We like big calls here on Wine Week, and there’s no bigger call than to name a wine as the best single vineyard white wine in the world. That’s exactly the accolade that the Mount Pleasant Lovedale Semillon picked up this week in London at the International Wine and Spirits Competition. After a call like that, we had to check it out.
While no one has ever called the Mamre Brook Shiraz the best wine in the world, we’ve never been unhappy drinking it, and think the new label design is pretty good too.
To round out the week, and our last episode before number 200, we check in with a Chardonnay from Yabby Lake. Tom Carson and the folks from Yabby Lake are taking part in the Wine Rules touch footy competition this weekend in Elwood, so why not drop past and try his wine if you haven’t already had the chance to.
This week’s recommendations are:
- Mount Pleasant Lovedale Semillon 2005 ($40-$45)
- Saltram Mamre Brook Shiraz 2008 ($25-$35)
- Yabby Lake Chardonnay 2007 ($32-35)
You can subscribe to the Wine Week Radio podcast via iTunes and every week we’ll have a new episode where we look at what’s happening in the wine industry.
Cheers… and happy wine buying!
