  1. Yelland & Papps Devote Shiraz Rousanne 2011

    Yelland & Papps Devote Shiraz Rousanne 2011
    $33.00

    $35; 13.5% alcohol; screw cap; 94+ points Phillip White - THIS wine just stole my tattered heart.
    My first taste of a Shiraz Roussanne blend came in the form of d’Arenberg’s The Wild Pixie 2008. This has an even larger Roussanne component of 15% and it’s actually the better wine  ...  Flagrantly floral and outrageously perfumed. Purple fruits, anise, pepper, raspberry and a whole cornucopia of other fragrances. The white grape influence is not only apparent on the nose but also the palate which is silky and slippery with fine, drying tannin. It’s a crazy ride but an enjoyable one just the same. If John Waters made a wine this would be it. 93 Very Good Wine Will Eat Itself

  2. Yelland & Papps Second Take Grenache 2013

    Yelland & Papps Second Take Grenache 2013

    Regular Price: $38.00

    Special Price: $35.00

    As low as: $34.00

    30% whole bunches were incorporated in the 10-day ferment, then taken to French oak (36% new) for 10 months; neither filtered nor fined; 14% Barossa Valley grenache; whole bunch fermentation. Yelland & Papps are certainly challenging the status quo, and doing so with great elan. This is awash with juicy red fruits, the finish bright and lively, rather than squashy; fruit, oak and acidity in absolute harmony.

    Yelland & Papps Second Take Shiraz 2012
    $38.00

    93 points - Philip White - ... . manufacture, then charging an extra fiver for making available the privilege of drinking her raw and unwritten. Get some mates and lovers round for dinner. Dob in and buy one each of these. Then bring three conventional favourites, pour ’em blind, and argue all night.
    Deep, bright crimson-purple; the deeply-fruited bouquet leads into an immaculately balanced and structured medium- to full-bodied palate, with plum, black cherry and blackberry to the fore, quality oak and fine-grained tannins bringing up the finish. 95 points James Halliday

    Regular Price: $19.50

    ....We have a live one here, and unusually for a $20 Shiraz it deserves, nay demands, to be served in a big Shiraz glass.
    Excellent 93 points Winefront.com.au

    .... the length of the palate is nothing more than an inevitable consequence of all that has gone before.
    This is ridiculous value for a wine that can be drunk soon, or in 20 years.

    Regular Price: $30.99

    Special Price: $29.50

    As low as: $28.50

     


    .......The palate reveals lovely intensity of nectarine and citrus fruits with lemon curd and cedar. The wine is a complex balance between the fresh stone fruits, bright acid and wonderful creamy texture.
    Wild yeast-fermented in French oak. Intense and incisive, the flavours racing along the palate with classic grapefruit opening the bouquet and closing the palate, white peach the wicket keeper.” – 94 Points James Halliday

  3. Massena Saperavi 2012

    Massena Saperavi 2012

    Regular Price: $26.99

    Special Price: $25.50

    As low as: $25.00

    A dense bright inky purple colour lives up to its varietal meaning. Red liquorice, Turkish delight and exotic spices jump out the glass. A plush and silky mouth feel gives immediate enjoyment, before the dark and intense tannins round out a full but surprisingly delicate fruit palate. As with any Massena wine, the wine can be enjoyed straight away to delight in its fruit purity, or throw one at the back of the cellar for a few years for a softer drinking experience.

  1. Massena Tannat 2012

    Massena Tannat 2012

    Regular Price: $26.99

    Special Price: $25.50

    As low as: $25.00

    An impenetrable bright purple colour that stains the glass gives the impression of intensity and purity and the wine doesn’t let us down. The nose has slight briary and leafy hints before a rush of fresh raspberries fills the nose. Chewy, but supple tannins backed with dense blackberry flavours ensure a gob full of flavour.

  2. 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

    Woodlands Cabernet Merlot 2012

    Regular Price: $24.50

    Special Price: $23.99

    As low as: $21.00

    Bright hue; a tightly scripted exercise in precision, balance and length, its blackcurrant and spice fruit driving the fresh, medium-bodied palate; the varietal mix and sense of place occupy equal parts of the stage. 94 points James Halliday
    ... Medium bodied, firm in the mouth with open weave grainy tannin – tactile things they are – red and black fruit, tobacco and clear acidity. Love the slick of grainy tannin on the finish that marks it a more serious wine than you’re paying for. A terrific vintage for this wine.
