  1. Tournon Mathilda Rose 2018
    Tournon Mathilda Rose 2018
    M. Chapoutier Australia is the eponymous offshoot of the famous Rhone Valley producer. The business focuses on vineyards in the Pyrenees, Heathcote and Beechworth with collaboration from Ron Laughton of Jasper Hill and Rick Kinzbrunner of Giaconda. JAMES HALLIDAY

    The whole Tournon range offers incredible value and quality which I guess that should be no surprise given it is headed up by the un-compromising Michel Chapoutier. They are wonderful expressions of Aussie fruit with a European sensibility.

    The Tournon "Mathilda" Rose is so pretty and smells of rose petals and lively strawberry fruit. There is a hint of underlying grapefruit and that 'Provencal' peach. Its pristine and clean on the palate with pure red, spicy fruits that burst in your mouth. Super-refreshing! We couldn't believe the price when we tried this. PWS

  2. Route du Van Dolcetto Shiraz 2018
    Route du Van Dolcetto Shiraz 2018
    A passion project for The Dexter clan (Todd and Debbie) and Bird (Ian and Ruth, David and Marie) families sourcing grapes from all over Victoria to put into this fun label. Winemaker Todd heads up the team in winery so if that is not enough to get you interested then I don't know what is. Great stuff all round from the label but we think this wine is the most fun and interesting out of the lot.

    King Valley/Alpine Valley
    51% Dolcetto
    47% Shiraz
    6% Sangiovese

    A juicy little number with that loveley blue fruit clove spice hit you get from Dolcetto. The shiraz throw in some more darker broody fruit and the earthy peppercorn element as well. This is such a fun little wine that is screaming drink me now! Plush and pretty its a crowd pleaser. PWS

  3. Vinea Marson 'Jozza' Syrah 2015
    Vinea Marson 'Jozza' Syrah 2015
    If you love the wine of Marios at Vinea Marson you are going to love this. The wine is part of an export deal that unfortunately (fortunately for us) fell through. Needless to say this isn't uncommon in the world of wine and we get to reap the benefits.

    This has all the bells and whistles of Marios wines out of Heathcote and he has put just as much love into making this as he has his Vinea Marson range. Nice dark berry fruit with some pretty and lifted aromatics, sweet spices and elegant floral lilt. Its open and fleshy following through with black fruits that flow on a supple palate. A peppery hit at the close. Nice stuff.

  4. La Purisima Estio Tinto Monastrell Blend 2019
    La Purisima Estio Tinto Monastrell Blend 2019

    La Purisima is a sort of 'post-modern' co-op, doing some really sensational 'estate-style' wines from holdings of very old, dry grown, original clone, ungrafted Monastrell. La Purisima is in the township of Yecla, which gives its name to the Denominacion de Origen, D.O. Yecla, about 1.5 hours inland, due west from Alicante. It's also very high up, with vineyards as high as 1100m above sea level. Summer heat is tempered by altitude, while winter is both extremely cold, and also quite dry (average rainfall is 12 inches per annum.) No irrigation.

    Low crop, high levels of vineyard vigilance, organic growing techniques, picked in the cooler hours of the day (mornings) and packed into small crates, begins a process of meticulous winemaking. The grapes then go through several selection passes, followed by 'must' chilling and fermentation in stainless steel.

    The original clones of Monastrell grown on their own roots from old bush vines, dry grown. This is a simple wine, but really good. Very varietal warm bitumen/dried fig/honey/black fruit Monastrell, given a bit of a juicy-jubey touch up from the Syrah in the blend. Very silky to the tongue with decent length and a nice sense of taper on the palate to a finish where the fruit tannins live. PWS

  5. Rocky Gully Shiraz 2017
    Rocky Gully Shiraz 2017
    We are thoroughly impressed with the reds coming out of Frankland Estate at the moment. There estate Syrah is one of the best in the country and we make that call with confidence. What the Rocky Gully offers is the same commitment to quality in a fun and forward package. Sourced from estate and several other vineyards in Frankland river there is distinctive and delicious, cool-climate bent to this wine with its sweet, peppery spice and anise nose. Packed with black forest fruits and spicy finish this is the best we have seen from the Rocky Gully range we have seen so far. PWS

  6. Rive Droite Rive Gauche Cotes du Rhone 2018
    Rive Droite Rive Gauche Cotes du Rhone 2018
    Les Vignerons d'Estézargues is a small, innovative co-operative in the little town of Estézargues (20 kms west of Avignon) with a view creating top-notch Rhone with and excellent reputation and track record for quality. 

