Two Wines of the Week from South Eastern Australia
8th July 2011

Called into Wilson Wines this week and they suggested I do the tasting notes of a rather good Semillon Chardonnay and then compare them with theirs!!! Oooer!!    However not one to pass up the opportunity of  tasting wine I said I would give it ago.  Stand by Oz Clarke!! or indeed Gilly Goolden ( I loved her descriptions of the wine she tasted)
So here goes from the Amateur!!

Richmond Ridge Semillon Chardonnay from South Eastern Australia.
The scent was steely with a hint of green tea.  The taste was ripe peaches at first but then lingered into Greengages with a sharp dry ending.  I loved it.

This is what the experts say:

Pale lemon in colour – displays an abundance of tropical pineapple, melon and peach with subtle hints of fresh green tea.  It is a crisp and clean wine which is delicious with mustard roast chicken or lemon grilled Salmon.

So how did I do?

As we did two wines last week we thought we would do two this week so here is a rather yummy red:

Richmond Ridge Shiraz Cabinet
South East Australia

Tasting Notes from the experts:

Rich and full of flavour this vibrant wine has dark berry flavours, a generous palate with Blackcurrant ,raisin and subtle  chocolate flavours.
