Next time you are in […]

Celebrate World Chardonnay Day today!  This famous French variety is easily the most recognised and enjoyed white wine worldwide. Chardonnay has been grown in, experimented with and been successfully adapted to just about every wine-producing region on earth.  Chardonnay offers diverse styles from the lean, steely structured, crisp and clean styles, to the more rich, full bodied examples, often enhanced by toasty vanillin oak characters.  Chardonnay offers a wonderful spectrum of flavours, from those of lemon and apple through to exotic, tropical fruits and spices. It seems there is a chardonnay to please just about every palate! #chardonnay #worldchardonnayday
Today is National Rosé Day! Yet another reason to enjoy a refreshing glass of chilled Rosé with friends!  Rosé is made from red wine grapes that are fermented on their skins for just a few hours,  instead of being fermented on their skins for weeks at a time, like they are during red winemaking.  Rosé is also made in a few different styles, from the dry, pale, salmon-pink styles to the
bright red and slightly sweeter styles of wine. Either way, Rosé is made and enjoyed all over the world.

Grenache is grown around the world and it is mostly known as a blending partner with other grape varieties. However,  when it is made into a varietal wine on it’s own, Grenache can produce a much loved and richly flavoured red wine that shows an abundance of red berries and delicious peppery spices.  Some of the finest Grenache wines are made in Chateauneuf du Pape (pictured, with the large stones or 'galets' that reflect the sun onto the grapes to assist with ripening), in the Southern Rhone. Those wines are usually made from 100% Grenache. Other great wines from this region are made from Grenache blended with Syrah and Mourvedre. These iconic wines are also full-bodied, rich and textural with a concentration of spicy red fruit aromas and flavours.  In Spain, Grenache is known as Garnacha and it is used in blends with Tempranillo,  from regions such as Priorat and Rioja.  Outside of Europe, some of the world’s highest quality Grenache wines are made in the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale,  as well as other Australian regions. Made from old bush vines, these wines are known for their impressive concentration of ripe fruit flavours and their overall approachability. Being a late ripening grape, Grenache needs to be planted in warm or hot climates. #grenache #internationalgrenacheday
International Pinot Noir Day - Friday August 18th  Did you know? Pinot Noir, has the highest concentration of resveratrol, which is a very powerful antioxidant. Pinot Noir also contains the least amount of sugar, when compared with other red wines.  Pinot Noir can be made into a variety wine styles, from light and fruity styles featuring cherry and strawberry notes to more complex, gamey and earthy styles. Pinot Noir is usually higher in acid and lower in tannin, making it an ideal pairing for lighter, fattier foods like duck, cheese and lamb. 
Often, the region defines the style. Along with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir is the main grape variety in Burgundy, where the cooler climate produces highly prized wines, that have been loved throughout history of drinking wine. Germany is also known for high quality Pinot Noir. As well as France and Germany, the ‘new world’ wine countries such as the Australia, USA, Chile, South Africa and New Zealand also produce high quality Pinot Noir. #pinotnoir #pinotnoirday #pinotlover
Who doesn't love a glass of pristine Chablis?! Chablis is the name given to Chardonnay from the Chablis wine appellation, in France.  Chablis is also the name of the town that lies in the valley of the Serein river, that runs through the northern part of Burgundy, one of the world’s most loved wine regions. Burgundy is famous for Chablis (White Burgundy) and Pinot Noir (Red Burgundy).  The climate in Chablis is very cool, resulting in bright, fresh wines with high acidity. Chablis and Petit Chablis are also known for displaying aromas and flavours such as green apple, lemon and flint.  Most village level Chablis wines are unoaked and some wine experts believe that Chablis is the purest expression of the varietal character of Chardonnay.

The spectacular Margaret River wine region produces outstanding Chardonnay, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc as well as superb Bordeaux style red blends made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Located 200 kilometres south of Perth, the Margaret River has a warm maritime climate. This results in grapes that have concentrated fruit aromas and flavours while still retaining high levels of acidity,  due to the cooling ocean breezes. This also allows the Margaret River to offer fresh, elegant and restrained wines as well as full-bodied and powerful wines #margaretriverwine #australianwines #wine #winelovers
