Susuro Farfella Nebbiolo 2021


Soft and lacy, this Nebbiolo from the famed Pyrenees Malakoff vineyard is well worth a look. It's a disco for the senses. An excellent example of what modern Nebbiolo looks like, you can't help but feel upbeat in its presence.

Long Gully Estate Malakov Vineyard Syrah 2020

Malakoff or Malakov? The label states the latter which no doubt is an oversight. But then plums were misspelled on the label as 'plumes'. Little errors like these take the gloss off a pretty, fragrant and delicious Pyrenees Syrah.

Blue Pyrenees Estate 2018


Right in the slot of a classic Cabernet Merlot, blackcurrants meet plums framed by savoury delish. Well played here by Blue Pyrenees.

Blue Pyrenees Estate Bone Dry Rosé 2020


A wine that lives up to its name - it's bone dry deluxe. Made with Pinot Noir and Merlot, this is a Rosé that needs some food. Tapas would do just fine.

There is no going wrong here. A reliable Cabernet year in, year out and often under $20. You are the winner. Pizza, the lounge, streaming your favourite series - you get the picture.

There isn't a lot of Grenache out in the Pyrenees I wouldn't have thought, but gee we're on to a winner here. Quite the tasty number. It's certified organic too.

Viognier. Get into it. There are some clever examples around the traps and this is one of them. Well priced at $26, it's a fab drink. Did I mention it's organic?

This Malakoff vineyard is the business. Every time I see a wine from it my eyes light up. A fabulous Nebbiolo right here folks.

Blue Pyrenees Sparkling Shiraz NV


Sparkling Shiraz is SO Australian but the shame is that it is pigeon holed as a Christmas Day drink. Surely we can do better than 1 out of 365? Check out this great value beauty and perhaps your afternoon drinks with friends may change course.
