About The Pack

Finding red wines that a suitable for drinking in the warmer months can be a bit tricky. 

You don't want some 15.0% alcohol monster Cabernet when the sun is shining, you want something cool and refreshing that can be popped in the fridge or the esky for a few minutes to take the edge off.

Here's six reds we'll be drinking this Summer. 

Perfect for any occasion.

2018 Arfion Spring Pinot Noir

Dave Macintosh loves his Pinot Noir in all shades and colours. The thirst for a young, vibrant 'nouveau' style drove him to release this, the Spring Pinot Noir.

For insane drinkability in a Pinot Noir, that's loaded with character, this is one of the tastiest of its style getting around.

It does the job Dave wanted - its irresistible from first sip.

A bouncy Pinot Noir brimming with jubilant fruit, this will keep you coming back for more and more and more.

Knock a slight chill into it and guzzle with abandon.

2018 Punt Road Gamay

Tim Shand has done some excellent things with the Punt Road range since taking the reins. Pumping his energy and skill through every vein in the brand. This is the latest exciting develop on his watch. Tim takes on Yarra Valley Gamay with a vengeance. The vines were grafted over from Viognier in 2014.

The grapes were fermented as two separate batches: the first de-stemmed and fermented as whole berries as is the custom in the variety's spiritual home in Beaujolaise, the second was kept as 100% whole bunches for added structure and complexity.

Intelligent winemaking, here. The finished wine is just a pleasure to drink.

It is undeniably delicious to the last drop.

2017 Aller Trop Loin Summer Red

Here's a featherweight Grenache from Heathcote for those who seek Kosher wines.

It's very light, crunchy and jubey in style. 

The perfect thing to knock a chill into on a warm Summer's afternoon. 

Juicy red fruits, a tickle of spice and all things nice.

2017 Adelina Eternal Return Nebbiolo Barbera Dolcetto

The colourful tapestry of the Adelina range finds a new colour here with the addition of an Italian-styled table wine built for pizzas and good times.

The three varieties; Nebbiolo (60%), Barbera (20%), and Dolcetto (20%) get along famously in this wine.

It's light, fresh and filled with the savoury tannin and spice that you'd expect from these quintessential Italian varieties.

The kicker is the sweet, crunchy fruit at the core which makes this so drinkable any night of the week. Another great release from a SA brand that is constantly in evolution.

2017 Somos Tintito

This is a mystery red blend from Ben and Mauricio at Somos wines.

It's a compilation of predominantly red Rhone varieties with a few other bits and pieces thrown in for fun. The aim here was to create "A wine driven by primary berry fruit, savoury spice and acid line. Textural light red." and they've nailed the MO.

This is a top value little red and is squarely in no-brainer territory for those chasing a medium-bodied red that is loaded with charisma.

2018 Mada Wines Syrah Nouveau

The modern Australian Shiraz/Syrah is a much different beast to that of twenty years ago. Thank the wine gods for the evolution of style, it's allowed for great wines like this to come into existence.

Hamish Young has got a good eye for fruit. For this fresh, nouveau take on Syrah, he sourced from a vineyard he describes as "Possibly the warmest, hungriest site in Canberra." It was fermented as 100% whole berries for max aromatics, cold soaked for a week, fermented for two weeks, then pressed to a combination of ceramic egg and a French puncheon.

There's also a dash of Grenache and Mataro thrown in for a little extra 'pop'. Of this vintage, Hamish says - "this is brighter, more detailed and crunchier than last year's - it's what I want the wine to be." This is a highly perfumed, exuberant style of Syrah, which is reliant on impeccable fruit for its appeal, not oak. If you love the trend towards medium-bodied, youthful reds, this is going to be right up your alley.
