Wine Revolution’s 2019 Top 10 Wines

Tamburlaine Au Naturel

What better way to compile our annual top 10 wine list?  2019 Tasting Assembly alumni of course!  Such a broad range of palates, and varietal preferences but tastings are there to open up a world of new flavours and styles. However, there was a commonality amongst the alumni with an appreciation of a winemaker’s hard working efforts in producing wine that is better for the environment and consumer. The final payoff? A wine that tastes better too.

Rebel Wine Chats: Dune Wine’s Peter Lloyd

We are huge fans of Dune wines. Honest wines with attitude, intensity, balance; all with fruit from their own healthy vineyards. The Lloyd brothers have been converting their vineyard to organic to restore soil health. They see it as the way of the future but are honest about their concerns. It’s refreshing to have vignerons that are frank and honest about how they make their wines – just one more reason why we support Dune. Continue reading Rebel Wine Chats: Dune Wine’s Peter Lloyd

Warming Winter Whites

It’s cold and raining on a Sunday morning, coffee’s on, the heater is blasting and you have no intention of getting out of your PJs until after midday. Planning the all important dining menu for the day, you decide it’s the perfect day to have a casserole cooking slowing (who’s in a hurry?) allowing those developing aromas to fill the house as you binge-watch a new series.

Now onto the even more important wine accompaniment for your indulgent winters day. Most of us will instinctively reach for a bottle of a warming red but if you have a thirst for loungeroom wine adventures perhaps it’s time to consider some winter white alternatives.

Rebel Wine Chat: See Saw’s Justin Jarrett

See Saw Vineyard

See Saw Wines owners Justin and Pip Jarrett moved to Orange from Young in 1991, and bought their first block of land. Prior to the move they had wanted to grow grapes, but before committing, they also considered growing apples and protea flowers. The plan was to become fully self-employed and create a product which they could add value to; something they could put on the table, have their name behind and tell you all about it. So, they decided to go ahead with vineyards.
