GSM is always a good barbecue wine option. This release from Paisley Wines has a meaty profile that asks for it.

Chapel Hill Abacus Shiraz 2021

 

This is a great Shiraz for the budget conscious. It's dense and generous - get your claws into kinda stuff.

Chapel Hill Abacus Mourvedre Rosé 2022

 

Straight up and down, there's not a lot of excitement or get up and go with this Mourvedre Rosé. 

Chapel Hill Organic Small Batch Shiraz 2021

  

The organic wine market continues to surge and this small batch Shiraz from Chapel Hill is their red wine contribution. Good gear, it flows with ease.

Hutton Vale Farm Eden Valley Riesling 2022

 

Wines like this fly the flag and give another reason to demand that you need to drink more Riesling. Another to add to that ever-growing 'must try' list.

Chapel Hill Organic Small Batch Chardonnay 2021

 

McLaren Vale is a lot of things but a Chardonnay hotspot is one thing it is not. More muted than the Abacus Chardonnay, this is quite a simple drink.

Chapel Hill Abacus Chardonnay 2022

 

Michael Fragos got in touch to share some new wines. I haven't seen any wines from Chapel Hill for some time so it was good to get back in the saddle. Here we have a Chardonnay with some richness but it's not OTT.

Pewsey Vale Lighter Riesling 2022

 

A new addition to the Pewsey Vale range, this Lighter Riesling was picked early to tap into the lighter alcohol market. It's a clever wine too.

Keaton Pinot Grigio 2022

 

This is a really good drink. Keaton means where the hawks fly, so the back label tells me. Produced on the south coast of NSW, it was great to see this new label come across the Qwine tasting bench.

Anarchy Wines The Misfit Rosé 2022

 

Great gear from the Barossa's Anarchy Wines. In the zone, this bone dry Rosé is a fab drink for 25 bucks.

Lightning Tree Sassy Lassy NV

 

A blend of Viognier and Verdelho makes up the Sassy Lassy. A neat, uncomplicated wine.

Tomfoolery Wines Young Blood Grenache 2022

 

The first 2022 Grenache to hit the Qwine tasting bench doesn't disappoint. A joyous and juicy number, this is bursting with slurp factor.

Lightning Tree Verdelho 2021

 


Verdelho has found a happy home in the Queensland wine regions and this release from the South Burnett offers that slice of paradise.

From Queensland's South Burnett comes this tasty Tempranillo. Lightning Tree is the product of the district's long-standing viticulturist Peter Stewart and his wife Vikki. Smart gear, pizza, burgers and barbecues are sorted.

Clandestine Vineyards Prosecco Rosé 2022

 

Attractive on the eye, this is a crowd-pleasing Prosecco from the King Valley ready to wet your whistle. Solid aperitif gear, think the sun, sarongs and seafood.

Huntington Estate Pinot Noir Rosé 2022

 

Talk about dry. This is bone dry and damn delicious. A fab Rosé from Huntington Estate.

O’Leary Walker Watervale Riesling 2022

 

Deliciously fragrant, this is a super expression of Watervale Riesling. From a year that mirrored the outstanding 2002, get in the queue for this ripping 2022.
