At its premiere, The Rite of Spring caused a scandalous riot – one of the biggest in music history. While it’s popularly believed that the riot stemmed from disdain at the contemporary composition and choreography being performed, there is evidence to show that the rioting was actually between different factions of Parisian society (traditionalists and modernists) hurling abuse at one another, rather than at towards the stage.
TarraWarra Tasting Notes
TarraWarra’s 2015 Estate Chardonnay
The Chardonnay reflects the flavours of Spring with grapefruit and lemon zest aromas with underlying notes of cashew nuts. However, like the complex and dissonant The Rite Of Spring – with it’s themes of sacrificial endings to provoke nature’s renewal – the Yarra Valley harvest came early in 2015 due to the warmer start to spring, creating superb fruit quality for the vintage.
