Cape Bouvard is one of the premier location of Australian winery and Bouvard brewery mandurah provide live music, catering from a wide spread menu and with a wine, beer, and café style food. One of the best things about Australia is the number of winemakers keen to experiment with new styles and lesser known grape varieties to produce something completely different. Decanter’s tasting team recommends five to try.
Australia built its international reputation on big, fruit-led wines. Think Barossa Shiraz and oaky Chardonnay.
More recently, there has been an upsurge in the popularity of cooler-climate wines, such as Eden Valley Riesling, Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir, or Chardonnay from Adelaide Hills.
Beyond this, and outside of the country’s benchmark wines, Australia is also a hotbed of experimentation. This has been going on for a while, but it’s only relatively recently that some of the results have found their way beyond Aussie shores.
If you can, get a flight to Adelaide and visit a few cellar doors. In the meantime, Decanter‘s tasting team has picked five wines to seek out – mostly available in the UK with a couple also on shop shelves in the US.
Cullen Wines, Mangan East Block 2013
Wine lovers will know Vanya Cullen’s Diana Madeleine Bordeaux blend, named after her mother, but here’s something a little different. This 58% Petit Verdot, 48% Malbec comes from the next-door vineyard owned by Cullen’s brother Rick and sister-in-law Bettina Mangan and is also farmed biodynamically. The fruit is basket-pressed before spending 17 months in French oak, and although it needs time for the sweet oak to integrate, it shows great density, with fine, grippy tannins, a silky mouthfeel and vibrant flavours of mulberry, violets, ink and cocoa.
