Gruner Veltliner has found a happy home in the Adelaide Hills. Take a whiff of this wine from the Hydropath Society and you can't help but want to imbibe. A fabulous drink and a blistering bargain, find it.

Susuro Farfella Nebbiolo 2021

 

Soft and lacy, this Nebbiolo from the famed Pyrenees Malakoff vineyard is well worth a look. It's a disco for the senses. An excellent example of what modern Nebbiolo looks like, you can't help but feel upbeat in its presence.

Yalumba Vine Vale Grenache 2021

I had the opportunity to taste this during the week with Yalumba's red winemaking gun Kevin Glastonbury. Such a cool and charismatic gent, Grenache flows through his veins. His meticulous approach is evident in this new release Vine Vale Grenache.

Lienert Estate Roussanne 2021

 

I've said it before, these Lienert wines have such impressive shelf appeal. This is a damn good Roussanne too - a win-win.

Long Gully Estate Pinot Noir 2021

 


My first look at Long Gully Estate - a small Yarra Valley winery that has had its fair share of turmoil in recent years. It's great to see small businesses like this bouncing back. I like this Pinot. It's a respectable drink.

Ox Hardy Grenache 2021

 

Bright red cherries and raspberry fruit, this Grenache from Ox Hardy just sizzles.

Soumah Hexham Vineyard Chardonnay 2021

 

Hexham. I dig it. Big time! A site that keeps hitting the high hats time and again I find, this is a fabulous Chardonnay for $40.

Ayelsbury Estate QO5 Gamay 2021

You could be mistaken that a Shiraz was in your glass. This is bigger and more robust for a Gamay than I expected, that's for sure.

Soumah Chardonnay d'Soumah 2021

 


Sunsets under fairy lights set the scene for this entry-level Chardonnay from Soumah. There is a buzz about it.

Oakridge Horst Riesling 2021

 


From a 1970s planting of Riesling and named in recognition of the Oakridge founder, find some spicy Thai or Malaysian and you're set.

Lienert Estate Grenache 2021

 

It's juicy. It's vibrant. It's delicious! The first Grenache off the Lienert Estate block and it's a belter.

Leeuwin Estate Art Series Sauvignon Blanc 2021

 

A sizzling expression of Sauv Blanc from Leeuwin Estate. Clean and crisp, bright acid whips through the mouth.

Yalumba Organic Viognier 2021




Part of Yalumba's Organic range, this Viognier is sourced from the Riverland.

Yalumba Y Series Viognier 2021

 

The Rick Astley of the Yalumba Y Series range. It's never gonna give you up, it's never gonna let you down and it's never gonna run around and desert you - only because it's readily available. A crazy good Viognier for the money.

Hesketh Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2021

 

Lots of yum factor from Hesketh Wines highlighting the Lobethal sub-region of the Adelaide Hills. Perched 420 metres above, this Chardonnay was barrel fermented in second-fill French oak and aged for 8 months prior to release. A smart wine.

Leeuwin Estate Art Series Riesling 2021

 

Clever. Very clever. A Riesling that is bursting with freshness for now yet has some tension readying itself for later. But I'm happy with it now to wash down some calamari or fresh prawns and some sea spray blowing on my face. Excellent buying for the asking price!

Hesketh Regional Selections Riesling 2021

 

A Riesling that left me a little flat. There is not too much to report here sadly.
