This is the high season for trade tastings and as a result lots on new wines heading our way. This week’s crop include:

Piramimma Petit Verdot (Aus) – $36 – Highly recommended by one of our Australian residents on Bowen.

Joseph Burrier Macon-Solutré-Pouilly(Fr.) – $34.90 – Maconnais Sauvignon Blanc

Joseph Burrier Macon-Fuissé (Fr.) – $34.90 – Maconnais Chardonnay

I had both these last month and they are tremendous value for the quality you get.

G. Alessandria Barbera d’Alba 2007 (Italy) – $34.90

G. Alessandria Langhe Nebbiolo 2006 (Italy) – $39.90

Verve Negroamero (Italy) – $34.90 – Bronze medal winner Wine & Spirits Magazine 2008

La Gioisa Prosecco (Italy) 200ml 4 Pack – $29.90 – Very nice dry Prosecco  in a 4x200ml format. 2 glasses per bottle.

All of the Italians are simply divine. Worth the money.
