Something good from the west … Witchmount Shiraz

We hear many things from the western suburbs. The high crime rate, the latest included the racists attacks on Indian students in Footscray, notoriously mobile-phone recorded and uploaded to U-tube (which incidentally, has been removed). The Mcmansions, large houses in places such as Caroline Springs, and then there’s the crowded trains for the daily communte to and fro the city. But out of all these, something special, has been achieved by a small little vineyard in the western suburbs, sufficient enough to win the highest accolades in the wine industry.

If you don’t already own a bottle of the 2004 Witchmount Shiraz, well, its too late now. It has recently won the Syrah du Monde wine competition held annually in France. If you do have a bottle, you might want to keep it for another 6 years til maturity. At $26 a bottle, its really quite a bargain.

So, if you are ever in the area, Witchmount is along the Melton Highway. It is surrounded by an English pub called the Gamekeepers Inn and a Windmill restaurant (of course, featuring a huge windmill!).
