  1. Avaniel Tinto Ribera del Duero 2019
    Avaniel Tinto Ribera del Duero 2019

    Bodegas Monteabellón is located in the heart of the Ribera del Duero with 52 hectares of vineyards (mainly Tempranillo) around the township of Nava de Roa. Isaac Fernandez, nephew of the legendary Vega Sicilia ex- winemaker, Marino Garcia, is the inspiration behind this relatively new venture.

    The production at the winery is a thoroughly modern affair that draws on nearly 140 hectares of vineyards. The plots are spread over the Ribera, Rioja and Rueda with the mainstay wines those from their excellent Ribera holdings.

    Avaniel is made from grapes from one or the freshest young plots called "Los Miles". It is also one of the youngest vineyard with vines within 6 and 10 years. Violet and damson with wild forest fruits and plum pudding, spice cake character. There are intriguing mountain herbs and salt bush flavours supporting plump cool blue fruits and black raspberry cool-aid. The tannins are fine grained and feel off in the distance providing gentle structure to the easy drinking fruit. PWS

  2. Vine Mind Shiraz Malbec 2017
    Vine Mind Shiraz Malbec 2017
    Vine Mind is the dynamic duo of Jen Gardner and Col McBryde designed to be a departure from the stoicism of Clare (although we may be responsible for some of that too). This is about setting a challenge and in our minds, winning!

    This is a blend of fantastic old vine material and in particular exceptionally tasty malbec out of the Clare. From 20-100 year old vines in the Springfarm sub-region on red sand over clay with limestone and slate through the sub-surface at 450m above sea level. Hand picked fruit, destemmed, lightly crushed, 60% whole berry fermentation with maceration between 10-30 days in concrete vessels. Aged in neutral French Oak Barriques for 12 months. 14% alc.

    "Blueberries, a lash of leather and orange jaffa cake… Well that's as a start, mint and satsuma plums are in there too. That all kind of rolls through on the palate, rasberry seeds, bay and citrus like acidity shape out the palate with a typical after dinner mint regional kind of thing on the finish." Col McBryde
    Malbec, shiraz
  3. Lopez de Haro Rioja Blanco 2019
    Lopez de Haro Rioja Blanco 2019
    An ethos that blends attention to detail with the high quality old vineyards to create authentic contemporary classics. Based in the historic town of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, in  the heart of DOCa Rioja surrounded to the north by the Sierra Cantabria and to the south by the Ebro  river. The microclimate of the area and its clay-calcareous soils generate the perfect conditions for the vineyards.

    This is 100% viura from from old vines planted in poor soils on a hillside near San Vicente de la Sonsierra. Selection in the vineyard with a controlled maceration with its skins for about 4 or six hours for a little phenolic grip. Fermented in French oak barrels for three months.

    This is lovely and fresh with a hint of honey toasted oak that sits nicely with the bright clean fruit. So many of the traditional Rioja blanco are overly oaked and lacking freshness so this was a very pleasant surprise when we tasted it. Lots of lovely peachy, pear and apple fruit played of pretty oak flavours in a medium bodied style that is very charming.
  4. Reine Juliette Carignan 2019
    Reine Juliette Carignan 2019
    The Domaine Reine Juliette sits along the southern side of the modern A9, which historically was the Via Domitia which connected Italy to Spain. Guillaume and his sister Marion inherited the estate from his parents in 1985, and they are now joined by his son in working the land. Together they are the 6th and 7th generations of Allies making wine at Reine Juliette.

    Harvested early (August) to keep some freshness and also because the summer was very dry and warm. 15 days cold maceration, malolactic fermentation, aged 6 months in concrete tanks. Very drinkable Carignan. The dark fruit character shows very well with silky tannins, touch of chopped herbs and pepperiness."
  5. De Bortoli Villages Tempranillo Touriga 2019
    De Bortoli Villages Tempranillo Touriga 2019
    15% whole bunch, 6 months in 500L French oak puncheons (5% new). 53/42/5%/tempranillo/touriga/shiraz. Vegan/vegetarian friendly. Plenty of Spanish-Portuguese love happening here with the vivacious tempranillo in a meeting of minds with touriga. Plush fruit meets firm tannins with dark cherries, red licorice, full spice. It's full-on flavour is whipped into a pretty tight tannic mould on the palate. JENI PORT, JamesHalliday.com

  6. Langmeil Three Gardens Viognier Roussane Marsanne 2019
    Langmeil Three Gardens Viognier Roussane Marsanne 2019
    A classic blend of three of the noblest French Rhône white varieties - Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. A fruity, rich and textural fusion bursting with stone fruit, grapefruit, honeysuckle fresh cut herb and a lemon curd zing. This is have lovely cut and nervy energy that sits beautifully within a fleshy and ripe frame. This is a real surprise and a perfect winter white with its textural body.

