A 22 degree halo is a visual moon ring, and according to folklore warns of forecoming climatic change. These stepping stone wines bring together grapes which originate from cooler European regions, with adaptive grape varieties well reputed to making great wines in our warm Australian climate. Grown in South Australia’s Riverland and produced by the forward thinking alternative varieties champion Ashley Ratcliffe, these are wines for our changing times.
22 Degree Halo Sauvignon Zibbibo Doradillo 2022$ 22.00 incl. GST
Grassy Savvy B meets the aromatic lift of Zibbibo with Doradillo adding texture and complexities. In all, fun juice well made for dropping in the esky and taking to the park over the summer months. Gluggable park wine with interest and focus.
22 Degree Halo Rose 2022$ 22.00 incl. GST
Sangiovese and Vermentino, blended to an ultra pale orange-tinged shade of pink. Tangy, lip smacking and bursting with flavour, watermelon juice, blood orange, summer flowers, loads of flavour and a bigger body than the light colour suggests. A great pairing with barbecued vegetables and meats, curries, and any warm climate inspired dining, another ripping release from Ash and team.
22 Degree Halo Chill with the Moon 2022$ 22.00 incl. GST
Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro and Moscato Giallo, blended to make a properly chillable red wine. The bridge between red wine and rosé you need in your life! Crammed with cherries and berries, it glides down easily. Fruity but not overly so, and enough grip of tannin to remind you you’re drinking wine, a definite favourite for summer barbecues or anything with spice. A worthy addition to this growing category.
22 Degree Halo Zibbibo Greco Pét Nat 2022$ 28.00 incl. GST
First Pét Nat release for 22 Degree Halo, and boy is this fun. Loads of bright flavours, pith, citrus and passionfruit, rounded out by a cleansing wash of bubbles. Ultra easy drinking, fruit driven without being tutti-fruity, balanced with just the right amount of citrus rind bitterness.
