One of the stars of the 2019 Awards, this carefully curated, immaculately presented list shows what a clever sommelier can achieve in a small restaurant. The focus is on wines that suit the restaurant’s light, bright, produced-based dishes. Attention is paid to the winemakers and each is named alongside their wine. The cutting edge, organic and biodynamic producers are targeted. There’s a focus on small producers; diversity in the white wines on offer, as well as Jura blanc and sous voile (aged with flor yeast) whites; gamay and lightly framed reds from Beaujolais and around the world. Established superstars such as JJ Prum, Mt Pleasant ‘Elizabeth’, TarraWarra, Giaconda are a reference point and provide balance. A great list.
