The New McLaren Vale 3-Pack
There's been a lot of focus on the Adelaide Hills by those seeking the cutting edge of Australian natural wine. And for good cause. But there are other places outside of the hills that are making elegant, interesting reds that are totally at home at the table or the eski.
Jauma's 'UJO' is a purple-fruited, briary thirst quencher made from whole bunch Cabernet Franc, Chenin Blanc and Shiraz from McLaren Vale.
Worlds Apart's inaugural 'Blewitt Springs' Grenache is a restrained, elegant expression of the grape that takes inspiration from the greatest of all Grenache wines – Chateau Rayas.
Poppolvej's 'Zoonotic Spillover' is perhaps the richest of the bunch with dark fruit and the classic charcuterie flavour that the best Mourvèdre wines achieve.
