2021 TWR Sauvignon Blanc2021 TWR Sauvignon Blanc

Vibrant, pure fresh and varietal bouquet with aromas of sweet lemon and sage, red apple and fresh basil, white peach, quince and stone mineral complexity. Satin texture as the wine touches the palate with a core of fruit and contrasting youthful acid line. Salivating and slightly salty, mineral, plush and dry on the finish. Some of this wine is fermented in oak – delivery a layer of complexity and depth. A delicious wine, pure in expression, balanced, youthful and well made. Best drinking from 2021 through 2026+.

2019 Yeringberg Cabernets2019 Yeringberg Cabernets55/13/10/10/9% Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc/Merlot/Petit Verdot/Malbec, all up 23 months in oak with 38% new French barriques. This was tasted less than a month after it was bottled and while it’s a very fine Yeringberg with its beauty on show, it’s reserved and needs time to adjust and settle. Everything is in sync. Lovely aromas of violets, autumn leaves, mulberries and more. The medium-bodied palate is layered with fine, textural tannins, dazzled with fresh acidity and exceptional length. 97 points. Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion 2022$107.00
2021 Stefano Lubiana Primavera Chardonnay2021 Stefano Lubiana Primavera ChardonnayTypically a very good times Chardonnay done in a traditional fashion. Shirts all tucked in. Certified biodynamic. Ticks all the boxes for quality chardy. Stone fruits fragrant, saline mineral character energetic, toasty-gentle oak seasoning lending a hand. A juiciness, a light creaminess, a bright starburst of pulpy grapefruity acidity to follow. Tip top, wonderful drinking. Excellent. 93 points. Mike Bennie, The Wine Front $40.00

NV Airlie Bank Yarra Rosé SparklingNV Airlie Bank Yarra Rosé SparklingThe NV Airlie Bank Rosé Sparkling is a blend of 82% Chardonnay and 18% Pinot Noir- sourced from within the Yarra Valley.

2019 Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz2019 Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz

The 2019 Bishop Shiraz is all Shiraz and all from the Ebenezer district of the northern Barossa Valley. Aged almost exclusively in second, third and fourth use oak (mostly French), it features slight herbal overtones to the black cherry and black olive notes. It’s medium to full-bodied on the palate, supple, generous and reasonably concentrated, folding in hints of peppery spice and mocha shadings on the velvety, mouthwatering finish.

2018 Balnaves The Blend2018 Balnaves The Blend

Combines 54/34/9% Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc and the all-important 1% glug of petit Verdot. Reflecting its regional bearings brilliantly and a bargain to boot. Florals, red fruits, just a hint of raspberry confectionary and no shortage of spices either. Medium bodied at best, a coating of furry ripe tannins and sweet fruit crossing to a savouriness.

2019 Pierre Amadieu Côtes-du-Rhône 'Roulepierre' Rouge2019 Pierre Amadieu Côtes-du-Rhône 'Roulepierre' RougeShow-stopping value and quality again from this most reliable of southern Rhône producers. Laced with earth and spice, its juicy bouquet of cranberries, blood plums and cherries precedes a long, richly flavoured and textural palate of crunchiness and brightness. Red and blue fruits framed by mouth-coating tannins drive long and impactful towards a faintly meaty, savoury and liquorice-like finish that becomes more mineral with aeration. Delicious! Jeremy Oliver, Gourmet Traveller WINE$25.00
2021 Punt Road Pinot Gris2021 Punt Road Pinot GrisThe 2021 Punt Road Napoleone Vineyard Pinot Gris is our crunchy and textural white. It gets a few hours' skin contact after harvest, and is then pressed through to extract Nashi-pear phenolics. 15% of the wine is fermented naturally in old hogsheads. The rest is in tank on full solids. Vegan friendly. Vinous and delicate, savoury fresh fruit lines and minerality. - Tim Shand, Punt Road$24.00
