Arcadia Bohemia Chardonnay 2017

YOU’D PAY $18 full price.
Château La Clapière Cru Classé Rosé 2017
Alright, this pushes the friendship of ‘white wine’, but it goes in the fridge, too. And you can’t fake this kind of fun and flavour. This rosé is one of only 18 illustrious Cru Classé estates internationally recognised as Provence’s best rosés. This particular pink is made from cinsault, grenache and syrah - it’s a super pretty wine with delicate wafts of fine perfume, tropical fruits, sage and rocky mineral notes. It’s moderate intensity, more a play on delicacy and finesse than power. It finishes peachy and plummy with a crisp citrus crunch.
YOU’D PAY $40 full price.
BLACK MARKET Riesling 2017
Clare Valley, South Australia
95pts Sam Kim | 5 star Halliday rated winery
Superb young riesling here, from the best Clare vintage since the epic 2012. It’s not a steely citrus tastebud assault, so it’s approachable and friendly. But it’s not lacking in definition or expression either. Fruit comes in the form of grapefruit pith, lemon flesh and white peach, with a smack around the face of freshly washed continental parsley and coriander. It’s fine and clean, with just enough sweetness to do its job with aplomb: match any and all food that goes on a Lazy Suzan.
YOU’D PAY $22 full price.
