2015 Domaine Dawnelle Pinot d’Or

I tried the 2016 vintage of this wine recently and it was wine that intrigued me so much I had to check out this one.  For me, it was a year older and a year wiser.  Take from that what … Continue reading

You may have noticed that we here in the Peters household have been indulging in a few Rosé wines of late.  And why wouldn’t we?!  There are so many quality versions out there and with the weather so summer-sational of late,  … Continue reading

Recently I was lucky enough to steward at a capital city wine show.  I was blown away by the amount of Rosés entered.  If my memory serves me correctly there were 75 wines.  Think of a red grape variety and it … Continue reading

2017 Pig in the House Organic/Biodynamic Chardonnay

If someone said to me, “When you’re in New South Wales, make sure you visit Cowra.  There’s some nice wines coming out of there,” it would be met with a rather quizzical look and a raised eyebrow.  Hold that thought. … Continue reading
