Miss Zilm Riesling 2022

 

2022 is a great year for Riesling and this release from Miss Zilm just sizzles. 

Alkimi Wild Dreams Light Dreams 2022

Made for large pours and plentiful plates of food, give it a slight chill and you're away.

Barrett Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2022

 


A herbaceous and passionfruit driven Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc.

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.

Huntington Estate Special Reserve Grenache 2022

 

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.

Mesh Eden Valley Riesling 2022

 

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

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.

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. 

Yalumba Y Series Pinot Noir 2022

 

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.

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.

Robert Stein Half Dry Riesling 2022

 

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.

Robert Stein Dry Riesling 2022

 

John Mellencamp has the Cherry Bomb but Robert Stein has the citrus bomb. This Riesling is a belter.

Gundog Estate Indomitus Albus 2022

 

Something a little different - Hunter Semillon meets Canberra Riesling. Bang! The first whiff slices through you. A smart wine this.

Gundog Estate Gundaroo Riesling 2022

 

The second release of this off-dry Riesling courtesy of the Gundaroo vineyard in Canberra. This is a beauty!

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.

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.
