2018 Athlete’s Of Wine, Alto Alto Bianco, From Kulin Nation, Macedon Ranges, VIC
This white is an incredible blend of Riesling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, with some of the grapes left on skins, fermented separately and then blended to create the most perfect balance of texture and fruit.
2019 La Ficelle Rouge, Gamay/ Pinot Noir, Loire Valley, FR
Gamay is one of my favourite varietals. There’s a seductiveness, an almost sensual aroma followed by a silky texture and lithe fruit over the palate. The French do it so well and traditionally from a region called Beaujolais. This wine, while not from Beaujolais, possess all those delicious attributes but slightly fuller, with the addition of pinot noir also.
