Walkabout 2012 Hahndorf Hill Winery

What’s better than a good wine tasting? How about if you added a selection of the world’s best chocolates? How about if you get to choose from a pre-selected group of expert pairings or maybe you prefer to make some pairings of your own. Yeah that would be great you say! Then gather up your drinking partner and head on up to Hahndorf Hill Winery in the beautiful Adelaide Hills.
With a nice selection of wine s for tasting including some Austrian varieties for your drinking pleasure, it is a unique tasting experience. With Gruner Veltliner, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, White Mischief , generally a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Rosé (described as a Rosé for blokes), Zweigelt, Blaufrankisch and a lovely Cool style Shiraz to choose from.

Adelaide Hill’s Shiraz are often times described as typically delicate and complex, but as was discovered here should not be assumed to be delicate as these are silky and composed of a medley of red berries, earthy dark chocolate and with excellent structure.

The Adelaide Hill’s Shiraz are often described as ‘Feminine’ but the Hahndorf Hill 2007 Shiraz has been described as ‘Metrosexual’ due the influence of a very hot summer. So the wines are great but it's time to up the ante, now for some Chocolate!

Go ahead, dive into the ChocoVino experience. You'll get to explore exciting new taste sensations all the while enjoying some great view’s of the Adelaide Hills. You will experience how the concept of terroir links both chocolate and wine. In this video from HahndorfHill’s website you will meet Larry and Marc who will 'talk and walk' you through the Hahndorf Hill experience with Grant talking about the specific chocolates.

ChocoVino is presented seven days a week (excluding public holidays) from 11am to 5pm at the cellar door. Bookings are essential. If you wish to book for ChocoVino, or you would like further information, contact the cellar door.

Koala gives the Hahndorf Hill experience a ‘Must Do’ if you are in Adelaide. Whether it’s just to taste the wonderful wines or to experience what has recently been listed on CNN's prestigious '10 global adventures for chocoholics.' The choice is yours, just do it!

While there if you see Larry, tell him Koala says g’day!

Happy Tasting Adventures,


Kiwi & Koala
