Granite Belt wines Noosa Style

There is no doubt that Noosa certainly punches above its size when it comes to exceptional dining experiences - achieving exceptional results in the latest Australia Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Awards Guide.

But Noosa Style magazine tells readers that when enjoying a meal in one of their fabulous restaurants experience an award winning wine, acclaimed by James Halliday, from the Granite Belt.

"When the legendary James Halliday refers to Queensland as having some excellent wine with the 'red wines (Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon) fairing the best', it's surely time that everyone takes note."

Noosa Style also took a fancy to one of our favourite quotes by the James Halliday Wine Companion, "this year outposts such as Queensland's Granite Belt and New South Wales' Southern Highlands and Hilltops stand shoulder to shoulder with the Hunter and Barossa valleys, Rutherglen, Langhorne Creek and the Mornington Peninsula."

So next time you ask for the wine list, select a Granite Belt wine and discover what the connoisseurs already know.

Thanks Noosa!
