    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

    "One of the best, young Etna wines I’ve seen. It’s guttural and savoury, earthy and yet sweet fruited, powered by clamping tannins and a swish of blood orange acidity. Impressive in its sweep across the palate it’s wildly, wonderfully perfumed with a mix of dark berries, briar, dark chocolate, warm stones, ash and alpine herbs. There’s depth in flavour too, no wallflower, but the freshness is all there. Velocity across the tongue, assertive, lip-smacking, then stains the palate with that gently f Learn More

    There's a sense of extra generosity and ripeness in this release. Beautiful perfume, draws you into the glass, one to sniff on long and with pleasure. Rose hip tea, raspberry, pot pourri, sandalwood. More roses than tar. It's a succulent wine, mouthwatering in acidity, floods the palate with sweet-ripe berry fruit flavours, exits with a lingering build of bergamot tea-like tannin. Just over medium weight. Luxurious nebbiolo. Delicious." 95 points, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au 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

    Sicily can be such a happy hunting ground for wines that combine drinkability, interest and good value. There’s three ticks here. This is savoury and minerally, but lush with dark cherries, spice, floral top notes, and maybe a few of the old cheeky black jellybeans. Love the smooth silty tannin, pitch perfect acidity, and the light spiciness to finish. It’s only just medium bodied, almost delicate for a Nero, but gee this is good drinking. So sophisticated at the price.  Learn More

    .....Every itch is scratched, every promise fulfilled. It’s tense, perfumed, earthen, licorice-like, scribbled with fine-point tannin and persistent enough to made each swig feel like a journey. It’s a wine of finer details, no broad strokes allowed, no generalisations. It’s devilishly good. Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    Third vintage release of the affordable Calo tempranillo and it’s another goodun’. Value plus. It probably needs another 6-12 months in bottle but it’s bonza drinking once again. Glossy vanilla and bueberry. Soft. Has a bit of tannin to it. A bit of chew. Smoky, bacony, chicory length. Bloody good drinking. Gorgeously medium-weight and food friendly. 90 points Winefront 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.

    96 Points. A concentrated and deeply flavoursome Grenache from the sandy Vine Vale soils, this has attractive spicy red and purple berry fruits with some gently stony, almost flinty edges and hints of wild roasting herbs. The palate's beautifully fresh and lithe, really nicely honed in terms of tannin, and vibrant and succulent. Red-plum and dark-cherry flavours snap fresh through the finish. Superb wine.

    "It's easy to see why barbera is Italy's most prominent red variety: this stuff makes you crave pasta. This is tight, unforgiving, very dry red, with powerful, persistent, fine-grained tannin that sets the whole mouth puckering for tucker. It is not, what you say, fruit driven, or juicy. But feed it pure spaghetti bolognaise, or paste with lots of black olive and fresh herbs, and you're away. It will cellar for a decade." Philip White - Adelaide Advertiser Learn More

    McLaren Vale winery Coriole was the first to plant sangiovese in Australia, and have a strong Italian connection to this day, with Barbera and Nebbiolo also in their range. This is my pick from the current releases, just ahead of the Barbera. There's leathery dark fruit, with some sour cherry and chocolate flavours. Good on its own but even better with food. Top value.

    WINEFRONT 93 points "Here’s something new. From Duncan and Peter Lloyd, sons of Mark Lloyd of Coriole, comes an indie project. The source is Coriole’s Blewitt Springs vineyard, not but the wine label is entirely separate. Nice to hear Duncan is back in the Coriole bosom after several years experience outside of the family winemaking fold. This is a wine that says ‘run, don’t walk’ to me. It’s a killer release. It’s also a blend of nero d’avola, mourvedre, carignan and shiraz. Spice 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

    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.

Classic Barossa Shiraz with layers of ripe sweet fruit, all plum, musk and chocolate, and just so seductive and so well done, it’s hard not to fall in love with the style.
