Elevated Taste from the Granite Belt

It's only 10th March but good news of Granite Belt wines - the whites in particular - is coming in thick and fast this month. 

First cab of the rank was Robert Channon Wines whose highly acclaimed Verdelho recently made it to the top table at a parliamentary lunch in the nation's capital. Then news that at 35,000 feet you can now enjoy Ballandean Estate's Semillon Sauvignon Blanc (SSB) which has just been included on the in-flight menu of Qantas. Across the road today at Golden Grove Estate, they're also toasting their SSB (the 2010) which has just picked up a cool 5 stars (or 94 points) from James Halliday in his March tasting.

These and other great Granite Belt wines will be available at Granite Belt Flavours at South Bank this Sunday 10-4.

With the whites gaining such recognition, looks like Sommeliers Queensland are in for a treat when they host their special taste of the Granite Belt in Brisbane next month.
