Le Grappin Savigny les Beaune | Burgundy | Pinot Noir | 2015 |

Le Grappin is produced by Australian Andrew Nielsen, who has worked at Felton Rd in Central Otago and Coldstream Hills in Yarra. He buys grapes from 'underappreciated' regions of Burgundy and uses 'natural' winemaking techniques to produce pure wines according to his philosophy. 
This pinot noir is from the 'Aux Fournaux' lieux dit in Savigny les Beaune. According to Raw Wine website, the 2014 had 60 mg/L of total sulphites but I'm not sure about 2015.

We had this at Ash St Cellars in Sydney and though the red fruits and elegant body was evident, the bottle was served too warm. Serving burgundy too warm gives the wine a heavy richness and weight and this is unfortunately a common practice in many restaurants and bars. 
We asked for it to be chilled in ice and after 10-15 mins, the wine was 'crunchier' with the acidity being allowed to balance the bountiful juicy fruit flavours.

All in all, a really enjoyable pinot noir produced by an Aussie in Burgundy posted to celebrate Bastille day in Australia 😁

Hervé Villemade Cheverny Cuvee Domaine Rouge | Loire Valley | Pinot Noir-Gamay | 2016 |

Hervé Villemade Estate produces low intervention organic wines in the Loire Valley. They practice minimal use of sulphur. 
The 2016 vintage was apparently a challenging one for the Loire, with frost reducing quantities greatly. While the quantity may have been low,  the quality is still high as shown by this wine. 
The 2016 cuvee rouge is a 60:40 blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay and is smashable to say the least! It's fresh, it's lively and the fruit flavours dance across the palate but don't stay too long. A wine made to please and it did.

Luke Lambert Crudo | Yarra Valley | chardonnay | 2017 | alcohol 12.5% | rrp $25

Crudo may be Luke Lambert's secondary label however, the wine still offers a solid example of Yarra Valley chardonnay. 
Fresh and vibrant, the wine has fruit flavours of green apples, lemon and lime with flavours of cashews on the finish.  Texturally, the wine is lovely with crunchy acidity and a slightly creamy body.

The wine is good with food or without food but even better when shared amongst friends 😉. -Tank

Domaine Gramenon La Sagesse | Cotes Du Rhone | France | Grenache | 2016 |

From an iconic Domaine, this rich grenache comes from 60 year old vines. Domaine Gramenon practice organic and biodynamic farming and have a philosophy of low intervention natural winemaking. They bottle with minimal sulfur if needed.

I really enjoyed this full bodied CDR, at just two years young, it needs a little air time to fully open up. When it does, it exhibits beautiful fruit flavours from a spectrum of soft red to suprisingly dark and ripe. The tannins are there but are pleasant and the finish is long. This would age very well in the next 2-5 years. A terrific example of how sustainable farming and natural winemaking can produce vibrant, authentic and delicious wines.

Yarra Yering Dry Red No 2 | Shiraz | Yarra Valley | 2010 |

We were lucky to find this half bottle of the 2010 vintage at Felix Bistro in Sydney and even luckier that it was $40 😍

For me it's one of the best representations of shiraz in Australia. Blended with small amounts of Mataro, Viognier and Marsanne, it is certainly fruit driven but balanced. The flavour is complex yet elegant and rich. The finish is memorably long. 
I confess that as a lover of Victorian Pinot Noirs, I'm really enjoying the medium to fuller bodied wines from Yarra Valley these days. Maybe even more so than the classic Pinot Noirs but I guess that's how good this wine is 😅 - Ash P

Domaine M Lapierre Morgon | Beaujolais | France | Gamay | 2016 | 
What is a natural wine? For me it's simply wine that has arrived from the vine to the cellar without the use of chemicals and additives in any way. It results in a true flavour expresion and makes me feel good during and after drinking!

This gamay is a great example of such a natural. From 60 year old vines, it's a great introduction for your friends who may shy away from natural wines because they find it a bit too funky and wild. It is elegant, energetic and has lovely fruit flavours that really kept us coming back for more. Viva the gamay 😁 - Ash P

Wynn's Black Label | Coonawarra, SA | Cabernet Sauvignon | 2015
Cool nights and Coonawarra Cab Sav, it's almost as if they were made for each other. This 60th anniversary black label Cab Sav just oozes power straight out of the bottle. Deep, fruity, cassis, and eucalyptus, this is a classic. Good drinking now, but holding on for another few years will bring its own rewards - MW

Sinapius Home Vineyard Pinot Noir | Pipers Brook | Northern Tasmania | 2014 |

I remember tasting this at the Sinapius cellar door in 2015 and being impressed by the amazing boquet. It hasn't taken a step back in that respect with perfumed violets and red fruits which had my nose hovering on the glass for ages 😅 On first taste it had lovely fruit flavours but I was hit with pretty strong tannins too, which had me wondering whether I opened the bottle too early. After leaving it a few hours,  the tannins had settled down and the fruit was now complimented with earthiness and beautiful spice. It was a hit with all the pinot lovers at dinner and my second bottle will now sleep for another few years easily 👍👍- Ash P

