If you’ve ever met Bress winemaker Adam Marks you will clearly remember and probably have a story or two about antics or racy anecdotes you were subjected to. The winery is based in the Harcourt Valley and embraces the holistic natural farming approach that is biodynamics. The wines are all great, with fruit sourced from all over Australia.
Phenolic, grassy, mineral and clean. This is a pretty classy showing, that will pair well with some nice snapper. It is also very enjoyable to serve nice and cold on a warm day. Don’t cellar, just gleefully drink.
Heathcote – The glamour region of Victoria for lovers of big reds. And the core production is Shiraz and Cabernet with ‘guts’. But it is a region that offers a lot of diversity when you scratch the surface. The cooler southern parts border Macedon and make lovely aromatic wines. There is a lot of experimentation and adoption of more drought resistant Italian varieties to great effect too.
Vermentino – An impressive white grape suited to warm coastal regions from Liguria down to Bolgheri and Sardinia. Rich aromatics and great texture.
