OUR FAVE THINGS ABOUT THESE WINES

BRUT ROSÉ MÉTHODE CAP CLASSIQUE
She vowed to never use anything but traditional Champagne grapes (usually Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) but the Shiraz on her farm was just too good to let go – and it has made Melissa Nelson’s first rosé bubble an absolute stunner!

JURASSIQUE
It really does tick all the boxes – refreshing as you like but with an otherworldly substance that makes it perfect to pair with any festive feast.

BARDOLINO
We’ve said it before and we will say it again, we live for an underdog! Bardolino is often compared to Beaujolais, which, as far as the French are concerned, does not always carry the same sex appeal as its neighbour Burgundy (Bardolino is right next to Valpolicella, so it can relate). Yet Beaujolais and Bardolino share some of the most wonderful “quaffing” characteristics. Sadly, some of the best examples are often wildly underappreciated. We’re here to tell you that we’re championing this wine. All. Day. Long.

ABOUT UNICO ZELO

Laura and Brendan Carter have an intense commitment to sustainability - a unique zeal some might say (= unico zelo in Italian - read on to find out why). They planted 35 different varietals to see which could grow without irrigation in the harsh Australian climate and ended with a handful of native Italian grapes they now craft into wonderfully smashable wines aimed at the next generation of wine drinkers.

THE GOOD THINGS THEY DO
OUR FAVE THING ABOUT THIS WINE
For starters, if you’ve met Cami & Leigh-Ann, you’d know that we live for Grenache – anytime, anywhere. Fifi is a Pinot Gris fanatic and Jamie loves her Italian varieties. So this fun little number is quite the mash-up of our girls. But that’s not all! It also harks on the influence that Japanese culture has had on the UZ ethos and branding. Laura, one half of the winemaking duo, grew up between Tokyo and Bangkok – a piece of herself that shines through in every bottle. All in all, this wine and the winery it comes from are doing some seriously cool things and we love them for it.
THE TECHNICAL STUFF
Place: Clare Valley, Riverland, & Adelaide Hills, Australia
Grape: Sangiovese, Grenache, Pinot Gris
Style: Bone dry
Ingredients: Grapes + SO2

ABOUT LE FRAGHE

A tale as old as time, women in wine baby! Matilde Poggi’s first harvest, on her family-owned 15th-century farmhouse, happened in 1984. She worked tirelessly at a time when large, quantity-driven firms and cooperatives dominated local production. Rather than following the masses, Matilde chose to concentrate on quality, revamping her vineyards to better express the area’s native grapes. Today, she is one of Italy’s most respected producers, and, in 2013 was elected President of the Federazione Italiana Vignaioli Indipendenti (Italian Federation of Independent Grape Growers or FIVI). More recently, she became the first Italian and first female president of the European equivalent, the European Confederation of Independent Winegrowers (CEVI).

Matilde has three daughters, to whom she’d like to pass on Le Fraghe one day (but we’re volunteering in case her girls don’t want it – wanna come?).

THE GOOD THINGS THEY DO
Matilde’s farming & winemaking is certified organic and super low intervention – to the point that it’s often only Matilde herself working on the farm & in the cellar. Her work at FIVI and CEVI, as the voice of small independent wine producers, is invaluable.
OUR FAVE THING ABOUT THIS WINE
Italy isn’t exactly famous for its rosé, but Matilde takes her Chiaretto (chiaro = pale) very seriously. She uses a method called Saignée for this one – which means a portion of the pink juice is poured off from the red wine fermentation, to give a pink wine. This also results in a more concentrated red wine (more concentrated because the remaining fermentation has a higher solid-to-liquid ratio).
THE TECHNICAL STUFF
Place: Cavaion Veronese, Veneto, Italy
Grape: Corvina, Rondinella
Style: Plucky lil’ pink
Ingredients: Grapes, Bentonite + SO2 (being certified organic in Italy, she's only allowed to use half the sulphur that other producers are allowed. Matilde uses about half of that)
