One of the top awards for an Australia wine went to Ben Glaetzer's Anaperenna, pictured, from Barossa Valley
NOT a lot of people know that the Barossa Valley
, the historic centre of Australia's wine industry, was born of a spelling mistake.
It's a lovely, intensely f lavoursome wine made - in a collaboration with the well-known McGuigan winemakers and Tesco's own master of wine Phil Reedman - from 'mature' vines in Australia's Barossa Valley
It's approximately an hour's drive to the Barossa Valley
from Adelaide home to the infamous Jacobs Creek!
Relishes and chutneys add interest to salads, cheeses and charcuterie, but what about wild lime and native mint chutney hand-made in the Barossa valley
and beautiful, smoky stuff, punchy red capsicum onion marmalade, or tathra eggplant onion marmalade.
From Australia's Barossa Valley
, this blend of semillon/chardonnay is a bright lime gold and has a lime/grapefruit edge.
Moving to the Barossa Valley
in Australia, a region that prides itself on its Rhone style of wines, the LANGMEIL THREE GARDENS SHIRAZ GRENACHE MOURVEDRE 2006 (RRP pounds 12.99, www.everywine.co.uk) is just that.
FOR pounds 6.99, Sainsbury's carries St Hallett, Gamekeeper's Reserve, Barossa Valley
, South Australia, 2007.
I'M fascinated and often amazed by some of the flavours that people claim to detect in wine.Tash Mooney thinks that her Fox Gordon 2006 'Eight Uncles' Shiraz from the Barossa Valley
, "has lashings of mulberry and sarsaparilla."
in South Australia, for some wine tasting!
