  1. Weihenstephaner Dunkel 500ml
    Weihenstephaner Dunkel 500ml

    Our dark wheat beer is impressive with its creamy white foam. A fruity-fresh sweetness and hints of mature bananas harmonise with delicious flavours of roasted malt, sparkling and full-bodied with a light caramel taste on the first sip. An excellent accompaniment from hearty meals and game to chocolate and nut desserts. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

    Weihenstephaner Kristal 500ml
    In our golden-yellow crystal-clear wheat beer the fresh citrus flavour harmonises very well with spicy banana notes. The fine sparkling gives it a tangy and animated appearance. Throughout summer and winter, it’s a prickling experience. It goes well with fish, seafood, white meat or it can be enjoyed as an aperitif. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

  3. Gunderloch Fritz Riesling 2020
    Gunderloch Fritz Riesling 2020

    How do they do it? This has been a PWS favourite for some time now and it never fails to deliver. Made by Rheinhessen legends Gunderloch with vineyards  close to the Rhines south-east steep slopes. The combination of the red slate soil, the proximity to the river, the exposure to the sun and the steepness of the vineyards - are perfect for producing wonderful ripeness. If you are a German riesling fan it would be hard to beat this for the sheer quality and insane value it represents.

    The wine shows lovely stone fruit, peach and pithy characters as it opens in the glass. There is a salty mineral hit to that is really lovely. The fresh natural acidity zip through the ripe and spice flecked palate while a little aromatic lift gives this some real interest. Dry, fresh and full of character. PWS

  4. Morgado de Silgueiros Tinto 2015
    Morgado de Silgueiros Tinto 2015
    Adega de Silgueiros produces wines that punch above their weight. For a long time considered a go to producer for great value wines. Using all the typical red Dao varieties of Touriga Nacional, Jaen, Alfrocheiro and Tinta Roriz, their wines display the typical red, blue and black fruit characters of these varieties. The Dao has a very particular character due to the higher altitudes and iconic granite soils. Juicy, pretty, structured and a super performer at this price point. Dao at its most accessible. I am always impressed how Portuguese wines often manges to get such fruity instensity but manage to stay vibrant and fresh. This is no wilting flower mind you but given the climate of the region it always has a lovely light touch to it.

  5. Honorio Rubio Tremendus Clarete 2018
    Honorio Rubio Tremendus Clarete 2018
    Honorio works in a specific sector of Rioja - the Najerilla Valley, which favours high quality Garnacha. He is both a conservator of marginal historical styles, notably the Clarete pinks of which he is the leading proponent, and also an innovator working at the margins of textural enhancement in both Viura whites and Claretes.

    Claretes have been extremely important wines in Spanish history - most of Ribera del Duero, nearly all of DO Cigales and a lot of Rioja and Bierzo has been about the production and consumption of Claretes (historically, red and white grapes co-fermented in open concrete vats and aged for as much as a year in caves). However, contemporary appellations no longer have a legal definition/classification available for such a style.

    50/50 Viura i Garnacha, the look is vibrant see-through ('Clar' or clear being Clarete's defining thing!) raspberry pink. There are red rose petals, ruby grapefruit and a whack of chalky builder's lime soil aroma. There's a big hit of Saké, like polished rice washed with wild strawberry. The palate is full, open and soft on entry then a blood orange skin tannin-acid brings the zap and tang. The phenolics tuck in the middle and a squeak of builder's lime comes to finish the job. Texture yields to a wildly exciting, flavourful-perfumed acidity. PWS

  6. Casa da Passarella a Descoberta Dao Tinto 2017
    Casa da Passarella a Descoberta Dao Tinto 2017
    Made in stone lagars and aged in cement tanks along with some large old wooden vats, it's a very typical DÂ o blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz (elsewhere, Tempranillo), Alfrocheiro and Jaen (aka Mencia). 13.5% a/v, ta 5.96 ph 3.60. A Descoberta means 'to be discovered' and the somewhat mystical label, a box tagged 1942 is a folkloric reference to an early version of a time capsule a box hidden in the stone walls of the house of Passarella containing a will to be opened 50 years hence and directing the riches of the box be re-distributed to the poor. The box was empty. Enrichment comes from the intangible not the material, it seems.

    A lovely wine supple, fleshy and spicy, with extra delicate tannin and oak. From lead-off, the cherry-chocolate fruit really shows the Dao granite, and is laden with wiry dark herbs. In the mouth, it's fleshy-meaty and mineral fresh - round with good movement and fruit-earth interplay. It has excellent presence in the mouth but is not reliant on weight for the show. Wonderfully composed, it sits and radiates, effortless in affect. Gorgeous delicate tannin is the frame, rimming the mouth and allowing the fruit and spicy acid to radiate delicately. A wonderful advertisement for varietal blends.

