PRIME YOURSELF, BRISBANE. YOUR 2022 WINE LIST HAS DROPPED!

 

150+ pinots. 70+ wineries. 3 Sessions

It’s time for a strategy.

While we’re always down for crazy spontaneity as an approach to tasting pinot, we think the way to win at Pinot Palooza is to start with a plan. Our suggestion? Make a Pinot Playlist; and just like your Greatest Jams on Spotify, it pays to mix it up.

If nothing else, our events are all about discovery. This is your chance to mix it up.  Heck, be someone else for a day and try on some new pinots for size – no commitment necessary. How? Explore wines from a region you’ve never tried before, sample something expensive alongside something new and experimental, find your ultimate Netflix and chill wine – go nuts!

WHAT’S YOUR PINOT PLAYLIST?

—————
VEGAN, ORGANIC, BIODYNAMIC AND LOW-INTERVENTION WINES

Yep, we heard you. You said you wanted to make it easier to pick out the vegan, organic, biodynamic and lo-fi wines at our events, so this year we’re giving them to you on a platter – with icons!

But what does it all mean? Some background on our categories:

Vegan wines are made without the usual dairy or animal proteins to fine or filter the wine. Organic wines are made from grapes grown without artificial or synthetic chemicals, in certified organic vineyards. Biodynamic wines are similarly chemical-free, with an added focus on managing the whole vineyard as an ecosystem and generally adding fewer sulphates to the wines. Fun fact: all wines were minimal until 1847, when chemicals first became available to farmers. These days, Minimal/Low Intervention wines are unfined and unfiltered and free from any post-fermentation additives.

AUSTRALIA

Australia is a big country, with a bunch of diverse micro-climates, which means we produce a pretty huge range of different pinot noir styles.

With around 15 different regions producing pinot, you’ll have plenty of new favourites to discover. From Gippsland to Beechworth, Macedon to Pemberton, Mornington to the Bellarine, Yarra Valley to the Huon Valley, and everywhere else in between, there’s plenty of pinot magic happening all around the country.

TASMANIA

Tasmania’s winemakers have a penchant for challenging the status quo – conventional wisdom told Tassie’s producers that wine wasn’t going to be their thing (the climate was too cold, and too unforgiving).
Countless false starts and failed experiments went into refining the way its makers grow and craft wine on this tough little island – and they certainly punch above their weight.

VICTORIA

Welcome to the classic rock of Aussie wine regions. You know all the songs, you love to sing along and you don’t care who hears you. It’s got the heartfelt ballads of the Mornington Peninsula, the sexy slow jams of the Yarra Valley and the funky beats of  Macedon, Ballarat and Gippsland. Victorian Pinot is on high rotation in our cellar because it’s a consistent crowd-pleaser.

Gippsland

Gippsland pinot is all punk rock; taking the classic style, experimenting and turning it on its head. High tones and lots of juicy whole bunches, it delivers a persistent flavour that’s unlike any other region. Pure anarchy. Read our regional profile here!

SOUTH AUSTRALIA

Say hello to the pop princess of the pinot world. Most of the time, South Australian pinots are fun and bright, but then you hit a pocket in SA (we’re looking at you, Basket Ranges) where the wines get a little down and dirty, a bit funky, and really push the barriers of winemaking norms (think Christina Aguilera when she dyed her hair and leathered up). A healthy balance of tradition and experimentation is at the heart of South Australia’s charm, which keeps the hits coming.

NEW SOUTH WALES

New South Wales pinot noir is a bit like the kid in high school who told everyone he was going to be a great singer and got laughed at. But look who’s laughing now? The dark horse of Australian pinot regions, the wines are intricate and flavoursome with great balance and energy. Watch this space, because pinot from NSW is about to be big.

CENTRAL OTAGO

Brrr. Did it just get a little colder? Central Otago sits way down towards the bottom of the world, enjoying bragging rights to some of the southern hemisphere’s most southerly vineyards. It was a wine region established on a collective mad vision and now produces powerful world-class pinots of mass seduction. Cue the sheepskin and fireplace.

WELLINGTON WINE COUNTRY

It’s tough when your neighbour (Martinborough) is a lead singer who’s always in the limelight. That’s ok, Wairarapa keeps making great pinot, regardless of who’s paying attention. And those in the know understand this pinot’s got all the right stuff. Soft, seductive, delicious… it’s a genuine quiet achiever.
