Australia

Australian wine is easily among the fastest growing categories in our inventory. While many equate Aussie wines with “value,” there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world. It is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, but commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since.

2014 Shoofly Pinot Noir Yarra-King Valley Victoria

90 points James Halliday: "Light, clear colour; there aren't many pinots from the Yarra and King Valleys buzzing around with this degree of varietal fruit, its varietal purity suggesting little or no oak. It's a drink tonight bargain of some magnitude." (10/2015) 90 points Vinous: "Bright red. Lively and focused on the perfumed nose, displaying fresh red berry, potpourri and five-spice powder scents along with a hint of smokiness. Lithe and subtly sweet, offering vibrant raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter and spicier with aeration. In an elegant, fat-free style, with silky tannins ...Read More »

2015 Riposte "The Dagger" Pinot Noir Adelaide Hills South Australia (Elsewhere $20)

94 points James Halliday: "**Top 100 Reds Under $20** Full crimson-purple hue; a fine web of earth and spice is wound through the dark cherry and damson plum fruit of both the bouquet and palate alike, providing an extra measure of texture and structure. Still in its infancy, but promises much for the future - and an enticing price. (Halliday on Winemaker Tim Knappstein) - With 50+ years of winemaking and more than 500 wine show awards under his belt...the prices for almost all of the wines are astonishingly low."

2012 Wakefield (Taylor's) "St. Andrews" Single Vineyard Shiraz Clare Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $50)

96 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Slightly turbid/cloudy rim to the colour, although the hue is bright; it's very clear this has been made from an exceptional parcel of estate fruit, for it has an elegance and length not commonly found in the Clare Valley; likewise, its range of spicy red fruits merging with gently savoury/earthy nuances is exceptional." 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This is wonderfully complex and aromatic, with scents ranging from baking spices and savory beef to mixed berries.

2012 Howard Park "Leston Vineyard" Shiraz Margaret River (Previously $20)

As the Shiraz vines in Margaret River have become mature, so has the depth of the fruit intensified, this wine a prime example, as its layers of black fruits and almost creamy tannins show; needless to say, the cedary impact of the French oak also plays a significant role." (2/2014) 95 points Sam Kim: "A lovely, perfumed bouquet: aromas of dark plum, blueberry and floral with hints of white pepper and cocoa on the nose.

(3/2014) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "This gentle cabernet is long on elegance and herbal spice. It offers a rich texture without tannic overload, its foresty fruit ranging from red cherry to boysenberry. A coastal cabernet for venison or other lean meats." (10/2014) 90 points Vinous: "Vivid ruby. Pungent scents of fresh cherry, blackcurrant and pipe tobacco, with a smoky nuance coming up with aeration. On the palate, gen ...Read More »

Wow! An insane value in Cabernet from famed (Jimmy Watson Trophy Winner) winemaker Jeremy Gordon. Trellis is a new line of wines from Margaret River-based Amelia Park. The fruit, as with all of Amelia Park's wines, is sourced from some of the best vineyards in the region.

2015 S.C. Pannell Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills

There is a subliminal savoury edge to the bouquet and palate, possibly from more than one yeast at work, and also to crisp, crunchy acidity. You pick up the extra level of flavour from ripe (not overripe) fruit on the back-palate and finish. Has the X-factor many Sauvignon Blancs lack."

2014 S.C. Pannell Syrah Adelaide Hills

95 points James Suckling: "A very handy follow-up to the previous vintage which won the coveted Jimmy Watson Trophy, in fact, this could be a nose in front in terms of quality. The 2014 vintage was cooler, than 2013, producing a more compact, composed and muscular wine. It sacrifices nothing in terms of immediate appeal and polish though, all blackberry and black cherry fruits with plenty of spice, a little peppery edge and a thread of dark graphite-like stony allure. The palate is saturated in flavor with a mesh-like weave of fine, well-defined tannin. It's got all the promise of ...Read More »

The fruit aromas run through red, blue and dark tones, chocolate and liquorice, a hint of coal smoke too. On the palate there's a very supple, fine and even sheen of tannin, soaked in redder fruit flavors. This has terrific depth, elegance and purity. A blend of old vine Shiraz and Grenache." 95 points James Halliday: "A shiraz grenache blend, the grapes from old vines. The colour is vivid and deep, its promise fully rea ...Read More »

A lovely wine that can be appreciated now but really needs to be cellared for quite a few years to fully appreciate its star quality." 95 points James Halliday: "A 51/49% blend from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Wrattonbully and Coonawarra that spen ...Read More »

