The Rotary Club of Margaret River has decided to make changes to their annual Fun Run. Rotary has plans to hold the event around the grounds of one of our iconic wineries.
While the Fun Run has gone from town to the Rivermouth for many years, the traffic management and other logistic issues have become a major concern for the Club.

The Wine Quiz

Each week a Margaret River winery donates two bottles of one of their classic wines.

One bottle forms the informal ‘blind tasting’ quiz whilst members are arriving at the start of the meeting. The quiz winner will win the second bottle of wine.

Monday nights wine was a 2011 Shiraz from Forester Estate on Wildwood Road, Yallingup

Our thanks to the owners, Kevin and Jenny McKay

Bills thoughts...

They are a 5 Red Star winery (rating by James Halliday) - which really says that they are consistent producers of wines at the highest level.

 
There’s a change happening in Margaret River, and this Shiraz is in the middle of it. These were once the ‘ordinary’ wines; the wines that most of us could afford to drink. We enjoyed them, didn’t think too much about them and accepted that they were the wines of the common man. Only the wealthy got to drink wines that warranted thinking about; matching with food; putting down carefully to age and then drinking to bask in the feeling that all is well in the world.
 
The change is that the biggest movement (upward) in Margaret River wine is with this ‘value for money’ middle bracket. There are now some fabulous wines in this bracket and this 2011 Forester Estate is an excellent example.  Online at just over $20, it’s a bargain, it’s delicious, it warrants drinking with food and slowly….and thinking that all is well in the world. The full tasting notes are here
