Rotburger (Zweigelt) & Gruner Veltliner, Kamptal, Austria | Freakum Dress as a zingy, herbaceous & slightly cloudy rosé! Martin and Anna Arndorfer are a winemaking power couple based in Kamptal, Austria. Both of them come from winemaking families, which comes across in the obvious craftsmanship in their wines – always joyful, vibrant, balanced and delicious the next day. But the Arndorfers love a cheeky wink of subversion, a little razzle dazzle, if you will – so the Zweigelt grapes undergo a short skin maceration before being co-fermented with Gruner Veltliner skins for two weeks, followed by 6 months in tank and barrel and no fining or filtration. Slightly cloudy but 100% funky fresh fun – raspberry lemonade, rosemary garnish, fresh sage, a zesty, citrus-driven acid and a whisper of potpourri tannins. A slightly off-kilter rosé for kicking around in your Betsey Johnson best!

Burgenland, Austria | Is it orange? Is it white? A drinkable choose you own adventure book from young, Burgenland winemaker Andreas Ziniel. Perfect for Riesling and Gruner Veltliner lovers, Gelber Muskateller/Muskat provides a delightfully sassy alternative that is alarmingly delicious, addictive & positively freaky. Weingut Ziniel is a free spirited winery at the lowest point in Austria, where they say they are, “completely at peace in the centre of the universe”. Be where you are, man! Sandy-loam with calcareous subsoils bring crisp minerality to this plentiful table. Fermented and matured before blending with an older vintage to add depth & complexity - a mini solera of sorts! Stubborn & unmistakable, a true splurge of musky florals, nutmeg loaf & a flavour bomb that throws you up in the air like a firework. Pour alongside snuggly candle lit evenings watching Black Mirror: Bandersnatch & eating pie of any kind.

Zweigelt & St. Laurent, Burgenland, Austria | Rét is one of those wines that we come back to time and time again, like a favourite book or movie that is ALWAYS as good as you remember. It is so utterly crushable that you will be tempted to dump the whole bottle into a fountain soda cup & honestly why shouldn’t you? At first it’s all cran-cherry fruit & cola spritz. But upon further inspection, you’ll find it has an equally strong serious streak, like when you find out your wildest, party-est friend secretly as a degree in, like, quantum physics. Earthy, smoky & black peppery, Rét is like the smell of the month of October exploded into a wine. Crackling dried leaves & outdoor firepit, clear & crisp & romantic. Grapes are hand-harvested, fermented on the skins for about 10 days without temperature control, then pressed & aged in acacia barrels on gross lees for 14 months. Pairs perfectly with: classic Burberry plaid, an impromptu game of softball that becomes weirdly high-stakes, cool breezes & hand-holding, going for a run with a dog.
