Wine of the Week from Miss Moneypenny’s Broadbeach Sommelier Adam Brickles.

Every good restaurant – particularly those with an AGFG Chef Hat – has a dedicated Sommelier taking care of a carefully curated wine list to accompany the menu.

Who better to ask what’s trending in the vino world right now than these knowledgeable wine buffs? Welcome to our new ‘Wine of the Week’ series, where we will highlight particular wines on the radar of restaurants around the country.

Cutting edge style delivering atmosphere-driven dining is what you will find at Miss Moneypenny's on Surf Parade in Broadbeach. Architecturally designed by leading Australian firm Kelly Designs and taking inspiration from the original Noosa venue of the same name, expect modern Mediterranean coastal ambience with casual Gold Coast sophistication. 

Sommelier Adam Brickles brings a special and unique wine to our attention, which is making quite a buzz in the industry due to the family heritage and age of the winemaker – 16-year-old Oscar Holyman – who has graciously agreed to supply Miss M from his very sought after and limited supply 2021 Yes Miss Pinot Noir.

Wine of the Week from Miss Moneypenny’s Broadbeach Sommelier Adam Brickles.
Son of Tasmanian winemakers Lou and Joe Holyman who operate Stoney Rise Vineyard in the heart of the Tamar Valley, Oscar was being home-schooled during COVID lockdown by his mother, whom he called Miss Holyman – hence the name of the Pinot.

He convinced his Dad to buy a tonne of grapes so he could start his own winemaking business and he’s off to a great start with this Pinot Noir, according to Adam.

"This wine is a vibrant, fresh and coherent young Pinot made from destemmed fruit, which has spent four months in older oak, before being released a couple of weeks back,” Adam says. "Oscar has made winemaking look easy with this medium-bodied drop, with wild berry and spice notes, which is food-friendly and very drinkable.”
