  1. Route du Van Dolcetto Shiraz 2018
    Route du Van Dolcetto Shiraz 2018
    A passion project for The Dexter clan (Todd and Debbie) and Bird (Ian and Ruth, David and Marie) families sourcing grapes from all over Victoria to put into this fun label. Winemaker Todd heads up the team in winery so if that is not enough to get you interested then I don't know what is. Great stuff all round from the label but we think this wine is the most fun and interesting out of the lot.

    King Valley/Alpine Valley
    51% Dolcetto
    47% Shiraz
    6% Sangiovese

    A juicy little number with that loveley blue fruit clove spice hit you get from Dolcetto. The shiraz throw in some more darker broody fruit and the earthy peppercorn element as well. This is such a fun little wine that is screaming drink me now! Plush and pretty its a crowd pleaser. PWS

  2. Chalk Hill Europa Shiraz 2020
    Chalk Hill Europa Shiraz 2020
    Chalk Hill is a family owned wine company dedicated to making small batch, hand crafted wines of distinction. The Harvey family grape growing heritage goes back six generations in South Australia, and they now have six vineyards (two of which are Certified Organic and the rest sustainably managed) spread across the beautiful McLaren Vale wine region. The home vineyard was first planted in 1897 and these century old vines still bear fruit today. It is the family commitment to make wines that reveal the unique place that is McLaren Vale, and to showcase the efforts from the vineyard to the bottle.

    Each of the seven parcels are treated separately and this sees a combo of steel tank and older oak so remains beautifully fresh, lifted and pure. A perfumed nose with red and dark berry fruits combining with milk chocolate, spice and roasted nuts. Medium to full bodied, this wine is beautifully balanced with layers of red and blue fruits up front. The finish is plush and slippery with beautiful fruit buttressed by fine tannins.

  3. Rocky Gully Shiraz 2017
    Rocky Gully Shiraz 2017
    We are thoroughly impressed with the reds coming out of Frankland Estate at the moment. There estate Syrah is one of the best in the country and we make that call with confidence. What the Rocky Gully offers is the same commitment to quality in a fun and forward package. Sourced from estate and several other vineyards in Frankland river there is distinctive and delicious, cool-climate bent to this wine with its sweet, peppery spice and anise nose. Packed with black forest fruits and spicy finish this is the best we have seen from the Rocky Gully range we have seen so far. PWS

  4. La Purisima Estio Tinto Monastrell Blend 2019
    La Purisima Estio Tinto Monastrell Blend 2019

    La Purisima is a sort of 'post-modern' co-op, doing some really sensational 'estate-style' wines from holdings of very old, dry grown, original clone, ungrafted Monastrell. La Purisima is in the township of Yecla, which gives its name to the Denominacion de Origen, D.O. Yecla, about 1.5 hours inland, due west from Alicante. It's also very high up, with vineyards as high as 1100m above sea level. Summer heat is tempered by altitude, while winter is both extremely cold, and also quite dry (average rainfall is 12 inches per annum.) No irrigation.

    Low crop, high levels of vineyard vigilance, organic growing techniques, picked in the cooler hours of the day (mornings) and packed into small crates, begins a process of meticulous winemaking. The grapes then go through several selection passes, followed by 'must' chilling and fermentation in stainless steel.

    The original clones of Monastrell grown on their own roots from old bush vines, dry grown. This is a simple wine, but really good. Very varietal warm bitumen/dried fig/honey/black fruit Monastrell, given a bit of a juicy-jubey touch up from the Syrah in the blend. Very silky to the tongue with decent length and a nice sense of taper on the palate to a finish where the fruit tannins live. PWS

  5. Lucky Cat Nouveau Shiraz 2021
    Lucky Cat Nouveau Shiraz 2021

    Winemaker Tim Shand's Lucky Cat Nouveau made with shiraz grapes from the King Valley in Victoria is a breath of fresh air. Tim always aims for up-front easy to enjoy wines, full of flavour with a little twist. He uses very little additions with just a wee dollop of sulphur at bottling to ensure peak freshness.

    The Nouveau shiraz leaps out of the glass with vivid red fruits interlaced with clove and pepper. Plenty of whole bunch goodness here that leads into a slippery palate choc-full of red and black, wild berry fruit that feels buoyant and fresh. It's not overly simple in any way and it's hard not to just gulp this one down. We tried this chilled, and it was delicious! If you chuck this in the fridge for 20 minutes you better make sure you put in two bottles because it aint going to last long.

  6. Peter Lehmann H & V Shiraz 2019
    Peter Lehmann H & V Shiraz 2019
    The H&V range are designed to showcase the diversity of the Barossa and in some ways challenge the views of what consumers think. The wine is a blend of mainly Barossa and a touch of Eden fruit which adds a lovely cool edge and offers great value.

    Nicel filled with plum, blackberry and dark chocolate flavours. There is a nod to 'traditional' Barossa with the use of American hogsheads. In saying that this is surprisingly elegant and wonderfully put together. Plenty of ripe blackberry conserve and a spicy, leathery lick. We are thoroughly impressed with this little number.

  7. Rive Droite Rive Gauche Cotes du Rhone 2020
    Rive Droite Rive Gauche Cotes du Rhone 2020
    Rive Droite Rive Gauche simply means right bank, left bank and the name derives from fruit for the wine being sourced from both sides of the river - the grenache coming mainly from the left (gauche) and the Syrah from the village of Daumazan (on the rive droite), near Tavel. It is also a French film starring the rotund wine-nut actor Gerard Depardieu - fun fact!

