Grant Burge 2008 East Argyle Pinot Gris

An impressive contender in the competitive pinot gris stakes; a cool-climate Eden Valley wine with enticing floral aromas, compelling fruit intensity with pear/citrus to the fore, palate softness and acid backbone. Delightful! $18.

Peter Lehmann 2008 Clancy's Rosé

This outperformed several more expensive rosés in a tasting at our place - with the early-picked fruit giving it a delightful vibrancy and freshness. Low in alcohol at 11.5%, this would be perfect chilled, on a warm day, with Lebanese food. $15.

Brokenwood 2008 Cricket Pitch White

Brokenwood's Cricket Pitch white is always a joy to drink. A blend of sauvignon blanc and semillon from Cowra and the King Valley that's partially barrel fermented, it has citrus aromas, freshness and lively acid. An absolute ripper! $19.
