How are you all enjoying the week? It’s hump day! To celebrate this cheerful mid-week accomplishment (and survival), we’ve decided to run a little giveaway on this humble ol’ blog since we haven’t done one in a while.
What is it?
Taylors Wines, a family-owned Australian wine company established 3 generations ago, out of South Australia’s beautiful Clare Valley believe in ‘Bringing great wines to life.’ Their passion of producing exceptional, hand crafted wines partnered with their understanding of the need to protect, preserve and enhance the quality of the fruit from their vineyards.
What I really love about the Taylors philosphy is their respect to the environment and their commitment to sustainability with a comprehensive Environmental Management System.
From a velvety Cabernet Sauvignon to delicate and refreshing Riesling, Taylors Wines boasts a world-class collection of unmistakeable quality and style.
Follow them on Twitter @Taylors_Wines for updates on their products!

I would absolutely do a light yet decadent and luxurious Pinot Gris + Brie butter! Perfect for tapas or appetizers. It always wins over a crowd at a dinner party, however my husband loves it the most!!! A true conversation and party starter. =)
i would make a shiraz feast with the shiraz and have the Pinot Gris after. the menu will consist of shiraz glazed quail to start followed by a shiraz braised beef cheek with creamy polenta and ending with shiraz and cinnamon poached pear served with vanilla bean ice cream.
I would use half the bottle of Shiraz to reduce down and make wine salt, use it to season a kangaroo fillet then sous vide it, then sear it in a hot pan and deglaze with some of the reserved wine. Served up with some smoked kipler potatoes and brussel sprouts. Yummo!
I would go with sushi. Two forms. White fish with Pinot Gris. Red fish with Shiraz. I have done this before and I was floored. Rich red fish works so well with clare Shiraz.
This option is relatively healthy and way enjoyable.
Thank you for your quest.
I’m not cooking WITH such good wines but I’d pair the Taylors Estate SHIRAZ with platters of char-grilled vegetables, dips and flat breads for perfect nibblies when friends congregate informally.
