Our ever popular Humpers Port has won a bronze medal at the NSW small winemakers show last month. Of course winter is great port drinking weather and many of you have enjoyed a drop after dinner in recent months. If you have a bottle tucked away drag it out and have a look at it, you won’t be dissappointed. The solera just gets better and we keep it going having made another two barrels last vintage which we are very happy with. You can order a bottle on line with your next order just remember that to fit one bottle of port in a case you can only order 10 bottles of table wine.
Since the last newsletter the 9 course Canowindra Showcase degustation dinner has been held. We were pleased to see a couple of our regular newsletter customers attend. Toms Waterhole did one of the mains, winemaker Graham created a special spiral of spicy homemade pork sausage baked in our woodfired oven, which we transported in there for the evening, topped with Jan’s tomato relish. We served it with our Waterhole blend Cabernet shiraz merlot and from all reports it was rated one of the top food and wine matches of the night. Record sales of the wine have followed. There were 20 food and wine journos from all over the country there so we are waiting to see what publicity follows. There will definately be another one next year so get in early when bookings open. We will keep you posted. In the meantime to see some photos of the food and wines have a look at
