    1 x Oliver's Taranga Shiraz 2020 (RRP $30.00)
    McLaren Vale, SA
    95pts Ken Gargett, 94pts Jeni Port, 91pts James Halliday
    A beautifully silky Shiraz with all the trimmings. Bramble and succulent dark fruits, interlaced with trademark Vale chocolate hits are pinned together with delicious savoury herbs and spices that are all finished with fine tannins and perfect length.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    2 x Gold Medals, 94pts James Sucking, 93pts James Halliday
    A beautifully soft, savoury and complex red. Lots of red and black fruits, chocolate, plums, herbs, cloves and fine tannins. A lovely ‘welcome home’ glass which goes very nicely with dinner too.
    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.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    95pts Kim Brebach, 94pts Sam Kim
    A truly beautiful and fruit driven blend of Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz. The Grenache here brings spice, confected notes, raspberries, rhubarb and sour cherry. The Mataro offers chocolate, brooding brambles and other slightly angry things sourced from dungeons deep. The Shiraz brings blue and black fruits, chocolate and fine, fine tannins. It’s a mad mélange this, one we’ll tip our hat to, whilst asking for it to be filled.

    95pts Sam Kim, 93pts Wine Pilot
    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 and Grenache. This Grenache is a brilliant amalgam of fragrance and grunt, thanks to the careful clonal selection and extensive blending trials undertaken before settling on the final ‘just right blend’. Whilst called Sieben Klon (Seven Clones) the Grenache actually includes 8 separate clones... as follows. BVRC38 – This is one of the nursery clones and has proved to be a great backbone, a bit of a goldilocks, Just right. Lovely red fruits, balance, mid weight and acidity. Simple and clean, not overly complex but blends well with everything... 30% of this clone was whole bunch fermented. Vine Vale Ancestor 1854 – This one is a bit more beastly, darker fruit spectrum and fuller richer palate, still plenty of subtlety but with some beautiful earthen tones. McLaren Vale High Sands – Without picking favourites this one is a beauty, lifted aromatics, mid weight, fine tannins, complex and saline edge, ocean mist. Ethereal Greenock Moppa Selection – Cuttings were taken from the Moppa foothills behind the town of Greenock. This clone is quite unique in its structure as well as noticeably darker colour than most, while still retaining a vibrant fruit character. Ebenezer Selection –This clone is elegant and complex, with a finely tuned tannin profile and lifted red fruit. Langhorne Creek Selection– This clone retains wonderful acidity and has a piercing fruit and aromatic profile, the odd one out as picked much earlier ~1.5-2 weeks before the others. Krondorf Selection– High end lifted fragrance and bouncy jubey fruit, as well as an underlying savouriness which rounds out the palate nicely.

    94pts James Halliday, 93pts Sam Kim
    We have long been fans of Claymore. The Dark Side of the Moon is their best and most underpriced wine, offering spice, dark fruits, raspberries, concentration and plenty of fine tannins. As always, there is a smoothness and polish to this wine which belies its sub $30 price point.
    Clare Valley, SA
    94pts Wine Pilot
    A varietally fragrant, medium-bodied, and intensely fruited Cabernet from the Kilikanoon stable. Violets, black cherries, and blackcurrants announce themselves on the nose and then invite themselves in to lie on a plush bed of tannin fluffed atop a selection of gorgeous cedar. A superb Cab from perhaps the Clare Valley's finest producer.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    96pts Wine Pilot, 95pts James Halliday, 93pts Real Review
    What a stunner- crunchy redcurrants, raspberries, white pepper, and cherries in a generously textural setting, supported by cleansing acidity and framed by fine tannins. Medium bodied but powerfully fruited, this is an exceptional Grenache.
    Clare Valley, SA
    95pts Wine Pilot, 94pts Kim Brebach
    A wonderfully old fashioned style of Shiraz this, aged in old oak and released at 5 years of age – ready to drink! This is balanced and fresh, offering dark fruits, savoury notes, cherries, liquorice, middle eastern spices, white pepper and eucalyptus. Drink any time over the next 10 years.

    Kilikanoon’s Covenant is created from fruit from Kilikanoon’s best vineyards and their top growers. It is a concentrated and poised wine offering plum, blue fruit, chocolate, liquorice, and herbs. This already drinks well and should improve for a decade.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    An almost perfectly realized blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro, packed with red, blue and black fruits. There’s nutmeg, cocoa, plums, fig and a hint of coffee. Excellent palate weight and smoothness. A joy to drink!

    94pts Sam Kim
    A single vineyard Shiraz which is big, rich and packed with oak and spice. Plenty of plums, chocolate and vanilla here. Super easy drinking.
