Autumn Mixed Dozen 2021
One last fleeting beach day will be best savoured with a chilled bottle of picpoul and freshly shucked oysters, vermentino would make the perfect plus one to the last backyard bash for the season. Austrian grüner veltliner will be sure to impress your friends at your favorite charming BYO restaurant. Golden roast chicken, root vegetables and jus could be matched with a cool climate chardonnay to suit the season. Then there’s a bottle that’s not quite white, not quite red - ideal for when you’re not quite sure what you want. Optimistically we’ve included a very summery rosé (fingers crossed for a warm Easter long weekend!).
To the reds - pinot noir and gamay; both versatile reds that work for all types of weather; serve chilled, or not. Eventually the days draw shorter, and the trees will begin to look bare; all you’ll want to do is curl up indoors and drink moreish reds, like Spanish tempranillo or a dark fruited blend from Geelong. Dust off the slow cooker - slow braised meats could be thoughtfully shared with Australian made cabernet and shiraz to nurture the soul from within.
Autumn, what’s not to love? Wooly jumpers, crunchy leaves, truffles and golden hues - pick up a dozen and embrace it!
