Andy Williams and his wife Leeanne have taken the reigns at Hidden Creek. The cellar door has been reinvigorated with a new menu. 2017 was the first vintage with Andy in the winery flying solo after numerous winemaking roles elsewhere. This Gewurz is the first for Hidden Creek and is the first Andy has made as well.

Get outside in the sunshine and embrace your lazy weekend with a glass of this in hand. I say this as rain taps on the roof. Sunshine isn't far away no less.
So approachable. So tasty.
Grenache worth sinking your teeth into. Dense, pools of serenity engulf the mouth.
The back label says, "At a time when Grenache was considered unfashionable, Chester acquired many old bush vine, overgrown and abandoned vineyards." Grenache seems trendy again - one just took out the coveted Jimmy Watson Trophy for the first time - great to see. I love the variety.

My first look at Heslop Wines from Mudgee and I like what I see. Take a whiff and it's easy to get hooked. Well presented too - I do like the wax seal. A sexy touch.

If you only had 15 bucks to throw on the counter for a bottle of red, run to this hand over fist. It's a wine I've found in recent years to be one of the best value blends going around.
