Taste of Western Australia

The Taste of W.A proved to be a great success, with some of the State’s premier wine producers turning up at Tompkins Park Function Centre to show off their wares.
The wines on offer included Amberley Estate, Chalice Bridge, Evans and Tate, Houghtons, Xanadu, and many more.
My personal favourite on the night was definitely a sweet red from Catching Thieves Winery in Margaret River. The 2008 Catching Thieves Dolce is a delicious medium sweet and soft ┬áred, suitable for any occasion. Catching Thieves falls under the McWilliam’s Wine Group (as does Evans and Tate), and they seem to be doing great things at the moment; the Evans and Tate Zamphier Sparkling (NV)was another well recieved drop, semi-sweet and not too dry – a great sparkling for bbq’s!
Finally, Chalice Bridge Estate deserve an honourable mention for their 2008 Single Vineyard Shiraz, which was recently awarded as being Australia’s second best Shiraz.
A massive thank you to all the wineries that made the event a success, and of course thanks to the organisers from the Wine Industry Association of Western Australia.
