It's time to Woloomooloo. That's right, Mountfair's most decorated wine (Monticello and Governors Cup Gold) returns with the stunning 2008 vintage. As in year's past, it's mostly Petit Verdot, -- this year blended with Merlot (30%) and Cabernet Franc (10%). A long, hot, 2008 summer yielded exceptional fruit with big sugars and great balance -- and this Petit Verdot may be the richest we've harvested. The blend is a dark, brooding affair with a medley of violet hues, rich berry flavors and ends with a big long finish. Great with a grilled meat dish or try with football game chili.
Honoring a long standing tradition, we'll celebrate Fritz's latest concoction with The Wooloomooloo Release Party -- Saturday September 25th @ 3PM. Our house band, 'Stealin the Deal' will offer up a rollicking concoction of their own -- blending Rocky Jackson's soulful country croonings with Pat Craig's sizzling guitar work. Bring a picnic and enjoy the big mountain views from a blanket in the grass.
