He said: Brownish-red color. Maybe a very light fruit aroma. Fruit with a sweet taste and a finish that grows and becomes a tad sharp, and full of sweet fruit. In a nutshell I think we can buy better and cheaper Australian wine at Total Wine in the United States than they sell in the Airlie Beach bottle shop on Whitsunday Island!!!
She said: Bought in the tourist town of Airlie Beach, Australia, this wine was our first venture into inexpensive Australian wines bought in the country of origin. Frankly, Ray rebelled at the thought and he bought one of the most expensive wines in the “bottle shop”…Australian for liquor store. So I’m solely responsible for this purchase.
Predictably, the wine had no perceivable aroma. The first taste was sweet and fruity and had a hint of dryness. The flavor improved over the first 15-minutes and than stalled and remained the same. Dryness, tannins and body were pleasant and tasty with the cheese. The finish was medium long with no outstanding characteristics.
