The best known wine ‘valley’ in Victoria would have to be the Yarra Valley, but a little further afield there’s the King Valley, where winemakers such as the Dal Zottos have been working wonders with Italian varietals.
This week we look at their Pinot Grigio before popping over to the Barossa Valley for a bargain shiraz from Thorn Clarke. We finish up by looking at a Cabernet not from Margaret River or Coonawarra but from the stylish folks at Balgownie Estate up around Bendigo.
This week’s recommendations are:
- Dal Zotto Pinot Grigio 2010 ($15-$16)
- Thorn Clarke Sandpiper Shiraz 2009 ($15-$20)
- Balgownie Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 ($30-35)
