  1. Majella Coonawarra Cabernet 2015

    Majella Coonawarra Cabernet 2015

    Regular Price: $38.99

    Special Price: $31.99

    As low as: $31.00
    Dark red in colour, with a very complex nose with hints of blackberries and ripe cherries. This complexity carries over to the palate, rich, juicy and ribena-like. Magenta in colour, with a deep red hue. Mint, eucalypt and dark fruit aromas are evident on the nose, with a palate of plums and hints of fruitcake complexity give great length and backbone. Fruit, oak and tannin concentration will reward your patience.     Learn More

  2. Adelina Shiraz Mataro 2015

    Adelina Shiraz Mataro 2015

    Regular Price: $28.00

    Special Price: $26.99

    As low as: $25.00
    93 points “Toasted hazelnuts, coffee beans, spice, blackberry, a little mint and clean earthiness. Medium to full bodied, nutty and tannic, lovely feel to it, not fruity, definitely moving into the umami spectrum, clean acidity, good finish, with a roll of tannin that’s finely packed and inky. May carry a little alcohol warmth, but tasted over two days, it was more settled as it took the air. A wine of grand scale and distinctive character.”  Learn More

  3. Adelina Grenache 2016

    Adelina Grenache 2016

    Regular Price: $44.00

    Special Price: $43.00

    ....This is seriously good. Pinot lovers will like the lithe frame of the wine, nebbiolo fanciers will go for the tannin here. It's pungent in cranberry, rose water, raspberry jelly and a flourish of briar/dried herbs. Just under medium weight, the wine pools in the palate with clear, bright berry-soft jammy fruit flavours, ribbons of al dente tannins, amaro-like acidity. Long, detailed, delicious. A superb example of grenache at the apex. Wonderful drinking." 95 points, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au Learn More

  1. Adelina Shiraz 2016

    Adelina Shiraz 2016
    $47.00
    ... the wine really came into its own over the next few days, becoming more giving and generous, the tannins yielding to a gentler hug. A thoroughly seductive wine in the end." Max Allen, jancisrobinson.com     ... Boysenberry, mint, hazelnut, spicy oak in the background. Medium bodied, a light glossiness, but the firm dusting of emery tannin sweeps it all clean, the acidity fre Learn More

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $24.50

    As low as: $23.99
    Lovely grenache. Excellent. It crackles with spice, it runs with fruit, it’s splashed with earth. Exactly as you’d like your grenache to be. Effortless, honest, pure and pretty. Ripped with tannin too. Everything as it should be. The Purple Hands winery is in the best of form." Rated : 94 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

  3. Passopisciaro Etna Passorosso 2014

    Passopisciaro Etna Passorosso 2014

    Regular Price: $69.00

    Special Price: $59.99

    3. Passopisciaro Etna Passorosso 2014 ($65) - The importer has already sold out of this fantastic wine from the fertile slopes of Sicily’s Mount Etna. However, you can still find it (in rapidly decreasing quantities) at selected retailers around the country, and when you do I recommend you buy the lot. It is a mid-weight wine that somehow conveys a sense of rocky energy. 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 identi Learn More

    "Grenache (55%), Shiraz (35%) and Mataro (10%). They do a lovely job of this blend, year in, year out. "Ah delicious. Lovely bright red Grenache fruit with raspberry and a little sandy edge. Really vibrant, presents the brightness of a Grenache dominant style, with just a little more acid bite this year. Again an absolute winner. So cheap for the absolute quality. Best drinking: 2017-2025. 17.7/20, 92/100. 14.5%, $29 (and available for much less if you shop around). Would I buy it? In a flash. "Andrew Graham Oz Wine Review Learn More

    Turkey Flat Rose 2017

    Regular Price: $21.50

    Special Price: $20.99

    As low as: $19.99
    Unashamedly bright and exuberant, our 2015 Rosé is classically Turkey Flat. The bouquet is packed with strawberry, raspberry and a hint of cherry. A palate full of well rounded, luscious fruit is delicately laced with a suggestion of spice. Complete with a fresh, persistent finish perfect for a light meal or a long summer's day. Learn More

    Woodlands Cabernet Merlot 2015

    Regular Price: $28.50

    Special Price: $26.50

    As low as: $25.00
    Very good Cabernet at a fair price. Blackberry and dark chocolate, a little dusty cedar oak, mint and tobacco. Medium bodied, cool, calm and composed, rich with dark fruits mainly (some red) and savoury flavour, but light on its feet. Gentle drag of tannin, fine acidity, and a grainy and gently sappy finish of excellent length. You’re laughing here."  Learn More
