2019 Adelina Watervale Riesling
There are a pigeon-pair of Rieslings from the Clare Valley made by Col & Jen at Adelina.
The Watervale Riesling is traditionally a touch sweeter than the Polish Hill River. Col & Jen usually opting to leave a trace of sweetness in the finished wine for more approachability.
The 2019 release is smoking. It's drier than previous years, but the roundness and juiciness here is Clare Valley Riesling at it's mouthwatering best.
Balanced on a knife edge, this is a whip-smart Riesling release from the Adelina duo.Read more about 2019 Adelina Watervale Riesling
2019 Unico Zelo Slate Farm Fiano
If Unico Zelo's River Sands Fiano is for easy-drinking and the Alluvium is for the cellar / special occasion, then this Slate Farm Fiano release is made for food.
At least that's how Brendan Carter put it to us, and it's hard to argue with the #FianoMan when it comes to matters of this Italian sensation.
Hailing from the Polish Hill area of the Clare Valley, this has both flavour and structure in spades, and with its spicy, savoury persona is really without comparison when it comes to Aussie FianoRead more about 2019 Unico Zelo Slate Farm Fiano
2019 Dappled Appellation Chardonnay
If you like Yarra Valley Chardonnay, we've got a live one for you here.
The fastidious hands of winemaker Shaun Crinion have put together a cracking Chardonnay under his Appellation label from the 2019 Yarra Valley vintage.
It's not often you find a focused, flavour packed, handmade Chardonnay for these dollars but that's exactly what Shaun has delivered. This is made using the same methodology as his premium single vineyard wines. No corners cut. The value is ridiculous.
It's a whole lot of wine crammed into the bottle at the price. This is a benchmark for 'entry-level' Chardonnay in the Yarra Valley and it's never available for long!Read more about 2019 Dappled Appellation Chardonnay
2019 Hughes & Hughes Pinot Noir
As the demand for fruit in Tasmania increases, so too are the prices. The top value Pinot Noirs are becoming rare as hens' teeth, but here's one that you can fill your boots with if you want a stylish Tassie Pinot that won't bust the bank.
This is fruit from the Coal River and Derwent Valleys fermented in small batches in a bunch of different ways. Some whole bunch, some whole berry, lots of experimenting from winemaker Jonathan Hughes to see what works, then finally a blend of the best parts.
It's a great drink and remarkable value. There just aren't many Pinots at this price from the Apple Isle that will deliver the interest and satisfaction of the Hughes & Hughes.
The perfect mid-week Tasmanian Pinot Noir.Read more about 2019 Hughes & Hughes Pinot Noir
2017 G.D. Vajra Langhe Rosso
From the producer: The Langhe Rosso is a red blend of heirloom varieties, including Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto and the rare Freisa and Albarossa. An authentic expression and a true introduction to Piemonte, this is a gorgeous wine to pair with food.Read more about 2017 G.D. Vajra Langhe Rosso
2018 Spinifex Moppa Shiraz
This is a deviation from the usual company line from Peter Schell.
Schell made his name as a trailblazer for the 'New Barossa' style, a more 'European' slant on the traditional Barossa powerhouse. But a good winemaker is guided by the fruit, and this particular batch of fruit from an old Moppa vineyard was set decidedly to a more 'classic' Barossa tempo. Big, dark and brooding, Schell says it reminds him of the great classic wines of Penfolds and the like.
And so this separate bottling has come to be. It celebrates a single site that Schell has vinified since 2005. Enthusiasts of old-school Barossa Shiraz, this will be right in their wheelhouse.Read more about 2018 Spinifex Moppa Shiraz
