    Unico Zelo The River Nero d’Avola 2018

    $20.00in any six

    $22.00 per single bottle

    Nero d’Avola is a variety that is well suited to Australian conditions. Unico Zelo’s entry level is a belter. Rich, textural and juicy, with the sweetest dark cherries, plum and bramble fruit. So much freshness with a slightly firm and spicy end. Bargain. Winemaker’s notes: Proudly from some of the most ancient soils on this […]

    Now simply labelled Nero d’Avola, this wine was previously called Rosso L’Isolano. It is still 100% Nero d’Avola from near Menfi on the Sicilian coast (in province of Agrigento). The leaner soils and cooling coastal influence here tend to produce a more delicate style of Nero d’Avola, factors that first attracted Justin Bubb to the […]

    The pretty, garnet-coloured 2017 Pavana has an intense fragrance of fresh wild raspberry and Darjeeling tea leaves. The palate is light and vibrant with rhubarb, rosehip and geranium characters backed by a subtle tannin structure around a long acid line. Hand-picked on the 29th March, chilled overnight then destemmed into open fermenter for a whole […]

    $27.00 per single bottle

    The 2017 Schioppettino is bursting with white pepper and spice aromas with a hint of jasmine and woody notes. The medium bodied palate reiterates the anise, cinnamon and cardamom spices with cedar oil, blackcurrant and Davidson plum flavours, supported by medium-grain tannins giving a lingering, dry finish. Hand-picked on the 20th of April, chilled overnight […]

    It’s business as usual for Gregory Perez’s entry-level Mencía, which again offers crazy value. Juicy and tangy, this is just a glass of deliciousness with loads of racy, cherry, peppery fruits. Think of quality Beaujolais villages but with more interest, and you’ll be coming close. This comes from multiple parcels of 30-60-year-old vines dotted around […]

    $31.00 per single bottle

    This first cuvée from vines planted on granitic soils, is the Cuvée des Gourmets. These vines were planted by Maxime’s grandfather Paul Verdier during the 1960s and are some of the oldest on the Verdier-Logel domaine. Bright red in colour with a perfumed nose of redcurrant and raspberry. The fruit sees just ten days of […]

    Italianate scents of orange rind and Amaro combine with blackberry, blueberry and leather. The palate is vivid and sinewy, subtly perfumed with blue-black fruits tempered by stacked, ripe tannins and juicy freshness permeating through to the finish. Pete Schell’s Aglianico is drawn from vines rooted in the quartz shot clay and granite of Caj Amadio’s […]

    $34.00in any six

    $37.00 per single bottle

    Braucol is more commonly known in the south-west of France as Fer Servadou (or Mansois in Marcillac). This comes from a parcel of 30-35 year old vines grown on clay and limestone soils. Think of it as a Gaillac Pinot or Beaujolais with some sappy stems. But of course, it has its own irresistible personality […]

    The 2018 Volcanique from Verdier-Logel is a beautiful, deep red colour. This wine has character. Minerals and spicy notes reveal an amazing expression of the terroir from which it comes. Both concentrated and harmonious. La Volcanique comes from basalt soils and the wine sees a maceration lasting three weeks, giving it more structure, substance and […]

    $39.00 per single bottle

    Cavallotto’s single vineyard Dolcetto D’Alba Vigna Scot DOC 2016 hails from 2.3 hectares of 30 year-old vines located within Castiglione Falletto’s legendary Monprivato cru. These Dolcetto vines face east, meaning it is cooler and later ripening. On these great soils, the mature vines, low yields and traditional winemaking result in a layered, deep and remarkably […]

    $41.00in any six

    $44.00 per single bottle

    To be ‘Contre-Pied’ is to be diametrically opposed to something. In this case, this organic, carbonic Duras is the opposite of the rustic, sleepy winemaking associated with this variety, and plenty of Gaillac rouge in general. This wine originates from a block of clay and limestone soil in Cahuzac-sur-Vère belonging to a family friend of […]

    Robert and Bernhard Plageoles Duras 2015

    $46.00in any six

    $50.00 per single bottle

    Duras is a variety of France’s south-west that almost disappeared during the 1960s, and today is found pretty much exclusively in Gaillac, bar two small parcels found further up the river Tarn. If it weren’t for the Plageoles’ resuscitation of Prunelart and Mauzac Noir, Duras would certainly be the oldest vine variety still grown in […]

    Domaine de Courbissac Minervois Les Farradjales Rouge 2016

    $61.00in any six

    $65.00 per single bottle

    Les Farradjales takes its name from an old vineyard set in the high Minervois on rocky, white clay and limestone soils, roughly 12 kilometres uphill from the winery. In this very cool, stoney vineyard, Claux’s 70-year-old Cinsault vines yield only 20 hl/ha. It’s pretty rare to find a straight Cinsault but low yields and poor […]

    From very low-yielding vines, the Farrajales Rouge 2017 is made from 100% Organic Cinsault grapes. This variety is more typically used in blended wines or Rose in the Languedoc. Domaine de Courbissac instead crafts a stunningly juicy, yet delicate red. Fantastic perfume of red berries and a touch of spice. Just beautiful! Les Farradjales takes […]
