It was a busy wine month for The Wine Pig this June, with the weather turning colder here in Sydney and a few special occasions on the cards.
We were lucky enough to have the opportunity for a few toddler-free wine afternoons and dinners out thanks to some overseas visitors/babysitters and ample of lazy afternoons in front of the fire with lots of red wine.
Meanwhile a few of our piglet family members on other sides of the globe have kept us updated with their wine travels.
Absolutely love our Riedel Grape wine glasses. They bring out the best in all our favorite wines... we just have to constantly fight the urge to fill it to the top!
It definitely feels like red wine weather today so we’ve cracked open a I Am George George the Wizard 2015 Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon! Medium bodied and deliciously smooth with heaps of dark juicy berries and plum and check out the epic label!!
Well that sounds like a challenge we can get behind.
Craggy Range’s delicious NZ version of such an iconic wine doesn’t disappoint. With big bright cherries in a medium-bodied but rich Pinot Noir is both savory and dry but excellently fruity.
11 June - Chiswick Restaurant, Sydney
Long lunch with the family at one of our favourite restaurants and with one of our favourite wines!! Cape Mentelle wines are absolutely divine. Perfect with Mr Matt Moran’s lamb.
We love Jim Barry’s fabulous wines - always so reliably fabulous!! Jim’s Garden 2016 Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich and hearty wine which is so super smooth. Perfect for these short winter days.
20 June - Spice Temple Restaurant, Sydney
It’s big and buttery alright, exactly as it says o the tin! Food Truck Wines 2016 Chardy for The Wine Pig this evening.
Taking to the skies with a Kilikanoon Killerman’s Run 2015 Shiraz.
What a treat! Schloss Reinhartshausen Hattenheimer’s Wisselbrunnen Riesling is distinctively juicy and rich but with lots of citrus, melon, peach and hints of currant and spice. We’re in love!
A Chenin Blanc in all perfection. The 2015 Domaine du Closel Savennieres Clos du Papillon is beautifully delicate with a subtle sweetness balanced by acidity and plenty of citrus and minerals. Totally refreshing.
#throwback Thursday to the homeland. Albury Estate’s classic cuvée is a fabulous sparkling wine grown in Britain’s Surrey Hills using the same method as Champagne. The Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir blend is wonderfully light and dry with elegant little bubbles and lovely citrus and red berry notes.
Friday #funday calls for a spot of Riesling and we love St John’s Road Peace of Eden Riesling is so dry, light and refreshing which has lovely mineral note with plenty of citrus
