    Woodlands Cabernet Franc Merlot 2014

    Regular Price: $24.00

    Special Price: $21.60

    As low as: $20.50

    This wine is a blend of 47% Cabernet Franc, 46% Merlot, 4% Malbec, and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon that has spent 10 months maturing in one, two and three year old French barrels. Deep intense crimson in colour, the nose is broody and complex- with dark berry fruits dominating. The palate is dense and exotic, showing the beautiful red berry fruits of Merlot and Cabernet Franc combined with the spice of Malbec. The wine finishes with lashings of ripe fruit tannin.

    Crabtree Watervale Cabernet 2013

    Regular Price: $25.99

    Special Price: $23.39

    As low as: $22.99

    "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"
    Wine Companion tasting note. Rating: 95 points price $28.00 Date Tasted: 01 Dec 2014 Alcohol:13.5%
    Deep dark colour, plenty of flavour, feels gutsy throughout but not in any way loose or undisciplined. Impressive wine. Cassis, eucalypt, smoky/cedary oak and various floral characters. Assured through the finish. Tannin builds up a head of steam; cellar time is required but the quality is there.
    95 Points James Halliday Wine Companion

  3. 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

  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

    Woodlands Chardonnay 2014

    Regular Price: $24.00

    Special Price: $21.60

    As low as: $20.50

    "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

    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

  1. 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

  2. Willow Bridge Gravel Pit Shiraz 2013

    Willow Bridge Gravel Pit Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $29.00

    Special Price: $27.99

    As low as: $26.99

    .....flavoursome, but stylish wine, ripped with blackberry, clove and toast-like flavours and with excellent extension of fruit and tannin through the finish. It’s not the pits, it’s excellent. This will live and mature over a very long time. It feels sturdy.” 94 points Campbell Mattinson Winefront.com.au
    “Exquisite shiraz-dominant wine which uses small parcels of Mataro and Grenache to add complexity and a delightful floral influence. The previous vintage was good, this one is better. Love its lightness of touch and beautifully seductive nose. Effortlessly long palate with such brightness and life. Terrific”. 96/100 Ray Jordan ... concentrating the flavour profile of plum and blackberry fruit, complexity further aided by the inclusion of small amounts of Grenache and Mataro. Matured in French oak (20% new) which has not blunted the tannins. The wine is complete in every way. 95 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
