You say you want a revolution…how about a rose coloured one?
Today (10 November) is Rosé Revolution day! And it’s all about celebrating the drier more ‘grown-up’ style of rosé wine. Accordingly, I thought it was high time I reviewed a couple of pink wines (I always forget to take notes when drinking rosé as it is usually imbibed in copious amounts with friends and share plates in the summer sun – very distracting).

Today, the 26th of May, is #Chardonnay Day in ‘Social Media Land’. I am not going to bother explaining this Twitter-borne concept here (after all I am hardly the expert; I only just learned about hashtags), however it does provide a good opportunity to post a bumper Chardy review.
What’s more, I am long overdue to report back on my recent(ish) trip to Margaret River in WA; one of the premium spots for Chardonnay in Australia. This region consistently produces finely crafted examples of the variety, with wines showing intense concentration of fruit and exceptional complexity, whilst retaining elegance and finesse.
Of course, this is a trite annotation, which seasoned wine slurpers and Chardy tragics have heard over and over. But, in the spirit of #Chardonnay Day (note how expertly I slipped the hashtag in there), I believe it is my duty to revisit a few of the gems I sampled in Margaret River and test this assertion.

Last night my wine tasting escapades lead me to “#gamay11”; a somewhat avant-garde tasting of the Gamay wines produced by Eldridge Estate in Mornington Peninsula.
It was lots of fun! Read more about it here →
