3 RED & 3 WHITE UTILISING ALL THE COLOURS OF THE RAINBOW
Starting with the whites, Innocent Bystander Pinot Gris will be a familiar sight to anyone who has been to the Yarra Valley and enjoyed lunch and drinks at their state of the art restaraunt/winery in Healesville. Shaw & Smith Sauvignon Blanc from the Adelaide Hills is regularly cited as the best Savvy B in the world - even if you don't like the grape you'll like this!! From Western Australia, Plantagenet Riesling shows what the Aussies are capable of with incisive, clean, dry Riesling (Rizza is the Australian translation).
On the reds, Clonakilla Hilltops Shiraz from Canberra, is an incredible neo-classical Aussie style modelled on the Syrahs of Cote Rotie. Steeped in Irish tradition, the backstory is fascinating. Stephen Pannell, the maestro of the McLaren Value utilises Grenache, Shiraz and Touriga in his GST blend, Stephen was named Gourmet Traveller Wine maker of the year. Mitolo Jester Cabernet Sauvignon will change the way you think of this Bordeaux variety: it is bright, full and juicy. STSWine
