It’s no secret that Michael and I love some good wine in this house, so much in fact that we built in a small wine closet cellar in one of the rooms. And as we were drinking a bottle of an Australian blend last night, it occurred to me that I haven’t been sharing with you the wines we love. So Internet, I think I’m going to start listing them more often, or just often since I haven’t done it at all yet. I’m so generous with the world, sometimes I amaze myself.
My all time favoritist wine ever – Rocket Science – 2005 Proprietary Red – Caldwell Vineyards – California – $40.00 – it’s plush, big, bold and makes me think naughty things. You’ll love it too.
I have to say; Australians are damn good at blending wine. I’ve been drinking Australian wines for a while now and this cheapy one took me by surprise – 2005 Elderton Tantalus – Shiraz Cabernet Malbec Merlot – Barossa Valley – only $14.99. Honestly, I was expecting crap, but it turned out to be a delicious everyday table wine.
You want to know the other thing I love that a lot of Australian vineyards are doing? Screw tops. BEST. IDEA. EVER.
