  • Wines, Beers and other Imbibements

    We are very proud to have received a

    Two Wine Glass Rating (Excellent) from

    Gourmet Traveller Wine for the last two

    years in a row and we continue to push

    and develop our list each year in an effort

    to improve.

  • As to other beverages beers, ciders, fortified wines,

    spirits and liqueurs we love them all. We have tried

    here to give you a list that has both depth and breadth

    so you can try all sorts of new drinks you may never have

    seen before. Feel free to ask about something if you are

    unsure or just go ahead and experiment!

    a bit about our drinks list . . .

    Cheers! Ian and Al

    Here at The Avoca we are passionate about both food and drink.

    We strongly believe that to really enjoy food at its best

    you need to combine it with the right beverage. Similarly,

    to get the most from a wine or craft beer and appreciate

    all of its complexities, you need to accompany it with

    good food.

    We also firmly believe in supporting local producers

    wherever we can. Thats why nearly every wine in our list

    is from the local regions and why so many of the beers

    are regional too. It is also one of the reasons why we use

    a great many locally sourced ingredients in our cooking.

    But we dont support local wines just for the sake of it;

    the wines of the Pyrenees/Grampians region are fantastic.

    They have unique qualities that set them apart from

    other Australian wines and so we commend them to you

    and hope that you enjoy them as much as we do.

    Clover Hill Cuve Ros

    Tamar Valley, Tasmania

    Although the fruit is from Tasmania, this wine is made right here in the

    Pyrenees by Taltarni. Because it is so good, we have decided to include it in

    our list. It is a really beautiful blushed sparkling.

    Tamar Valley, Tasmania

    Sparkling Wines(all from the Victorian Pyrenees unless noted otherwise)

    Blue Pyrenees Estate Luna Pinot ChardonnayDelicious off dry non-vintage fizz from one of the region's best makers

    Taltarni Blanc de BlancsTaltarni's first 100% Chardonnay sparkling. Lovely wine

    Extremely well made methode traditionelle brut. 100% Chardonnay. Earlier

    vintages of this wine have been multiple recipients of national and international

    his fine sparkling wine pedigree in this amazing methode traditionelle

    Blue Pyrenees Estate Viognier

    These Rhone varieties are also set to do well here in the Victorian Pyrenees.

    The wine is lovely and buttery but with great acid balance and length.

    Quartz Hill ViognierUnctuous and delicious, this wine displays all of the hallmarks of great

    Viognier. This variety has a great future here in the Pyrenees.

    Dalwhinnie Moonambel Viognier

    Mount Langi Ghiran Cliff Edge Pinot Gris

    Best's Great Western RieslingGrampians, Victoria

    Blue Pyrenees Estate Chardonnay

    Dalwhinnie The Hut Chardonnay

    A savoury mix of 79% Sauv Blanc and 21% Riesling with extended skin contact

    to yield the first Orange wine from the Pyrenees.

    Pyren Vineyard Little Ra Ra Roopa

    Grampians, Victoria

    The benchmark for Pyrenees Chardonnay. Beautiful balance between fruit and

    oak. Oozes class.

    M. Chapoutier Domaine Tournon Landsborough Riesling

    Blue Pyrenees Estate Sauvignon Blanc

    Taltarni Fum Sauvignon Blanc

    White Wines(all from the Victorian Pyrenees unless noted otherwise)

    Mount Langi Ghiran Cliff Edge Riesling

    Dog Rock Reserve Riesling

    Good example of Pyrenees Riesling, with delicious fruit, citrus overtones and

    good acidity. Nice weight on the palate.

    Grampians, Victoria

    Crisp and fresh with lovely forward fruit. Typical herbaceous characters of

    Sauvignon Blanc. Great with seafood.

    A more full-bodied style named after the Sauvignon Blanc wines from the

    Pouilly Fum region in France. The wine spends some time in charred oak

    barrels giving it a different structure and palate.

    Grampians, Victoria

    Degraves Riesling

    Best's House Block Riesling (Off-dry, Kabinett style)

    M. Chapoutier Domaine Tournon Pyrenees GrenacheFrom the masters of Grenache in the Southern Rhne, this wine has great

    intensity, delightful palate weight and a lovely, fruity, elegant finish.
