  1. Adelina Eternal Return Arneis 2015

    Adelina Eternal Return Arneis 2015

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $23.99

    As low as: $23.00

    I’ve met Adelina winemaker, Col McBryde, a couple of times. He’s a nice chap. Quiet. Thoughtful. Has a bit of a perky face too. Applies his considerable intelligence to his craft, or so it seems to me. There are no shit wines at Adelina. Arneis is a hard grape to get right, I think, but this is spot on. The balance is all just so, with the right amount of richness of fruit and silky glossy texture, cut back just right with flinty bits and cool acidity. The flavours are probably something like almonds, green pears, fresh herbs and maybe tangerine, with a touch of warmth. Finish is crunchy, like a crisp green pear and its skin.
    Such a lovely wine. 93 points Winefront.com.au

  2. Adelina Eternal Return Nebbiolo 2014

    Adelina Eternal Return Nebbiolo 2014

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $23.99

    As low as: $23.00

    From a cooler vintage (than the inaugural 2013), the '14 spent less time in barrel and came out with all the elegance and detailed fruit you could home for. Bright as a button and, at this price, guaranteed to bring many happy returns.
    "If the spec was to produce a tasty, easy drinking Nebbiolo, that speaks of variety too, then the job's been done. Clean, fresh, strawberry and dusty spice, fennel and floral perfume, perhaps a little almond nougat too. Light bodied, gentle tannin, fresh and tasty, all red fruits and kitten's tongue tannin playing on the finish. It's not particularly long or intense, but is definitely very good to drink." 91 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, Apr 2016

  3. Bests Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Bests Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Regular Price: $26.99

    Special Price: $26.00

    As low as: $24.50

    95 points. “Medium to full-bodied with licorice, dark cherry and plum building the main tent of flavour; clove and eucalypt as the guy ropes; tannin stake it all firm. Outside of flavour descriptors the best way to describe this wine is to say: it will mature beautifully over 15-20 years but it’s going to prove extremely difficult to keep your hands from it, even now in its youth.” James Halliday 95 points

  1. Cirillo Estate the Vincent Grenache 2015

    Cirillo Estate the Vincent Grenache 2015

    Regular Price: $19.99

    Special Price: $18.99

    As low as: $18.50

    Its aroma is less overwhelmingly floral – instead it has a more savoury meatiness, with an underlying minerality and structure that begs to be examined. On the palate it shows the same sweet fruit but it finishes magnificently dry, with savoury spices, hints of cinnamon, clove and bitter cocoa. The tannins are small and grippy but incredibly smooth, and combined with and long, drawing acidity give it great length and a superb finish.


    It is a phenomenal wine for under $30 and should be on everyone’s go-to list for lighter, complex, and dangerously moreish South Australian reds. (Clear and Sober Counsel)

  2. Coriole Barbera 2015

    Coriole Barbera 2015

    Regular Price: $28.00

    Special Price: $26.50

    As low as: $25.00

    "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

  3. Coriole McLaren Vale Shiraz 2014

    Coriole McLaren Vale Shiraz 2014

    Regular Price: $28.00

    Special Price: $26.50

    As low as: $25.00

    The aroma is lifted with plum, mocha and spice. The palate is rich and complex with juicy red and black fruits, spice and integrated oak.


    An elegant full bodied style with depth and balance, typical of our ‘Estate Grown’ range. Confidently cellar this wine for 10 years.

  1. Coriole Sangiovese 2015

    Coriole Sangiovese 2015

    Regular Price: $28.00

    Special Price: $26.50

    As low as: $25.00

    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.

  • Dark Matter Spiced Rum

    Dark Matter Spiced Rum

    Regular Price: $90.00

    Special Price: $85.00

    As low as: $83.00

    In the glass, the quality and freshness of the ingredients create a huge whack of intense ginger, fruitcake and brown spice aromatics and the class of the molasses creates a texture and a finesse across the palate that is unique in spiced rum in our experience. This is not the only element of Dark Matter that is atypical for its category - the purity and balance of the spirit, the intensity of flavour and the refreshing and savoury, wildly spicy kick on the finish makes Dark Matter an ideal sipping Spiced Rum. It also marries beautifully in a Dark & Stormy, with a dry Ginger Beer (such as the StrangeLove Organic Ginger Beer) or simply with Strangelove’s Organic Smoked Cola and some fresh lime. No matter how it is served, Dark Matter offers a terrific drinking experience and has clearly set a new benchmark for Spiced Rum category.


    Or as the Dark Matter boys put it, “The taste equivalent of warping into a liquid black hole but without every atom in your body being crushed to an infinitely small point.”

  • Giant Steps Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2015

    Giant Steps Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2015

    Regular Price: $30.99

    Special Price: $28.99

    As low as: $28.00

    This is right in the slot. It’s lean and long, mostly, with grapefruit and citrus rind character drilling through to the flourish of the finish. Fuzzy peach and spiced wood characters are fringe players at most. It’s a highly disciplined chardonnay. It needs a year or two in bottle. Rated : 92 Points Winefront.com.au
