Wine Tasting – May meeting

Pat brought four delicious Australian whites to our May meeting, to show that not all Aussie white wine is vanilla-tasting chardonnay with oak chippings added.  Indeed the one Chardonnay which she brought would have matched a decent French Burgundy.  However the group gave the highest score to a bottle of Clare Valley Riesling bought from […]
