Gold Medal International Series takes you to Australia this month!

The fold out booklet that accompanies the wine is a great read. It packs in a ton of info on the featured region/theme. Information is presented on the Australian wine industry, culture, and general Australian trivia.

A full page is devoted to profiling Hastwell & Lightfoot Vineyards, the makers of this month’s selections.

And, of course, we get full tasting notes on each of the three wines included in our box, plus reorder information and pricing.

Our three selections this month from Gold Medal Wine Club’s International Series. Three very different wines all from the Hastwell & Lightfoot Vineyards located in the McClaren Vale winemaking region, nestled in the Southeast corner of the State of South Australia.

Hastwell & Lightfoot 2012 Shiraz: Rich with blackberries and blackcurrants, with a sweet, slightly briny finish. The vineyard describes the aroma and flavor as “dark berries and fruitcake.”

Though produced solely from Shiraz, this wine is blended from five blocks of grapes separately fermented and aged in American oak, ensuring a diversity of wine is available to achieve the desired blend.

Hastwell & Lightfoot 2016 Vermentino: This Vermentino is an Italian varietal originally grown in Sardinia and Corsica. It has a fruity nose and palate dominated by stonefruit, with a lemony citrus finish.

Fresh and crisp, this wine is best paired with simply prepared seafood.

Hastwell & Lightwell 2015 Cabernet Franc: An earthy and berry-centric wine with a slightly herbal nose.

Often used as a third grape in a Bordeaux blend, this varietal stands well on its own, echoing the flavors of it’s more famous cousin, but with an earthy, less aggressive palate.

Along with receiving great wines, you also get discounts on reorders of your favorites, plus bonus bottles for successfully referring friends!

This edition of Gold Medal Wine Club’s International Wine Club featured three Australian wines cultivated from Old World varietals. Each is grown in the lovely Mediterranean-esque climate of South Australia’s McClaren Vale and imported exclusively through Gold Medal Wine Club.
