  1. Lamura Nero d'Avola DOC (full case buy only)

    Lamura Nero d'Avola DOC (full case buy only)

    Regular Price: $16.00

    Special Price: $14.99

    How much flavour can you expect from a red wine at this near rock bottom price? When it comes to nero d’Avola (the black grape of Avola, a town in eastern Sicily, and the island’s most widely planted variety), the answer is far more than you might expect. Sealed with a screwcap and from a good vintage, the Lamura may be made in big volumes, but it is exactly the type of spicy, soft-tannined Mediterranean red that shows the promise of modern Sicilian vino. The palate is fresh, clean, fruit driven and dry

  2. Head Wines ‘NOUVEAU’ Touriga Montepulciano Grenache 2014

    Head Wines ‘NOUVEAU’ Touriga Montepulciano Grenache 2014

    Regular Price: $20.00

    Special Price: $19.00

    As low as: $18.00

     60% Touriga Nacional and 40% Montepulciano, from Marananga. And why not? Last year’s model was great.


    Earthy, meaty and spicy, sour cherries and chocolate, floral high tones, then that metallic thing that you (I) seem to get in Touriga which runs through the palate. Light to medium bodied, juicy and meaty at once, light tannin, refreshingly bitter flavours – quinine and amaro herbs – and a juicy sour cherry finish of decent length. Lovely to drink. 
    Fascination and quaffing level enjoyment at once. Recommended. 91 points Winefront.com.au

    mulberry flavours provide the fruit backbone along with hints of Asian spice, licorice, frangipani, almond paste and earth. It treads a focussed line with bright, sapid acidity and drive throughout its length.
    A curtain of gentle ripe chalky tannin wraps up the proceeding as the wine trails off showing fine acidity and spicy red fruits. Delicious.

    “Always enjoy the wines from Tim Smith, and could you have a more modest name than Tim Smith? Two syllables. It’s pretty much business as usual for Tim Smith Shiraz here, so if you’ve liked the past few vintages, then no surprises here. Blackberry, chocolate, vanilla nougat, spicy biscuits etc. Medium to full bodied, deep flavour, firm grainy tannin and well balanced acidity, then mixed dark berries, vanilla and Barossa coal run through to a long and tannic finish. Textbook. Likely a little more to come over the next few years.”- 93+ points Gary Walsh.

     

    "Matured on fine yeast lees in mostly French oak; sourced from 10 vineyards, the oldest 130 years; part Barossa Valley, part Eden Valley. Made with great skill, this is a seriously good wine, awash with black fruits, licorice and 
    fine, brambly tannins; the balance and length are perfect, the oak fully integrated" - 96 Points James Halliday

    Tim Smith Wines Barossa Mataro Grenache Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $26.50

    Special Price: $25.00

    As low as: $24.00

    “Chocolate sauce, floral perfume, crack of black pepper, berry compote, almost a sea spray character. ..... but is mercifully not sweet. Goes all dried herb perfume on the finish, with a chomp of tannin to bring it in tight. Gee, this is really very good.” - 94+pts Gary Walsh
    "Tim Smith has this blend working far in his (and therefore drinkers') favour. It's become a house specialty. This is a rich, generous release, chock-a-block with ripe black berries, chocolatey oak, cracked pepper and assorted roasted nut flavours. It's dense but bright and spicy; it lifts from the glass but then sinks deep into all corners of the mouth. A standout." - 95pts James Halliday

    ...... black Russian tomatoes steaming on the toast, dribbling beneath a shiny port and cream reduction, black pepper everywhere. This makes surrender a delight. It’s a third the price of a good Bandol, and a tiny fraction of the cost of that air ticket.
    Be quick! Sublime in as many ways as I can think, and believe me, my sodden old brain has spread so wide it’s dribbling off the edges of the plate.

    Bright plum red; the nose has a soft red fruit fragrance - there's a reference on the back label to 'pink marshmallow' which I think is great. Sappy, dry palate is framed with tannins - bitter, mouth-cleansing, proper tannins. Complement that with some cherry red fruit late juiciness and you've got frankly one utterly delicious, dry and savoury red. Those tannins are perhaps just a little too bitter, but gee it makes for a refreshing and vital one.
    Massive yes. Drink 2015-2025+. 18/20, 93/100
    Details: 12.6%, Screwcap, $27, Sample
    Would I buy it? Yes. I'd need something meaty, but I'd smash a half bottle." Andrew Graham OzWineReview

    Meaty, smoky approach. Clean and savoury yet hit with good fruit too. Dry licorice. Spicy finish. Clean, unforced, tangy length. Brilliant value, all things considered. You could take this anywhere. And that, really, is the raison d’etre of this brand. 88 points WInefront.com.au
