Gibsons Wine Bar and Two Red Wines

This little corner bar has been a hit with the locals for a longtime, me included.

Gibsons Wine Bar is its name.gibsons wine bar hawthorn

Each time I step in to Gibsons, I immediately feel at home. Suffice to say, while I don’t have racks and racks of wine lined up in my home, it’s the friendly and welcoming atmosphere that gives it its homely feeling.
With an extensive range of wine on offer, you have the option of either picking out a bottle from the rack and/or fridge, or selecting a glass of wine from the wine list on offer. Not only do they stock wine, but they also stock a range of beers, ciders and spirits to cater for everyone. Perfect if you’re having a drink with a non-vino drinker!
With the drinks  sorted,  you can also order a side of olives, cheese or bread and dips; and if that doesn’t suit, you can even order takeaway to be delivered to you in the bar from local nearby places, just like you can do at home.

2 glasses I recently drank at Gibsons, and loved were
A full bodied oaky red, with tasting notes of dark berries and licorice.
This particular wine was quite rich and robust. So much so, that it was definitely a wine for slow drinking, compared to a typical Shiraz that I’m used to.
James Halliday rated this wine 92/100
Who’s James Halliday you ask? Google him. He’s one of Australia’s leading wine writers and critics. If you see a great review and rating by him, then you’re on to a winner.

 

Epsilon Shiraz BarossaEpsilon Shiraz Barossa – $10 a glass
A medium bodied red, with tasting notes of berry and chocolate.
While not as rich and robust as the Tatiara, this Shiraz was a pleasure to drink.
James Halliday rated this wine 94/100

 

To accompany the wine, my friend and I ordered takeaway pizza which was delivered to us in the bar from Pizza Religion – A delicious traditional Italian style thin crust pizza – mmmm! My favourite food to accompany any glass of wine.

So, be sure to get yourself down to Gibsons, and if you see me there popped up in the corner sipping on a vino be sure to say hi!
