  1. Cantina Tollo Rocca Ventosa Pinot Grigio 2020
    Cantina Tollo Rocca Ventosa Pinot Grigio 2020
    Cantina Tollo is located in the Italian village of Tollo in the region of Abruzzo. The  vineyards spread from the coastal slopes to the verdant mountains overlooking the Mediterranean.

    They produce incredible value wines from the traditional varietals of the region. A modern and thoughtful producer they have farmed the lands here for over 60 years with a view to sustainable agriculture and protection of their traditional lands.

    This is text-book stuff. Steel and concrete tank with no oak. Crisp and crunchy with a minerally hit on the nose reminiscent of white pepper and ground quartz. Easy fruit that is plush and forward with a fresh cut to the mid-weight flavours. Hard to beat at this price!

  2. Merinas Airen Viura 2020
    Merinas Airen Viura 2020
    A blend of Airén, Viura and Verdejo grapes from organic dry-farmed vineyards. This is under the Mesta umbrella of which we have featured numerous wines over the years. They represent incredible value given the quality material that goes into their wines. Here, the vines are over 30 years average age and managed as an integrated ecosystem where no pesticides are used, organic manure is the only fertiliser applied and weed control is done by light, superficial tilling.

    There is a lovely soft mix of peach, apple and summer tree fruits sprinkled with a gentle white pepper element. Round, juicy and refreshing with punchy flavours that burst onto the palate. Unoaked and unadulterated and all the better for it. It finishes crisp and clean.

  3. Finca Las Moras Malbec 2020
    Finca Las Moras Malbec 2020
    What a belter of a drop! Mulberry and black currant to the fore with and engaging wild herb edge to the sweet fruits. The palate is medium-bodied and plump through the middle. Some sweet, soft tannins pull the fruit through and keep it all zipped up in a nice little package. This is nothing more then what it is supposed to be :delicious and ridiculous value. Is it going to change your life? Probably not. Are you gonna smash in about 5 mins with some pizza and a couple friends? Almost guaranteed. PWS

  4. Domaine de Triennes Rose 2020 375ml
    Domaine de Triennes Rose 2020 375ml
    A winery with great pedigree, Triennes is a joint venture between Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac and Aubert de Villaine from Domaine de la Romanee-Conti and is located in the Var, to the East of Aix en Provence. 

    Farmed organically since 2008, the aim of the estate is to produce wines that speak clearly of the bright sky and diverse terroirs of the region. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cinsault, Merlot, Grenache and Viognier provide the raw materials for their stunning range of wines from their pale, savoury rose through to the characterful rich reds for which Provence has become famous.

    We've said it before but year after year this is always such a lovely bottling. Hints of wild strawberry, a touch of red currant and fresh cut peach all jostle in an airy and fragrant nose. Not too heavy, not too light it has lovely plush fruit under-pinned by gentle acidity. It would be a chameleon on the table pairing with so many foods. PWS

  5. Santa Ana Homage Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
    Santa Ana Homage Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

    Bodegas Santa Ana was founded in 1891 by Don Luis Tirasso, who was a pioneer in the viticulture development in Argentina. For over a century, Santa Ana winery has harmonized tradition and technology, which has resulted in Santa Ana wines being recognized for its quality at National and International levels.

    Innovation is the key to Bodegas Santa Ana's success and their devotion to continually improving the quality of their wines.

    This is classic cabernet territory here but in a focused and mid-weight style - think a combo between Margaret river and Yarra Valley. Black-currant and cocoa dusting on the nose with a touch of beautifully directed oak that just peaks in at the right time. Medium bodied all the way with perfectly sweet fruit buttressed by fine tannins and is finely poised. Spot on and so easy to enjoy.

  6. 22 Degrees Kaleidoscope of Mayhem Halo White 2020
    22 Degrees Kaleidoscope of Mayhem Halo White 2020
    A relatively new label of Ashley Ratcliff of Ricca Terra, bringing together familiar varieties with new, climate adaptive planting. We are big fans of what he is doing and big fans of this style of white particuarly with warmer weather creeping in. This a the perfect blend of zip and punch with plenty of character and so easy to down.

    Blend here is Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Vermentino and Zibbibo.  A fun, leap-from-the-glass style, Sauvignon's tropical fruits meet the unmistakably grapey qualities of Zibbibo, a summer fruit salad of flavours.  Juicy and gluggable, though under its overt appeal there's some interest, focus and proper complexity.

