Tony Love's Top 100 - Whistler Wines

Another big congratulations to Whistler Wines!  The 2010 Hubert Irving was selected as one of the top red wines under $25 in the annual Advertiser Top 100.  Fantastic red to see out a very cold, wet winter! 

Whistler -- 2010 Hubert Irving

Baross a Valley, SA

A quirky estate blend from Barossa's Marananga district combining 30 per cent mourvedre, 30 per cent merlot and 25 per cent grenache, creating a rich, spicy-delicious, slightly wild and woolly, ripe- fruited earthily undertoned wine with juice, a grip and a certain hip vibe to it.

Tony Love's Top 100 - The Pawn El Desperado Rose

Congratulations to the team at The Pawn Winery! The El Desperado Rose was chosen by Tony Love for the Adelaide Advertiser's Top 100 wines - one of only two roses chosen for the annual edition.  Well deserved recognition for a wine we adore! 

 

The Pawn Wine Co - 2012 El Desperado

Adelaide Hills, SA

Firstly, the tilt-and-reveal label. Lots of fun. Then pale, pale salmon tones state its stylistic intentions. Crunchy, delicate and fresh, all Mediterranean afternoon light, with subtle fragrance from its tempranillo and sangiovese duet given extra joys with its crisp strawberry-pith mouth feel.
