2016 She’s a Rainbow, Chardonnay, from Ngarrindjeri + Bungandidj Country, Wrattonbully, SA
It’s fantastic to see a small vineyard producing such quality fruit. The few years in bottle has done wonders to this chardonnay, with a developing vanilla and richness rounding out the flavours. A select wine, you won’t find anywhere else.
2016 Zorzettig, Refosco, from Fruili, Italy
There are so many indigenous grape varietals around the world, its mind blowing. Most European countries have more than you could count, and most are never drunk anywhere else except the regions in which they are cultivated. This Refosco is a perfect example.
This Refosco is big. Big in flavour, tannin and acid. With plenty of robust, dark berry fruit, dried herbs and mouth filling texture.
