2014 Bream Creek Pinot Grigio

I’ve got to tell you, this is quite a different version of this style.  I was going to say, expect the unexpected but everybody says that.  I’m going to say, don’t expect the expected. I like how there is a … Continue reading

2014 Rusty Mutt Rocky Ox GSM

Rusty Mutt?!  I’d never heard of it until I got onto Twitter and Instagram.  The good, no, great reviews that I kept reading were enough for me to finally bite the bullet and buy some. Now, the name.  You just … Continue reading

2015 Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Riesling

How good is Louisa Rose?!  That’s not really a question, it’s more a statement.  There aren’t many people around the industry, or even consumers for that matter, who don’t know this talented lady. I’m a big fan of Riesling (as … Continue reading

2014 Rymill The Dark Horse Cabernet Sauvignon
