First Drop Wines The Red One South Eastern Australia Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Barbera, Shiraz
It's summertime and the livin' is easy. I've got the grill primed and want something that would go with corn on the cob and a smokey slab of ribs. We all know that the Aussie's love their "barbi", so I picked up a bottle of the 2009 Red One from First Drop Wines. Let's see if it fits the bill.
You can find this week's pick in the Australian Wine isle of your local bottle shop for $9.99.
What Others Thought
While readers agreed that this was not the “typical Australian fare”, some found it to be an “unexpected surprise”. Those “tired of the same old shiraz blend” didn’t mind the “spicy notes” that others found “overwhelming”. “Not for the faint of heart” this red might just find a small but loyal following.
