  1. Forester Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Forester Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Regular Price: $26.50

    Special Price: $24.99

    Sitting where I sit, it’s easy lately to forget that wines like this exist. This is really clean crisp Cabernet from one of the places on Earth it grows best.


    It’s all coffee and cocoa and mocha, cedary oak and blueberries, musk and faint lavender and violets, clean as a whistle and ready to swell and turn and glower with a decade in a good cellar. Once again made after the old (1950s) Penfolds open fermenters/temperature control/pumpover method, it delivers a similar result at just a bit of the price of their best.


    As it plays around in your mouth, its slender and sinuous form does that magical transformation from silky and elegant viscosity to velvet, with the right level of acid and drying fine-grained tannins sorting all the slick stuff out, letting them all trickle through the organoleptic division in the right order at the right pace.


    Right now I’m loving it with crumbly sheep’s cheese, lemon juice, basil and black pepper on dark rye. I could drive myself nuts dreaming of having it with simply grilled lamb cutlets, pink and dribbling, and mash. It makes your cheeks leak; opens the salvaries till they gush.


    Maybe too clinically bright for the dirty-arse funkster fanatics, it’s a damn good reflection of the noble Cabernet at its arrogant, aromatic best. Regardless of the politics, I can’t imagine anybody refusing a glass." 93+ Points

  2. Fraser Gallop Cabernet Merlot 2013

    Fraser Gallop Cabernet Merlot 2013

    Regular Price: $24.99

    Special Price: $22.49

    As low as: $22.00

    The wine itself is soft and approachable with juicy plum and pomegranate flavours. The tannins are quite grainy and persistent similar to cranberry juice. The oak in this wine definitely sits in the background allowing the fruit to shine and the acidity and alcohol levels are nicely balanced in the wine, making it very easy to drink.


     Mixed berries, cocoa and vanilla, tobacco, and this lovely perfume wafting about. Medium bodied, silky and tightly packed, clean acidity, ripe but fresh berry fruit, with a distinct ‘minerally’ feel to it. Freshness, length, complexity and effortless drinkability.
    Absolutely bang on. Can’t recall a better release of this wine. 93 points Winefront.com.au

  3. Glaetzer Anaperenna Shiraz Cabernet 2013

    Glaetzer Anaperenna Shiraz Cabernet 2013

    Regular Price: $51.99

    Special Price: $46.79

    As low as: $45.00

    loads of spicy, blackberry and plummy fruits from the Shiraz. The palate has masses of rich dark fruit flavours, mulberry, plum, dark berries, spices and has wonderful intensity and length, the term mouth filling, doesn't quite do it justice!. The creamy mouthfeel and soft and ripe tannins of this wine is amazing, it's incredibly seductive and intense and is absolutely delicious now! I think its as good as the 2006 vintage, which was a favourite of mine, and is as good as a young Barossa red can be - outstanding. Gavin Trott Auswine

  1. Hay Shed Hill Cabernet Merlot 2012

    Hay Shed Hill Cabernet Merlot 2012

    Regular Price: $20.99

    Special Price: $18.89

    95 points James Halliday - "Ticks all the boxes from the first whiff through to the finish and aftertaste; shows the effortless power that a medium-bodied wine can provide when varieties, place and winemaking are all in sync. ... 
    Black fruit, dark mint chocolate, bay leaf and spice. Medium bodied, but feels densely packed and surprisingly rich with layers of silky smooth palate covering tannin, more to red and black fruits to taste, well seasoned with aromatic herbs and spice. This is seriously good wine for the money.  92 points Winefront.com.au"

  2. Hay Shed Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Hay Shed Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Regular Price: $27.50

    Special Price: $26.00

    As low as: $25.00
    .....  2012 was a great vintage in the Margaret River, producing many exemplary cabernets, combining elegance with intense varietal fruit. Here cassis floods the senses, so much so it is easy to forget the fine, ripe tannins and French oak lined up in silent support.” – 96 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
    “There is intensity and magnitude to this vintage of Hay Shed Hill’s single vineyard Wilyabrup cabernet, yet at every moment maintaining focus and control. Layers of blackcurrant, redcurrant and cassis fruit are intricately framed in firm, fine tannins of impeccable balance. It finishes very long and enticing, presenting a grandeur well beyond its price.” – 95 Points Tyson Stelzer

  3. Heartland Spice Trader 2012

    Heartland Spice Trader 2012

    Regular Price: $17.50

    Special Price: $15.00

    This is a very dark glass of juicy and delicious red. A burst of intense primary fruit greets the palate with blueberries, blackberries and currants. These powerful fruit notes can engulf the uninitiated, but waves of spice can be discovered by seasoned flavor explorers.

  1. Hentley Farm Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Hentley Farm Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Regular Price: $34.00

    Special Price: $32.00

    As low as: $31.00

    Part estate, part contract-grown grapes from the northwestern section of the Valley. While plush and generous, there is no doubting the varietal make-up of this wine, charged with totally delicious cassis fruit, in turn balanced by fine and ripe, yet imperious, tannins as befit the variety.
    In typical fashion for Hentley Farm, you don't see the oak, simply know it's there. 94 points James Halliday

    Dark purple with bright red hue. Blackcurrant, menthol, violet pastille. Plush dark fruits, cocoa, red earth.

  3. Lake Breeze Bernoota 2012

    Lake Breeze Bernoota 2012

    Regular Price: $23.00

    Special Price: $21.99

    As low as: $20.00

    Slightly less new oak than used for previous vintages. If you’ve been known to enjoy a bottle of Lake Breeze’s famed Bernoota red, then you will love this. It’s a classic example of the label. Balanced, bountifully-fruited, slapped with sexy vanillin/coffeed/musky oak but, importantly, beautifully well balanced. Tickled with fine tannin through the finished.
    Spot on example of the style.93+ points Winefront
