Why do we love this wine?

There’s this new restaurant in town called ‘Atlas’ (opened by a lovely, but overachieving, 22-year-old) which has a new cuisine every four months. I can barely remember to feed my tamagotchi every four days let alone design a menu. Anyway, it’s crazy awesome. The only thing is, I’m already dreading the day the menu changes from Vietnamese to Israeli because I won’t be able to get that deconstructed-banh-mi-thing anymore. But I guess when you’re that good it doesn’t matter what you do, everything you make will be delicious. Which brings me to this winemaker...

Just like Charlie from Atlas, this winemaker/genius likes to travel around and get the best out of every region. Unlike young Charlie, however, they’ve been around the block more than a few times, meaning they know what do with a McLaren Vale grape.

Look at it this way: a regular banh mi is f*cking good, but Charlie’s version of a banh mi is, like, mindblowing. A regular ‘Vale shiraz is f*cking good, but this ‘maker’s version of the grape is bright, full and concentrated, red-fruits-and-a-promising-finish-kind-of-good. Drinking this – now there’s something I can remember to do every four days.
