These "drink now" Nebbiolos are just fabulous to kick back with. Sure, the real deal with a bootleg of age is epic gear, but the insight these provide as a result of astute winemaking fills my bucket.

Break Free Little Wing Shiraz Noir 2022


Carbonic maceration is a sexy thing - thousands of little ferments all happening in one big ferment. It's a flavour orgy of sorts. This Shiraz/Pinot Noir blend comes from the Adelaide Hills, and if low-fi wines are your thing, get this on your radar. 

Clandestine Vineyards Pinot Grigio 2022


Here we have a Pinot Grigio that is ready to refresh and delve into all at the same time. This is a great expression from Clandestine Vineyards.
