Recently on twitter we ended up debating which is Australia’s finest white grape. Of course we were firmly in the Riesling camp, and with offering such as the Hardy’s Siegersdorf offering such great quality drinking, and cellaring potential, at around $10 why wouldn’t we?!
We also look at two other grapes that might cause a few arguments around your table. Danny recommends a Pennyweight Gamay, a variety sometimes sneered at as being an also-ran to Pinot Noir.
Brad also looks at a Merlot blend from Dunsborough, certainly a grape that has less love since the release of the novel and movie Sideways.
This week’s recommendations are:
- Hardy’s Siegersdorf Riesling 2009 ($10-15)
- Pennyweight Gamay 2008 ($24-26)
- Dunsborough Hills Merlot Cab. Sauv. 2008 ($20-$22)

Cheers… and happy wine buying!
