Aussie Rules: The Henry Hudson Portfolio

5.30 PM - 7.30 PM

Aussie Rules.jpgA few years ago I was over in Australia on a wine trip (the fabulous Busby Travel tour led by Tim Wildman.) On these trips, I'm always asking if the wines are available stateside for me to buy and sell. I kept hearing "we're talking with Henry Hudson." Now living in New York, I couldn't get the image of a certain river out of my mind, but eventually I learned that indeed, there is an Australian importer named Henry Hudson - and he's bringing over some very good wines.

And we'll be pouring some of them today. On the tasting table, a perfect-for-summer Hunter Valley Semillon from Silkman, a tasty Pinot Gris, the always classic Balnaves from Coonawara, and the Syrahmi Demi Syrah from Heathcote. I love this line up. It's not the bleeding edge of cool that I'm often going on about, but an excellent quartet that illustrates how diverse Australian wine can be. These are some classic styles from classic regions that don't go over the top into caricature land. For example, you won't need a spoon to drink the Syrahmi or the Balnaves, but if you like your wines on the fuller side, you'll be a happy camper with these models of balance and complexity.

We're very excited to pour these wines for you, so come have a taste!

South African's in the City: The Return of Thinus

5.30 PM - 7.30 PM

south africans in the city.jpgThinus Kruger of the long, wild locks returns to pour his smoking good FRAM wines. He'll be pouring his excellent value Shiraz from the Swartland region and two wines from the up and coming Citrusdal Mountain region. Those two would be his Pinotage (and if you think you don't like Pinotage, you must try this one before you fully write of the grape) and his Chenin Blanc (which is in a very delicious place right now.) Thinus says he seeks out grapes from the 'Here Be Dragons' places on the wine map. These are my favorite places. So throw away your GPS and come make them your favorite places as well.
