  1.  Penny's Hill 'The Experiment' Grenache 2017

    Penny's Hill 'The Experiment' Grenache 2017

    Regular Price: $37.50

    Special Price: $35.00

    As low as: $34.99
    Old vine Grenache matured in old (or older) French oak. 20% whole bunches. Production is 258 dozen. It’s become a grenache worth following. It’s good every year now. This gets the balance of sweet fruit, savoury herb and woodsy spice notes just right. If there’s oak it’s barely noticeable; if there’s warmth it’s complementary. Tannin, earth-shot, has just enough grunt to it as well. Nice one. Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    Mike Bennie - The Wine Front - 91 points Intense kind of wine but geez it feels good to drink. It’s heady in dark fruit, prune, cinnamon, cola and anise scents. The palate is a punchy wash of dark fruits, kirsch, faint herbs. It’s juicy but has pops of bright acidity through it, making it feel a touch wild, but also, supremely refreshing as a red. Do you like medium weight, spicy-feeling reds with some oomph? Here ya go. C Learn More

    "Skeletal, transparent nebbiolo of savouriness, muted nature and yet good drinkability. The perfume is reduced in volume, showing dried rose petal, dried cranberry, puffs of clove, a waft of miscellaneous pot pourri. It’s set to dry and chalky texture, imbued with that sense of concentration of dried cranberries, but with that gentle, sweet, dried fruit richness too, and, importantly, the peaky, perky acidity that comes with that fruit. It sits tight and squeaky in the palate, mouthwatering at its conclusion. It’s a wine to spend some time with Learn More

    Massimo's Langhe Nebbiolo offers a fragrant and perfumed expression of Nebbiolo from Monforte. For Langhe Nebbiolo this is seriously structured with complexity that is not normally seen at this price point. Campbell Mattinson commented on the 2016 vintage in this wine by saying 'Nebbiolo producers all over the world would probably prefer that you didn’t see this wine. If you’re of a Nebbiolo kind of mind, this is about as exquisite as value gets. Given that it retails for $30 this is almost ridiculously good. Every itch is scratched, every promise fulfilled.

    96 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday “Bondar’s aim is to produce bright, pretty Grenache, largely by earlier picking – which was easy in the cool ’17 vintage, but more difficult in ’18. A raspberry, cherry-accented bouquet, the palate following suit. Its overall freshness is exceptional” – 96 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday Learn More

    Wine Advocate 94 points - The 2017 Cote de Brouilly is superb, unfurling in the glass with aromas of ripe cassis, candied violets and plums. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated, structured around fine-grained but chewy tannins and tangy balancing acids, with considerable depth and substance at the core. The wine is still quite primary and will need some time to come together, but it’s an excellent rendition of this storied cuvee that resembles the 2011 vintage. (Sep 201 Learn More

Medium-bodied, but rich and plump,  sweet tannin, succulence and flavour, bright and so yum. A little ‘mineral’ feel too. Length is excellent. Flat out delicious.

    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

    Bernard and Entav clones, and really, it’s Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (lately Merlot) where (some) people care about clonal make-up. Fine feeling wine, with lovely chalky texture, cool acidity, and heaps good length. Flavours fall to citrus and white peach, oak is pretty discreet, with some raw almond and savoury flavours in the mix. Needs another few months to a year in bottle to show its best.

    "A new wine here, replacing the old Nouveau which contained Touriga and other things. Alex Head suggests that Monte is a great grape for the Barossa Valley – the honey badger of grape varieties. Raised in old foudre. Very purple, hazelnut, touch of meat and spice, boysenberry, blueberry. Medium-bodied, dry dusty firm tannin, savoury but with a core of jubey fruit. Some of the grapes character, but tastes regional too. Good drinking here, though I feel it will be better again with a little more time to settle into bottle. " Rated : 91 Points Wine Learn More

    Fragrantly scented, tightly structured and finely poised - this wine shows the more reserved, feminine face of the Barossa. Delicately portioned and beautifully balanced its fragrant notes of flowers, creme de cassis and blackberry are supported by an underlying swell of black pepper, cocoa and minerals. Supple, smooth, intense, balanced and very very long and without any hint of over ripeness, its ease of drinking and current enjoyment should not limit what is a very good cellaring future. Really classy and individual wine, such as should be made more often in the Barossa Valley. A be Learn More
