I love this wine. When we decided to add a Pinot Gris blend to the La Boheme Range, one could have thought that even Dame Nellie Melba would have approved of it. After all it was one of her favourite operas to perform. Named ‘Act 3′ in the range , the Pinot Gris is backed up by Riesling and Geuwrztraminer and the result is a beautifully aromatic white wine. Very enjoyable on its own but quite chummy with salmon or chicken.
This zippy low-alcohol white wine just hits the spot for the warming Spring days. Made from Moscato Giallo grapes grown at our vineyard in the King Valley, it is fresh, slightly spritzy, beautifully aromatic and best of all, only 5.5% alcohol. A touch on the sweet side but balanced by drying acidity, this Moscato is perfect chilled as an aperitif or with chunks of seasonal fresh fruit. Lip-smacking good.
Who wouldn’t get excited about a glass of Gamay. Think gorgeous Beaujolais (no, not nouveau; I am talking about the more serious stuff) and you are on track. Medium bodied red wine; plump and slightly spicy, black cherry and briar characters. Delicious with gnocchi and pine mushrooms.
It probably comes as no surprise that I love Pinot Noir, after all we are surrounded by it. At the moment I’m enjoying our 2010 Estate Grown Pinot Noir. I love nothing better then sitting out on our back deck after a long day at the winery with a glass of wine in hand and letting the day wash over me.