  7. ROCIM ‘Mariana’ Tinto, Alentejo 2019
    ROCIM ‘Mariana’ Tinto, Alentejo 2019
    Herdade do Rocim is an estate located between the towns of Vidigueira and Cuba, in the Lower Alentejo, inland from the Setúbal Peninsula. ROCIM is the project of a couple (in life as well as work), Catarina Vieira and Pedro Ribeiro. They have a 120 hectare estate with 70 hectares of vineyards and another 10 of olive trees. Catarina is the owner and founder of the estate, and started the project with her father, Jose Ribeiro Vieira, in 2000. Pedro worked in Port production in the Douro after graduating as a winemaker, and then worked in Australia for two years at Hardy's Tintara. After returning from Australia, he joined Catarina at Herdade de Rocim.

    Touriga Nacional, Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet and Trincadeira are manually harvested in
    12kg crates. At the winery, grapes are sorted, fully destemmed and gently crushed. After a
    period of cold maceration, fermentation takes place in small stainless steel tanks at 24°C,
    and the wines ages 6 months in French oak. 14% abv. Total acidity 5.6. PH 3.65.

    Deep ruby colour. Mace spice relieves the vanilla and black cherry density you expect here.
    Fluid, with good presence, but balanced without any sense of heftiness. Soft, dry, shapely,
    with nice structure, fresh, clean and great value. PWS

  8. Grahams 10yo Tawny Port 200ml
    Grahams 10yo Tawny Port 200ml
    An intensely dry, concentrated, powerful wine that tastes as if it has wines in the blend that are older than 10 years. It is powered with acidity and its firm structure. Yet it is definitely a 10-year-old in style, as the fresh fruit to finish confirms. ROGER VOSS, Wine Enthusiast

    Mid bright tawny colour. Light nose. Raisiny fruit but not that vital. A bit low key. Dry, treacley finish. Beautiful packaging... Much drier than the Taylor's version. But actually with lots of interest and more obvious wood-aged character. JANCIS ROBINSON

    Dirk Niepoort, whose family has been making Port since 1842, is now considered one of the top producers of high-end Douro wine. STEPHEN TANZER, Stephen Tanzers international Wine Guide

    Juicy, perfumed and smelling of sweet ripe strawberries with hints of more savoury notes. If you wanted to write a note on what ruby Port should be, this wine would be a good benchmark to start. ROSCOE PWS

    Esporao Quatro Castas 4 2015
    Since it was founded in 1267, the boundaries of Herdade do Esporão have remained virtually unchanged. Located 180 kms from Lisbon, deep in the Alentejo, in Reguengos de Monsaraz.
    The team is led by David Baverstock. Ex - Roseworthy and Penfolds before heading to Portugal to work at icon wineries such as Graham's, Quinta do Crasto and has taken Esporao to the title of Winery of the Year twice and has himself been named Winemaker of the Year twice, including this year.

    Poor, stony soils and a tough summer climate that brings hot days and cool nights, followed by a harsh winter. Esporão currently has 194 different varieties planted, of which 37 account for virtually all production.

    This is always a blend of the 4 best grapes of any vintage and changes from year to year in both compsition and percentages.

  11. Georg Breuer Rudesheim Estate Riesling 2016
    Georg Breuer Rudesheim Estate Riesling 2016
    The 2016 Rheingau Riesling Rüdesheim "Estate" is super clear, bright and elegant on the nose, with lovely stony-mineral notes, almost stone dust but also beautiful concentration. On the palate, this is a round, juicy, very fruity but clear, piquant, well-structured and finely mineral Rheingau classic at 11.5% alcohol. It drinks perfectly today and will also do so over the next 15 to 20 years. Sweetness and acidity are in perfect balance here (8.4 grams per litre). A highly filigreed and delicate Riesling.

    Wittmann Estate Riesling 2020
    Wonderful peach, melon and floral nose. Concentrated, racy and filigree with intense, chalky minerality at the long, polished and playful finish. STUART PIGOTT, jamessuckling.com

    Gorgeously juicy little number that delivers ample punch and intensity as it races across the palate. So primary and full of life right now that it's a joy to drink at this early stage. Pithy, grippy, mineral and enlivening, this is yet another exemplary estate Riesling from the master. As completely delicious as it is now I would like to see it in a decade or so, but opening one now, or in fact at any time in its evolution, won't be a shame. Ripping wine. ROSCOE

  13. Quinta do Ameal Loureiro 2019
    Quinta do Ameal Loureiro 2019
    The 2019 Loureiro, tasted with about 10 weeks in bottle, is the winery's classic version—meaning "unoaked." It comes in at 11.3% alcohol, less than 1.5 grams of sugar and 7.4 of total acidity, a big change from last year's more alcoholic and lower-acid profile. This, to me, is a nicer profile for this wine in theory, but I'm not yet sure it will realize its potential. It retains its traditional lift to the fruit and a bright, lively demeanor. It might not be as concentrated as the 2018, but it has a wonderfully zesty finish with the acidity on display. MARK SQUIRES, eRobertParker.com.au
