    Bera Moscato d'Asti Vittorio

    Regular Price: $27.00

    Special Price: $25.99

    As low as: $24.99
    from Jancis Robinson This Asti takes me to summer, even on this cold, gloomy day. It's jasmine, frangipani, old-fashioned roses, dianthus; it's honeyed (you're talking pale-gold spring-blossom honey), it's apple nectar, it's a nip of ginger root in syrup and a pin prick of clove. Tiny, tiny bubbles just prickle the mouth and get all that residual sugar into a congo-dancing line. It turns into poached oranges and pears as it draws to a close. Learn More

    Corymbia Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

    Regular Price: $64.00

    Special Price: $55.99

    As low as: $53.00
    "Tannin. The final frontier for Australian wine, and here we boldly go. Split infinitives and superlatives to surely follow. Blackcurrant, dried herbs, nori, flowers. Medium-bodied, ample fruit, but dry and controlled, rolls of deep earthy and gravelly tannin, savoury flavours in the main, and a long finish, freshened with raspberry pip acidity. Beautiful expression of Cabernet here. " Rated : 96 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    Cherry, black raspberry, blackberry and herbs, rosy perfume. Big flavour, quite fruity, as such, very fine dense tannin, a touch of warmth, lots of that beautiful mineral stuff, and a very good finish. Nice. 94 points Winefront.com.au Learn More

  1. Toolangi Estate Pauls Lane Chardonnay 2018

    Toolangi Estate Pauls Lane Chardonnay 2018

    Regular Price: $43.99

    Special Price: $39.99

    As low as: $38.00
    Superb chardonnay. Straw-yellow in colour, flinty, powerful of fruit and glorious through the finish. It tastes of white peach, toffee-coated custard apples, oatmeal and smoke-drifted cedarwood, and while it’s tight through the finish the flavours someone manage to reach on through. It remains fresh, steely and refreshing and yet it offers so much. Yes, yes and yes. .... Learn More

  2. 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

  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

    Regular Price: $26.50

    Special Price: $24.50

    As low as: $23.50
    97 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday This elegant and complex Shiraz has lifted aromatics of raspberry, blueberry, dark plum and hints of vanilla spice. The palate has an abundance of blackberry, dark red fruits and notes of dark chocolate. Tannins are rich and silky, the length is long and luxurious. An outstanding accompaniment to beef with black bean sauce or truffle pasta as a vegetarian option. Learn More

    Sons of Eden Kennedy GSM 2017

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $24.50

    As low as: $23.00
    "I tasted through a range of Sons of Eden current/new releases recently and this wine stood out. I tasted them without knowing the asking prices and so I was surprised/delighted to find that this was also about the most affordable of them. Some days you have a win. What I like about this is that it’s both robust and svelte. It tastes of blackberry, kirsch, anise and dark leather and at every point along the flow of the palate it feels convincing. " Learn More

  3. Hoddles Creek Estate PSB Pinot Noir 2018

    Hoddles Creek Estate PSB Pinot Noir 2018
    $60.00
    "A single vineyard wine, close planted to Pommard and MV6 clones. I liked it from first sniff. Cherry, spice, subtle biscuit oak, a distinct sweet earth/mineral thing happening, and some dried herbs and flowers. Medium-bodied, good amount of flavour, particularly impressive tannin – fine, thick and graphite – pulls the ripcord of juicy acidity on the long finish. Complex. Composed. Cracking. My kind of Pinot Noir." Rated : 95+ Points   Gary @Winefront Learn More

  1. Hoddles Creek Syberia Chardonnay 2017

    Hoddles Creek Syberia Chardonnay 2017
    $60.00
    "Well, I ordered six bottles just now. Inside information, and all that. Struck match, lime, grapefruit, almonds, chicken stock, flickers of cool green. Fine and composed, surges through the mouth, grips on tight, and doesn’t let go. So long. Flint, chalk, crunch, texture, subtle bitterness. It’s all here. It’s very Adult Chardonnay. Racy. A nudge and wink to those in-the-know. Outstanding. Rated : 97 Points Gary @Winefront.com.au Learn More
