Sommelier’s Choice – 6 Wines
In support of Australia’s wine industry, a selection of six favourites from the Lake House Cellar selected by our Sommelier, Claude.
Rockford Eden Valley, Riesling 2019 , Eden Valley, S.A.
A fresh, crisp and age worthy gift to the Riesling world from an iconic winery. A kingfish ceviche is the perfect match.
Wilimee, Chardonnay 2019, Macedon Ranges, Vic
A demonstration of precision and elegance from a high vineyard in the heart of the Macedon Ranges. Have it with a poached Tassie Ocean trout and beurre blanc.
Bertrand Bespoke Vin Gris, 2020, Heathcote, Vic
This is a rose like no other, a blend of Mourvedre and Nebbiolo with a hint of Sauvignon Blanc, pale and textural, try it with an anchovy, olive and lemon pasta dish!
Ten Minutes by Tractor Wallis, Pinot noir 2018, Mornington Peninsula, Vic
It has a delicately haunting bouquet of fresh red berries and peony. Glazed duck breast and cherry sauce… you only have to wait for the cherries to be in season!
BK Sparks Grenache, 2014, Adelaide Hills, S.A.
An artisan wine made with passion and craft that will remind you how great Aussie Grenache can be. Slow cooked joints of lamb or beef please.
Koerner Classico, Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Clare Valley, S.A.
A micro production made by the Koerner brothers, loaded with mint and cassis scents. A Porterhouse seared on the coal, that’s all you need with it.
