Basket Range 2017 'Pamplemousse' Red Blend

"Pamplemousse" is a blend of organically-farmed Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the Adelaide in South Australia. Brothers Louis and Sholto Broderick source the fruit from vines planted by their parents in the 1980s. The brothers are one of the few winemakers in Australia to be working totally "natural" -- meaning no added sulphur or acidification; they ferment the grapes with native yeast and strive to make clean, pure-fruited, honest vin de soif. This brightly colored bottle beckons with aromas of cherry liqueur, grapefruit pith, and eucalyptus. The palate is light and lip-smacking, with low tannins, mouthwatering acidity and flavors of tart citrus, watermelon, basil and lime zest. A charming wine to chill and enjoy with or without food.

Borachio 2018 Adelaide Hills "Pash Rash" Pet Nat

“Pash Rash” is 100% direct-press Pinot Noir that was bottled during fermentation with 8 grams of residual sugar (and nothing else) to become a delicious pétillant naturel. The wine’s color of electric grapefruit juice beams through the haze of sediment like the noon sun through soft clouds. Aromas of lime and zesty grapefruit pith lead to similar flavors on the zippy, thirst-quenching palate. For the adventurous: the winemakers suggest adding Mezcal for a real g’day. Amanda Bowman

Paxton 2015 McLaren Vale Shiraz

We've been fans of the Paxtons since we started carrying their wines in 2008. Though we've never walked through the vineyards in Australia, we have hosted tastings with the Paxton family over the years, and they're great people. Their wines are also very delicious. This is a Shiraz blended from four of of their bio-dynamically farmed vineyard parcels, and giving a fresh but very generous introduction to the McLaren Vale region. There's a subtle touch of oak that blends perfectly with the lush silky Shiraz fruit. A full bodied wine, for sure, but with great balance and drink-ability.
