The following notes come from a short (but intense) wine tasting trip taken during this years Canberra district harvest festival.
On this particular mission the aim was to try new vintages and new releases from some likely Canberra producers.
What was most surprising was how many wineries were still showing the same vintages as a year ago, reminding perhaps just how challenging it is for small producers in developing wine regions (given that the Canberra district is very much a wine region in it’s infancy, even though wine has been produced in the district for 160 years).
Regardless, I’m happy to report that quality was reassuringly high and several new discoveries made the 700kms (in one day) worth of driving worthwhile.
