    Mania Tamar Valley Chardonnay 2016

    Regular Price: $33.50

    Special Price: $31.50

    As low as: $30.00
    "Well. Does it get boring if I simply say that They’ve Done It Again? This is a sophisticated chardonnay, ripped with flint, woodsmoke, meal and toast, its core of grapefruit, slate, white peach and crushed fennel providing both the drive and the substance. It’s all wound up, like one of those rubber-band toy cars of old, but it still manages to push appreciably through the finish an Learn More

  2. Little Giant Barossa Shiraz 2017

    Little Giant Barossa Shiraz 2017

    Regular Price: $22.00

    Special Price: $19.99

    As low as: $18.00
    Barossa Shiraz. Hard to go wrong, and you certainly won’t here. This is an amazingly good buying/drinking option. So dark, so supple, so polished. Boom, as the wannabe cool kids say. Violet, clove, plum and sweet spice. The bounce of boysenberry. Sweet fruit galore. It’s not overly dark in colour terms but it tastes like ink, if that makes sense. It feels good in the mouth but it also feels ready to explode. When people ask me What’s A Good Shiraz? This is now my recommendation." Rated : 92 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

  3. Onannon Chardonnay 2017

    Onannon Chardonnay 2017

    Regular Price: $36.00

    Special Price: $34.99

    As low as: $34.00
    This is smoking Chardonnay, and a little smoky with it too. The struck match, almond, nectarine and citrus leads the way, then into a palate that’s singing in clear voice. Flinty, bright, juicy, almond and stuck match – finesse and power – crunch of green pear and grapefruit to close. Oak lends some spice and structural scaffolding, but feels a minor player. Magnificent. It’s one of those “Am I 95 or 96 points here?” wines, and while I used to be indecisive, I still d Learn More

  1. Wild & Wilder Tabula Rasa White 2018 (500 mL)

    Wild & Wilder Tabula Rasa White 2018 (500 mL)
    "Semillon 70%, Sauvignon Blanc 20%, Arneis 6%, Petit Manseng 4%, with about 24 hours of skin contact. It’s one of Giles Cooke’s projects for Alliance Wine. Comes in a cute 500ml crown seal bottle. Pretty, floral, raw almond, lime, bright, juicy, chalky feel, lemon pith bitterness, a refreshing, quinine-like finish of fair length. It’s charming, but most of all, flat out delicious to drink." Rated : 93 Points Gary Winefront. Learn More

  2. Rieslingfreak No.2 Polish Hill River Riesling 2018

    Rieslingfreak No.2 Polish Hill River Riesling 2018

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $23.50

    As low as: $22.99
    This is a typical No.2, showing classic flinty green apple notes. This year, being a warmer vintage, there are also tropical and pear hints, while the wine still reflects the characteristic purity of the sub-region. The wine still shows the purity of Polish Hill River, with some slate and mineral characteristics, and flavours of green apple, bright citrus and pear. Learn More

  3. Clonakilla Hilltops Shiraz 2017

    Clonakilla Hilltops Shiraz 2017

    Regular Price: $29.50

    Special Price: $27.99

    As low as: $25.00
    2017 was a beautifully medium-bodied season in Hilltops, giving birth to a wine that captures the fragrant and spicy personality of shiraz with great detail. It entices with rose hip and white pepper over a core of red cherries and greengage plums but it’s the lingering finish that really sets it apart, structured with magnificent, finely textured tannins.

  1. Mania Tamar Valley Pinot Noir 2017

    Mania Tamar Valley Pinot Noir 2017

    Regular Price: $33.50

    Special Price: $31.50

    As low as: $30.00
    Tasting Note: A fragrant, lifted nose of red berries, dark plum, cedar wood and exotic spices instantly escape from the glass. The palate has serious depth and an intense burst of flavour but with a seamless mouth-feel pulled tight with sand-like tannin, pure fruit flavour, spice and fresh Tasmanian acidity. A wine that will partner many cuisines from light canapes through to richer slow-cooked dishes. Learn More

    94 Points The Wine Front -Sweet red cherry, rose petal scents, raspberry, dried cranberry. The gist, red fruits, lots of them. There’s spice, salty liquorice and brambly-herbal things too. Medium weight in the palate, hemmed with powdery, shapely, pumice-stone-like tannins – architecture is great, the feel great, the drinking experience ultra-satsifying. The pool of fine amaro-Campari like coolness-herbiness-sour red fruits to close, the clincher. Yum. Such a lovely, sophisticated wine for the bucks." - Mike Learn More

    It’s another beauty. So pretty, so well fruited, so well managed as it ripples through the mouth. It tastes of peanuts and chocolate, black cherries and anise. It has a floral lift. It’s succulent. It’s another beauty Tannin is superfine. Oak is high quality and entirely positive. It needs a little time to come together but there’s no question over this wine’s quality. No hesitation in placing a ‘buy’ recommendation. Campbell Mattinson Deepish red/purple colour with a fragrant herb, lightly spicy and charmingly floral bouquet Learn More
