Pinot and chocolate, two of my favourite things for a night in! I received this new release Bird on a Wire sample from winemaker, Caroline Mooney (thank you) recently. There were only 133 dozen cases produced, so I feel privileged to be one of the lucky ones to taste it.
Have you tried wine made from the Marsanne grape variety before? It’s a white grape variety synonymous with the Rhône Valley in France and it’s not the easiest grape to grow. Here in Australia, the Yarra Valley seems to have the right conditions to grow it well and this Bird on a Wire 2014 Marsanne…
Rosé and platters… ahhh I love the combo! This pretty little Rosé comes from Victoria’s Yarra Valley and it’s made from 100% handpicked, whole bunch pressed Pinot Noir. They’ve even given it the ‘traditional’ treatment and stomped the grapes by foot!
Happy International Chardonnay Day wine lovers! We had a warm up with this newly released 2016 Bird on a Wire Chardonnay from the Yarra Valley last night. A big thank you to winemaker Caroline Mooney for sending over this sample for me to try.
