Wine with old family values. Yes, that’s fine. I bring you a wine company that’s so rich in history. What is this company you may ask? It’s JIM BERRY Wines. This vineyard is located in Dulwich, Australia. I know I have not done any wines from Australian but this one is sure to fill your senses. In 1944 Jim Barry commenced his wine career by studying wine science (Oenology) at Roseworthy Agricultural College, where he learned his unique way of wine-making. Jim did his first vintage in 1945 while still doing his study for his Oenology diploma.
Now onto the wine
I have two special wines to show you today. One red, and one white.
Their Lodge Hill’ Shiraz, 2012, has flavors of ripe cherry and blackberry with a hint of spicy pepper. With very little tannins it makes this a very smooth wine.
I would pair this wine with a spicy Asian disk or a nice big steak,
Now onto my pick; The Lodge Hill’ Dry Riesling 2013
This refreshing white wine is perfect for an outside bar b q or day by the pool. Don’t let this wine fool you. It’s full of flavor such as pink grapefruit, ginger and a hint of green apple. With a nice green coloring and good natural acidity,
I would pair this wine with fruit salad or salmon.
So grab your friends and enjoy some wine from down under!
