Whites

BENITO FERRARA, TUFO, Campania

GRECO DI TUFO

100% Greco.  Gabriella Ferrara manages this small estate, that has been in her family for many generations, together with her husband Sergio. The major part of the vineyards (8 hectares) stands in the district of San Paolo within the commune of Tufo, which is considered the best zone for the Greco grape variety.  The wine has floral nuances with richer aromas of almond and hazelnut and mineral tones usher in a palate that is full with golden apple, peach and cinnamon.

DOMAINE DE LA SENECHALIERE, MARC PESNOT, Muscadet – Organic

VIN DE FRANCE MELON BLANC “LA BOHEME”

100% Melon de Bourgogne.  On the nose there are pretty notes of white flowers, pear and green apple.  The palate is broad and creamy with elegant white fruit flavours boosted by succulent minerality and a creamy dash of vibrant acidity.

ANDERT WEIN, PAMHOGEN, Burgenland – Biodynamic

PAMHOGNA WEISS

55% Rulander, 40% Neuburger, 5% Weissburgunder.  This wine has an intense golden-yellow colour and a lovely herbal fragrance.  It requires carafeing before all the elements harmonise – from the exotic white pear and pineapple aromas to the refreshing acid and fine structure conferred by a gentle clasp of tannin.

SI VINTNERS, SARAH MORRIS & IWO JAKIMOWICZ, Margaret River – Biodynamic

SI BABA YAGA

Mainly Sauvignon Blanc blended with a little Cabernet Sauvignon.   First tasted at a recent tasting and the general reaction was Wow!  Pure refreshing grapefruit juice, fantastic structure and great acidity.

 

Red

RUTH LEWANDOWSKI WINES, EVAN LEWANDOWSKI, Utah – Organic

BOAZ CUVEE ZERO

60% Carignan, 20% Grenache, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.  .  Big, burly varieties come together to make something complex and both 'masculine' and 'feminine.'  Stereotypically masculine in its roasted meat, earthiness and forest floor/tree-bark like aromas.  It still maintains this very pretty huckleberry, floral spice, and tea-tree like flinty notes to balance the manliness. 

WEINGUT MARTIN & ANNA ARNDORFER, Kamptal

VORGESCHMACK RED

80% Zweigelt, 20% Pinot Noir.  Delicious red that can be chilled but also has sufficient poke for food. Zweigelt gives a simple fruity rustic quality (blue-and-blackberries), Pinot Noir confers some structure, tannin and mineral seriousness.
