Charles Sturt University – Wine Tasting

Hi Everyone, well over the weekend, while attending Code Camp Oz 2008 in Wagga Wagga I had a chance to taste some of the wine from Charles Sturt University.

On offer was the 2003 Limited Release Cabernet Sauvignon, their current vintage Port and a white which I admittedly didn’t taste.

The Cabernet was a tad bit too soft for my tastes, felt like the acidity wasn’t balanced enough – i.e. not enough to balance the wine, it felt flat.

However, by contrast the Port was quite nice. Not Galway Pipe Port, but not a bad substitute. It didn’t have the large punch that you sometimes get with the larger ports, but this was a more silky port, easy to drink.

We opened a bottle of Bordeaux last week before I headed off to Sydney, so I’ll have to write about it later in the week. For now, happy quaffing..
