  1. Tim Smith Wines Grenache 2012

    Tim Smith Wines Grenache 2012

    Regular Price: $35.00

    Special Price: $33.33

    As low as: $32.99

    ... lovely things, but chalk and cheese in style.  While this is Tim’s first straight Grenache under his own brand, we should approach with the respect due his Chateau Tanunda The Everest Old Bush Vine Grenache 2008, which won the International Wine Trade Fair trophy for being the World’s Best Single Estate Red Wine in London.  Welcome back aboard the Grenache train, Mister Smith!
    .... typical light colour, and a touch of sweet confection that is entirely varietal in the Barossa Valley context; a plus is the focus preserved by the moderate alcohol, often missing in action. 93 points James Halliday
    .... The flavours bounce around your mouth. It has a warmth but it has an elegance. Sweet at its core but only just. This is a terrific Oz grenache. Its best should be ahead of it. 93 points Winefront.com.au

  2. Tim Smith Wines Shiraz 2012

    Tim Smith Wines Shiraz 2012

    Regular Price: $36.00

    Special Price: $34.50

    As low as: $34.00

    Blackberry, plum, a little nougat and coconut, chocolate. Classic modern Barossa with a nod to tradition. Medium to full bodied, round and supple with ultra-fine grained tannin fleshing out the palate and just-right acidity through its core. Long through the finish with a kiss of oak and perfectly ripe dark berry fruit. Textbook. Here’s the style of Barossa Shiraz that hits a chord with me.
    Open string E, perhaps. Could rate it one higher, but won’t. It’s not one louder, it’s one better. 94 points. Winefront.com.au

  3. Woodlands Chardonnay 2013

    Woodlands Chardonnay 2013

    The colour of our 2013 Chardonnay is vibrant straw. The nose reveals peach, pear, struck match and toasty French oak notes. The palate carries a sweet middle core of stone fruits, quince, cashews and spice, finishing bright and textured from the natural acidity. This wine will be best enjoyed from 2016 to 2019

    Eden Road Wines the Long Road Shiraz 2011

    Regular Price: $24.00

    Special Price: $22.99

    As low as: $21.50

    Light but bright hue; a very elegant wine with a core of red cherry and plum fruit, supported rather than challenged by superfine tannins and oak (10% new French puncheons). Making a better shiraz given the vintage would have been nigh on impossible, but it is probable this wine will principally appeal to lovers of pinot noir. 94 points James Halliday

  2. Willow Bridge Solana Tempranillo 2012

    Willow Bridge Solana Tempranillo 2012

    Regular Price: $28.00

    Special Price: $24.99

    I must add as a post script, that I thought this wine was about $45, rather than $30. This means that you should buy some! I should too! Excellent – Outstanding / 94 points Sealed With Wax
    Matured in used French oak, this is a cut above many tempranillos, with superfine tannins running through its mix of red and black cherry fruits providing excellent texture, structure and length. 94 points James Halliday

  3. Willow Bridge Dragon Fly Cabernet Merlot 2012

    Willow Bridge Dragon Fly Cabernet Merlot 2012

    Regular Price: $18.00

    Special Price: $16.99

    Mid crimson-purple; an elegant, juicy and harmonious wine, matured in new and used French oak, awash with bright, juicy, redcurrant and blackcurrant fruit supported by fine, silky tannins. Great drinking over the next 4-5 years, sooner if you wish. 93 points James Halliday

  1. Meerea Park XYZ Shiraz 2013

    Meerea Park XYZ Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $18.99

    Special Price: $17.99

    As low as: $16.67

    A glossy mid-crimson colour in the glass with purple tinges and aromatics of violets and red berries. The palate is proudly medium-bodied but does not lack in flavour with plenty of varietal red and dark berries. The large format French oak is unobtrusive and the tannins are silky.

  2. Yangarra Roussanne 2014

    Yangarra Roussanne 2014

    Regular Price: $29.99

    Special Price: $28.50

    As low as: $27.00

    There’s a bit of thought gone into these wines from Yangarra. Says on the back label “Grown on a 2 acre block on ironstone gravelly sand. Hand picked and whole berry pressed using basket press. 30% fermented in large ceramic eggs (half on skins for 90 days), 60% in older French oak, and 10% new French oak. 7 months in barrel and stirred on lees. Certified bio-dynamic.” And, luckily for me, I’m not quite a touch typist, but pretty damned quick. 269 dozen made.
    Lemon barley, white flowers and vanilla bean, pie apple and cinnamon. Medium bodied, fleshy smooth and chalky texture, just right acidity, savoury and creamy, punctuated by lime and lemon rind on a pretty long finish. Complex and interesting. Could even turn the head of a committed Chardonnay drinker. 94 points Winefront.com.au

  3. Greywacke Wild Sauvignon

    Greywacke Wild Sauvignon

    Regular Price: $37.00

    Special Price: $35.99

    As low as: $34.00

    Some old French oak, wild yeast, time on lees, funk. Not your usual NZ sauvignon blanc. Excellent intensity. A tonne of wild character. Gravel, tropical fruit, sweat, earth, thistles, orange peels, sulphur. Has a slippery smooth coating to it, but pulpy passionfruity acidity refuses to be calmed. So intense it almost hurts. Excellent lingering finish. Armed and dangerous style of sauvignon blanc. In-your-face but remarkable quality. Rated : 94 Points WInefront.com.au
