El Desperado Red Blend 2022


Known as the Red Blend, when you get a red wine that's as easy to throw back as this, it doesn't matter what the make up is. What a fabulous slurp this is from El Desperado.

El Desperado Rosé 2023


These El Desperado labels were made using AI. The detail is captivating I must say. The label on this Rosé depicts a warm summer's sunset and that is precisely when you should drink this.

Skimstone Wines Sangiovese 2021

Sangiovese done well is a classic pizza night wine and that is precisely what I thought when I put this to my lips. The wines in the Skimstone range are highly consistent and this release ticks the boxes.

Skimstone Wines Rosé 2023


Brand new in the bottle, I was fortunate to be the first to check this out with winemaker Jean Francois prior to its release. Winning! This Rosé from Skimstone is an absolute cracker for 25 bucks. Go here.

First Ridge Wines Marco 2021


Marco is a 50/50 blend of Barbera and Sangiovese. This 2021 is the first release of the wine and it looks as though First Ridge might be onto something. Rich and generous, it's such a great drink.

First Ridge Wines Sangiovese 2021


The thing that strikes me about these First Ridge Wines is the consistency across the range. Well made with interest, they are reasonably priced too. This Sangiovese showcases all its varietal traits making it very enjoyable and then some.

First Ridge Wines Rosé 2021


This Rosé from First Ridge Wines calls for casual catch-ups, even a bag of sea salt chips as you watch the sun fall from the sky at day's end. It's a good drink for all occasions.

Oxford Landing Stargazing Juicy Red 2022


Summer red wine drinking. That's what this is. Part of the new Oxford Landing range, it's a joyous red that will take a chill. And I reckon it drinks way better with a chill too. Perfect for those warmer days if you feel like something with a little more body than what a white wine can offer.

Mount Langhi Ghiran Billi Billi Rosé 2022


Crisp red apple acidity with a long feathering of spice sums up this Grampians Rosé best.

Angullong Fossil Hill Rosé 2022


A very tasty savoury Rosé that has some great fruit behind it that propels the delish factor. Great stuff this.

Sutton Grange Fairbank Rosé 2021

I was told to have a porchetta roll from Heart Attack and Vine before leaving Melbourne this week. It's a good thing I'm very compliant when it comes to all things porkalicious. I grabbed a glass of this Sutton Grange off the list and what fabulous lunchtime wine it is.

Angullong Crossing Reserve Harriet 2019


All the Italians swing into action here - Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Montepulciano come together in a blend that I can't help but keep going back for.

Gee, this is one out of the box! A superb Rosé from a producer you may not have on your radar. Afternoon chills just got that little bit better with this in the glass.
