2022 Chalmers 'Mother Block' Red Murray Darling, VIC
Chalmers decided to release three blends from their home blocks and this bright, jubey and moreish rosso is one of the results. It takes Umbrian native sagrantino, traditionally a tannic beast, and tempers it with the Sicilian nero d’Avola to produce a surprisingly supple wine. There are also splashes of aglianico, uva di troia, teroldego and piedirosso. It’s guzzleable and perfect alongside both simple plates of charcuterie or all things barbecued.
2022 Airlie Bank Garden Red Yarra Valley, VIC
This is a fresh direction for the Punt Road team led by winemaking wizard Tim Shand. We absolutely love this energetic, bright, early drinking joven-style Yarra rojo, composed of grenache, gamay, cabernet franc and a splash of malbec It has red-fruited, perfumed aromatics in abundance and enough subtle structure to elevate this from a (garden) party wine to the table alongside a dynamic range of rustic dishes.
2021 Tavolo Rosso Mildura, VIC
As the name suggests, this is wine for the table, especially if that table has a red and white checkered tablecloth underneath some red-sauced pizza and pasta. It's medium-bodied, juicy and built for food that shares the same Southern Italian heritage of the grapes it was made from. Allora!
