Welcome back everyone. Sorry about not posting a “Wine of the Week” last week. If I told you I was kidnapped by a travelling Mongolian circus would you believe me?
Anyways…back to the wine. This week’s wine is a monster wine from South Australia. The 2007 Black Chook is super fruity and quite alcoholic. There is nothing small about this wine. It has very big flavours of cherry, strawberry, red currants, and cedar. The one thing this wine lacks is balance and a bit of finesse. This is not a wine to drink by itself; it needs to be paired with grilled meat to really shine.
At $17.95 The Black Chook is a fantastic value. I would strongly encourage you to seek out this wine at your local LCBO …but that’s just my opinion. Let me know what you think.
Oh…if you were wondering…a chook is what they call a chicken in the Land of Oz. Go figure….