  7. Sensale Grillo 2020
    Sensale Grillo 2020
    IF you don't know it Grillo is a native to the island of Sicily and the Sensale bottling from Cantine Europa has to be one of the best value options around. The wine comes from the western part of the island and is made without any use of oak and is deliberately styled for early and easy drinking.

    Notes of citrus, pear and stone fruits open with a bit of sea-spray action that lends a slightly salty twang to both the nose and pallet. There is definitely a bit of flesh and punchy fruit with citrus to the fore followed by a little stone fruit and minerally hit. We love the way the fruit and savoury clip play off each other in the mouth and just a little hint of bitterness make this the perfect pairing to Mediterranean seafood. Mwah!

  8. Insieme Pinot Grigio 2020
    Insieme Pinot Grigio 2020
    The Bruni family works with farmers all over Italy for the Insieme label, producing wines which are delicious, top value, and varietally and regionally correct. This is not the first time we have featured their wines and it certainly won't be the last. They offer exceptional value but also that little something that you just can't quite put your finger on.

    Raised without oak, this is a fruit driven expression, pushing against the neutrality of some of these styles.  Pear and green melon fruit, juicy and a crackling mineral undertone, beautifully textured and has some personality about it.

  9. Chalk Hill Europa Shiraz 2020
    Chalk Hill Europa Shiraz 2020
    Chalk Hill is a family owned wine company dedicated to making small batch, hand crafted wines of distinction. The Harvey family grape growing heritage goes back six generations in South Australia, and they now have six vineyards (two of which are Certified Organic and the rest sustainably managed) spread across the beautiful McLaren Vale wine region. The home vineyard was first planted in 1897 and these century old vines still bear fruit today. It is the family commitment to make wines that reveal the unique place that is McLaren Vale, and to showcase the efforts from the vineyard to the bottle.

    Each of the seven parcels are treated separately and this sees a combo of steel tank and older oak so remains beautifully fresh, lifted and pure. A perfumed nose with red and dark berry fruits combining with milk chocolate, spice and roasted nuts. Medium to full bodied, this wine is beautifully balanced with layers of red and blue fruits up front. The finish is plush and slippery with beautiful fruit buttressed by fine tannins.

  10. Chateau Coupe Roses Fremillant Rose 2020
    Chateau Coupe Roses Fremillant Rose 2020

    Situated in La Caunette, a small and beautiful village in Minervois, just close to the Montagne Noire the family of Françoise Le Calvez, his parents, son and daughter have created something incredibly special from this little corner they have carved out in the Mediterranean hinterlands.

    Today the vineyard holdings total 143 acres with an assortment of some 40 plots in total, mostly on the mountain plateau standing high above their village of La Caunette. At 750 – 1350 ft above sea level these are some of the highest sites in the AOC. The warm days and cool nights result in one the longest growing seasons in the region. Regardless the wine remain wonderfully fresh and vibrant.

    A wonderful Provence style rose but with a little extra meat on it bones. The high mourvedre count gives this a beautiful earthy spice element that lingers gently over red and black currant fruit, orange peel and pithy citrus fruit. Still in the medium bodied category this has a little extra heft and comes of feeling firm and full as well as bright and fresh. Juicy fruits and a spicy finish bring it all together nicely.

  11. Gunderloch Fritz Riesling 2020
    Gunderloch Fritz Riesling 2020

    How do they do it? This has been a PWS favourite for some time now and it never fails to deliver. Made by Rheinhessen legends Gunderloch with vineyards  close to the Rhines south-east steep slopes. The combination of the red slate soil, the proximity to the river, the exposure to the sun and the steepness of the vineyards - are perfect for producing wonderful ripeness. If you are a German riesling fan it would be hard to beat this for the sheer quality and insane value it represents.

    The wine shows lovely stone fruit, peach and pithy characters as it opens in the glass. There is a salty mineral hit to that is really lovely. The fresh natural acidity zip through the ripe and spice flecked palate while a little aromatic lift gives this some real interest. Dry, fresh and full of character. PWS

  12. Rive Droite Rive Gauche Cotes du Rhone 2020
    Rive Droite Rive Gauche Cotes du Rhone 2020
    Rive Droite Rive Gauche simply means right bank, left bank and the name derives from fruit for the wine being sourced from both sides of the river - the grenache coming mainly from the left (gauche) and the Syrah from the village of Daumazan (on the rive droite), near Tavel. It is also a French film starring the rotund wine-nut actor Gerard Depardieu - fun fact!

