Wine Blogging Weds #76: Barossa Boomerang?
This month’s Wine Blogging Wednesday invites participants to revisit wines from the Barossa region in Australia. In response, I wrote about The Grateful Palate Imports which did a lot to call attention to Australian wines, especially those from the Barossa which is winemaker Chris Ringland’s favorite place to grow and make wine.
Within the Barossa, he is especially fond of the Ebenezer Road area, and in 2008, when Grateful Palate founder Dan Philips and winemaker Chris Ringland produced and released a 2006 shiraz for R wines, I was one of the first to get a sample bottle and to review it.
For Wine Blogging Wednesday #76 –the Barossa Boomerang, I revisited this wine and the story about how I almost came to work for Grateful Palate. I also taste and review R wine’s 2005 Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon.
PS BTW, I did not get an invitation to go with Problogger Darren Rowse to Queensland Australia (I hear the wine isn’t as good as in Barossa anyway…). My schedule is open if you want to invite me somewhere on an adventure– to travel, to taste wine, and to write between May 18 and June 18, 2012!
