Some wines disappoint us because they aren’t up to scratch. However Danny is disappointed with our first wine this week for entirely different reason. He’s such a fan of the Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling that he can’t keep the bottles long enough without drinking them! What a problem to have!
To overcome his disappointment we also look at a great everday wine from mighty Barossa producers Torbreck. The Juveniles might have been originally made for a Parisian wine bar, but it’s just at home with Friday night Pizzas.
Lastly we check in with Oliver’s Taranga Vineyards – a winery who we haven’t looked at in a while – and realise we’ve been missing out by not ripping into the bold and stylish HJ Reserve Shiraz.
This week’s recommendations are:
- Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling 2010 ($25-$33)
- Torbreck Cuvée Juveniles 2009 ($25-$28)
- Oliver’s Taranga Vineyards HJ Reserve Shiraz 2006 ($48-53)

Cheers… and happy wine buying!
