Once George Michael sang you’ve gotta have Faith and in 2010 most of the Barossan Winemakers did, (what a lovely segue). Anyway the Faith here is named after St Hallet legend Stu Blackwell’s wife and what a fine dedication it is. It smells of red fruits and Kirsch, there’s some vanilla and plum too, a slight note of oak char nothing overtly Barossa about this either in the sense that it’s quite medium bodied. It feels good in the mouth, a burst of cranberry and raspberry perhaps and pronounced spice, some mouth coating tannins and a fine acid backbone. Good wine from a favourable vintage and really very drinkable, humming an even finer tune on day two.

This social media thing is a blast, I like a good tweet as much as the next man but facebook is so like last year. However people tell me it’s a really nice way of connecting with an older audience, so lets see how many friends and followers I can make…
