    WINE RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THIS EPISODE:

    The Domaine A Pinot Noir is not like any other Australian of NZ Pinot, so David suggests looking for a French Burgundy.

    For the Italian Carmenere Oseleta, Christian recommends a spicy Grenache and Chris recalls the 2018 Saperavi from Patritti Wines in South Australia. This wine featured in S1. Ep4 Amy Winehouse and was our favourite wine from the whole season.

  • There’s a fair bit of disagreement about this album but not the wines, they are terrific. Is The Seldom Seen Kid by Elbow a romantic testament to love, a bag of sickly sweet love poems or pretentious artsy guff? You be the judge, when you listen to the Wine & Vinyl Club.

    To match The Seldom Seen Kid, Christian brings an Italian white. The 2021 San Marzano Timo Vermentino. An elegant, refreshing and mineral wine with delicate white floral aromas combined with notes of thyme. https://sanmarzano.wine/

    While Chris brings a fantastic medium bodied red from Chile. The 2020 Casillero del Diablo, Reserva Privada Carmenere from the Rapel Valley. https://www.casillerodeldiablo.com/wine/reserva-privada-carmenere/

  • Well done if you've stuck with us for Season 1. Here is a bit of fun to tide you over until Season 2 starts. Also, the W&VC brings a new life into the world (more about that at the end of the podcast).

    David, Chris and Christian have put together a short quiz loosely based on season 1. There's a music round, a wine round and 'Christian's mixed round.' Each round is supposed to have 10 questions but things don't always work out as you planned.

    There’s a bonus Eurovision episode coming your way in a fortnight, and we look forward to you joining us again when Season 2 starts two weeks later.

  • SHOW NOTES

    Join us, as we play the ‘Eurovision drinking game’ with three cocktails, chat about our favourite performers and get very loose in the hilarious quiz with Björn from Sweden.

    To match Eurovision 2022, Christian brings a delicious ‘Stormy Arse’ cocktail, his version of a Dark and Stormy fused with a Moscow Mule.

    Recipe: 1 & ½ shots of Vodka, ½ shot of Dark Rum, 1 shot of passion fruit pulp, squeeze of fresh lime and a sprig of fresh mint. Shake in a cocktail shaker with ice, then pour into glass with ice. Top with ginger beer to taste a slice of lime and sprig of mint to garnish.

    David brings a ‘Rainbow Warrior’ cocktail. A multicoloured alcoholic slushy, that looks amazing but certainly doesn’t taste it.

    Recipe: 1 shot each of Vodka and Bacardi, ½ shot of Cointreau and 1 shot of fresh lime juice. Freeze a packet of mixed icepoles (zuperdoopers) then blend separately to create different coloured slushies. Layer each slushy in a tall glass adding a little of your alcohol mix as you go. When its a rainbow of colours, add dramatic garnishes such as; lit sparklers, umbrellas, fruit slices, novelty straws etc.

    We finish off the episode with Chris’ ‘Lose your Vision’ cocktail. Which involves a shot followed by a delightfully sophisticated cocktail.

    Recipe: 1 shot of Old Young’s Pavlova vodka with a tuft of pink fairy floss sitting on top of the shot glass. For the cocktail mix ½ shot Pavlova vodka, Chambord Raspberry Liqueur and Gin with fresh lime juice and top with Cranberry soda to taste.

    It’s the final episode of season 1 and Chris, David and Christian review a hard rocking album from the 90’s, Blood Sugar Sex Magik by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Join us for the mayhem that ensues, when we all down a stiff cocktail and two delectable bottles of wine, then attempt to discuss coherently an album we all agree is a classic.

    To match this album, Chris brings an unusual Australian blend of 55% Syrah and 45% Pinot Noir, the 2020 ‘Nouveau’ from Meadowbank Winery in the Derwent Valley, Tasmania. This wine retails for around $43 AUD. We loved this light, easy drinking summer red. https://www.meadowbank.com.au/

    Christian brings something very different. A deliciously light Italian red, the Torre Mora Scalunera Etna Rosso Doc 2020. This $30 wine is also a blend, consisting of two Italian varieties Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. https://www.piccini1882.it/en/family-estates/torre-mora/#azienda

    David brings a ‘Funky Monk’. A hard rocking cocktail which celebrates both the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the album Blood Sugar Sex Magik by fusing four key ingredients to create something very special.

    Recipe: 1 shot Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin, ½ shot Tanqueray Gin infused with Earl Grey tea, ½ shot of Cointreau, ½ shot Belsazar Dry Vermouth, ½ shot of lime infused sugar syrup, 1 shot of fresh lime juice, a few drops of Disaronno Amaretto liqueur. Shake with ice in a cocktail shaker and serve over ice in a rocks glass. (You can also add a few drops of Tabasco sauce if you want to spice things up)

Pour yourself a lovely drink, settle down and listen to find out, as we largely disagree about Curtis Mayfield’s 1975 melancholy funk album, There’s no place like America today.

    To match this album, Chris brings a $60 bottle of 2017 Amelia Park Cabernet Sauvignon from the Margaret River Region, Western Australia. An outstanding example of a Margaret River Cab Sav, with dark brooding fruit and notes of cedar and graphite.

    Christian decides on a $75 bottle of Julian James Rare Pedro 1978 Solero Blend No. 2 from Talijancich Wines in Swan Valley, Western Australia. This is Christian’s favourite winery when he’s in the mood for a fortified. This immense wine tasted like Christmas in a bottle.

    Wow! College Dropout, is it a contender for the greatest hip-hop album of all time? Or is it a flawed, overlong, hypocritical, misogynistic, and egotistical pile of $#*! Or perhaps, it’s all these things and more. Chris, David and Christian certainly do not see eye to eye on this one but we do manage to drink some wonderful wines whilst listening to it.


    To match College Dropout, Chris brings two vintages of PepperJack Cabernet Sauvignon wines from the Barossa Valley, South Australia.


    2019 – ($21). Violet in colour. Aromas of ripe berry fruits, black currants and plums with mint and varietal leafy notes. The palate is flavoursome, with dark fruits and hints of oak. However, its youth doesn’t help as it is still astringent in the mouth.


    2013 – ($29) Age has worked its wonders. This wine is deep plum in colour. The smell of dark berry fruits has ripened, and the palate is plush with dark fruit and savouriness. The tannins have softened, making this generous, rich, and smooth.


    Christian decides on a $15 bottle of Kung Fu Girl Reisling from Charles Smith Wines, in Columbia Valley Washington State USA. A deliciously approachable, off-dry white wine with flavours of peach, apricot, and honey. https://www.charlessmithwines.com/

    To match London Calling, Chris brings a $30 bottle of 2019 Henschke, Henry’s 7 from the Barossa Valley, South Australia. This elegant blend of shiraz, grenache, mataro and viognier has a fragrant nose and spicy berry fruits on the palate. https://www.henschke.com.au/wine/henry-s-seven/18798/

    Wine recommendations from this episode:

    Chris recommends trying something different, maybe a grape varietal that you’ve never had before. More often than not, you won’t be disappointed. If you struggle to find a bottle of Saperavi, try a Malbec. This more common grape is popular in South America and shares many similarities with the Saperavi.
