  1. Dandelion Vineyards Menagerie GSM 2019
    Dandelion Vineyards Menagerie GSM 2019

    Elena Brooks crafts full-bodied wines across South Australia’s premium regions: Adelaide Hills, Eden Valley, Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Fleurieu Peninsula. She endeavours to draw upon vineyards untempered by over-management, as much as she strives for a softer impact in the winery. As a result, Dandelion wines are increasingly bright, transparent and stamped by a more sensitive oak régime than in the past. Grenache, a strong suit. JAMES HALLIDAY

    Fermented spontaneously in open-topped vessels as whole bunches, before pressing to used French barriques for 12 months. Already approachable, rich and brimming with scents of kirsch, anise, rosewater, violet and a sluice of slightly grissly briary tannins coating the inner cheeks and roof of the mouth. Grenache's headiness rides above all else. NED GOODWIN MW, James Halliday

  2. Fonseca Late Bottle Vintage 2011
    Fonseca Late Bottle Vintage 2011
    The 2011 Late Bottled Vintage Port is an unfiltered field blend that comes with a bar top cork. It comes in at 108 grams per liter of residual sugar and was bottled in 2016, according to the label. Rather gorgeous, this fresh, tight and powerful Fonseca is perfectly focused, extracted and tightly-wound, finishing with intensity of flavor laced with some herbs and a hint of garrigue. Yet, everything is always in a very controlled fashion brilliantly supported by its structure. This is a beauty, another super 2011 LBV. MARK SQUIRES, eRobertParker.com

    This is a superb LBV from one of the richest and greatest producers of Port as well as from one of the greatest vintage in the last decaded. Highly reccomended!

  3. Fonseca Late Bottle Vintage 2012
    Fonseca Late Bottle Vintage 2012
    Fonseca is one of the great port houses famous for their rich and powerful styles of vintager Port. They also do a fantastic range of "lesser wines" that always are worth a look-in with their LBV's a particular favourite of ours. PWS

    The 2012 Late Bottled Vintage Port is an unfiltered field blend and comes in with 105 grams of residual sugar. It was bottled with a bar-top cork after five years in used French oak. Sexy but elegant, this is chock-full of delicious fruit, sweet on the end and relatively fresh. The mid-palate is just average in depth, but the classic Port flavors are all up front. In its youth, it does have a bit of an exuberant feel despite the freshness. Generally, people don't age LBVs with bar-top corks, but this can hold, if there no cork failure, and develop a bit too. Happily, you can also drink it right now. MARK SQUIRES, eRobertParker

  4. Koehler Ruprecht Kallstadter Saumagen Riesling Auslese Trocken R 2009
    Koehler Ruprecht Kallstadter Saumagen Riesling Auslese Trocken R 2009
    Clear and Baroque on the nose, the 2009 Saumagen Riesling Auslese trocken R starts with peanut brittle and caramel flavors (along with ripe and cooked apples) that lead to a full-bodied and elegant, tension-filled, clear and mineral palate that repeats the sweetish dessert flavors from the nose. However, the wine is pure, really dry, long, lingering salty and aromatically intense. I would decant it for several hours before I serve it but there is no hurry to get it out of your cellar.

  5. Philipponnat Clos des Goisses 2009
    Philipponnat Clos des Goisses 2009
    The 2009 Clos des Goisses has been very tight in two recent tastings, which is probably a very good thing for its long-term prospects, but less so for readers seeking the immediacy that is common in so many 2009 Champagnes. White flowers, orchard fruit, mint white pepper and citrus peel add to the wine’s bright profile. Readers should plan on being extremely patient, as the 2009 Goisses does not show much, if any, early appeal, even if the density and textural persistence of the great years are both there. The 2009 is 61% Pinot Noir and 39% Chardonnay. Dosage is 4.5 grams per liter. Disgorged: March, 2018. (96+) ANTONIO GALLONI
