Jilly Wine Co. Cactus 2022
Jared Dixon kinda looks like Pablo Escobar, and funnily enough his wines are also very addictive, but he gives off “solid mate” vibes, as opposed to “drug kingpin” ones. He is based up in Clunes, NSW and has brought out a whole swathe of world class wines, utilising absolute gems of untouched vineyards.
Touriga, malbec and shiraz from a tiny vineyard named Cactus makes for what Jared describes as 'supercharged Beaujolais'. Soft, plush cherries and raspberry over top of a salty lick of tannin. VIVA
