Blue Poles Allouran Merlot Cabernet Franc 2011

One of the things I most like about The WineFront, is that when the others are away, I pretty much get to run the show. Kind of like unrestricted access to Spotify, with no-one complaining. I’m tuning in here to 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc: country & western. Blue Poles is popular with our listeners, though Mark Gifford is a pretty obnoxious old bugger, I have to add. You know, I just type stuff directly as it pops into my head? It’s not about to change. And, to the best of my knowledge, apart from the odd Mattinson “You just can’t say that kind of stuff Walsh”, there’s just about no editorial control! Lovely. Onwards. August 2015 release date.

What is The Wine Front?

The WINEFRONT is Australia's most active wine review site. It started in 2002 and is, and always will be, entirely independent. It's run by wine lovers for wine lovers. It keeps enthusiasts ahead of the game by reviewing wines as they are released. Its focus is Australian wine but the coverage is open slather across the full wonderful gamut of world wine. It's run by Campbell Mattinson, Gary Walsh and Mike Bennie. A full history of reviews and articles, from the ridiculously sublime to the comically ridiculous, can be accessed via the WINE SEARCH tab.
