We had a delicious lunch at LINDEN, with a free matched wine with each course & a port to finish, as well as a tasty well-informed humorous wine presentation.. As usual CRAB FARM was quirky & CJ PASK classy. Each year, since 2008, The Gimblett Gravels Winegrowers' Association has hired a Sydney-based Master of Wine to choose his top syrah & blended reds from a single vintage. Of the 6 syrah chosen from the 2018 Vintage Selection, 2 were from Smith & Sheth, We salivated over their excellent wines & appreciated a knowledgable & passionate presenter..PARITUA WINERY'S greatest strength is in their Bordeaux-style red wines. With the help of a high-tech digital sorting machine that photographs every berry, rejecting those with imperfections, Paritua can make good wines from vintages from which many would qual! Bob Campbell says that this stylish, modern winery is one to watch. After tasting their wines, we agree! We also had lunch & an axcellent tasting at BLACK BARN. Two more days on this trip & we'll be redoing the tour 15-18 October, so if you wish to come, get in touch!.
