STAFF TOP PICKS
Rob - Domaine Frantz Chagnoleau Macon-Villages 2011 (FRA) - Aromas of pear, apple and subtle spice follow onto the palate with hints of cumquat and honey dew. A slight waxiness on the palate is met with racy mineral acidity with great balance and length of flavour. A very smart Chardonnay with restrained fruit (medium intensity) and focused acidity. Pair with cold smoked trout over fresh spring asparagus and fava bean salad.
Kitty - La Prova Aglianico Rosato 2013 (SA) - Made by one of our favourite young Aussie winemakers Sam Scott, this Italian style Rosato (rose), made from the Aglianico grape is savoury, textural and dry. The perfect wine for your warm spring afternoon tipple.... Try with Barbequed lamb/haloumi burgers (and your backyard paddling pool).
Marine -Ben Haines B-Minor Shiraz Marsanne 2009 (VIC) - Twelve months aging on gross lees in oak mostly old French oak and barriques. No fining or filtration.Energetic palate with bright flowing fruit and pepper. Fragrant herbs and earthy finish, gently teased out by hints of vanilla and spice. Try with Beef Empanadas or Sirloin Steak
Alex -Graillot Heathcote Syrah 2011 (VIC) - This budding collaboration between Alain Graillot (Crozes Hermitage Legend) and Robert Walters (Australian wholesaler) has found its feet very quickly. In just their second release they have been able to produce a red wine of the year from 2011. Perfumed, elegant fruit combines with forest floor notes, graphite and a touch of smoky spice... very limited stock...Try with slow roasted baby goat and confit potatos.
