This month happens to be Aussie Wine Month, so I’ve chosen to dedicate this month’s postings to this theme, beginning with last week’s review.
Outside of this, I have of course been practising what I preach by attending wine tastings (coupled with the occasional oyster).
It’s a great opportunity to brush up on your knowledge and experience of Australian wines beyond just textbook study and theory.
