Oxford Landing Sunlight Shiraz 2021

 


The Sunlight by Oxford Landing collection is an answer to the global trend in moderation, health, well-being, and sustainability. Globally, 24% of consumers are actively reducing their alcohol consumption by switching to a lower alcohol option.

Of the two Sunlight wines, I prefer this Shiraz. Much like its sibling, it is quite light on the flavour, but there is more to speak of here. 

Oxford Landing Sunlight Chardonnay 2021

 


With low and no alcohol wines gaining popularity, a new range of wines from Oxford Landing has hit the shelves. These Sunlight wines will be served at the Sunset Cinemas this summer I'm reliably informed.

Yalumba Galway Vintage Shiraz 2020

 


A little radiant star of mid-week delight coming at you from the Barossa. You can't go wrong with this for $18. Yes!

Zema Estate Cluny Cabernet Merlot 2018

 


Mr Reliable for $25 RRP but the website has it at $20 - that's a sweet deal. That cheeky mid-weeker is looking pretty good.

Polka Lilly Pilly De-Alc Sparkling Cuvee 2021

 


The no and low alcohol market is going gangbusters at present. But do you want to drink wine or something made with the addition of grape juice concentrate? If you want the latter with some Lilly Pilly extract for good measure, maybe this is for you? You won't find me in the queue.

De Bortoli Re-Write The Rules Tempranillo 2021

 

Tempranillo from the 'Victoria' region. Roll the dice and see what you get one can assume. An approachable red to sit beside your takeaway meal.

De Bortoli Re-Write The Rules Pinot Noir 2021

 

A new label from De Bortoli. A Victorian Pinot Noir but the detail on the label is scant. But it is said to be 'fragrant, fun soulful and vibrant'.

Mount Broke Albarino 2021

 

I tasted this Albarino at the recent Hunter Valley Legends and Tourism Awards media famil. I'm guessing this is Mount Broke's first release of the variety.

The Hydropath Society Gruner Vetliner 2021

 

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.

L'Artisan Le Rosé 2020

An easy-going Rosé from Languedoc.

L'Artisan Le Chardonnay 2020

The weight of this bottle may be the reason cargo ships are taking so long to traverse the seas at the moment. Damn, there is some glass in the frame...

L'Artisan Le Sauvignon Blanc 2020

An imported Frenchie to add to the pile for those that can't get enough of the already flooded Sauv Blanc market. Spending four months on lees, this goes ok.

De Bortoli Organic Shiraz Field Blend 2020

 

Barbecues and pizza night just found an extra bit of energy with this field blend from De Bortoli. Organically farmed in the Riverina region, red fruits are plush and skip along.

The Natural Wine Co Lightly Sparkling Rosé 2021

The new The Natural Wine Co. Lightly Sparkling White and Rosé are organic, low in alcohol, low in calories, vegan and preservative free. “They’re somewhat of a niche wine, with few in the market,” says Canowindra's Jason O’Dea. “They allow people to ‘stay longer’. The wines are perfect for those looking to lower the amount of alcohol they are consuming, or simply for those wanting a refreshing, enjoyable wine with a touch of fizz.”

Screw the cap and that little pop whispers refreshment. Yes! As the team at The Natural Wine Co say, "Enjoy our new world feel good wine."
