2020 Jauma 1000 Fires
Named in honour of the great Austrian social architect, painter and dreamer Hundertwasser (100 waters). A 50/50 blend of muscat and chenin. Fun enough to be juice, textured enough to sit at any dining table. What a ripper. - James Erskine, Jauma
2019 Frizzante! Rosato Pet Nat Syrah Rose
Fresh to death here, a fizzy pink to join the family of Frizzante. Refreshing raspberry, subtle strawberry and juicy jubes, this is a fizzy-banger that will satisfy every palate AND your wallet. Choice !
2020 Chateau Comme Ci Comme Ca Vin De Lies
All the lees and juice left over from final racking to bottle. Here. In this wine. From organic farmed fruit. Of semillon and chardonnay and pinot gris and merlot. Settles in tank, goes to bottle. Magic. Feel the rhythm.
Beautiful pale garnet colour all shimmery and seductive in the glass. Watermelon juice and cranberry tang. Faintly yeasty nutty savoury. Echo between bouquet and palate. Light, though slightly slick, nice bitey amaro-like acidity to finish. Thirst quenching wine. Delicious.
2020 Doom Juice x Sindy Sinn Rose
It’s 60% sauvignon blanc and 40% pinot noir, with the sauvignon blanc skins sitting on top of the pinot for a few days. From Marlborough, New Zealand. Sustainably farmed, naturally fermented, no filtering or fining. The most smashable rose on the planet, this week at least. - The Wine Front
2017 Frankly, Bob Made This Shiraz
Held off releasing for ages, evidently. Semi-carbonic shiraz, from Tamburlaine Vineyard. Rustic, savoury characters, earthy, dusty, ferrous notes, red berries, raspberry notes. Smoky, dusty, but light and fine too. Ultra light, actually, more chilled-heavy rose than anything. Vivacious style, laden with iron filing and gamey-earthy characters. - The Wine Front
2020 Roland by Sally Rainbows
Mourvedre off Rosnay in Canowindra here. De-stemmed, weighted boards keep the cap below juice and wet. Old skool.
Savoury and electric with mineral-charged acidity. Dark cherry, some ferrous and animale-game meat characters in the mix, leafy herbs, poised and pretty with a nice fluffy furr to tannins. One of those wines you say 'energy' around and people nod sagely. Drunk at a light chill this is bloody magic. - The Wine Front
