2022 Daydream Nation
Notes from Big Pete:
A red wine with sexy white wine aromatics, Shiraz pressed though the skins of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, blended together with portions of its white counterparts too. Chewy as that sounds, the result is a fridge-worthy red cosplaying as a spicy rosato. All in neutral French oak hogsheads, playing around with select parcels of the year for a snapshot of the 2022 vintage. Super bright and iridescent in the glass, strawberry and rhubarb on the nose, with vanilla, clove and exotic spices in the mouth. Looks good with a decent chill. Actually, don’t be shy to smash it straight from the ice bucket alongside the whites. That’s what we do.
