Basket Range 2017 Adelaide Hills Red Blend

Back in the 1980's Phil Broderick started planted a humble selection of Bordeaux varieties nestled in the Adelaide Hills.  Though his sons took over in 2016 and started to create a series of fun, modern, and experimental wines, Phil still makes a small amount of his original line of elegant, classic, Bordeaux-inspired bottles and we get them for an incredible value. This blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot aged in neutral oak, and  at only 13% ABV this is no fruit-bomb. The palate is full and silky, sun-kissed  plums, black cherry, roasted pepper and herbs. It is meant to the perfect companion to a range of heartier fare, or keep this in your cellar for 5-10 years to  see how it evolves! Michelle DeWyngaert

Sam Vinciullio 2018 Margaret River, Western Austra Cow Town Red

This is the Australian Shiraz I always hoped for! Sam Vinciullo has been making wine under his own label since 2015, and as of last year is farming all of the vines himself. His vines are own-rooted, dry-farmed, and farmed with the use of chemicals only as a very last resort. The vineyard is located in Margaret River, near the town of Cowaramup (hence the name "Cow Town") on mostly sandy soil with pockets of gravel and ironstone. The "Cow Town Red" is a bottling of 100% Shiraz fermented and aged, like all of his wines, with no oak used, no additives (including sulfur), and no filtering or temperature control. The nose of this wine sends you immediately to Australia with notes of eucalyptus and sandalwood, followed by ripe plum, violets and crushed black pepper. Because of the use of concrete barrels instead of oak, and without using pump-overs, the wine remains vibrant and clean, while retaining density and a silky texture. There is plenty to contemplate in this wine on its own, but it will also make an excellent pairing for charred, grilled proteins and herbaceous sauces. Michelle DeWyngaert
