Australia

Kangaroo Vinyard 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.

2015 Penfolds "Bin 389" Cabernet-Shiraz South Australia (Elsewhere $63)

97 points James Halliday: "Matured for 12 months in American hogsheads (32% new). Unapologetically made with the don't fix if it isn't broken aphorism. It is tightly structured, with faultless attention to detail - wheels within wheels stuff, but inexorable in sending its black fruits (blackberry, blackcurrant) flavour message.

2015 Helen's Hill "Ingram Road" Pinot Noir Yarra Valley Victoria

94 points James Halliday: "Once again it applies the blowtorch to the value equation. It's varietal, complex-enough and quite exquisitely well composed. Its like a set of well-chosen words. Sweet-sour cherry, cranberry, dried herbs, sap. Oak aids texture and polish more than flavour, though oak spice through the finish is hard to resist. The words fleshy and fresh are apt here."

2015 Powell & Son G-S-M Barossa Valley South Australia Top Pick!
2015 Powell & Son G-S-M Barossa Valley South Australia

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Blended of 60% Grenache, 20% Shiraz and 20% Mataro, the 2015 Grenache Shiraz Mataro displays a medium garnet-purple color and nose of baked cherries, raspberry preserves and warm plums with a smoky/chargrill undercurrent and savory touch of yeast extract. Full-bodied with concentrated flavors in the mouth, it has a solid backbone of firm, ripe tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and savory. (LPB)" (2/2017) Jancis Robinson: "Proportions are about 70/20/10. 60- to 115-year-old vines. Same winemaking as on all the Powell & Son reds - ie fermented in open concrete ...Read More »

2011 Yalumba "Tri-Centenary" Grenache Barossa Valley South Australia (Previously $40)

93 points James Halliday: "Tangy, almost jubey raspberry and blackberry with shots of earth and spice. The appeal is both complex and straightforward at once. Spicy tannin plays stylishly through the back half of the wine. Just enough depth to give it a bit of gravity." 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editor's Choice* An outstanding effort in a difficult vintage, these old vines (the oldest were planted in 1889) have turned out a super wine. Complex aromas and flavors range from smoke, thyme blossom and licorice to apricots and black cherries. this is medium to full in body, with crisp acids and supple tannins th ...Read More »

2016 Powell & Son Roussanne-Marsanne Barossa Valley South Australia

92 points Wine Spectator: "Rich, with smooth and creamy peach, apricot and Asian pear flavors, accented by spicy toast and a whiff of roasted fennel. The supple texture and detailed finish go on and on. Drink now through 2027. 150 cases made." K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "Our Roussanne Marsanne is based on the style of the great Hermitage Blancs of the Northern Rhone Valley. We aim for richness, minerality and hedonism in this, our most premium white wine. While floral, bright in fruit and pretty in youth this wine should age to become savoury, complex and decadent in years to come." 94+ p... Read More »

2015 Thomas Goss Shiraz McLaren Vale

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackberries, dark cherries and lemon zest. Medium to full body that is dense and tight with lots of peppercorns and berries on the aftertaste. Drink now." 90 points James Halliday: "Various medals, including a remarkable gold medal from the Great Australian Shiraz Challenge '16. This is unusually elegant for a $15 McLaren Vale shiraz, with bright purple and black fruits and superfine tannins. *Special Value Selection*" 90 points Vinous: "Youthful purple. Spice- and smoke-tinged blue fruit and violet scents pick up a peppery nuance with air. Juicy and appealingly sweet, offering nicely concent ...Read More »

2015 Hentley Farm Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "Concentration of flavour and overall form and poise is quite incredible given that this isn't among the top-of-the-tree releases from the estate. This is where the wine drinker really is the winner. It's thick with flavour but remains buoyant, even jolly, with life. Tannin too shirks no issues whatsoever. Barossa at its best." (2/2016) 92 points Vinous: "(malo and 10 months of aging in French oak barrels, 15 percent of them new) Dark purple. Spice-accented cherry, cassis and licorice scents carry a smoky mineral topnote that gains strength as the wine opens up. Fleshy blackb ...Read More »

2015 Silkman Semillon Hunter Valley New South Wales

96 points James Halliday: "Bursting with lemongrass, lime and fennel, the palate flows effortlessly with momentum and energy through to a crystal clear finish. A long future guaranteed." 92 points Vinous: "Pale yellow. Pungent aromas of dried citrus fruits, beeswax and white flowers carry a chalky mineral overtone. Vibrant and focused on the palate, offering chewy pear skin and lemon pith flavors that deepen slowly and become more succulent and broad through the midpalate. Shows bright, stony character on the incisive, very persistent finish, which leaves behind sappy citrus fruit and chamomile notes. ...Read More »

2015 Tahbilk Marsanne Nagambie Lakes Victoria

95 points James Halliday: "The honeysuckle aroma of this marsanne bursts out of the glass when swirled, perhaps a hint of jasmine or field flowers too. The palate lives up to the promise and then some: the variety is often sotto voce when young, but here it is exuberant, aided by chalky acidity."

1981 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1981 stood out as slightly superior. Winemaker John Duval always felt this was a tannic style of Grange, but the wine has shed its tannins, and this is one of the few vintages where the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon was above 10%. Sweet notes of creme de cassis, cedarwood, charcoal, and barbecue spices are followed by a full-bodied, opulent wine displaying heady amounts of alcohol, glycerin, and density in its full-bodied, skyscraper-like texture. I was drinking this wine with great pleasure in the mid-nineties, yet here it is nearly 15 years late ...Read More »

2014 Powell & Son Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Barossa Valley Shiraz opens with rubber and tar notes giving way to a core of blackberries and black cherries plus underbrush, anise and pepper hints. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers a lot of expressive flavor in the mouth backed by ripe, grainy tannins and lively acid, finishing long and earthy. (LPB)" (6/2016) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "The Barossa Valley Shiraz is sourced from mature Barossa Valley vineyards with the majority located along the region’s North-Western ridge in Marananga and Seppeltsfield as well as Lyndoch...

2014 Moss Wood "Amy's" Cabernet Sauvignon Blend Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $38)

95 points James Halliday: "A blend of cabernet, merlot, petit verdot and malbec overflowing with a rainbow of cassis/blackcurrant redcurrant, plum and mulberry on the bouquet and palate alike. So much is the impact of the fruit, it buries the tannins, but allows the French oak to add yet another flavour. Why not tonight?" 93 points James Suckling: "Attractive blueberry fruits, cassis and red cherry too. A flinty graphite-like edge and subtle oak spice. Superb palate texture that's flawless, long and silky; blueberry fruit flavors run on velvety, fresh tannins, with blackberry to close. Drink now and for 6+ ye ...Read More »
