Mallaluka Zibibbo Chardonnay Riesling 2021
Tropical salad fruits grown in red earth. Full skins but you wouldn’t know it. Put it in an esky and head to the beach. - Sam Leyshon, wine maker
aller trop loin Psychedelic Experimentations 2021
Crafted from approximately equal parts of Bendigo verdelho, Yarra Valley chardonnay, Yarra Valley sauvignon blanc and Yarra Valley pinot gris, which were co-fermented (each harvested at different times) on skins over a 28 day period.
Aromas of cumquat, apricots, persimmon, clementine, green mango and Turkish delight with flavours of mandarins, tangerine, orange blossom, wild strawberries, Meyer lemons and sumac.
Named after the lyrics (the only two words!) in Shelford Road by Thomas Schumacher, specifically the Devilfish remix, this is a fascinating and textural wine with unique aromas and flavours and a big personality. - aller trop loin
La Violetta Lounge O 2021
This one is a blend of vermentino, pinot gris, gewurztraminer, gruner veltliner and other stuff. It’s an orange wine with chew and pucker but heaps of vitality and freshness. Indeed, it sits at the lighter end of the spectrum of orange wine, in a way, delivering incredible refreshment factor and tang, rather than deep, orangey vibes. Andrew Hoadley, the winemaker who always wears a red shirt, is so good at his trade, finding that balance between interest and drinkability. And Great Southern wines are awesome. So we say.
