Session 28 - Neil Prentice - Moondarra and Holly's Garden

When Neil Prentice approached Swirl, Sniff, Spit about the possibility of being involved with our October session - we simply jumped at the chance.

We first tasted some of Neil's wines in our April 2012 session, encountering lusciously textured Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir with depth that were savoury and serious.

Neil always seems to have something going on, he's a partner in - due to open shortly - restaurant Big Huey's Diner, a passionate St Kilda fan, raises Tajima - producing fantastically marbled beef - and in short is a bit of a character. He's also partial to a drop of Mataro (which Stu thinks the greatest of Neil's many qualities :)

Without stealing much more of Neil's thunder, here's the line-up for Tuesday 15th October. Usual caveats: still a work-in-progress, vintages may change etc
