    93 points - "Small parcels from estate blocks vinified separately from start to finish in new and used French oak. Convincing colour, and at the heavyweight/top end of the malbec scale, with loads of earthy plum and black fruits; the fruit has swallowed the oak, and the tannins are in balance. Deserves time. 13.5% alc. To 2035." James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion 2016, 27 July 2015

    Reviews and Awards



    Grown mostly on 100 year old vines though some younger vines give it a hand.


    Both sturdy and pretty at once. Aniseed, raspberry, sand and loam flavours with a rusty, clovey edge. Feels structural and firm as it machines its way through the mouth. An earth wine with a flush of berried/floral fruit. Quality style, and wine. Rated : 93+ Points Tasted : Apr15 Alcohol : 14.5% Price : $29 Campbell Mattinson the Wine Front April 2015




    2013 Grenache - 'delicious delight'


    Tapping into one of the Barossa's great resources, vines that have been producing for a century, here dominating the fruit that goes into this simply juicy and delicious delight, smelling of fragrant fruit orchards, leaf, trunk and earth, with a soft, medium-weight, squelchy and generous cherry box set of flavours, subtle woods, gentle and generous red fruits. A sum of many regional elements. 4 stars Value: Tempting Tony Love, The Adelaide Advertiser Taste March 25 2015

    S.C. Pannell Dead End Tempranillo 2015

    Regular Price: $27.99

     100 % Tempranillo from the Koomilya & Sellicks Hill vineyards in McLaren Vale. The must was traditionally vinified in small open-top fermenters for 10 days. Aged for seven months in large format French and Hungarian oak vats and puncheons, 20% of which were new. This is highly perfumed, vibrant and complex with sweet black cherries, sarsaparilla, and good hints of exotic spice. A plush, light- to medium-bodied, juicy wine with leafy, dusty tannins on the finish.

    As low as: $25.00

    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

    .....It tastes like the future of Barossa Mataro. Just 1290 bottles produced.
    Dark maroon-purple, it's genuinely fragrant - which is revelatory for dour old Barossa Mataro - with the spicy whole bunch fruit giving a whole new sexy edge. There's a lightness and freshness of black fruit, tilled earth and fine tannins, if not quite the depth and length of a superstar. Gee this is much more approachable and lively than nearly any other Barossan Mataro though! Love the licoricey fruit and refreshing style.
    Yes. Yes yes yes.

    Special Price: $26.50

    As low as: $25.00

    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

    ..... the fragrant fruit totally delicious, tannin and oak ghosts behind that fruit. Full of promise. - 93 points James Halliday Wine Companion
    .....It's fresh, abounds with acidity and will have have you emptying your glass quicker than you can say: "by Jove, that's a tasty wine". Such great drinking. 93 points The Vinsomniac
    Winemaker Alex Shirrah fermented these whole berries in “small beeswax-lined vats”. Whatever he did worked magic. If these are typical of what Mark Lloyd is calling Coriole’s “New Australian Collection”, bring in those new Australians quick-smart. Nero d’Avola speaks no English; writes no latin. But it rocks. Give ’em a go." Phillip White

      2013 Butchers Block Red - 'Excellent value'


      48% Shiraz, 28% Grenache, 24% Mataro. Nice packaging. New I suspect, but I’m long out of touch with the goings on at Turkey Flat.


      Black fruits, sweet spices, new leather and earthy complexity, perhaps a mint and dried flower perfume. Medium bodied, but fleshy and smooth in the mouth, with very fine dense tannin, a mix of red and black fruit, all nicely spiced, then savoury finish of good length.
      Right in the slot. Excellent value. Gary Walsh The Wine Front March 2015

      Deep ruby, Lifted cherry and raspberry fruit, with a hint of orange peel. A soft round palate of berry fruit with refreshing acidity and a spicy finish

      Really lovely rose and dried herb perfume, spice, raspberry and cherry. It’s just medium bodied, with firm fine grained tannin, gently earthy savoury flavours playing with those high toned florals and red fruits. Pulls dry and grainy on the finish, but
      never loses its charm and high drinking appeal. 94 points Winefront.com.au"

      Dense and brooding with delicate notes of black cherries and brambly fruits the moonlight run has already proven itself a favourite during the cool Autumn evenings. Gentle and very approachable with underlying flavours of black cherries, gamy Grenache flavours, wild berries with a back bone of Mataro tannins, this vintage is truly a step up from previous releases.

      The nose displays a core of deep, brooding dark berried fruit overlaid with lifted notes of wild forest and exotic spice. The palate shows a core of blue fruits and blood plums matched by the licorice, olive and wild spice of Mataro. The whole bunch character provides tension and detail to the long finish. A very complex and rewarding wines that is still approachable and fun to drink.Peak drinking from mid 2014 to 2024.

