Adelaide Hills Chardonnay from Ox Hardy with a dollop of cream that lands smack bang in the middle of the palate.
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.
The Adelaide Hills is a Mencia hot spot at the moment. There are a vast array of interpretations of the variety which builds the curiosity factor. This release from Nepenthe is a spicy and dense rendition.
15% whole bunch, 30% new French oak and 100% juicy. This is the second Pinot Noir release from Clandestine Vineyards and it's a vibrant and perfumed bomb of pleasure. Well played.
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.
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.
Lunchtime wine. The approachability of these Paisley Wines never ceases to impress. This Fiano is sourced from the Adelaide Hills and tosses a blanket of texture across the palate to lure you in.
