  1. Ministry of Clouds Mataro 2013

    Ministry of Clouds Mataro 2013

    Regular Price: $38.00

    Special Price: $36.50

    As low as: $34.00

    Cold soak, 11 months in old oak. Looks like plenty of whole berries in here. Has a real lift not often seen in Mataro. Meaty core. I love the prettiness even though this isn't classically varietal - a bit too opulent for that. Attractive wine though. 17.7/20, 92/100 Andrew Graham Ozwinereview

    Alternatus Tempranillo 2014

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $22.50

    As low as: $20.99

    An emerging variety that matches so well with food. Bright, although relatively light, crimson-purple. A lifted nose of dark cherries, raspberries and sandalwood. The palate has luscious cherry flavours, delicate spice and delicious soft tannins.


    Have it with...Spanish styled food or rich meat dishes.

    Regular Price: $27.99

    As low as: $25.00

    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.

  1. Ravensworth Hilltops Nebbiolo 2015

    Ravensworth Hilltops Nebbiolo 2015

    Regular Price: $36.00

    Special Price: $34.50

    As low as: $33.00

    ...The palate is inky yet light on its feet, though truth be told it feels like its lacking just a touch of tension. Acidity is beautiful, crisp, cool and lifts the wash of dark fruit, fennel, sweet spice and sheet of lacy tannin to a sweet fruit and amaro finish.
    Generous nebbiolo full of character."  92 points Winefront.com.au
    Deeper colour than most nebbiolos, with intense crimson; rose petals, spice, earth and a lick of tar and dried herbs lead to a generous and relatively rounded palate, the trademark savoury tannins driving the length. 13.5% alc, screwcap 95 points, drink to 2030, $36 James Halliday

    Marques de Tezona Tempranillo (Superb Spanish Red wine, perfect case buying)

    Regular Price: $13.99

    Special Price: $12.50

    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

  3. Hither & Yon Aglianico 2013

    Hither & Yon Aglianico 2013

    Regular Price: $22.99

    Special Price: $21.50

    As low as: $21.00

    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

    Head Wines the Brunette 2014

    Regular Price: $53.99

    Special Price: $51.50

    As low as: $50.00

    Colour is deep red. The nose shows aniseed, tar, FruChocs and spicy oak. The fine palate entry has mulberry, cranberry, aniseed and liquorice flowing delicately with Rhone-like spicy, chewy, savoury tannins. Class in spades, no lumps, no bumps, this Brunette should pair well with venison or aged, strong cheeses. Unfined & Unfiltered. Alc 13.9%. Drink 2015-2035. Decant for 1 hour minimum.

    Woods Crampton Barossa Mataro 2014

    Regular Price: $26.50

    Special Price: $25.00

    As low as: $24.50

    Pure, ripe, berried fruit made prettier by floral and Asian spice aspects. This is a joy to smell, to drink, to admire.
    The price too is more than reasonable. A 'What are you waiting for?' wine. 93 points James Halliday


    Blood plum and red fruits, honey, spice and leather, with sweet dried herbs. Medium bodied, juicy, glossy and smooth, but beautifully controlled, light fine grained tannin, and a herb infused finish of excellent length.
    So much more character than Barossa Shiraz. So great to drink. 
    Rated : 94 Points Gary Walsh Winefront.com.au

  3. Maretti Langhe Rosso 2012

    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
