After the rugby, thank goodness for Margaret River! 


The Wallabies certainly did their best last weekend to promote the virtues of Aussie Rules. Looks like the “X Factor” should be left to Channel 10 on a Sunday night! Apart from dismantling our rugby team, the Kiwis have also dominated Australia’s white wine market with their ubiquitous sauv blancs (some of which are very good, but many are quite ordinary). About two thirds of all white drunk in Australia comes from across the ditch - bit sad really when such a small country has the wood on us with the All Blacks as well as (nearly) all the Whites!
 
However Margaret River in the west (and the Adelaide region to a lesser extent) produce excellent versions, particularly those blended with semillon. These really can be outstanding and in the view of a lot of wine judges, are far superior to all but the top New Zealand whites. What is particularly good news is that so many of them are so well priced and this week we release a $12 beauty from the makers of Lakes Folly, the 2011 Whispering Woods Sauv Blanc.
 
Pirramimma, which is aboriginal for “the moon and the stars” was first planted in 1892 by Alexander Johnson and his grandson is now in charge – from here comes a delicious young chardonnay at only $12 a bottle. Finally, and continuing the white theme, this weeks Bargain of the Week is an easy drinking Sauv Blanc from the Pipers Brook stable, grown in South Australia and priced at only $9 a bottle.
