  1. Adelina Polish Hill River Riesling 2016

    Adelina Polish Hill River Riesling 2016

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $24.00

    As low as: $22.00

    Subtle white flower/vanilla bean perfume, fennel, stones, and mixed citrus (including tangerine) leads you in to a wine of immediate appeal and character. It’s lean and kind of bony, but delivers a lovely crunch of citrus, zinging but fine acidity, and a fine talc-like texture, which lends a lovely grip to the wine. Yum. Will cellar surely, I’d imagine."

    Adelina Watervale Riesling 2016

    Regular Price: $25.00

    Special Price: $24.00

    As low as: $22.00

    The mature Gulley View vineyard, on red loamy clay over limestone, historically supplied Leo Buring, maker of countless outstanding Rieslings in the past. The fruit is hand picked, whole-bunch pressed, fermented with a mix of indigenous and inoculated yeast and raised in stainless tanks. Crammed with mouth filling texture, stone fruit and apple notes and waterfall fresh acidity, this wine is not at all typically Clare in style; Col halts the ferment with around 7-8g/l residual sugar to balance the site's searing acidity. Just north of 200 cases of the scintillating 2016; what are you waiting for, people? Breakfast in bed?

    Regular Price: $33.00

    Special Price: $31.99

    As low as: $30.00

    This is a primal, untamed expression of pure Nebbiolo fruit


    Dark cherry, liquorice, violet and dried rose perfume. Medium bodied, fleshy and ripe, with layers of meaty and silky tannin, clean acidity, and an almost bubblegum perfume in the aftertaste. It's good fun now, though I reckon it will be much better with a couple of years in the cellar to let it settle down. What a bargain!

    Regular Price: $33.00

    Special Price: $30.00

    As low as: $29.50

    It’s a very young and slightly raw wine, and while it’s probably meant to be enjoyed young, I’d either throw it into a decanter for a couple of hours, or pop it in the cellar for another couple of years: it makes a big difference. Anyway, as at now, it’s red fruited and perfumed, showing some sweet aniseed and spice, along with a whiff of new leather. Medium bodied, brightly lit and vibrant, with red cherry and red berry flavours, light chalky tannin, and a long gently sweet finish that’s perfumed and very fine. Remarkable wine for the money. 93+ points Winefront.com.au

    Learning about Barolo, the PERFECT place to start! Let me know if you'd like some, but be quick. Won't Last!

    As low as: $29.50

    Perfumed with musk and roses, dusted with spice and cocoa, and full of fetching mixed red berry and red cherry flavour. Medium bodied, supple and mouth-filling, though light on its feet, acidity is fresh, and fine chalky tannin trails off on a long sweet and spicy finish. Drink now and over the next few years. It’s a great, and non-threatening, introduction to Northern Italian red wine."

    Regular Price: $28.50

    Special Price: $26.99

    As low as: $25.99
    Sourced from Frankland River, the 2013 Castelli Cabernet Sauvignon shows the purity and elegance this region is famous for. This is a medium-bodied wine, packed with impressive blackcurrant and chocolate flavours supported by fine tannins and impeccable structure. A super impressive Western Australian Cabernet, particularly at this price.

    Regular Price: $27.99

    Special Price: $27.00

    As low as: $26.50

    Full-bodied and full-flavoured. Lots of oak on offer here, spicy and cedary both, with grapefruit and fleshy yellow stone fruits to the fore. There’s a trace of funk and plenty of mouthfeel. It looks (colour-wise) reasonably advanced but other than it being a bigger style, it presents as fresh. It evolves well as it rests in the glass too. It all seems a bit too much at first but in the end, you’d have to say this performs pretty well.

  2. Castelli Estate Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2015

    Castelli Estate Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2015

    Regular Price: $19.99

    Special Price: $19.00

    As low as: $18.00

    This is a fine example of the quintessential Western Australian partnering of Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon. Light pale straw in colour. The nose is dominated by intense Sauvignon Blanc characters of passionfruit and greengage. The Semillon imparts a textured lemon zest influence and also some hints of cut grass. All of these flavours surround an intense herbaceous core. Extended lees contact and partial barrel fermentation has provided some background structure and mouthfeel with little aroma influence. This is a drier, more complex style than the typical examples of this blend, however the intense vibrancy is best enjoyed now or over the next 5 years.

