Cedar Creek Estate Revelation Red 2009 (Granite Belt)
This may seem like I have crossed over to the Light side... but I really enjoy this wine.
So do many others that visit the Cedar Creek Estate Cellar door. The Revelation Red is a huge seller in the cellar (no, it's not really meant to be funny)
So, yes, the wine... well it's definitely a summer wine. Cab Sav and Muscat. Very easy to drink and only 9.5% Alcohol.
Very sweet and jammy, but extremely smooth on the palate. It's almost a 'fun' wine. (I can't believe I said that)
Let's just say that it went perfectly with the Chicken Saag I cooked today. mmm...
Better than most of the summer wines I have tried (moscato etc) but since it's really only available at the cellar door, it's not comparable price wise.
However, if you do find yourself at Tamborine mountain, then grab a bottle or two and head down into the Glow Worm caves.
They are pretty amazing.
Now I don't have a picture to go with this review, since I can't get a decent shot on the iPhone but when i do, I'll whack it on here. Apologies to those that need to see a label. (Umm.. I have obviously remedied my laziness and a photo appears)
Another extremely drinkable QLD summer wine. We seem to do summer quite well up here.
Give it a try and let me know what you think. I would love to buy more but the $18 price tag is a little prohibitive.
I realise that my tastes have run to the sweet of late, but the weather dictates it.
Price $18 at the Cellar Door
