Moondarra Warragul Pet Nat Lambrusco 2021

Lambrusco maestri is the grape. Lambrusco means good times. Well, it's not a direct translation, but it should be! Our mate Neil Prentice makes this vivacious pet nat with his gnarled, bare hands. We love it. Frothy, fizzy, dark in the glass but with so much freshness, crisp bubbles and general tangy brightness that you'd be hard pressed noticing the colour but for excitement. It's a brilliant rendition of the traditional style, a wine for red-and-white-checked table cloths and your favourite tomato pasta consumed by candlelight.

S'Express Winemakers Stupid Little Red 2021

Combining the super powers of cabernet franc and muscat from Great Southern, Western Australia... this is a superb red(ish) wine of vibrancy, juiciness, a wild streak and wickedly high drinkability. It comes from happy farmed vines, shows that pitch perfect medium weight, fine tannin and high acidity we expect from Great Southern reds while dialing in the cherry juice, cassis and sage-like leafy herbalness that well judged cabernet franc delivers. Perfect, fine wine on the dining table or super chuggable gear out of an esky. Ryan O'Meara of Express Winemakers has done it again. A first release wine here. 

Boomtown Red 2021

Nero d’Avola, sheeraz, merloooh. A blend. Juicy, lively red, very fresh feeling, sweet berry fruited but swamped in spice, dusty tannins and some green tea, leafy savouriness to finish. Fun, delightful, deserves a chill but goes ok without. Wilder style, but hyper drinkable.

Continental Platter Shiraz 2020

Yarra Valley wine from Principal team in Victoria. Juicy, just shy of medium weight, nice dose of peppery spice, green herb, web of fine, lacy tannins. Vibrant, thirst-quenching shiraz, if that is a thing. This is delightful drinking and though exuberant, sits well as a shy-ish style of wine. I like it. - The Wine Front

Dirty Black Denim Heathcote Grenache 2021

Heathcote the source for the ever interesting Dirty Black Denim wine at hand here. Contrarian wine in as much as it’s picked/made to low alcohol for Heathcote. Good times.

Great perfume here, sour cherries, pickled cherries, truffle and faintest game meat, dash of white pepper. Brisk and bright to taste, sweet-sour fruit character, a bit watery but the tannin grip and persistent, sour cherry-pomegranate juice characters are lovely, refreshing and the whole thing ends up being a really pleasing, lighter, skittish red. - The Wine Front

Domaine de Ferrand Cotes du Rhone Mistral 2020

Low yields, fastidious organic farming, natural winemaking are the calling cards of Domaine de Ferrand. Based in Chateauneuf du Pape, Philippe Bravay focuses on traditional practices and grape varieties to share the story this special part of the world. Mistral is an energetic blend of grenache, cinsault and syrah, that is hard to ignore. Supple yet cut with bright acidity, lots of perfume, this crispness that feels delicious at room temp but makes the palate go buckwild with a light chill. Upmarket  stuff, but frisky too. It seems to marry all things righteous in its style. And an antithesis to stuffy Rhone reds.
