  1. Head Wines the Contrarian Shiraz 2015

    Head Wines the Contrarian Shiraz 2015

    Regular Price: $34.99

    Special Price: $33.50

    As low as: $32.00

    Dark red almost black in colour.  Aromas of rosemary, thyme, bay leaf, insense, blue fruits, cola and tar.  Medium to full bodied, sweet fruited with mulberry, aniseed, bitter chocolate bullets and sweet tannins. Strikingly individual style of old Eden Valley clone Shiraz. Drink now or up to 15 years. 14.0% Alcohol.

    Colour is deep red to black. The nose shows intense aromas of rosemary, sage, menthol, fennel, cured meats, blueberry and blackcurrant. The palate shape is typical of Eden Valley being a little more linear with elegant blue fruits - less flesh than the Barossan twins! Sweet, moreish, dense tannins completely saturate the mouth, resulting in incredible length of fruit and flavour. Drink with slow cooked Lamb - rosemary not essential. Unfined & Unfiltered. Alc 13.8%. Drink 2014-2034. Decant for 1 hour minimum.

  2. Mt Horrocks Watervale Riesling 2016

    Mt Horrocks Watervale Riesling 2016

    Regular Price: $34.00

    Special Price: $32.99

    As low as: $30.00

    "This is a stunning riesling. So dry, so slatey, so well fruited, so charming and so long. It’s Clare to its back teeth. Lemon-lime, florals, spice and that characteristic bath salts character.
    The purity and the sheer deliciousness of the citrus flavours on offer here deserve a mention in the dictionary beside the word: gorgeous."

  3. Ravensworth Charlie Foxtrot Gamay Noir 2016

    Ravensworth Charlie Foxtrot Gamay Noir 2016

    Regular Price: $38.00

    Special Price: $36.50

    As low as: $35.00

    This is an edgy gamay right out of the playbook of lo-fi winemakers of Beaujolais, albeit with the cool refrain of Canberra District here. The things to note: wildly aromatic in rose petal, watermelon, pickled cherry, spice, faint balsamic lift, while the palate is knife edge, crunchy as all get out, set on dry cranberry-like tannins, almost skeletal, bristling with the faint sparkle of a very young wine. It’s insanely refreshing, but wild as. I
    t’s an amaro hit and crisp. Purist fans of cru Beaujolais might balk, but those seeking an interpretation and thirst-slaking, fantastic, delicious expression should apply here." Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au

  1. Woods Crampton Old John Shiraz Bonvedro 2015

    Woods Crampton Old John Shiraz Bonvedro 2015

    Regular Price: $25.50

    Special Price: $23.50

    As low as: $22.00

    It’s good Barossa Shiraz with a little something extra for the weekend. Dark fruit, lavender, liquorice, spice and rosemary. Medium bodied, supple and almost juicy, but a bit brooding too, layered with spice and perfumed with sweet herbs. Tannin is well tuned and sits neatly inside the wine with a graphite feel, and the finish is long and shapely with something of a chicory aftertaste.
    It’s complex, interesting, and insanely good value.

  2. Adelina Watervale Riesling 2016

    Adelina Watervale Riesling 2016

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $24.00

    As low as: $22.00

    The mature Gulley View vineyard, on red loamy clay over limestone, historically supplied Leo Buring, maker of countless outstanding Rieslings in the past. The fruit is hand picked, whole-bunch pressed, fermented with a mix of indigenous and inoculated yeast and raised in stainless tanks. Crammed with mouth filling texture, stone fruit and apple notes and waterfall fresh acidity, this wine is not at all typically Clare in style; Col halts the ferment with around 7-8g/l residual sugar to balance the site's searing acidity. Just north of 200 cases of the scintillating 2016; what are you waiting for, people? Breakfast in bed?

  3. Innocent Bystander Syrah 2015

    Innocent Bystander Syrah 2015

    Regular Price: $24.50

    Special Price: $23.50

    As low as: $21.99

    Trophy - Champion Wine of Show
    Trophy - Best Red Wine of Show
    Trophy – Best Shiraz of Show - Yarra Valley Wine Show 2016


      Innocent Bystander has gained a strong following with their syrah and the 2015 vintage is looking like their best made to date. Lifted aromas of white pepper and mulberry lead into an elegant, mid-weight palate, displaying pure, red berry fruit and supple smooth tannins. Beautifully balanced with spicy complexity, this is an exciting expression of Yarra Valley syrah.


    "Steve Flamsteed makes his wines with 'pinot hands', so what you get is an epically scented syrah with a buoyant palate unlike any traditional Aussie syrah/shiraz". Matthew Jukes - wine writer

  1. The Other Wine Co Grenache 2016

    The Other Wine Co Grenache 2016

    Regular Price: $26.99

    Special Price: $25.00

    As low as: $24.00

    "Some wines just hit the nail square on.


    This is one such wine. It’s both fresh and textural, lively and substantial enough. You taste it and think: yes. It flows where it needs to, gathers where it must, persists when it’s all on the line. There’s quite a deal of fine-grained tannin and yet its dryness never interrupts the argument in favour of the wine’s quality, or its drinkability. It gives light- to medium-bodied red wine a good name."

  2. Hoddles Creek Estate Pinot Gris 2016

    Hoddles Creek Estate Pinot Gris 2016

    Regular Price: $22.00

    Special Price: $20.99

    As low as: $20.50

    "I’m putting it out there: this could be the best Pinot Gris in Australia.
    It’s rose gold in colour and that’s just the start of the fun. Subtle floral notes, nashi pear, whisper of musk, but the ‘fruitiness’ is dialled back and the ‘vinous’ parts are tuned up. Powdery tannin, and almost savoury to taste, with the cool acidity and pear, along with a peach tea-like refreshment. Perfect from front to back, complex and packed with personality. Hats off. Flat out delicious. This is how you make Pinot Gris."

    Adelina Polish Hill River Riesling 2016

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $24.00

    As low as: $22.00

    Subtle white flower/vanilla bean perfume, fennel, stones, and mixed citrus (including tangerine) leads you in to a wine of immediate appeal and character. It’s lean and kind of bony, but delivers a lovely crunch of citrus, zinging but fine acidity, and a fine talc-like texture, which lends a lovely grip to the wine. Yum. Will cellar surely, I’d imagine."
