  1. Soho Wine Co Peggy Sauvignon Blanc 2020
    Soho Wine Co Peggy Sauvignon Blanc 2020
    Fabulously fruited and brightly expressed with feijoa, Granny Smith apple, lemon/lime zest and floral aromas on the nose, followed by a flavoursome palate delivering excellent fruit intensity and juicy acidity. SAM KIM, Wine Orbit

    This is part of the entry level range from the highly regarded Soho wines. A combination of Wairau & Awatere Valley's in the Marlborough this straddles a wonderful bridge between the tropical fruit bombs and more racy versions of sauvignon blanc we see in regions like the Adelaide Hills. It does it with style and grace too and doesn't leave any of that Marlborough goodness out but in a more focused and fine package.

  2. Wicks Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2020
    Wicks Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2020
    Wicks Estate is a family owned and operated wine company producing hand crafted wines from their vineyard located at Woodside in the picturesque Adelaide Hills. This premier cool climate wine growing regions is perfect for pinot and the team at wicks have crafted a wonderful example here of what the Adelaide Hills can do when treated right.

    This is multiple clones and multiple batches all fermented separately and all of the Woodside Vineyard site. Bright and airy on the nose with that white pepper spice from the whole berry ferments. There is a lovely zip to the palate that carries the core of punchy fruit beautifully. A little bit of spice, crunchy fruits, some fine tannin all come together to give this a bouncy and buoyant feel. This is a nice little chisel and texture here something you don't normally expect from a wine at this price. Really well done.

  3. Adelina Eternal Return Arneis 2021
    Adelina Eternal Return Arneis 2021

    I’d have to say, the 2021 white wines are looking very good. This is from a 1990 planted vineyard in Kuipto, and a portion sees a little time in barrel.

    Musky perfume, green pear, some raw almond, a citrus and smoky candle thing happening. Fresh, crunch and tang, almost a lime and Riesling-like intensity, a little chalky texture, frisky and pretty long. Maybe not the most typical style of Arneis, but such a good drink. A smattering of dried green herb bitterness in there, which is nice. I like it. Excellent GARY WALSH, The Wine Front

  4. Murdoch Hill Chardonnay 2021
    Murdoch Hill Chardonnay 2021

    If you haven't guessed it by now we are big fans of Murdoch Hill under and winemaker Michael Downer. Michael formally trained as a winemaker at Adelaide University with stints in wine regions of the world and harvest experience in Adelaide Hills, Barolo, Italy, Great Western, Victoria. Then came home to lead the winemaking at Murdoch Hill. Freshness and vibranct is the game here and he nails it!

    This is from the highly anticipated 2021 vintage sourced from a selection of vineyards in the Adelaide hills. Vintage 2021, some say is a vintage of a lifetime so get in on this. The wine displays the usual elegance and restraint we are used to seeing from Murdoch Hills. Always laced with subtle complexity from barrel fermentation and the region’s hallmark bright fruit flavours it screams quality from the get-go. A core of citrus, green apple, and grapefruit drives the palate, supported by lively acidity and structure. Great concentration and fruit with a buoyant and cheerful demeanour.

  5. 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

  6. Beyond the Pines “Viceroy” Syrah 2020
    Beyond the Pines “Viceroy” Syrah 2020
    This little gem comes from a mate and ex-employee Matt Keoghan and sourced from his family property in the Adelaide Hills. The family have been in the business for ages so know what they are doing when it comes to putting out quality fruit and this certainly delivers.

    This sees about 40% whole bunch and ten months in old oak with no additions and just a touch of sulphur at bottling.  It's the kind of syrah we love, elegant in style that ties in pretty, violet florals, dark berry and mulberry fruit with a dash of green herbs and olive. Judicial oak frames the sweet fruits nicely, Succulent and soft but doesn't shy away from being a little bit serious too.

  7. 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

  8. Murdoch Hills The Ridley Adelaide Hills Pinot x3 2021
    Murdoch Hills The Ridley Adelaide Hills Pinot x3 2021
    Murdoch Hill under the guidance of Michael Downer is just kicking goals, left, right and centre. Not only does he make great wine but we think he is a bit of a bloody legend too! Michael formally trained as a winemaker at Adelaide University with stints in wine regions of the world and harvest experience in Adelaide Hills, Barolo, Italy, Great Western, Victoria. Then came home to lead the winemaking at Murdoch Hill. His approach is to make wines focused on being honest to their origins employing winemaking techniques that give freshness and vibrancy resulting in delicate but forward wines with wonderful energy.

    This is his red blend of pinot noir, pinot meunier and pinot gris. We often gravitate to this wine when he comes to visit though everything he does is excellent. A bit of whole bunch throws up some exotic spice with a smokey underly from the meunier. A full gambit of bright red fruits, crunchy and juicy jostle for your attention while a fine film of soft tannins thread there way through the pristine fruit. It's plump fruit distracts you from its quite complexity and this would be equally at home on the dinner table or at a BBQ.

  9. Murdoch Hill Phaeton Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2021
    Murdoch Hill Phaeton Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2021

    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 of Piccadilly below Mount Lofty. 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. Natural yields are extremely low, providing fruit with structure and persistence.

    Each parcel separately, both with a portion of whole berries and whole bunches (30%). The wine was raised in mostly French oak puncheons and barrique (approximately 10% new) for nine months, then bottled without fining or filtration.

  10. Murdoch Hill The Landau Adelaide Hills Syrah 2018
    Murdoch Hill The Landau Adelaide Hills Syrah 2018

    Always puts me in mind of Martin Landau, who played the boss man in the TV series “Space 1999”.

    Nutty, peppery, brown bread and red berries. It’s medium-bodied, fleshy and meaty/nutty, attractive grip from tannin, perhaps a bit poached red fruit and rhubarb in flavour, finish is of moderate length with pepper, ripe tannin and hazelnuts. Not the most focussed of wines, but very Hillsy and good to drink. GARY WALSH, The Wine Front

  11. Turon LTD Lobethal Syrah 2018
    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
