2018 Weingut Brand Wilder Satz
A zippy and energetic white blend from Germany. Think grapefruit pithy alcoholic lemonade. If you love Partida Creus VN White, then this is for you. Pair with Sunshine, and sand if you can!
2018 Benjamin Taillandier Blanc
Whites from the Languedoc are often high in alcohol and heavy on the palate, NOT hereno sireee. A blend of grenache blanc, grenache gris & terret gris in equal proportions. Citrus and green pears with wisps of texture and freshness. Roast chook or grilled corn or even both make magic with this wine.
2018 Les Terres Promises Apostrophe Rose
This will instantly transport you to sitting on a terrace, eating seafood and looking at the Mediterranean Sea. A classic Provencal blend of grenache, carignan and cinsault
Bright with soft fruit and a bone-dry finish. This is NOT your classic Stepford wife rose.
Perfect for a Sunday afternoon, sitting in the backyard with Iggy’s bread and freshly grilled prawns. As good as, if not better than being in Provence.
2016 Philippe Chevarin Les Sentinelles Gamay
A little savoury, a whole lot crunchy, cranberries, sour cherries and a mineral core. Delicious.
Chill for about 15 minutes before drinking (IF you can wait). Have it with pretty much anything, but Liz recommends Danielle Alverez’s Salmon with harissa-ish oil, yoghurt, coriander & cauliflower (recipe in her insta stories) So very good together in many levels!
2018 Moraza Tempranillo
Cherry cola, raspberry liquorice, dried herbs and a whiff of alpine botanicals. Juicy, sort of fleshy palate thing happening. Sloshes around feeling quite transparent but stiched into crisp tannins and a sluice of minerally acidity underlying. So fresh, so good, compelling drinking. This is how tempranillo soars. – The Wine Front
A red you could drink on its own or with such a wide variety of food. Over the cooler months Liz often drank this at home with chorizo and chickpea stew!
2018 La Petite Baigneuse Trinquette
The most defining characteristic of this wine is the terroir/sense of place that shine bright from start to finish. A blend of grenache and carignan. Plums, rosemary and charcuterie notes, this medium bodied wine has a line of schist minerality running through it. With cassis and sweet red fruit dancing tango with chinotto and amaro flavours, its really well balanced with darts of freshness.
Whether you’re into lentils or lamb, this is a practically perfect Spring red
