  1. Twelftree Schuller Blewett Springs McLaren Vale Grenache 2012

    Twelftree Schuller Blewett Springs McLaren Vale Grenache 2012

    Regular Price: $40.00

    Special Price: $38.50

    As low as: $35.00

    There's a layer of ferruginous clay between them. It smells more dusty than sandy, with maraschino cocktail cherries and bittersweet pickled morello cherries soused together in lemon juice; maybe there's pithy strawberries in the bowl, too. The dark morellos dominate the flavour, which is a neat, tight, linear arrangement with a hint of fresh soft licorice. It's fine of flesh, and its viscosity is just right for those joyous, open-hearted flavours. It's more like an elegant entry-level burgundy from, say, the Seysses family's Domaine Dujac, than any traditional Ocker Grenache. 93++ Points Phillip White

  2. Stoney Rise Pinot Noir 2014

    Stoney Rise Pinot Noir 2014

    Regular Price: $32.99

    Special Price: $31.99

    As low as: $31.50

    Bright, clear crimson purple, the ultra-fragrant small red fruits of the bouquet do not prepare you for the power of the palate, with foresty/stemmy tannins woven through the abundant red berry/cherry fruits providing texture as well as a flavour counterpart to the juicy red fruits on the long finish. 95pts James Halliday


    This is good Pinot, you can tell straight off the bat. Red fruits, light dusting of cinnamon spice and aromatic herbs, some meaty smoky complexity too, oak very much in the background. Light to medium bodied, crunchy sort of cranberry acidity and flavour, emery tannin, clean pure fruit and a long controlled finish. Depth + vivacity. Fits the bill for drinking young, or popping in the cellar if you fancy a little bit more. So tasty! 94 points Gary Walsh Winefront.com.au"

    95 points - "Armed with flavour and dangerously drinkable. Red and black berries, ground Asian spice, earth, aniseed and a quick kiss of cedary French oak. Puts on an impeccable performance. 95 points Drink to 2024." Campbell Mattinson, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2015, 1 August 2014

  1. Lake Breeze Bernoota 2012

    Lake Breeze Bernoota 2012

    Regular Price: $23.00

    Special Price: $21.99

    As low as: $20.00

    Slightly less new oak than used for previous vintages. If you’ve been known to enjoy a bottle of Lake Breeze’s famed Bernoota red, then you will love this. It’s a classic example of the label. Balanced, bountifully-fruited, slapped with sexy vanillin/coffeed/musky oak but, importantly, beautifully well balanced. Tickled with fine tannin through the finished.
    Spot on example of the style.93+ points Winefront

  2. Bleasdale Frank Potts Cabernet Blend 2012

    Bleasdale Frank Potts Cabernet Blend 2012

    Regular Price: $31.00

    Special Price: $30.00

    As low as: $29.00

    .....Bright crimson-purple; has absorbed the oak while preserving the cassis fruits and softening the tannins; good length and balance. Drink to 2027." 94 points James Halliday, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2015, 1 August 2014
    ..... Langhorne fruit exuberance, all blackberried and blueberried, but with grainy, smoky, gum leafy tannin keeping it firm and strict and proper. Full-bodied but not overdone. Sound, fruit-filled length. Oak as a complement but not in an overt and dominant manner. Will keep developing in the cellar over a good number of years. 93+ points Winefront

    Woodlands Chardonnay 2014

    Regular Price: $24.00

    Special Price: $21.60

    As low as: $20.50

    "95 Points. Very pale straw-green; a medley - and melody - of white peach, melon and grapefruit interwoven with barrel ferment characters and discreet French oak, all in the mainstream of elegant Margaret River chardonnay, acidity carrying the fruit well into the aftertaste. 13.5% alc. RRP $25" - James Halliday, Wine Companion Magazine, Aug/Sept 2015. 95 points

  1. Tim Smith Wines Barossa Shiraz 2013

    Tim Smith Wines Barossa Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $36.00

    Special Price: $34.50

    As low as: $34.00
    “Always enjoy the wines from Tim Smith, and could you have a more modest name than Tim Smith? Two syllables. It’s pretty much business as usual for Tim Smith Shiraz here, so if you’ve liked the past few vintages, then no surprises here. Blackberry, chocolate, vanilla nougat, spicy biscuits etc. Medium to full bodied, deep flavour, firm grainy tannin and well balanced acidity, then mixed dark berries, vanilla and Barossa coal run through to a long and tannic finish. Textbook. Likely a little more to come over the next few years.”- 93+ points Gary Walsh.

     

    "Matured on fine yeast lees in mostly French oak; sourced from 10 vineyards, the oldest 130 years; part Barossa Valley, part Eden Valley. Made with great skill, this is a seriously good wine, awash with black fruits, licorice and 
    fine, brambly tannins; the balance and length are perfect, the oak fully integrated" - 96 Points James Halliday

    Tim Smith Wines Mataro 2013

    Regular Price: $36.00

    Special Price: $34.00

    As low as: $32.99

    ...... black Russian tomatoes steaming on the toast, dribbling beneath a shiny port and cream reduction, black pepper everywhere. This makes surrender a delight. It’s a third the price of a good Bandol, and a tiny fraction of the cost of that air ticket.
    Be quick! Sublime in as many ways as I can think, and believe me, my sodden old brain has spread so wide it’s dribbling off the edges of the plate.

    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
