Flametree Pinot Rosé 2023


I like this Rosé purely for its simplicity. No fuss, it's cruisy drinking, and sometimes you need wines like that. Give it a run when you're worn down and feeling lazy.

Flametree Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2023


An easy-drinking Sauvignon Blanc Semillon blend (75/25) that will find favour among those seeking a simple yet tasty white wine.

Tenafeate Creek Riesling 2023


A serving of hot chips or some battered fish (or both) is the order of the day to help this Riesling along on its way.

Oxford Landing One to One Cabernet Sauvignon 2021


Really good Cabernet for not a lot, I thought this was the best in the range. Check this new One to One release from Oxford Landing.

Oxford Landing One to One Merlot 2021


An approachable wine without the glitz and glamour, sometimes you need a reliable wine like this Merlot from Oxford Landing's new One to One range.

Oxford Landing One to One Shiraz 2021


A bag of Burger Rings will partner this just Shiraz just fine.

Soumah Nebbiolo 2021


The Yarra Valley has proven to be a happy hunting ground for Nebbiolo, but I felt this release from Soumah was a little off the pace.

Soumah Marzemino 2022


Marzemino hails from northern Italy and is new to this tasting bench. The thrill of checking out new varieties is exciting and never ceases to amaze me. A smooth red wine that is not overly layered, it is a stand and deliver type with crowd pleasing appeal given its easy going nature.

Soumah Savarro 2023


Tight! Quite different to the releases tasted in the past, a lasso of acid around the edges keeps tugging leaving a firm imprint.

Slow Wine Co Gewurztraminer 2021


The first stop on my Orange adventure took me to the Slow Wine Co cellar door. A beautiful building in the historic town of Millthorpe, this was a great starting point.

Fierce III Dry Rosé 2023


A Rosé that throws a darker shade in the glass. I don't mind that to be honest given most Rosés are now the same pale salmon appearance. Like Aldi, it's good different.

First Ridge Wines Rosé 2021


This Rosé from First Ridge Wines calls for casual catch-ups, even a bag of sea salt chips as you watch the sun fall from the sky at day's end. It's a good drink for all occasions.

Rosby Wines Chardonnay 2023


A cellar door with a glorious aspect to catch the sunset, this Chardonnay is a tasty wine to enjoy while absorbing the numerous sculptures throughout the property. Art lovers will thoroughly enjoy their time at Rosby be it in the onsite gallery or wandering the gardens.

Rosby Wines Riesling 2022


Rosby Wines is a beautiful cellar door perched 590m above and tucked away in Mudgee's hills. Some suggest it is one of the best vineyards in the district. This is a solid Riesling made for soaking up the glorious afternoon sunshine - something easy to do at the stunning cellar door.

Rosby Wines Rosé 2023


This Rosby Wines Rosé is made with Shiraz. Personally, Shiraz is not my preferred grape to be used for this style of wine and it proves this once more with this release.
