Fish & Chips & Riesling

Friday night, dinner out. We went to Garfish at Crows Nest, a really good seafood place about 15 minutes walk away. The weather was really hot (new record all-time high temperature for Sydney at 45.8°C), so I opted for the beach feel with the simple fish & chips from the menu that includes a lot more fancy stuff than that. It’s really good fish & chips. And the wine was Brindabella Hills 2011 Riesling, from the Canberra wine district. Really nice, lemony, a bit of residual bubble, and a bare hint of the usual riesling stoniness. It went really well with the fish on a hot night.

    Aha, I live only about 20km from that winery, although I must admit that I haven’t been there for years. Riesling and shiraz are two varieties that the Canberra district does particularly well. Maybe the chardonnays have improved lately, but I was never that impressed.
