2021 Margan Breaking Ground Albarino
Originally from the north-west coast of the Iberian Peninsula, Albarino is well suited to the warm, maritime climate of the Hunter Valley. Planted around 2014 by the Margan family, these vines are now mature enough to showcase the unique terroir of their estate vineyard.
Left on skins for a few days till the ferment kicked itself off, the resultant wine is full of lovely orchard fruit, and bright juicy aromatics, with great phenolic tension from the time on skins.
Texture is the by-line here, crunchy, mid-weight wine, with interest, and a point of difference; sign me up.Read more about 2021 Margan Breaking Ground Albarino
2020 Badenhorst Secateurs Chenin Blanc
While most of the fruit for this wine is estate-grown, the cousins Badenhorst do get some fruit from their neighbours, who share a similar dry-grown organic philosophy with their organically-farmed vineyard.
Low-yielding vines are really the key to what makes this wine shine; fruit intensity, palate weight, and texture are the hallmarks of what makes great Chenin, and this wine has those in spades.
Talk of terroir can sometimes be a bit redundant, however the quality and interest in this the Badenhorst Secateurs Chenin, must always circle back to their amazing site and viticulture.Read more about 2020 Badenhorst Secateurs Chenin Blanc
2021 Billy Button The Affable Barbera
If you have never tried the Billy Button wines, this is a great introduction to what Jo Marsh is all about: Alpine Valley fruit, masterfully handled, delivered with incredible value.
Over the last few years this has garnered a reputation as one of the most drinkable Barberas in the country. The key here is balance. Where other Aussie Barbera can be a little wishy-washy, this hits the nail on the head. Jo says, "It is now one of my most popular wines and one of my most consistent" and it rightfully has been the fastest of her range to sell out each year.
Don't miss out on this charismatic little red from one of the Alpine Valleys' finest.Read more about 2021 Billy Button The Affable Barbera

2019 Pietraventosa Primitivo Volere Volare
This is a stunning and high toned red from the talented winemaking hands of Marianna Annio and Raffaele.
Taking organically grown fruit from their vineyard, they transform the variety into a deliciously plush and well balanced mid-weight wine ready to crack open any night of the week.
Red and black fruits entwine with fine tannins, with a cutting line of natural acidity to hold all that fruit in check. Truly delightful, and stellar value!Read more about 2019 Pietraventosa Primitivo Volere Volare
2021 Adelina McLaren Vale Shiraz
Col McBryde at Adelina wanted to make a Shiraz that was a little different to their usual one - a bit more dark and broody, but still keeping the classic Adelina style.
So Col sourced some certified organic fruit from the McLaren Vale, coming from a ripper site in Kangarilla managed by two impeccable growers, Yanagrra's Michael Lane and Pete Fraser. We all know what great fruit and a deft touch equals.
It's got a focus more on dark fruit flavour than their Clare Valley reds, with chewy tannin and a bit more of a broodiness to its personality. Still inherently Adelina in style, it's something a little different - and incredibly delicious.Read more about 2021 Adelina McLaren Vale Shiraz
