    Regular Price: $80.00

    Special Price: $78.99

    As low as: $75.00
    "One of the best, young Etna wines I’ve seen. It’s guttural and savoury, earthy and yet sweet fruited, powered by clamping tannins and a swish of blood orange acidity. Impressive in its sweep across the palate it’s wildly, wonderfully perfumed with a mix of dark berries, briar, dark chocolate, warm stones, ash and alpine herbs. There’s depth in flavour too, no wallflower, but the freshness is all there. Velocity across the tongue, assertive, lip-smacking, then stains the palate with that gently f Learn More

    Babo Nero d' Avola 2013

    Regular Price: $24.50

    Special Price: $22.99

    As low as: $21.00
    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

    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

    West Cape Howe Cape to Cape Tempranillo Rose 2016

    Regular Price: $18.50

    Special Price: $17.99

    As low as: $17.00
    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. 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

    Telmo Rodriguez ‘Almuvedre’ Monastrell, DO Alicante

    Regular Price: $18.99

    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

    Regular Price: $33.00

    Special Price: $27.99

    As low as: $26.99
    It’s a very young and slightly raw wine, and while it’s probably meant to be enjoyed young, I’d either throw it into a decanter for a couple of hours, or pop it in the cellar for another couple of years: it makes a big difference. Anyway, as at now, it’s red fruited and perfumed, showing some sweet aniseed and spice, along with a whiff of new leather. Medium bodied, brightly lit and vibrant, with red cherry and red berry flavours, light chalky tannin, and a long gently sweet finish that’s perfum Learn More

    Special Price: $59.99

    3. Passopisciaro Etna Passorosso 2014 ($65) - The importer has already sold out of this fantastic wine from the fertile slopes of Sicily’s Mount Etna. However, you can still find it (in rapidly decreasing quantities) at selected retailers around the country, and when you do I recommend you buy the lot. It is a mid-weight wine that somehow conveys a sense of rocky energy. It has an exciting nose where strawberry and raspberry fruit are lifted by violet aromatics, and there are herbs, spices and the stony, rocky element that is hard to identi Learn More

    Regular Price: $28.00

    Special Price: $26.50

    "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

    Coriole Sangiovese 2015

    Regular Price: $28.00

    Special Price: $26.50

    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.

    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. 95 points James Halliday Learn More

    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" 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!!

    Barossa grenache to a tee. Sweet and ripe and yet earthen and spicy. Firm-ish with tannin. Raspberried, tarry, a touch of campfire, plenty of juice, some warmth. The way tannin surrounds the fruit and keeps it all controlled and neat adds a touch of class; it elevates it. It’s clearly very good. Rated : 92 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

     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.

    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

    "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

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.
