2019 Combes Willow Lake Pinot Noir
"It’s a bloody ripper."
- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
Willow Lake vineyard has become a happy hunting ground for younger generation producers in the Yarra Valley looking for quality fruit from the Upper Yarra.
In 2019, Oscar Hermann got his hands on a small parcel of Willow Lake Pinot and he's made it absolutely sing.
This is a silky, seductive red which is light in frame but huge in impact. It's a soft, feathery pillow of sweet cherry and strawberry fruit with a fine rasp of whole-bunch derived tannin that draws long through the finish.
It's fantastic driking and brilliant value given the demand for high quality Yarra Pinot such as this.

2020 Ochota Barrels Texture Like Sun Sector 7
In classic Taras style, there is nothing 'classic' about this blend. It's a playful bits 'n' pieces blend of Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, & Syrah which is wicked to drink.
The blend sounds weird but as the name suggests (a line from a song at Taras and Amber's wedding), this is all about texture. This is less about the varieties and more about the final product, a kind of 'greater than the sum of its parts' scenario.
It's a wine made without a second thought of convention. Throw out the rule book and make something awesome and just like its namesake song, it's a wine that will just get stuck in your head.
Spring is almost here, here's a little sunshine in a bottle to kick things off.Read more about 2020 Ochota Barrels Texture Like Sun Sector 7
2020 Unico Zelo Fresh A.F.
Few wine ventures are as committed to the idea of sustainability as Brendan and Laura from Unico Zelo. Their championing of Italian varieties, particularly Nero d'Avola and Fiano, comes from their belief in their suitability to Australia.
Nero is a particularly hardy grape and it thrives in warm, dry climates. So, here they take the fruit from one of the warmest and driest regions in the country and make a glugable, slurpable red which is ideal quaffing for just about any night of the week.
This is their brightest and freshest feeling Nero to date. A dash of old vine Zibbibo (white wine) adding lift and a super zippy crunch of acidity. It's great drinking at a great price and a little left of centre. More inventive stuff from this energetic couple.Read more about 2020 Unico Zelo Fresh A.F.
2019 Billy Button Rosso
The rest of the Billy Button range is about exploring singular varieties from the Alpine Valleys.
Here winemaker Jo Marsh combines Dolcetto, Durif, Refosco and Tempranillo to make something slurpy and juicy which you can drink any night of the week.
The Dolcetto gives you some lovely fine tannin, the Refosco lends bright aromatics and sweet red berried fruit, Tempranillo and Durif lend depth and body.
It's the perfect mid-week quaffer to slosh into tumbers and watch a movie with a cheese plate.Read more about 2019 Billy Button Rosso
2018 Somos Aglianico
The Somos wines are the product of two enthusiastic young winemakers looking to make wines from new and interesting varieties grown in classic regions. Benjamin Caldwell and Mauricio Ruiz Cantu are the duo behind them, smart guys with some tasty things in production.
This is their delicious Aglianico sourced from a small vineyard in McLaren Vale. It was fermented as 50% whole bunches, striving for a perfumed and medium-bodied version of this late-ripening Italian variety.
Totally more-ish and one of our favourite Aussie Aglianicos.Read more about 2018 Somos Aglianico
2019 Bondar Junto GSM
In only a few short vintages this dynamic couple have carved out a niche for their eponymous label as one of the most exciting and in demand wineries in McLaren Vale.
Drinkability is writ large across the range. The 'Junto' (Spanish for 'together') is a wine made for easily enjoying with friends and family. The 2019 version is just as good as ever.
The Grenache component a much less than in previous years (88%), the power of the 2019 vintage bringing a richer, more silky wine to bottle on release. This is as delicious as medium-bodied reds get from this part of the world.
Incredibly versatile and impossibly more-ish, Andre and Selina have done it again.Read more about 2019 Bondar Junto GSM
