Basket Range 2018 Adelaide Hills "Deja Vu" Pinot Noir

"Deja Vu" is 100% Pinot Noir from brothers Sholto & Louis Broderick's family estate in the Basket Range, South Australia. Their father, Phillip, has been farming organically and making wines since the 1980s; and where his style is traditional for the region, his sons have fully embraced the "new" style. Their vines are planted high on dramatically sloping hills where the grapes ripen easily in the summer sun, yet maintain their acidity  from the cool nights. The sons pick their Pinot early to achieve  refreshing, crunchy acidity in their wine, which is fermented with native yeasts in neutral barrels without sulfur additions. The 2018 offers aromas of bramble fruit, damp soil, violets, and black cherry. The palate is light with powdery tannins and offers flavors of cherry, underripe blueberries, and savory spice. A playful Pinot Noir that is superb with a chill alongside grilled meats and summer vegetables. Amanda Bowman

Commune of Buttons 2018 Adelaide Hills "Field of Sparrows" Blend

Meet the newest addition to our lineup of blissful wines to drink now and again and again! Siblings Jasper and Sophie Button are behind the family-owned winery called "Commune of Buttons" in the Basket Range, South Australia. The young Buttons took over the vineyards for their mom in 2013 and introduced organic principles and some biodynamic practices to the vines. A little digging into the local natural wine community will lead you right back to the Buttons -as they supply their organic fruit to some of the most respected wineries in the area. The 2018 "Field of Sparrows" is a jubilant blend of co-fermented Pinot Gris, Viognier, and Shiraz. The wine is a festive shade of red carnation in the glass and offers plucky aromas of sour cherry, peppery spice, and white flowers. The palate is light and breezy with a refreshing notes of tart strawberry, pepper, and stone on the finish. A lovely execution of a low-sulfur wine - bravo! Amanda Bowman
