95 Points of JOSEPH Sparkling Red from Australian Wine Review

2014 starts with a bang for our JOSEPH Sparkling Red with this lovely write up from Andrew Graham of Australian Wine Review:

'Intriguing as ever.

This 2013 disgorgement too is a high achiever, the final wine as complex and complete as you could ask for, with a little dose of nearly everything.

It smells principally of rich and decadent McLaren Vale Shiraz, all ripe and expansive choc plum richness. Yet over the top there is morethan a hint of the dusty, baked earth decay of 40 year old old Aussie red, suitably topped off with some of cassis and formic of Moda for balance, ultimately producing a wine that smells young and old all at once.'

We hope you enjoyed a bottle of this very special fizz over the festive period!

Ciao,

The Primo Team

Recipe of the Month - Tuscan Pork Skewers

Tuscan Pork Skewers - Serves 10


Ingredients

1000 g Pork Scotch Fillet diced into cubes
Roasted Fennel Seeds
1 Bunch of Parsley
1 Chili
2 Lemons
Cracked Pepper
JOSEPH Extra Virgin Olive Oil
10 Wooden skewers soaked in water

Directions

Blend the fennel seeds, pepper, chili and parsley in a food processor to make a dry mix. Marinade the pork cubes by rubbing them in the dry mix, adding a little JOSEPH Olive Oil then leaving them in the fridge overnight in a covered bowl.

Spear the marinaded pork cubes onto wooden skewers that have been pre-soaked in water (so they won't burn on the grill). Allow approximately 100g of meat per skewer. Grill the skewers over charcoal for the best flavour. Dress with a sprinkle of lemon zest, a squeeze of lemon juice and a drizzle of JOSEPH Extra Virgin Olive Oil and serve.

Many thanks to our friend Rob at La Dolce Vita Catering and Events for this delicious recipe.

Moda & Merlesco in the Hot 100 Wines

We love this description of our 2011 JOSEPH Moda:

'A velvet glove on an iron fist. A red wine that’s got game and is perhaps ideally suited to eating game. A savoury style with an underlying sweet cherry and cranberry nuance. Icing on a mud cake. Delish.'

You can buy both our 'hot' wines online - click here, buy now and taste for yourself
