  1. Cherubino Pedestal Chardonnay 2013

    Cherubino Pedestal Chardonnay 2013

    Regular Price: $27.00

    Special Price: $25.99

    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

  2. Pike & Joyce Sirocco Chardonnay 2014

    Pike & Joyce Sirocco Chardonnay 2014

    Regular Price: $30.00

    Special Price: $27.50

    As low as: $26.00

    Medium to pale green, straw tints, understated yet complex at the same time, this wine displays typical white peach, grapefruit and creamy characters with hints of struck match, char and hazelnut in the background. The medium weight palate delivers white peach, hazelnut and cream with well balanced acidity and a little texture giving the wine line and length. Tight, but gorgeous!

  3. Crabtree Watervale Cabernet 2013

    Crabtree Watervale Cabernet 2013

    Regular Price: $24.99

    Special Price: $22.99

    As low as: $21.99

    Clare Valley estate-grown cabernet sauvignon matured in all French oak.


    Rugged with tannin but the fruit here seems up to the task. A good stint in the cellar is certainly going to be required. Blackcurrant, eucalypt, gravel and swish, polished, cedar oak.
    Brilliant value for the patient. 94+ points Winefront.com.au

  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

    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

  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. Turkey Flat Grenache 2013

    Turkey Flat Grenache 2013

    Regular Price: $26.50

    Special Price: $25.00


    Reviews and Awards



    Grown mostly on 100 year old vines though some younger vines give it a hand.


    Both sturdy and pretty at once. Aniseed, raspberry, sand and loam flavours with a rusty, clovey edge. Feels structural and firm as it machines its way through the mouth. An earth wine with a flush of berried/floral fruit. Quality style, and wine. Rated : 93+ Points Tasted : Apr15 Alcohol : 14.5% Price : $29 Campbell Mattinson the Wine Front April 2015




    2013 Grenache - 'delicious delight'


    Tapping into one of the Barossa's great resources, vines that have been producing for a century, here dominating the fruit that goes into this simply juicy and delicious delight, smelling of fragrant fruit orchards, leaf, trunk and earth, with a soft, medium-weight, squelchy and generous cherry box set of flavours, subtle woods, gentle and generous red fruits. A sum of many regional elements. 4 stars Value: Tempting Tony Love, The Adelaide Advertiser Taste March 25 2015

  2. Wicks Estate Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2013

    Wicks Estate Adelaide Hills Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $21.50

    Special Price: $20.00

    As low as: $19.00

    Dark cherry and black fruit flavours, cool climate spice and elegance all gently integrate with fine silken tannins highlighting the careful selection of French oak barriques.


    Single vineyard; multiple batches, variously fermented and macerated, matured in French barriques (34% new). The bouquet is inviting, but doesn't prepare you for the explosion of exceptionally intense flavour as the wine enters the mouth; it is almost inevitable that it should back off somewhat on the back-palate, 
    but this is still a very good wine, and a steal at the price. 94 points James Halliday

  3. Sons of Eden Zephyrus Barossa Shiraz 2013

    Sons of Eden Zephyrus Barossa Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $31.00

    Special Price: $29.99

    As low as: $27.99

    Perfumed floral notes, dried herbs like sage and mint, mixed berries, spice and chocolate rolled in coconut  - all that stuff, and a very come-hither style it is too. Medium to full bodied, slurpy and silky with brown spice, mixed berries and chocolate, though tannin beds it down very well and offers just the right amount of grip and texture – masterful tannin work here, really – juiciness and freshness on a pretty long and sweet/spicy finish.
    All these Sons of Eden wines share attributes of balance, and drinkability. The kitchen sink is never thrown in to impress you, then whack you over the head. Fine wines of regionality and charm. 93 points Winefront.com.au
