Western Australia is the largest independent state and wine region within Australia, and the second largest in the world. It covers roughly 1000 square miles in any direction. Due to its size, it boasts quite the array of climate and topographical growing conditions.

Since a good portion of the state is very hot and humid, the regions tend to cluster around the south western areas where the weather is cooler and more temperate. Near the state capital Perth there is the Swan District, Perth Hills and Peel. Around the south coast it ranges from  Pemberton to Albany. And along the cool southern end of Geographe Bay (Margaret River and Geographe), with the inland Blackwood Valley.

The regions within Western Australia are:

    * Great Southern: the largest, best known for cool climate Riesling and Pinot Noir. It is further divided into the subregions Albany, Denmark, Frankland River, Mount Barker and Porungurup.
    * Manjimup: along the Blackwood River, the continental Read more »

  • Hi Ed, I'm guessing you mean the Seppelt tawny port produced by Seppeltsfield which is the winery from the Barossa Valley South Australia. While often regarded as the same entity, which is true from a business perspective, I do not due to their forked origins. Seppeltsfield was founded in 1851, while The Best Western winery was founded in 1865.T... Read More

    ~AUD$16. This ones got a bit of age on it, although youre very unlikely to pick it out. The current vintage is 2012. Very pale yellow tinge, fruit comes largely from the Rosetta and Hayview vineyards around Mt Barker, with 15% from the International Hill vineyards in the Frankland River region. These vines are irrigated, so given the dry growing... Read More

  • Emark - they take the cocoa beans and ferment or "ripen" them and the grind them really slowly for a long long time. They eventually liquify into a thick mass. Then you have what one might call "baking" chocolate.Cocoa butter is in high demand for make-up, so producers take the fat out and then replace it with some cheap fat like palm kernel oil...

    Wine review by knalselder

  • I'm not sure how much Australian sparkling wine gets sold in the USA. Wouldn't blame you if your second choice was prosecco or cava, right after champagne. But many Australian wine makers have spent time working vintage in both Champagne and in Italy, so rest assured we're certainly no slack in terms of the technical skill to make sparkling wine...

  • Mark, you should be able to find chocolate by Madecasse. They're a company operating out of Brooklyn that manufactures Madagascan chocolate. They've got a good solid range of chocolates. It's fun tasting the step up in weight and depth as you go from milk choc to 30-40% range to the 70%. 100% is simply insane though, like sucking a river pebble.... Read More

  • The cool/fun thing about chocolate is that it is much like wine.  You have varieties of cocoa plants, earth rain, wind, then you have the chocolate maker's decisions such as which beans, how ripe, how process them, etc...... Read More
