2022 is a great year for Riesling and this release from Miss Zilm just sizzles.
A mighty fine debut from Running With Bulls and this small batch Albariño. It's just another reason to embrace something new this summer.
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.
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.
Tim Stevens has jumped on the Grenache bandwagon and found a comfy chair. A long time fan of the variety, he has planted a heap more vines in recent years. This is a juicy number and a damn fine take on the variety.
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.
To be released in early 2023, winemaker Sam Wigan is pretty excited about this and sent a pre-release sneak peek my way. This is another Y Series bargain worth keeping an eye out for.
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.
Half dry but 100% supreme awesomeness. I could have more than my fair share of this wonderful wine. Time and again it smashes it and the 2022 release is no different.
John Mellencamp has the Cherry Bomb but Robert Stein has the citrus bomb. This Riesling is a belter.
Something a little different - Hunter Semillon meets Canberra Riesling. Bang! The first whiff slices through you. A smart wine this.
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.
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.
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.
