  1. Yelland & Papps Second Take Shiraz 2016

    Yelland & Papps Second Take Shiraz 2016
    94/100 - Steve Leszcynski - Qwine Michael Papps was pretty happy with the way this came together when we had a chat about his new release Second Take wines. Give it a chance to breathe and you'll see what he means. Unfiltered and unfined, there's 65% whole bunch Shiraz here which saw 11 days on skins and nine months in French oak (29% new). 2900 produced. Lean forward and embrace the funk. Red berries, pan juices, purple flower aromas. Dark berry fruit assume control in the mouth. And then Mulberry compote comes to mind - similar to the one my grandmother used to mak Learn More

  2. Yelland & Papps Second Take Mataro 2016

    Yelland & Papps Second Take Mataro 2016
    Wine Companion tasting note. By: 2029 Price: $40.00 Date Tasted: 31 Mar 2017 Alcohol: 13.8% Hand-picked, 73% whole bunches, 17 days on skins, matured for 9 months in French oak (23% new), like all the Yelland and Papps red wines, not filtered or fined. Light, faintly turbid red; the savoury/earthy nature of mataro is resistant to change, but it gains a narrow margin here.94 points James Halliday Learn More

    95 points Halliday Wine Companion: 'From bush vines planted in ‘46, 50% whole-berries, wild yeast and kept on lees in used French oak for 10 months. So fragrant it's breathtaking. To start, a whirl of perfectly ripe raspberries and red currants, patchouli and subtle Middle Eastern spices. The palate is tightly wound, with raspberry-like acidity, more pronounced tannins in the background. They'll meet up in time. Drink by 2029' (Halliday Wine Companion 2018) 93 points James Suckling: 'A savory and tangy red with hints of blueberries, meat and cloves. Medium to fu Learn More

    As low as: $26.99
    The Yangarra GSM is a careful blending of grenache, shiraz and mourvèdre. Bright and perfumed with chewy earth and spice characters, this is a fine example of what an evenly spread palate tastes like. A wine with a backbone of old bush vine Grenache planted in the 1940’s. This wine will continue to evolve with cellaring, but can also be enjoyed in its youth alongside barbequed meats. Learn More

    A very attractive pale dark pink. Has gorgeous cherry fruit aromas with light floral notes. Has delicate, fresh cherry fruit flavours on the palate with a hint of spice and savoury characters. This wine has a beautiful palate weight and great mouth feel; it has a lovely textural quality while still having a dry finish with the tiniest hint of tannin astringency. Like the Roses from Provence in the south of France, this is a superb wine that can be enjoyed on its own but is definitely good to serve with food. Learn More

    James Halliday on the 2016 Butchers Block Red "A shiraz/grenache/mourvedre blend, part sourced from some of the oldest (1865) vines on the Turkey Flat vineyard. Excellent colour; a warm and spicy bouquet introduces a medium-bodied palate with red and black berries, plus good mouthfeel and length. Oak plays little or no part in framing the palate, fine tannins doing the trick. 94 points" Learn More

    The great undervalued variety of Mataro, a Spanish synonym widely used in the Barossa for the French variety Mourvedre, has long held a fascination for Tim Smith. In the great years, viz 2009/2010, TSW Mataro has the classic varietal aromas of Chinese-5-spice, liquorice and dark berry fruits. The palate is at once spicy, with lively defining tannins due to being picked at exactly the right time and being under the deft hand of Tim Smith once in the winery…vineyard age is typically 50+ years and usually up to four vineyard selections make the final blend.   Learn More

    Toni Paterson MW 94 Points There is something very satisfying about Barossa red, with all its generosity and lusciousness, and Tim Smith makes an excellent modern example. It is soft and opulent, chocolatey and plummy, but there’s also great lift and vibrancy, with hints of rose, redcurrants and spice. The tannins are plentiful, yet ripe and integrated, and there is excellent flavour progression through the length of the palate. Very well-made and delicious. The Real Review, 05 April 2017 Learn More

    Deep red. Heady aromas of strawberry and kirsch. The strawberry component is a result of whole bunch fermentation with the Grenache component. Spicy and layered, the medium bodied palate has earthy Mataro richness and length. Fruit flavours are in the dried fig spectrum. Soft, mature and savoury skin tannins define the finish.   Learn More

Complex and long with a chalky finish. Rating 96 points James HallidayA whole berry wild ferment, matured in used French oak for 15 months. Its deep, dense colour translates into a deep, dense, velvety palate of exceptional quality.

