  1.   Elefante La Mancha Tempranillo Shiraz

    Elefante La Mancha Tempranillo Shiraz

    Regular Price: $13.99

    Special Price: $12.99

    As low as: $12.50

    Price-wise this bats against the standard-issue Koonunga Shiraz; it would be easy to argue that it gives it a fair touch up. Distinctive peanut shell-like aftertaste. Bang on for drinkability. Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front
    Wine of the Week - The economic reality is that many other countries can produce good wines more cheaply than we can in Australia. This is a case in point: a terrific savoury quaffing Spanish red blend that won't break the bank.‘Wine of the Week’ Winsor Dobbin.a good mix between savoury and sweet too, with a .. good deal of Tempranillo to pan out the structure. It’s as generous as a paella pan overflowing with flavour, has a silky red fruit palate and some dried herb character. Ends with keen acids that keep it perky but it’s the smooth tannins that impress making for a seamless drink at the price. Patrick Haddock; Wining Pom

    Unusually savoury too. That's really really good. Slight balsamic notes add piquancy and edge, but don't necessarily intrude, though I'd rather they were not there. So much character and life to this wine.  94 points Winefront.com.au
    Sophisticated architecture. Oak is a minor player, contributing to the texture but never obstructing the fruit. There’s a joie de vivre about the whole affair which is just impossible to deny. Longevity is pretty much assured. 94+ Excellent

    ($35; 14.2% alcohol; screw cap; 93++ points). Phillip White So what makes this better?  Start with its alarming purity of message.  It's a letter of love from one tiny patch of priceless heirloom Shiraz in the northern Barossa. It's disgusting in its brazen determination to seduce. Take all the fruits and aspects of the Longhop above, and dilute them about 5:1 in a deep simmer of mulberry and baby beetroot.  Smack your favourite schoolteacher's blackboard duster against the side of the glass to add some country.  Then think of black satin and silk, patent leather court shoes and Jean Deprez Bal à Versailles perfume.  Take a schlück, and you get the sense of iron as much as sinuous acid and flesh.  Sexy beast's packin' a heavy short, so you get those whiffs of gunblue and cordite just to warn you that you're in the dark alone with this one.  Good for duck or softer, creamy cheddar.  And still inexpensive.

    Special Price: $30.00

    As low as: $29.00

    .....Bright crimson-purple; has absorbed the oak while preserving the cassis fruits and softening the tannins; good length and balance. Drink to 2027." 94 points James Halliday, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2015, 1 August 2014
    ..... Langhorne fruit exuberance, all blackberried and blueberried, but with grainy, smoky, gum leafy tannin keeping it firm and strict and proper. Full-bodied but not overdone. Sound, fruit-filled length. Oak as a complement but not in an overt and dominant manner. Will keep developing in the cellar over a good number of years. 93+ points Winefront

    Special Price: $38.99

    Deep purple-crimson, it is sourced from two estate blocks and one local grower .... the best selected for this wine. 14% alc; screwcap 95 points James Halliday Weekend Australian
    .....This wine needs a huge sleep in a dark place to build on that already noticable complexity, to soften out and round off those tannins, and to let that coiled up power and intensity, uncoil. Seriously, the BEST Australian Malbec wine I have ever tried, and a cellar special ... a special wine this one. - Gavin Trott

  3. Bodega Catena Zapata Alamos Malbec

    Bodega Catena Zapata Alamos Malbec

    Regular Price: $18.00

    Special Price: $16.50

    The Catena Zapata Malbec shows a saturated dark violet color; the nose offers cassis, mocha and clove, along with a strong suggestion of soil tones. It combines density and sweetness on the one hand, with gripping flavors of tobacco, dark berries, spices and minerals; a palate-staining finish dominated by sweet black and blue fruits.
