    "This is from 70 year old dry-grown bush vines on Seaview Road, some whole bunch, and old French oak. Super.Lovely dried rose and herb perfume and spice, ripe raspberry, rhubarb crumble. Medium bodied, juicy but with some earth and dried herb, lovely fine emery board tannin, balanced acidity, and that fine brush of tannin cleaning up the finish. This is very good Grenache, and beautifully made too.Rated : 93 Points Winefront Learn More

    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!  Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    Yelland & Papps Second Take Mataro 2016
    Wine Companion tasting note. By: 2029 Price: $40.00 Date Tasted: 31 Mar 2017 Alcohol: 13.8% Hand-picked, 73% whole bunches, 17 days on skins, matured for 9 months in French oak (23% new), like all the Yelland and Papps red wines, not filtered or fined. Light, faintly turbid red; the savoury/earthy nature of mataro is resistant to change, but it gains a narrow margin here.94 points James Halliday Learn More

    "Spicy, savoury, cedary lift, red currants, cranberry, pomegranate, pepper. Got it going on. Bright and juicy in the palate, spot on. Has a crispy crunch to tannin and acidity, sits high and bright and just darn yummy to drink. Touch sweet through the finish, but hey, that’s drinkability too.

    "Some wines just hit the nail square on. 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." Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    Samuels Gorge Graciano 2015

    Regular Price: $41.99

    Special Price: $41.00

    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 sh Learn More

    There’s talk that 2015 is one of the best vintages in Piedmont for quite some time, and that 2016 is even better. Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear. “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” Black cherry, liquorice root, baking spices and potpourri. Medium bodied, supple and fleshy, almost juicy, then the Nebbiolo tannin extends its friendly and reassuring grip, slips in some savoury stuff like new leather, and closes with perfume and strong black tea flavour and texture. It needs some time in the decanter as Learn More

    Sourced from one of Plantagenet’s vineyards. There’s rumour that it is one of the original new wave tempranillo plantings of the variety in Australia, potentially. Planted 1999 or so. Has some flesh, has lots of charm. Indeed, this is one of the great tempranillos of Australia. It’s packed with sinewy tannin, shrewd in dark fruit, coal and spice character through and through. Hugely aromatic, funk and wildness, a sip and it’s almost a Learn More

    "Single vineyard. Made by Purple Hands. Blend of shiraz, montepulciano and aglianico. All French oak, most of it old. Bowled over by balance. It’s bold with flavour but everything here feels so well placed. It tastes of licorice, redcurrant, black cherries and peppery herbs, and while there’s a velvety/creaminess to the texture oak is not a major flavour contributor. Tannin spreads and runs through a good deal of the wine, almost always a good sign. Learn More

     Winemaker Steve Pannell talks a very interesting and relevant line about making wines that suit Australia’s ‘food culture’. His gist is that wine in Australia often forgets to be relevant to what we eat, and that wines produced from wine regions often miss cues from climate and resources in the growing areas. I tend to agree. This isn’t just about that weird, miscued term ‘food wine’, it’s about understanding what our broad brushstrokes of food totems are, and thinking about wines that match. That this is a lighter style Learn More

    has a strong and savory bouquet of mixed red and black fruit, lots of dried herbs and a dash of leather. Tasting the wine reveals jammy mixed berries, dried herbs, and some good prominent tannins. (Prominent, but not overdone by any means.) This is a very good, rich wine with some savory smoky notes. The finish is long, dry and spicy with a bit of mocha, some earthiness and a little dark berry. Viva la Monastrell! Learn More

    a classic vintage throughout much of Europe and Veneto was no exception. The vineyards began with excellent soil moisture levels and the vines responded well to ideal spring conditions before a very warm, dry summer slowed growth and limited yields. A warm , clear Autumn provided excellent ripening but crucially cool nights ensured the retention of naturally acidity. The wines are surprisingly fresh and aromatic with excellent depth of flavour. Pale and delicate in colour with subtle citrus and floral aromas. The palate is elegant and de Learn More

    Dark brick red in colour  with crimson highlights. The nose is already expressive and inviting with a complex array of fresh red fruits, dried herbs, forest undergrowth and aniseed. The palate is medium to full bodied, driven by core of supple raspberry and dark plum flavours courtesy of the Barbera. Nebbiolo adds structure and length alongside fine tannins.

    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.
