2020 Konpira Maru Admiral Mt Midoriyama: Total Victory Pet Nat
The Pet Nat flood continues!
This latest offering from Alastair and Sam at Konpira Maru is fantastic and a freight-train of fun to drink.
Three varieties from the Chalmers vineyard in Heathcote combine forces here in a classic (*ahem) blend of 75% Sagrantino, 20% Vermentino and 5% Dolcetto. There are only really two rules when you make Pet Nat: make it fizzy and make it delightful to drink. The boys have nailed it on both accounts.
It's not a profoundly complex wine but it will absolutely get you coming back for more.Read more about 2020 Konpira Maru Admiral Mt Midoriyama: Total Victory Pet Nat
2019 Les Fruits Peu de Peu Sauvignon Blanc
Some exciting expressions of Adelaide Hills wines coming from the hands of Tim Stock and the shed of Commune of Buttons.
Tim sourced a small parcel of biodynamically grown Sauvignon Blanc from a Gumeracha vineyard, left it on skins for two and a half week before it all went to old oak, no additions aside a dab of sulphur at the end.
It's such an interesting take of Sauv Blanc from the Hills, a riot of tropical fruit with a hint of savouriness.
This is a tasty treat that will thrill natural wine fans as well those who just want a Sauvignon Blanc that packs a punch!Read more about 2019 Les Fruits Peu de Peu Sauvignon Blanc
2019 Dormilona Chardonnay
Jo Perry's 'lazy bones' winemaking style is yielding some excellent results in Chardonnay from Margaret River.
This is fruit picked from Jo's naturally farmed vineyard in the Wallcliffe sub-region. It shows pure, persistant fruit, with only the suggestion of support from a demi-muid and some older barriques.
It's a natural feeling Chardonnay of utter class and sophistication. An original and authentic take on a classic Australian wine staple.
This is Margaret River Chardonnay presented naked and unadorned.Read more about 2019 Dormilona Chardonnay
2019 Latta Ex Nihilo Pinot Gris
Owen Latta has a great touch with Pinot Gris.
He manages to pack an incredible amount of flavour into a relatively light frame.
It's a Pinot Gris built to be more of a serious/complex beast. It's got body and booty and weight. It's the real deal. Gris strutting its stuff.
A lick of skin contact lends a slight onion skin colour, the texture here is really something else.
If you want to see Pinot Gris made as a fine wine, this is the perfect place to start.Read more about 2019 Latta Ex Nihilo Pinot Gris
2019 The Other Right All Fruits Ripe Pinot Noir
The All Fruits Ripe Pinot Noir is 70 cases of wild and delicious Pinot Noir from the Adelaide Hills.
No additions of any kind during the winemaking process from Alex. He has got the dark art of preservative-free winemaking down to a fine science. The lack of SO2 allowing the fruit to show itself in all its unkempt glory.
If you enjoy a walk on the wild side of Pinot Noir then Alex's is a must try and at just 12.50% ABV, it's the perfect option for your next picnic tipple.Read more about 2019 The Other Right All Fruits Ripe Pinot Noir
2019 Commune of Buttons Syrah
The Commune of Buttons Syrah is a Syrah for those who like vibrant and elegant reds.
Made without any additions, this vintage is bang-on for the style that Jasper and Sophie want to make. It was picked early looking for freshness and fermented with 80% as whole berries and bunches.
It's got the vitality of youth and enough grunge to keep it interesting. A cracking Syrah which will be a huge crowd pleaser, guaranteed.
A beautiful, elegant version of Adelaide Hills Syrah - the wine is irresistible.Read more about 2019 Commune of Buttons Syrah
