Victoria Wine

Victoria is a wine growing state in the South East part of Australia. Because of its diverse terroirs and micro-climates, many different styles of wine can be attributed to its regions, from sparkling to dry reds and whites to dessert wines known as “stickies.” The state capital Melbourne is the epicenter, with bustling restaurants and wine bars dedicated to local bottlings.

Victoria has six regions which in turn have many subregions:

Medium soft mouthfeel; minimal tannins with more black & white pepper, leather, and tobacco. Opens a bit more and then cherry plum. Though a bit thinner t... Read More

  • Brown Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Ok my wine club lapsed by accident but it never will again. This winery makes some of the best reds ever. They make my favorite Zinfandel but they also make an amazing Cab. It's full of notes of chocolate and coffee, ripe fruit, and balanced acidity. I can drink this as a cocktail or my favorite meal. Read More
