A lot of the wine that passes over these lips is from – or made in – McLaren Vale.

A lot of that, is from McLaren Vale Winemakers, where Mr Wino works and I go to play on weekends. 

It seems that it has been a week of Pinots, with two other Pinots consumed ravenously from the Yarra Valley, a Yerring Station and TarraWarra


Then to buck the trend, we went with a couple of blends, the Gemtree Phantom and a Broombee Shiraz Cab for our “Shiraz Challenge”.

Back to the Pinot. 

This one, while made in the Vale by the lovely Jess Hardy, is from Adelaide Hills fruit.

Well Looky Here

Mid dark, with a clear and bright crimson rim.

Sniff Sniff

Dark fruit, freshly tilled earth. 

Sip Sip

Fuller bodied than it’s Victorian counterparts.

Dark fruited so the smokiness of the fish doesn’t overwhelm the wine, and likewise, the medium body of the wine matched well to the medium body of the dish.
