As we learnt to enjoy wines from New Zealand and Australia while we were down under, we wanted to find a place in Switzerland where we could buy good bottles coming from this region. This shop is now found and located in the Hürlimann-Areal of Zurich, a few footsteps aside Google's offices.
We were warmly welcomed and several wines were available for tasting. The choice for Australian wine is great and we were surprised so see quite old wines, as we finally bought bottles being in average 10 years old at a reasonable price.
Our shopping list was:
- for New Zealand, a blend of Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon Glazebrook from Hawkes Bay - Ngatarawa Wines (2000)
- for Australia, 1 bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon et 1 bottle of Merlot, coming both from Margaret River - Xanadu
