Barossa Trip for Throsby Creekers
The Throsby Creek Oenological Phalanx headed to the beautiful Barossa for their Biannual Away Trip form the Wine of the Year Awards. We had a ball and stayed at Barossa Cottages which was very nice and excellent food.
Highlights of the trip was tasting in Tscharke's underground cellar with Damien Tscharke. It was educational, entertaining and the wines were great.
The Wine of Year went to Chris and Manny for serving the Borsao Tres Picos Grenache. The White Wine of the Year went to Megan for a 2011 Allandale Chardonnay and she also picked up the Red Wine of the Year for the 2005 Wolf Blass Grey Label Shiraz. Perennial Hosts of the Year Pete and Sean cleaned up again.