    There’s talk that 2015 is one of the best vintages in Piedmont for quite some time, and that 2016 is even better. Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear. “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…”


    Black cherry, liquorice root, baking spices and potpourri. Medium bodied, supple and fleshy, almost juicy, then the Nebbiolo tannin extends its friendly and reassuring grip, slips in some savoury stuff like new leather, and closes with perfume and strong black tea flavour and texture. It needs some time in the decanter as a youngster, but still delivers
    a gorgeous hit of affordable Barbaresco should you fancy going in early. Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au

All of the McLaren Vale and plenty of the Cabernet Sauvignon too. Touch and go for 94 points.

    Wild yeast, a touch of mlf, a powerful hit of fruit flavour and the length to consummate it. This is an excellent wine to spend time with. On a bright line of acidity are hung quality fruit and oak. 95 points Campbell Mattinson Wine Companion.
    One sip and I was hooked. This is dangerously good. It’s the kind of chardonnay so many of us are looking for. Rich with flavour, sizzling with acidity, purring with length – and yet, all the while, harmonious. It’s complex without making a big deal of it.
    The combination of fruit and oak here is simply beautiful."

    Express Winemakers Tempranillo 2015

    Regular Price: $26.99

    Special Price: $26.50

    As low as: $25.00

    Sourced from one of Plantagenet’s vineyards. There’s rumour that it is one of the original new wave tempranillo plantings of the variety in Australia, potentially. Planted 1999 or so.


    Has some flesh, has lots of charm. Indeed, this is one of the great tempranillos of Australia. It’s packed with sinewy tannin, shrewd in dark fruit, coal and spice character through and through. Hugely aromatic, funk and wildness, a sip and it’s almost aggressive with you, yet it is deeply satisfying. No faking it’s worth or intent.

    As low as: $22.00

    This is intended to be the earlier drinking, more friendly Celtic Farm release. It’s also easier on the credit card.


    So much flavour and intensity packed into a wine of just 11% alcohol. Lemon and lime leaf, slate, spice and flowers. It’s all go. Chalky and juicy, bursts through the mouth, and finishes long with a tussle between lemon sherbet and dry flinty texture. Bang on the money.

    Regular Price: $39.50

    "I'm really liking the 2016 Rieslings from South Australia. This wine had been opened two days earlier (I’ve been away) and my wife reliably informs me that it’s much better now. I trust her judgement entirely. Girls are most often better at tasting wine than men, though they seem to lack the ‘Train Spotter’ gene which is responsible for the sometimes obsessive collector mentality found in many males. Offered as a broad generalisation/observation, of course.


    Beautiful perfume here – blossoms, lime and green apple – leading into a lean yet curiously flavoursome palate featuring a fine acidity, and very appealing slate and brick dust texture. Super length, finishing with a real lemonade tang (the intensity of flavour meant here, rather than sweetness). Smashing."

    As low as: $41.50

    Australian chardonnay is in a great place; so too is the Garagiste range.


    How powerful can a wine be before it loses its elegance? This tests the definition. It’s straw-coloured and powerfully flavoured and yet it floats and sings in harmony. It’s an elegant portrait of this wonderful white grape. It’s juicy with ripe nectarine and white peach, comes dripping with pear and fig, and cuts long with spicy, flinty, nutty goodness. There’s a rind-like character here, an extra bite to the flavour. It’s the icing on a gorgeous wine.

    Regular Price: $75.00

    Special Price: $68.99

    As low as: $65.00

    Only 60 dozen produced. i.e. rare as hen’s teeth. The 2013 was a pearler. The 2014?


    It’s even better. This is a magnificent pinot noir. I opened it late at night and immediately had to put it aside for the next day; it deserved better from me. This boasts the kind quality that makes you want to straighten your life out and be an improved person. It shines a light into you. It’s savoury, smoky, twiggy and powerful. It’s the earth risen up, the shirt of fruit torn open, the spice of life come to visit. It staggers with dryness, with herb, with smoke, a pathway of nutty oak branched between; but it slides with sour, ripe, succulent, satiny fruit.


    Tannin spins a perfect web. It’s a spell that binds. It’s my kind of wine. It may not be yours. I don’t care. It’s what great wine does: it takes concerns and flings them into the fast-moving wind. Rated : 97 Points Winefront.com.au

    Regular Price: $34.99

    As low as: $32.00

    ...... From a fabulous vintage and at the hand of Steve Flamstead, one of Australia’s best winemakers. It has all the right credentials and yet it tastes even better than it sounds. It is just the ticket. Cherry plum, crushed dry leaves, the most blessed slow-crash of tannin, herbage and black pepper, all carried along on a river of silk. Eucalypt and clove characters play side roles. 
    The sleeves of this wine are folded immaculately. It’s neat, tidy, contained. But it’s pure and beautiful; it sits in the glass with its heart wide open."

