If you want to splurge for a special occasion, Tin Shed has the answer with its glorious Single Wire Shiraz. It’s taken me a while to get onto the story of Tin Shed’s 2021 Single Wire Shiraz, a wine that was released late last year, but I’m singing it from the rafters: this is an outstanding wine and you shouldn’t wait as long as I did to try it. Produced from a single low-yielding vineyard in the Eden Valley, it is elegant and opulent with velvety tannins and layers of dark fruit and Christmas cake spices. It’s earned a seal of approval from Peter Clarke, who founded Tin Shed Wines in 1997 an ..read more

There’s something captivating about the idea of vineyards growing on the slopes of an active volcano, so when we were invited to a tasting of Mount Etna wines, how could we refuse? On the eastern coast of Sicily, Mount Etna is Europe’s tallest active volcano and one of the world’s most active. Shaped like an inverted C, or a crescent moon, its lower slopes are home to vineyards producing some of Italy’s most exciting wines. Some of those wines have made their way to Australia and the cellar of Sydney restaurant, Bottega Coco, which we recently had the pleasu ..read more

Rosé is a new addition to Taylors Wines’ Promised Land range. Much like grapevines, seahorses are a vital “indicator species” that demonstrate early the impact of climate change. It is fitting then that Taylors Wines should choose not only to feature the seahorse on the label for its new-look Promised Land range but also to donate a percentage of every sale to the global marine conservation organisation, Project Seahorse. According to the folk at Project Seahorse, by getting it right for seahorses, such as setting up marine protected areas, reining in bad fishing practices, and regulating wild ..read more

It’s a wine that connoisseurs like to collect and cellar, it’s netted a string of awards over the years (including the prestigious Jimmy Watson trophy), and it was the creation of a visionary Barossa Valley winemaker, the late Peter Lehmann. This year marks the 30th vintage of Stonewell Shiraz and to celebrate, Peter Lehmann Wines is hosting a number of exclusive experiences at its cellar door in Tanunda. T ..read more

Why Do Serious Wine Drinkers Love Riesling?
Food Wine Travel | Wine
by Christine Salins
1y ago
Pewsey Vale Vineyard, in South Australia’s Eden Valley, is dedicated solely to Riesling. Why do wine writers and serious wine drinkers love Riesling? Perhaps because it, more than any other variety, can produce such a range of styles, from dry and austere, to semi-sweet or luscious dessert wines. Also appealing is that it ages so gracefully in the bottle. Connoisseurs often appreciate both young and mature Riesling, enjoying it while it is young and fresh, and relishing the lovely toasty characters it develops after years of cellaring. And finally, Australian Riesling represents great value fo ..read more
