    Tasted this with a few people last night, from novice to seasoned taster, and they all just loved it. Importer: Mondo Imports Rich, almost liquorice scented, sweetness of cherry fruit, mint, suede, and a touch of balsamic. 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 is cracking value, and a wonderful drink. Rated : 94 Points W 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

    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

    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

    West Cape Howe Cape to Cape Rose 2017

    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

    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

    "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

    "They do wonderful work with Sangiovese at Coriole. I’m tasting this alongside a few other Sangiovese, including a Brunello. An excellent release. It’s fresh but dense, cherry and hazelnut with a spray of dried herb, lovely bright flavour, a bit of chewy tannin, clean acidity, and a long fresh and savoury finish, that tannin cleaning up nicely. It’s classic Sangiovese, with a McLaren Vale twist. " Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    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?

    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. Refreshing feel to it just puts another tick on the positive side of the ledger." Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au 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

Hallowed turf; gentle winemaking. Oak presence negligible compared to many on the Mountain – concrete tanks, natural ferment, no fining or filtering here.   "One of the best, young Etna wines I’ve seen. Learn More

    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.

    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

    "Single vineyard. Made by Purple Hands. Blend of shiraz, montepulciano and aglianico. All French oak, most of it old. Bowled over by balance. It’s bold with flavour but everything here feels so well placed. It tastes of licorice, redcurrant, black cherries and peppery herbs, and while there’s a velvety/creaminess to the texture oak is not a major flavour contributor. Tannin spreads and runs through a good deal of the wine, almost always a good sign. 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

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

    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.

    "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

    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
