This month we’re celebrating the wines of the Adelaide Hill’s with a special 4-pack of lo-fi wines from four of the Hills best producers.

Menu 1 – Giovanni Armani Giorgio 2022 Bianco Superioré 2021
It’s not just the labelling that’s initially confusing with this intriguing blend of vermentino, malvasia and trebbiano (“Imbottigliato dai Giovanni Armani Giorgio” in the Adelaide Hills), it’s the complexity of flavours too. With a tropical fruit nose, it’s cloudy, skinsy, slightly funky and almost salty with soft but serious tannins – a great match for the complex Mamak crab.
Menu 2 – Fiasco Light Red 2021
Serve this bright burgundy-coloured blend of pinot noir and chardonnay lightly chilled and use it to wash down the crisp lamb (or octopus) with prickly ash. There’s a faint greenness on the nose along with a touch of spice and hint of smoke, then a dry soft finish with a touch of ripe red berries.
Menu 3 – Hills & Back Riesling 2021
The citrusy zing on nose and palate make this a great match for the richness of both the salmon and it’s olive and mustard topping. There’s a nice touch of bitterness on the finish that cleans everything up nicely too.
Menu 4 – Gentle Folk Rainbow Juice 2022
This lovely rosé is an intriguing blend of red and white, including pinot gris and noir, merlot, muscat blanco, gamay, riesling and gewürz. It has a gorgeous nose (due largely to the gewürz, I’d say), great texture from the skin contact and some good acidity (thanks riesling). A perfect foil for the complex array of flavours in our final menu.
