We recently sipped on this LS Merchants 2019 Chenin Blanc from WA’s Margaret River region (Yallingup to be exact).

It is whole bunch pressed and fermented in 20% new 80% 3 year old barriques. Retailing for $30, we bought it as part of a Drink Chenin Day 6-pack last month.

I also very much love the label on this one. The artwork is by Aiden Lee Smith.

It’s a honey yellow shade with salty stonefruit and citrus aromas rising up from the glass. In the mouth it’s 100% refreshing and incredibly easy to consume. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!

Schloss Vollrads Estate 2015 Riesling

So we used up the last of my pre-prepared meals from the freezer this week. I made a stash of meals before baby TC came along and now I wish I’d made more! One of my favourite meals to make bulk of is the butter chicken recipe from the Ripe Deli cookbook. It’s delicious and reheats so well + it goes exceptionally well with Riesling.
