4-21-14 Word On Wine 2 Aussies!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | Comments Off on 4-21-14 Word On Wine 2 Aussies!

This week Word On Wine is from Down Under and we are from the east and west of the country.  Mary and I actually tasted these wines together at our home grown wine tasting event!

1)2012 Frisk Prickly Riesling!  $10.  Victoria, Australia!  What could be bad about this?  Simple elegant inexpensive slightly sweet and slightly sparkling.  Buy with your eyes closed.

2)2012 Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon.  Cape Mentelle is at the extreme south west of Australia…making it pretty darn southwest!  It was a thrill to taste wine from somewhere so remote.  We were expecting this to be opulent and it was lean!  When we opened it a bit too lean though it did mellow!

Check out our show!
