  1. Yelland & Papps Second Take Shiraz 2012

    Yelland & Papps Second Take Shiraz 2012
    $38.00

    93 points - Philip White - ... . manufacture, then charging an extra fiver for making available the privilege of drinking her raw and unwritten. Get some mates and lovers round for dinner. Dob in and buy one each of these. Then bring three conventional favourites, pour ’em blind, and argue all night.
    Deep, bright crimson-purple; the deeply-fruited bouquet leads into an immaculately balanced and structured medium- to full-bodied palate, with plum, black cherry and blackberry to the fore, quality oak and fine-grained tannins bringing up the finish. 95 points James Halliday

  2. 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

  3.  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.

  1. Head Wines the Blonde 2012

    Head Wines the Blonde 2012

    Regular Price: $39.99

    Special Price: $37.50

    As low as: $36.00

    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

    Bright and fresh, blackberry and boysenberry with fresh berry acidity, almost a tang to it, dark fruit, leather and bitter chocolate and herb. Has a slow churn of tannin to go with the pippy acidity and finishes very long. Needs a fair amount of time to settle. It’s not cuddly by any stretch, but it’s very good. I under-estimated it at first. I admired it at the last. 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

  2. SC Pannell Arido Nebbiolo Rose 2013

    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

    inevitable touch of dark chocolate; a strong spice character runs through the palate, originally with red pepper, ageing into green pepper; outstanding tannin management is the key to an exceptionally good wine, one of the magic touches being a late decision to include the mataro in the blend, making it a complete wine. 96 points James Halliday Wine Companion
