  1. Lake Breeze Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Lake Breeze Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Regular Price: $24.50

    Special Price: $22.99

    As low as: $22.00

    "Deep, brooding, choc-raspberry, dark chocolate oak, gum leaf and pepper scented wine. Such a smooth ride to taste, inky in its concentration but never overwhelming the palate. Very fine tannins conspire with herb-kissed dark fruits, lifted on fresh acidity and finishing soft and slightly smudged (in the best possible way). Hedonistic, without staining the palate beyond repeat drinking. Very well done." Rated : 92 Points Winefront.com.au
     "Amazing value for money! Superb, featuring clean, pure, ripe Cabernet aromas and a palate which is deep and concentrated with a long, long carry and the ability to mature and reward cellaring ideal ripeness and no obvious eucalyptus/mint." 95 points Gourmet Traveller Wine

    Cirillo Estate the Vincent Grenache 2016

    Regular Price: $19.99

    Special Price: $18.99

    As low as: $18.50

    96 Points. A concentrated and deeply flavoursome Grenache from the sandy Vine Vale soils, this has attractive spicy red and purple berry fruits with some gently stony, almost flinty edges and hints of wild roasting herbs. The palate's beautifully fresh and lithe, really nicely honed in terms of tannin, and vibrant and succulent. Red-plum and dark-cherry flavours snap fresh through the finish.
    Superb wine. Drink now and for 10+ years."- Nick Stock, jamesuckling.com. 96 points

  3. Clonakilla O'Riada Shiraz 2015

    Clonakilla O'Riada Shiraz 2015

    Regular Price: $40.00

    Special Price: $38.99

    As low as: $37.00

    It takes time to open up but once it has it’s a pearl. It’s full of black pepper and five spice character and, indeed, it’s smoky and reductive and a touch stinky. Be warned. It’s that style of wine. But it combines elegance and power, juicy fruit and a taut run of tannin, and in the end it sings long and harmonious. Did I mention nuts? And peppers? And herbs? It’s beautiful now, and it’s going to mature deliciously."
    Rated : 95 Points Winefront.com.au


    A strikingly fragrant and perfumed effort from Clonakilla, this wine captures you instantaneously. It is superbly constructed, aromatically fragrant, perfumed and darkly fruited; on the palate spice, superfine tannins and then the finish that just lingers and expands.

    Shaw and Smith Pinot Noir 2015

    Regular Price: $49.00

    Special Price: $46.50

    As low as: $46.00

    96 Points Nick Stock - A lighter, more pure and elegant expression from Shaw + Smith in 2015, this has bright cherry compote and fresh cherry, spiced strawberries, pastry-like and biscuity savory notes, gently meaty and peppery too, this has plenty of complexity and yet shows the purity of fruit very clearly, nicely delivered. Blue fruits as well as rose-like perfume, very subtle oak here. The palate has supple and fleshy fruit, tannins are fine and even, really sweet spices that are worked into the heart of the fruit, red cherry stone finish, very even, long and fired along by crystaline, vibrant acidity. This is their best pinot to date. Drink now and for 6+ years.James Suckling.com, Top 100 Wines of Australia, January 2017 96 points Nick Stock
    2015 is a new level for this wine due to high altitude grape sourcing, and a high percentage of whole bunches in the ferment. Root vegetable aromas among the cherry notes, which the wine has the concentration and power to accommodateOutstanding! 97 points Highest Rating Wine in Gourmet Traveller Wine

    Shaw and Smith Shiraz 2014

    Regular Price: $48.00

    Special Price: $46.50

    As low as: $45.00

     ..... partial whole bunch and remainder whole berry open-fermented, matured in French oak (33% new) for 14 months. 
    A super-fragrant red cherry bouquet, with notes of mulberry, licorice and plum joining the vibrant red fruits of the palate, backed by firm, precisely framed tannins. 96 points James Halliday


    This is a superb, dramatic shiraz which is succulent and ethereal - not as blockbuster, but powerful and very intense. Floral nuances add to acomplex bouquet, and the sweet fruit is balanced by the soft tannins,
    giving it a beguiling texture. 96 points Gourmet Traveller Wine

    Regular Price: $105.00

    Special Price: $99.99

    As low as: $96.00

    I’m taken. Gorgeous, silky texture, a symphony of character in fragrance, game meats, herbs, red berries, clove, sweet spice. The palate is incredible – supple, pliant, long, satiny yet etched with the finest tat-work of lacy tannin. It’s savoury, fruit driven, pure-feeling but lifted on fine spicy oak and glossy acidity. In essence, it drinks utterly superbly. It’s next level. It’s a new classic for Clonakilla. Glory be. Rated : 97 Points Winefront.com.au


    Wine Companion tasting note. 


    James Halliday - Published on 03 Nov 2016


    Tim Kirk's Socratean dissatisfaction has led to changes in the vineyard and winery alike. One particular change is the increase in the percentage of whole bunches, resulting in even greater perfume and more texture, yet leaving the mouth fresh. Spices are embroidered on the red fruits with unequalled attention to detail.

  1. Bondar Wines Rayner Vineyard Grenache 2016

    Bondar Wines Rayner Vineyard Grenache 2016

    Regular Price: $35.00

    Special Price: $33.99

    “Grown on a tiny block of (43 year old) McLaren Vale grenache. Hand picked/selected from the lowest yielding vines. 75% spent 35 days on skins. The remainder spent nine days on skins and was fermented cool. 120 dozen made. It’s a marvellous grenache. It has a bit of beef, a bit of flesh, and yet it promotes dryness, spice and structure ahead of fruit. It’s not thick or massively intense but it’s convincing and indeed powerful, by its own design. Licorice, graphite, flings of dried herbs and bushes, a campfire smokiness. It’s textural, it’s aromatic, it’s a treat. The linger of tannin and flavour here is quite superb. Your best glassware, please.”

    Wicks Estate Adelaide Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    Regular Price: $21.50

    Special Price: $20.00

    As low as: $19.00

    There’s no need to decant this: immediately on opening it goes straight into the zone. This is a beautiful drinking cabernet, for now or for later, bursting with blackcurrant and bay leaf flavours/aromas and full of freshness and life. It’s unmistakably cabernet and yet it’s juicy, balanced, and highly drinkable even as a young wine. Hints of chocolate and fresh garden herbs add to the show. The price is in the drinker’s favour."

  3. Kalleske Wines the Zeitgeist Shiraz 2016

    Kalleske Wines the Zeitgeist Shiraz 2016

    Regular Price: $27.99

    Special Price: $24.99

    Zeitgeist Shiraz is vivid dark indigo-purple in colour. Stunning perfume is the immediate greeting as the powerful aromas emanate from the glass. It's alive, bursting with uplifting fresh violets, blueberry, blackberry and aniseed. There is bright, pure expressive fruit. Well structured, with natural tannins providing a muscular framework the wine is full in body, flavour and mouthfeel. Notably complex for the age, Zeitgeist is enjoyable now with its primal characters but is powered to cellar well for many years to come.
    "Sloshy, soupy-textured wine of dark berry fruitiness, gentle sweetness, whiff of herbs and earths. Potent perfume of berry compote, slick ripe berry fruit to taste, clean, juicy finish lingers with sour-sweet feel. It’s gluggable, slurpy stuff that beckons the drinker back in with urgency. Yum." Rated : 90 Points Winefront.com.au