Goldeneye Winery | Anderson Valley California | USA | Pinot Noir | 2010|

A friend of ours raided his cellar for this elegant Californian Pinot Noir last night. A great example of how high quality wine ages so well. Complex flavours have developed in 8 years but it's still so fresh, vibrant and approachable. Beautiful fruit set with silky tannins and the oak has integrated well. Cheers to great Californian Pinot 😁 - Ash P

| Pimpernel Hill Road Pinot Noir | Yarra Valley | Pinot Noir | 2015 | 
It’s always nice to spend a Sunday lunch with an enjoyable Yarra Valley pinot noir. From Pimpernel wines, a beautiful bright colour leads to a nose of expressive red fruits. On the palate there is plenty of well-balanced fruit, some complexity and dusty tannins. A nice wine to sit back with and not worry about Monday 😂- Ash P

This is an elegant and fresh chardonnay from Producers Domaine de la Cadette in Burgundy. The Domaine practices organic viticulture and the resulting wine has a very clean and long lasting flavour. A perfumed wine with lemon lime fruit and lovely mineral acidity makes this my kind of chardonnay – Ash P

BK Wines Red Blend | Blewitt Springs McLaren Vale, SA |  Mourvedre Shiraz Grenache | 2015

It's up for discussion as to whether or not MSG is bad for your health. One thing that is certain about this particular MSG is that it will definitely bring a smile to your face, and those around you.

I spent Friday night catching up with friends from afar that I had not seen in a long time. The location was @fixwinebar near St James in the Sydney CBD. The wine flowed, and the conversation followed, and to be honest, we were probably a little rowdy for this wonderfully cosy place 🤗

The wine itself reminded me of a dark chocolate cherry ripe. Deep purple in colour, plenty of ripe fruit, and a cold night was enough of an invitation to drink this up. Immediately lively and fresh on the palate, with the fruit then cascading through with medium length tannins. There's enough variety and character in this bottle, that it will easily satisfy those you choose to share it with... or not share it with 😁 - MW

Laurent Lebled On Est Su l'Sable | Cabernet Franc | Loire Valley | France | 2015 |

I’ve never had a Cabernet Franc quite like this. It's unfined and unfiltered and very juicy! Definitely funky on the nose and slightly fizzy on tasting. It is made naturally and tasted great chilled without any dominating vegetative flavours. It paired well with roast rack of lamb but is light enough to go with leaner proteins or on it's own- Ash P

Chain of Ponds | Amadeus Cabernet Sauvignon | Adelaide Hills | SA | 2016 |

This is my first Cabernet from Adelaide Hills, my favourite wine region in South Australia. I had this wine over 2 days, as my experience tells me full bodied Aussie wines develop well.

Day 1: I didn't decant and it was 17 degrees in Sydney, so the wine was very cool. Dark fruits and classic varietal drying tannins were my first impressions but the acidity and velvety body were pleasant. Though alcohol was nearly 15%, it didn't feel heavy.

Day 2: The fruits really came alive on day two as the wine was allowed to breathe and initially I got plum and blueberry on the palate. I then matched the wine with black pudding for dinner and the fruit flavour became rounded and the acidity shone through.

Thank you @chainofponds for sending us this wine to try. A Cabernet to drink now with its fruit elegance and in 5 years time will be sensational with great acidity and tannins carrying it through easily towards tertiary flavours - Ash P

I picked up this elegant pinot from my first trip to the Pooley Cellar door in 2015. Five years on the wine is getting complex and funky, which I enjoy! On the nose it gives fruity and earthy undergrowth tones. On tasting it's elegant, silky and lively. A great expression of quality  Tasmanian pinot - Ash P

I actually thought Bastardo was the name of the wine, as opposed to being the name of the varietal 😁 Really really happy to have tried this bottle from @linoramble as it hits everything I look for in a wine from McLaren Vale. Sumptuous and juicy, full of dark fruits and cheek sucking tannins. A great food wine, and a bottle I would happily purchase again - MW

Jean-Marc Burgaud Les Vignes de Thulon | Gamay | Beaujolais | France | 2016 | 
I'm in Melbourne but on transition to international wines. I'm particularly keen on French wines atm, which seem to be more fresher for my liking than the new world vino. I've enjoyed Jean-Marc Burgaud before and this 2016 gamay has lovely perfume when first poured into the glass. It follows with cherry fruit, earthiness and lively acidity to keep it going. We had this with super tasty pizza from #lazerpig pizza Parlour - great pizza, wine and an extra long weekend, can't ask for more 😉 - Ash P
