So, wine lovers, it’s Wednesday already and have I got an interesting wine for you this week!
It’s a long story, bear with me!
My bank has a points based loyalty thing with my credit card that accumulates a point for every $ spent on MasterCard and 2 points for every $ on American Express. It’s the same account for both cards, so it doesn’t matter which one I use – anyway – normally these reward schemes are pretty crap, but not this one.
I get loads of free stuff for my points – and they do wine!!

Its Wednesday!! And guess what? Red Wine Time! Actually, that’s a teensy fib – its really Thursday, I just forgot to post this yesterday. Luckily for me, I’m in Australia and 3/4 of the globe is behind me, day-wise, so there might be somewhere left that’s still Wednesday!
It’s not good really – first I do a
Red White Wine Wednesday and then I spring a Red Wine Wednesday Thursday on you all! Some consistent brand image that is!! It’ll probably degenerate into a daily slurred Some Alcohol Day post before too long and you’ll be wondering what’s gone wrong in my life!!
So, what does this wonderful day have in store, wine wise?

So, my dear and beautiful readers, I’ve really spoiled you on the blog this last few weeks – 3 wine posts and some photos of my kids goofing off – I think I need to be more generous and diverse on my content creation.
Anyway, it is what it is – so welcome to another Red Wine Wednesday (in glorious wine colour too – am I good to you or what?)
This week – its a 2008 Woven Leaf Shiraz

Yes, vino-lovers, after a small hiatus caused by, well, laziness, it’s that time again..
Today’s lovely wine is..
A gorgeous Western Australian Shiraz. As I mentioned before, Shirazes (and Syrrah’s in Europe) have a peppery, blackcurranty earthy taste, not totally unlike a Rioja, except they lack that deep red earth full body of a typical Rioja.
This wasn’t a massively expensive wine but it was a good one – easily quaffable and a definite ‘buy again’. I bought it was an every day drinker, but it would pass muster as a nice Saturday afternoon, sun going down unwinding on the paito underneath dappled shade drinker too.
