Samanatha Tomkins just loves comparing classic wines and gets plenty of practice on her travels.
She owns the Jews House Resaurant with partner Gavin Aitkenhead and trips abroad tend to have a touch of the Busman’s Holiday about them. Bewlow Samantha shares just a little of the knowledge gleaned on a recent wine trip to Australia.
I have been in love with Australian reds since we got the restaurant in 2006. It was the only non-French wine in our cellar at the time. Now 14 years later, our wine list is reflective of our love for travelling, food and wine.
I love French wines but do believe you can get better value further afield. On our recent trip I compared two classic French grapes that have been grown in Southern Australia. From the light reds to the knife and fork ones, I have been enjoying them all. The 2004 Fox Creek was up for comparison against my all-time favourite 1999 Park First Growth. It did well! The 2004 Fox Creek is 100% Shiraz. I have always loved my Cabernet Sauvignon but the Mclaren Vale has opened my eyes to Shriaz. Known as Syrah in France, it’s such a versatile grape. From softer, fruity reds to deep, dark powerful ones. Drop down further in Australia and you have coonawarra, full of Cabernet Sauvignon, again known as the Bordeaux grape but South Australia has created a wonderful balance of rich reds that doesn’t break the bank.
While I keep debating which grape I love more and from where, why not compare Cabernet Sauignon and Shiraz from Australia and see if you agree with me on the value for money.
A few that are worth a try:
Fox Creek Shiraz, Reynella Basket Pressed Shiraz, Kay Brothers Block 6 Shiraz
Two hands, Cabernet Sauvignon Wynns Cabernet Sauvignon Park Coonawarra, Cabernet Sauvignon
