Love the Wine You’re With Feature #3
Australia is facing an unprecedented national crisis, as bushfires tear through the country. We are raising awareness for how you can help by featuring Tournon from Victoria, Australia as our wine of the week. News of the entire 2020 vintage of Australian wine being lost is tragic, however, the country has lost more than just crops. It has lost lives, wildlife, farms, land, homes and so much more. Please consider donating to one of these tax-deductible charities :Salvation Army Australia, Red Cross, Global Giving, RSPCA, World Wildlife Fund, GoFundMe, Direct Relief, Foodbank, AirBnB, NSW Rural Fire Service, and many more. And keep drinking Australian wine!
2017 Tournon Mathilda Shiraz by Michel Chapoutier, Victoria, Australia
Brilliant, dark ruby color, with aromas of black fruit, blackpepper and hints of roasted meat, black olive and raspberry. The palate is supple yet greedy with silky and elegant tannins. A New World sense of blueberry and blackberry fruit that’s ripe without being sweet yet dry and savory on the softly dusty finish. Recommended food pairing: charcuterie, smoked and grilled meats.
