A few wines to try?

Posted in Uncategorized on 29/11/2010 by gayparis

I haven’t updated this in a while and I was just having a glass of wine and thought maybe I should post something about wines. Here’s 4 that I’ve tried recently that I thought were good and aren’t on the too-expensive side.

Oldbury Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2010 – From down my way at Southern Highlands Wines. This was one of two Sauv’s that won a gold medal at the Hong Kong International Wine & Spirit comp – The other was from Marlborough, NZ which is a given.

Mount Michael Sauvignon Blanc 2010 – Everyone drinks Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough now, but this one is real good.

Barwick Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 – From Western Australia, their White Label range. Nice tannins, a little oaky – Great with a BBQ.

Tyrone Estate 3 Generations Shiraz 2007 – I love shiraz, and this is a really smooth, full bodied one. Well rounded with a long finish. Good value.

Anyway, back to mine.
Yessssss.

Look, normally, I do whatever I feel like, but apparently giving real information instead of excellent stories is important too. Fucking loud mouthed American overlord. Doesn’t she know that a pimp gotta have some respect for their bottom bitch? Shit.
I’d just like to clear a few things up before we get down to this PR thing – Yes, we’re opening, but that is because Smokin’ D has to get back to his country shack early to pray for a beard.
We’re more likely to take your womanfolk than Torch Le Monde.
That is all for now.
