The death of “Cellared in Canada,” plus magnums!



Picks of the Week:

“Black Bottle” Shiraz, from Australia.

Bonus: “The Wolftrap Red” blend of Syrah, Mourvedre and Viognier, from Boekenshoutskloof in South Africa.

 


Half Bottles



We start the show with half bottles – wines that come in a 375ml format. It means you get half as much but at half the price. So, maybe a way to try an expensive wine without breaking the bank (as long as you don’t mind having less wine)?

Half bottles make up the “Picks of the Week:”

•Red – Masi Campofiorin, a red blend from Italy, in the 375ml bottle.

•White – Kenall-Jackson Chardonnay, from California, in the 375ml

In this episode, we also discuss the Pedra Cancela “Dao” from Portugal (excellent), and the Cono Sur Bicicleta Viognier from Chile (mixed feelings).
