  1. Woodlands Cabernet Merlot 2012

    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.

  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

    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

  1. Eden Road Wines the Long Road Pinot Noir 2012

    Eden Road Wines the Long Road Pinot Noir 2012

    Regular Price: $24.00

    Special Price: $22.99

    As low as: $21.50

    The use of 25% whole bunches in the fermentation of this wine provides a sappy cold tea aromatic lift that sits comfortably alongside fragrant red fruits and a suggestion of spicy oak; the palate reveals a muscular structure, with fine tannins and chalky acidity leading to a generously long finish; will reveal more suppleness and finesse with time in bottle. 92 points James Halliday

  2. Head Wines the Blonde 2012 (375 mL)

    Head Wines the Blonde 2012 (375 mL)

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $22.00

    As low as: $21.00

    Distinctly peppery and stalky, vanilla and floral perfume, chocolate and black fruit – like a serious furrowed brow Pinot Noir! Medium to full bodied, pretty firm and tense in the mouth, not so slippery and seductive as previous releases; the blond has gone all librarian on us and means business. But let’s get down to business! Chocolate, vanilla and stalk with firm tannin on a long finish. Interesting. I like it. Stamp my card. 95 points Winefront.com.au

    Wirra Wirra The 12th Man Chardonnay 2013

    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

  1. Bannockburn 1314 a.d. Pinot Noir 2013

    Bannockburn 1314 a.d. Pinot Noir 2013

    Regular Price: $27.00

    Special Price: $26.50

    As low as: $25.00

    "Opens very stern, decidedly grunty in briar, dried herbs and wet earth scents, but unfurls majestically with time. Savoury, firm across the palate, revealing simple dark fruit characters, but settling into graphite, earth and wet stone-like minerality too. It's an exciting wine for tannin and strictness but also the layers of fruit impact. Finishes with a lick of gentle sweetness swept away by chalky pucker. So satisfying to see such structure and texture at this price point."
    94+ points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, Oct 2014.

    Pike & Joyce Chardonnay 2013

    Regular Price: $30.00

    Special Price: $27.99

    As low as: $26.00

    White peach, almond and cream, flick of struck match and light spicy oak. Fine though the palate, yet flavoursome, with a glossy creamy cashew glide pulled back by some grapefruit flavour and acidity.
    Flinty finish. So good to drink. Spot on.  93 points Winefront.com.au

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $23.99

    As low as: $22.00

    "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
