Sauvignon Blanc, yay or nay? I find people have very strong opinions about wines made from Sauvignon Blanc. Personally I enjoy a glass of Sauvy B, for me it makes me think of the beach and seafood. I also love the diversity you can find, for instance Aussie Sauv can be so different from New […]

Have you tried wine made from the Gamay grape yet? It produces a light-bodied red wine that is along the lines of Pinot Noir, although not as common. It would also be rude not to mention Beaujolais when we talk about Gamay because it’s this region, which sits beside Burgundy in France, that produces around […]

Recently I had the dilemma of trying to find a BYO restaurant in Perth for a double date on a Saturday night. We wanted somewhere delicious where we could take decent wine at retail price. And to be honest it was a friggen hard task! I googled and googled BYO restaurants in Perth and only […]

For Bastille Day yesterday we decided to crack into this Domaine de Vedilhan 2018 Viognier from the Langudeoc region in the South of France. I received this as a sample from the folks at Good Pair Days and knew it’d be the perfect accompaniment to my big pot of French Onion Soup and Cheesy Toasts […]

As some of you may know from my adventures on social media, I have recently got back from a trip to Tasmania. The wineries of Tasmania have long been on my wine travel bucket list. Why? Because for one, everyone I know who has visited Tassie (this is what the locals call Tasmania) has loved […]

Oh yes we so did. When I was back in Perth recently we totally raided Naomi’s wine cellar. Naomi has visited the Great Southern region a couple of times this year and she most definitely brought back some tasty loot. One of those bottles was this Castle Rock Estate 2018 Porongurup Riesling produced by winemaker […]

Did you catch my post a few weeks back about Vinomofo’s new “The Mofo Welcome Kit”? I was lucky enough to be sent a sample to try out, and let’s just say, this Chardonnay didn’t last long unopened. The Mofo Welcome Kit is a special introductory 3-pack of Vinomofo wines for $69 (down from $90). […]

This Riesling is part of their small parcel releases (aka there’s not a lot of it going around). Best’s Great Western are located in Victoria’s Great Western Grampians […]

Named after Bert Kleining, a bachelor who worked the land which the fruit is now sourced from” I was recently sent samples from Atze’s Corner new Barossa Legends Red Collection to taste and it’s safe to say this Bachelor 2017 Shiraz didn’t last long unopened.
