Failing at Life Partly Cloudy Pet Nat 2019
Friulano, also known as sauvignon vert from the Mornington Peninsula. This lemony goodness spent 2 days on skins before being pressed, racked and bottled for fizz to begin. Welcome to the party F.A.L - we're vibing your tangy fresh fizz..
Yugen Floating On Clouds Chardonnay 2020
Tim and Brodie are part of this wave of young Australian winemakers pushing the boundaries and trying to make some noise. These 2 guys are doing everything to establish Sunbury as a proper wine region, and they are doing a fatastic job at it. Knowing the region like the back of their hand, they source the fruits from what they consider the best vineyards in the area.
A little unoaked chardonnay, bright, fresh and fun.
Somos Naranjito 2020
This is verdelho to knock your socks off. Indeed, this could be the world’s most interesting and complex expression of the much-maligned variety. It spends 180 days on skins; from biodynamic farmed vines. Incredible texture, chalky, powdery, intense and chewy, but all that chomp comes with a juicy, internal flow of mandarin juiciness, pithy grapefruit, wild herb complexity. It rushes across the palate wild and unfettered but presents with so much interest. Thirst-quenching and crazy at once. Love this. Such a ride.
Ngeringa Rosé 2017
Aromas of mandarin and citrus blossom, fresh wild mixed forest berries, crisp fresh red apples and hints of our classical syrah spice which carries over onto the pallet. Long lingering flavours of lively berry fruit, it has savoury depth and silky texture. “This wine still fits the mould of being the perfect 'Pink for Grown-ups’ "- Erinn Klein, Winemaker
Express Winemakers Drinking Wine 2020
Well, the label kind of says it all here. It's a wine to be drunk without thinking, the definition of table wine basically. Cheap and cheerful, light and fun. Grenache, mataro, pinot noir, sauvignon blanc, shiraz and riesling are all dancing together to bring the fun to the party. Smash it fast.
Balmy Nights Red 2020
Hey, this one comes from sangiovese which was grown in the Adelaide Hills. It's a light and crisp style, shows some of that delicious and refreshing sour cherry fruit character, tart acidity, good dose of spice and a little corkscrew of tannin. It feels like a fresher more vibrant version of Chianti but more clean and pure. Best drunk out of tumblers and carafe with a light chill.
