  1. Tim Smith Wines Barossa Mataro Grenache Shiraz 2013

    Tim Smith Wines Barossa Mataro Grenache Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $26.50

    Special Price: $23.85

    “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

  2. Head Wines the Brunette 2013

    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.
    93+ points Gary Walsh Winefront.

    Head Wines the Blonde 2013

    Regular Price: $43.99

    Special Price: $41.50

    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

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

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

    Regular Price: $35.00

    Special Price: $32.50

    As low as: $30.00

    ($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.

  2. Massena Tannat 2012

    Massena Tannat 2012

    Regular Price: $26.99

    Special Price: $25.50

    As low as: $25.00

    An impenetrable bright purple colour that stains the glass gives the impression of intensity and purity and the wine doesn’t let us down. The nose has slight briary and leafy hints before a rush of fresh raspberries fills the nose. Chewy, but supple tannins backed with dense blackberry flavours ensure a gob full of flavour.

  3. Massena Primitivo 2013

    Massena Primitivo 2013

    Regular Price: $26.99

    Special Price: $24.29

    As low as: $24.00

    In California, the best primitivos are made by those who learn how to correctly gauge the ripeness of the fruit, for berries on the same bunch can range from green to black. The Massena team has judged this to perfection, the perfumed bouquet leading into a palate with red fruits to the fore, 
    black fruits on the back-palate, and silky tannins on the finish. 96 points James Halliday

  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. Bodega Catena Zapata Alamos Malbec

    Bodega Catena Zapata Alamos Malbec

    Regular Price: $18.00

    Special Price: $16.50

    The Catena Zapata Malbec shows a saturated dark violet color; the nose offers cassis, mocha and clove, along with a strong suggestion of soil tones. It combines density and sweetness on the one hand, with gripping flavors of tobacco, dark berries, spices and minerals; a palate-staining finish dominated by sweet black and blue fruits.

  3. Bodega Zapata Catena Malbec

    Bodega Zapata Catena Malbec

    Regular Price: $26.00

    Special Price: $24.50

    A blend of four vineyards - vineyards are divided into lots that are harvested at different times. Ripe plum fruit flavors and silky texture. Dark fruit character, dense mid-palate and pepper notes. Black cherry aromas and excellent structure. Explosive floral aromatics and full, concentrated mouthfeel.
    International Wine Cellar -  91 points - Bright red-ruby. Raspberry, licorice and fig aromas lifted by sexy oak tones. Vinous and refined on the palate, with dark raspberry, currant and fig flavors complicated by a saline nuance. Nicely balanced and not at all overly sweet. ... Finishes with firm, fine, building tannins and excellent length.
