The birds are chirping, the sun is out, maybe there is some love in the air??
The warm nights are getting that little bit longer and everyone is starting to wear clothes that little bit shorter...
It's bloody beautiful ladies and gents, Spring is here!
So in celebration of this and all the good things that Spring brings, we have some amazing, new vintage, value wines for you to whet your whistle with...
Our wines for Spring include:
Known throughout Australia and considered one of the pioneers of the Australian Rose revival, the team at Turkey Flat have pulled out all the stops with their latest release.
Affectionately known as the 'Prince of Pink', this moniker aptly characterises this terrific wine. Light and fresh, yet with real purpose behind it, it is the perfect foil to a hot Summers day. Its glorious, light fruit flavours are generous, yet balanced beautifully by the dry luscious finish. An incredible wine and one that should be enjoyed over and over.

It can be sometimes hard get excited about the traditional SSB blend , but when this came across our tasting table (in this case, the coffee table in our MD's living room), we all stood up and paid attention.
Immediately our senses were aroused by the wonderful tropical fruit leaping from the glass, as we tentatively took our first sniff, the Head Winemaker, Coby, looking on with a smirk on his face. Any hesitation was immediately gone though, as we tucked into the glass.

It's so easy to get lost in the myriad of Shiraz from around the country in the $30 price range. They are a dime a dozen, yet you will struggle to find a better one that this.
Yangarra's new Shiraz stands head and shoulders above the competition and proudly commands the respect of its much pricier cousins. Its spicy flavours and elegant finish are hallmarks that will have you going back, again and again, till the bottle is suddenly finished and you wonder how in hell that happened. It is utterly delightful and sure to be remembered for a long time to come.

Wow, Wow, Wow...this is seriously good juice!
Estate grown in the fascinating Great Southern region of WA, these guys have been knocking out great wines for eons. Their Riesling's are an absolute standout in an area that abounds with standouts (think Dukes, Castle Rock...).
The perfect vino for a hot Summer's day, it is fresh and light, with lemon/lime zest and a wonderful acidity that, while certainly present, doesn't take over in any way. It is wonderfully balanced and bone dry. The perfect wine to squirrel away if you like to enjoy a bit of bottle age on your Riesling.

This is one white wine that you should be buying up right now! This is absolutely lovely grape juice and clear evidence that Riesling should be on more peoples lists!
To set the scene, we have just tried (and loved) their current release Riesling (2017), before the head winemaker poured some of this into our glasses...heaven does exist our friends!
The quality was immediately abundant, from the moment the aromas hit our nose. Those gorgeous kerosene notes, delicately laced with hints of lemon curd and slate (yes, slate). It is hard to describe just how good this is with just words. It is subtle, yet powerful, graceful and lithe, swirling through your mouth and setting off little celebrations throughout, like mini fireworks.
This should not be missed!
RARE as hens teeth & simply divine!
$34.95 in a 6pack (RRP $45+, but really, these wine experiences are priceless...)
