  1. Stoney Rise Holyman Chardonnay 2013

    Stoney Rise Holyman Chardonnay 2013

    Regular Price: $49.99

    Special Price: $47.99

    As low as: $45.50

    Wow. Smoke and struck match, white flower, aniseed and white fleshed fruit, gentle oak spice. A pretty wild ride but the palate is pitch perfect and powerful with a light gloss of honeycomb and almond, tight mineral acid, grapefruit, lime and a long flinty saline finish. Pretty funky and smoky, but so well defined and so good to drink: the fruit matches the winemaking work.
    Such personality. Superb. Wow. Drink: 2015 - 2023 96 points

    From the Tamar Valley, 50% barrel-fermented in French oak. The wine is still quartz-white, but has terrific drive and intensity to its pink grapefruit and green apple fruit flavours, the length of the finish formidable. 94 points James Halliday
    Tangy lemon drink, green pear, perfumed dusty cedar wood. Light to medium bodied, zesty and acid driven – just on the cusp of ripeness – flavours mainly lemon but with a very subtle softening gloss of almond cream. Closes all perky and flinty.  Zing. Refreshing style for lusty drinking. 91 points Winefront.com.au

    As low as: $24.00

    "This is a picture perfect example of Margaret River chardonnay, with nectarine, white peach and grapefruit criss-crossed with creamy/ figgy notes on the one hand, citrussy acidity on the other; oak has simply been a means to an end.  Alcohol: 13%"
    94 points  James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.
    ......seamlessly folds the fruit flavour together with the influences of fermentation with natural yeasts in new and used French oak barrels – followed by maturation in those barrels. The technique gives the wine a rich, silky texture to carry the beautiful fruit flavours satisfyingly across the palate. Chris Shannahan

    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

    "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

  3. 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

    ...... 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.

    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

  3. Riposte The Sabre Pinot Noir 2013

    Riposte The Sabre Pinot Noir 2013

    Regular Price: $31.50

    Special Price: $30.00

    As low as: $29.00

    Small batch open-fermented and 10 months in French oak (25% new). The bouquet sings of red and black cherry, allied with twists of raspberry and oak, the palate effortlessly carrying on with the refrain of the bouquet; 
    has particularly good drive through to the finish and slightly savoury aftertaste.
    95 points James Halliday
