Kerry and I survived another day with 698 other passionate Shiraz drinkers and 150 winemakers at the 2011 Great Edinburgh Shiraz Challenge.
As usual, we attempted to try lots of different Shiraz styles and break the day up with our old favourites to reset the palette.
This amounted to us tasting about 41 wines over 4 hours.
Many of Kerry and my favourites hit the best of show this year.
It was also great to catchup with Karel again from Lengs & Cooter who made it to 35 on the list this year.
It took a day to re-hydrate, but it was well worth it.
