Beat the heat with these chillable reds
Published on: December 6, 2022

Try these lightly chilled as the summer heat descends….


2020 Côtes du Rhône Rouge Parallèle 45
Rhone Valley, France

“Lifted bouquet of bright cherry hints of garrigue. Lively and fresh and juicy on the palate, offering red cherry and undertones of earthy spice. Excellent length with a honeysuckle and jasmine flourish to the long finish.” I liked the wine’s complex dark plum and spices. It’s full-bodied, dense and savoury and distinctly needs food.”

2020 Louis Latour Fleurie
‘Les Garans’

Beaujolais, France

Beautiful black cherry aromas on the nose. On the palate it is full and fresh with mocha and cherry flavors and a nice length.

2020 Louis Latour Morgon

2022 Sherrah Preservative Free Grenache
McLaren Vale, SA

Lifted and Luscious, fruit driven with a structured finish.

2022 Golden Child
‘Manic Monday’ Pinot Noir
McLaren Vale, SA

Super aromatic with pretty red fruits and a nice line of acidity.

2021 In Praise of Shadows ‘Mankai’
McLaren Vale, SA

“Blend of garnacha, monastrell, touriga and graciano. A slurpy wine with a bristle of tannin and squeegee of maritime salinity, for freshness. Reminiscent of something poured with gusto over a bar in the south of France. Lilac, crisp nori, blue-to-purple fruit allusions and some dried thyme scattered across the slightly edgy finish.  I’d be drinking this with a good chill and a giddy smile at the ready for the next glass.”

Light, vibrant and delicious, intense juicy dark raspberry, liquorice and spicy dark cherry flavours overlay a background of smoky incense infusions, earth, dried herbs and pepper.

Bright and brambly without being too earthy, this obscure Greek varietal offers black raspberry and pomegranate. Medium in body but would be fantastic slightly chilled.
