    Love the texture of this. The polish. Red and darker berry fruit flavours with inputs from graphite and clove. It’s suggestive of woodsmoke and fire, in a complexing way. But the really lovely thing here is the feel of the fruit and indeed the feel of the tannin, both of which feel fine and meticulous. The jubey nature of the fruit is pretty delicious too. It’s a complex wine but it’s very, very easy to drink/like. CAMPEBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

  3. Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay 2018 375ml
    Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay 2018 375ml

    Shaw + Smith M3 Chardonnay is a wine of note. It’s a wine with a view, as in we all have one of it. It’s come a long way over the years.

    I like my flint and funk but when I first opened this it was alarming. It was a matchbox factory. Some chardonnays need a decant and a wait. Give this time and it shows both power and poise, its grapefruit, custard apple and stone fruit flavours woven expertly with cedar, oatmeal, almond milk and matches. It has a quartz-like aspect, a bristle to its brilliance. It’s narrow but it’s not lean; there’s more than enough power to its fruit. It should drink quite sensationally, from appropriate glassware, in another 2-4 years. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

  4. Shaw & Smith Shiraz 2017 375ml
    Shaw & Smith Shiraz 2017 375ml

    It’s from such an unusual/cold/late season that shiraz was picked four weeks later than average.

    It’s a peppery, twiggy, bunchy shiraz. It smells, feels and tastes like the result of a cool season. This wine will split drinkers down the middle. It’s smoky, herbal, berried, smooth-skinned and stringy at once. It both walks the tightrope and is one. There are menthol, alpine herb, walnut and peppercorn characters here in abundance. There are also substantial ropes of well-placed tannin. It’s a medium-bodied wine with a great deal to say. CAMMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

    What can we say about this wonderful producer? Nothing that hasn't already been said. The consistency and quality is really quite astonishing and with Adama Wadawitz at the winemaking helm this a trend that will continue its upward trajectory. Their secret has been to continually improve and tweak the operations and that shows in every bottle. One of Australia's great estates. PWS

  5. Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay 2019 375ml
    Shaw & Smith M3 Chardonnay 2019 375ml

    haw & Smith can seem to do no wrong. I know you have probably heard us use that line before but when we say it, we say it for a reason. Shaw + Smith was established in 1989 by cousins Michael Hill Smith MW and Martin Shaw and have continued to build a formidable team including Master of Wine David LeMire, Senior Winemaker Adam Wadewitz, Business Manager Grant Lovelock and Group Viticulturist Murray Leake.

    Certainly Adam Wadewitz has been a driving force and even as the wines continue to change and evolve there is no doubt to the talent that he brings to the game. This is possibly one of the best release of M3 and continues to be one of Australia's great Chardonnay's. PWS

    Shaw + Smith M3 Chardonnay is in quite exceptional form.

    Brilliant release. Great intensity both to the palate and the finish and with plenty going on besides. Flint, smoke, grapefruit and stone fruit characters but it’s the emphatic energy of the finish that really sets it apart. One sip and I was hooked, convinced, and in its thrall.

  6. Murdoch Hills Sulky Rouge 2016
    Murdoch Hills Sulky Rouge 2016
    50% Syrah, 25% Pinot Noir 25% Merlot Syrah from an early harvest sourced from our estate vineyard in Oakbank, spontaneous ferment with varying levels of whole bunches combined with a gentle extraction to keep the wine vibrant and delicate. Merlot made in the same technique from a vineyard in Lenswood giving a lush soft red/blue-fruit spectrum, whilst a selection of Pinot Noir from Piccadilly Valley provides exotic spice and a savory edge. Overall a vibrant red-fruited wine with gamey meaty qualities that show bright cherry fruits and underlining spice, the juicy fruit flows on the palate to a fine grainy tannin profile. Only a short maturation in older French oak to retain freshness and purity of fruit, sent to bottle without filtration or fining. MURDOCH HILL

  7. Gentle Folk Vin de Sofa Red 2021
    Gentle Folk Vin de Sofa Red 2021
    Gareth and Rainto Belton are the faces behind the Gentle Folk label based out of the Basket ranges in the Adelaide Hills. Gareth farms their three vineyards working organically and shying away from additions as much as possible in the winery.

    The Vin de Sofa is a pun on the French wine term Vin de Soif - an easy drinking, don't think too hard and just enjoy the wine term. Each vintage the wine changes depending on season and whims.
    This year is a blend of Adelaide Hills vineyards, with pinot noir bunches in neutral French barriques, pinot gris pressed into stainless steel, and syrah and sangiovese destemmed and left on skins.

    Its open and sweetly perfumed with spicy red fruits and black raspberry wrapped in wild meadow herbs and dry bay. Its soft and juicy in the mouth with succulent fruit. The sangiovese adds a lovely drop of savoury tannin that gently lines the pallet and carries it along giving a mouth-watering and more-ish edge to the wine. You could chill it lightly if you were so inclined but whatever way you have it, it is straight-up delicious.

  8. Scout Wines Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2017
    Scout Wines Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2017

    No details to hand and a new outfit on me, but the wine is very good. Chardonnay from the Adelaide Hills.

