2018 Save Our Souls Sauvignon Blanc
This has to be one of the most interesting Aussie Sauvignon Blancs out there.
Deliciously juicy fruit was hand picked from Brown Brook Estate vineyard in the Yarra, and was pressed to tank straight away to retain all that freshness. It went through full malo, and aged on its lees for almost a full year.
It comes out as a dream of tropical fruit, soft herbal notes and a slight nuttiness, with savoury saline characters and a cutting acidity keeping it all in check.Read more about 2018 Save Our Souls Sauvignon Blanc
2021 Linnaea Allora Cortese Dell'Alto Monferrato
The Linnaea project is a fascinating one. Between winemaker Michelle Edwards and agricultural scientist Daniel Fischl, this husband and wife team have carefully chosen vineyards and varieties from around the world that they want to work with, to make the kind of wines they like to drink.
The two travel to Piemonte each year to produce a fantastic value Barolo and this, their awesome take on Piemontese Cortese.
Like so many Italian white varieties, Cortese can be a little neutral if made without much inspiration. However, with a clever use of skin contact, as is the case here, Cortese can become a salivating, textural delight.
Purpose built to accompany the catchings of the local Piemontese fisherman, this is a great buy for something a little different.Read more about 2021 Linnaea Allora Cortese Dell'Alto Monferrato
2022 Domenica Nebbiolo Rose
This has quickly become one of the top Rosé wines in Beechworth.
It's made from juice from the famous Domenica Nebbiolo. Fermented in barrel for texture, some solids came along for the ride to lend weight. This is a serious savoury Rosé with great backbone and drive.
There is precious little Nebbiolo fruit on the Domenica vineyard, and even less assigned to this wine, but it's a blinder.
If you're looking for a more serious, food-friendly style of Rosé, this is a great option.Read more about 2022 Domenica Nebbiolo Rose
2022 Renzaglia di Renzo Nuovo
This is a cracking light red (or dark rose, if you wish) for guzzling around the table in good company.
Made from a blend of Italian and French varieties, like Barbera, Primitivo, Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon, it comes together as a highly quaffable, easy-going red built for anywhere, anytime.
Lively, crunchy, lightly herbal, filled with red berries and with a light spritz at the finish, it's a great wine to pop in the fridge or esky for extra refreshment.Read more about 2022 Renzaglia di Renzo Nuovo
2021 Alfredo Maestro Vina Almate
Viña Almate was the name of the first vineyard Alfredo ever planted. This is a cracking Tempranillo made from old bush vines grown on various plots from 700m asl in Peñafiel to 1000m asl in the Valtiendas mountains.
All hand harvested, as is the only way with these vines, the fruit comes into the winery as perfect whole clusters. Alfredo ferments this wine as is - bunches and all.
It results in a lighter, spicier, more fruit forward style of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) which is meant to be drunk in its youth.Read more about 2021 Alfredo Maestro Vina Almate
2020 Sherrah Shiraz
No McLaren Vale wine range would be complete without a hearty, robust Shiraz.
Alex Sherrah knows how to make a top Shiraz from this region. Having been in charge of the famous wines of Coriole for many years, Alex has a wealth of experience which he drew on to make his Sherrah Shiraz.
This is a classic version of the variety, filled with dark berries, chocolate and coco-like tannins. It's a richly flavoured wine, densely concentrated and full bodied. It will be perfect for those who enjoy a red with a bit of grunt.Read more about 2020 Sherrah Shiraz
