installation will showcase some of the key aroma compounds that make Australian wines so iconic in a fun and engaging way.
