  1. Vajra Langhe Clare JC Nebbiolo 2019
    Vajra Langhe Clare JC Nebbiolo 2019
    Wow, the 2019 Vajra Clare JC explodes from the glass with masses of crushed raspberry and strawberry fruits, complicated by sweet and savory herbs, along with crushed stone minerality. On the palate, fleshy textures are quickly firmed up by a mix of tart red berries, with zesty acids, a slight frizzante spritz, and a coating of liquid violet florals. The finish is long and lightly structured, displaying a lasting and unmistakable note of red licorice with hints of spiced orange. This is wonderfully expressive and bridges the gap between Red and Rosé; please pour me another. Of note, the 2019 Claré JC was gently fermented with about 20% whole cluster fruit with malolactic completed in stainless steel, hence the perceivable effervescence. ERIC GUIDO, vinous.com

  2. Isole E Olena Chianti Classico 2019
    Isole E Olena Chianti Classico 2019
    Made with 83% Sangiovese, 15% Canaiolo and 2% Syrah, this lovely, delicious red races out of the gate with enticing scents of perfumed berries, blue flowers, forest floor and baking spice. Smooth and savory, the juicy palate features ripe Morello cherry, crushed raspberry, white pepper and star anise alongside polished tannins. It's already drinking beautifully but will also offer several years of sheer pleasure. (94) KERIN O'KEEFE

    I tasted the 2019 Chianti Classico from a pre-bottling core blend. Supple and racy, the 2019 hints at the greater textural richness and suave tannins found in the Cepparello. Spice, mint, dried cherry and herbs add pretty shades of nuance. ANTONIO GALLONI

  3. Ulithorne Corsus Vermentinu 2012
    Ulithorne Corsus Vermentinu 2012

    Made by Rose Kentish at the Vino Vecchio winery in Corsica (French-governed island west of Italy / southeast of France). I don’t much love the price but three releases in – I do love the wine itself. Super drinking. Gorgeously aromatic and, most of all, textural. It’s an experience. Melon, wax, citrus, brine, honeydew and honeysuckle. Thoroughly delicious. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

  4. Applecross Pinot Noir 2018
    Applecross Pinot Noir 2018
    The Applecross wines are always lovely… it has to be said, in the overall scheme, they represent outstanding value. These are wines to latch onto.
    This 2018 Pinot is dry and twiggy but the fruit is there, all juicy and jaunty, with cranberry aspects in with the red cherry, and a sheet of spice-studded tannin extending from the mid-palate onwards. There's a touch of Aussie Bush Spice to the highlights here but the shadows are alive with complex flavour. This is one of those lighter styles of pinot that the Yarra does so well. Yes. This is good. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

    Once again this is a ripper. I love the Chard but it is really hard to go past this. Fragrant, spicy, red fruited and enticing. I love the sense of appeal here, it's a Pinot I want to smell and taste as it unfurls in the glass. It's graceful and poised in its buoyant delivery of almost juicy, red berry fruit that is tinged by faint elements of spice and underbrush all  encompassed with super fine, filigreed tannins that stop it from wandering in to the realms of quaffable, which is a shame really, the wine is so pleasurable now that I just want to drink it with abandon but there is a serious aspect to it that keeps me intrigued and focused. Wonderful. Gorgeous stuff. ROSCOE

  5. Marchesi Alfieri La Tota Barbera d'Asti 2019 (Screwcap)
    Marchesi Alfieri La Tota Barbera d'Asti 2019 (Screwcap)
    Unashamedly one of my favourite releases of the year. La Tota is up there with the best of Barbera which is up there with my favourite wines to actually drink. By that I mean, drink, not talk about but drink. With friends, food, family. The 2019 is cooler, brighter and snappier than the last few years. It hits a lighter blue fruit and tart red berry spectrum with plenty of lift and perfume to the aromatics. Cool, fresh, long and plump in the mouth. There is the volume Mario seems to capture every year but it’s a little more reigned in, more of a lively feel. Spanking. Absolutely spanking! ROSCOE