    They have access to over 400 hectares of quality vineyards with just 10 members with 400 hectares of scattered quality vineyards. The wine-making is towards natural yeast and minimal intervention to let fruit quality shine - a bold move for a co-op.

    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! PWS

    They have done it again. This is just pure drinking pleasure. Heady black fruits with red licorice, spice and raspberry flecked throughout. Mid-weight style with silky fruits and a plush palate. Its so gluggable. Bravo! PWS

  7. Peter Lehmann H & V Shiraz 2019
    Peter Lehmann H & V Shiraz 2019
    The H&V range are designed to showcase the diversity of the Barossa and in some ways challenge the views of what consumers think. The wine is a blend of mainly Barossa and a touch of Eden fruit which adds a lovely cool edge and offers great value.

    Nicel filled with plum, blackberry and dark chocolate flavours. There is a nod to 'traditional' Barossa with the use of American hogsheads. In saying that this is surprisingly elegant and wonderfully put together. Plenty of ripe blackberry conserve and a spicy, leathery lick. We are thoroughly impressed with this little number.

    De Bortoli Villages Tempranillo Touriga 2019
    15% whole bunch, 6 months in 500L French oak puncheons (5% new). 53/42/5%/tempranillo/touriga/shiraz. Vegan/vegetarian friendly. Plenty of Spanish-Portuguese love happening here with the vivacious tempranillo in a meeting of minds with touriga. Plush fruit meets firm tannins with dark cherries, red licorice, full spice. It's full-on flavour is whipped into a pretty tight tannic mould on the palate. JENI PORT, JamesHalliday.com

    Silver - International Wine Challenge London 

    Blueberry and purple fruit notes. A purple and fine elegant style with a lovely chocolate on the palate NICK ADAMS, MW

    We love the wines of Domaine Naturalist and Bruce Dukes is a man who walks to the beat of hist own drum. The vineyards sit in the cooler Wilyabrup GI and you can see this is in the Discovery syrah that presents with fresh cracked pepper and lifted spice over smokey and meaty, blue/black fruits. Plenty of punch in a medium bodied and fleshy number. This screams cool-climate style and we look forward to more like this from Bruce. PWS

  10. Vine Mind Shiraz Malbec 2017
    Vine Mind Shiraz Malbec 2017
    Vine Mind is the dynamic duo of Jen Gardner and Col McBryde designed to be a departure from the stoicism of Clare (although we may be responsible for some of that too). This is about setting a challenge and in our minds, winning!

    This is a blend of fantastic old vine material and in particular exceptionally tasty malbec out of the Clare. From 20-100 year old vines in the Springfarm sub-region on red sand over clay with limestone and slate through the sub-surface at 450m above sea level. Hand picked fruit, destemmed, lightly crushed, 60% whole berry fermentation with maceration between 10-30 days in concrete vessels. Aged in neutral French Oak Barriques for 12 months. 14% alc.

    "Blueberries, a lash of leather and orange jaffa cake… Well that's as a start, mint and satsuma plums are in there too. That all kind of rolls through on the palate, rasberry seeds, bay and citrus like acidity shape out the palate with a typical after dinner mint regional kind of thing on the finish." Col McBryde

  11. Jim Barry Lodge Hill Shiraz 2018
    Jim Barry Lodge Hill Shiraz 2018
    A very impressive wine at this price: the colour deep and bright, the expressive bouquet with earthy/spicy nuances to black fruits. The medium-bodied palate has an extra level of depth aided by supple tannins and a twitch of oak. The value cannot be gainsaid. (96) JAMES HALLIDAY

    Medium-bodied, and kind of crisp, but with ample flavour and a nice bit of tannin built in. Flavours are more into red fruits, with a flicker of mint and pepper, subtle spicy oak, and a fresh finish of good length. Stylish. A very good release of this wine. GARY WALSH

    Yelland & Papps Vin de Soif 2017
    Around 70% grenache, 25% mataro, 5% carignan from multiple vineyards with an average age of 87yo. Wild yeast-open fermented with a portion of whole bunches with some time on skins and touch of older oak to round it out.

