It occurred to me, that a few wines from yesteryear (but not necessarily) have left their mark on me!!
Petaluma Bag in a Box (yes, you heard right!!) Chardonnay, that was so true to the varietal but was wonderfully tasty and as cheap as the B-in-a-B implies. Bought in Australia
Reynella Basket Pressed Cabernet Sauvignon. The first wine that I tasted that reeked of blackcurrants, howled of the humidor and improbably a hint of eucalyptus was to be discerned. And it just HAD TO BE, an Aussie. Never to be forgotten.
Bortoli Noble One. My half bottle turned out to be the first vintage, it seemed like my taste buds had alighted an Atlas rocket, without destination. This wine was called the Chateau d’Yquem of Aussie, and to this day - I can believe it. A legend DownUnder!!
These are a few of my Australian offerings, I am sure Members have some comparable or Better to share!!
