New South Wales Wine

New South Wales is state and wine-producing region within the Federal Commonwealth of Australia, and one of the first to be populated with and planted by European settlers. It boasts a wide array of regions and climates from the Shoal Haven coast to high altitude in the Great Dividing Range to warm inland along the Murrambidgee and Murray rivers (a.k.a. the “Big Rivers”) to cooler climates in the Swan Hill and Murray Darling, with each section excelling in their own varietals and styles.

Hunter Valley is the best known region in the state, regarded for its prized Semillon that was originally planted in the 1820s by James Busby, who is credited with being the “Father of Australian Wine.”

    Snoothrank:

    This has a huge purple tones with cranberry edges around the rim and although opaque, it has nice clarity.

Very smooth mouth... Read More

  • Tyrrell's Brokenback Shiraz 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Something of a pruney nose, but, also, an unfortunate sulphur thing that does not blow off. Very tart on entry. Some raisiny fruit. Then at the rear palate that sulphur thing, Not a terribly sophisticated wine. I'm actually OK with the tartness, but there is no way I could recommend this wine. Read More
