Our Review

Vanguardist Wines
maker, Michael John Corbett, draws on established sources across South Australia to craft a delicious swag of Mediterranean-inspired wines of textural intrigue. A card of neutral wood, ambient ferments and plenty of whole-bunch is dealt with a deft hand. The results, often compelling. Corbett’s opus is grenache, specifically Blewitt Springs grenache, hewn of the region’s low-yielding elevated old vineyards. His ripeness barometer challenges notions of what is optimal, flirting with marginal levels of alcohol on the lower side. Quantities are small, selling out fast. Exports to France, Hong Kong and NZ. -NED GOODWIN MW
