1-20-14 Word On Wine Review 2 From Down Under!

One would think from this title that Mary and I are reviewing wines from Australia…Actually we are reviewing a red from South Africa and a white from New Zealand!

1)2012 The Wolftrap!  This South African red blend was made up of Syrah, Mouvedre and Viognier!  Rough and Ready if you’re ready for it!  $12…A great mid week dinner wine.

Here is the website link…   http://www.boekenhoutskloof.co.za/front                 Enjoy!

2)2012 Fairhall Downs Sauvignon Blanc.  $16.  This is a definite winner as are so many of the Marlborough SB’s.  Great tropical fruit and great acidity.  Nice color…simply a pleasure.  Here’s a link to Wine Searcher so you can see the bottle.
