  • Bleasdale Frank Potts 2012

    Star anise, cassis, plum and blackberry compote on the nose. This is a big Cab blend with excellent persistence and power. Acid pulls dark fruits through like a freight train. Give it a decant for an hour or so if you are getting stuck into it soon, or cellar for up to 20 years. Drinks even better on the second...

  • Blue Pyrenees Estate Red Blend 2007

    The Estate red uses the best fruit grown by Blue Pyrenees each year. This edition is rich, complex and offers great intensity. We’ve looked at it a few times on the tasting panel, each time impressed by it’s youthfulness and vibrancy of fruit. A cracker....

    Blue Pyrenees Estate Red Blend 2007

  • Blue Pyrenees Richardson Shiraz 2014

    With vineyard sites and microclimates established by French brand Remy Martin in the 60s, Blue Pyrenees know how to make wine. Berries blue and black dominate on the nose. Purple and red fruits folded into forest floor notes appear on the palate alongside mild oak treatment and complex tannins. A really classy drop that could age for another 5-10...

  • Chain of Ponds 'Novello' Dolcetto Shiraz 2016

    It’s a soft, smooth and eminently gluggable beast this, with quite plush fruit in a light to medium bodied framework. Looks like it should be drunk quickly but oddly enough is even better the following day. There’s red berries, spice, softness and savory tannins,...

  • Chateau Yaldara Reserve Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2013

    Lots of fruit purity here. There’s blue and confectionary from the Grenache, along with brooding darkness from the Mataro. Cue Shiraz with its chocolate and firm but fine tannins. Finishing with spice, this is complex and...

  • Dandelion Menagerie of the Barossa GSM 2014

    As the name suggests the varieties contained within fly well together. Loads of flavour, with sweet n savoury pushing each other on to greater heights. Fruit is very juicy, well suited to rare bbq...

  • d’Arenberg 'The Galvo Garage' Cabernet Blend 2013

    This is an extremely powerful Cabernet blend. It is intense, commanding and in need of a slab of meat to tame its intensity and tannins. It offers spice, chocolate, black fruits, assertively angular acidity and a truckload of fine tannins. Definitely needs decanting or a sleep for 10...

  • d’Arenberg d’Arry’s Original Shiraz Grenache 2014

    This wine is often described as rustic but we reckon that’s a touch unfair. We reckon this is a deliciously old-school red, with black fruits, plum and liquorice getting busy with spice and some serious tannins. Exceptionally complex for a sub $20 red and one that just keeps getting better the longer you leave it open. You could cellar this for another 10...

  • d’Arenberg The Laughing Magpie Shiraz Viognier 2012

    This is rich, chewy, dense and quite generously flavoured. There’s black fruits, pepper, coffee, liquorice and apricots. It’s complex, easy to drink and has the d’Arenberg trademark acid drive and fine tannin...

  • Irvine Eden Valley 'The Estate' Cabernet Blend 2015

    A deep bubbling pond of dark jam fruits and lifted herbal aromas, silky choc-oak spice, black olives, a dense and delicious 'port' like fruit intensity with a lingering finish and a touch of acid. This 91pt wine will respond to a few years in the sock drawer if you choose. Would play well with a beef fillet or rump steak....

  • Kilikanoon Meymans Shiraz Cabernet 2015

    This is a mighty big Shiraz Cab blend – Kilikanoon seem to have a knack of producing reds that are bigger than the average Clare bear. The fruit here is stunning, with black and blue berries, chocolate and nuts all wrapped up in a gloriously silken texture. Big, polished, silky and great drinking now, this should also cellar for up to 10...

  • Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet Merlot 2016

    Chocolate and mint here, along with blackcurrants and plum. It is medium bodied but packed with flavors of plum and dark chocolate and finishes with plenty of silky, fine grained tannins. It’s shy but welcoming to begin with and definitely worth...

  • Purple Hands Wines Mataro Grenache Shiraz 2016

    What a stunner – medium bodied but with a fruit intensity of a massive wine... could very easily be priced at $50 plus. Brightness of fruit, lusciousness and intensity here are all exceptional. Loads of black fruits, clove, cinnamon... this wine is an absolute belter....

  • Richard Hamilton Colton’s GSM 2016

    A delicious, crunchy and bright wine made slippery and decadent with its silken, gossamer like tannins. Quite a fruit bomb but in no way stewy, rather it is vibrant and intense showing raspberries, liquorice, cinnamon and black fruits. It definitely has the stuffing to cellar but is so delicious right now as to make such considerations pretty much...

    Richard Hamilton Colton’s GSM 2016

  • Wirra Wirra Original Blend Grenache Shiraz 2016

    Ethereal lifted cherry fruits hailing from the Grenache, blended with a pleasantly wide-berthing Shiraz for added depth. Soft and luscious mouth feel, but still savoury enough to be a great culinary contender. Pasta with rose sauce, salmon on the BBQ or your favourite Margherita pizza....
