  1. Cirillo Estate the Vincent Grenache 2016

    Cirillo Estate the Vincent Grenache 2016

    Regular Price: $22.99

    Special Price: $21.50

    As low as: $20.50
    96 Points. A concentrated and deeply flavoursome Grenache from the sandy Vine Vale soils, this has attractive spicy red and purple berry fruits with some gently stony, almost flinty edges and hints of wild roasting herbs. The palate's beautifully fresh and lithe, really nicely honed in terms of tannin, and vibrant and succulent. Red-plum and dark-cherry flavours snap fresh through the finish. Superb wine. Drink now and for 10+ years."- Nick Stock, jamesuckling.com. 96 points Learn More

    West Cape Howe Cape to Cape Rose 2017

    Regular Price: $18.50

    Special Price: $17.99

    As low as: $17.00
    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

    Really good. Varietal warm bitumen/dried fig/honey/black fruit Monastrell, with a juicy-jubey touch up from Syrah. Very silky with decent length and a nice tapered palate to a finish where the fruit tannins live. Learn More

    Special Price: $17.50

    As low as: $17.00
    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

    Sam Kim, Wine Orbit: 93 points - A classic Rioja showing fabulous modern fruit intensity, the complex bouquet shows dark berry, game, mixed spice and nutmeg characters, which lead to a ripe and smooth palate that delivers plenty of appealing flavours and excellent mid palate weight. The wine is supple and generous while remaining elegant and stylish. At its best now until 2018 Learn More

    .....Every itch is scratched, every promise fulfilled. It’s tense, perfumed, earthen, licorice-like, scribbled with fine-point tannin and persistent enough to made each swig feel like a journey. It’s a wine of finer details, no broad strokes allowed, no generalisations. It’s devilishly good. Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    There's a sense of extra generosity and ripeness in this release. Beautiful perfume, draws you into the glass, one to sniff on long and with pleasure. Rose hip tea, raspberry, pot pourri, sandalwood. More roses than tar. It's a succulent wine, mouthwatering in acidity, floods the palate with sweet-ripe berry fruit flavours, exits with a lingering build of bergamot tea-like tannin. Just over medium weight. Luxurious nebbiolo. Delicious." 95 points, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au 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

    This wine shows vibrant primary fruit flavours of plums, red berries and spices. Finishing soft and round with velvety smooth tannins. Malbec is rarely seen as a varietal wine but here at Bleasdale and in Langhorne Creek it stands on its own two feet and performs well enough to earn its stripes. Learn More

    Sicily can be such a happy hunting ground for wines that combine drinkability, interest and good value. There’s three ticks here. This is savoury and minerally, but lush with dark cherries, spice, floral top notes, and maybe a few of the old cheeky black jellybeans. Love the smooth silty tannin, pitch perfect acidity, and the light spiciness to finish. It’s only just medium bodied, almost delicate for a Nero, but gee this is good drinking. So sophisticated at the price.  Learn More

    The TURKEY FLAT “BUTCHERS BLOCK” 2015 SHIRAZ GRENACHE MATARO (Barossa Valley) is ready to drink and rearing to go. No, it is not a thin, watery wine. It has a beautiful depth of purple colour, a lovely brambly, rich Barossan-nose, and a smooth, elegant, mid-weight body that makes the palate go YUM! YUM! It is a gloriously well-balanced and structured wine that you can drink right now either on its own or with food – BUT wait, there’s more!!

    Dusty scents of earth, red berry on briar, cedar and game meats. Reserved, kind of serious perfume. Red currants, sweet-sour flavours, plush in texture but contained in architecture of dusty tannins and drawn long and tight across the palate to a cinched, puckering point. Like the medium bodied feel and tension here. Excellent.  93 points Mike Bennie Winefront.com.au Learn More

    Hand Picked | Wild Yeast | 15% Whole Bunch | Unfined Unfiltered Fruit source: Vine Vale, Bethany and Light Pass A wine that offers a great intensity in colour and a nose of black cherries and dark plum.

    "Grenache from Bethany and Marananga in the Barossa Valley. Wild fermented. 86% whole bunches. There’s a line of redcurrant and sweet raspberry, on both the nose and palate, but it quickly turns dry, smoky, almost sandy. This is an uncompromising style. Herb and spice notes, for sure, and a touch of dry licorice, but the prey, bunchy, simply dryness is the wine’s defining characteristic. It needs food as a result. But, in its style, it’s quite a lovely wine." Rated : 92+ Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    McLaren Vale winery Coriole was the first to plant sangiovese in Australia, and have a strong Italian connection to this day, with Barbera and Nebbiolo also in their range. This is my pick from the current releases, just ahead of the Barbera. There's leathery dark fruit, with some sour cherry and chocolate flavours. Good on its own but even better with food. Top value.

    "It's easy to see why barbera is Italy's most prominent red variety: this stuff makes you crave pasta. This is tight, unforgiving, very dry red, with powerful, persistent, fine-grained tannin that sets the whole mouth puckering for tucker. It is not, what you say, fruit driven, or juicy. But feed it pure spaghetti bolognaise, or paste with lots of black olive and fresh herbs, and you're away. It will cellar for a decade." Philip White - Adelaide Advertiser Learn More

    Buckboard Durif is inky purple-black in colour. There are captivating aromas of blackberry jam, dark plum, sweet spice, fruit cake and chocolate. The palate is rich and full-bodied. Black fruits dominate. Toasty oak is evident adding complexity. Tannins are solid adding a muscular backbone and dry finish to this generous wine.

    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

    "This is from younger vines in Serralunga (barolo). Different from other recently reviewed nebbs that were briefly 'aged' in stainless steel, this was matured in big oak for 18 months before bottling and is way more tertiary in its colour, aromas and flavours. As a result it presents more like a scaled-back barolo, with characters of earth, mineral and tar, with ever-present fragrant notes reinforcing the elegance. The resolved level of the fruit and tannins make this just as gluggable as its more primary contemporaries. And it went down a treat with pan-f Learn More

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.

The source is Coriole’s Blewitt Springs vineyard, not but the wine label is entirely separate. Nice to hear Duncan is back in the Coriole bosom after several years experience outside of the family winemaking fold. This is a wine that says ‘run, don’t walk’ to me. It’s a killer release. It’s also a blend of nero d’avola, mourvedre, carignan and shiraz. Spice Learn More

    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
