2020 Little Ra Ra Pet Nat #2, Sauvignon Blanc, Pyrenees (Vic)
Whole bunch fermented SB, bottled in August after priming with sweet grape juice from the same pick. Paw paw, mango lassie, and white pepper aromas are joined in the palate by grapefruit and prominent orange. Digging deeper unearths turmeric, dried sage, and butter. Released with a healthy sediment. Chill well prior to opening.
2020 Das Juice Maceration, McLaren Vale (Sa)
"Well farmed and well made" is the guarantee from Das Juice, The local swag of wines from super importers James Audas and Tom Sheer. This is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Arneis from two Mclaren Vale vineyards, one farmed organically and the other biodynamically. The juice spends 16 days on skins and is a refreshing wine for all summer occasions.
2020 Boomtown 'White' Chardonnay, Riesling, Bendigo (Vic)
Coming to you live from Castlemaine's fun factory that is Boomtown, this is a blend of chardonnay and riesling from two central Victorian vineyards with their roots in Devonian Granite. A more generous and supple expression of this cuvee compared to years past but with hallmark acidity that provides the scaffolding to keep the wine upright in the mouth!
NV Onesun 'Dr Happy' Rose, Mornington Peninsula (Vic)
A Blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc. The name for this cuvee stems from Sam Parker's (winemaker) father doing his Psych Masters in happiness. This is a bright and joyous wine from the peninsula that tastes like a Gunnamatta Sunset.
2020 Bink Wines 'Meisje' Alicante Bouchet, Barossa Valley (Sa)
'Meisje' means little girl in Dutch. This barrel was called 'Meisje' by winemaker Koen Janssen's son, and the name stuck. The wine is 100% Alicante Bouchet, one of the few varieties that bleeds red (is made up of red pulp). Juicy, plump finishing with berry crunch.
2019 Dirty Black Denim Sangiovese III, Heathcote (Vic)
We have been raving about the new release of wines from the Scanlon brothers for the last three weeks. The Sangiovese is a class act. It shows it's variety and place. Red fruited with a savoury and rustic structure, it is a go-to-glass of wine from the table to the picnic rug.
