Lots of cola, aniseed and cloves on the nose, in this wine from Mount Avoca. The palate reflects this and builds with blackberries, coffee bean and liquorice. There’s a good whack of acidity here too, keeping everything fresh and bright, pushing fruit forward to a long finish.

Leconfield Syn Sparkling Coonawarra Rosé

This wine from Leconfield & Richard Hamilton Wines, McLaren Vale the Syn Sparkling Coonawarra Rosé, is a slightly pink wine. It’s labelled rosé but to us seems much more like a traditional cool climate Chardy Pinot sparkling and a bloody good one at that. It has a very fine bead, aromas of stonefruit and red fruits along with a little brioche. Flavours follow suit and introduce cherries and a creamy aspect. This is delicious. 

You can read more about this wine HERE.

Heirloom Vineyards Alcala Grenache 2020

The Heirloom Vineyards Alcala Grenache 2020 is a relatively big and rich Grenache offering red fruits, woodsmoke and lavender on the nose. The palate is full, loaded with blackberries, red fruits, savoury aspects and herbs. Needs decanting or cellaring.

You can read more about this wine HERE.

Chalk Hill Clarendon Syrah 2018

The Chalk Hill Wines Clarendon Syrah has been awarded 97 points from Halliday, for this temperate climate Shiraz sourced from an exceptional vineyard in Clarendon. Clarendon is actually part of McLaren Vale and is a little higher above sea level and cooler than the McLaren average. The result is a longer ripening time and the ability to tease higher fruit intensity and purity at a slightly lower alcohol level. This brings balance; critical for enjoyable early drinking, and longevity to the wine. So whilst this is superb already it should still be drinking well in 2050 if stored well. Black cherries, white pepper, blue and black fruits, spice, licorice, and fine-grained tannins mark this as a wine of poise and class.

Martins Vineyard Limited McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018

This wine from Curtis Family Vineyards 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!

You can read more about this wine HERE.

Lienert Vineyards 'Sieben Klon' Barossa Valley Shiraz 2019

Longview Macclesfield Grüner Veltliner 2021 

The Longview Vineyard Macclesfield Grüner Veltliner 2021 is an extraordinarily complex wine. This is prettily perfumed with juniper, white pepper, pear, apple, guava and a waft of cinnamon wending their way through your olfactories. The palate is textural, slightly grainy and long with a decent whack of acid coiling around the fruit and generating a sense of life and energy. Sorry, this product is not available individually, but you can get it in The 2021 Official Royal Adelaide Wine Show Dozen - Mixed HERE.

Stonehouse Neldner Vineyard Barossa Valley Icon Shiraz 2020

The StoneHouse Neldner Vineyard Barossa Valley Icon Shiraz is 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.

Lienert Vineyards 'Sieben Klon' Barossa Valley Shiraz 2019

Lienert Vineyards have been farming in the Barossa for 150 years and decided to add some vines to their property about 20 years ago.


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.


This wine made the top ten in our best sellers of 2021, so make sure to grab your bottle HERE.

Leo Buring Clare Valley Dry Riesling  2021

The Leo Buring, Clare Valley Dry Riesling 2021 has a classic nose of lime, lemon and talcum powder. The acidity is high but well countered by a generous mouthfeel. The palate is awash with lemons and limes, length and persistence are both excellent.
