    It’s medium bodied, peppery and meaty, with bramble fruit of subtle sweetness and the perfume of wild scrub herbs. Tannin is light and gently chalky, acidity is well played and the finish is pretty long and fresh. Lovely to drink. Gulp even. 90 points Winefront..com.au Learn More

    Likely I won’t make any new friends by saying it, but most Australian red wine under $15 is kind of gross. Well, maybe not gross, but often they try too hard: too much cheap oak, sweetness, acid adjustment, high alcohol etc. etc. all at the expense of basic drinkability.Blueberry and mixed berries, wild herbs and nuts with a little chocolate. Medium bodied, light tannin with some grainy grip , balanced acidity and a nutty faintly perfumed herbal finish. Great mid-week drinking. Balance and value. Can’t Learn More

    Regular Price: $13.99

    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 Learn More

    Regular Price: $13.99

    Special Price: $12.50

    It’s actually added sauvignon blanc to the front label (and of course to the wine). The style of this wine is to be applauded. It’s just so dry and briny. And textural. It impresses by understatement as much as anything. Crisp and fresh, sure, with herb and brine flavours the main players. There’s a musky note to the finish, which is well sustained. Great seafood style. 90 points Winefront.com.au Learn More

    ... 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. And, given some time, will be terrific drinking. 91+ points WInefront.com.au Learn More

    Maretti Barbera Nebbiolo (Full case buy)

    Regular Price: $23.00

    Special Price: $20.00

    Dark brick red in colour  with crimson highlights. The nose is already expressive and inviting with a complex array of fresh red fruits, dried herbs, forest undergrowth and aniseed. The palate is medium to full bodied, driven by core of supple raspberry and dark plum flavours courtesy of the Barbera. Nebbiolo adds structure and length alongside fine tannins. Enjoy in its youth with a wide range of rich Italian dishes. A 'mini' Barolo, for this price? Unbelievable ... yet true. Stock up, I have! Gavin Trott Learn More

    Mandoleto Pinot Grigio (Case Buy)

    Regular Price: $15.00

    a classic vintage throughout much of Europe and Veneto was no exception. The vineyards began with excellent soil moisture levels and the vines responded well to ideal spring conditions before a very warm, dry summer slowed growth and limited yields. A warm , clear Autumn provided excellent ripening but crucially cool nights ensured the retention of naturally acidity. The wines are surprisingly fresh and aromatic with excellent depth of flavour. Pale and delicate in colour with subtle citrus and floral aromas. The palate is elegant and de Learn More

    Black jellybeans stuffed in leather pants, dark cherry, iron filings, damp earth, sweet dried herbs.

    "It’s French, it’s bubbly, it’s under $20 and it’s a whole lot of fun. In many ways, there’s no need to say anything more. It’s musky and lemony, alive with fluffy bubbles and flavoursome enough. I know it’s a blanc de blancs but I saw some Turkish delight characters in it; though that said, I drank a bit too much of this a bit too quickly, so maybe my judgement was impaired. It’s that kind of wine. Buy."  By Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front Learn More

    This wine, a modern type of French sauvignon, has intense varietal personality, suggesting tropical fruits, blackcurrants, grass and minerals. It tastes forward and fruity, refreshing and clean. Ralph Kyte-Powell It’s cracking value. ... Tropical fruits and hay. Acidity gets a little stringy on the finish but it’s bright, flavoursome and different-enough to make you want to reach for more.

    Decent, quaffable pinot noir for under $20? It's almost impossible to find but this terrific value import from the south of France manages it ... “the best French Pinot Noir outside of Burgundy” .... It's on the riper side of the pinot spectrum, certainly no shrinking violet, but no brash bogan either. The (French) girl next door with smoothness, dark cherry fruit flavours, hints of earthiness and plenty of length. Windsor Dobbin Learn More

    Good intensity here. Really fresh and perfumed. Inviting. Textural. Almost chewy. Rose petals and green apples. Stonefruity power to the mid palate. Chalky finish.

Glossy vanilla and bueberry. Soft. Has a bit of tannin to it. A bit of chew. Smoky, bacony, chicory length. Bloody good drinking.

    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
