  1. Head Wines ‘NOUVEAU’ Touriga Montepulciano Grenache 2014

    Head Wines ‘NOUVEAU’ Touriga Montepulciano Grenache 2014

    Regular Price: $20.00

    Special Price: $19.00

    As low as: $18.00

     60% Touriga Nacional and 40% Montepulciano, from Marananga. And why not? Last year’s model was great.


    Earthy, meaty and spicy, sour cherries and chocolate, floral high tones, then that metallic thing that you (I) seem to get in Touriga which runs through the palate. Light to medium bodied, juicy and meaty at once, light tannin, refreshingly bitter flavours – quinine and amaro herbs – and a juicy sour cherry finish of decent length. Lovely to drink. 
    Fascination and quaffing level enjoyment at once. Recommended. 91 points Winefront.com.au

  2. Bellwether Wines Shiraz Malbec 2013

  3. Wirra Wirra the Absconder Grenache 2012

    Wirra Wirra the Absconder Grenache 2012

    Produced off 95 year old vines, what makes this special is just how utterly Grenache-y it is. Purple-red in colour, the nose smells of plum Roll-Ups, red licorice, black pepper and dark earth, at once bright and clean yet also with a wallop of Grenache meatiness. The palate follows with a contained, yet utterly ripe and intensely juicy palate. No oak to be seen (barrels are 6 years plus), the acid is just a little snappy on the back end (TA 6.1), but the finish is long, with that concentrated brambly licorice character that you only ever see in really old vine Grenache (and I love).

    Bright hue; a tightly scripted exercise in precision, balance and length,its blackcurrant and spice fruit driving the fresh, medium-bodied palate; the varietal mix and sense of place occupy equal parts of the stage. 94 points James Halliday... Medium bodied, firm in the mouth with open weave grainy tannin tactile things they are red and black fruit, tobacco and clear acidity. Love the slick of grainy tannin on the finish that marks it a more serious wine than you're paying for.terrific vintage for this wine. 93 points Winefront.com.au

  2. Woodlands Cabernet Franc Merlot 2012

    Woodlands Cabernet Franc Merlot 2012

    47% Cabernet Franc, 46% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon and how good are Woodlands wines at the moment? They are absolutely killing it. Raspberry, redcurrant, tobacco, aniseed and violet perfume, kiss of choc-vanilla oak along with some grassy varietal Franc notes.
    Medium bodied, fresh and red fruited – positively leaps through the mouth like those gazelles that go in and about clefts – grainy tannin controls and shapes, then there’s tight firm finish that runs pretty damn long.
    Mainly though, it’s just so good to drink. Vibrant and delicious.92+ points Winefront.com.au

    Yelland & Papps Sete Di Vino 2013

    Regular Price: $21.00

    Special Price: $19.50

    As low as: $18.99

    mulberry flavours provide the fruit backbone along with hints of Asian spice, licorice, frangipani, almond paste and earth. It treads a focussed line with bright, sapid acidity and drive throughout its length.
    A curtain of gentle ripe chalky tannin wraps up the proceeding as the wine trails off showing fine acidity and spicy red fruits. Delicious.

    Tim Smith Wines Barossa Shiraz 2013

    Regular Price: $36.00

    Special Price: $34.50

    As low as: $34.00
    “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

    Hither & Yon Aglianico 2013

    Regular Price: $22.99

    Special Price: $21.50

    As low as: $21.00

    Bright plum red; the nose has a soft red fruit fragrance - there's a reference on the back label to 'pink marshmallow' which I think is great. Sappy, dry palate is framed with tannins - bitter, mouth-cleansing, proper tannins. Complement that with some cherry red fruit late juiciness and you've got frankly one utterly delicious, dry and savoury red. Those tannins are perhaps just a little too bitter, but gee it makes for a refreshing and vital one.
    Massive yes. Drink 2015-2025+. 18/20, 93/100
    Details: 12.6%, Screwcap, $27, Sample
    Would I buy it? Yes. I'd need something meaty, but I'd smash a half bottle." Andrew Graham OzWineReview

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