    In keeping with the old Barossa vignerons' name for their vineyards, the three 'Gardens' for this blend have been selected from the Lyndoch vineyard in the Southern Barossa Valley, the Marsanne from Gomersal on the Western Ridge and the Roussanne from the high rolling hills of Eden Valley. Each were picked relatively early then fermented separately at low temperatures to retain freshness. This was followed by five months' tank maturation on lees (a polite way of saying dead yeast) to build complexity and palate weight before blending and bottling.
    Marsanne, Roussane, Viognier
  7. Pandolfa Federico Sangiovese 2019
    Pandolfa Federico Sangiovese 2019
    There's a crunch to the air that you breathe at the highest point of the Pandolfa vineyards, some 300m above the gorgeous 17th century es-tate now owned by Marco Cirese and his wife Alice. It's easy to spot the Adriatic through the hilly terrain of Predappio which no doubt plays its part in the coolness of that breeze and the unique character of the wines from up here.

    The winery is a packed with stainless tanks, with some barrels tucked away in a dark corner. Most are large Slavonian 'Botti' but there are a few barriques. Thankfully here at Pandolfa they've worked hard to allow the fruit to do the talking, and we are all the better off for it.

    Mid-weight and airy crunchy fruit that sizzles along nicely. No oak or other artifact to encumber the lively and fresh palate. Juicy fruits and easy to slide into. PWS
  8. Lini 910 Lambrusco
    Lini 910 Lambrusco
    Forget any preconception of Lambrusco as the sweet industrialised stuff that your parents may have known. Or some of the poor local versions that continue to denigrate the great and proud reputation of one of Italy's classic wine styles. \n\nEstablished in 1910, Lini is a family run-winery - Alicia Lini is the fourth generation winemaker - producing a range of Lambruschi that are elegant, vibrant, complex, refreshing and dry versions that shine with simple foods such as cured meats and antipasti. TREMBATH & TAYLOR\n\nLini 910 makes excellent Lambrusco and has only recently been available in Australia. Its dar red and enticing with loads of big bubbles as soon as its poured although they dissipate quickly. There is plenty of red berry fruit, smoky, savoury with some grippy tannins offset by cleansing acidity and a fresh finish. JANE FAULKNER, The Age\n
  9. Fattori Soave 2020
    Fattori Soave 2020

    Garganega: 100 %, a small part of which from late harvest.

    Fermented and matured in stainless steel vats.

    Intense straw yellow. Floral hints of jasmine and wisteria. Towards the end, a sensation of nuts. A fresh core of citrus and white apple fruit aromas.. The bouquet is enhanced by subtle hints of sage and nettle, while the palate is fresh, crisp and gently mineral textured. Elegant and round with a balanced taste and freshness with hints of citrus fruit. Ideal with fish and vegetable risottos.

  10. Domaine Naturaliste Discovery Syrah 2019
    Domaine Naturaliste Discovery Syrah 2019
    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

  11. Moorooduc Estate Pinot Noir 2020 375ml
    Moorooduc Estate Pinot Noir 2020 375ml
    A blend of the Mcintyre, Robinson and Garden vineyards that receives all the care attention of the single vineyard bottlings. A bit of dark cherry and heady spice with a touch of pretty florals that linger gently. A bit of French oak and some whole bunch add some slippery texture and a whole of class. A peppery, savoury touch on the palate with some pretty oak framing the plush fruit. Fantastic stuff.
    We have always had great relationship with the Mcintyre family and Kate in particular who we have collaborated with on numerous projects. They are pioneers and standard bearers for the Mornington Peninsula. The wines from top to bottom are all sensational and we are proud to call them our friends. PWS

    Our philosophy in everything we do is to make the most of top quality ingredients. Intensive, hands-on care in the vineyard, with minimal use of chemicals, produces the best possible fruit for our wines. Wild yeast ferments and minimal intervention winemaking, with a nod to traditional Burgundian techniques, allow our wines to express their site specificity, or terroir. MOOROODUC

  12. Pittnauer Pitti Rose 2018
    Pittnauer Pitti Rose 2018
    In a world of overhyped rosé, here's a pristine, flavoursome, tightly focused and refreshing expression from Pittnauer. Its floral bouquet of raspberries, red cherries and a whiff of citrus oil overlies a hint of meatiness. Long and brightly lit, with a juiciness that is never rich or cloying, its charmingly vivacious palate is underpinned by a fine chalkiness, finishing with a tangy, lemony acidity. It's a delightful combination of flavour, freshness and brightness.

