Sunday with Sophie Si Vintners’ 2016 rosé is the kind of dame that burrows into your tastebuds so that you’re left with an indelible impression. She’s refreshing & savoury, clean & elegant, made for enjoying in the summer shade. 100% Pinot Noir from a low cropping 40 yr-old naturally farmed block in the Margaret River, basket pressed & matured in concrete eggs. Just 1000 bottles produced & no more around (soz), but y’all can get your hands on the 2017!

La Clarine Farm ‘greco’ grenache/counoise, Methode Sauvage pinot gris/noir/trousseau, Cruse valdiguié, Martha Stoumen nero d’avola, J. Brix merlot, and Vinca Minor carignan
An exciting week - new Juice shipments have landed and there are all sorts of new goodies available! Bonhomme, Weninger, Wetzer - Loire, Austria, and Hungary all covered. Deliciously crushable Furmint and Kekfrankos anyone?
