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

Cassegrain Edition Noir 2019

 

A melting pot of sorts that brings Syrah and Pinot Noir together from three regions - Canberra, Central Ranges and the Hilltops. An interpretation of the Hunter River Burgundy perhaps that seems very much in vogue at the moment.

Gundog Estate Rosé 2021

 


A Rosé made from Shiraz and Cabernet, I found the Cabernet to really stamp its authority. It's the type of wine more suited for a casual BBQ than sipping on the sun on its own.

Shaw Wines Winemakers Selection Cabernet Merlot 2019

 

There is some energy about the way this skips along. A medium-bodied blend (57/43) that will please more than a few.

Gundog Estate Smoking Barrel 2019

 



Pan fried chorizo and then some. Gloriously meaty. Prosciutto and pancetta too. Give me the meat board and a large glass.

Sapling Yard Entrechat 2017

 

Entrechat is a ballet step where the dancer leaps into the air rapidly crossing their legs behind. I tried it while tasting this wine - not a drop spilt! This is a traditional method sparkling made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir sourced from the Canberra district.

Sapling Yard The Curmudgeon Shiraz 2019


A new winery to come across the Qwine raising bench. These wines from Sapling Yard arrived with no detail but for what was on the label. There was no image of this Shiraz available on the website either so the Shiraz Viognier is pictured above.

Sapling Yard The Four Pinots 2019


Quite a unique wine and one I've never previously encountered. Made from the four Pinots - Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier which were all sourced from around the Canberra district.

Lamb and camp fires speak to me when I look at this Sagrantino from the Canberra district.
