WINE TALK

Wangaratta Chronicle - North East Regional Extra - - Front Page - WITH ANITA

THEY say one of the best ways to take care of your men­tal health and well­be­ing is to be phys­i­cally ac­tive and make sure you keep learn­ing new things.

While that might in­volve pur­su­ing an aca­demic qual­i­fi­ca­tion, an in­for­mal ap­proach can ap­par­ently be just as ef­fec­tive, like tak­ing up a hobby, a game or sport, or pick­ing a mu­si­cal in­stru­ment.

Broad­en­ing your hori­zons when it comes to wine can eas­ily be achieved in this re­gion be­cause there are so many in­ter­est­ing va­ri­eties to try ev­ery­where you look, there’s no rea­son to limit your­self.

You can take a road less trav­elled in more ways than one if you make your way to Glen­rowan and try a lesser-known Ital­ian va­ri­ety like Mor­ri­son’s Prim­i­tivo.

It’s an un­apolo­get­i­cally red lover’s red, with a deep, pur­ple tinged colour and a spir­ited aroma which is all about wild berries and savoury oak.

It has a medium body with vi­brant, earthy flavours, blend­ing dried herbs with hints of rasp­berry and plum.

The wine was made us­ing tra­di­tional meth­ods and aged in French and Amer­i­can oak casks, which cer­tainly en­hance those earthy, savoury qual­i­ties, which should fur­ther de­velop in time.

Or try it now with hearty Ital­ian food like lasagne and pizza and con­sider it an im­mer­sive, cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ence.

One must take this self-im­prove­ment strat­egy se­ri­ously.
