Lindsay’s Pick: St. Hallet Poacher’s White Blend, 2013 – $13.99
This Australian white has bright citrus fruit with a crisp finish. The Sauvignon Blanc offers a delicious lemon flavor, while the Semillon and Riesling blended in add aromatic complexity on the nose. Delicious and juicy white!
Lindsay’s Pick: Yalumba Vermentino, 2011 – $13.99
The Aussies do a great job with this traditionally Italian grape! A delightful white with aromas of lemongrass. Full of delicious, juicy lime citrus fruit flavors. Try with shrimp tacos!
Scott’s Pick: Brokenwood Semillon, 2013 – $19.99
A truly iconic Australian classic! Brimming with orange zest and green herbal aromatics; closes with firm length and acidity.
Scott’s Pick: Tournon Shiraz by M. Chapoutier, 2012 – $16.99
Shiraz from Victoria is always firm in style, and has more crispness than more famous parts of Australia. This is deeply blueberry-scented, but there’s nice acid and tannin for structure. Tournon the charm!
John’s Pick: Torbreck Woodcutter’s Shiraz, 2012 – $23.99
A rich and complex Barossa red, showing concentrated blackberry with dabs of cassis, anise, and smoke. A big, serious wine at a not too serious price. Pair it with flavorful grilled meats.
