Join us tonight with John Grammer from Vision Wine Brands and we'll taste two excellent wines that offer serious value for their price. Graves is just a little south of the city of Bordeaux and is known for producing the best white wines in the region. Chateau Des Perligues is a great everyday style of white at $13.99. This blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc offers crisp refreshment with round citrus flavors and a little pith and peel.
Gemtree Bloodstone Shiraz is a good example of the "new" Australia style that we are seeing with biodynamic winemaking and a committment to balance rather than excess. The round, gregarious nature and easy ripe fruit exemplifies McLaren Vale and the finish gives way to typical Syrah/Shiraz savory elements like cola nut. At $19.99 it's a great price for a generous, full bodied wine.
