A taste of Australia

I popped over to The Wine Cellar (Henderson Center, 3F) and met Garry Anderson, who is with both Auswine Alliance and Beijing GLP, which are representing Australian family-owned vineyards. Garry plans to open a few bottles of wine each Thursday afternoon from 4 to 7 for those who want to give them a try. Upcoming tastings will cover Little Wine Company on January 18 and Frog Rock on January 25. During my visit, we tried a Celestial Bay Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2006 from the Margaret River region in southwestern Australia. It had a tangy citrus nose and was fresh and zesty. We also had a Frog Rock Chardonnay 2004, which didn’t do much for me. For more information, contact Garry at 13552-274-667.
