Thursday 9th March 2006When in Rhone
This is my first entry for Wine
Embarrassingly I’m very much a wine novice, although I'm hoping to become a lot more knowledgeable. Unfortunately though, I also have a limited budget to spend on wine, therefore I often stick to Cuisine Magazine’s recommendations for a safe bet. To me there’s nothing worse than forking out for a bottle and not being able to finish it.
So when Jathan of winexpression.com announced this months theme, "When in Rhone" and the list of varietals associated with the Rhone, I went straight to the lastest copy Cuisine. South Australia’s d’Arenberg The Stump Jump 2004 ‘jumped out’ (yes, I hear you all groan!), so off to the store I went. Described as a "Well worth discovering Rhone Valley-style blend of Grenache (50%), Shiraz and Mourvèdre" and given 4 stars.
We paid NZ$17 at the local New World, and took the following notes.