2013 Penfolds Bin 28 "Kalimna" Shiraz South Australia (Elsewhere $33)

95 points Bob Campbell: "An inky Shiraz, rich, dense and chewy with dark berry, liquorice and tar underpinned with spicy oak. Heroic wine that needs to be matched with fairly robust red meat dishes or allowed to age in bottle for at least a few years. Solidly structured with sweet tannins. Very impressive." 94 points James Halliday: "Sourced from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Padthaway and Langhorne Creek; matured for 12 months in used American hogsheads handed down from prior duties with Grange, Bin 389 and so forth. Healthy and deep colour, it has a rich bouquet with licorice, spice, dark chocolate an ...Read More »

2012 Chapel Hill Grenache "Bush Vine" McLaren Vale South Australia (Previously $30)

94 points James Halliday: "Clear, vivid crimson-purple; this is what Australian grenache is, or should be, about: scoops of cherry, raspberry and plum fruit sit in a web of gossamer tannins." (1/2014) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet with a hint of purple, the 2012 McLaren Vale Bush Vine Grenache has aromas of kirsch and raspberry preserves with underlying cinnamon toast, orange peel and rose petal hints. Full-bodied with tons of red berry and baking spice flavors on offer in the mouth, it has wonderfully silky tannins and a long, lively finish. Drink it now to 2020+. (LPB)" (7/2014)

2012 Yalumba "The Signature" Cabernet-Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

98 points Sam Kim: "A formidable wine of outstanding richness, yet it’s sophisticated at the same time. Complex aromas of black/blueberry, dark plum, floral, game and vanilla lead to a velvety palate that delivers awesome intensity and opulence. A gratifying wine from an exceptional vintage. Surely this is the best wine made under this label of fifty-year history. At its best: 2022 to 2042. Signatory: Robert Hill-Smith." (8/2015) 96 points James Halliday: "Spent 20 months in high quality French, Hungarian and American oak barrels made in Yalumba's own onsite cooperage. This is one of the richest and mo ...Read More »

2012 Hentley Farm "The Beast" Single Block Shiraz Barossa Valley

96 points James Halliday: "*2015 Winery of the Year* Hentley Farm has a single-minded focus on producing what is as close as you're ever going find in Australia to a Grand Cru Burgundy or a First Growth Bordeaux. Estate-grown grapes come from a single block high on the hill, with shallow soils and even sunlight exposure resulting in very small berries. Deep, saturated crimson-purple paints the scene for a wine bottled Jan '14, with untold layers of black fruits, ripe tannins and integrated oak; bitter chocolate and poached plum flavours are in the mix too. Tasted 2 months after be ...Read More »

2014 Kilikanoon "Killerman's Run" Riesling Clare Valley South Australia

90 points James Halliday: "Flowery apple and citrus blossom aromas; attractive fresh Riesling, crisp and wellbalanced, with lime and lemon fruit flavors. Good now, better in a few years." 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Killerman’s Run Riesling begins with aromas of white pepper, lemon juice, apples and, aniseed then moves to an open and approachable palate that has wonderfully crisp acidity and very good fruit intensity. It finishes long and zesty." 90 points Vinous: "Green-tinged straw. Aromas of fresh peach, melon, jasmine and ginger, with a hint of white pepper emerging slowly with air. Silky and open-knit, offering ripe ...Read More »

2012 Cape Mentelle "Wilyabrup" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $40)

95 points Decanter: "Well-tempered, tightly coiled and classically elegant. Effortlessly crafted and exceedingly persistent, a second label with the longevity, self-assurance and poise of many premier wines." 95 points James Halliday: "45/33/24% cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc, destemmed and berry-sorted, then fermented for up to 30 days; matured in French barriques (40% new) for 16 months. A high-toned, savoury wine with plum, tobacco and cedar all in play, the tannins fine, the balance impeccable."

2013 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Previously $100)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Amon Ra has youthfully toned-down notes of blackcurrants, blackberry preserves, plums and cracked pepper with nuances of licorice, dark chocolate, cedar and black earth. The palate has wonderful balance and elegance for its commendable concentration and fullness, with tons of muscular fruit and spice layers framed by grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with great persistence. (LPB)" (6/2015) 95 points James Halliday: "From vines between 50-130 yo, yield 2t/ha; open-fermented in 1 and 2-tonne pots, post-fermentation maceration, mat ...Read More »

2013 Sons of Eden "Remus" Old Vine Shiraz Eden Valley South Australia

95 points Bob Campbell: "Very deep red/purple colour, the bouquet rich and chocolate-ripe, bright and concentrated, deep and plush with fleshy extract aplenty and loads of soft tannin and alcohol. The wine is very full-bodied, concentrated and plush - power-packed but with remarkable softness of texture. A terrific shiraz. Drink 2019 to 2038. (Huon Hooke)" 94 points Wine Spectator: "Densely packed, with black pepper accented black cherry, plum and floral flavors that nestle into a bed of plush tannins, finishing with intensity and depth. The finish just keeps expanding. Drink now through 2025." (11/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep ...Read More »
