  1. Woods Crampton Barossa Shiraz 2013

    Woods Crampton Barossa Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $19.50

    Special Price: $19.00

    As low as: $18.50

    The 2012 vintage was very good, though I suspect I like the 2013 just a little bit more.
    An almost pretty expression of Barossa Shiraz we have here. Violet, blue fruits, brown spices and sweet mint – maybe crushed fennel – almost licorice, with a touch of whole bunchy spice and stalky perfume – the oak dialed right back. Medium bodied, nutty, gentle chew of round tannin, almost silky feeling, with even unforced acidity and a playful tug of tannin on the finish to shape it up. We have a live one here, and unusually for a $20 Shiraz it deserves, nay demands, to be served in a big Shiraz glass.

  2. Thousand Candles Yarra Valley 2013

    Thousand Candles Yarra Valley 2013

    Regular Price: $110.00

    Special Price: $105.00

    It evolves and morphs in a gripping odyssey, leaping out of the glass with violets, exotic spice, black fruits and fresh liquorice straps, scaffolded around a mouth-embracing structure of wonderfully fine tannins.
    If you must know, the best of 100% whole bunch cool climate shiraz (55%) meets 50% whole bunch pinot noir (40%) and a dash of sauvignon blanc (5%).

  3. Massena Moonlight Run 2012

    Massena Moonlight Run 2012

    Regular Price: $27.99

    Special Price: $26.50

    As low as: $25.00

    57% Grenache, 31% Mataro, 7% Shiraz, 5% Cinsaut and I’m thinking about moons and spoons, in June. Very purple. Blackcurrant jubes, flowers, earth and iron, brown sauce and kind of Indian sweet spiciness. Medium bodied, silky with fine tannin, juicy slurpy fun, yet still a serious wine. Has length and a spicy finish with gentle tannin drawing it out. In a nutshell: rich, sweet and smooth, but balanced.  93 points Winefront.com.au

  1. Chateau Pegau Cotes du Rhone Cuvee Maclura 2012

    Chateau Pegau Cotes du Rhone Cuvee Maclura 2012

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $24.50

    As low as: $22.99

    60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault.  Raspberry, licorice, dark cherry, peanuts and a stony earthy character. Medium bodied, minerally, but lush and silky, fresh clear acidity, so even and balanced that you want to drink another glass straight away. Suggest not cellaring it for any length of time. Live in the now, here.  92 points Winefront.com.au

  2. Turkey Flat Shiraz 2012

    Turkey Flat Shiraz 2012

    Regular Price: $50.00

    Special Price: $48.50

    As low as: $45.00

    It’s ripe and licoricey but it has nutty, herbal notes too and quite a deal of them. Smoky oak plays a role, but it’s easy to miss. It’s clean, juicy and well-fruited, but it has a sinewy aspect. It’s medium-bodied with fine-grained, fruit-filled tannin. It benefits from being given time to breathe in the glass.
    In all, it’s a top Turkey Flat release. 94 points Winefront.com.au

  3. Riposte The Sabre Pinot Noir 2012

    Riposte The Sabre Pinot Noir 2012

    Regular Price: $28.50

    Special Price: $27.00

    As low as: $26.00
    Out of stock

    Made in small batches, all cold-soaked and hand-plunged in open fermenters; matured for 10 months in French barriques (25% new), the grapes coming from the Lenswood and Piccadilly Valley districts.
    Vivid, clear crimson-purple colour heralds a pinot of grace and purity, red and black cherry enthroned on a carpet of spice, gossamer tannins and quality oak. Small wonder it has won three gold medals and two trophies.; Rating: 97 points. Points James Halliday

  1. Head Wines the Contrarian Shiraz 2013

    Head Wines the Contrarian Shiraz 2013

    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.
    Aromatic herbs like thyme and lavender – lovely perfume – iron, black and blue fruit. Medium bodied, not bunchy, but shows the family traits of firmness, minerality and a little austerity, though the fruit is there. And excellent. Dry powdery finish sprinkled with herbs. Poise and sophistication and so good to drink.
    If you were to buy only one of the Head Shiraz wines, this would be my recommendation. 95 points Winefront.com.au

  2. De Bortoli Yarra Estate Grown Shiraz 2012

    De Bortoli Yarra Estate Grown Shiraz 2012

    Regular Price: $30.00

    Special Price: $27.50

    As low as: $26.00

    This has lots of tannin. It’s 40% whole bunches and it’s all meat and spice, twigs and smoky oak. It’s going to divide opinion again but in an entirely positive way. Nuts, bitter shells and all. Generous velvetiness to the mid palate but it gets grainy, herbal, tannic and all manner of things through the finish. Bitterness has been embraced. Great complexity. Peppery after taste. Texture is a key feature.94+ points Winefront.com.au

    Shottesbrooke Single Vineyard Blewitt Springs Shiraz 2012

    Regular Price: $40.00

    Special Price: $34.99

    As low as: $33.00

    Vivid crimson-purple; the expressive bouquet tells of the concentrated blackberry fruit of the medium to full-bodied palate, with layered foresty black fruits, bitter chocolate and quality oak; has prodigious length and aftertaste. 325 dozen made. 97 points James Halliday
