Wine Of The Month

The Grape Escape – Wine of the Month

It should come as no surprise that here at The Morrison we have a serious obsession with wine, with over 130 different bottles of the good stuff on our current wine list sourced from makers all over the world, we consider ourselves very lucky…

Every day we have the privilege of recommending these incredible wines to our customers, offering an insight to the history of the maker, the vineyard, and not only the flavour profile – but also food matches for the ultimate umami escapism.

Introducing our Wine of the Month, the 2011 Tyrrell’s STEVENS Single Vineyard Hunter Semillon. An award winning vintage thanks to our good friends the Tyrrell’s family and their infamous friendly “handshake” deal with Neil Stevens, the owner of Stevens Glenoak Vineyard.

Using grapes picked in late January 2011 and bottled almost 5 months later, the Stevens is a beautiful example of a semi mature Hunter Semillon and understandably an icon of the Tyrrell’s single vineyard portfolio.

The nose shows fresh citrus and floral characters, with only a hint of toasty bottle age development.

The palate is dominated by zesty lime, with a mineral edge and softened acidity and structure.

A glass of this elegant drop can be enjoyed all year round, but as we move into the summer season, we recommend treating yourself to a dozen freshly shucked oysters.

The love affair between citrus profiled wines and oysters is stronger than ever when it comes to a wine like this.

Take for example a fresh rock oyster, with its salty, mineral tones – the Semillon’s lemon and lime zing, hints of tropical fruits, and textural acidic finish, compliments the oysters flavour perfectly. Add a squeeze of lemon, or a dash of mignonette and you’ll find yourself ordering another round!

Tyrrell’s Stevens Single Vineyard Semillon is available by the glass ($17) and bottle ($78)

We’ll see you at the bar!

The Most Wonderful Time Of Year

Every year, somewhere in between a mini-break to Bali and planning our Halloween costumes – we start the inevitable countdown to Christmas. Whether you’re ready for it or not, your local supermarket is playing Christmas carols on a loop and you find yourself stock piling boxes of Roses chocolates just in case Aunty Jan and Uncle Lance drop in for a cuppa.

Here at The Morrison, we begin our Christmas planning in much the same way (albeit minus the impulse purchases and panic attacks at the sight of giant candy canes). We like to keep our Christmas simple using an old fashioned recipe of good food, good wine and great company!

It starts with a POP! Kick off your celebration, big or small, with a glass of bubbly! Preferably something French such as Piper-Heidsieck Brut, the perfect aperitif said to taste like the stars…

Many Oysters make much love… We say it a lot, and we seriously mean it! These mollusc morsels are delicious all year round, harvested from around the beautiful coastlines of Australia and freshly shucked before arriving at the table. The festive season is no exception, our oysters are served au natural in the shell and pair perfectly with a glass of Piper…

Sign off with a Snowball… It wouldn’t be Christmas without a tipple of brandy, we mix Hennessy VS with maple syrup, vanilla & cinnamon sugar, lemon juice and egg white – the result is a creamy sweet punch with hints of your Nana’s Christmas pudding. Warm and gently spiced, the ultimate way to end your night!
