Oakridge Meunier 2021


Cool evenings call for autumnal wines just like this partnered by a charcuterie board or a bowl of chips. It will take a slight chill too.

Pommery Brut Royal Champagne NV


There's something about Champagne that just makes you feel a little bit fancy. This Pommery impressed deluxe. A blend of forty crus, it sees 36 months in bottle before release.

Somos Pinot Meunier 2021


The Gold Coast has a lot of things but one thing it lacks is good independent bottle shops. Enter Somm at Nobby Beach. Masterfully curated by former Fesq rep Joe Caruso, the diversity that has been jam-packed into this space is quite something. I was having dinner at a BYO nearby and I was on a mission. Qwife was after Pinot but Joe and I hatched a plan with this Pinot Meunier. In short, it hit the mark and we both loved it. What a juicy and joyous wine it is!

Jansz Pontos Hills Vintage Cuvée 2017


A new Cuvée released to speak of its place rather than the sum of the parts and it is superb! Released to celebrate the new Pontos Hills winery (formerly Frogmore Creek), the good folk at Jansz are excited about this new location for the next generation of Jansz sparkling wines in Tasmania.

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.

Oakridge Meunier 2019

Slinky booze.  This Meunier is the shiz! Such a slurpable number, it's the type you don't want to share with anyone. Buy as much as you can I say.

Oakridge Meunier 2018

This is the type of wine you want to slosh in your glass and give your insides a reward after a crappy day at work. So moreish and delicious, you won't feel guilty for not sharing.

Oakridge Meunier Rosé 2016

The Oakridge gang have really brought Pinot Meunier to the fore. They've even gone all hipster and removed "Pinot" in their branding too. Clever. Smart fizz this. Such a softly spoken individual.

Seppelt Salinger Vintage 2013

I'm happy to be wrong but no other fizz would match honey soy chips as good as this. Not that I had honey soy chips on hand but you get the picture.

Oakridge Meunier 2016

I'm late to the party here admittedly, but damn, I wanna stay all night. What a cracking piece of work this is! Brilliant Meunier!

Seppelt Salinger Vintage Cuvee 2012

The cork gods weren't kind here. The taint was bad enough to be noticed but not bad enough to screw the face up. Dare I say, many folk wouldn't have a clue this bottle was tainted anyway.

A blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier (60/30/10), it felt heavier in the mouth than expected. Scrumpy like, pureed apples, a lemon squeeze and some yeasty complexity. Good textural presence through the middle with a respectble length.

And extra point because it should be better than this.

Drink now.

90/100 - Very good

Ninth Island Sparkling NV

A casual catch up with friends saw this appear on the table when one of them brought it along. The looks of disappointment were clear as glasses of this were handed out and as one said, "Ordinary for the money you pay." Admittedly, I haven't had a look at this drop for a while but I came to the same sad conclusion.

Sour apple, zesty lemon and citrus dominant. Dry and crisp to finish, it seemed a little thin on fruit with lashings of creaminess adding weight. Sour apple sneaks up again on the finish.

I couldn't finish the glass off and there's plenty of others at the price point I'd go for instead.
