Hesketh Twist of Fate Cabernet Sauvignon 2019


Coming from the Limestone Coast and peak Cabernet Sauvignon territory, this is a tidy wine for 15 bucks.

Wynns Reframed Coonawarra Cabernet Rosé 2021


I must admit, the words "Cabernet Rosé" don't get my juices flowing. Attractive on the eye, this new release from Wynns may just change that perception.

Wynn's Reframed Fiano x Pinot Grigio x Arneis 2021


Here we go! Something fresh and left of centre from Wynn's. It's great to see traditional brands cut loose and offer a cheeky side. This is a self-described "red lovers white".

Hesketh Jimi's Ferment Fumé Blanc 2020


Fermented like a red wine but without the skins the back label says, this Sauvignon Blanc went through MLF then saw seven months in old French oak.

Yalumba Wild Ferments Pinot Grigio 2019

A new label from Yalumba to catch the essence of the vineyard using wild yeasts and minimal intervention. This Pinot Grigio is a pretty handy drop too.

Yalumba Wild Ferments Sauvignon Blanc 2019

My first look at the debut Yalumba Wild Ferments label and I like what a see. Quality Sauv Blanc from the Limestone Coast region.

Gee we are blessed with the quality of Rosés on the shelves at present. Check out this beauty which even gets you change from a lobster.

Ottelia Seedling Pinot Gris 2018

Sourced from Robe, 100km west of Coonawarra, the area is a beachside playground for many South Australians. The region produces cool climate wines with a maritime climate.

Wangolina Lagrein 2018

Here's a variety not seen all that much but this is a label well worth tucking under your arm. Hailing from northern Italy, this Wangolina Lagrein has a gorgeous appearance in the glass. The cerise hue captures the energy of the wine beautifully.

Wangolina Tempranillo 2018

Pizza, pasta and Tempranillo - a winning combo. A  tidy wine to sit beside your meal. No fuss, no nonsense. Solid drinking.

Wangolina Rosé 2019

With the Rosé market swamped with pale salmon Provencal style wines because, "That's what the consumer wants," it's refreshing to see a bright reddish splash of Rosé in the glass.

Di Giorgio Family Wines Kongorong Riesling 2016

Riesling from Kongorong, an area south of Mount Gambier in the Limestone Coast region. Good drinking too.

Cape Jaffa Anna's Blend 2015

Chill hard and wash your worries away.

A curious blend of barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Gewurtraminer. Although the percentages aren't stated, I don't particularly care - when blends like this come off, just rip in.

Turkish Delight, cinnamon, musk, tropical fruit, poached pear, honey, pineapple husk, even what seems to be a faint touch of white pepper in this buffet of aromas.

Crisp but the texture from the barrel fermented portion fills out the palate a little. A lick of fruit sweetness and spices from the Gewurz go to work riding this all the way home.

Refreshingly different and so very smashable.

Drink now watching the sunset.

Very good.

Cape Jaffa Wines Unwooded Chardonnay 2015

No Unwooded Chardonnay
image available
Coming outta Mt Benson, nothing really striking leaps from the glass when I take a whiff. Green melons, watery white peach and some warmth to taste. Some sweetness lingers too as does a greasy phenolic grip. It just lacks interest.

Would I buy it? No. I doubt I'd be able to finish a glass.