    Its lifted and pretty on the nose that follows into a pure, plump and juicy plum and berry fruits, with a touch of sour cherry bite and plenty of spicy on the close. Sits somewhere between light and medium bodied with lovely balance and plenty of freshness. Juicy and up-front deliciousness that keeps on giving. We dare you to have just one glass! PWS

  13. Bests Bin 1 Shiraz 2018
    Bests Bin 1 Shiraz 2018

    It wasn't an easy choice this year, it never is. While we tasted a lot of great stuff, and there were a few contenders, this gem takes home the chocolates for a number of reasons, first a foremost among them is that is it great.
    This release of Bin 1 delivers a package of sumptuously juicy and immediately impressive fruit that can be drunk right out of the gate, as shown by the number of bottles I have consumed already. It also has a degree of class and sophistication with the inherent stuffing and filigreed tannins to carry it in the cellar for a period as it develops and grows in stature and gains detail. It is a wine that offers an expression of Shiraz that is completely unique to its region. A gorgeous example.
    The reason why it got the gong for my wine of the year though, you get all of this for very little hip pocket damage. A touch over $20, it is crazy value. In 2020 who doesn't need great wine that is also great value? That's why this is the Best (terrible pun intended) wine I have had this year. ROSCOE

    Syrahmi Demi Heathcote Syrah 2019
    Well, this is in form. Spicy, slurpy, a fine sheath of tannin, woody spice and twiggy savouriness, dark cherries, white pepper and a single clove, come to mind as ingredient. Slides along effortlessly, tumbles out of the glass with huge, rich and dark fruited and autumnal perfume. Where's the morels? Here's a wine for contemplation and easy drinking in the same fist. I love it. MIKE BENNIE, www.winefront.com

  15. Clos des Fées 'Modeste' Rouge 2017
    Clos des Fées 'Modeste' Rouge 2017
    Clos des Fées is relatively new in the wine world, beginning in 1998, when Herve and Claudine settled in Vingrau, on the high cool slopes of the northern edge of Roussillon. Buying up old and often abandoned vineyards from these high slopes, Herve has gradually amassed dozens of tiny plots, of which many are magnificent mature vineyards spread throughout these cooler slopes.
    Hand harvested, tiny yields of perfectly ripe fruit using minimal SO2 during the winemaking process resulting in wines show remarkable finesse and freshness. PWS

    "...wines that have turned heads every bit as much as does the local scenery and brought Bizeul well-deserved recognition as a beacon of Roussillon quality. ROBERT PARKER, The Wine Advocate

    A blend of 60% Grenache and 20% Syrah and 20% Cinsault made in a fresh bright slurpable style with strawberry and rose garden aromatics and pale colour yet packed with flavour and freshness and finesse. So pretty and engaging with lovely depth and texture and could be slightly chilled for best effect. PWS

    Crafted to be a fresh, easy-drinking red, the 2017 IGP Cotes Catalanes Modeste is light to medium-bodied, with ripe scents and flavors of black cherries, silky tannins and a crisp finish. It's a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. The Wine Advocate

    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

    Michael Hall Sang de Pigeon Shiraz 2017
    ...the wines are as impressive as his experience suggests they should be. JAMES HALLIDAY

    Michael was once a jewellery valuer for Sotheby's but moved to Australia in 2001 to pursue studies and a career in winemakeing - and we are glad he did. There is nothing in his porftolio that isn't either well crafted, beautifully handled and/or speaks so eloquently of place. His work in Australia and abroad is a veritable who's who of producers including Cullen, Giaconda, Henschke, Shaw + Smith, Coldstream Hills and Veritas. In France he cut his teeth with Domaine Leflaive, Meo-Camuzet, Vieux Telegraphe and Trevallon. Wow!
     
    Hand-picked in Greenock and Stone Well, wild fermented in open fermenter and closed puncheons, 5% whole bunch, matured in French oak barrels for 21 months (10% new). Blended with 15% Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills Shiraz. PWS

    Fruit takes the front seat here, blackcurrants, note of red fruit and a dusting of cinnamon spice. Medium bodied, smooth and loaded with velvety tannin. Nothing overdone or out of place.

  18. Torbreck The Struie 2018 375ml
    Torbreck The Struie 2018 375ml
    The Struie is a blend of both Barossa Valley floor fruit and higher Eden Valley fruit which relects the cooler side of the regions and for us has made it one of the go-to wines from Torbeck.

    The Eden fruit is sourced from vineyards sitting between 400 - 50 metres and lends a lovely focus to the fruit with a distinct line of fesh, minerally acidity, notable blue fruits and fine grain tannins. The marriage of 40 year old vines in the Eden and 80 year old vines in the Barossa off up the perfect marriage of elegance and intensity. PWS

    The Struie is a wonderfully aromatic and deeply concentrated wine produced from the harmonious combination of both regions, delivering layers of dark chocolate characters and defining structure. Nuances of plum, blackberries, violets and hidden spice characters all further enhance the natural elegance and tension of the fruit quality. The Struie will certainly age tremendously well over the next decade. TORBECK