    "This is from 70 year old dry-grown bush vines on Seaview Road, some whole bunch, and old French oak. Super.Lovely dried rose and herb perfume and spice, ripe raspberry, rhubarb crumble. Medium bodied, juicy but with some earth and dried herb, lovely fine emery board tannin, balanced acidity, and that fine brush of tannin cleaning up the finish. This is very good Grenache, and beautifully made too.Rated : 93 Points Winefront Learn More

    I can’t recall where the old vine single vineyard is, but let’s just assume it’s somewhere nice. Spice with a distinct top note of shrubbery and stalk, some floral notes, juicy cherry and raspberry flavour. Medium bodied, attractive grainy tannin and balanced acidity keeps it all trim, and the finish is firm, long and punctuated with a pleasant twist of stalkiness. Certainly has some of that Pinot Noir of the Barossa about it, which is nice. Winefront.com.au Rated : 93 Points Learn More

    100% Cabernet Franc, hand harvested from organically tended vines planted on the gravelly shale soil of western Anjou-just across the river from Savennières. The idea here is for a fun, lively, no-nonsense 'vin de soif', made to be enjoyed young while vibrant and fresh. To this end the fruit is fully destemmed and then simply fermented/raised in stainless steel for just six months. This leaps out the glass with freshly picked berries, dried herbs and smoky graphite notes. The palate is crunchy- Learn More

    "Some wines just hit the nail square on. This is one such wine. It’s both fresh and textural, lively and substantial enough. You taste it and think: yes. It flows where it needs to, gathers where it must, persists when it’s all on the line. There’s quite a deal of fine-grained tannin and yet its dryness never interrupts the argument in favour of the wine’s quality, or its drinkability. It gives light- to medium-bodied red wine a good name." Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    Invariably a good wine, and invariably better than the ever-popular Riebke Shiraz. "You can count on it. It’s reliably good. Blackberry, plum, anise and leather flavours run amiably through the palate. It’s warm and rich-enough with a minerally, smoky, spicy finish. It won’t bowl anyone over with its quality but it will please most red wine lovers. Lots of flavour, and some character too. Rated : 91 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    Attractive rich red hue with a dark core. Earthy and deeply spiced the Dog Strangler is saturated with deep, ripe dark plum and mulberry fruits with a hint of red cherry lift. Plenty of lavender, dried rosemary, hung game-meats, musk and white pepper. The palate is well weighted with plenty of texture and fruit flavour’s of ripe, plum, blackfruit’s, mulberry and cherry. As to be expected there are the rich savoury and spicy aspects that we love from this variety in abundance. Nutmeg, Dutch licorice and a great earthy weight.

    Fine and polished nose - floral, figgy and gently meaty, it's a delicate and perfectly varietal expression of Monastrell. Soft, wide tannins start the mouth off and a long rip of ripe acid in the back half really straightens things out. Almuvedre has long been one of the bargain wines of the world and the style-quality-value amalgam continues to boggle the mind. Now in screwcap! Learn More

    Wine worth crowing about. Mountain herbs, graphite, peppercorn and spice notes come at least in lock-step, if not ahead of, blackberry and plum, leather and earth flavours. It’s different, in a good way. It’s fresh and complex, more-ish and highly engaging. Weight doesn’t really come into it but there’s more than enough here.

    Ultimately this a triumph of a wine. Exactly what you’d want for young Grenache, with this impossible red fruit plumpness, the alcohol not excessive, the tannins welcome. It’s not meant to be a wine for the long term, but it’s got the guts to be convincing. Win. Best drinking: Now to ten years. 18/20, 93/100. 13.8%, $35. Would I buy it?

     Winemaker Steve Pannell talks a very interesting and relevant line about making wines that suit Australia’s ‘food culture’. His gist is that wine in Australia often forgets to be relevant to what we eat, and that wines produced from wine regions often miss cues from climate and resources in the growing areas. I tend to agree. This isn’t just about that weird, miscued term ‘food wine’, it’s about understanding what our broad brushstrokes of food totems are, and thinking about wines that match.

    The nose shows concentrated red fruit characters, strawberry, red liquorice, cherry primary fruit aromas mixed with fennel seed and black liquorice notes from Shiraz, completed by spicy, cinnamon, allspice notes, creates vibrant concentrated primary fruit aromatics with subtle spice and savoury notes adding to complexity. The wine is full and broad on the palate with juicy red fruit character up front, and the finish is firm due to fine-grained, dusty tannins which add length and complexity from the spicy/savoury notes of Shiraz and Touriga.
