    Episode 7: Sangiovese, Seltzers and Serious Juiciness ft. Jared is back from his trip

    Welcome to the Good Juice! A live wine tasting Where Tom and Jared invite you into a world of Australia's best micro wineries, explained in a laid-back nature where banter and knowledge about the magical grape juice collide.

    Jared is back from holidays so we just chatted amongst ourselves while we smashed some real good juice, including: Rollick 'Folly' 2019 Riesling, Minimum Wines 2019 San Selvaggio Sangiovese and Vinden Wines 2019 'Charmless Man' Alicante Bouschet. We spoke about all things sustainability (as always), in depth about our new friends Minimum Wines and their ethos, the south coast of NSW, how Sangiovese isn't as simple as it seems, the Seltzer craze and other juicy things! It was nice just chill with Hukky and chat shit; Conor turned up for a random cameo also. All the wines were delicious and some more than others, but we hope you enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed ear assaulting you guys!

    Episode 6: Syrah, Semillon and Stupidly Good Chardonnay ft. Conor Teevan as my Co host and David Bosanquet from The Throsby

    Welcome to the Good Juice! A live wine tasting Where Tom and Jared invite you into a world of Australia's best micro wineries, explained in a laid-back nature where banter and knowledge about the magical grape juice collide. 



    In this episode we chat with the British legend, David Bosanquet, as well as young Conor Teevan (Births and Deaths) as my mystery guest! We discuss microclimates, acid and why it's important, how good oaked Chardonnay can be, winemaking techniques, climate change, farmers and all the banter in between while we knock back:  2019 Vinden Wines Semillon, 2018 Sigurd 'Hoyde' Chardonnay and Sigurd 2018 Syrah (plus a cheeky mystery beverage). These wines were a pleasure to drink, we were blown away by a couple of them. Also, we'd like to give our deepest condolences to the Van Halen family, you'll be sorely missed Eddie! You might find a couple of puns we've thrown in there. As always we had a fantastic time, and David's time and knowledge is appreciated. You'll definitely learn something in this one. Tune in to find out how froth worthy the juice was!

    Welcome to the Good Juice! A live wine tasting Where Tom and Jared invite you into a world of Australia's best micro wineries, explained in a laid-back nature where banter and knowledge about the magical grape juice collide. In this episode we chat with the French Wizard of Winecraft and Wizardry and Manager of Steamer Bar and Grill as we discuss France, how much Romain loves Sav Blanc, climate change, insane Pinot and a bit of juice, as we taste: Wild and Wilder 2019 Courtesan Riesling, Hills Collide 2019 Dry Rose and Scanlon Wines 2019 Pinot Noir. All of these wines were glugable AF, but super complex and Romain absolutely French frothed them.

    Episode 3: Camwell, Rollick and Cracking Juice Ft. Kendra White from Camwell Wines and Jack Weedon from Rollick Wines

    Welcome to the Good Juice! A live wine tasting Where Tom and Jared invite you into a world of Australia's best micro wineries, explained in a laid-back nature where banter and knowledge about the magical grape juice collide.
    In this very special episode we chat with Kendra and Jack about all things wine, sustainability, micro batch wine making, the poor internet connection in NSW, how Jack missed out on the Rosé, Jared and Tom's love for Negronis and plenty of sauce along the way! We feature Camwell Wines 2020 Skin Contact 'Teli' Vionger and 2019 Mourvedre Rosé, as well as the 2020 Rollick Wines 'Bootfull' Grenache. We had an absolute blast chatting to these guys, and we can't thank them enough for their time! Absolutely stoked we could have some brilliant wine makers on the show. All of the juice in this episode was pretty next level; tune in to find out what level? 

    ALSO THE AUDIO SHIFTS TO A FAIRLY QUIET FREQUENCY AT AROUND 30 MINUTES. I COULDN'T AVOID THIS UNFORTUNATELY. SO PLEASE TURN IT UP :) SORRY JACK, DON'T GIVE UP LISTENERS, KEEP ON LISTENING (be like Dory but instead of swimming, listening) CAUSE THAT GRENACHE IS EPIC.
