Drinks from Down Under

australianwinesTues-Thurs Tasting
Oct 20-Oct 22

This week we try three tasty wines from the land of plenty — Australia. Featuring:

  • Pewsey Vale Dry Riesling, Barossa Valley – Grown in the arid region of Barossa, this white is earning rave reviews (Suckling 96 pts) and is a scrumptious surprise: crisp and bone dry, it tastes of limes, white flowers, and fresh rosemary with a clean minerality throughout. $18 btl, $8 btg
  • Torbreck “Woodcutter’s Shiraz”, Barossa Valley – Acclaimed for making “opulent wines at reasonable prices” Torbreck’s latest Shiraz continues the tradition (ranking #32 on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines): plush flavors of raspberry, blackberry, mulberry and plum are balanced with savory notes of mocha, spice and smoke to create a rich and elegantly layered red. $23 btl, $9 btg
  • RedHeads Mohawk Cab, McLaren Vale – This powerful Cab from the Southern coast of Australia benefits from the Mediterranean climate: warm sun and cool breezes result in rich fruit flavours of black currant, blackberry and cherry with a lovely touch of cedar and mint on the finish. $22 btl, $9 btg

Tasting: $14

Paired with: Pulled Pork & Jalapeno Ranch Flatbread
