Description

Is it a place? Is it a frame of mind? Is it attainable by the beardless? These are but some of the questions to ponder while enjoying these wines. Curated and sometimes blended by The Wine Depository owner Philip Smith.

Whatever your facial hair situation you are guaranteed to get a wine that offers value and flavour well beyond compare. The Bearded State team is committed to finding you interesting wine varieties and styles that are approachable, enjoyable and great value.

Pears, red and green apples, grapey, floral lift. Dry and lean palate with just a hint of fruit weight. Easy drinking and refreshing.

McLaren Vale – The maritime climate and sandy soils of McLaren Vale make it a great place for growing grapes. Reds in particular excel here. Shiraz of course, but the Spanish varieties Grenache and Tempranillo seem well suited too. The maritime climate helps mitigate some of the heat from the SA summers and the sandy soils mean that phylloxera could not survive and so they have some of the oldest vines in the world.

Chenin Blanc may not be the most popular or the most famous wine grape, but the good examples are seriously good! Lovely, fleshy/flowery apples and pears, a nice mineral – flinty streak, lemon zest and a touch of dough. I have always described good Chenin as feeling pillowy and I stand by that. Round and fluffy mouth feel but the zesty acid kicks it into shape.
