Gundog Estate Riesling 2020

 


Normally sourced from the Canberra district, the bushfires of 2020 put an end to that. The fruit for this release comes from the Yarra Valley. There are some small plantings of Riesling around the region (a surprise to many), this one comes from De Bortoli's Dixon Creek site.

Push back those bifold doors and sit on the deck as you chillax with the afternoon breeze on your face and a generous pour of this Blanc in the glass.

Everything you want in a Rosé and more. Absolute bliss.

The Wine Peddler Shiraz 2020

 

I didn't see that coming. Already a 2020 Shiraz! We're not here to play chess obviously. A new label from Chateau Yaldara getting on the front foot and busting a move.

Ravens Croft Sagrantino Rosé 2020

 


A Granite Belt vintage ravaged by the elements saw winemakers seek fruit from other regions. This Sagrantino was sourced from Chalmer's vineyards in Mildura. A tasty wine, it seems to have hit the jackpot with the 'sold out' sign nearly posted - not bad considering it was released not too long ago.

The Wine Peddler Field Blend White 2020

 

A new range of wines from Chateau Yaldara aimed at a a new market. It's pretty good drinking too.

Howard Park Miamup Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2019


 A quick whiff and this has that summery feel about it. Fish and chips by the water if you know what I mean.

Paisley Wines Cashmere Riesling 2020

 


Such a refreshing drink. Another reason why you need to ditch the Sauv Blanc and make Riesling your drink of spring and summer.

Dirt Candy The Pink Panther Pet Nat 2020

 


Pet Nat on the wild side in more ways than one. A blend of Chardonnay, Semillon, Verdelho and Shiraz.

Yangarra Estate PF Grenache 2020

 



Bright cerise in the glass, the fruit presents itself like a vortex. Mulberry and blueberry fruit swirl before drawing you in. A delicious slurp.

O'Leary Walker Polish Hill River Riesling 2020

 

Classic Clare Riesling. Classic Polish Hill minerality. Big love for this, my preferred of the two new Riesling releases from O'Leary Walker.

O'Leary Walker Watervale Riesling 2020



I say the same every year, it's great to be able to compare the Watervale and Polish Hill River Rieslings from O'Leary Walker. Here's another fab Watervale release.
