These are all delicious and highly regarded wines in their own right, and are definitely wines that make you say 'Wow'!

If you want to broaden your wine horizons there is no better way than with this totally unique tasting pack. Feeling adventurous? Well, you’ve come to the right place!

2018 Wildman Wine Astro Bunny Pét-Nat

The Astro Bunny is a playful Pet-Nat by the hands of Tim Wildman, MW.

The fruit is grown by Ashley Ratcliffe at Ricca Terra Farms in the Riverlands. The three varieties: Muscat, Vermentino and Nero d'Avola all finding a happy home in the warm Riverland climate.

This is fun and fizzy, a little funky and positively loaded with personality. This spritzy wine that will charm any fan of this hugely popular wine style.

2017 Les Fruits Loiraine 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 some on skins, 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 imbued with soft phenolics and a touch of savoury complexity.

Absolutely worth the look for those on the hunt for whites with a bit more going on.

2016 Quealy Turbul Friulano

Quealy owners Kathleen Quealy and Kevin McCarthy were pioneers of skin contact white wines in this country, and the Turbul Friulano is a super-duper example of the style.

It's exotic and wild in flavour, but it's the texture and structure that defines this wine. In this way it shows more like a red - it's really quite powerful and grippy but delicious at the same time! 

Mike Bennie declared it "Fantastic example of the genre here, complex, detailed refreshing, glorious to drink."

Great option for a dinner party wine to wow your friends with something different!

2018 Latta Tranquil Nebbiolo Sangiovese Rosé

This wine is made from Nebbiolo and Sangiovese fruit which is picked specifically for making Rosé.

These Italian varieties suit a more savoury and structured style of Rosé, but as with all of Owen Latta's wonderful creations, the drinkability here is off the charts.

This Rosé is light as a feather, yet persistent at the same time. It's a delicate wine with plenty of nuance, no additions and a bucket load of personality. 

Impossible to not fall in love with, it's a Rosé to make you blush.

2018 Brash Higgins CINS Cinsault

This has been a popular recent addition to the Brash Higgins range. Following on from Brad's pursuit of freshness in Cabernet Franc, here he picks up the lesser-known Rhone variety Cinsault and runs a similar course.

There are few varietal Cinsaults in McLaren Vale where Shiraz and Grenache take the lion's share off attention for Rhone varieties, but after this release there may be a few more popping up before you know it. 

It's light, crisp and uber refreshing. The perfect red for warmer weather that is begging for a chill.

Brad didn't make much so you'll need to be quick if you want to snap up some of this beauty for yourself.

2018 Brian Three Pinots 375ml

Things are never what they seem when the Brian wines go to bottle.

The whites are made like reds, so, you guessed it, the only 'red' in the range is made like a white.

The Three Pinots are Noir, Gris and Meunier and you can bet your life if they could get their mitts on some Pinot Blanc, that'd be in the mix as well.

It's a red that feels as light as a feather to drink and works its best moves when chilled down.
