Varietals & blends
Mr. Brown’s Posy Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
A white blend from Margaret River, the Mr. Brown’s Posy Semillon Sauvignon Blanc (203987) leads with aromas of kiwifruit and lemongrass flavours. Followed by hints of beeswax and refreshingly textural and balanced acidity from time spent in French barriques, this wine is light enough to be enjoyed with salads, poached chicken and nearly every kind of cheese.
Mt Yengo Riverina Chardonnay
Coming out of Australia’s Riverina region, the Mt Yengo 2021 Chardonnay (206746) is deliciously fresh and full of peaches and cream flavours. Complemented by aromas of stone fruit and its crisp mineral finish, this wine is best served chilled and enjoyed with roast chicken or BBQ prawns.
Four Southern Boys Adelaide Hills Pinot Grigio
The Four Southern Boys Adelaide Hills Pinot Grigio (193851) is typical of its varietal, with a crisp and refreshing palate, and soft, yet delicate structure. Lifted aromas of fresh citrus, lemon and lime, with green melon and peach blossom complement its flavours of nashi pear, lychee and grapefruit. With a delightful creaminess, dry finish and beautifully balanced acidity, this wine pairs well with light pasta dishes and risottos.
Nowhere Road Clare Valley Riesling
Nowhere Road Riesling (206070) is produced in South Australia’s Clare Valley region and opens with a generous bouquet of lime sherbet, fresh cut dew melon and orange blossom. Flavours of lemon flesh, lime cheesecake and a mouthwatering steely minerality are followed by lots of tangy lime sherbet which sits up front on the palate. The zippiness of this wine is down to its tight, all natural, acid structure which pairs well with mushroom alfredo and charred Cajun chicken, potato leek and bacon or grilled barramundi with herbed butter.
Barristers Block Poetic Justice Sauvignon Blanc
Made from Adelaide Hills estate grown fruit, the Barristers Block Poetic Justice Sauvignon Blanc (204520) displays strong varietal aromas and a fresh zesty, elegant balance. With intense grassy and herbaceous characteristics displayed on the mid palate, this wine pairs ideally with cheese, particularly goat’s cheese as the tanginess balances out the citrus in the wine.
62 Above Sauvignon Blanc Semillon
The 2021 vintage of the 62 Above Sauvignon Blanc Semillon (204599) presents a regional classic white blend. This Western Australian wine is characterised by lifted aromas of fresh citrus fruits and flavours of Granny Smith apple, pear and lemon. Supported by a refreshing acidity and long crisp finish, this wine pairs nicely with fish, prawns, scallops and other seafood.
