Mix Six Wine: The Primo Pack

These quality-driven wines are refined and layered examples of some of our favourite grape varietals.

2012 Lambrook ‘Emerson’ Blanc de Noirs
This Pinot Noir-based sparkling from Lambrook, based in the Adelaide Hills, is unquestionably delicious. Look for elements of complex spice and structure amongst the expected notes of red fruits and patisserie. Adelaide Hills

2017 Pooley Riesling
A chiselled, expressive and classic Riesling which hails from 30-year-old vines. To taste, a driving line of grapefruit sits comfortably beside elements of extract and quinine bitterness. Coal River Valley

2015 Domaine Gérard Duplessis Petit Chablis
We’re overcome with giddiness when Chardonnay speaks of place above all else. And this Petit Chablis is the perfect case in point: white stone fruits move towards zesty citrus, before a delicate smattering of sea shells. Chablis

2015 Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Bourgogne Passetoutgrain
Beautiful, floral aromas precede a palate of crunchy, sappy red berries and savoury spice. A superb example of the classic, Burgundian blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay. Burgundy

2016 Elio Grasso ‘Gavarini’ Langhe Nebbiolo
While the Baroli at this Monforte d’Alba address are dark and brooding, this entry-level Langhe Nebbiolo is lifted, open and ready for immediate enjoyment. Brimming with crackly red fruits, spice and fresh floral notes. Langhe

2015 Yangarra ‘Old Vine’ Grenache
From 1946-planted, unirrigated bush vines located on sandy soils. Heady scents of cherry, redcurrant, potpourri and spice. It seemingly hits all points of the compass before a mélange of sweet-savoury flavours combine with a lick of tannin. McLaren Vale
