As we departed West Lakes this morning – I'm sure it's not going to hit Archer properly until this arvo or in the morning – we headed to Kaz and Jim's for coffee before taking a trip through the surrounding Wine Country.
Up through Tanunda, passing Seppeltsfields, Penfolds and countless other wineries all begging for us to stop in and taste their wares.
We stopped in at Tanunda for a quick bite of lunch and a rum and raisin ice cream at the Sweet As Barossa Diner in all its 50's glory! Awesome job on the decor, spotlessly clean and great food!
Arriving in Nuriootpa we stopped for a quick peak at the Barossa Ford Clubs display before they all packed up. Mustangs, GT's, Falcons to delight any Ford enthusiast.
We passed more wineries and came across Banrock Station, well we just had to stop here. We love their pink and white Moscato's and they are reasonably priced. What a great setup they have with the wetlands as well, just stunning.
We did some quick sampling of their new summer fruit infused wines, a Red Moscato and a Crimson Cabernet. Sold! We left with 3 new varieties. The latter two mentioned and the White Wine with Tropical Fruits (hints of peach, mango, passion fruit and pineapple).
Crossing the mighty Murray River (which we will do a few times yet – it's Australia's longest river!) we are back to heading to Mildura where we will spend the next two nights before heading to Broken Hill, NSW on Tuesday!
Raising a glass to y'all! 🙂
