I was talking to a wine rep (not related to Tyrrell's) about wine varieties making waves. Talk shifted to blends and he made the point, "No one drinks white blends anymore. Why waste your time with stuff like Chardonnay Semillon blends?" Funny how things unfold - this came across my table not too long after that conversation. He will be reading this and perhaps this is a good place for him and others to restart their relationship with Chardonnay Semillon blends.
Mornington Peninsula Pinot Gris - what's not to like? Such a beautiful drink and a great region for the variety. A delicious wine for your drinking pleasure.
I don't like Sauvignon Blanc as a general rule. Put it in the right hands and make an effort = great results. Wild fermentation in old oak is a great start.

Classy Chardonnay. I'm sure I've said recently that the wines coming from Singlefile are brimming with enthusiasm with the quality high - here we go again.

I was invited along to the Huntington Estate wine lunch on the weekend. Impressive food matched with well-crafted wines. This 2018 Semillon is hot off the press. A great wine to slurp on during warmer months, this is what I consider 'pool wine'.

A tribute to Angela Crema, mother of Mary Puglisi, the wife of Ballandean Estate founder Angelo Puglisi. Cool nights and cheese boards will warm the soul with a nip or two.
