  1. Yelland & Papps Devote Shiraz Rousanne 2011

    Yelland & Papps Devote Shiraz Rousanne 2011
    $33.00

    $35; 13.5% alcohol; screw cap; 94+ points Phillip White - THIS wine just stole my tattered heart.
    My first taste of a Shiraz Roussanne blend came in the form of d’Arenberg’s The Wild Pixie 2008. This has an even larger Roussanne component of 15% and it’s actually the better wine  ...  Flagrantly floral and outrageously perfumed. Purple fruits, anise, pepper, raspberry and a whole cornucopia of other fragrances. The white grape influence is not only apparent on the nose but also the palate which is silky and slippery with fine, drying tannin. It’s a crazy ride but an enjoyable one just the same. If John Waters made a wine this would be it. 93 Very Good Wine Will Eat Itself

  2.  Torzi Matthews Old Vines Shiraz 1903 single vineyard of Domenico Martino 2012

    ($35; 14.2% alcohol; screw cap; 93++ points). Phillip White So what makes this better?  Start with its alarming purity of message.  It's a letter of love from one tiny patch of priceless heirloom Shiraz in the northern Barossa. It's disgusting in its brazen determination to seduce. Take all the fruits and aspects of the Longhop above, and dilute them about 5:1 in a deep simmer of mulberry and baby beetroot.  Smack your favourite schoolteacher's blackboard duster against the side of the glass to add some country.  Then think of black satin and silk, patent leather court shoes and Jean Deprez Bal à Versailles perfume.  Take a schlück, and you get the sense of iron as much as sinuous acid and flesh.  Sexy beast's packin' a heavy short, so you get those whiffs of gunblue and cordite just to warn you that you're in the dark alone with this one.  Good for duck or softer, creamy cheddar.  And still inexpensive.

    Regular Price: $43.99

    Special Price: $41.50

    As low as: $40.00

    From Stone Well. Note well. Two words Floral, silky, red and black fruits, light spice. Medium to full bodied, sweet vanilla cream and boysenberry, light fine grained tannin–lovely feel and texture–smooth and subtle with bright perky fruit and plenty of length. Love the super fine tannin that draws out the finish.
    Regular Blonde fanciers will not be disappointed. 93+ points Gary Walsh Winefront

    Head Wines the Brunette 2013

    Regular Price: $53.99

    Special Price: $51.50

    As low as: $50.00

    Dark chocolate, bit of earth and tar, extra dark spices, some mint and black fruit. Medium to full bodied, has some orange tang to the acidity, firmer more sticky tannin than the Blonde and a kind of beef jerky flavour in the mix. Finishes with a spray of dried herb. Looks a little jangly freshly opened, and certainly needs some more time in bottle, but it’s almost certain to improve.

    Head Wines the Blonde 2012 (375 mL)

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $22.00

    As low as: $21.00

    Distinctly peppery and stalky, vanilla and floral perfume, chocolate and black fruit – like a serious furrowed brow Pinot Noir! Medium to full bodied, pretty firm and tense in the mouth, not so slippery and seductive as previous releases; the blond has gone all librarian on us and means business. But let’s get down to business! Chocolate, vanilla and stalk with firm tannin on a long finish. Interesting. I like it. Stamp my card. 95 points Winefront.com.au

  3. Willow Bridge Solana Tempranillo 2012

    Willow Bridge Solana Tempranillo 2012

    Regular Price: $28.00

    Special Price: $24.99

    I must add as a post script, that I thought this wine was about $45, rather than $30. This means that you should buy some! I should too! Excellent – Outstanding / 94 points Sealed With Wax
    Matured in used French oak, this is a cut above many tempranillos, with superfine tannins running through its mix of red and black cherry fruits providing excellent texture, structure and length. 94 points James Halliday

    Maretti Langhe Rosso 2012

    Regular Price: $21.50

    Special Price: $19.99

    As low as: $18.00

    ... It really needs a couple of years at least to show itself properly. It tastes of peanut shells, dark cherries, leather, anise, chinotto, various dried herbs. It’s juicy and well balanced but stern and tannic through the finish. I wasn’t sure at first; when I came back a couple of hours later, I was certain. This is fabulous value. And, given some time, will be terrific drinking. 91+ points WInefront.com.au

    SC Pannell Arido Nebbiolo Rose 2013

    Regular Price: $24.99

    Special Price: $23.00

    As low as: $22.00

    Stephen Pannell’s move to Nebbiolo as the variety employed for his Rosé continues to pay dividends in its second year ...  Summer pudding, pippy cherries, blood orange, roses and whispers of watermelon. Love the texture and spice, love that it has a little body, love the citrusy cut and the deft, minimalist use of fine, nuanced phenolics. Love the wine. Persistent little bugger too. 93 Wine Will Eat Itself
    The best, most food friendly 2013 Rose I've tried! My summer Rose of choice ... its superb drinking! - Gavin Trott

    Regular Price: $20.00

    Special Price: $18.50

    Bright purple colours with a light to medium body. The nose shows pretty florals of rose petals, violets and fresh cherries that carry onto the palate. Finishes bright and long with sweet red fruits, fresh acidity and Beaujolais’ trademark crunchy tannins. 12.5% alcohol and about as juicy and fresh as you can get. Light-weight bottle, Low extract, low sulphur, low alcohol. Try on its own or delicious with Mediterranean foods. Think 'NOUVEAU' this Summer. Chilled....Just Delicious!
