2020 Ravensworth The Long Way Around Chenin Blanc
Chenin Blanc has been on Bryan Martin's radar for a while.
The many faces and possibilities for the variety have intrigued him from afar. With a gap in fruit during 2020 thanks to smoke in the Canberra region, Bryan took the plunge and bought a small parcel from Margaret River, WA.
The wine was nursed to life with the help of the good folks at McHenry Hohnen. The fruit saw some skins, time in clay amphora, then was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
It's full-flavoured, honeyed with generous mouth-coating texture and a pure sense of minerality. It's a cracking example of the Loire Valley variety.Read more about 2020 Ravensworth The Long Way Around Chenin Blanc
2020 Stoney Rise Chardonnay
Joe Holyman is one of Tasmania's best Chardonnay producers.
His Holyman Chardonnay is one of the most collectable in the country these days. With the Stoney Rise, you get his signature style at a fraction of the price of his Holyman release.
The flavours here sit in the cooler end of the spectrum. It's a Chardonnay with lovely lively acidity and easy drinkability.
Dollar for dollar, this is very good buying for any Tasmanian Chardonnay fans.Read more about 2020 Stoney Rise Chardonnay
2020 Latta Tranquil Rose
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.Read more about 2020 Latta Tranquil Rose
2019 Arfion Full Moon Vineyard Pinot Noir
Dave Mackintosh has had a long-standing relationship with the Full Moon Vineyard. For some years now it has been the source of his highly touted Salo Chardonnay project in partnership with Giant Steps winemaker, Steve Flamsteed.
Here, Dave tackles the Pinot Noir from the same site and attacks it head on. Full whole bunch action through ferment, a mainlining of site with very little interference from grape to glass.
It's an excellent wine, clear, transparent and shows the fullness and fragrance of Yarra Valley Pinot Noir in a beautiful light.Read more about 2019 Arfion Full Moon Vineyard Pinot Noir
2020 Main & Cherry Sangiovese
So much great value vino coming from the cellar of Michael Sexton.
His range is jam-packed with vibrant, energetic examples of alternative varieties. Here he takes aim at Sangiovese and knocks it straight to the boundary.
The fruit comes from a biodynamically farmed vineyard in McLaren Vale. It's all Brunello clone which makes for a more structural style of Sangiovese traditionally. However, with gentle handling from Michael this version has maintained the silky drinkability that is the hallmark of McLaren Vale reds.
It's the perfect Thursday night pizza wine. Bellissimo!Read more about 2020 Main & Cherry Sangiovese
2019 Bondar Violet Hour Shiraz
The name 'Violet Hour' refers to the fading light owners Andre Bondar and Selina Kelly saw on the horizon as they picked the last bunches of Shiraz for their first ever release, the 2012 edition of this wine. A violet sky, a beautiful wine, and a new future ahead for the couple and their vines.
The Violet hour tastes as stylish as it looks, it hits that sweet-spot for all red wine lovers - a combination of elegance and power.
The pedigree of the McLaren Vale vineyard is second to none - it's one of the most respected sites in McLaren Vale where Seaview and Blewitt Springs meet. You get the lively, bright blue fruits of the sandy soils of Blewitt Springs with the power and structure of the Seaview terroir. It's a winning combination. The quality of the Shiraz speaks for itself.
Put simply, if you like McLaren Vale Shiraz with a fresh face - this is a must buy.Read more about 2019 Bondar Violet Hour Shiraz
