  1. Pierre Marie Chermette Beaujolais Les Griottes Beaujolais 2019 375ml
    Pierre Marie Chermette Beaujolais Les Griottes Beaujolais 2019 375ml

    crewcap. This Beaujolais cherrybomb is drawn from 20- to 40-year-old vines grown on dark, granite soils around the Chermette homestead in Saint-Vérand (southern Beaujolais). The winemaking here has remained unchanged for decades, with traditional whole-bunch, semi-carbonic ferment in concrete tanks and then maturation in tank and ancient oak casks still the order of the day.

    As opposed to his age-worthy Crus from Moulin-a-Vent, Fleurie, et al, Chermette's aim here is to produce something light-bodied and cherry-fruited with reach-for-another-glass charm--something the juicy-crunchy 2019 nails with ease. From one of the region's great addresses, this is a punchy and buoyant red that goes down dangerously easily. PWS

    Pale peach skin color. Fresh citrus fruits, red berries and a hint of nectarine on the incisive, mineral-accented nose. Silky and focused on the palate, offering light-bodied strawberry, tangerine and succulent herb flavors. Finishes smooth and subtly sweet, with a repeating red berry note and good tenacity.

  2. 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.

  3. Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache 2019
    Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache 2019
    The estate's efforts across the respective grenache cuvees are almost as venerable as those across the very fine expressions of viognier. This, a thirst-slaking red, is worth celebrating for its youthful primary fruit: cranberry, cumquat and cherry bonbon. Yet, most impressive are the saline, slaty tannins that been massaged into the fray with aplomb, helping to imbue poise while curtailing the ripeness of fruit. NED GOODWIN MW, James Halliday's Wine Companion

    Sourced from very old bush vines (some dating back to 1929) which add both depth of fruit and phenolic impact, lending the wine some subtle gravitas. Lovely, so primary it's almost juicy, lifted with elements of spice that slides in to grilled meats. Beautifully textured, vibrant and inviting. Lovely, did I say that already? There is structure and heft here too but it only adds to the overall sensuality of the wine. We all tasted this and asked how much. When we heard the price we jumped on it. Yalumba are masters at the craft and this is ludicrously good for the money. The ideal mid-week wine with so much going for it that it embarrasses a lot of other wines in a similar price range.

  4. Vallformosa MVSA Brut NV
    Vallformosa MVSA Brut NV

    The 'MVSA' is made from the tradition Cava varieties Macabeo, Xarello and Parellada at the respective ratio's of 35:30:35%, the wine has seen 24 months of lees ageing and bears 9.5 g/l of residual sugar, but has the acidity to clean up the tail; it is a stylish and satisfying wine of great value. It is pale in colour with plenty of bubbles showing aromas of apples and pears, toasty bread and white flowers balancing the right amount of bubbles and acid. There is pure apple on the palate with minerals and lemon sherbet on the finish; it is a very cooling and refreshing summer drink. PWS

  5. 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.

  6. Gutierrez Colosia Fino del Puerto NV 375ml
    Gutierrez Colosia Fino del Puerto NV 375ml

    The NV Fino has a delicate nose that suggests a limited time under flor with roasted almonds, flowers and balsamic herbs. The palate is much more powerful, medium-bodied, intense, and dry, with a bitter end. Drink 2013-2014. LUIS GUTIERREZ

    The wine is lovely – pretty well a mid-point between Manzanilla and Jerez Finos in style. Coastal, but less overtly briny than La Goya. Delicately earthy with constrained power, like a baby Jerez wine. TSA

  7. 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

  8. Rock of Wisdom Superfly Red 2021
    Rock of Wisdom Superfly Red 2021
    We love the Superfly range from Rock of Wisdom. These are meant to be no mess, no fuss, easy drinking juicy wines and they have well and truly nailed the brief! Minimal intervention is the name of the game here but done thoughtfully and with panache.

    This is a MGS blend and the little extra of dollop mataro brings a nice earthy hit the otherwise bight and bubby fruit. This just leaps out of the glass with gleaming red fruits and plenty of sweet spice goodness. So much energy and lift, everything feels so fresh with lots of crunchy fruit framed by the gentlest kiss of oak. So sluggable!

  9. Valdespino PX Yellow 750ml
    Valdespino PX Yellow 750ml
    With six centuries of sherry production under their belts, Valdespino lay claim to being one of the oldest sherry bodegas in the region. The heart of Valdespino is their vineyards. One of the few bodegas to release single-vineyard wines, their Macharnudo holding is one of the grand crus of Jerez at the highest altitude and located on the famous, and sought-after bright white Albariza chalk soils.

    From their savory and fresh Manzanilla Deliciosa and Fino Inocente, to their unctuous and intense Solera 1842 and Pedro Ximenez wines, the quality is world class and the bodega still ferment a proportion of their wines in wood, adding layers of complexity to the finish product. One of the few estates that age in solera far in excess of the DO regulations for all their styles of sherry.

    This is outstanding value PX with rasins, Christmas spice, grilled walnut in a lovely rich yet fresh frame. Don't get us wrong, it's sweet and delicious but still comes of with some nice bright citrus peel and orange fruit. Yum!

  10. 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.

