Not to be one always looking back, whenever I start a new year I try and think about all the great times of last year and it helps me get really up for all the challenges and possibilites for 2020.
So whilst most of you are doing Dry January or something equally as healthy to overcome the post-Christmas and New Year booze/chocolate/meat comas, I thought I’d start the year with a quick recap of the wines that meant a lot to me in 2019…
SEPTEMBER – YEALAND’S STATE OF FLUX
Any time you get a chance to meet Natalie Christensen, winemaker at Yealand’s Estate, you take it. She’s a very cool person who brightens up any room she walks in… oh and she makes top wines.
This time around was my first go at the new “State of Flux” range out of Yealands. Very minimal intervention winemaking, touch of sulphur just to stabilise at bottling, but otherwise this is really expressive fruit in a bottle, a real game changer for them I feel. Be quick though, it’s selling out like hot cakes!!
