Soul Growers Provident Shiraz 2021

 

Quintessential Barossa Shiraz. This is a great snapshot of the district in a glass. Always a respectable wine, the Provident Shiraz is well worth putting on your radar.

Tenafeate Creek One Tree Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

 

Loaded with roasted peppers, this is a big Cabernet.

Barrett Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2022

 


A herbaceous and passionfruit driven Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc.

Miss Zilm Pinot Gris 2022

 

From the Clare Valley sub-region of Sevenhill comes this tidy Pinot Gris made by Keeda Zilm. 

Running With Bulls Albariño 2022

 

A mighty fine debut from Running With Bulls and this small batch Albariño. It's just another reason to embrace something new this summer.

Paisley Wines Turntable GSM 2020

 

GSM is always a good barbecue wine option. This release from Paisley Wines has a meaty profile that asks for it.

Oliver's Taranga Brioni's Blend 2022

 

Your face lights up immediately when you meet Brioni. Her infectious smile brightens the room and this wine, much like her, brightens the mood big time. Vibrant and energetic, it's a blend of Mataro, Touriga and Shiraz. Loaded with juicy fruit, it's all party shoes on and let's get dancing. More like this please - it is an absolute beauty.

Heggies Vineyard Reserve Chardonnay 2018

 


A very tidy Chardonnay that shouldn't be served too cold so you can experience all of its beauty.

Yalumba The Octavius Shiraz 2017

 


Yalumba's flagship Shiraz. Long and moreish, this Octavius is best suited for those late night D&Ms. Sip slow and stay a while.

Chapel Hill Abacus Shiraz 2021

 

This is a great Shiraz for the budget conscious. It's dense and generous - get your claws into kinda stuff.

Chapel Hill Abacus Mourvedre Rosé 2022

 

Straight up and down, there's not a lot of excitement or get up and go with this Mourvedre Rosé. 

Yalumba Y Series Pinot Noir 2022

 

To be released in early 2023, winemaker Sam Wigan is pretty excited about this and sent a pre-release sneak peek my way. This is another Y Series bargain worth keeping an eye out for.

Chapel Hill Organic Small Batch Shiraz 2021

  

The organic wine market continues to surge and this small batch Shiraz from Chapel Hill is their red wine contribution. Good gear, it flows with ease.

Brash Higgins Smart Vineyard Grenache 2021

 

Brad Hickey has moved into the Grenache game. Usually producing a Grenache Mataro blend, he's stepped things up and sourced some fruit from the 70 year old vines in the Smart Vineyard. What an excellent and delicately handled debut this is!

Hutton Vale Farm Eden Valley Riesling 2022

 

Wines like this fly the flag and give another reason to demand that you need to drink more Riesling. Another to add to that ever-growing 'must try' list.

Paisley Wines Cashmere Riesling 2022

 


The Cashmere Riesling 2022 has had a little makeover with the labelling falling in line with others in the range. I must say, it's a good looking label too. From a little producer in Angaston, support small businesses like these and you'll be rewarded with quality wines. As for this, that chalky feel has me hooked. This Riesling is ace. 

Oliver's Taranga Tempranillo 2022

 

Brisket on steamed buns with a glass or two of this. Yes please! Tempranillo is made for food so load up a plate and fill your glass.

Chapel Hill Organic Small Batch Chardonnay 2021

 

McLaren Vale is a lot of things but a Chardonnay hotspot is one thing it is not. More muted than the Abacus Chardonnay, this is quite a simple drink.
