A group of us headed for after work drinks out at Mount Majura Vineyard. As a part of the Fireside Festival, they were doing a wine tasting/tapas do with $5 serves of wine with accompanying tapas taste.
I started with the Manzanllia Filla, which is a dry Sherry… much more pleasant than my cheap cooking sherry! Rish had the Mount Majura 2008 Chardonnay ($21/bottle) with Paprika Almonds. I had a small sip and could taste the oak and skipped onto the reds ;)
My second wine was the 2008 Graciano ($21/bottle), and it was definitely my favourite. I’ll prbably have to pick up a bottle of this to take for Rish’s dad next time we head to Newcastle (?father’s day) as he’s always asking what Canberra region wines are like!
My second red was the 2008 “TSG”, above, which the man who served me said was his favourite. Maybe I was put off my the fritata, or the blend, but it didn’t rate as high for me ;) This is also $21 per bottle.
Someone needs to explain the whole prosciutto and rockmelon thing to us… I just don’t get it. Maybe it’s that I’m not really a fan of rockmelon? Or that the texture of squishy prosciutto like this is a little odd? Never mind, the 2009 Tempranillo ($35/bottle) went down quite well ;)
What’s your favourite wine? And if you’re in Canberra, what other wineries do I need to visit ASAP? :)