    Here we go. This has the crackle of quality. It's well fruited, is bursting with spice, has flint tucked into its shirt and fig slung around its neck. Acidity tears through the wine like a kid at a new bike. Flavour chases right on after it. This is one of those 'all we have learned' wines. You can feel history past and present informing its every step. I'm not mentioning value. The wine does it for me. (95) CAMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

  9. Sidewood Pinot Noir Oberlin 2018
    Sidewood Pinot Noir Oberlin 2018
    Sidewood’s first single clonal release of the Burgundian (Dijon) clone of ‘Oberlin’. Sourced from only 9 short rows of Oberlin Pinot Noir from our Mappinga Road, Oakbank Vineyard. The grapes were wild yeast fermented in small batches using 100% whole-bunch fruit. The wine was then matured in older French oak barrels, with 85% of the parcel being blended into our Estate Pinot Noir. SIDEWOOD

    Sidewood Pinot Noir Abel 2018
    Legend holds that the Abel clone first travelled from one of the best vineyards of Burgundy by way of a gumboot. Making its way to New Zealand in 1975, the ‘Gumboot Smuggler’ was caught by a NZ Customs’ officer, Malcolm Abel, who incidentally was the first to plant the mythical cutting on his vineyard. Our Abel Pinot Noir was handpicked from SA’s first plantings of the clone. Wild yeast and small batch ferment, followed by maturation in French. SIDEWOOD

  11. Murdoch Hill Tilbury Chardonnay 2019
    Murdoch Hill Tilbury Chardonnay 2019
    There’s gold in them thar hills. A little struck match, lime and white nectarine, almond, white flowers and spicy biscuits. It’s cool and precise, with just the right amount of flavour to match its fine structure. Feels good, and lightly chalky, bright and very long. Superb modern Hills Chardonnay here. (95) GARY WALSH, The Winefront

    A very enticing nose of white peaches, lemon juice and grapefruit peel with crushed stones, wet chalk and flint, as well as attractively integrated, hazelnutty oak. The palate has a very succulent, fresh and fleshy feel with a beautiful core of concentrated lemons and peaches. So intense and so balanced, the succulent, lemon and grapefruit finish is impressively pure and powerful. Drink or hold. Screw cap. (96) NICK STOCK, Jamessuckling.com

    More tightly woven, restrained and nascent than the estate chardonnay, although jittering with an energy that only patience, time, or an aggressive decant will unspool. Confident, unfettered and finely tuned. Nothing astride or unnecessary. Curd, apricot pith, grapefruit pulp and nectarine lurk beneath a veneer of classy oak. The intensity written. The finish long.

    Murdoch Hill Tilbury Chardonnay 2020
    The 2020 Tilbury is drawn 50/50 from a vineyard in the Piccadilly Valley and Murdoch Hill's Oakbank Estate Vineyard. This is a pure, rich and riveting expression of Adelaide Hill's chardonnay.

    Green apple, lime juice, floral notes, a little capsicum and green herb in the mix too. Lively, crisp, juicy to taste. Lots of pure, virtuous chardonnay action here. That little gummy pucker to close keeps things freshened up too. MIKE BENNIE, winefront.com

    Turon LTD Lobethal Syrah 2018

    A single vineyard, Adelaide Hills Syrah. 100% whole bunch. Wild ferment. 30 cases produced.

    Hand-picked, open-fermented, basket-pressed, matured in a single French hogshead for 15 months. Doesn't seem it was a new hogshead, but 1yo. The colour is excellent, the wine a compelling mix of luscious dark fruits, finely tuned tannins and oak providing texture and balance. (95) JAMES HALLIDAY

  14. Murdoch Hills Phaeton Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2019
    Murdoch Hills Phaeton Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2019
    The Phaeton is a blend of fruit from two vineyards in the Piccadilly Valley. The first site lies at 520 meters altitude outside the town, below Mount Lofty. It's easterly aspect provides Downer with a delicate, fine wine with pretty aromatics and pure, red fruit notes. The second vineyard, also with an easterly aspect but in Ashton, sits on a steep slope at 560 meters on rather shallow sandstone and hard soils.

    A pinot with finesse and power in equal parts and one that delivers alluringly layered, complex style on release. The nose has almost tarry notes, as well as toasted spices and intense red to dark cherries, blackcurrants and violets. The palate is just so crunchy and vibrant, delivering sleekly refined tannin and almost paper-fine texture. Long, fresh and intense. NICK STOCK, jamessuckling.com

    Shaw & Smith Shiraz 2019
    This is as good as it gets for cool-climate styled shiraz. Every year they get better by a bit and that is saying something given how good they have been for the last 5-1years. Elegant and suave with black, peppery fruit that races a fine and straight line. Wonderful balance in a vibrant and beautifully composed framework of fine tannin interwoven with gentle, sweets fruits. This is an exercise in less is more. As we say every time - the boy can make wine (Chief winemaker: Adam Wadewitz). PWS

    Ngeringa Syrah 2019
    Savoury notes over red berry fruit character. Tobacco, turned earth, dried leaves, sour cherry, raspberry going on. A suppleness in texture, mouth-filling and good, generous but fresh with more of that savouriness and earthy character of the perfume now spiked through dark cherry and plummy fruit. Tannins weave, acidity perks, it’s a fancy feeling, excellent wine. MIKE BENNIE, The Wine Front
