    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

    What an advertisement for Grenache! Jumps right out of the glass at you - all ripe red fruit with some carbonic tutti fruit. Light colours and an utterly juicy, red fruited Grenache style but punctuated by light sandy tannins and a little alcohol warmth. 
    Mighty persistent red fruits to finish - that finish goes on and on, delivering real prettiness. 
    Delicious style. 18.1/20, 93/100 Andrew Graham Ozwinereview

    Ripened to within an inch of its life but it remains bright and lively. Whole bunch influence adds a smoky, twiggy savouriness to the sweetness of the fruit. Licorice and raspberry fruit flavour laid on.
    Web-like tannin. Delicious style. 93 points Winefront.com.au

  1. Twelftree Schuller Blewett Springs McLaren Vale Grenache 2012

    There's a layer of ferruginous clay between them. It smells more dusty than sandy, with maraschino cocktail cherries and bittersweet pickled morello cherries soused together in lemon juice; maybe there's pithy strawberries in the bowl, too. The dark morellos dominate the flavour, which is a neat, tight, linear arrangement with a hint of fresh soft licorice. It's fine of flesh, and its viscosity is just right for those joyous, open-hearted flavours. It's more like an elegant entry-level burgundy from, say, the Seysses family's Domaine Dujac, than any traditional Ocker Grenache. 93++ Points Phillip White

    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

  3. Tim Smith Wines Barossa Shiraz 2013

    Tim Smith Wines Barossa Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $36.00

    Special Price: $34.50

    As low as: $34.00
    “Always enjoy the wines from Tim Smith, and could you have a more modest name than Tim Smith? Two syllables. It’s pretty much business as usual for Tim Smith Shiraz here, so if you’ve liked the past few vintages, then no surprises here. Blackberry, chocolate, vanilla nougat, spicy biscuits etc. Medium to full bodied, deep flavour, firm grainy tannin and well balanced acidity, then mixed dark berries, vanilla and Barossa coal run through to a long and tannic finish. Textbook. Likely a little more to come over the next few years.”- 93+ points Gary Walsh.

     

    "Matured on fine yeast lees in mostly French oak; sourced from 10 vineyards, the oldest 130 years; part Barossa Valley, part Eden Valley. Made with great skill, this is a seriously good wine, awash with black fruits, licorice and 
    fine, brambly tannins; the balance and length are perfect, the oak fully integrated" - 96 Points James Halliday

    ...... 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.

    Riposte The Sabre Pinot Noir 2013

    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.

    Stoney Rise Pinot Noir 2014

    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


    This is good Pinot, you can tell straight off the bat. Red fruits, light dusting of cinnamon spice and aromatic herbs, some meaty smoky complexity too, oak very much in the background. Light to medium bodied, crunchy sort of cranberry acidity and flavour, emery tannin, clean pure fruit and a long controlled finish. Depth + vivacity. Fits the bill for drinking young, or popping in the cellar if you fancy a little bit more. So tasty! 94 points Gary Walsh Winefront.com.au"
