  1. Tim Smith Wines Mataro 2013

    Tim Smith Wines Mataro 2013

    Regular Price: $36.00

    Special Price: $34.00

    As low as: $32.99

    ...... black Russian tomatoes steaming on the toast, dribbling beneath a shiny port and cream reduction, black pepper everywhere. This makes surrender a delight. It’s a third the price of a good Bandol, and a tiny fraction of the cost of that air ticket.
    Be quick! Sublime in as many ways as I can think, and believe me, my sodden old brain has spread so wide it’s dribbling off the edges of the plate.

  2. Riposte The Sabre Pinot Noir 2013

    Riposte The Sabre Pinot Noir 2013

    Regular Price: $31.50

    Special Price: $30.00

    As low as: $29.00

    Small batch open-fermented and 10 months in French oak (25% new). The bouquet sings of red and black cherry, allied with twists of raspberry and oak, the palate effortlessly carrying on with the refrain of the bouquet; 
    has particularly good drive through to the finish and slightly savoury aftertaste.
    95 points James Halliday

  3. Bleasdale Frank Potts Cabernet Blend 2012

    Bleasdale Frank Potts Cabernet Blend 2012

    Regular Price: $31.00

    Special Price: $30.00

    As low as: $29.00

    .....Bright crimson-purple; has absorbed the oak while preserving the cassis fruits and softening the tannins; good length and balance. Drink to 2027." 94 points James Halliday, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2015, 1 August 2014
    ..... Langhorne fruit exuberance, all blackberried and blueberried, but with grainy, smoky, gum leafy tannin keeping it firm and strict and proper. Full-bodied but not overdone. Sound, fruit-filled length. Oak as a complement but not in an overt and dominant manner. Will keep developing in the cellar over a good number of years. 93+ points Winefront

  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. 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

    As low as: $37.00

    95 points - "Armed with flavour and dangerously drinkable. Red and black berries, ground Asian spice, earth, aniseed and a quick kiss of cedary French oak. Puts on an impeccable performance. 95 points Drink to 2024." Campbell Mattinson, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2015, 1 August 2014

  2. Stoney Rise Chardonnay 2013

    Stoney Rise Chardonnay 2013

    Regular Price: $32.99

    Special Price: $31.99

    As low as: $31.50

    From the Tamar Valley, 50% barrel-fermented in French oak. The wine is still quartz-white, but has terrific drive and intensity to its pink grapefruit and green apple fruit flavours, the length of the finish formidable. 94 points James Halliday
    Tangy lemon drink, green pear, perfumed dusty cedar wood. Light to medium bodied, zesty and acid driven – just on the cusp of ripeness – flavours mainly lemon but with a very subtle softening gloss of almond cream. Closes all perky and flinty.  Zing. Refreshing style for lusty drinking. 91 points Winefront.com.au

    Stoney Rise Pinot Noir 2013

    Regular Price: $32.99

    Special Price: $31.99

    As low as: $31.50

    Bright, clear crimson purple, the ultra-fragrant small red fruits of the bouquet do not prepare you for the power of the palate, with foresty/stemmy tannins woven through the
    abundant red berry/cherry fruits providing texture as well as a flavour counterpart to the juicy red fruits on the long finish. 95pts James Halliday
