    Mike Bennie 93 pointsBeautiful cool climate shiraz (syrah) expression here. Murdoch Hill should firmly be on the radar by now. Pretty red fruited, briary, white pepper and charcuterie scents. Savoury from the get go. Medium weight, slinky textured, rose hip jam meets game meat flavours, pinch of pepper and smudged-slate-like tannins to close. Distinctive, elegant red of high charisma. Almost pinot-like in a way. Just lovely really.The Wine Front, 22 June 2017 James Halliday 95 Points30% whole bunches, Learn More

    Such an attractive wine, undeniably complex, but also with a gulpability that tugs you back into your glass. Saline, tangy, flinty-mineral acidity is a major player here, but there’s cereal and halva savouriness built around it. The perfume is all steely citrus and flint, grapefruit and green apple, so fresh feeling and appealing. There’s a luxurious length and lingering feel to the wine too. It’s tightly wound but supremely balanced above all. You can take all the fanciness here and lavish in it, Learn More

    As low as: $35.00
    "This is the Syrah I've been trying to make for 14 years," states Luke. As an opening statement from such a quietly spoken winemaker, it couldn't be any more definitive. "It's still light in it's feet and framed by crisp acids, but with loads of black pepper spice and the full gamut of red cherry through to sweet blackberry fruit." Luke also sights the whole bunches playing the key role in supporting the fruit with a bright, refreshing spine of tannins and dried herb complexity. In short, "...something I've been shooting for since I started making my own wine." Luke Lambert has every r Learn More

    "Single vineyard. Made by Purple Hands. Blend of shiraz, montepulciano and aglianico. All French oak, most of it old. Bowled over by balance. It’s bold with flavour but everything here feels so well placed. It tastes of licorice, redcurrant, black cherries and peppery herbs, and while there’s a velvety/creaminess to the texture oak is not a major flavour contributor. Tannin spreads and runs through a good deal of the wine, almost always a good sign. Learn More

    Giant Steps Yarra Valley Light Dry Red 2017

    Regular Price: $34.99

    Special Price: $33.99

    As low as: $32.00
    This exciting new wine – LDR stands for Light Dry Red – is a 51/49 blend of pinot noir from the high altitude Primavera vineyard with shiraz/syrah from the Sexton vineyard. The inspiration is Beaujolais, with a nod to the Hunter. You could guzzle this. It’d be pretty sophisticated guzzling, admittedly, but the freshness and flow of it almost begs you to dive in for more. It’s all fruit, spice and nuts, a sweetness to the fruit and a smoky/clovey character to the spice, some red Learn More

    "Out and about in Melbourne yesterday, saw this, bought a bottle, smashed it down, wrote a short note. So good. It’s subdued and winey, smooth and silky, with a fresh gooseberry tang, fennel and citrus, and finishes with a twist of tonic bitterness. Composure. Grace. Drinkabilty. Just superb".

    Great release this one. It has a sparkling clarity and energy  ... raspberries and blackberries, cracked pepper, spice, and a distinct sort of warm bricks smell, but don’t mind me. It’s fine and fresh, with graphite tannin, and a cool spiced bramble fruited finish of finesse and solid length. Rated : 94 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

  3. Wicks Estate Adelaide Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    Wicks Estate Adelaide Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    Regular Price: $21.50

    Special Price: $20.00

    Believe it….full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon from the Adelaide Hills. Estate grown, precisely planted, taking full advantage of the favourable conditions to ripen picture perfect clusters of tiny berries. This striking wine presents Cassis and dark fruit flavours expected from Cabernet, with subtle hints of tobacco and chocolate on the palate. After 12 months in French oak the soft silky tannins are finely balanced by the fruit flavours and subtle oak nuances. "This is an impressive cabernet release from Wicks Estate in those divine Adelaide Hills. Learn More

    Sons of Eden Marschall Shiraz 2016

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $24.50

    Deep Garnet in colour this wine bounces out of the glass with ripe red and blueberry compote aromas, underpinned by dark chocolate and spiced clove complexities. The palate is modern, fresh, juicy and alive. From an outstanding Barossa vintage, the wine is approachable now but will mature well for many more years.   Learn More

    ..... It has an exciting nose where strawberry and raspberry fruit are lifted by violet aromatics, and there are herbs, spices and the stony, rocky element that is hard to identify but undeniably present. ...... A definite wine of the year contender. Weekend Australian Learn More

    ....... Jasmine and vanilla perfume, lemon and lime, but delivered sotto voce, a certain mineral oil thing. ..... with a juiciness and mouth-perfume, crunch of acidity and dusting of chalky texture, and a lovely grip and lime rind thing on the long, and very convincing finish.

  1. Norfolk Rise Shiraz 2016

    Norfolk Rise Shiraz 2016

    Regular Price: $17.00

    Special Price: $16.00

    Dark chocolate and cherries are at the heart of this shiraz. A sprinkling of spices including pepper and clove adds complexity to the delicious forest berry fruit flavours. This is an elegant wine with great structure and fine tannins. It's great drinking now but can easily be cellared for another 8-10 years for further fruit development. Pork belly, braised lamb shanks or barbecued steak would make an excellent food match. 97 points & Trophy for Best Shiraz - Limestone Coast Wine Show 2017 2 Gold Medals - Melbourne Internation Learn More
