I don’t like Mondays. I’m sure there are those that do but personally, I don’t know anyone that does. Maybe hospitality industry guys and gals because that is part of their weekend. However, for us Monday to Friday slaves to the norm, we try to make Sundays one of the best days of the week. With that in mind, we look for wines that are going to contribute to our “serene Sunday”, to help prepare us for the week ahead. Joe Warren of Serere Wines has kindly helped us out with this little beauty from the under-rated Beechworth district of Victoria.
It reeks of generosity and elegance from the aromas right through to the flavours. It has sort of a sweet/savoury nose with plenty of red fruits and a slight earthy character. The palate is fresh and generous yet in an understated and modest way. Red and black fruits seem to shimmy across the palate with ease, cool-climate pepper characters and a touch of herbs add a nice savoury touch as it seems to glide to the finish. Everything about this wine was easy and effortless. It seemed to do everything for me from the first sip. On their website, Serere is “to be bound, to be interwoven, to be entwined”. This is nicely ‘together’ already. Bravo Joe Warren!!
