A pretty flash selection bejewelled with 5 trophies, a stack of top golds, a sack full of gold medals, and storied with plenty of effusive words from worthy wine scribes. There’s Wicks trophy-winning sparkling which is made utilising the time-honoured ‘méthode champenoise’. This means it is aged on lees in bottle to build complexity and depth of flavour. Costs a lot of both money and time to produce sparkling this way but the results in this instance are undeniable. See also Turkey Flat’s multiple trophy-winning Rosé and an exceptional 95 point Clare Riesling from Kilikanoon. On the red front, a superb old vine McLaren Vale Grenache, stunning Barossa GSM, 2 delicious Cabernets and half a dozen awesome Shiraz from the Barossa, McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek. Included are the magnificent Stonehouse Neldner Old Vine Shiraz. This $150 a bottle Barossa Valley, old vine powerhouse inspired Kim Brebach to write ‘...big red with wonderful depth of fruit and tremendous concentration of flavour...’ and to score it a massive 97 points. Sam Kim also gave it 97. There’s also stunning 97 point Martins Limited Shiraz, 96 point Pertaringa Undercover Shiraz and Pasha’s epic, rich and fruit intense McLaren Vale Shiraz. This one retails for $100 a bottle and is in the running to be named Winestate magazine’s wine of the year.

    Adelaide Hills, SA
    96pts Max Crus, 94pts Kim Brebach, Gold, Top Gold and Trophy - Melbourne Royal Wine Show
    Truly a modern classic, this Adelaide Hills Sparkling is all about high quality fruit spending 4 years on lees to develop texture and complexity. There’s a full, rich mouthfeel and texture, and delicate toasty notes of warm honey, cumquat, truffle and tarragon underpinned by hints of pear and ginger. The length an intensity are fantastic.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    Gold Medal, 97pts Sam Kim, 94pts James Halliday, 95pts The Real Review, 95pts Bob Campbell
    This is unequivocally an even better edition of the Martin’s than we have seen previously, which is perhaps no surprise given it is a product of the 2018 vintage. Again, we see relatively low alcohol for a big Aussie red which, perhaps counterintuitively, allows the wine to appear as more fruit dense and concentrated than it might if it were half a degree or a full degree more ‘potent’. Fruits are blacks and blues, depth and length are superb, cedar and vanilla are a perfumed accompaniment to the fruit rich nose, and the tannins, polished, waxy and plentiful. The overall package, outstanding!
    Barossa Valley, SA
    97pts Kim Brebach, 97pts Sam Kim, 95pts Wine Pilot
    Handpicked grapes from an 80-year-old contoured vineyard in Gomersal. Long slow fermentation including 10% whole bunch over 10 days before basket pressing into 30% new French and 70% older oak. A spicy and brightly fruited nose leads to a palate with exceptional concentration and structure. Red fruits, black fruits, compote, coffee grounds, plum, star anise, cocoa powder, black tea and fine, powdery tannins to finish. Really beautifully balanced.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    95pts Huon Hooke, 95pts Sam Kim, 94pts Kim Brebach, 92pts The Real Review
    Produced from 120-year-old bush vines, this is an exceptionally concentrated wine. Dark fruits are bolstered with red as the wine straddles the line between confection and good black stuff and the wine finishes with super fine tannins. Superb.
    1 x Pasha McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018 (RRP $100.00)
    McLaren Vale, SA
    Gold Medal, 96pts Winestate, 95pts Ned Goodwin, 95pts Kim Brebach, 96pts Sam Kim, 93pts James Halliday
    This is thrilling! It’s old-school but perfectly balanced. ‘Tis packed with uber ripe, suppurating black fruits, dark cherry, compote, notes of furniture polish and spice, black pepper, chocolate, tobacco, and leather. The richness is tamed with good acidity, providing a backbone for all that expressiveness to hang on to and in so doing, show to best effect. Stunning!
    Barossa Valley, SA
    94pts Kim Brebach, 94pts Sam Kim, 92pts James Halliday
    The Lienert’s have been farming in the Barossa for 150 years and decided to add some vines to their property about 20 years ago. The first fruit from 2004 and 2005 vintages went straight to the pool room, aka into Penfold’s St Henri. Funnily enough they then planted a lot more vines and introduced many more clonal variations of Shiraz. When they decided to start making booze, we conspired with them to come up with a wine from the best parcels of their best seven clonal selections of Shiraz. The intention – to make a wine which is floral and beguiling on the nose, densely fruited on the palate, long, complex and bloody awesome. For this very special wine, each clone was harvested and fermented separately (you can see details on the clones below!) with the harvest date chosen to allow each grape to express its best characters. The case of EVOS12 (Eden Valley clone) was harvest earlier than the others to allow for a beautiful perfume and liveliness in the final wine. Fermentation is done in tiny open top fermenters which are hand plunged up to four times a day. Certain clones are fermented cooler to better express delicate aromatics whilst some are plunged and pumped over to achieve a more structural element. The trick is finding the right balance. Anyways, we love this wine and encourage you to give it a rip.
    Langhorne Creek, SA
    93pts Kim Brebach, 93pts Wine Pilot, 93pts Sam Kim, 91pts Real Review
    A quality, medium bodied Shiraz sourced from 50 year old Langhorne Creek vines. Juicy red fruits are bolstered by good acidity. The wine finished with vanilla, spindles of oak and fine tannins.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    Rich, ripe, smooth and instantly appealing with black plum, cedar, spices and chocolate. Just full bodied, but with plenty of lushness, this is super easy to drink.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    96pts Ken Gargett
    A stunning wine and a remarkable bargain. Hot off 96 points from wine Pilot who tasted this blind and expected it to be an $80-$100 bottle. It is rich and long, packed with black fruits, chocolate, cassis, blackberries, cedar and finished with plenty of fine tannins.
    1 x Turkey Flat Rosé 2021 (RRP $25.00)
    Barossa Valley, SA
    97pts, Gold Medal and Top Gold Medal - 2021 Royal Adelaide Wine Show, Piper Alderman Trophy for Best Rosé in Show, 94pts Winefront, 95pts Q Wine, 2x Gold Medal, 2x Trophy, Top Gold
    A pale pink Rose presenting strawberries, spice, musk, talc and white blossoms. Red fruits are both sweet and tart and complexed by a creamy texture and a persuasive line of acidity and salinity. Lip smacking!
    Langhorne Creek, SA
    93pts Kim Brebach, 93pts Sam Kim, 92pts Wine Pilot
    A beautifully fragrant and mouthwatering nose laden with violets, blackcurrants and dried oregano leads to a voluptuous palate. This is pristine, varietally perfect, medium bodied Cabernet. A joy to drink by itself and with lamb dishes.
    Clare Valley, SA
    95pts Sam Kim, 93pts Wine Pilot
    Whilst 2020 was a challenging growing season and yields were very low, fruit quality and concentration were excellent, even exemplary. This first edition Kilikanoon Meyman’s Riesling is indeed exemplary, offering a wonderful fragrance, flavours built around pristine lemons and lime, great texture and exceptional length.
    South Australia
    A big, rich and varietal Cabernet, replete with violet and black fruit aromas. The palate offers plenty of ripe blackcurrant and blackberries, a whisper of cedar and finished with fine tannins. Oh so easy to drink.
