Christmas Mix

It seemed a good idea last year.

Here is this year's Christmas mix, not an Australian theme this time but rather, slightly raunchy. Enjoy. If you want to add your favourite, let me know,

Never a good idea to text when drunk

Watch carefully, Malcolm has a guest performance

The Story of the Wine: From grape varieties with unpronounceable names to low intervention and preservative free wines, to labels inspired by LP record covers, the Australian wine industry is in flux and all this in a bid to capture the imaginations of consumers not only at home but overseas.
Varieties such as Fiano, Aglianico, Negroamaro, Nero d Avola, Greco, and even the esoteric Greek variety Assyrtiko are now in the winemaker’s armoury as they plan to combat issues such as climate change and the growing inquisitive wine public.
While there are plenty of exciting wine varieties to play with, and we certainly have at Lethbridge, in 2016 we tried Fiano. This ancient grapevine (mentioned by Pliny) is described by Jancis Robinson as “rich, waxy, strongly flavoured, fashionable, age worthy.”
