A TAST­ING AD­VEN­TURE

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Indulgence -

VISIT a par­tic­i­pat­ing liquor store and buy a Wine Ad­ven­ture Pack, put to­gether by Wine Lo­gis­tics and con­tain­ing six air­li­ne­size 187ml bot­tles (two stan­dard drinks) of pre­mium wines from a par­tic­u­lar re­gion: Coon­awarra Caber­net Sauvi­gnon and Mar­garet River Reds are among the choices, with McLaren Vale Reds, South Aus­tralian Shi­raz and se­lected whites to come in Au­gust and Septem­ber. A buyer tours re­gional vine­yards, send­ing sam­ples to a tast­ing panel, which picks the wines for each pack. There’s a win­dow-fronted dis­play ver­sion ($34.95) and a sad­dle pack with a carry han­dle ($30). The per­fect way to try unfamiliar la­bels be­fore buy­ing full-size favourites. (And good for cou­ples who don’t share tastes in wine.) From in­de­pen­dent liquor stores, su­per­mar­kets and in­ter­net sup­pli­ers. More: www.winel­o­gis­tics.com.au. Ju­dith Elen
