Peter Bourne has selected our 2010 Primo & Co The Tuscan Shiraz Sangiovese for his feature on flying winemakers in this month's issue of Qantas inflight magazine The Australian Way.
In this 'tale of two hemispheres' Peter describes The Tuscan's 'generous spiced plum and fresh tobacco aromas set in a frame of mild-mannered tannins'. It is a really interesting look at flying winemakers and their influence on wine both here and overseas, check out the full article.
Louise Radman writes in SA Weekend magazine,
'Nothing beats the opulent black forest-inspired combination of dark chocolate and cherry. With robust character and cocoa flavours of its own, the iconic Australian sparkling red is a classic match to complement any chocolaty treat. This indulgent cuvee from JOSEPH stands head and shoulders above the rest. It's a rich and sumptuous wine with soft bubbles and a brooding core of black cherry and satsuma plum, cracked pepper and chocolate bullet notes. The opulent blend of museum vintages has savoury sweetness and serious layers of complexity to offset bittersweet dark chocolate tones.'
We think Louise is on to a winner with her chocolate pairing but for those seeking a savoury match for this wine we love it paired with Dina Grilli's Umbrian Pate.
A quick and easy seasonal recipe from our friends at Sydney Seafood School. Perfect for anyone currently enjoying the bounty of a lime tree in the garden. This dish partners beautifully with the refreshing citrus flavours of our La Biondina Colombard.
February's recipe of the month is one of Primo Estate winemaker and owner Joe Grilli’s all time favourite dishes from his parent’s home region of Ascoli Piceno in Le Marche on the central Adriatic coast of Italy. Joe says,
‘Dishes like this are EXACTLY why we make the JOSEPH d’Elena Pinot Grigio’.
We were thrilled to see our La Biondina Colombard featured in the Adelaide Hilton's FREE recipe ebook as the perfect pairing for this delicious dish. Click here to download the recipe pdf
