The Other Right Nuance Pinot Noir
How good are Alex and Galit from The Other Right? Some of the best humans out there. They source from amazing, organic vineyards, they produce wines of nuance, vitality and personality. Here’s Adelaide Hills pinot noir through their incomparable lens. While it ends up being one of their lightest and freshest styles, don’t underestimate its interest.
Pinot Noir. It might be made of a French grape variety, but it is probably the closest to a pizza wine we’ve ever gotten. Simple but nuanced (get it?), it is a very enjoyable red wine. - The Other Right
Good Intentions Frankie
Cabernet Franc from Robe located approx. 120 kms from Mount Gambier on the coast with a mix of red terra rossa and sandy soils over shallow limestone. The Franc is de-stemmed and then left on skins until desired fruit flavours are reached (approx. 10 days).
This variety is late picked, cold soaked naturally and fermented long and slowly in our cool climate winery. The wine is then racked and minimal sulfur added at bottling. - Good Intentions
Forgive us for offering you South Australian Shiraz that looks nothing like South Australian Shiraz. This is shy of medium weight, crazy aromatic, herbs on just ripe red berries, dashed with sweet and peppery spice, lively and juicy and crisp at once. A refreshing red destined for a good chill and drinking from tumblers. We like Cre very much, they do interesting wine from good places with verve and energy.
Ephemera are straight up awesome wines. The suite of things to drink from Ephemera always delights. Here’s a pretty but squeaky-textured white of gentle skinsy nature and some tangy, tart acidity. Vermentino goes all ‘lime squeezed in tonic water’ kind of vibes but shifts gears here pulled tight on chalky ribs of light tannin. It zips and zings in the palate. It’s so aromatic. And fresh. Damn straight delightful.
"A different but wholly good take on sangiovese. Interesting producer here. Easy to like wines. GilGraves family vineyard is in Axedale and located somewhere between Heathcote and Bendigo while the wines are produced at the Boomtown collective facility with insight from the family. Nice.
Bright and juicy, fresh and light, tannin AWOL but slurpy drinkability through the roof. Sweet cherry juice, sprinkle of cinnamon spice, lick of kirsch, a little kiss of amaro through the finish. Just so darn pleasing to drink!" - www.winefront.com.au
Cinsault, mataro, grenache, less syrah. Possibly one of the most sincerely thought about ‘entry level wines’ on the planet. Set your guns to stun.
Fragrant wine, pretty and floral, red currants and raspberries. Palate has crunch and freshness, big tang of acidity, some ferrous notes, vermouth-like acidity. Brisk and fresh. Frisky. Lovely summery red. Simple done so so well. This should be on high rotation, if you can get some. - www.winefront.com.au
