Article by Terry Durack of The Sydney Morning Herald: Greenhouse by Joost March 1, 2011

15/20

“Corn, not porn.” “Roll my oats.” “It’s all about the soil.” The messages scrawled over the recycled T-shirts worn by staff at Sydney’s newest pop-up restaurant are relentlessly on-message. Greenhouse practically appeared overnight on the water’s edge in The Rocks and is currently scheduled to disappear at the end of this month.

Originally a Melbourne initiative by Dutch-born florist, artist, builder and environmentalist Joost Bakker in 2008, the Greenhouse was invited to Perth, where it morphed from temporary to permanent, putting young, tousle-haired chef Matt Stone on the map (and on the telly, paired against Neil Perry on Iron Chef).

Tim White At The Australian Financial Review And Foster E Rocco Rosé 2010

Blog No Comments

Tim White at The Australian  Financial Review L3 (14-16 January 2011) reviews  Foster e Rocco Rosé  2010.(Heathcote, Vic).

A cracker too:  smells of dried herbs pips and peel and savoury, crunchy radish. Fab palate with pippy and peel flavours, plump, in the middle and a dry finish. Touch of sweetness in the middle, balanced by acidity and struck-match savouriness. 93/100 $25.00 (screwtop).

Wine Of The Week: Foster E Rocco 2010 Nuovo Unoaked Sangiovese

Blog No Comments

Review by wdwineoftheweek.blogspot.com

Former Lake House sommelier Adam Foster is proving a dab hand at the winemaking caper with a series of delightfully drinkable wines to his name (and that of fellow sommelier Lincoln Riley in this case). This deliciously different wine really took my fancy. It’s a perfect choice for those who enjoy good reds but like to chill them a little – an unoaked sangiovese made from Heathcote fruit that has the typical bright sangiovese dark cherry fruit characters, plenty of earthiness and just a hint of sweetness on the palate. It’s simple, rustic, relatively low in alcohol (12.8%) and food friendly. A lot like drinking grape juice – but a whole lot more fun. $30.
