It was following a delicious steak night at the Arcadia hotel that my friend recommended we go to South Press for some wine and cheese to finish off the evening.
Walking in to South Press, the first thing I noticed was the floor-to-ceiling wall of wine bottles and glasses in the middle of the venue. With a wall of wine this size, I knew we’d be in for a treat.
No surprise, it was an impressive menu to say the least.
Covering off each of the varieties (sparkling, white, rose, and red), the list contained a curated selection of wines from all over the world, and from our very own backyard.
The hard part was choosing what to drink!
My choice of wine for the evening was a Six Parallels South Assemblagé 2015. It was a blend of three grape varieties – Sauvignon Blanc (40%), Verdelho (38%), and Chardonnay (22%). Each great on their own, but when blended together = amazingness
Along with the wine, my friend and I tucked in to a delicious semi-hard Spanish sheep’s cheese covered in rosemary. On the side were some slices of fruit bread and a fruit paste.
At the end of the evening I wanted to keep drinking the wine, however with it being a school night I decided to be sensible Sally and buy a bottle for later. Retail $27.
That’s right, the wine bar also doubles as a wine shop!
So what makes a wine Kosher wine?
Australia is one country where demand for Kosher wine has increased in recent times, and Six Parallels South is one winery that has got it perfected.
