SASSY

2013 Pinot Noir

First time I have tried a wine from this Or­ange pro­ducer and I liked what I tasted. Pinot with nice body full of dark cher­ries and light straw­berry flavours. FOOD: Lamb stir fry

RAT­ING: 92/100 RRP $30.00

TERRE a TERRE

2015 Blanc

Al­ways in­ter­ested in what wine­maker Xavier Bi­zot is pro­duc­ing down in Wrat­ton­bully. Here is a crisp flavour­some white that is a great starter for any meal to perk the ap­petite. FOOD: Pre-din­ner RAT­ING: 92/100 RRP $32.00

STOCK­MAN RIDGE

2014 Shi­raz

I must ad­mit that I haven’t trav­elled the Or­ange wine dis­trict. But it’s now on my bucket list and it’s be­cause of wines such as this. An­other well-priced Or­ange wine full of flavour. FOOD: Rump steak

RAT­ING: 92/100 RRP $23.00

BLUE PYRE­NEES

2013 Se­lec­tion One Shi­raz

Here is a Vic­to­rian win­ery that knows how to pro­duce a qual­ity wine and how to do it on a reg­u­lar ba­sis.

A bat­tery of gold medals al­ready on the bot­tle and more to come. FOOD: Roast RAT­ING: 94/100 RRP $40.00
