Presented by Dr Geoff Scollary, Retired Foundation Professor of Oenology at Charles Sturt University and Foundation Director of the National Wine and Grape Industry Centre. He is a former convenor of the University House Tasting Panel and now writes a monthly ‘grapevine’ column for Chemistry in Australia.
