079-the-laneIt is not often we get to taste a Merlot as the South Australian Drink Of The Week but in episode 79 we did just that.

The Lane Vineyard 2012 Block 8 Single Vineyard Merlot from the Adelaide Hills is currently available through the Enomatic System at the Arkaba Hotel and we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Tim, pictured, enjoyed how smooth it was and was heard mumbling about cherries as he had his taste.

Steve talked about plums mid palate and cherries to the side with a soft, tannic finish.

You can hear the discussion around the 24 minute mark of the show.

Win a bottle of this wine

67-enomatic-arkabaThe Arkaba Hotel has partnered with us so that it can let our fellow wine lovers know you can safely order wine by the glass through their Enomatic System. So, instead of getting a tired glass of wine from a bottle that was opened days ago, which is a dreadful experience for serious wine drinkers, at the Arkaba they can guarantee freshness just like the winemaker intended.

To be in the draw to win this week’s wine, you only have TWO things to do:

1. Make sure you’re on our In Crowd mailing list. This little email gets sent every Friday morning with details about the week’s show. You can sign up here and once you’ve signed up you’ll be qualified to play any of our competitions for life.

2. Mention the term Lane on our Facebook Page, or in a tweet to @boringadelaide, or just email us using that term to [email protected]. Pick whichever one works best for you but do it BEFORE 11.59pm, Sunday, March 1, 2015, South Australian time of course, and on Monday we will email the winner with details of how they can collect their wine from The Arkaba.
