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 Rose Mataro, Aglianico, Vermentino 2021$ 22.00 incl. GST
Grenache, Mataro and Nero d’Avola, 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 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.
Winter 2021 Mixed Dozenincl. GST
Leaning towards reds here, we’re running the spectrum from juiciness courtesy of 22 Degree Halo, to mid week quaffers in Baron Léopold’s delicious Bordeaux red. We’ve some bright Italian flavours through Insieme Primitivo, Intrigo Negroamaro and Greenstone’s excellent 2017 Sangiovese release, plus a couple of lovely fireside contenders in Schwarz Meta Shiraz and Lenton Brae Lady Douglas Cabernet.
The occasional moment calls for something other than red, so a Montfin rosé is perfect for when you’re eating spicy, and the Brackenwood Riesling and Lenton Brae Chardonnay both nicely textured and not out of place in these cooler months.
Full price of this dozen is $330. We’re offering it at $265 with free delivery, a saving of 20%.
