Cosmic Vinyaters "Desti" Orange 2019
100% Muscat de Alexandria whole bunch macerated for 3 weeks. 'This is a wine that straddles white wine and orange wine with aplomb. Highly aromatic with tangelo, quince, florals and some musk, the palate displays beautiful fruit that intermingles with phenolics. The fruit then lingers down a long mineral spine, darting in and out to say hello when you thought it had gone. Bright, plush, textured and fresh with a flinty edge, all make for a joyous summer wine and the perfect partner for South East Asian cuisine.' Notes from the distributor, Liz Carey.
Angiolino Maule "Masieri" Bianco 2019
La Biancara Maule Masieri Bianco, crisp, low sulphur, Italian white wine. Masieri Bianco Angiolino Maule is made from spontaneously fermented grapes, from vines grown in volcanic soils, using natural methods. Unfiltered with no added sulphites. Masieri Bianco is a blend of 90% Garganega and the rest is made up of a few other varieties which grow on his estate. The wine is kept fresh by fermentation in stainless steel with no skin contact - delicious with asparagus or pasta with homemade green pesto.
La Violetta "Loosie" Orange Blend 2020
Andrew Hoadley with another stunner. A multi year multi varietal (Riesling, Zibibbo, Gewurz, Vermentino, Pinot Grigio, Moscato and maybe some others) with skin contact ranging from 4 days to 6 weeks and some of the wine spending 4 years on less. Wow. Aromatics everywhere, think dried citrus, spices and sweet florals. Peaches, tangelo and galangal. Miam.
Dormilona "Teacher's Pet" 2021
Jo Perry loves Tempranillo! She has Spain in her heart. The whole Dormilona operation is inspired by the Spanish 'lazy-bones' way of life. It is only fitting that she makes a Pet Nat from one of her 'pet' varieties. It's a lifted, crunchy little Pet Nat where red fruit leads in a drink akin to bottled happiness!
Travis Tausend "Ari" Petillant Naturel 2021
Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir and Chardonnay have a play together here for this bright and bubbly nat. Quite vinous, more leesy, pie, lemon ginger, pretty and complex.
