Mix Six Wine: The Lo-fi Pack

Six lo-fi wines that are bright, refreshing and thought-provoking.

2017 Yetti and the Kokonut Mt. Savagnin
A squeaky-clean, orange Savagnin that might be from McLaren Vale, but provides a serious nod to France’s Jura region. Saline acidity, chalky minerality and white stone fruits mark the experience. McLaren Vale

2017 Patrick Sullivan ‘Pink Pound’ Rosé
Gone are the added bells and whistles of white grapes: the 2017 edition of ‘Pink Pound’ is purely Pinot Noir. It wears its drinkability proudly via a slippery texture and lovely notes of musk, blossom and macerated red berries. Victoria

2017 Sang de Soleil Chenin Blanc
From the team at Blood Moon Wines comes this playful Chenin Blanc from Sunbury. Complex notes of lemon barley, almond kernel and stone fruits before a tightening line of vibrant acidity washes over. Sunbury

2015 Mahana Estates ‘Davey’s Lease’ Sauvignon Blanc
Ex-Bannockburn winemaker, Michael Glover, has created a skin-contact Sauvignon Blanc showing beautiful palate weight and drive. It’s certified organic too and layered with honey, acacia wood and green capsicum elements. Nelson

2017 Little Reddie ‘New!’ Nebbiolo Refosco
Here, two northern Italian varietals – Nebbiolo and Refosco – combine to deliver a wine of balance and crowd-pleasing capability (read: bright bramble and a little leafiness). Delicious. Heathcote

2017 Mada Wines Syrah Nouveau
This summertime red is a perfect candidate for chilling down. A super-primary, purple-carbonic nose and light spritz to begin. Which is backed up brilliantly with bright blackberries, confected plums and a nip of tannin. Murrumbateman
