CellarHand Newsletter October 2017

October’s rocking already, with a slew of bright new things going on. On the events front, there’s more detail added to the Riesling Downunder program, and Austria is inviting one and all to a celebration of its National Day with a grand tasting in Melbourne.
Some headline releases, too, this month. Those lovely Egans of Wantirna Estate bring us their awesome foursome, plus the brand-new RP Pinot Noir by Farr rounds out what’s now a holy trinity at the top of the Farr family tree. Those champions of multiviticulturism, the Chalmers family, are hogging the headlines with the brand-new Dott. wines, a makeover for Montevecchio and a springtime magnum bottling of their Rosato. The Langworthys of Nocturne are also in on the pink mag movement, and also bring us their 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon. The long-awaited release of Stephen Pannell‘s 2016 Tempranillo Touriga blend has come at last, while we’re also tipping his unconventional Amuse blend will bring a smile to your dial.
A little quieter on the foreign front, but you can find out why England’s Hattingley Valley is feeling on top of the world, which 2015 dry German Rieslings need be a constant presence in your fridge, and why Gerhard Pittnauer has got the Blau for now.
Also for the spring season, we’ve put together a couple of compilations to suit the mood, with an array of sparkling wines and rosés for any budget and occasion.
