(2017) There's such a range of 'alternative varieties' planted in Australia now, and Victoria seems to be home to more than most. Indigenous to northern Italy, this Barbera is typically deep and vibrant in colour, and driven by its racy, Indian inky cherry skin fruit that is bittersweet with the bite of cherry skin tannin and acidity against the sweet flesh of the fruit. There's a pleasing herb or coal dust dry mineral quality to add interest too in a highly quaffable style.
(2016) Tarrango is a cross of Portugal's noble Touriga Nacional and the humble Sultana grape, bottled here by Brown Brothers as a deeply coloured rosé (or a very light red) that has aromas of spices and coffee, cherry and plummy fruit, and something a little bit briary and Pinot-like. In the mouth it is not heavy with only 12.5% alcohol, but it has a creamy texture and whilst there is dry red fruit, it is that coffee and spice and an earthiness that gives this a bit of seriousness and savouriness. Watch the video for more information and food-matching ideas.
(2016) This is one that is sadly sold out, but hopefully you may have a bottle or two in your cellar. It's a really good, authentic Yarra Pinot with beauitfully refined and racy raspberry and cherry, as well as proper Pinot sappiness and beetroot earthiness. Delightfully ripe and seductive on the palate too, just warmed by oak but with a dry, balanced finish.
(2014) >From the Grampians in Victoria, this has gorgeous lift on the nose, with floral violet aspects, touches of eucalyptus, and mint, chocolate-touched black fruits but so ripe and appealing. The palate has masses of sweetness, and has such lovely life and energy about it, flooded with fruit but again retaining that elegant freshness too. Really great performance from a stalwart.
(2011) Delightful summer stuff in a lighter, Pinot-ish vein.
