A ripping example of Chenin Blanc that could be mistaken for a Fiano. Race to this.
If Welkin is the Vault in the sky, then this may be the key for entry. Such a juicy and crunchy number, it is such a versatile wine too. Drink as is or with a slight chill, an all-season Grenache if you will.
Prieto Picudo. Never heard of it? Nor had I until now. The exploration of emerging varieties never ceases to amaze and this release from the Granite Belt's Hidden Creek is a beauty.
The lighter of the three Mencia samples recently tasted, this release from Hidden Creek leans more towards the savoury spectrum and sits just under medium-bodied. This is a wine sure to win a new legion of fans.
A little cloudy - just the way Wes Pearson likes it. A textural rollercoaster ride to your happy place. It ducks and weaves while you sway and swerve. Yum!
A BIG shout out to marketing gun Tash Stoodley for sliding these samples from Clandestine Vineyards across my tasting bench. There are 6 wines under this label and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to check them out - their first release wines from organic and sustainably grown sites in Western Australia and South Australia. This Pinot Grigio is a ripping intro to the brand.
Lunch time done well. This is such a great drink. Savoury driven, this dry style Rosé brings the mouth to water.
Delicious! Absolute smash factor. Corrina Wright's best Grenache release for a couple of years I say. Cut loose and smiles (as big as Corrina's) will flood the faces around you.
A multi regional Vermentino blend - I haven't seen one of these before. A wonderful refreshment no less. Give me a large pour by the pool please.
