  1. Passopisciaro Etna Passorosso 2016

    Passopisciaro Etna Passorosso 2016

    Regular Price: $69.00

    Special Price: $65.00

    Raspberry, cherry, light spice and smokiness, almond, floral prettiniess this vintage too. Bright red fruits, firm, brick dust tannin, very ‘mineral’ and stony, slip of orange peel and dried herb on the finish. It’s a complete iteration of Passorosso with weight of fruit, freshness and perfume all in the mix. Splendid." Rated : 95 Points Gary @ Winefront.com.au Learn More

Medium-bodied, silky glycerol feel, ripe fine tannin buried under it, succulence of red fruit with some dried herb, beautiful texture, and a very long, pretty finish.

  3. Olek Bondonio Rosso Carolina 2017

    Olek Bondonio Rosso Carolina 2017

    Regular Price: $60.00

    Special Price: $58.00

    A blend of Barbera, Dolcetto and Pelaverga dedicated to Olek's daughter Carolina. 2017 was an hard, hot and dry vintage. The Barbera was very concentrated and high in alcohol as a result; so Olek decided to blend in some dolcetto and pelaverga. The result is a beautiful wine, plenty of freshness as the barbera only went through 50% of the malolactic fermentation. "This is a barbera with some dolcetto and pelaverga. Powerful but fresh style here. Barbera didn’t suit a solo wine in 2017 from Olek, per se. I loved this wine from t Learn More

  1. Luke Lambert Syrah 2018

    Luke Lambert Syrah 2018

    Regular Price: $37.50

    Special Price: $36.99

    Many people know I don’t go a bunch on Shiraz, or more precisely, I have quite specific needs. Luke Lambert is the Jim Clark of winemakers. Neon purple, perfume, pepper, boysenberry, blackcurrant, honey biscuits. It’s light to medium-bodied, intense small berried black fruit, plenty of bunch and spice, highlight is ultra-pure mineral water acidity, fine chalky tannin, and a long crisp peppery finish. Wonderful delineation and expression of Shiraz. Often not for everyone, but works for me. And so often you are defined by what you don’t do. Learn More

    “Early-release, low-sulphur, unfiltered Grenache.” Raspberry, iron-filings, flowers and spice. It’s medium-bodied, juicy and lively, exuberant, but not sweet, with an under-current of ironstone, fine-grained tannin, cranberry acidity, and a musky perfumed finish of solid length, a stroke of emery tannin keeping it neat. It’s flat out delicious. Highly recommended."92 points Winefront.com.au   Learn More

  3. De Iuliis Steven Vineyard Shiraz 2017

    De Iuliis Steven Vineyard Shiraz 2017

    Regular Price: $36.50

    Special Price: $35.00

    As low as: $34.00
    2017 De Iuliis Steven Vineyard (A$40)was for me an excellent example of stylish, medium-bodied Hunter shiraz. Kirkwood was expansive, writing, “It starts with gentle-weighted, plush red fruits, builds through the palate and continues to develop into a rather demanding wine. Vibrant rose petal and violets to start with – seems light on its feet, then builds through a light- to mid-weighted raspberry and mulberry palate that flows through to a rather fine-framed yet lingering and beautiful wine. Pure and pretty. The shape and flo Learn More

    Vasse Felix Filius Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    Regular Price: $27.00

    Special Price: $25.99

    As low as: $25.00
    "The entry level Cabernet from Vasse Felix, and very good it is too. Perfume, earthy lead pencil stuff, dark fruits, a little bay leaf and spice. It’s medium-bodied, dark fruit, tobacco, dark chocolate liquorice, crisp and so well defined, firm fine tannin, tight long finish. Complex savoury flavour, excellent shape, and high drinking pleasure. Tops." Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    Black jellybean, menthol, hedgerow, blackcurrant and raspberry. Medium-bodied, juicy burst but with black olive and pencil/earth savouries, buoyant, fresh, complex, dusty emery tannin, and a long and briary finish. Such a great drink. 94 or 95 points."
