BRAVE NEW WINE - GLITTER US PET NAT
From Great Southern in Western Australia. Made mostly from Vermentino with a splash of Riesling thrown in. This first white Pet Nat from BNW is delightfully crisp and refreshing and is sure to break the ice with its risqué cuvé name.
MINIM - PATSY VERMENTINO FIANO 2021Showing off another side of Vermentino here. Patsy is made for summer; fresh crunchy acid and good time tropical fruit, subtle white pepper and texture born from extended time on lees and a short soak on skins prior to ferment. All in stainless steel, a few days on skins, all native yeasts, very little oxygen and a small addition of sulphur prior to bottling.
Savoury, lean, crisp and textural.
BALMY NIGHTS - RED 2021
A clean, crunchy and refreshing red crafted by Dan Simmons using Sangiovese from the Hilltops area in NSW. Effortlessly drinkable and can be enjoyed with or without a chill.
SAN LORENZO - DI GINO ROSSO 2018
Finally a slightly more serious and brooding red from San Lorenzo in Italy's Marche region for the later hours. 100% Montepulciano. Plummy, fleshy and smooth with a nice lick of tannin to straighten things out.
