Lonely Grape TV # 147 Oenotria Vintners 2011 Cabernet

Who said you could not make a good Cabernet in 2011?  This one was so well looked after that the winemaker basically slept with the wine during vintage.

Lonely Grape TV#146 Wistmosa 2011 Shiraz

A new name on the McLaren Vale wine scene and based on this effort they will be around for quite a while.  This wine made the cut for the Scarce Earth Project Shiraz and is one of my favorites.

Two Gruners from the Geoff Hardy stable.  Same variety, same vineyard, same winemaker but 2 very different wines.

Lonely Grape TV Episode #139 Dowie Doole 2013 Vermentino

I was not expecting a Vermentino with oak treatment and lees stirring.  I was also not expecting such a complex and refreshing wine that just screams out for grilled sardines.
