  1. La Boca Malbec 2020
    La Boca Malbec 2020
    La Boca is sourced from vineyards in the Uco Valley, Argentina at elevations of up to 3500 metres. Purity and freshness is the key here with modern winemaking and very little oak to hide behind.

    The high altitude vineyards lend a lovely lifted quality to the fruit on the nose and in the mouth.
    Mulberry and black currant fruit give way to black spice and heady aromatics of violet that you don't often see. The well-established older vines yield wonderfully concentrated fruit at the core of the wine and the minimal fussing in the winemaking means that the pure fruits are allowed to shine. Plush and forward but with a lovely snap of acidity and round tannins that hold everything in check. Good stuff!
  2. PWS Thank Your Port 500ml
    PWS Thank Your Port 500ml
    For those of you who may remember we used to have 3 big barrels of fortified wines out the back of the store where you could re-fill your own bottles, or buy from us, a selection of Stanton & Kileen Muscat, Topaque and Ruby Fortified. After many years these bottlings fell out of favour and with room growing to a premium at the store we got rid of them.

    But what to do with all that wonderful sticky goodness? The juice was too good to just pour away and we really had a bit of a soft-spot in our heart for these wines. In jumps  crew at Stanton & Kileen help us out with our little conundrum. They expertly blended the 3 fortifieds together with a little fresh stock from their own holdings and worked a little magic at the same time. The result is the PWS Thank You Fortified.

    This is such a magical combo or red fruits blended with spicy muscat florals and a hint of earl grey tea. It's beautifully luscious and sweet like a muscat but a dollop of strawberry and raspberry fruit elevate the nose with a little twist on the traditional fortified. Delicious!
  3. De Bortoli Tumbarumba Chardonnay 2019
    De Bortoli Tumbarumba Chardonnay 2019

    De Bortoli offers some of the most interesting and best value drinking in the country at the moment. Their commitment to quality at all levels is really incredible and the fact that they manage to do this over such a large range and with such a diverse suite of wine style and varietals is unbelieveable. PWS

    From the Minutello Vineyard planted '81. The sheer quality of the fruit - and its clearly articulated varietal character - leaves no room for argument: this is priced well below its value. The flavours are ripe even though framed by pink grapefruit, green apple and white peach. Oak? Don't know/don't care. JAMES HALLIDAY

  4. De Bortoli Vinoque Same Same 2019
    De Bortoli Vinoque Same Same 2019

    The Vinoque range from De Bortoli is a bit of fun for winemaker Steve Webber but don't let that full you, the same drive for quality and great wine are poured into these wines as they are the hole range from the crew at De Bortoli.

    The Same Same blend changes from year to year and has in the past included Pinot Gris. Either way it is "Pinot" based and ridiculously easy to drink. PWS

    Yarra Valley blend of pinot meunier (59%) and pinot noir. Pinot meunier: same same as pinot noir, but different. Just don’t ask me to explain how.

    Sure this is frisky, fresh and berried but there’s an earthen quality, a savoury side, a nod to the other side of the brain. There’s a core of sweet succulent fruit but that’s not the wine’s main play; herb and spice notes have the run of things here. It’s an ‘at the table’ wine, as opposed to an ‘on the couch’ or a ‘by the pillow’ wine (there’s a set of wine show categories for you). It pays to get these things right. In any case I’m a fan of this release. Le table awaits. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

  5. Domaine Pajot Cotes de Gascogne Blanc 2019
    Domaine Pajot Cotes de Gascogne Blanc 2019

    The Domaine itself is plonked on the hills overlooking Eauze the capital of Armagnac. Its certified organic and has eighty acres of vines that grow on the gentle hills of sand and fine silt soils. All harvests are done by hand and the domaine does not use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. This is a dry and textural blend of Colombard, Ugni-Blanc, Sauvignon, and Gros-Manseng.

    They have done it again! This is my go to white for summer with a lovely lemony, floral lilt and powdery, perfumed nose. Gentle and bright with clean and crisp flavours of orchard fruits and white nectarine. Its uncomplicated and delicious with clean, crunchy fruits and a zippy, minerally finish. Ridiculous value. MYLES, PWS

    White Blend
  6. Antinori Peppoli Chianti Classico 2018 375ml
    Antinori Peppoli Chianti Classico 2018 375ml
    Antinori is a name synonymous with wine in Italy, the equivalent of the royal family of wine in the country. Intimately involved in the wine industry of Italy since 1385, initially in Tuscany, but in more recent years their influence has grown seeing them involved in wine-making projects across the country.

    They were instrumental in the renaissance of Chianti and their portfolio of wines includes some stellar names such as Tignanello - the Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc blend that was most influential in the Super Tuscan movement, Solaia - the Cabernet dominant blend also from the Tignanello Estate and, of course, the beautiful Peppoli Chianti Classico. PWS

    The 2018 Chianti Classico Pèppoli is gracious and beautifully perfumed. Crushed red berry fruit, spice, blood orange, mint and orange zest give this silky Chianti Classico lovely flavor depth. I would prefer to drink it over the next few years. ANTONIO GALLONI, Vinous
  7. Isaac Fernandez Acentor Garnacha 2016
    Isaac Fernandez Acentor Garnacha 2016
    Isaac Fernández Selección is a unique collaborative venture between two individuals - Isaac Fernández Montaña one of Spain's most acclaimed winemakers and Aurelio Cabestrero. Working with old vine fruit and from some of the oldest DO's in Spain they are bringing together a wealth of experience. It's a shame this is the only wine coming into the country because it is a belter!

