Don’t let the fact it’s all over Instagram put you off. This orange-y kind of rose is a humid weather godsend. Kicking things off with a salty flash, you’ll get plenty of peachy stonefruit, pear and white pepper. The smashability of this stuff is hectic. Mischief will occur.

Australia’s quintessential Pyrenees foothills. Low yield. A pinch of the artistic. Boundless enthusiasm. And some bloody good grapes. It’s a foolproof recipe, but Pyren certainly suffers no fools. Gun winemaker Leighton Joy is all about the experimentation, from dabbling in whole bunch to carbonic maceration. His creative nous tends to buck convention and make a strong case for staying curious, always.

FROM THE WINEMAKER

94% Shiraz free run juice and 6% Sauvignon Blanc. Both varieties have been harvested on 03/03 and allowed to settle before being blended and co-fermented under a temperature-controlled ferment of 16 degrees Celsius. The resulting wine has been rested for 7 months in used 300L French oak before being transferred to tank to settle further in preparation for bottling, unfined and unfiltered on 02/02/19. A leaping aroma of roadside wild cherry plum, beurre bosc pear, subtle vanilla with struck match and flint reflecting static elevage on lees. Bellied in a silky texture, manifesting as uncontrollably drinkable.

FOOD MATCH

Ok so if the sun’s out, the rose’s out. That’s a rule, no quibbling. So we’ll want something light-ish. Think warm-climate cuisine, like Mexican, Greek or Thai. Ooft, some seafood tacos handed round on a rooftop. Now we’re talking...
