  1. Mandoleto Nero d'Avola Terre Siciliane  (Case Buy)

    Mandoleto Nero d'Avola Terre Siciliane (Case Buy)

    Regular Price: $15.00

    Special Price: $13.50

    Black jellybeans stuffed in leather pants, dark cherry, iron filings, damp earth, sweet dried herbs. Medium bodied, clean acidity, cherry and blackcurrant, light but grainy chalky tannin and pretty decent length. A little gamey, perhaps, but such a good drinking wine.
    Recommended unconditionally. Drink now.
    90 points Winefront.com.au
    ....  the palate is a lively mix of berries and savoury tannins with lively acidity. Not surprisingly it’s easy to drink with a spicy imprint on the finish. Another impressive import with bags of bright personality that begs for food. WiningPom

    Special Price: $25.50

    As low as: $25.00

    Around 10% by weight of whole bunch fruit is added to the ferment to add complexity and tannin structure. The Primitivo, Mataro and Graciano were all aged in seasoned barrels and then blended and settled before bottling unfiltered and unfined. Showing rich and fruity blackberry flavours, interwoven with deep roasted Middle Eastern spices and tobacco leaf smokiness. A ripe black cherry palate shows black pepper spices across a bright and fresh palate, finishing clean with firm but ripe tannins

  3. 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

    Bodega Catena Zapata Alamos Malbec

    Regular Price: $19.50

    Special Price: $18.50

    As low as: $18.00

    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.

  2. Yangarra McLaren Vale Old Vine Grenache 2014

    Yangarra McLaren Vale Old Vine Grenache 2014

    Regular Price: $30.99

    Special Price: $29.50

    As low as: $27.00

    Pretty floral aromas and briary bright red fruits. Shows lots of bright cherry fruit, and the vineyard’s typical fine line of sandy mineral tannins and acidity.
    "From bushvines planted '46 at Blewitt Springs, cold soak, open-fermented with 50% whole berries, wild yeast, matured in used French oak for 9 months. Lightish colour is misleading: the wine has a cascade of red fruits, with a slightly unexpected brush fence of ripe tannins, important now as much as in the future when they will fuse back into the wine." 95 points James Halliday

    “Always enjoy the wines from Tim Smith, and could you have a more modest name than Tim Smith? Two syllables. It’s pretty much business as usual for Tim Smith Shiraz here, so if you’ve liked the past few vintages, then no surprises here. Blackberry, chocolate, vanilla nougat, spicy biscuits etc. Medium to full bodied, deep flavour, firm grainy tannin and well balanced acidity, then mixed dark berries, vanilla and Barossa coal run through to a long and tannic finish. Textbook. Likely a little more to come over the next few years.”- 93+ points Gary Walsh.

     

    "Matured on fine yeast lees in mostly French oak; sourced from 10 vineyards, the oldest 130 years; part Barossa Valley, part Eden Valley. Made with great skill, this is a seriously good wine, awash with black fruits, licorice and 
    fine, brambly tannins; the balance and length are perfect, the oak fully integrated" - 96 Points James Halliday

    Tim Smith Wines Barossa Mataro Grenache Shiraz 2014

    Regular Price: $26.50

    Special Price: $25.00

    As low as: $24.00

    Deep red. Heady aromas of strawberry and kirsch. The strawberry component is a result of whole bunch fermentation with the Grenache component. Spicy and layered, the medium bodied palate has earthy Mataro richness and length. Fruit flavours are in the dried fig spectrum. Soft, mature and savoury skin tannins define the finish.

    ...... black Russian tomatoes steaming on the toast, dribbling beneath a shiny port and cream reduction, black pepper everywhere. This makes surrender a delight. It’s a third the price of a good Bandol, and a tiny fraction of the cost of that air ticket.
    Be quick! Sublime in as many ways as I can think, and believe me, my sodden old brain has spread so wide it’s dribbling off the edges of the plate.

    Dark cherry red, light purple rim. Black cherry, toasted pinenut and thyme. Dark cherries, blackberry, raspberry licorice. Light fruit weight, quite tart, with woody herbs, a hint of aniseed, fine tannins and red earth. This is a young style, which is clean, juicy and simple. There is just enough sweetness, making it very food friendly.

    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

    93 points - "Small parcels from estate blocks vinified separately from start to finish in new and used French oak. Convincing colour, and at the heavyweight/top end of the malbec scale, with loads of earthy plum and black fruits; the fruit has swallowed the oak, and the tannins are in balance. Deserves time. 13.5% alc. To 2035." James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion 2016, 27 July 2015

    Dense and brooding with delicate notes of black cherries and brambly fruits the moonlight run has already proven itself a favourite during the cool Autumn evenings. Gentle and very approachable with underlying flavours of black cherries, gamy Grenache flavours, wild berries with a back bone of Mataro tannins, this vintage is truly a step up from previous releases.

    The nose shows concentrated red fruit characters, strawberry, red liquorice, cherry primary fruit aromas mixed with fennel seed and black liquorice notes from Shiraz, completed by spicy, cinnamon, allspice notes, creates vibrant concentrated primary fruit aromatics with subtle spice and savoury notes adding to complexity. The wine is full and broad on the palate with juicy red fruit character up front, and the finish is firm due to fine-grained, dusty tannins which add length and complexity from the spicy/savoury notes of Shiraz and Touriga. There's great balance between primary fruit notes and savoury/spice complexity, and the intensity of pure, fresh fruit is particularly impressive.

    Bodega Zapata Catena Malbec

    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.

    Yelland & Papps Second Take Shiraz 2015

    Sappy mezcal aromatics, grilled meat with black pepper, cherries and red fruits, sweet cinnamon laced oak. Medium bodied, vibrant and spicy, with some floral mouth-perfume, light rasp of tannin, almost a pretty expression of Barossa Shiraz here, with a crisp finish of excellent length. Complex, but easy to drink."
    Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au
    "Hand-picked, 50% whole bunches, 18 days on skins, wild-fermented, matured in French oak (47% new) for 8 months. A fragrant spicy/peppery bouquet; a savoury black fruit palate with finely chiselled tannins and oak adding to the length on the palate. This is an exceptional Barossa Valley shiraz, humming with the unexpected." 95 points James Halliday

    This, for me at least, is textbook Barossa Shiraz. It’s perfumed and rosy, smooth with milk chocolate, raspberry and plum, light spicy oak framing the fruit beautifully. Medium bodied, silky and fine, melts on the palate and lays the charm on thick throughout. Turkish delight and gossamer fine tannin trails on a long fresh finish. Delightful."

    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.

    ... 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.

    Invariably a good wine, and invariably better than the ever-popular Riebke Shiraz.


    "You can count on it. It’s reliably good. Blackberry, plum, anise and leather flavours run amiably through the palate. It’s warm and rich-enough with a minerally, smoky, spicy finish. It won’t bowl anyone over with its quality but it will please most red wine lovers. Lots of flavour, and some character too.

Plenty of lavender, dried rosemary, hung game-meats, musk and white pepper. The palate is well weighted with plenty of texture and fruit flavour’s of ripe, plum, blackfruit’s, mulberry and cherry. As to be expected there are the rich savoury and spicy aspects that we love from this variety in abundance. Nutmeg, Dutch licorice and a great earthy weight. Ripe, chalky tannins wrap in to a long persistent finish.
