Visitors to the bar will also be able to taste the latest 2002 vintage of the Mosaïque range, as well as Jacquart's award-winning prestige cuvees, Brut de Nominée NV, Allegra 1999 and Katarina NV.

Pernod Ricard UK (stand D50) will also be out in force at the fair, offering tastings of wines across its whole portfolio.

Among the new offerings available to try at the event will be Jacob's Creek Three Vines, the Jacob's Creek Reserves range and The Black Cluster (Hunter Valley Shiraz), Wyndham Estate. The company is also offering sneak previews of Montana Brut Cuvee Rosé NV and the new Montana Waipara Reserve Riesling 2006.

Jeff Clarke (chief winemaker) and Tony Hoksburgen will present their Marlborough Terroir research at the New Zealand Winegrowers seminar and Pernod Ricard UK will also be present at the generic New Zealand Winegrowers stand (H20).

Wine Australia will be unveiling its 'Direction to 2025' strategy on the opening day of the LIWSF.

Presented by Kevin McLintock, chairman of the 'Directions' 15-member taskforce, and Paul Henry, Australian Wine & Brandy Corporation's GM of marketing development, the strategy will be discussed in the Waterfront Rooms 7 and 8 at 1015 for one hour on the Tuesday morning.
