2020 TWR Sauvignon Blanc2020 TWR Sauvignon BlancThe intensity and freshness here is hard to beat in this hotly contested category, and the intensity of peach, green-mango, lime and grapefruit flavors is impressive. Long, juicy and mouthwateringly fresh. Drink or hold. Screw cap. 93 points. Nick Stock,$30.00
2020 Stefano Lubiana Primavera Chardonnay2020 Stefano Lubiana Primavera Chardonnay$36.00
2019 Louis Michel Chablis2019 Louis Michel ChablisFrom six plots, now blended. Pale green reflections. Stones with, some flesh on the bones. Actually despite the volume this has maintained its classicism. Pure long and detailed. A certain weight and warmth at the finish. Decent yield and more classical approach. Under 13% I am told. 87-89 points. Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy $64.00 $57.60
2018 Yeringberg Cabernets2018 Yeringberg CabernetsBeautiful perfume of dried flowers, sweet tobacco and spice, blackcurrant and redcurrant, even almond meal. Dense and dark, with a smattering of dried herb, ripe cherry, crisp acidity, firm grainy tannin, and a distinctly ‘mineral’ and savoury finish of exemplary length. It’s a textbook example of superb Yarra Valley Cabernet. 96 points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front$98.00
2018 Pierre Amadieu Côtes-du-Rhône 'Roulepierre' Rouge2018 Pierre Amadieu Côtes-du-Rhône 'Roulepierre' RougeDelivers a vibrant and tasty mouthful of flavour. I’m thinking ripe raspberry, some spice and liquorice, a smattering of dried herb, fine powdery tannin, fresh, a little dark chocolate on a finish of solid length. Easy-going, and good drinking. 90 points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front$25.00
2020 Punt Road Pinot Gris2020 Punt Road Pinot GrisA few hours skin contact, some old oak, and a jolly good hard pressing, to wring out some more flavour. Good Gris. Ripe brown pear, vanilla and white flowers, something like aniseed or liquorice in the mix too. It’s a little bit spicy, soft and cool feeling, quite juicy, subtle pear skin texture, and finishes well. Slight smokiness about it, though working as a positive. 90 points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front $24.00
2018 Philippa Farr Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir2018 Philippa Farr Mornington Peninsula Pinot NoirMedium red colour with a trace of purple. There are earthy, savoury, foresty aromas as opposed to primary fruit, the palate solid and a little straightforward, but it has depth and concentration, and probably just needs time to develop its full potential. Good tannin spine. Very long. Highly promising, but give it time. 95 points. Huon Hooke, The Real Review $55.00Out of stock
2017 Yeringberg Cabernets2017 Yeringberg CabernetsDeep, bright red colour with a good tint of purple. The bouquet has mulberry, violet and cranberry aromas, quite multi-faceted, while the palate is bright and concentrated, with a lovely array of flavours. It's very complex and detailed with floral, spice and berry flavours galore. The tannins are fine and insistent and run the full length of the palate. This is sheer class. 96 points. 96 points. Huon Hooke, The Real Review$98.00
2018 Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz2018 Glaetzer Bishop ShirazAll Shiraz, all from the Ebenezer section of the northern Barossa, the 2018 Bishop Shiraz is a super value in the context of Barossa, and Australian Shiraz in general. Matured in only 5% new oak hogsheads, it delivers bountiful cherry and raspberry fruit, accented by hints of mocha and cola. It's medium to full-bodied, plump and juicy, fruity and lush, but reined in by firm, savory tannins on the long, mouthwatering finish. It should drink well for up to a decade. 92 points. Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate $37.00
2019 Chalmers Rosato2019 Chalmers RosatoMade mostly from Aglianico, with decent splashes of Nero d'Avola and Sagrantino. And the Aglianico is fermented in barrel, which explains the wine's lovely creamy texture. It's also vibrant, laced with bright spicy fruit and lemony acidity. The essence of summer in a glass. 93 points. Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion 2021$28.00
2017 Balnaves The Blend2017 Balnaves The BlendMerlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot. Classic stuff from great Balnaves mob. What a brilliant wine this is – such ease and charm. Whiffs of blueberry, green herbs, eucalyptus, white pepper. Medium bodied at perfect level, cassis and dark berry flavours, eucalyptus and pepper again, lithe and fine tannins, excellent length and a general sense of succulence. Really punches above its weight. So lovely! What easy charm! Insane value. 93 points. Mike Bennie, The Wine Front $23.00
