This week we look at a couple of wines that manage to coax brilliant results from grapes being grown in areas not renowed for the varieties. We check out a shiraz that has great cellaring potential but comes from a region better known for its rieslings. There’s also a brilliant chardonnay from a small producer in the Hunter Valley, a region iconically known for another white varitey. And finally we look at a red blend from McLaren Vale that’s a real winner.
In this episode we recommend:
- Leasingham Bin 61 shiraz 2005 ($16-24)
- Pooles Rock chardonnay 2005 ($25-30)
- Gemtree Vineyards Tatty Road 2006 ($15-19)
Cheers… and happy wine buying!
