STANDISH THE RELIC SHIRAZ 2019
BAROSSA VALLEY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA
BEAST LAYERED DARK
CLASSIC / 750ML
The Relic is sourced from the Hongell Family vineyard planted in 1912. The shiraz heavy blend has a hint of Viognier (7%) to add a bit of lippy to this monolithic wine. The wine is aged in open-top fermenters and then basket pressed to oak where it sits for 30 months. Pure Barossa. Dark fruits, bread pudding and incredible structure.

RILEY HARRISON CABERNET FRANC 2020
MCLAREN VALE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA
PEPPERS BRIGHT SPRING
LEFT OF CENTRE / 750ML
Beach wine - light, bright, chillable and easy going. Bright tamarillo, subtle green pepper and a whole lot of sunshine.
Cabernet Franc from a vineyard conveniently located quite close to the Victory Hotel. These vines are cooled by the sea breeze & fuelled by the summer sunshine. 10% carbonic maceration and 90% straight up and down. Bright red fruits, fresh-cut chilli and the kiss of a man splitting firewood. This is spring luncheon wine if ever it did exist.
Harrison Wines defy convention - the convention and constraint of a nine-five job led Riley Harrison to seek a creative outlet, and in 2015, with a humble tonne of Grenache, this vision became a bottled reality.
In pursuit of perfume, texture, and drinkability, Riley crossed regional boundaries to secure small parcels of fruit from vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley.
With an emphasis firmly on fruit quality and varietal expression, Riley’s winemaking style weaves between the lines of conventional and minimal-intervention.
“Minimal intervention winemaking can be divisive and can focus too much on the minimalist process, rather than the outcome of the final wine. Strangely, doing less requires far greater attention to detail in the winery. It's the complex interaction of science, creativity and environment in a bid to generate flavour that I find intoxicating"
The resulting creatively charged wines are the outlet Riley was searching for. Harrison Wines has been an exploratory journey into the world of aromatic excitement and textural pleasure.
He won’t be returning to the nine-five anytime soon.
UNICO ZELO HARVEST BLANC DE BLANC FIZZ 2020
ADELAIDE HILLS, SOUTH AUSTRALIA
BRIGHT TIGHT QUENCH
CLASSIC / COLLABORATION / 750ML
A classic clean crisp Australian Fizz. 100% Chardonnay.
From the Producer: A refreshingly dry style of sparkling wine that shows all the generosity and elegance that Chardonnay is known for, whilst giving you a clean and cut finish. The harvest range aim to change the hardships for growers in our region by creating Australia’s only wine production co-op. Any grower in our sub-region (5km radius around our winery) can be a part of the Harvest Grower's Co-Op. Instead of selling their grapes for bottom-dollar, they donate them to the Harvest label, and we donate in-kind - winemaking, branding, bottling, distribution, sales and marketing. Then we deliver back 50% of the profit. The only bills that are split are the packaging costs - but only at the point of payment: so no cashflow detriment.
