Down Under life continues pretty much as normal in a virtually COVID free continent, although just about the only thing that is free to enter or leave is wine! Our relationship with Australian wine is now so long standing that calling it new world feels distinctly quaint. Australia is a mature, progressive wine producer with well-defined regional classics that have stood the test of time, plus a hip new generation of experimenters with its finger on the pulse of the latest trends for minimal intervention winemaking and unusual grape varieties. Tonight we look at classic cabernet from the limestone rich soils of Coonawarra, a celebration of newly fashionable grenache, in a blend with syrah and mourvedre from an exciting new star, and a wine from the world's oldest marsanne vines, the iconic Tahbilk.
