Point Leo Road Lagrein

Have you every had a time when you put your foot right in it, without any way of retrieving the situation without looking like a dick? Well….this wine did just that! Point Leo Road Lagrein 2011 $28 @ Blairgowrie LG My mate down at Blairgowrie loves this wine, strongly recommended it, so I bought it. Better be good, Chris!? Never heard of the varietal before, Lagrein, which comes from northern Italy, and is a cousin of Pinot Noir and Shiraz amongst others. Point Leo Road winery is, surprisingly, on Point Leo Road…..Red Hill Sth! God’s own country, Mornington Peninsula! So far, so good. Trying new styles is always interesting, helps broaden your mind to the possibilities, and provides a nice change of wine scenery. There’s only so much Shiraz you can wash down with a roast leg of lamb! Roast lamb, open fire, bottle of red….perfect! Have I mentioned my hatred towards all reds 2011? No? My mantra to all who do, or don’t, listen…..never buy 2011 unless absolutely no alternative. It was a stinker …