    Dark violet with spicey accented cherry and dark berry aromas. There is a touch of cola and vanilla  that sits nicely against the fresh dark fruit. Tons of energy and it seems to sizzle along in the mouth, offering sweet red and blue fruit and spicecake flavors. There is a bit of tannic grip and that touch of wild herbs that leads into a smokey finish where the tannins melt back into the sweet fruits. This is a great example of what a bit of thought and effort can bring to a wine that overdelivers in spades!
  8. De Bortoli Villages Pinot Noir 2019
    De Bortoli Villages Pinot Noir 2019

    The idea of a Villages blend is to create attractive and appealing wine from different villages within the Yarra Valley. Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Pinot Noir are selected from best growers along with and Grenache chosen from Heathcote. 

    How Steve Webber and his team manage to punch out such great wines, accross the whole ranged with this value is always a surprise to us.

    Another stellar effort and effortlessly is the key word here. Floral and bright with a serious tone to the fruit that is dialled in with a fresh Autumnal leaf that sits gently in the background. Softly sweet fruit, fresh and clean with a little x-factor that keeps you coming back for more. PWS

    Pinot noir
  9. Bilancia Pinot Gris 2019
    Bilancia Pinot Gris 2019

    Pears and apples mingle with white flowers and a touch of peach. Lovely texture, dry and rich with a sense of glycerol to the overt flavours of bosc pear and red apples. It has Gris weight but also a nice, enlivening juicy feel to the fruit. Finishes with a good degree of crispness to what is otherwise a wine of texture above all. I think the winemaker said "This is how Pinot Gris should be." That's a fair statement, tastes like a textbook description of the variety when it's made well. ROSCOE

    Pinot Gris
    New Zealand
  10. Vinuva Nero d'Avola 2019
    Vinuva Nero d'Avola 2019
    This is 100% organic and sourced of the crazy volcanic soils of Sicily. Often Nero runs to juby and a bit non-descript but this version has plenty of detail and savoury crunch all wrapped up in an easy drinking and plush style.

    Sicily a region blessed with consistent bright sunshine is perfect for Nero d'avola a native grape from the island. Grown on a calcareous soil this gives the wine an elegant lilt to the plush fruit. The nose presents with black and red berries and dried fruits with notes of chocolate underlying the vibrant fruit. This is a lovely bright expression of the Variety with a mouth-filling and juicy palate. 100% organic to boot! PWS
    Nero d'Avola
  11. 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.
  12. Baron Leopold Bordeaux Blanc 2018
    Baron Leopold Bordeaux Blanc 2018
    A new producer in the market that has just nailed it for entry level Bordeaux that actually taste like Bordeaux! Blended from vineyards across the appellation this is a superb introduction to the Bordeaux style, delivering a classic expression of the region and delicious to boot.

    Raised in tank and aged on fine lees, an abundance of savoury, grassy grapefruit, tangy and beautifully balanced.Lifted tropical fruit, lime and green apple with subtle herbaceous grassy end notes. Light, fresh and dry the palate with a touch of textural slip that carries it through the zingy close. PWS
    sauvignon Blanc, Semillon
  13. Airlie Bank Pinot Noir 2020
    Airlie Bank Pinot Noir 2020

    You’ll likely buy it for less than the RRP listed here, which is a good thing for the consumer. Another excellent wine from the master of complexity at entry level prices, Tim Shand.

    Orange peel, amaro herbs, red fruit, spicy, and very savoury. It’s light, kind of juicy, but bright and complex, sappy and a little bit ‘out there’, slight smokiness, energy and crunch, and all-round deliciousness of drinking. Finish is good. Love this. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

    This always has a good chunk of whole-bunch to bring out the spicy Pinot fruit and it does it so well in a fresh and buoyant style.  Red cherried fruit bursting through with an orange peel twang and plenty of sweet spice notes carry it through to the racy and vibrant finish. No oak of oak its just pure, fresh and utterly smashable. PWS

    Pinot noir
  14. Dal Zotto Pucino Prosecco
    Dal Zotto Pucino Prosecco
    The Dal Zotto family has decided to make this wine one of their mainstays, and they’ve delivered an impressive, zesty style that has plenty of appeal as an aperitif or partly filler. There’s plenty of fresh cut pear and apple fruit here – really pure and even. The palates smooth and finely stated, with delicious, gently creamy texture.
    Nick Stock, The Age Good Wine Guide 2011 

    Dal Zotto make two proseccos – the other is a vintage release that’s bottle-fermented and twice the price. This one uses the Charmat method and is made for everyday drinking. Alluring aromas of pear, apple blossom and red berries have a yeasty complexity to them, while the wine tastes of sweet stonefruit, spice and zesty lemon. It’s more gentle on the fizz than some and in turn has a creamy mousse along with a light grip and a refreshing finish of pithy citrus and apple.
