Introducing Monopole – Media Tasting
Hosted by Brenton Fry and Michael Chong
After about a month since we had this tasting table, its about time we put that to good use. And since Brenton is in town, we took the opportunity to invite a few of our friends from the media to formally introduce Monopole and to present our collection.
Thank god most of our guests managed to locate us. Well… even though Singapore is a small town, people still lose their way around here. (That reminds us to get that locality map soon…)
We started with a short tour around our premise and our temperature-controlled warehousing facility before Michael delves into his ‘song-and-dance’ about Monopole.
The tasting went pretty well – proper yet intimate without too much formalities. We had a tasting of the key wines in our entire portfolio with Brenton providing insight for each brand and for the wines tasted.
2009 Shaw & Smith Sauvignon Blanc
2008 Shaw & Smith M3 Vineyard Chardonnay
2008 Nautilus Pinot Noir

2005 Jim Barry McRae Wood Shiraz
2007 Henschke Henry’s Seven

Once again, we thank our friends who supported us in this little tasting and for taking the time to visit us at our office. Cheers!!!
