I’d like to introduce guest Taster, Andy Brown.
Di and I first found this wine in Edmonton when we lived in Athabasca – so some 20 years ago. We were attracted to it as it’s a McLaren Vale wine and those wineries produce good reds.
It’s a medium red, bit like a Merlot. It’s a nice change from Shiraz and Cab Sav, but not quite right for red meat like beef or lamb. Was okay with the sausages.
But that’s based on my South Australian taste buds, which as you know can vary from others, even Hunter Valley.
This one I bought at Cascadia here in Courtenay for $31.49. A bit rich actually and not quite worth that money. Likely at that price since it’s a 2016 vintage.
Ed: It’s also available at the BC Liquor Stores
Combined this with a couple of Hertel’s British Bangers, some artichokes and peas and carrots. Pretty good, but would have been better with mashed spuds.
