Darren’s Mixed Dozen
These are some of the best value picks from my 2023 lunches. Tried and tested by you, they’ve been an enormous hit and will be brilliant summer drinking. Here’s what you get (with my notes underneath!) –
2 x Colours of the South Pinot Gris, Barossa SA
Vibrant and textural, it is lively in the glass with plenty of citrus, orchard fruit and floral notes.
2 x Soul Growers Vine Vale Grenache Blanc, Barossa SA
Balanced and elegant – perfect summer drinking with or without food.
2 x Whistler Dry as a Bone Rose, Barossa SA
Does what it says on the tin – soft, dry Rose that unlike some still retains plenty of character in the glass.
2 x St. Brioc Montepulciano, McLaren Vale SA
Lashings of dark fruit and a light touch of oak – perfect for the BBQ
2 x Sevenhill Inigo Grenache, Clare Valley, SA
Vibrant berries and cherries give way to a softer mouthfeel and a touch of herbs and spice. Delicious!
2 x Thorn-Clarke Shotfire Shiraz, Barossa SA
Well, I had to get one in there, didn’t I. It’s full-bodied deep, rich Barossa goodness…
