Show 176, June 18, 2016: Kyle Meyer, Wine Exchange, Tasting in Australia’s Top Three Wine Regions

Kyle Meyer of Wine ExchangeOur resident wine authority, Kyle Meyer of Santa Ana’s Wine Exchange, is just back from a visit (and many tastings) to a couple of Australia’s premier wine producing areas. We’ll get the delightfully quaffable highlights…

On Kyle’s ambitious down under trek were the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale in South Australia and Margaret River in Western Australia. The Barossa is known for Shiraz, some coming from old vines dating back to the 1850s. McLaren Vale is famous for full-bodied reds. Margaret River is a newer wine producing region of distinction as it wasn’t reestablished until the late 60s.

Kyle notes there are excellent values in wines from these regions of Australia in the $15 to $30 price range.
