giveaway! shiraz & pinot gris, from taylors wines
*winner announced*

Come one, come all, wine-sipping Australians!

I'm happy to be offering a little giveaway today, thanks to Taylors Wines. One lucky reader will win two bottles of wine - the juicy, multi-award winning Taylors Estate Shiraz 2010 and a fresh, elegant Taylors Estate Pinot Gris 2011.


There is a lot to feel good about when drinking a glass of wine produced by the Taylor family. These guys are clearly dedicated to their wine - three generations so far and still going strong. Their philosophy of "bringing great wines to life" is based on the imperative of "respect the fruit" - the fruit being, of course, those luscious grapes grown in the beautiful Clare Valley of South Australia. Just as importantly, they are committed to environmentally-friendly and socially-responsible sustainability practices.

So if you'd like to win a couple bottles of wine from Taylors, one red, one white, both sure to bring a lovely warm glow to your day, then here's your chance!

Giveaway details:

This giveaway is open to those with an Australian address only. Winner must be of legal drinking age and provide proof of age upon request.

For a chance to win, please leave a comment telling me what dish you would cook, or order, to go with a bottle of shiraz or pinot gris - or, alternatively, what dish you would create with those wines. I'm looking forward to some scrumptious ideas!

Please ensure that there is some way I can reach you (e-mail address, twitter account, blog URL etc) if you win. The deadline is the 31st of March, 2013 - I'll be going by the time stamp on this blog, which is based in Melbourne, Australia. I'll announce the winner on the 2nd of April by updating this blog post, or you can also keep an eye out on Twitter or Facebook for an announcement.

I will then contact the winner to organise the shipping of the prize.

Thank you Taylors Wines for making this happen!

  1. Great competition!

    I'd make a slow-cooked beef cheek, braised in shiraz, served with mashed potato and sprinkled with gremolata. And of course I'd serve the rest of the bottle alongside! :)

  2. Oh stop it! I would make a delicious risotto... and then drink the bottle of wine! Haha. No but seriously I would probably just drink it.

    1. You can (and should) totally drink it! Apologies if the question was a tad ambiguous, I've now re-worded it just in case - you may either suggest a dish to match the wine, or suggest a dish that you can make with the wine. Risotto would be lovely with the pinot gris, I imagine. :)

  3. Doh, the beef in red wine idea has already been mentioned! In that case, perhaps I'd make chicken fricassee with the white =).

    1. I've actually not made chicken fricassee before, I should try that sometime! :)

  4. I will pick the Shiraz and cook a moorish and comfy beef cheek stew.

  5. I would make garlic and cherry tomato prawn linguine to go with the white... OR I would make clams in white wine! Very seafoody. <3 xxx

    1. Awww! I'm planning on doing another giveaway in the future, the product will be my own, the rules will be all up to me and I will be making it open internationally. So check back for your opportunity! :)

  7. Well I'm clearly off the list for this one. But I'll take this moment to say that I recently enjoyed my first glass of 'Pinotage' at a wine pairing dinner. Oh my friggin goodness, was that ever incredible! Super smoky and robust and insert snobby knowledgable wine lingo here. Have you had Pinotage before?

    1. No I haven't, actually! I must get me some Pinotage, it seems. Thanks for the recommendation! :)

  8. Ooh yummmy! Great giveaway! :) I might just do a couple of lamb chops with some creamy mashed potatoes for the shiraz!

  9. A glass of shiraz would go down VERY well with a simple and beautiful piece of grass-fed eye fillet steak with garlic butter and salad on the side :)

  10. A gorgeous scallop risotto with a glass of the Pinot Gris in it, and another (large) glass to go with it too- yummo!

  14. I would use the Shiraz to slow cook for Pork chops with Indian Spices to give it a nice flavorful kick and serve it with roast vegetables like Pumpkin, Zucchini, Carrots on a bed of fragrant saffron pulao.