    This, for me at least, is textbook Barossa Shiraz. It’s perfumed and rosy, smooth with milk chocolate, raspberry and plum, light spicy oak framing the fruit beautifully. Medium bodied, silky and fine, melts on the palate and lays the charm on thick throughout. Turkish delight and gossamer fine tannin trails on a long fresh finish. Delightful."

Bramble fruit, grilled meat, very subtle cinnamon oak, medium bodied, lively and slightly sappy, fine emery tannin, with plenty of spice on a long cool finish. Savoury and lithe expression of Barossa Shiraz, and very nicely done too."

    Unusual sophistication at this price point for a Barossa Shiraz. .......blueberry and floral/apricot perfume, pan juices and crisp cut of acidity. Finish is dry, meaty and spicy, with a vapour trail of sweet blue fruit. Likely better again with another year in bottle.”
    92 points - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
    Immediately this is sexy, plush, purple wine. Swish modern Barossa Shiraz, with polish well above its pricepoint. Lavish plum and boysenberry fruit, coffee powder oak in the background, all in mid-weight and round form. .....the overall generosity and endless drinkability of this style makes it really quite more-ish.Nice wine and at a nice price. Best drinking: 2016-2025. 17.7/20, 92/100. 14%, $25. Ozwinereview

    The minute you put your nose to the glass you’re transported to the world of ‘fine wine’.
    This has clarity, precision and fairly glides through the palate. Red cherry, raspberry, dried roses, fine spicy biscuitty oak, clean earthiness, and almost a liquorice root succulence too, but throughout its signature is restraint and subdued power. Ultra-fine tannin shapes the wine surely like the firm stroke of an emery board, the acidity so pure and clean, and the finish long, crisply ironed and perfumed. Australian Pinot Noir eh? “You’ve come a long way baby.”

    This is a belter of a wine at the price. Hard to think of many at $22 that would cruise at this altitude. It’s assets aren’t in the reserved but dulcet perfume, but in the woosh of faintly chalky, juicy yet toned fruit that characterises the palate. It rushes through the mouth with refreshing appley fruit, yet there’s all sorts of detail in spice and nuts gathering through it. Long, tight, sleek yet mouthwatering,
    it’s got all the layers of upper crust fancy wines in a fun-loving package. Brilliant. Rated : 93+ Points Winefront.com.au

    "I’m putting it out there: this could be the best Pinot Gris in Australia.
    It’s rose gold in colour and that’s just the start of the fun. Subtle floral notes, nashi pear, whisper of musk, but the ‘fruitiness’ is dialled back and the ‘vinous’ parts are tuned up. Powdery tannin, and almost savoury to taste, with the cool acidity and pear, along with a peach tea-like refreshment. Perfect from front to back, complex and packed with personality. Hats off. Flat out delicious. This is how you make Pinot Gris."

    Regular Price: $23.50

    Special Price: $21.99

    This wine is a delightful purple red colour. The nose is fabulous, dark plums, blackberries, blueberries, with a slight dusting of icing sugar, exotic spices, and a savoury earthiness all mingled together. The palate is not a let down it's absolutely delicious, that plummy blackberry fruit, mingled with dark raspberries, pure fruited, long and lively. It has a real creaminess to the palate, great length, and really really fine tannins on the finish. The oak is well in the background, leaving all that wonderful organic fruit to do the work. 
    Given all the above, the wine is actually wonderfully medium bodied, as this style should be. This wine tastes like it should be $30 or more a bottle, it's that good. It is easily the best all of this line yet, and should become your house wine. Gavin Trott

    Regular Price: $40.99

    Special Price: $39.99

    As low as: $38.50

    Greenock Shiraz is deep purple-black in colour. Bright and lifted, the bouquet displays characters of blackberry, cherry, fruit cake, ripe plum, mocha and oriental spice. These ripe black fruit flavours continue to the powerfully flavoured full-bodied palate. 
    Driven by intense fruit purity, the palate is complimented with subtle oak barrel
     characters. The natural tannins are lightly chalky but fine adding structure to support the strong fruit. With layers of complexity this is a very pure but sophisticated wine of great balance that is completed by a solid lingering finish. Greenock is a complex Barossa Shiraz that has a long cellaring future.

Its supple tannins and engaging acidity ensure the wines ease in its youth without sacrificing the all important skeleton of structure required to reward drinkers for many years to come.
