At the Grape choice last week I had a chance to sample a delicious Shiraz/Grenache blend from McLaren Vale, Australia. A good balance of lively berry flavors, spice, acid and oak. At $10 a bottle it’s a terrific deal!
Esquin featured Torbreck from the Barossa Valley (which is in South Australia) last Thursday (Aug. 13th).
Some of my favorites are as follows:
Woodcutter’s Semillon. Had aroma’s of citrus with flavors of almond, pineapple, peach and mineral notes. I really enjoyed this one and I am not partial to Semillon for the most part. $18.
Grenache Shiraz Mataro. Big berry flavor, blackberry and cherries, mineral and spice. Very balanced with adity just right and tannins. $21.
