You may have missed out on the event itself but it is possible for you to relive the glory with this Aussie Wine Month Highlights six pack. I’ve put together a highlights list of the six wines I loved the most. Which I have to say is hard because all 12 were in there on merit. It is true that the hardest part of any event is what to include. Or more to the point, what to leave out. And having tasted a lot of GREAT Australian wine this year, it is almost impossible to actually decide.
This year we looked at two well established producers: Delatite and Merricks Estate. And a young gun who is at the start of the journey: Yelland & Papps. Each winery was represented by one of their winemakers who also happened to be a founder of the winery. They entertained and informed my guests, and their passion for their wines was obvious. David from Delatite, George from Merricks Estate and Michael from Yelland & Papps spent two hours pouring wine and chatting about what they love to do. And they say it is hard work! Pfft, hahaha.Read all about the event
