Our Try January Mixed Case - a few of our more Eclectic wines x3 White and x3 Red's.
Domaine Sorin de France Saint Bris - Half way between Sancerre and Chablis! This is Sauvignon from Burgundy, a few kilometres south of the Chablis AOC Saint Bris is the only Burgundy AOC that allows Sauvignon Blanc or Gris in the wines. This is subtle Sauvignon without the pronounced flavours of popular new world examples.
Ne? Bianco - A blend of Arneis, Favorita and Cortese, local grapes in Piedmont. Rich and fruity on the nose displaying floral notes and white fruit flavours of banana and pear. This fruity sensation transitions in the mouth to deeper notes of honey, butter and a light acidity that swiftly cleanses the palate.
Reyneke Sauvignon Blanc - This vibrant Sauvignon Blanc bursts with lime zest, some white peach and pineapple, with hints of oyster shell on the nose. The palate shows a lovely brightness, firm acidity and definite flinty notes, unique to the Reyneke site.
It is axiomatic that every producer of new-era natural wine should have at least one label that is graphic or flirts with the suggestive. The No Sexual Services pink bunny label is Blaufrankisch but not as you know it. It's pinkish-red with oodles of refreshing, stemmy sour cherry fruit and mouth-cleansing acidity. A delightful wine for drinking chilled, it's crying out for pasta and tomatoe sauce.
'Les ' - Caladoc is a relatively unknown variety from the south of France, a cross between Malbec and Grenache. The principal distinguishing feature of this variety is its dense, almost black colour. It is also recognisable for its aromas of very ripe red fruit and a slight spiciness. In the mouth it is concentrated and very fruit forward with a superb tannic structure.
Hill Blueblood This cool climate region is defined by cool nights and warm days and lower than average January temperatures (by Australian standards). Summed up it can be described as a blueberry pie with notes of black cherries! The palate is silky smooth with a tumble of berries, gentle spice and a smudge of caramel, all perfectly wrapped in generous yet gentle tannin.
