    100% Cabernet Franc, hand harvested from organically tended vines planted on the gravelly shale soil of western Anjou-just across the river from Savennières. The idea here is for a fun, lively, no-nonsense 'vin de soif', made to be enjoyed young while vibrant and fresh. To this end the fruit is fully destemmed and then simply fermented/raised in stainless steel for just six months. This leaps out the glass with freshly picked berries, dried herbs and smoky graphite notes. The palate is crunchy- Learn More

    "This is from younger vines in Serralunga (barolo). Different from other recently reviewed nebbs that were briefly 'aged' in stainless steel, this was matured in big oak for 18 months before bottling and is way more tertiary in its colour, aromas and flavours. As a result it presents more like a scaled-back barolo, with characters of earth, mineral and tar, with ever-present fragrant notes reinforcing the elegance. The resolved level of the fruit and tannins make this just as gluggable as its more primary contemporaries. And it went down a treat with pan-f 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

    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

    "In the scheme of Australian nebbiolo, currently, this is sensational value. More kudos to the whip smart winemaking nous of braniacs Colin McBryde and Jennie Gardner, and of course, the wonderful grapes grown on the Gardner estate (though this isn’t grown there). This has charisma. Old rose petals, sweet pot pourri, pepper, Chinese five spice, dark cherries. Great bouquet, evocative and enticing. Palate is juicy, deep in flavour, richer than expected but tied down on peeling waves of building, puckering, suede tannins. Has a s Learn More

    Buckboard Durif is inky purple-black in colour. There are captivating aromas of blackberry jam, dark plum, sweet spice, fruit cake and chocolate. The palate is rich and full-bodied. Black fruits dominate. Toasty oak is evident adding complexity. Tannins are solid adding a muscular backbone and dry finish to this generous wine. Buckboard Durif can be enjoyed now, but best over the next decade. 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

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

    It’s good Barossa Shiraz with a little something extra for the weekend. Dark fruit, lavender, liquorice, spice and rosemary. Medium bodied, supple and almost juicy, but a bit brooding too, layered with spice and perfumed with sweet herbs. Tannin is well tuned and sits neatly inside the wine with a graphite feel, and the finish is long and shapely with something of a chicory aftertaste. It’s complex, interesting, and insanely good value. Learn More

    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

    Mike Bennie - The Wine Front - 91 points Intense kind of wine but geez it feels good to drink. It’s heady in dark fruit, prune, cinnamon, cola and anise scents. The palate is a punchy wash of dark fruits, kirsch, faint herbs. It’s juicy but has pops of bright acidity through it, making it feel a touch wild, but also, supremely refreshing as a red. Do you like medium weight, spicy-feeling reds with some oomph? Here ya go. C Learn More

    The nose is dark, dark brooding and somewhat wild. The palate likewise opens with a wall of fruit-driven flavour – a complex swirl of blackcurrant, plums, meat and exotic spice all balancing within a framework of whole bunch twang and graphite tannins. Bright acidity keeps the wine light on its feet. An exciting indication of what is possible in the Barossa Valley. Learn More

    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.

     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

    Made mostly with mataro, but with dashes of both grenache and shiraz. Fermented dry. No time on skins but plenty of blush to the colour. “Rose is no longer a third wheel, it’s a legitimate style. You don’t make them by accident. They’re light reds. You make them with purpose.”The appeal is clear, and obvious. Gorgeous perfume. Gorgeous fruit. Jubey for the most part but as it rushes through the palate it begins to crackle with a herbal dryness. Learn More
