2018 Brave New Wine Magical Animal Chardonnay
The Magical Animal is the more traditional Chardonnay from Brave New Wine.
The fruit is sourced from a stunning single vineyard in Porongurup, Great Southern. The fruit is foot stomped by Yoko and Andries then sent to a single brand new French oak puncheon for wild ferment. The resultant wine is a raucous and wild version of Chardonnay, flush with ripe fruit and toasty oak.
It's the kind of Chardonnay that blows your hair back.

2018 Ari's Natural Wine Co. Orange
This is a fascinating skin-contact wine from NSW from a promising young up and coming natural winemaker, Tony Zafirakos.
This combines Chardonnay from the Southern Highlands and Sauvignon Blanc with from Murrumbateman. The fruit hangs out on skins for three months on skins in barrel before pressing, then sent back to barrel for a sleep before bottling.
It's refreshing, pure and comes with a lovely tactile grippiness in the mouth.
No sulphur, no additions of any kind and absolutely delicious to drink.
Only 35 dozen made.Read more about 2018 Ari's Natural Wine Co. Orange
2018 Gentle Folk Rainbow Juice
Rainbow Juice is a wine that walks to the beat of its own drum.
The 2018 iteration is a blend of 23 varieties, both red and white (and one that Gareth doesn't even know the name of), all sourced from the Basket Range in the Adelaide Hills.
All the varieties were fermented for a short time on skins then basket pressed to oak to complete fermentation. No additions of any kind found their way into the bottle, this is pure Rainbow Juice and it's seriously tasty stuff.
It's a breezy wine, wild and untamed. It screams sunshine and good vibes. Gareth describes it as Adelaide Hills spring in a glass...Read more about 2018 Gentle Folk Rainbow Juice
2018 Lucy M. Summer Of Love
Anton van Klopper never stops experimenting.
Each season offers him a new set of opportunities for creating new cuvees. From the 2018 vintage he's made this delightful kaleidoscope of a wine. It's made up of about a third Pinot Gris, about a third Gamay, then a fruit salad of half a dozen or more other varieties for the remainder.
As the name suggests, this is a breezy, easy drinking pinkish wine that works wonderfully with a slight chill.Read more about 2018 Lucy M. Summer Of Love
2018 Dormilona Malbec
A new addition to the Dormilona family this year with the inclusion of the first varietal Malbec from Josephine Perry.
It's soft, slurpy and super floral. The chunky tannins of the Malbec grape tamed by Jo's gentle winemaking hand.
The fruit is all grown organically and it was made without any additions besides a touch of sulphur to keep it safe in bottle.
A big, bold, beautiful Margaret River red, perfect for a cool night spent sipping quietly on your back deck.Read more about 2018 Dormilona Malbec
2018 Jilly Wines Lone Ranger Touriga
Ever on the hunt for something new, here, Jared Dixon (winemaker behind the Jilly label) takes one of the alternative varieties thriving amongst the diverse viticultural sites in New England.
Here is Jared's take on the classic Portuguese variety Touriga Nacional. It's ripe, luscious and has an explosive floral perfume that jumps from the glass. Jared's soft touch in the winery has balanced this perfectly.
With all the interest around Jared's brand, this unique take on Touriga won't be around for long.Read more about 2018 Jilly Wines Lone Ranger Touriga
