This month, I will focus on a small winemaker from the Beechworth wine region located at the foothills of the beautiful North-East Victorian Alpas – the Giaconda winery.
I’m sure most of you have already heard about Giaconda but only the happy few get the privilege to open and taste the beautiful vintages which this 4 hectares estate produces.
The Giaconda Aeolia 2008, made of Roussanne, is an absolute gem.
The nose is composed of peaches, plum, apricot.
The palate, slightly oily, very long, with a little bitterness and grapefruit, softened by vine peaches… is unreal.
For reasons I can’t understand Giaconda doesn’t make it any more.
Few bottles of 2008 and 2009 are still left in the market: sell your house, your children, your partner but get your hands on the last bottles and drink them now!
Have you ever tried the Aeolia? I’m curious to know your thoughts – leave your comments below!
