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 Blanc and Fiano 2020$ 22.00 incl. GST
All grapes reveal their personalities here, with grassy Savvy B meeting the aromatic lift of Zibbibo and the honeysuckle of Fiano. In all, fun juice well made for dropping in the esky and taking to the park over the summer months.
22 Degree Halo Shiraz Nero 2020$ 22.00 incl. GST
An odd blend which works a treat – previously Cabernet-led, 2020 saw an ultra juicy Shiraz crop which was perfect for this gluggable wine, blended with herbal Nero d’Avola. Rippling with small red berries, dried herbs and a lick of cola, this juicy and zippy vino screams for pizza, pasta, or pretty much any Mediterranean fare and beyond. Fun juice, as the cool kids say.
22 Degree Halo Kaleidoscope of Mayhem 2020$ 22.00 incl. GST
A kaleidoscopic blend of Mataro, Durif, Grenache, Touriga Nacional and Aglicanico. So many dimensions, a fun and juicy red for park guzzling, backed with some proper interest, complexities and a savoury inky line through its middle. So much interest and personality at this price point.
22 Degree Halo Rose Mataro, Aglianico, Vermentino 2020$ 22.00 incl. GST
Zippy, zingy, juicy and bloody good fun. Drenched with blackberry and red fruit, a twist of Campari herbs, guzzling rosé with complexity and personality plus.
