Many of you know that we are traveling to Australia this fall. So when I have been purchasing wine this last while I have been trying new ones. I have found 2 that I really like.
The first is Banrock Station Cabernet Merlot.Banrock Station is situated 200km north-east of Adelaide at Kingston-on-Murray, South Australia. This wine is Rich plum flavours of plum and cherry with hints of cinnamon, subtle vanillin oak and soft fine tannins. I really like the wineries that indicate which protein (beef, pork, lamb, fish) is best served with it. This wine retails for under $10.
I then purchased a bottle of The Formula - a Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz.This was for a hostess gift of the people we were staying with on the Alberta Simmental Tour.
My next purchases are going to be from the Peter Lehmann Collection. My friend Sean Trenoweth works with their organization. We hope to see Sean on our travels this fall.
Now that I am expanding my tasting of wines, I think I may have to follow this Spanish saying "Good wine ruins the purse; bad wine ruins the stomach."
