A couple of wines liberated from Sydney Airport Duty-Free, and a golden drop from FNQ.
Guigal Côte-Rôtie Northern Rhône 2007 – $$$+ – drink now-2022. This should be a generous and delicious Rhône rouge.
Louis Jadot Meursault Côte-d’Or 2012 – $$$+ – drink now -2019. I still recall the profound impact a glass of Meursault had on my palate when I ate lunch at Ramsay’s Hospital Road restaurant with my sister. I hope this lives up to that.
Golden Drop Mango Wine Semi-Dry – $$ – drink now – 2022. Tasted and bought at the winery on the drive from Mossman to the Atherton Tablelands. A novel and fun sticky for later!
