After promising a few weeks back to lend my Due Jolly instagram friend a book I’d reviewed previously on @winesandbooks, we popped out to Pickering Brook in the picturesque Perth Hills last Sunday.
While we were there we sampled the wines, and snacked on a delicious spread of bruschetta and a glass of their 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine had blackcurrant and plum aromas, smooth palate – dark red plums with hints of chocolate.
We shared a board of four bruschetta, lovely toasted garlic/herb bread topped with red onion, tomatoes and a delicious, (I found out later – home made) pesto. I’m going to see if I can buy a jar next time I’m out that way!
Due Jolly prepares platters and/or bruschetta in the summer months; platters and/or soup in the winter months, plus wine (of course), coffee and cake all year round.
It was a beautiful relaxing day in the hills and a very pretty vista looking out over the fruit trees and vines, while sitting back sipping on our wines.
