Shiraz Viognier

The Region:  Riverland, South Australia.  The cool waters of the Murray river act as a irrigator for this declared reseve, which lies north east of Adelaide.

The Wine: This is a inspired blend of the spicy, strong and tannins from red Shiraz grape and softened with the voluptuous Viogner white grape.  The perfect marriage of black cherry, smokey plum and black pepper from the Shiraz with hints of the juicy peach, ripe apricot and exotic jasmine from the Viognier.

The Food: This is a  wine that can be enjoyed with grilled lamb and apricot stuffing or a rack of barbecued ribs covered with a sticky sauce.  Grilled vegetable kebabs or portobello mushroom burgers are also excellent choices for this medium full-bodied, dry wine.



The Region:  Mosel Valley, Germany  The grapes are grown on the steep treacherous 700 ft slopes leading down to the Mosel river.  At 49 degrees northern latitude these grapes are at their northern most cultivation limits but the warm sunny southern facing slopes bring the Riesling grapes to their full potential.

The Wine: This off-dry, medium body German Riesling has notable flavors of lemon, fresh apples and limestone to give you the that tangy acidic kick with a  gentlke sweet finish.

The Food: This Riesling pairs great with schnitzel, white fish or a good book.



The Region:  Yakima Valley, Washington.  This is Washington's coolest and oldest wine region overlooked by Mount Adams.  The Yakima Valley is known for its agricultural abundance and is quickly becoming recognized as powerhouse in it's Bordeaux's grapes production.

The Wine: The blend of the finest Bordeaux's :  Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot each contribute their own individual strengths and characteristics to this fantastic wine.  Cabernet Sauvignon or "King Cab" brings firm tannis and complex aromas of cassis and black current.  Cabernet Franc adds red fruit undertones, spice and a peppery nose. Merlot rounds it out with plum and cherry characteristics for a softer, round body. 

The Food: This pairs beautifully with a beef stroganoff in the winter or a barbecued steak in the summer.  This medium-full bodied, dry wine is perfect on its own with a aged cheddar anytime of the year.