  13. Fontaleoni Chianti DOCG 2019
    Fontaleoni Chianti DOCG 2019
    The 2019 Chianti Colli Senesi is a fresh, fruity red to drink now and over the next few years. Sweet red cherry fruit and floral notes are nicely lifted in this mid-weight, perfumed Chianti Colli Senesi. Best of all, the 2019 is a terrific value. ANTONIO GALLONI

    Red fruited, spicy and attractively perfumed. As with the previous vintage this is a Chianti that is all about uncomplicated pleasure and it is built for enjoyment and to be consumed with food. Cherry and aniseed notes, somewhat gritty tannins and a faintly bitter twist of cherry pith on the finish all adding a little more interest and making me really want some salumi and to be sitting in the sunshine somewhere in Tuscany. Not sure what to say here, this wine seems to always deliver on quality verse hip pocket damage in a serious way. Outstanding value. ROSCOE

  14. Roche de Bellene Bellenos Rouge 2018
    Roche de Bellene Bellenos Rouge 2018
    The Bellenos Cuvée Rouge is primarily from the Beaujolais area in the south of Burgundy, where fruity, mineral-inflected Gamay Noir is grown on granite soils. It is blended with finely structured Pinot Noir from the Côte d’Or in northern Burgundy. The result is a fresh, fruit-forward “Vin de Plaisir” — a deliciously expressive wine for everyday enjoyment.
    Grape varieties: 80% Gamay Noir and 20% Pinot Noir

  15. Nunc Pinot Noir 2019
    Nunc Pinot Noir 2019

    Dave Mac formerly of Oyster bay and now Ar Fion heads up this awesome little collaboration that morphs from year to year. Working with growers from four Yarra Valley vineyards, stretching across the region's myriad of microclimates and soils this a classic looking Yarra Pinot.

    Yarra Station, Willowlake, Beenak and Primavera Vineyards, Yarra Valley

    The fruit from the Yarra Station and Willowlake vineyards was fermented as whole bunches for approximately 14 days. After a few light stomps they were pressed together to stay on light lees in old barrels. The remaining fruit (from Beenak and Primavera) was completely de-stemmed and fermented for approx 22 days with a light pump over every day. They were then pressed to a mix of old and two-year-old French barriques.

    After two months, malolactic fermentation was complete and the wines were racked together as a blend then returned to barrel for a further few months to help vineyard characters to integrate with each other and make a complete wine. At the end of August the wine was racked lightly again to tank, prior to a light sulphur addition in preparation for bottling.
    No fining or filtration.

    The result is a savoury, amaro- and tea leaf-inflected Pinot, with lifted notes of red cherry, raspberry and rose leading to a palate that is juicy and bright, medium-bodied, and with a deliciously smoky-spicy close. PWS

  16. Lenton Brae Merlot 2018
    Lenton Brae Merlot 2018

    The late architect Bruce Tomlinson built a strikingly beautiful winery (heritage-listed by the Shire of Busselton) that is now in the hands of winemaker son Edward (Ed), who consistently makes elegant wines in classic Margaret River style. A midwinter (French time) trip to Pomerol in Bordeaux to research merlot is an indication of his commitment. Exports to the UK. JAMES HALLIDAY

    The inaugural release. Estate-grown, wild ferment, 14 months maturation in 25% new French barriques. An interesting bouquet, a bit gamey and earthy, with the oak having an influence. Fruit comes through more clearly on the palate, the red-berried flavours quite soft and rich, fitting the usual expectation of merlot. Ripe, almost sweet tannin rounds it out. STEVEN CREBER, JamesHalliday.com

  17. Roche de Bellene Bellenos Blanc 2018
    Roche de Bellene Bellenos Blanc 2018
    The Bellenos range sit under the newly created Coteaux Bougignons (Hillside Burgundy) appellation. This new appellation was created was created in 2011 to allow producers in the region more freedom to blend wines, among varieties and throughout a larger designated area. It is designed to promote Burgundy that is of real quality but perhaps fits outside the traditional constraints of AOC regulations. It extends from Cote d’or in the north to Beaujolais in the south.

    The blanc is a blend of mainly chardonnay sourced from a cluster of southern Burgundy and northern Beaujolais sites. A touch of aligoté is also blended in to provide a little extra zip and vigour to the wine. Fermentation is all done in stainless steel tank with about 8 months in larger old barrels and aging on fine lees to provide a little extra texture and weight. PWS
  18. Jaboulet Parallele 45 Cotes du Rhone Blanc 2019
    Jaboulet Parallele 45 Cotes du Rhone Blanc 2019

    Since taking over Jaboulet in 2003 the Frey family have been moving towards organics and biodynamic viticulture - not always that easy in the temperate climes of the Northern Rhone, especially at volume - yet in 2017 they achieved their goal.

    To get there they have dramatically reduced yields - up to 60% less fruit per hectare now than when they took over.

    The wines across the board have improved dramatically in quality and their entry level Cotes du Rhone both red and white are no exception. These are amazing quality for the amount of wine made and the price. For $20 a bottle (in dozen) you will struggle to find wines as well put together and expressive of the Rhone.
