Red Wine

Wolf Blass Grey Label Shiraz 2013, Mclaren Vale, Australia: A voluptuous, mouth-filling Australian Shiraz that tastes twice as expensive as it costs = bargain. The grapes are grown in the cool climate of the Mclaren Vale, which results in both freshness and complex depth of flavour. Winemaker Chris Hatcher manages the vineyards for his wines very intensely, even using overhead infrared mapping to determine which soils are best for which grapes, and how much to water or not.

Baron de Hoen Réserve Riesling 2018, Alsace Aoc, France: An extraordinary, juicy Alsatian white wine made from the classic Riesling grape. Dry and refreshing with notes of lime zest and lemon citrus. Pair with shellfish. Riesling food pairings: poached salmon with sautéed snap peas and snow peas, Thai seafood noodle salad, butternut squash risotto,.
