Video Round-Up: A broken bottle of Victoria Chardonnay

Video One: Tallarook Chardonnay 2006
Mike decided to play basketball with the Tallarook before shooting this video. A handsome hole in the bottom of the bottle shows the damage, but we managed to salvage around a third of its contents. This is the kind of Chardonnay that made Australia famous before the cheap, commercial stuff landed on our shores in the early 90’s. An ’06 drinking seriously well, even over the next year or two. A must watch and a must try.

Video Two: Outrider Merlot Cabernet Shiraz 2008
Our only red tasted this week is an Aussie blend which isn’t trying to be just another jammy fruit bomb taking up space on the supermarket shelves. It very much has a style and personality of its own.
Video Three: Domaine du Chateau d’Eau Chardonnay 2007
A Chardonnay that’s unashamedly Chardonnay… if that makes sense. This range of wines goes to show that organic doesn’t need to mean a few quid extra for the sake of it. Buy 5 get one free.
Video Four: Long Neck Chenin Blanc 2008
A lively South African white that’s starting to show that it’s got more in its locker than just refreshing green apple aromas. A pretty label and a fantastic summer sipper from the Western Cape. 20% off during May.
Video Five: Pascal Bouchard Chablis 2007
Bouchard’s Chablis is as much bought by the single bottle as it is by the case. It’s got everything you could want in a white Burgundy at this price and there is easily another couple of years drinking in this vintage.
