  1. Yalumba Vine Vale Grenache 2021
    Yalumba Vine Vale Grenache 2021
    This old vine Grenache was crafted from two blocks on our Tri-Centenary Vineyard, planted in 1949 and 1929, in the tiny Barossa Valley subregion of Vine Vale. The vineyard features deep sandy loam layers underlain with red-brown clay. These soils tend to be deep, holding an abundance of water that is essential for early season growth. With careful management, these dry grown, low organic matter soils can consistently produce outstanding quality fruit. YALUMBA

  1. Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021
    Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021
    A poker face to start, a cool and delineated nose of spiced black cherries, red plums and moss entice you in. A composed core starts slowly to unfurl and you get a sense of the tension and life in this wine. It's youthful and linear, a skeleton of fine silty tannins ribs the core of fruit; blackberry compote, rose petals, rosemary and white pepper. After a few hours in the bottle, its linearity starts to unravel and silken layers of fruit and tannins emerge. Its power builds. This captures the beguiling nature of pinot perfectly, revealing only what it wants when it wants to. Give this a few years at least in the cellar, it's one of the best Aussie pinots we've seen in recent years. A real royal flush. GABRIELLE POY

  1. Maire & Fils Grand Mineral Pinot Noir 2020
    Maire & Fils Grand Mineral Pinot Noir 2020
    Even if Henri Maire embodied for years the emblematic figure of the Jura wines, several generations have been necessary to patiently built one of the largest and greatest estates in the area, focused on key appellations such as Château-Chalon, l'Étoile and Arbois. The Domaine MAIRE & Fils covers nowadays 218 hectares of vines producing all the area grapes varieties.

  1. Boris Champy Pommard En Bouef 2020
    Boris Champy Pommard En Bouef 2020

    The 2020 Pommard En Boeuf, matured in 50% new oak, is quite backward on the nose and demanded encouragement from the glass, gradually, reluctantly unfolding with slightly earthy black fruit, hints of Earl Grey and tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, fine acidity, touches of sage and white pepper, the 50% whole bunch beautifully integrated on the finish. What a lovely Pommard, one that is Premier Cru level in all but name. NEAL MARTIN, vinous.com

    13 barrels made, using one third new wood, two thirds one year old and vinified with 50% whole bunches. The lieu dit will be marked on the label this year. Glowing purple. A lively and delicious fruit, supple, with a gorgeous ripe raspberry, carries through really well, elegance and grip with a fair amount of new wood, which it can carry. JASPER MORRIS MW

about us

Maybe its easiest to start with who and what we are not! We are not a supermarket, discount chain, lowest-common-denominator liquor outlet.  In some ways we are not even a retailer who could be selling anything; tyres, widgets or beanie boos! We can only sell one thing…WINE!

What we are is an independently owned wine merchant, driven by our collective passion to source and share some of the greatest wines in the world with a similarly passionate group of punters…many of which are now friends and part of the PWS family.

There are two owners: Michael McNamara and Alex Wilcox (and their long-suffering wives) and together with 42 other committed (or perhaps should be committed) staff they run three wine retail outlets in South Melbourne and Sydney as well as a wine bar/restaurant Bellota and a wine cellarage business called Liquid Assets. In addition to this educate and have, for some years, now run the benchmark WSET qualification in Victoria and NSW and a suite of more informal courses written by the ourselves and our staff.

We import from a strong portfolio of producers from France, Italy, New Zealand and California that reflect our love of wines that are made by people who share our passion for great wine and wines that reflect their place.

So without getting too carried away and to put it succinctly, we love drinking, selling, talking about and being in and around wine.

Who else would you wanna buy wine from! 

Founded by Alex Wilcox and Michael McNamara.
