Elefante La Senda Tempranillo

Regular Price: $15.99

Special Price: $15.50

As low as: $14.99

Elefante wines almost always rate high on the value scale. This is a good quaffing red. It tastes of red berries and dry, woody spices. It’s clean, juicy, and easy-to-drink. It doesn't have a lot of oomph but that’s not really the point and/or intent. Well polished. Winefront.com.au

Fontanafredda Langhe Nebbiolo 2012

Regular Price: $30.00

Special Price: $28.99

As low as: $28.00

An affordable, authentic Langhe Neb under screwcap. Importer: Fourth Wave Wine Licorice root, perfumed and red fruited with almond in the background. Medium bodied, fresh, very pure and clear, shape and length is very good. Light tannin.
Approachable and very enjoyable, and while it comes up in the glass beautifully, I don't think it's a cellaring style. 92 points Winefront.com.au

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

Glaetzer the Wallace GSM 2013

Regular Price: $21.99

Special Price: $19.99

As low as: $19.00

Fresh and floral, with a dusting of pepper over blue and black fruits, and maybe some liquorice. Medium to full bodied, open weave grainy tannin, fresh black fruit and mocha,with an almost Ribena juiciness to it. Slight peppery character and fractionally too perky acidity, but has precision and excellent drive through the palate. Pretty good length too. 91 points Winefront.com.au

Gran Sasso Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC (full case buy only)

Regular Price: $13.99

Special Price: $13.50

Blood plum, nuts, licorice and some chocolate on a middle weight palate that delivers plenty of flavour along with attractive chewiness and freshness. The length is particularly impressive and closes with a desirable Italianate bitterness, like chicory or similar. Is it the best release of Gran Sasso to date? I suspect so. I defy you to find a more interesting, savoury wine with modest alcohol and food friendliness at the price. If you do, please let me know. It’s ever so slightly better than a 90 point wine ... Rated : 91 Points Winefront

Hay Shed Hill Cabernet Merlot 2012

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"

Head Wines the Ancestor Grenache 2014

Regular Price: $100.00

Special Price: $95.00

As low as: $90.00

 Contemplative wine this one, and much like grand Pinot Noir, of which it shares a certain weight and perfume, it really evolves and shifts around with time in glass. Turkish delight perfume dusted with pepper and dusty exotic spices, raspberry and ripe strawberry, raw almonds, pears poached in red wine studded with clove and cinnamon, and a host of other things, real or imagined. 


Light to medium bodied, rippling with tone and muscle, funk and spice, slaty tannin and dryness, then that kiss of red fruits and perfume. It's pretty, and tough at the same time. Takes some time and effort to get to know, though certainly it's worth the effort. Quite outside the mainstream of Australian wine too, which is no bad thing. Real vinosity and verve. Think the score is more or less right. 96 points Gary Walsh Winefront.com.au"

Head Wines the Head Red 2014

Regular Price: $25.50

Special Price: $23.50

As low as: $22.50

Dark red to black colour. The nose shows raspberry, aniseed, tar, cola, vanilla cream, rosemary, sage and menthol. The palate has layers of liquered red fruits and complex, supple tannins. The sweeter fruits and glycerols seem to completely coat the tannins underneath. Try with Indian dishes or BBQ'd red meats. Easy to drink now or up to 10 years.
