Andres Sanchez, the winemaker at Gillmore winery – our neighbours in the Loncomilla Valley, gave us the ultimate wine-tasting. We popped by just as he was in the laboratory determining the final blends for the 2010 reds before they are bottled in the next few weeks. It was such a treat to hear the award-winning winemaker talk about how these wines will taste after being in the bottle for a few years. The Carignan was very young and had some serious energy in your mouth, according to Andres this ensures it will develop a full flavour as it ages in the bottle.

It was also fun to see the science laboratory where the delicate blending happens.