  7. Suavia Soave Massi Fitti 2018
    Suavia Soave Massi Fitti 2018
    What a wine! Peachy, pears, white flowers, a little banana skin, fresh oily herbs, galangal flowers, earthy minerality, gently spicy. It has it all going on. Uber fresh and loaded with personality. A little more aromatically extroverted than the last couple of years. Hits the palate and makes a big impact upfront with a push of plush fruit that is swept away with a burst of energy and then kept focused across its impressive length. Big and bold flavours that are matched by pretty intensely fresh acidity and punctuated with little veins of minerality and pithy, chalky texture. Texturally this wine is bang on the money. I absolutely love it. Crying out for food. ROSCOE

  8. Frankland Estate Isolation Ridge Syrah 2019
    Frankland Estate Isolation Ridge Syrah 2019

    If you have been following my journey through the less big and bold Syrah/Shiraz, you will know I like them silky, pretty and a teeny bit savoury.

    The Isolation Ridge is a perfumed and pretty riot on the nose, all violets, damsons, roses, thyme, blackberries, vanilla, baked quince and pencil shavings.

    The palate is elegant and refined and from that rollercoaster of prettiness comes a refined fresh fruit acidity, supple tannins, black coffee, liquorice and that beguiling combination of floral notes in a well structured but not overly weighty Syrah. This is still a baby bundle of juicy and youthful mulberries, raspberries, damsons and plums, showing the beginning of what I expect to be a delicious and ever changing life. Very smart.

  9. Idlewild Grenache Gris 2013
    Idlewild Grenache Gris 2013
    The Gibson Ranch is the most historical section of McDowell Valley Vineyards and includes these 100+ year old dry farmed treasures. The winemaking is our interpretation of the Ramato style Pinot Grigio's of Northeast Italy; in other words, this isn't quite a Rose nor is it a Red wine. Rather, it is a skin and stem fermented Grenache Gris that shows both fresh delicacy and structure.
    230 cases produced. IDLEWILD WINES

    Bright pink. Perfumed aromas of raspberry, cherry, blood orange and flowers, with a spicy nuance adding vivacity. Shows very good energy on the palate, offering intense red and dark berry flavors sharpened by juicy acidity. Finishes minerally and firm, with strong punch and lingering spiciness.  JOSH REYNOLDS

  10. Idlewild Fox Hill Vineyard Dolcetto 2013
    Idlewild Fox Hill Vineyard Dolcetto 2013
    The 2013 Dolcetto Fox Hill Vineyard is fabulous. Dark red and purplish fruit, spices, menthol and tobacco meld together in the glass, with firm Dolcetto tannins that emerge on the mid-palate and finish. This is another absolutely joyous, delicious red to drink over the next year or so. ANTONIO GALLONI, www.vinousmedia.com

    (one-third of this wine went through carbonic maceration with whole clusters; two-thirds was destemmed and received a five-day cold soak)
    Bright red. Cranberry, cherry, anise and fresh herbs on the nose. Juicy and light on its feet, with a distinctly sappy quality to the brisk, dry flavors of cherry, red berries and licorice. No obvious sign of oak here (it was aged in neutral French barrels). Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and a touch of dryness. I find this very easy to drink. STEPHEN TANZER, Vinous Media

  11. Antoine Olivier Bourgogne Blanc Les Deux Dindes 2018
    Antoine Olivier Bourgogne Blanc Les Deux Dindes 2018

    The Olivier vineyard's was established at the end of the 60’s after Antoine Moreau-Chevalier left vines to son, Hervé. After the family domaine was split between Antoine and his sister a few years ago he has worked tirelessly to transform the estate into a force to be reckoned with.

    He was one of the first to see the potential the vineyards had for producing great Chardonnay. With his eye on sites particularly suited to whites he has slowly built up a stable of exceptional vineyards, some of which had been abandoned for over a century.