  11. Silent Way Pinot Noir 2021
    Silent Way Pinot Noir 2021
    Matt Harrop has been making pinot from this Kilmore site since 2013. Before that Giant Steps used to take the grapes. The vineyard is on an old bluestone quarry and it’s cold here – Kilmore sits just outside the Macedon GI. Harrop attributes the soils and cooler climate to building structure in the wine. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s the iron fist in the velvet glove, but there is an elegance to its delivery wrapped in a firm and fine tannin. It unleashes structure and flesh, complemented by a central Victorian spice that reminds you where it comes from. This pinot that doesn’t shy away from framework – though the tannins are fine in keeping with its pinot nature. Exceptional for the price! GABRIELLE POY

  12. 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

    Saturated ruby. Ripe black raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by suggestions of cracked pepper, allspice and pungent flowers. Supple, appealingly sweet red and blue fruit preserve flavors gain energy with air, and a bright mineral element adds back-end lift. Supple tannins add shape to a persistent, floral-accented finish, which leaves cherry and spice notes behind. JOSH RAYNOLDS

    Blind Corner Orange 2021
    This year's Orange is 93% Sauvignon with a smidge of Chenin Blanc, sourced from the Blind Corner Quindalup vineyard and from selected like-minded organic partners in Margaret River. Soils are predominantly sand over pea gravel with a granite base. Organic and biodynamically reared grapes were added to a rolling wild ferment. There's been just enough skin contact for that teensy pucker.

    TYSON STELZER"S SPARKLING WINE OF THE YEAR UNDER $25

    The same blend that has wone a beloved place among the most legendary of Australia's bargain sparkling reds. All the plush, spicy mulberry and blackberry fruits of Langhorne Creek are enveloped into its fold, laced with pepper and a wonderful greengage tang.
    Impeccably managed, fine tannins, lively acidity and just the right level of dosage unite harmoniously on a finish of line, length and integrity completely unexpected at this price.
    It's a downright delicious drink - and begs the question of why there aren't more sparkling red made in Langhorne Creek. TYSON STELZER

    Forteto della Luja Mon Ross Barbera d'Asti 2020
    Do you know the wines of Forteto della Luja? If not, this is a great place to start. This wonderful producer is based in Asti makes their Barbera of a single vineyard that sits approximately 300 meters above see level. The elevated but exposed site combine for a wine that delivers soft, plush fruit with plenty of zip.

    Black and red fruits with dark cherry and breath of earthy spice. Its velvety and suave on the palate with sweet fruit that coats the mouth in dark cherry while remaining crunchy and bright. This is so easy to drink its almost dangerous but with enough interest to keep the wine snob in us happy. A ripper!

  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. Santadi Vermentino Villa Solais 2020
    Santadi Vermentino Villa Solais 2020
    The Sulcis peninsula is, geographically, Sardinia's most ancient area, rich in archaeological sites, and offers an astonishing palette of variations and contrasts, with coastal sand dunes, gentle hills and inlets, narrow strips of flatland and inland mountains, rugged cliffs overhanging the seas interspersed with silky-smooth white beaches, pine trees, junipers and vineyards. In these sandy soils, pre-phylloxera vines continue to survive and thrive.

    Made with 10% Nuragus, another local variety, this spends a few months maturation on lees, in stainless steel, to give the wine an extra dimension of flavour and texture. Citrus notes and hints of tropical fruit with a zesty edge and a touch of green herb and sea spray. The palate is minerally and refreshing with clean pithy fruit and plenty of citrusy goodness. So easy to love and so hard to put down.

    The 2019 Vernaccia di S. Gimignano is an absolutely delicious, every day white. Apricot, tangerine oil, mint, chamomile and yellow flowers all grace this tasty, supple Vernaccia from Fontaleoni. ANTONIO GALLONI

    Bright and somewhat crunchy with a direct line of fresh apple like acidity. Plenty to enjoy here with all the usual elements you would want from Vernaccia of this quality, apple fruit, lemon oil and white flowers along with just enough texture to provide a little tactile interest. Clean and clear cut and something I will be drinking a lot of as the weather starts to warm up again. ROSCOE

  21. Lone Star Creek Vineyard Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2020
    Lone Star Creek Vineyard Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2020

    Upper Yarra Chardonnay. Single vineyard. Made by Franco D’Anna. I’m always surprised – in the best of ways – when I see the price of this.

    It’s racy in style but it has the texture, complexity and length to pull it off. It tastes of lemon curd and sprays of fragrant herbs, though nectarine and cedar push through too. I don’t overtly see flint here but it’s suggestive of it; it’s a vibe thing. There’s also a mineral water note, amongst it all, which works beautifully. We are now a couple of years from this wine’s vintage but it still feels as though it’s a couple of years from really being ready to drink at its best, though of course there’s enjoyment to be had now. Value once again is very high. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, Wine Front

    Guigal Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2018

    I'm always amazed at the quality this estate gets in the Côtes du Rhône, especially at the quantities produced. Their 2018 Côtes Du Rhône is well worth seeking out and has a medium-bodied, round, silky style as well as textbook peppery herbs, violets, bouquet garni, and both red and black fruits. It shows the supple, charming, forward style of the vintage and is ideal for drinking over the coming 4-5 years. JEB DUNNUCK

    Looking more complex and complete than the 2017 at this point, the 2018 Cotes du Rhone still has a year or so of élevage ahead of it. It has a slightly herbal, briary note, dark berry fruit and hints of mocha on the full-bodied palate. Round and fleshy, it finishes smooth and velvety. WINE ADVOCATE
