Vino Intrepido Wolf in Sheep's Clothing Pinot Grigio 2020

 


James Scarcebrook is kicking out some pretty smart wines. His nomination in the Young Gun Top 50 is well deserved too. His Vino Intrepido label is one well worth sticking in your black book. Pinot Grigio lovers will enjoy this.

Vino Intrepido Nero's Fiddle Nero d'Avola 2020

 


Pretty aromas flood the nose and ensure you sit up. What an intro!

Lienert Estate Roussanne 2020

 


I love these Lienert labels. They ooze shelf appeal. Little gold lightning bolts adorn this bottle - clear glass, a black label and gold highlights draw the eye. Smart wine this too.

Paulett Wines Brielle Grenache 2020

 

A ripping Clare Valley Grenache that hails from the Watervale subregion. Delicious and then some, I'd dive into this with pike.

Jack West Grenache 2020

 

Light, bright and dancy Barossa Grenache.

Paulett Wines Polish Hill River Chardonnay 2020

 


Chardonnay for the beach. There's a sense of cool and calm about this. Think green apples and sea spray.

Alkimi Zero Additions Méthode Ancestrale Syrah 2020

 


A different take on Syrah without going way OTT. Zero additions, the exploration of texture and edgy styles from Alkimi continues its impressive growth.

d'Arenberg The Olive Grove Chardonnay 2020

 


The Olive Grove Chardonnay is normally a blend of Adelaide Hills fruit and McLaren Vale. This release is solely from the latter, and it shows.

Tim Smith Grenache 2020

 


Love Grenache? Introduce yourself to Tim Smith. You need to. This is slick. Luxurious even. A sweet ride through the Grenache pleasure zone - akin to Smith cruising the back roads of Vine Vale on his beloved Triumph. Wind through the hair, the rubber hugging each turn, this is a sweet ride.

Coriole Montimaro 2020

 

Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Negroamaro and Nero d'Avola co-fermented to deliver an Italian superhero - less the cape.

Lyons Will Estate Riesling 2020


I skirted the edge of the Macedon Ranges just over 12 months ago on my way through the Victorian countryside. In hindsight, I wish I spent some time in the district. Lyons Will Estate owner and winemaker Dr Renata Morello got in touch recently and sent a few of her wines to sample - gee I wish I knew about these guys earlier. This is a fabulous Riesling.

Alkimi Syrah Rosé 2020

 

Such a good slurp that embraces food. The quality and consistency across the Alkimi range is impressive.

Mitchell Wines Watervale Riesling 2020

 


Riesling lovers put this on your list. So refreshing. So moreish. Where's that seafood?

Coriole Negroamaro 2020

 

Terrifically moreish, here's an Italian worth breaking bread with. A wonderfully expressive wine.

Glen Garvald by Levantine Hill Rosé 2020

These new Glen Garvald wines from Levantine Hill are focused on using varieties uncommon to the Yarra Valley. I must admit, I did a double-take when I saw the makeup of this wine. Apart from Pinot Noir, I thought I was in McLaren Vale.

Coriole Nero 2020

 

An absolutely beautiful wine. Pretty as. Run to this.

Alkimi Whole Bunch Marsanne 2020


Skinsy Marsanne. Whole bunch goodness from Alkimi. Last year's release sold out in quick time and I can't see this 2020 version being any different.
