Brian Pasch, noted wine writer, is going to Australia in late march to taste the 2009 vintage of wines. Pasch will be visiting several Australian wineries and will track his journey online using a new wine social networking site, http://www.weloveshiraz.com , as his platform.
Pasch’s first stop, and perhaps his most anticipated, is to the Mollydooker winery. Mollydooker Wines are responsible for creating some of the world’s highest ranking wines, including the Carnival of Love Shiraz from McLaren Vale South Australia which was chosen as one of the Top 10 wines in the world in the Wine Spectator Top 100 wines annual review. Their 2005 Lefty reds were rated the 1st, 2nd and 4th best value wines in the world under $20 by Wine Advocate, and their Love Wines received 99 and 96 point scores.
Pasch will be the first to experience their 2009 vintage in its entirety and is excited to share his findings online with fellow Australian wine lovers. Early reports already suggest that the 2009 vintage is outstanding, and Mollydooker co-owner, Sparky Marquis, says the 2009 wines are among some of the best wines they have ever bottled.
Beyond Mollydooker, Pasch will make his way through several well known wineries, all the while video-taping and blogging about the 2009 wines he has tasted and sharing his earliest discoveries and thoughts about the anticipated 2009 vintages from Australia.
