  1. Linnaea Wines ''Trifulau' Barolo 2010

    Linnaea Wines ''Trifulau' Barolo 2010

    Regular Price: $64.99

    Special Price: $54.99

    I appreciate the time spent getting to know this wine.  It's reserved but ever-so intriguing. Ethereal. Over the four days I had it open it unveiled more sour plum, red liquorice and dark tarry characters with a persistent juicy acidity that remained throughout.  Brooding and bright.  Dark and shiny.  Fascinating contrasts. A grown-up style of wine deserving of a few hours in the decanter, a big plate of char-grilled lamb cutlets and a not-quite-long-enough night of engrossing conversation." Wine Punter.com.au


    .... Throws a wondrous perfume of liquorice root, chocolate and dark cherries with rose oil wafting above, bottom firmly ensconced on the sweet folds of an old Chesterfield lounge. And gloriously traditional it is too - firm and sure in the mouth with a spread of fine grained tannin allied to just the right amount of dark fruit, tea and spice.  Has a vivacious yet fleshy finish of good length with a ring of clear acidity. Significantly good value, considering. 94+ points Gary Walsh Winefront.com.au"

  2. Castelli Estate Pemberton Chardonnay 2014

    Castelli Estate Pemberton Chardonnay 2014

    Regular Price: $27.99

    Special Price: $25.19

    Wine Companion tasting note. Rating: 95 points
    Drink By: 2024 Price:$32.00 Alcohol: 13.3% James Halliday - Published on 27 Jul 2015
    Bright straw-green, vibrant, but a little deeper than most when 11 months old; barrel ferment inputs are immediately obvious, providing aroma/flavour complexity, structure and texture likewise. Struck match, grapefruit zest and toasty oak have come together with unexpected poise, bordering on outright finesse. Quite a journey.

  3. Woods Crampton Three Vineyards Eden Valley Shiraz 2013

    Woods Crampton Three Vineyards Eden Valley Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $26.99

    Special Price: $25.50

    As low as: $24.00

    Black fruit, sage and herb garden, mocha, brown spices – dark and perfumed. Medium bodied, fleshy and ripe, spice and dark chocolate with fine grained pliant tannin a constant theme through the wine – such good and satisfying texture. Sweet dark fruit, spice and a very long finish, punctuated with a dried herb perfume. Lovely effortless Shiraz. Classic Eden Valley. 94 points Gary Walsh Winefront.com.au
    ....This is such good fruit sourcing/winemaking and marketing, the last the least important; it is a super-elegant wine with an intense peacock's tail display of red, purple and black fruits, and a burst of spice/pepper usually found in super-cool regions. It's the cat's pyjamas. 96 points James Halliday

  1. Ravensworth Canberra Shiraz Viognier 2014

    Ravensworth Canberra Shiraz Viognier 2014

    Regular Price: $34.00

    Special Price: $32.50

    As low as: $31.00

    There’s no mistaking it as anything other than a Shiraz Viognier but if you have any time for the blend in cool climates then I urge you not to write it off. Incorporation of whole bunches and 5% Viognier.
    It’s a sinewy, guttural expression here. The season may have given some washiness to flavour, but the tannins crawl through the wine with earthy, elemental grunt. It smells of wild berries on briar, game meat, crushed rocks. Flavours and textue feel savoury, dark, tinged with herbs, sappy. There’s a touch of evenness missing in the wine, but it’s almost better for it with that powdery tannin chew. 
    To savour. " 94 points Winefront.com.au

    Sidewood Estate Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $22.50

    Special Price: $20.25

    As low as: $19.99

    James Halliday - Published on 27 Jul 2015


    Multiple clones from the estate Oakbank Vineyard; co-fermented with 25% whole bunches, finished in French barriques (30% new) and 12 months maturation. Gold medals Melbourne and Adelaide Wine Shows '14.
    Deeply coloured; a great example of the synergy between the Adelaide Hills and shiraz, producing an unequivocally cool-grown style, yet with a thoroughly engaging richness to its strongly spiced black fruits and ripe tannins. 96 points

    Crabtree Watervale Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $25.99

    Special Price: $23.39

    As low as: $22.99

    "2013 reds from Crabtree are impressive. Plenty of personality here. Tannin too. Meaty, minty wine with blackberry flavour aplenty. Black pepper and woodsmoke/cedar-like notes make a play to. But essentially it feels age worthy, well ripened and polished, with quality at all steps along the line. Great value." 95 points Winefront.com.au
    Wine Companion tasting note. Rating: 96 points Drink By: 2032 Price:$28.00 Date Tasted: 01 Dec 2014 Alcohol: 14% CM - Published on 27 Jul 2015 Direct from the notebook: Distinctive. Quality from start to finish. Long life ahead. Raw meat, black cherry and blackberry, various dried peppers and smoke-like nuances. Absolute quality. Firm, raking tannin. No shortage of personality. 96 points James Halliday Wine Companion

    Wine Companion tasting note. Rating: 97 points Drink By: 2035 Price: $44.00 Date Tasted: 26 Aug 2014 Alcohol: 14% James Halliday - Published on 27 Jul 2015




    Vivid crimson; the fragrant array of black cherry, blackberry, spice and cracked pepper aromas feed into the beautifully textured and proportioned palate, where silky tannins provide perfect support and mouthfeel. A top notch successor to the acclaimed '12.

  2. By Farr Farrside Pinot Noir 2013

    By Farr Farrside Pinot Noir 2013

    Regular Price: $79.99

    Special Price: $77.99

    As low as: $74.00

    Each vintage of Farrside pinot noir exhibits more masculinity, structure and savoury components, while deep meaty, spicy and mineral flavours also continue to evolve. A balanced array of red and black fruits, Farrside pinot noir is fresh and edgy with bucketloads of character. This is a firm yet delicate wine with a long-textured finish.


    Review - "Started in on the new By Farr wines late last week before a cold/flu set in. The Farrside is as far as I got. Nick Farr refers to the 2013s as "crowd pleasers". This is a beauty. Seduction plus. Certified yum. Swish oak, spiced cherry-plum, exquisite integration of various savoury nuances and length to burn. It's rich and generous but firm and complex.
    Its smoky, slinky, satiny mouthfeel is to die for. For sheer top-end drinkability; it's sensational. 96 points Winefront.com.au"

  3. S.C. Pannell SCP Tempranillo 2014

    S.C. Pannell SCP Tempranillo 2014

    Regular Price: $22.99

    Special Price: $21.00

    As low as: $20.50

    ..... Bright, friendly, fruity, spicy perfume. Juiciness to texture, some savouriness of earth and stones in the mix of dark, gently sweet fruit with a whip crack of acidity to freshen the palate. It’s like every wine you’ve drunk too much of because you’re onto a good thing. Slurp away, satisfied, touch of complexity, feels good in the mouth, goes down with a glide. Yes thanks; and what a bargain! 93 points Winefront.com.au


    Includes 10% tinto cao; matured in used French puncheons for 8 months. Has the same gravitas that is unique to McLaren Vale grenache, immediately establishing this is a real red wine, not a raspberry milkshake. You don't even have to go past the bouquet to know its cred, 
    dark fruits as much as red, and good tannins to boot. 95 points James Halliday
