Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

2013 Mollydooker (Australia) "The Violinist" Verdelho, $20

From the highly acclaimed winery primarily known for its Syrah and very technical viniculture practices, this is one of two bottles named for the winemakers children.  Another factoid is Mollydooker is a term for left-handed.

Very good wine.  Drinks well alone and pairs well with food.  However, for me I am not enamored with the really high alcohol wines, as is a hallmark of Mollydooker.  The Violinist comes in at 16% alcohol which tastes a bit heavy handed in the balance. That said, I would still happily enjoy a bottle again. 

2012-2013 Chateau Ste Michelle (Washington) Columbia River wines, $7

2012 Bouchard Aine & Fils Bourgogne (French) Pinot Noir
