Heafod Glen Winery Mar 02, 2017
During our visit to Perth in November 2015, we booked ourselves onto a wine and food tasting tour of the nearby Swan Valley.

The tour that we booked was run by Out & About Wine Tours and included 5 wineries, a brewery and a chocolate company.

The fifth stop (and final winery) on the tour was Heafod Glen Winery; a small and friendly winery attached to the multi-award-winning Chesters Restaurant.

As we stood at the bar in the tasting room next to the restaurant, the friendly manager, Duncan, talked us through the grape varieties grown there and the various wines that they produced, allowing us to sample them as he spoke.

By this stage of the afternoon, we had already tasted between 30 and 40 wines, and my tastebuds had long since lost the ability to pick out subtle flavours or identify the variety of grape used in a specific wine. My note-taking was becoming increasingly scribbly and brief - but I took enough photos to piece together the wines that we tasted!

We started with a non-vintage sparkling Grenache rose wine, before proceeding onto the whites; a 2014 Semillon, a 2015 Viognier, a 2014 Chenin Blanc and a 2014 "Loose Goose" sweet white wine. We finished with a couple of reds; a 2011 Cabernet Shiraz and a 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon.

Before we left, we purchased a 375ml bottle of Damascus sweet white dessert wine for 15 AUD.

At that stage of the tour I would probably have skipped the wine tasting and had a meal at the multi-award-winning Chesters Restaurant! LOL
