2019 Ravensworth Shiraz Viognier
"A stellar wine on a stellar run."
Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
The Ravensworth Shiraz Viognier has become one of the most sought after wines in Canberra, owner/winemaker Bryan Martin now consistently producing a wine of glorious complexity from his home grown fruit.
Bryan's Shiraz is Northern Rhone Valley inspired, with a splash of co-fermented Viognier adding perfume and mouthfeel to what is a remarkable Shiraz. Given Bryan Martin's day-job as assistant winemaker at Clonakilla where he, alongside Tim Kirk, produces Australia's foremost Shiraz Viognier, it comes as no surprise to see this wine reach such great heights.
The 2019 looks sensational once again. With no 2020 vintage made due to bushfires, this is the last chance to snap some up for the next two years. If you fancy cool climate Shiraz then this is simply a must for your cellar and/or dinner table. Exceptional value.Read more about 2019 Ravensworth Shiraz Viognier
2020 Somos Tintito
This is a delicious medium bodied red blend from Ben and Mauricio at Somos wines.
It's a blend of Grenache, Pinot Meunier, Nero d'Avola and a bunch of other bits and pieces built with easy drinking in mind and an 'Italian-ate' feel. The aim here was to create "Vin de soif, made for easy drinking with interest." and they've nailed the MO.
This is a top value little daily drinker and is squarely in no-brainer territory for those chasing a medium-bodied red that is loaded with charisma.Read more about 2020 Somos Tintito
2020 Unico Zelo Halcyon Days Nero d'Avola
It's only been on the Australian radar for a relatively short time, but the Carter's picked up the Nero d'Avola ball and are running with it at pace.
The Halycon Days is the second iteration of a single site Nero from the Carters. After four years spent scouring the Riverland for a site worthy of an individual bottling, an organically farmed block sat atop clay was just what they were looking for.
This is a finer-boned expression of the variety than the Pipe Dream - perhaps more 'Pinot-esque' version of Nero and delicious thing to drink. Spent five days on skins, wild-ferment and matured in tank before a youthful release.Read more about 2020 Unico Zelo Halcyon Days Nero d'Avola
2020 Ricca Terra Aglianico
Aglianico may turn out to be one of southern Italy's better exports to Australia.
The ultimate experimenters at Ricca Terra arms have got behind the varietal, planting numerous clones, seeking complexity to match grape's natural power.
This new release is full of sweet, dark licorice and blood plum flavours. It's serious wine, with some quality oak apparent and a rugged savoury finish.
As with all the Ricca Terra wines, the value-for-money is extraordinary.Read more about 2020 Ricca Terra Aglianico
2019 Inkwell Infidels Primitivo
The Infidels is Primitivo sourced from the immaculate Inkwell vineyard in McLaren Vale.
Over the last few vintages it has gained a reputation for being one of the country's most drinkable/loveable alternate varieties, and is often the fastest-selling Inkwell wine, and understandably so.
The oak is set firmly to the background of the mid-weight palate and the perky red fruits and spice of this variety on display for all to see. The fruit weight, tannin, and acidity playing perfectly with each other.
Simply delightful drinking.Read more about 2019 Inkwell Infidels Primitivo
2020 Adelina Grenache
Adelina are kicking some serious goals as of late. Their stylish packaging, the amazing old vine fruit they utilise, the 'house style' of the wines, all are coming up trumps for this Clare Valley couple.
Once again Col McBryde's new release fits squarely in the 'new wave' of Grenache sweeping the Australian wine industry - fine-boned and high-toned, a bit like Col himself.
The fruit stem from a stunning 80+-year-old vineyard on the Adelina property is left on skins for 20 days in concrete vats prior to pressing to neutral barrels. This extracts maximum character from the fruit in its purest form. Freshness and age-worthiness reign supreme here, and there is even a rock, mineral feel on the finish.Read more about 2020 Adelina Grenache
