Soul Growers Provident Shiraz 2021

 

Quintessential Barossa Shiraz. This is a great snapshot of the district in a glass. Always a respectable wine, the Provident Shiraz is well worth putting on your radar.

Tenafeate Creek One Tree Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

 

Loaded with roasted peppers, this is a big Cabernet.

Miss Zilm Pinot Gris 2022

 

From the Clare Valley sub-region of Sevenhill comes this tidy Pinot Gris made by Keeda Zilm. 

Running With Bulls Albariño 2022

 

A mighty fine debut from Running With Bulls and this small batch Albariño. It's just another reason to embrace something new this summer.

Golden Grove Estate Vermentino 2022

 

Ray Costanzo would have to be Australia's best Vermentino producer. Find me another winemaker that consistently delivers super high-quality wines with this variety. Try something new this summer and embrace delicious whites like this.

Oliver's Taranga Brioni's Blend 2022

 

Your face lights up immediately when you meet Brioni. Her infectious smile brightens the room and this wine, much like her, brightens the mood big time. Vibrant and energetic, it's a blend of Mataro, Touriga and Shiraz. Loaded with juicy fruit, it's all party shoes on and let's get dancing. More like this please - it is an absolute beauty.

Mesh Eden Valley Riesling 2022

 

Effortless. Big love for the flow of this wine. It just cruises about with ease.

Gundog Estate Smoking Barrel Red 2021

 

A blend of Hunter Valley and Hilltops Shiraz, I'm unsure why it's called a "Red" when Shiraz is actually what it is. It's a great drink by the way, make no mistake. 

Valentine Sauvignon Blanc 2020

 

Fancy piss. This is the type of Sauv Blanc you'd be slinging in Fitzroy with cool beats in the background. It's good gear.

Alkimi Wild Dreams Pinot Gris 2022

 

A certified organic Pinot Gris from Stu Dudine. The Wild Dreams showcases his inventive hipster side. This is Pinot Gris for those who ride skateboards with their hats on backwards.

Oakridge Vineyard Series Pinot Gris 2021

 

Some wines are better with food. That's not to say they are dud wines, but wine was made to enjoy with a meal and that will only enhance the experience. This Pinot Gris exemplifies that.

Paisley Wines Cashmere Riesling 2022

 


The Cashmere Riesling 2022 has had a little makeover with the labelling falling in line with others in the range. I must say, it's a good looking label too. From a little producer in Angaston, support small businesses like these and you'll be rewarded with quality wines. As for this, that chalky feel has me hooked. This Riesling is ace. 

Oliver's Taranga Tempranillo 2022

 

Brisket on steamed buns with a glass or two of this. Yes please! Tempranillo is made for food so load up a plate and fill your glass.

O'Leary Walker Gruner Veltliner 2022

 

The last O'Leary Walker Gruner I saw was way back from the 2015 vintage. It has been MIA since but the new winemaking team has brought it back and it's a good thing they did. This Gruner tops. Go here. 

Tenafeate Creek One Tree Hill Montepulciano 2021

 


Cool nights and some comfort food are calling. A generous Montepulciano from Tenafeate Creek.

Oliver's Taranga Grenache 2022

 

Dive in, swim, paddle, whatever. Stay a while, that's the message. Grenache glory from Oliver's Taranga.

Oakridge Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2021

 

Oakridge has the luxury of covering all price points. Slotting in at $30, this Yarra Valley range Pinot Noir is a solid wine. 

O'Leary Walker Clare Valley Shiraz 2020

 

This whisked me away last year and here we go again. Stepping it up a little more, what a fabulous drink this is!

Anarchy Wines The Catalyst Grenache 2021

 

These Anarchy Wines are smart. The Rosé really hit the mark and this Grenache isn't far behind. Quality wines from a small producer worth keeping an eye out for.
