  1. Bleasdale Vineyards Sparkling Shiraz NV
    Bleasdale Vineyards Sparkling Shiraz NV
    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

  2. 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

  3. Riversdale Estate Riesling 2019
    Riversdale Estate Riesling 2019
    Riversdale Estate is located in the basin of the Coal River Valley, in Southern Tasmania. The Coal River Valley is the second largest wine region in Tasmania and continues to grow each year as a result of the unique growing climates located in the Valley. Riversdale is located in the basin of the valley and is the only vineyard to front Pittwater which gives temperature advantages during the winter and summer months.

    Due to the climate advantages it is able to produce 9 different varieties with a reputation for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Riesling. Riversdale Estate was purchased in 1980 by Ian Roberts for Angora goat purposes. The first vines were planted in 1991 and are some of the oldest in the region. PWS

    The first thing you notice is the intense burst of cooked apple-like flavour, its tang intact, its flavours singing. The second is the texture, which is a step up on most young rieslings. This is a floral, spicy wine with excellent fruit concentration, but with more than a little character to boot. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, James Halliday

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. 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.

  14. Chaffey Bros La Conquista Tempranillo Grenache Graciano 2017
    Chaffey Bros La Conquista Tempranillo Grenache Graciano 2017

    The Chaffey boys don't own any fruit and this thoroughly works to their advantage. Being able to source the best old vine material and best plots gives them an edge over mother nature while allowing access to some awesome fruit. This is usually a blend of 65% Barossa tempranillo, 25% old vine Barossa grenache, and 10% graciano from Eden Valley.

    Lifted and bright this about pure drinking pleasure. A bit of licorice and spice with punchy fruit and pepper to the fore. Mid-weight in style with everything in its place. Perfect Wed night wine. PWS

    Barossa blend of tempranillo, garnacha and graciano.

    Great drink. Up-front with blue- and black-berry fruit flavour with lacings of peppercorn and coal. It feels gentle and refreshing and yet it’s hearty in volume terms. Bright with flavour. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine front

  15. Wickhams Road Gippsland Pinot Noir 2020
    Wickhams Road Gippsland Pinot Noir 2020

    From the same vineyard as the Gippsland Chardonnay; guided through the winery to show maximum regional expression, has dark fruits and savoury finish. The fruit is sourced from our own vineyard in Gippsland. We travel down to Gippsland once a week to tend the vines. The wine is destemmed without crushing and left on skins for 25 days. We use a mixture of natural and cultured yeast to achieve a balance between fruit and complexity. The wine is bottled without filtration or fining. HODDLES CREEK ESTATE

    Again, this year I fancy the Gippsland over the Yarra.

    Strawberry, spice, light perfume. It’s light-bodied, all the strawberry juice and subtle autumnal/smoky tones, fine dusting of emery tannin, some pepper on spice on a cool finish of good length. Likely to build a bit more complexity with time in bottle. Good release. Pretty. GARY WALSH, The Wine Front

    Palliser Estate Pencarrow Pinot Noir 2018

    Palliser Estate planted in 1984 is one of the pioneers of the Martinborough region. Martinborough only produces 1% of New Zealands' wine but is now synonymous with growing and making great wine. All the wines are 100% estate grown from six vineyards situated on the revered Martinborough Terrace, 25% of which are under organic management with the aim to take this to 100% by 2025.
    Like so many of the great producers its not just the quality of the wines the produce but the consistency that makes them so impressive which makes Pencarrow, undoubtably, one of the greatest value wines coming out of NZ. PWS

    Martinborough pinot.

    It scratches the pinot itch and then some. Keen buying/drinking to be enjoyed here. Complex, undergrowthy, herb-strewn flavours meet solid, varietally-styled fruit. Dry tannin and plenty of savoury spice note; it’s a winner. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

  17. Bondar Rose 2020
    Bondar Rose 2020
    A blend of 95% Grenache and 5% Cinsault, sourced from four sites with a range of soil types--from the white sands of Blewitt Springs to the cracking, black clays of Whites Valley. Fruit from all four blocks was hand-picked, then crushed and left to sit on skins for varying amounts of time (three, six and twelve hours).

    Two parcels of Grenache were fermented cooler, while a smaller parcel of the Estate Grenache and Cinsault were fermented warmer in old oak, providing a 'funky' blending fraction that brings food-friendly grip and texture. A pale, fleshy and deliciously red fruited rosé from a producer that can do no wrong. Perfect balance and some lovely complexity make this an exceptional buy.

    This is one of our favourite Rose's the last couple of years and Bondar seem to just produce hit after hit. This is so dangerously drinkable - you have been warned! PWS

    2020 Langtons Yarra Valley Wine Show
    GOLD MEDAL

    A traditional winemaking approach with whole berry/bunch fermentation in open vessels for three weeks followed by a 9 month maturation in French oak barrels.

    Crimson Red in colour with a maroon hue. A sophisticated mix of fruit and spice aroma’s on the nose. With crushed strawberry, red cherry and pomegranate, element of spice and a touch of earth from the whole bunch inclusion add complexity. The palate displays a lush and layered density of fruit with dark cherry and red berry flavours with plush fruit tannins woven in adding complexity. There is a soft yet bright acid line providing drive and length to wine before the classic fantail finish of a great Yarra Pinot Noir.

    Selon Letang Cinsault 2019
    A range of wines that express the character of their grape varieties in Guillaume's preferred style, hence 'Selon Létang' (according to the winemaker Guillaume Létang). The style? Sleekly built but with plenty of flavour - nailed it!

    This 'croquant' Cinsault is bright and deliciously enjoyable. Unoaked, vibrant redcurrant and raspberry fruit with a wild, delicately tannic herbaceous edge. There is an almost Pinot Noir like edge to these wines or a north-west Spanish feel with its minerally flecked fruit. Either way it's a lovely Cinsault and makes us wonder why we don't see more. PWS