      Approachable and very enjoyable, and while it comes up in the glass beautifully, I don't think it's a cellaring style. 92 points Winefront.com.au

      James Halliday 95 Points
      A 49/29/22% blend of grenache, shiraz and mourvedre. Hand-picked, mechanically sorted, 50% whole berries, cold soak, open fermenters, plunged, wild yeast-fermented, kept on lees in 100% used French oak for 9 months. Brilliant hue; the wine effortlessly communicates its distinguished breeding, the medium-bodied palate with a silken line of fruit, then a thin coat of fine, savoury tannins. Drink By: 2028

      The nose is dark, dark brooding and somewhat wild. The palate likewise opens with a wall of fruit-driven flavour – a complex swirl of blackcurrant, plums, meat and exotic spice all balancing within a framework of whole bunch twang and graphite tannins. Bright acidity keeps the wine light on its feet. An exciting indication of what is possible in the Barossa Valley.

      The perfume gives you a hint, in a way, with cinnamon and earth-dusted ripe red fruit character and a hint of dried herbs. Ripe and generous as the fruit is, it's a compelling drink, layered in flavour and generous without being overbearing. It finishes with a dusty lick of pucker and a tickle of briny acidity. It's lovely to drink, but structurally is quite loose-knit.

      Mataro is not an easy variety to handle on its own, tending to be bolshie. Here a top site and experienced winemaking has harnessed its power, providing a full-bodied palate that is still well balanced, and sultry black fruits side-step the tannins with a little bit of help from the oak maturation.

      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.

      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.

      Very bright in colour with an attractive and pretty pale pink colour. Quite perfumed with strawberry fruit characters and delicious sweet cherry fruit aromatics. This is very much a dry Rose with the attractive, savoury fruit characters on the palate that are typical of the Tempranillo variety.
      It has great texture, good mouthfeel and a long finish. Being drier and less 'fruity' than many other Roses, it is a great food wine and would be well matched to a wide variety of foods.

      Perfumed with musk and roses, dusted with spice and cocoa, and full of fetching mixed red berry and red cherry flavour. Medium bodied, supple and mouth-filling, though light on its feet, acidity is fresh, and fine chalky tannin trails off on a long sweet and spicy finish. Drink now and over the next few years. It’s a great, and non-threatening, introduction to Northern Italian red wine."

      This is a primal, untamed expression of pure Nebbiolo fruit


      Dark cherry, liquorice, violet and dried rose perfume. Medium bodied, fleshy and ripe, with layers of meaty and silky tannin, clean acidity, and an almost bubblegum perfume in the aftertaste. It's good fun now, though I reckon it will be much better with a couple of years in the cellar to let it settle down. What a bargain!

      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."

      It’s good Barossa Shiraz with a little something extra for the weekend. Dark fruit, lavender, liquorice, spice and rosemary. Medium bodied, supple and almost juicy, but a bit brooding too, layered with spice and perfumed with sweet herbs. Tannin is well tuned and sits neatly inside the wine with a graphite feel, and the finish is long and shapely with something of a chicory aftertaste.
      It’s complex, interesting, and insanely good value.

      An ‘old world’ Spanish variety, Graciano is prized for its spiciness, acidity and tannin, and our 2015 delivers on all fronts. Lifted aromas of maple wood, baked rhubarb and sun dried tomato allure the senses. The surprisingly delicate palate is awash with bush pepper and vibrant acidity, finishing with fine, chalky tannins. A joven style, this vintage will cellar for around 5 years and will pair beautifully with cured meat and cheese boards, and for a treat, try it with toasted crostini topped with baked fig, Manchego cheese and caramelised shallots.

      A rich, dark and mellow Sicilian red with cherry and blueberry fruit, framed by cedar and gently spicy oak. Vibrant and juicy with good length.


      No review available yet, below is the review of the previous vintage, the 2014! I think the 2015is better, but not yet reviewed.


      "I picked up a bottle of this in a supermarket while on holiday. I’d not seen it before. It was one of those Japanese supermarkets where everything looked either exciting or frightening or both. Once spotted, I didn’t hesitate. Had no idea what an appropriate price is, or indeed what it’s quality would be like.


      If you see this in a shop anywhere; clear them out. It’s a beautiful, intriguing, tangy, sweet-but-serious wine at a snip of a price. Buy a dozen. Buy two. It’s rusty and redcurrranty, redolent of ripe raspberries, fractionally herbal and chalky but lively, scented, structured, the kit and the caboodle. It’s light and it’s lovely. $20-ish? I’m in." Rated : 92 Points Winefront.com.au
