Ricca Terra Arinto 2017
Le Renard Chardonnay 2015
Sigurd Syrah 2016
Aromas of dark berry fruits, coffee beans, with hints of spice. The palate has rich black cherries and plums. Smooth and velvety with an old world feel. This is a beautiful expression of Australian Shiraz.
Sigurd Rose 2017
This Rosé is made from Grenache (50%), Shiraz and Mourvedre (20%), and Gewurztraminer (10%).
A floral and fruit driven nose with aromas of cherries, strawberries, and hints of rose water. The palate is dry in style with nice acidity and minerality, though it's not without those lovely Grenache red berry fruits. Textural and fresh, dangerously good drinking.
Sigurd White Blend 2017
An aromatic and textural blend of Riesling, Garganega, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, and Viognier.
Beautifully perfumed nose with delicate floral notes, just ripe stone fruits and hints of dry spice. Some light skin contact with citrus fruits on the palate. Warming, soft (though not without some lovely tannin structure) and elegant natural wine.
Sigurd Hoyde Chardonnay 2017
Dan was excited for us to try this one.
Inspired by both French and Australian Chardonnay, aged in 100% new Meursault oak. This wine is full flavoured, textural, and complex. An aromatic nose of honey nougat, citrus fruits, apples, and floral notes. The palate is generous with stone fruits kept lean by a healthy dose of minerality. Plenty of length and depth. This is a damn fine Chardonnay.
Very limited (only a single barrel was made).
Pab Pat Sullivan And Bill Downie Shiraz 2016
Dormilona Clayface Pet Nat 2017
One of the finest Pet Nats to grace our shelves. Cloudy and textural with aromas of yellow plums and citrus fruits. The palate has grapefruits with just ripe peaches and apricots. A dry style of wine with fresh and lean acidity.
Dry grown Chenin Blanc from a certified organic vineyard in Willyabrup with a little hint of Tempranillo to help soften the palate. Hand harvested, whole bunch pressed & transfered straight to Italian amphoras (beeswax lined clay pots) for wild fermentation. Once the degrees of natural sugars reaches a certain level, the bubbling wine was transfered directly into bottle where it was allowed to finish its fermentation to leave a wine thats is naturally sparkling. No nothings. Sans sulphur.
CLAYFACE is a limited range of project wines made in pure amphora terracotta. Dormilona winemaker Josephine Perry makes minimal intervention wines follows organic and biodynamic practices. No pesticides or fungicides are used on the vines, and there are no additives, fining or filtration.
Le Renard Pinot Noir 2015
Claus Preisinger Ancestral St Laurent 2016
A highly aromatic dark skinned grape variety that draws similarity to Pinot, Claus' interpretation is meaty and raw, juicy and wild. Think black tea meets forest fruit. While St Laurent is absolutely everywhere in Austria, it remains a highly underrepresented grape variety here in Australia. We're proud to bring in one of the best examples we've come across in some time, made with patience and minimal sulphur.
Very light rosé touch, on the nose with white currant, some peach and mango, discreet and charming, a light green spice comes to some coriander, cool and fresh. On the palate very creamy and subtle perlage, fine and light, with a juicy acidity, again peach, mint and lychee, fresh fruit dominates the palate, a fine sparkling wine without yeasts and with a lot of drinking flow!
Charles Gardet Premier Cru 2004
The elegant lightly creamed mousse coats the mouth with soft lemon, brioche and fine nutty characters evolving through to a captivating finish of gala apple and freshly baked bread. A very fine bead sustains the long complex finish, unfurling further complexity with every sip.
Xavier Halfway To Heaven 2017
This year's Halfway to Heaven is a fun and funky blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. A beautiful nose of tropical and stone fruits followed by a textural palate with hints of fresh spring vegetables.
