The complete palette of reds.
2021 Peekaboo Pet Nat Grenache, Mclaren Vale
Pink guava juice with a light fizz. Undisgorged.
2021 Why Try So Hard Blush, Mclaren Vale
Direct pressed chenin, skin contact sauvignon blanc from an experimental block Fi Wood was caring for this harvest, direct pressed arneis and around 5% carbonic shiraz. Pretty and Pink, straight up juice.
2021 Danby Carbonic Grenache, Mclaren Vale
Sourced from Jim Zerella’s block in Willunga. Rich clay interspersed with lots of broken rock.
2021 Audrey Carbonic Shiraz, Clarendon, dry grown
Much darker than previous years. Fully loaded with candy shop and plum flavour. Unreal. Dry grown shiraz.
2021 Tikka the Cosmic Cat Shiraz, Grenche, McLaren Vale
85% Ralphs dry grown shiraz, 15% Lillies Octagenerian grenache. Super smooth, dark raspberry aromas and complex tones of undergrowth and spice. Yum.
2021 UJO Franc, Shiraz, McLaren Vale
I usually add some chenin to this blend but this year the wine just looked so slick without. Very stylish wine, lots of bright, dark fruit.
