Clandestine Vineyards Prosecco Rosé 2022


Attractive on the eye, this is a crowd-pleasing Prosecco from the King Valley ready to wet your whistle. Solid aperitif gear, think the sun, sarongs and seafood.

De Bortoli Re-Write The Rules Pinot Noir 2021


A new label from De Bortoli. A Victorian Pinot Noir but the detail on the label is scant. But it is said to be 'fragrant, fun soulful and vibrant'.

Pizzini Per Gli Angeli 2012

Christmas pudding in a glass is a more than apt description of this hypnotic dessert wine from Pizzini. Per Gli Angeli is Italian for 'For the Angels". Made in the Vin Santo style, when you consider the winemaking process, the angels seem to have taken their fair share too. This is simply sublime.

Santa and d'Sas Renno Riesling 2016


I was gifted this Riesling a little while ago and held off for the right moment. Warming up for six kilos of Porchetta seemed an appropriate occasion. Good gear this with years left in the bank.

Thick as Thieves Driftwood 2021


This is something. It's smashable deluxe! Juicy, dancy and pretty, it was recommended to me by Joe Caruso - the owner of the uber cool Somm bottle shop on the Gold Coast. If you're in the hood, drop by. And if you ever see one of these on the shelf, reach out and grab one - quickly!

Pizzini Rubacuori Sangiovese 2016


These playful new labels capture the Pizzini history fabulously. This one is of Katrina Pizzini on the front of what seems her new car. I would be sitting on a Maroon XD Falcon but that's another story... Here we have a serious expression of Sangiovese. Sink your teeth in and your claws. Delicious and then some.

Pizzini Coronamento Nebbiolo 2016


Gee, I love the new label of the Coronamento with Robert Pizzini playing in the mountains of Trentino circa 1950. A polished Nebbiolo as you'd expect from the Pizzini's, this is an excellent wine.

Pizzini Arneis 2021


Some weight distinguishes this Arneis from the Riesling and Pinot Grigio in the Pizzini range. The diversity of these wines is something. Not only is there seemingly a wine for every occasion and taste, but the width and breadth of texture and interest are also explored.

Pizzini Riesling 2021


Cool climates deliver green apple goodness that can be seen in Riesling from such districts and this Pizzini release exemplifies that once again. What a fabulous drink. Oh, and have I mentioned how much I love these new labels? Well played team Pizzini for delivering a fresh new look.

Pizzini Pinot Grigio 2021


That soft touch is the feature of this Pinot Grigio from Pizzini. So fine and delicate, you feel like a silk sheet rides through your mouth.

Pizzini La Volpe Nebbiolo 2019


Gee, I love these new Pizzini labels. They just open the door to a new legion of fans. This Nebbiolo will do the same given its ready-to-drink now persona - something Nebbiolo of old never dreamt of.

Pizzini Nonna Gisella Sangiovese 2019


A wonderfully soft wine to throw in a glass and relax. Wines like this elevate a vast array of cuisines.

De Bortoli Blue Pinot Gris 2020


A new wine from De Bortoli - Blue Pinot Gris. Why Blue? As per the press release, "Blue evokes feelings of calmness, trust and confidence, paired with the dragonfly and butterfly which symbolise hope, change and freedom. That is what De Bortoli’s new BLUE Pinot Gris is all about."
