Setting off from Adelaide airport, we drove our rental car 139 km north along the Harrocks Highway to the main town of Clare. The initial drive north consisted of sweep pastoral scenes with rolling green hillsides populated by sheep and Gum trees. Once we reached the town of Auburn, this then changed to vineyards. Here is where the Clare Valley starts, at 250m above sea level, it continues north through the main towns of Watervale, Pentwortham, Sevenhills and finally Clare.
Iain and I attended the Mamba Riedel Awards last night at the Harrow at Little Bedwyn, the 10th anniversary year for Roger and Sue’s fabulous event. This year the categories were Aussie Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. We entered two wines into the awards and received 3 awards!
