We all end up in here eventually. From our Work From Home Series of 6-packs, this is a great drink now mix of 2 whites, 2 rosés and 2 reds.
Domaine Pichot Sec Vouvray 2018 - Exceptional intensity - perfume, finesse and lip-smacking freshness. Old vine depth with texture and richness. 3 grams residual sugar (ie. dry) with refreshing balanced acidity. Stunning.
Bollini Pinot Grigio 2019 - “Straw yellow in colour, clear-cut and delicate on the nose, with scents of acacia flowers, minerals and pear. The fresh natural acidity supports the wine.” Winemaker’s notes.
Medhurst Rosé 2020 - "Very pale copper with a bright vibrant pink hue. Deliciously elusive fresh fruits including strawberry and raspberry are supported by hints of fennel and white blossom of jasmine. The palate is savoury and refined with a supple creamy texture. The finish to the wine is superb, fresh fruits, lovely roundness and weight and a long chalky delicate line that is trademark of this single vineyard wine." Winemaker's notes.
Chateau Riotor Rosé 2018 - ”Pale brilliant pink. Lively, mineral-accented orange zest, strawberry and floral scents show very good clarity and pick up a spicy nuance with aeration. Nicely concentrated yet lively on the palate, offering incisive red berry, blood orange and floral pastille flavors underscored by a dusty mineral quality. Shows sharp delineation and cut on the finish, which hangs on with strong tenacity.” 91 points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media, August 2019.
Rive Droite Rive Gauche Cote du Rhone Rouge 2018 - The colour is plummy and dark. Lifted aromatics of dark cherries, blackberries and violets roll onto the palate revealing sour cherry, marzipan, pepper and spices. Abundant upfront flavour but not like Aussie GSM. Medium-bodied with good acid to balance its fruit, very fine tannins and a snappy dry finish, it gains weight as it opens up. Fresh, simple and delicious.
Head Wines Head Red Shiraz 2018 - “There's a lot happening here, all of it good. 80% is sourced from the Eden Valley, 20% the Barossa Valley, co-fermented on skins for 14 days, matured in French oak (10% new), the barrel size ranging from 225L to 2250L. There's a poultice of red and black fruits and ribbons of fine, ripe tannins. You can't deny a wine like this.” 96 points, James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion.