    This is a lovely fresh and crunchy styled Rhone from our friends at Rive Droite. There is touch of thyme and bay over red spiced fruits, layered with a little bit of red liquorice. This is a medium bodied rendition with a pure core of raspberry, wild strawberry and splash of black berry fruit in the mix. Its lithe with a lovely fresh cut to the sweet fruits that makes this look wonderfully elegant and damn easy to like.

  13. Winery of Good Hope Pinotage 2020
    Winery of Good Hope Pinotage 2020
    The newest independent winery run by Alex Dale and friends in the Helderberg sub-region, is an emerging star on the Cape wine scene producing wines of complete quality, yet expressing their individuality. John Platter the doyen and king maker has already tabbed them as 5 star winemakers.

    This wine displays a refreshing yet juicy palate with black berries, plums, wild black fruits and a wonderful, natural sucrosité. This is energetic and fresh with the fruit lending itself perfect to the whole-berry fremermentation that gove this a lovely spice hit. It has a lithe texture with integrated, supple tannins and some attractive spice on the finish. Incredibly moreish! They certainly have captured the essence of the beautiful cape in the bottle here.

    Ricca Terra Bronco Buster White 2020

    This crazy and delicious blend from vermentino, fiano, greco and arinto grapes is produced by Ashley Ratcliff and family from the Ricca Terra farms of Riverland, South Australia.

    There is a lovely chalky and green melon that greets you on the nose that flows into succulent nashi pear and green tree fruits. It’s a bit like trying to catch wind with you hand as all the spicy fruit and mineral laden falvours and aromas rush around your senses. Crisp and dry with lip-smacking fruit and refreshing acidity that makes you want for more. So good!! PWS

    Cantarrana Verdejo 2020

    The Agrícola Castellana Cooperative, situated in the heart of the Rueda D.O., was set up in La Seca (Valladolid) by small number of dedicated vine growers wishing to add value to their products.

    Today, it consists of some 400 members who cultivate 2000 hectares of vineyards with modern equipment for the production of 7 millions of litres of wine per harvest and facilities for manufacturing one million of these in oak.

    The Bodega has up to date machinery for the reception of the grapes, pneumatic presses and temperature controlled, stainless steel vessels for fermentation, all of wich have contributed enormously to improve the quality of the wines.

    Another spot on release brimming with summer fruit salad, with a lovely peachy lift. It's juicy and fleshy with just a little snap on the palate to keep it fresh. Drink don't think! PWS

  16. Antonio Soave 2020
    Antonio Soave 2020
    Set in the foothills before the Dolomites - with most sites sitting between 250-500 metres, the wines of Antonio Fattori are a masterclass of focus and definition. His gift is to let the varieties - Garganega for Soave, Pinot Grigio and more recently Durello and the Valpolicella red grapes which speak brightly of their origins.

    These wines are fantastic and this must be one of the best value Soave's around. Lovely up-front peach and soft green almond tinged fruit greet you. There is a lovely zip to the palate and some nervy energy countered by pure and plush fruits. This is modern, stylish and very tasty.

  17. La Boca Malbec 2020
    La Boca Malbec 2020
    La Boca is sourced from vineyards in the Uco Valley, Argentina at elevations of up to 3500 metres. Purity and freshness is the key here with modern winemaking and very little oak to hide behind.

    The high altitude vineyards lend a lovely lifted quality to the fruit on the nose and in the mouth.
    Mulberry and black currant fruit give way to black spice and heady aromatics of violet that you don't often see. The well-established older vines yield wonderfully concentrated fruit at the core of the wine and the minimal fussing in the winemaking means that the pure fruits are allowed to shine. Plush and forward but with a lovely snap of acidity and round tannins that hold everything in check. Good stuff!

  18. Airlie Bank Pinot Noir 2020
    Airlie Bank Pinot Noir 2020

    You’ll likely buy it for less than the RRP listed here, which is a good thing for the consumer. Another excellent wine from the master of complexity at entry level prices, Tim Shand.

    Orange peel, amaro herbs, red fruit, spicy, and very savoury. It’s light, kind of juicy, but bright and complex, sappy and a little bit ‘out there’, slight smokiness, energy and crunch, and all-round deliciousness of drinking. Finish is good. Love this. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

    This always has a good chunk of whole-bunch to bring out the spicy Pinot fruit and it does it so well in a fresh and buoyant style.  Red cherried fruit bursting through with an orange peel twang and plenty of sweet spice notes carry it through to the racy and vibrant finish. No oak of oak its just pure, fresh and utterly smashable. PWS
