Wine Of The Month Scores 96 Points! Great Fathers Day Gift

Wine Of The Month Club members are in for another treat this month when they receive a wonderful bottle of red wine delivered to their home or office from the Mclaren Valley wine region of South Australia – that just happened to score 96 points from James Halliday!

James Halliday (famous Australian wine writer and critic) in his 2014 Australian Wine Companion gave this months Wine Of The Month Club selection an amazing  96 Points! And placed it in his “Best of Other Reds and Blends.”

“The colour is deep, the bouquet with strong black fruit aromas, and the seemingly inevitable touch of dark chocolate; a strong spice character runs through the palate, originally with red pepper, ageing into green pepper; outstanding tannin management is the key to an exceptionally good wine, one of the magic touches being a late decision to include the mataro in the blend, making it a complete wine.”

QUOTE from Glen James-Pritchard
DUCKS IN a ROW Winemaker

“All grapes were hand picked; small batch fermented and basket pressed before being blended and matured in old hogsheads. The vibrancy of Graciano is integral to balance the low acidity of Tempranillo and the Mataro adds further depth, structure and savoury qualities. It’s a hedonistic glimpse of McLaren Vale.”

Have You Tried a Boc Beer?

Boc beer is a rich, complex and malty style of lager.

“But dont think all Dark Boc beers are the same,” says Nathan aka manager at Buckleys Beer, “because there are many varieties which can be different in taste but never boring.”

Buckleys Dark Boc Beer

Monasteries were known for brewing stronger beers for sustenance during their Lenten fasts which is the reason many Boc beer experts say Boc beer originated from this. However others say Boc beer is a Pagan or old world influence at a time when it was only brewed during the sign of the Capricorn goat (the reason why goat symbols are often associated with Boc beer) and was seen as a  symbol of hope and better times to come when nearing the end of winter.

In brewing terms a Boc beer generally takes months of lagering in cold storage to smooth out the strong ingredients. And is generally brewed with stronger ingredients than the majority of lagers with a distinctive dark amber to brown hue robust malt flavour. In addition Boc beer is only lightly hopped in the brewing process to avoid over balancing a hoppy bitterness with the desired malt flavour.

All in all we really enjoyed the Buckleys Dark Boc selected for the Beer Of The Month Club and look forward to trying more.

Cheers,
