Balmy Nights White 2020
Produced from the unusual white grape variety schonburger. It's a bright, vivacious, crunchy white of electric acidity, lemon on green apple tang and a little savoury nuttiness underlying. It drinks a charm, summery but with a little extra under the hood. From a happy vineyard in the Hunter Valley. Cool gear.
Mas Que Vinos Los Conejos Malditos Blanco 2018
As our resident Spanish speaker translated, "the naughty bunnies".
Indigenous Spanish varieties, this wine spends 6 months on skins in neutral vessel. What emerges is a succulent, earthy, aromatic and savoury.
The biggest threat to these old vines are not the extreme conditions they face each year - whipping winds, blistering heat, bitter cold, lack of rain - it is rabbits. Cute as they may be, the destruction they cause is massive - taking out entire hectares of vineyards each year. whole cluster natural fermentation of arien and malvar in amphorae.- Mas Que Vinos

From an excellent vineyard in the much-maligned, often-overlooked but wonderful wine region of Swan Valley on the outskirts of Perth. Old vines, ruddy soils, warmth and old school winemakers aplenty. This from a younger generation winemaker with a great grasp on making brilliant natural wines. Juicy then crunchy to finish, this is a thirst-quenching red of great vitality. Cherry-fresh. Cranberry tang. Spice. So easy to drink but with so much interest. Can drink cold too.

Ashley Ratcliff helped out with the fruit source to help out Sam Leyshon after smoke out from 2020 bushfires.
Somewhere between crunchy and grippy, juicy and dark fruited, touches of game meat, sweet earth and then calling card mulberry and cranberry jelly fruitiness. Yummo. Such an easy thing to drink, good shape, heaps of freshness, so, so easy to guzzle. Ultra charm.
