Mr Spittoon and I kicked off the weekend with this #thetcwineclub Palmetto Wine Co Blanc de Blancs Sparkling from SA’s Barossa Valley and it definitely set a great time for the weekend.
We had it with some homemade corn fritters done on the bbq with the Vino Bites Tequila Salsa that came in this month’s wine club box (such delicious salsa!!), sausage rolls and salad. It really complemented the goat’s cheese in the salad.
The reason I picked this bubbles is that it’s not made from your typical sparkling wine grapes. This is actually the second fizz I’ve had made from the Petit Meslier grape variety this month and I’m digging it! Continue reading →

On our recent trip to Sydney for Wine Island, we knew it was going to be a weekend all good wine & food. I am so glad we made it to Loluk Bistro in Surry Hills as this authentic French restaurant hit the nail on the head for an absolutely delicious Saturday lunch.
The lovely team from the Australian Good Food Guide recommended that we check out Loluk and they kindly teed us up with a complimentary lunch. Thank you very much AGFG and the Loluk team for looking after us so well. Especially considering we were sweating like there was no tomorrow from the humidity. The wine couldn’t get down my throat fast enough ;) Continue reading →
Hello Alkoomi Wines 2017 Victrix Chardonnay, I love you!
This was another gem Naomi brought with her to Sydney for us to enjoy and boy it’s a goodie.
This icon range from Alkoomi are all named after types of trees which can be found on their property in Frankland River in WA’s Great Southern Wine Region. This beauty is named after the Australian Eucalyptus Victrix.