    This is a lovely fresh and crunchy styled Rhone from our friends at Rive Droite. There is touch of thyme and bay over red spiced fruits, layered with a little bit of red liquorice. This is a medium bodied rendition with a pure core of raspberry, wild strawberry and splash of black berry fruit in the mix. Its lithe with a lovely fresh cut to the sweet fruits that makes this look wonderfully elegant and damn easy to like.

  8. Vinea Marson 'Jozza' Syrah 2015
    Vinea Marson 'Jozza' Syrah 2015
    If you love the wine of Marios at Vinea Marson you are going to love this. The wine is part of an export deal that unfortunately (fortunately for us) fell through. Needless to say this isn't uncommon in the world of wine and we get to reap the benefits.

    This has all the bells and whistles of Marios wines out of Heathcote and he has put just as much love into making this as he has his Vinea Marson range. Nice dark berry fruit with some pretty and lifted aromatics, sweet spices and elegant floral lilt. Its open and fleshy following through with black fruits that flow on a supple palate. A peppery hit at the close. Nice stuff.

    Silver - International Wine Challenge London 

    Blueberry and purple fruit notes. A purple and fine elegant style with a lovely chocolate on the palate NICK ADAMS, MW

    We love the wines of Domaine Naturalist and Bruce Dukes is a man who walks to the beat of hist own drum. The vineyards sit in the cooler Wilyabrup GI and you can see this is in the Discovery syrah that presents with fresh cracked pepper and lifted spice over smokey and meaty, blue/black fruits. Plenty of punch in a medium bodied and fleshy number. This screams cool-climate style and we look forward to more like this from Bruce. PWS

  10. Bests Bin 1 Shiraz 2018
    Bests Bin 1 Shiraz 2018

    It wasn't an easy choice this year, it never is. While we tasted a lot of great stuff, and there were a few contenders, this gem takes home the chocolates for a number of reasons, first a foremost among them is that is it great.
    This release of Bin 1 delivers a package of sumptuously juicy and immediately impressive fruit that can be drunk right out of the gate, as shown by the number of bottles I have consumed already. It also has a degree of class and sophistication with the inherent stuffing and filigreed tannins to carry it in the cellar for a period as it develops and grows in stature and gains detail. It is a wine that offers an expression of Shiraz that is completely unique to its region. A gorgeous example.
    The reason why it got the gong for my wine of the year though, you get all of this for very little hip pocket damage. A touch over $20, it is crazy value. In 2020 who doesn't need great wine that is also great value? That's why this is the Best (terrible pun intended) wine I have had this year. ROSCOE

  11. Tomfoolery Young Blood Shiraz 2021
    Tomfoolery Young Blood Shiraz 2021

    Another belter Shiraz from Chippy in the Barossa. He is a part of the new wave of Barossa producers turning out wonderfuly fresh, vibrant and modern wines with a knod to what makes the wines of the region so appealing to drink.

    Dark fruits and deep-set spice greet you on the nose with along with a lovely licorice and earthy hit. The palate is forward and full of black, juicy fruit that goes on for ages. Some firm tannins give it nice structure but the wine as a whole remains soft and pliant. PWS

  12. Shaw & Smith Shiraz 2017 375ml
    Shaw & Smith Shiraz 2017 375ml

    It’s from such an unusual/cold/late season that shiraz was picked four weeks later than average.

    It’s a peppery, twiggy, bunchy shiraz. It smells, feels and tastes like the result of a cool season. This wine will split drinkers down the middle. It’s smoky, herbal, berried, smooth-skinned and stringy at once. It both walks the tightrope and is one. There are menthol, alpine herb, walnut and peppercorn characters here in abundance. There are also substantial ropes of well-placed tannin. It’s a medium-bodied wine with a great deal to say. CAMMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

    What can we say about this wonderful producer? Nothing that hasn't already been said. The consistency and quality is really quite astonishing and with Adama Wadawitz at the winemaking helm this a trend that will continue its upward trajectory. Their secret has been to continually improve and tweak the operations and that shows in every bottle. One of Australia's great estates. PWS

  13. Michael Hall Sang de Pigeon Shiraz 2017
    Michael Hall Sang de Pigeon Shiraz 2017
    ...the wines are as impressive as his experience suggests they should be. JAMES HALLIDAY

    Michael was once a jewellery valuer for Sotheby's but moved to Australia in 2001 to pursue studies and a career in winemakeing - and we are glad he did. There is nothing in his porftolio that isn't either well crafted, beautifully handled and/or speaks so eloquently of place. His work in Australia and abroad is a veritable who's who of producers including Cullen, Giaconda, Henschke, Shaw + Smith, Coldstream Hills and Veritas. In France he cut his teeth with Domaine Leflaive, Meo-Camuzet, Vieux Telegraphe and Trevallon. Wow!
     
    Hand-picked in Greenock and Stone Well, wild fermented in open fermenter and closed puncheons, 5% whole bunch, matured in French oak barrels for 21 months (10% new). Blended with 15% Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills Shiraz. PWS

    Fruit takes the front seat here, blackcurrants, note of red fruit and a dusting of cinnamon spice. Medium bodied, smooth and loaded with velvety tannin. Nothing overdone or out of place.
