2019 Latta Quartz Bianco
This is another home run for this exceptional, original winemaking talent.
Here's a great example of Owen Latta's explorative winemaking mind. This is a fascinating depiction of Sauvignon Blanc from a quartz riddled vineyard in Moonambel, Pyrenees.
It's treated oxidatively, with a long and slow ferment followed by lees contact and full malo-lactic fermentation, and zero SO2 added at any point. It's an exciting wine for those who are exploring the multifaceted nature of Sauvignon Blanc and a great representation of the originality of this awesome Victorian producer.Read more about 2019 Latta Quartz Bianco
2019 Domaine Naturaliste Artus Chardonnay
"Sophisticated and seductive. Beautiful."
- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
After 20 years observing the area, Bruce Jukes decided all the Chardonnays from Domaine Naturaliste would be crafted entirely from the Gin Gin clone.
He selected a vineyard in the South of Margaret River that had Gin Gin cropped in a particular way, with little light flooding through the canopy. He wanted flavour intensity without the tannins that come with over-ripeness and he got it. The result of his search are the twin Chardonnays Artus and Purus.
Artus is the voluptuous seductress. The powerhouse Margaret River Chardonnay with a gymnast-like balance. 40% new oak, richness and zip in equal proportion.Read more about 2019 Domaine Naturaliste Artus Chardonnay
2020 Ochota Barrels Surfer Rosa Rose
You know summer is on it's way when Taras Ochota rocks in with his Surfer Rosa.
This is a Rosé wine made from an organically farmed block of Pinot Noir in the Adelaide Hills with a splash of Grenache from the same block as the Green Room.
Here, Taras picks the fruit a little earlier, while the berries are bristling with acid, blushed with colour from the Australian sun.
This is ready and raring to tackle any Sunday afternoon.
This wine makes you feel like grabbing a board and heading for the ocean.
It's a simple, straight-up Rosé. And sometimes, the simple things in life are the best.Read more about 2020 Ochota Barrels Surfer Rosa Rose
2020 Bloody Hill Villages Panton Hill Pinot Noir
Bloody Hill Pinot Noir is Rivar Ferguson-Mayer's lighter, fresher version of the variety.
The fruit is from the Panton Hil in the Yarra Valley. It's fully destemmed, naturally fermented and aged in oak for only a few months.
This is a fresh, unfettered expression of the variety built for drinking early in its youth.
It's a softer, more fruit-driven style of Pinot Noir than the wilder more whole-bunch influenced examples made by his father Timo.
Excellent value and made in only small quantities.
Tiny volumes were made so get in quick!Read more about 2020 Bloody Hill Villages Panton Hill Pinot Noir
2019 Domaine de Ferrand Cotes du Rhone Mistral
Philippe Bravay is one of the finest small-scale artisan producers in the famed Chateauneuf du Pape sub-region of the Southern Rhone.
With organic farming underpinning his whole operation, Philippe has amassed a huge cult following for his pure, unadulterated expressions of Grenache and Grenache blends from Chateauneuf and Cotes du Rhone.
The Cotes du Rhone is bright and open for business. You can see the level of care taken in producing even Philippe's 'entry level' offering.
The vines that produce this wine were planted as far back as 1945 and offer a level of depth and complexity you rarely fine in reds from the Cotes du Rhone.
Grenache and GSM lovers, gon't hesitate.Read more about 2019 Domaine de Ferrand Cotes du Rhone Mistral
