2021 Adelina Polish Hill River Riesling
Adelina is on a serious roll - another ripper wine here.
Their home is in the Clare Valley and though their range is beginning to roam a little further afield, the choice of a Riesling site was a no-brainer. This vineyard in the famous Polish Hill River sub-region of the Clare was planted in 2000, with perfect soils for producing first class Riesling.
There are many reasons that PHR is perhaps the most famous region in the country for producing Riesling; the consistency and the purity of the fruit not the least of them.
This Riesling sings of its home. It's beautiful drinking, and unbeatable value.Read more about 2021 Adelina Polish Hill River Riesling
2020 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 2020 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 2020 Dappled Appellation Chardonnay
2020 Unico Zelo Esoterico
A favourite amongst those who've tracked the Carters from the beginning: the Esoterico is the wild child of the UZ range...
With Brendan and Laura's experience with this style of wine a little richer now, the execution of this skin contact white is on another level.
Supercharged aromatics from the Zibibbo, Moscato Giallo, Gewurztraminer & Greco, with a little boost to the mouthfeel from their old friend Fiano. They nailed the recipe this year.
It's orange in colour and cloudy as all get out, it lives up to its esoteric name but with oodles of drinkability. That's what these skinsy whites should all be about.Read more about 2020 Unico Zelo Esoterico
2020 Minim Colbinabbin Nero d'Avola
Nero d'Avola in Australia can be confusing, the styles varying considerably as we work out the best spots for it to be planted.
Colbinabbin, or Colbo to the local wine crowd, may be a front runner for Nero d'Avola best in ground. The Minim version is inky, perfumed, flush with liqueur cherries, and spicy dark fruit on the palate. It's all upfront and tangy, with great energy.
The merest amount of sulphur pre-bottling is the only winemaking addition, and it has a brisk, natural feel with wonderful acidity. You should avola load of this in your wine rack.Read more about 2020 Minim Colbinabbin Nero d'Avola
2020 Koerner The Clare
Elevated, elegant Clare Cabernets collab, and that's enough alliteration already.
The base of this wine is a classic Clare Valley varietal marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, with a splash of Grenache, Carignan and Sciacarello. But contrary to what those varieties usually produce from the Clare, this is a lively, juicy red wine ready to be tucked into immediately.
It's the Clare Valley viewed through the eyes of two younger generation locals who want the wines of their home to be vibrant and accessible and they are nailing their mission.Read more about 2020 Koerner The Clare
2019 Spinifex Bete Noir
Husband and wife team of Peter Schell and Magali Gely have extensive winemaking experience in the south of France, which proves the inspiration for their unique wines made from predominantly Rhone varietals.
Unlike most of Spinifex's wines, 'Bete Noir' is 100% varietal, in this case, Shiraz.
But unlike many big and bold Barossa Shiraz, with 30% of the fruit coming from the Barossa's cooler neighbour Eden Valley this wine has remarkable perfume, elegance and balance.
This has a distinctive 'old world' feel with the vibrancy of South Australian fruit. A wine with an impeccable track record for a true Shiraz connoisseur.Read more about 2019 Spinifex Bete Noir
