No One Will Order This v18.0


Price as configured: $120.00

Geared at wine lovers who are happy to go ‘off the beaten track’, this pack explores some exciting alternate varietals that are on the move in Oz right now. These wines are properly food friendly whether it’s a rustic bowl of pasta in the centre of the table or a full blown Sunday lunch with the family heirloom dinnerware normally kept too far out of reach somewhere in the front room. A triple threat of Grenache, Bonvedro, Nero D’Avola and a Malbec blend - be still my beating heart.

Allow us to prattle on a little more about this...

Here are some wines we think you should try… if you’re a fan of fragrant, food-friendly wines that is. Lino Ramble’s Nero D’Avola is an absolute favourite of ours. It’s delicious with cherry, rhubarb, plum, lavender and spice. Bundles of fresh fruit and a silken texture make for mouth-wateringly fun times. Bonvedro is a fantastic partner to that big bowl of pasta. This cracking version from Hesketh, made by old mate Phil Lehmann, spent time on skins to allow appropriate colour and tannins, giving the wine depth and texture – we saw plenty of vibrant red berry fruits, with some smokiness and anise. Rusden have let us get our hands on their Malbec Cabernet blend which we’re really enjoying. Plush blue Malbec fruits give way to leather, spice and some engaging green tannins from the Cabernet. Grenache wise, you’ll find three versions from Curtis Limited, Places (Kangaroo Island) and Lost Buoy. Curtis is very much true McLaren Vale Grenache, blue fruit confection, spice and exceptional length. Pop this through the decanter to turn on its fairy lights. Lost Buoy is another McLazza Grenache but on the more savoury side of the red berry colour wheel, still with great fruit sweetness - we love it! From Kangaroo Island comes Places, using hand-picked Grenache from the only plot on the island! Basket pressed with a year’s worth on old French oak results in a moorish, medium bodied wine showing spice, brambles and both red and blue fruits.
