2015 SC Pannell Aromatico

I sure do love a good blend of aromatic white wine varietals. They tend to really suit these warmer summer months, as well as my penchant for spicy S.E. Asian dishes. This one comes from one of Australia's most celebrated wine makers S.C. Pannell, who has been producing a lot of great wines over the past few years. This one is a blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Pinot Gris.

Aromas of lychee and rosewater alongside lime and a hint of pear. The palate is clean with citrus tang and maybe a touch of saline character, which adds some nice complexity.

Overall, a fun, delicious, and crowd pleasing wine.

2013 Yabby Lake 'Red Claw' Pinot Gris

The Red Claw range from Mornington Peninsula's Yabby Lake consists of their entry level wines, many of which offer good value and are generally quite easy to track down. Fruit is sourced from the Yabby Lake estate vineyard, whole bunch pressed, and left for extended lees contact.

Tropical fruit and citrus aromas develop over a short period of time into softer aromas of pear and apple, with underlying notes of honey and spice. Time spent on lees is noticeable with hints of fresh baked bread. A nice soft mid length palate with mild acidity. An all round good Mornington Peninsula Pinot Gris that is readily available in many bottle shops.
