A Lazy Saturday Afternoon Wine Tasting

Showery weather prevailed this weekend and what better way to while away a lazy Saturday afternoon than with a trip to Yallingup and a spot of wine and olive oil tasting. The Growers Handcrafted Wines provided us with a unique wine tasting experience that included a discussion with the actual wine maker. We spent a pleasant hour or so conversing with this very knowledgeable and talented wine maker whilst we sampled a great many of the wines.

We were particularly taken with the multiple award winning The Growers’ Riesling 2004, the grapes sourced from the Frankland River region of Western Australia. This wine is made with extra special care – the grapes hand harvested from the Powderbark Ridge vineyard and the results of this harvest are a delicious dry style Riesling.  We thank viticulturist Philip May for his sharing his passion and expertise with us.

We also sampled and bought 4 litres of EVO – extra virgin olive oil – produced in the same region. 🙂
