d'Arenberg The Innocent Weed GMS 2020

 


The Innocent Weed is all about that pesky spear grass that pins itself to you unsuspectingly. These are kept at bay in d'Arenberg's organic and biodynamic vineyards by the use of herbicides put them to sleep and improve the soils.

Tellurian Rosé 2020

 


This Rosé from Tellurian is a blend of Shiraz,  Nero d'Avola, Mourvedre and Grenache. A terrific food wine it must be said, but the school of thought is that a 'food wine' is below par. Not so. This wine will make the dining experience enjoyable rather than it needing a wingman to prop it up.

Tellurian GSM 2019

 


The GSM blend can be exhilarating when done well and this release from Tellurian urges attention. Such a great drink, you can't help but gravitate towards it.

Cool autumn evenings and the bell rings for GMT o'clock. But there's no tonic here my friends. Make that a very smashable Grenache Mourvedre Touriga thank you very much.

Yangarra Estate Noir 2019

 


Last year's Yangarra Estate Noir blew me out of the water. A repeat dose of excitement for the 2019 it seems.

d'Arenberg The Ironstone Pressings GSM 2017


This wine is one of the most consistent releases from d'Arenberg over recent years. And based on that, this is the best one yet - a terrific blend.

d'Arenberg Stephanie the Gnome with Rose Coloured Glasses 2020


I've got sore hands from typing in the name of this wine. Yikes! A blend of Mourvedre, Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Cinsault make up this incredibly long named organic and biodymanic Rosé.

A terrific blend for those that love a good GSM. Count me in that crowd. This is a beauty for the money - there wasn't drop left.
