Act of Wine

Regular price $147.00

Take the guesswork out of buying wine and pick up a bit of everything. A bunch of groovy wines, mainly local that we love and want to share with you.

NV Toma Castells Cava

This is a project of two families from northern Spain taking great care with this delicious Cava, organically farmed near Vilafranca del Penedès in Spain; it is well balanced, clean and the ideal aperitif, this is the heart of Spanish everyday drinking. A fresh and crisp blend of Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel·lo. Three varieties native to the Catalonia area of Spain.

Pale straw in colour, lightly aromatic lemon curd and chamomile, a gentle hint of sunflower and pear seed rest upon a mouthfeel reminiscent of something close to fluffed meringue making this one dangerously gulpable bottle of fizz

2020 Animale Amber Gris

Pinot Gris from the Cahillton vineyard in the Yarra Valley. 70% direct pressed and 30% left on skins for two weeks. It's light on colour, could almost pass as a rose. A bit savoury on the nose as well as some faint red rose petal aromas. The palate is a bit creamy, orange citrus, and some light red fruits too. Finely textured. Good stuff.

2020 Somos Naranjito
100% Verdelho, farmed biodynamically in McLaren Vale, South Australia. This wine is such a vivid and hazy orange colour. Complexity is king here, ginger, marzipan, baked fruit and almond husk on the nose. The palate has depth too. Tangy cumquat, caramel and honey. Grippy tannins with a toasty savoury finish.

2015 Fatalone Teres Rosato

In the 19th century, Petrera Nicola built his home on the hill named ‘Spinomarino.’ He chose this place for it’s lofty, well-aired and sunny position to mainly grow Primitivo. The land was cleared and adequate infrastructure was developed. In the new generation, Pasquale Petrera led the estate’s march towards organic certification and ensures the wines are made in a minimal intervention style, mainly using stainless steel for fermentation to highlight the purity of fruit. In the cellar, classical music is played to the barrels to help the barrels settle.

Borderline rosato-light red wine. Cherries, strawberries and a slight spritz on the tongue. Light texture. 

2020 Das Juice Red

Our juicy light red is perfect with a chill. The 2020 harvest is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) and Merlot (50%) from the organic Zirella vineyard in Tatachilla and Pinot Noir (20%) from Peters Creek. All grapes were hand picked and whole bunch carbonic macerated for 8 days before were pressed to tank for a slow natural ferment.

2019 Berthier L'Instant

For several generations, the Berthier family has farmed their vineyards in central Loire Valley.

In 1998 the Estate grew with the takeover of the Domaine de Montbenoit in the Coteaux du Giennois, inherited from Jean Marie’s grandfather’s vineyard. Clément, a former cellar master in the USA, is now devoted to winemaking and marketing. Florian, with his experiences in Burgundy and New Zealand, manages the vineyard. The vines grow on clay-limestone soil, grapes are hand-harvested then delicately pressed.

The bouquet is lush and seductive, blackcurrants, cherries n berries, and lovely earthy tones. The palate coats the mouth with delicious mixed berries and silky, polished tannins. This wine would look extra-smart laying down for a year or two.