    Fruit is sourced from Verze in Macon. He likes this particular terroir as it gives him good freshness and energy, unlike so many Macon which he considers fat. PWS

  12. Domaine de la Mordoree Cotes du Rhone 2020
    Domaine de la Mordoree Cotes du Rhone 2020
    This is a super charged Cotes du Rhone. If you are thinking of a reasonably simple, straightforward, gluggable (ok it may have some of that about it) red then you are in for a treat. It hits all the right notes with upfront, big, bold fruit. Some of the regional garrigue, crushed rock, aniseed, little wafts of something more perfumed, it's a lovely mix of enticing and serious. That fruit almost tips over in to plump and easy going but the tannins pull it all in and keep everything grumbling along. I know the general rule would be to drink a CDR straight away but I would really love to see this guy in five years or so. Don't get me wrong, drink up buttercup, its great right out of the gate, but there is enough in the tank to make sure it builds a little more nuance over a handful of years too. In the scheme of things this is insane value and just goes to show why so many people hold this estate up as one of the greats. Everything they do at every level is excellent. ROSCOE

  13. Ronco dei Tassi Pinot Grigio 2020
    Ronco dei Tassi Pinot Grigio 2020

    Ronco dei Tassi, Friuli Venezia Giulia - Ronco is Friulian for ‘hillside, terraced vineyard’. Ronco dei Tassi is named after the badgers (tassi) in this little nook of paradise in the heart of Collio, bordering the splendid Plessiva National Park. Established in the 80s by Fabio Coser, this small winery has a large worldwide following. Meticulous vineyard work on terraced slopes lends purity and elegance to the wines.

    Finely boned, this offers subtle tones of alpine spice, green pear and wet stones. These same aromas are echoed on the palate. There's a thread of fine phenolics running through, finishing with a savoury chewy finish. A lovely composed grigio. GABRIELLE POY, PWS

    Chateau Grand Boise Cote de Provence Sainte Victoire Rose 2020

    Containing an unusually high proportion of Syrah for the region (50%), with a blend of Grenache (40%) and Cinsault (10%) making up the balance, Chateau Grand Boise's 2020 Cotes de Provence Sainte-Victoire Rose is a pale, copper-tinged salmon wine offering scents of crushed stone and grated lime zest, accented by just hints of pie cherries. It's light to medium-bodied, crisp and refreshing, with a delicacy and minerality that sets it apart. JOE CZERWINSKI, The Wine Advocate

  15. Le Cinciole Chianti Classico 2018
    Le Cinciole Chianti Classico 2018
    The 2018 Chianti Classico is a wine of magnificent purity and class. Lavender, sage, tobacco and cedar open first, leading to a core of dark red/purplish fruit. Savory and earthy, with terrific persistence, the 2018 has so much going on. Readers will find a deep, layered Chianti Classico full of character. The 2018 will benefit from a few years in bottle, as it is a bit tight at this stage. ANTONIO GALLONI

    Thistledown She's Electric Grenache 2021
    The Vagabond is superlative, but this is extraordinary! The tannins, taut, febrile and wound across a spool of sage, thyme and blood orange zest. The drive of red cherry, rhubarb and Mediterranean herb is palate staining, without ever reneging on its sandy, vibrant and effortless hand. Incredibly complex. Scintillating length. Kerpow! NED GOODWIN MW, Halliday Wine Companion


    Dark raspberry, sage and thyme, spice and dried roses. Medium-bodied, ripe raspberry, silky and sooty tannin, perfume of bergamot and gentle twist of amaro, a sort of stony/earthy character, almond and fine grip on a long and fragrant red berry finish. Beautiful wine. And it needs more time. GARY WALSH, The Wine Front

  17. Applecross Chardonnay 2018
    Applecross Chardonnay 2018

    Applecross is the personal label of Dave Bicknell.
    Instant love here. This is a beautifully settled, flavoured, textured and extended chardonnay. It's alive with white peach and cashew, preserved lemon, white flowers and grapefruit, honeysuckle and almond. Everything is measured, everything is balanced. And the linger of flavour here, wow, it's quite something. This is a beauty. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

    It's a little easier going than last year's. Plenty of nuance and detail. Lovely purity to the expression of fruit but it's underpinned by some smoky, grilled cashew and subtle incense notes. The palate is perfectly pitched with an effortless feel to the wonderfully exuberant expression of Chardonnay that oozes class and presents with a real degree of confidence as it powers across your mouth. There is real intensity here. Real focus and drive, but it all just melds together in a seamless package. Tremendous effort. ROSCOE
