  1. Hay Shed Hill Cabernet Merlot 2012

    Hay Shed Hill Cabernet Merlot 2012

    Regular Price: $20.99

    Special Price: $18.89

    95 points James Halliday - "Ticks all the boxes from the first whiff through to the finish and aftertaste; shows the effortless power that a medium-bodied wine can provide when varieties, place and winemaking are all in sync. ... 
    Black fruit, dark mint chocolate, bay leaf and spice. Medium bodied, but feels densely packed and surprisingly rich with layers of silky smooth palate covering tannin, more to red and black fruits to taste, well seasoned with aromatic herbs and spice. This is seriously good wine for the money.  92 points Winefront.com.au"

    “Yes, it’s tremendous. Best since the 2005. .... Saltbush. Essence of Barossa Shiraz, without being overblown or overdone”.
    96 points Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
    ......wrapped up in weight and warmth. Distinctive, smooth and a good choice to cellar”.
    94 points Shaun Viljoen, Wine Jury... Sourced from Kalleske’s oldest, dry-grown vineyard, it shows a dynamic and vitality often missing from top-tier Barossa Valley wines”. Mike Bennie, Gourmet Traveller Wine
    Monumental in some ways, seamless in others. ....a long, supple, well-mannered and even-tempered finish. 
    Brute in a tuxedo. Quite exemplary. 96 points James Halliday

  3. Riposte The Dagger Pinot Noir 2014

    Riposte The Dagger Pinot Noir 2014

    Regular Price: $18.00

    Special Price: $17.50

    As low as: $16.00

    It just has such a perfect mix of sweet, sour, savoury and perfumed. It’s cherried and raspberried, a touch cranberried, has some twigs, smallgoods and spice but is essentially sweet, jellied, Turkish delight-ish.
    I tasted it yesterday and loved it so much I wondered whether I was just in a good mood; which seemed counter-intuitive at the time, because I didn’t feel like I was. So I popped the lid back on and came back a day later; there it is again, pretty as a picture. It’s a case buy. For whenever you feel in need of some cheer.

  1. The Lane Block 5 Shiraz 2013

    The Lane Block 5 Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $22.50

    This is another excellent example. It’s a savoury wine first and foremost, with smoke, twigs and generally reductive notes dominating the initial impression, but cherry-plum fruit comes bounding in, intent on give the party a kick along. Firm, drying tannin is here in abundance too;
    it won’t be a short-lived wine. 
    It will though please a lot of cool climate shiraz drinkers.  93+ Points Campbell Mattinson Winefront.com.au"

    Tim Smith Wines Mataro Grenache Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $26.50

    Special Price: $23.85

    As low as: $23.50

    Cop this one! Chocolate sauce, floral perfume, crack of black pepper, berry compote, almost a sea spray character. Medium to full bodied, chocolate and hazelnuts, glossy feel with just right acidity imbuing a kind of cranberried freshness, then a wide spread of gently sticky tannin. .....
    Gee, this is really very good. 94+ points Winefront.com.au
    .......chock-a-block with ripe black berries, chocolatey oak, cracked pepper and assorted roasted nut flavours. It's dense but bright and spicy; it lifts from the glass but then sinks deep into all corners of the mouth. 
    A standout. 95 points James Halliday Wine of the Week

  3. Turkey Flat Rose 2014

    Turkey Flat Rose 2014

    Regular Price: $21.50

    Special Price: $19.99

    As low as: $19.00

    A specifically grown and tailored blend. Small wonder it is one of the best selling roses on the market, its upgraded label print and branded clear glass bottle drawing the eye; it is supremely elegant, fresh and balanced, its red fruits sparkling like stars on a clear night - there is no static or distraction from its message. 
    95 points James Halliday Top 100 Wines

    2014 Rosé - You'll love it - This is consistently one of my favourite rosés. Such a light and delicate style of wine, ironically from the home of big, rich powerful reds. It’s a multi-varietal blend, with a little dolcetto adding a lovely fragrant lift and a keen, persistently fine acid through the middle palate to the long finish. Finishes perfectly clean and dry. You’ll love it. 93/100 Ray Jordan

  1. Tyrrells Hunter Valley Semillon 2014

    Tyrrells Hunter Valley Semillon 2014

    Regular Price: $20.00

    Special Price: $18.00

    As low as: $17.00

    What appeals is how easily drinkable, gentle, approachable yet varietal correct it is. Immediately it carries both the acid driven length of Tyrrell's Semillon, yet cast a little softer, with more green/yellow apple and lemonade fruit than some of the bone dry Vats (helped along by a perfect ripe vintage). Importantly, there is no sensation that this is a second or third wine, as it just feels naturally right - like a standard AC Chablis.
    High on drinkability, yet made without compromise, its a great ad for just how enjoyable Hunter Sem can be. It lacks the wild intensity of the more serious Tyrrell's Sems, but is unquestionably enjoyable - I finished off a glass or three at a local overpriced Japanese without even trying.
    Details: 11.5%, Screwcap, $20 ... Score: 17.5/20, 91/100
    Would I buy it? Yes. Absolutely." Andrew Graham OzWineReview

    Woodlands Margaret Cabernet 2012

    Regular Price: $43.00

    Special Price: $38.70

    As low as: $38.00

    ..... It has the full array of cassis, redcurrant, olive and earth expected of this invariably distinguished wine; just let the tannins relax for a year or two. 95 points James Halliday
    Lovely aromatics here – seaweed, violets, sweet rubbed spearmint with chocolate, blackberry and cedar/pencil oak in support. Medium to full bodied, ample red and black fruits, chocolate, nuts and tobacco, spiced oak – seductive style, though not bold or too showy – composed and impeccably balanced. Fine grained tannin draws the finish long. Classic Cabernet. 94 points Winefront.com.au"

  3. Woods Crampton  Mataro Rosé 2014

    Woods Crampton Mataro Rosé 2014

    Regular Price: $20.50

    Special Price: $18.50

    As low as: $18.00

    A pow pow powerful rosé we have here. ..... a little funk of old oak maturation – a nice olde worlde touch. A mouth-filler without being over-bearing. A chill white for the red wine fancier. Savoury lick of dried herbs and dried strawberry on the finish. You want texture and flavour in a rosé? This is your man (or woman). 
    94 points Winefront.com.au
    ......Bright puce; the bouquet is so fragrant it borders on perfume, the palate bone dry on the finish, juicy on the journey through; a savoury element helps the texture. 
    A lovely rose at any price. 367 dozen made. 95 points James Halliday
