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.

2013 Jim Barry "Lodge Hill" Shiraz Clare Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $20)

93 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Full crimson-purple; the back label proclaims that the Lodge Hill Vineyard is the highest in the Clare Valley at 480m and the wine has cool-grown nuances in its bloodstream; jet black fruits have rivulets of licorice, pepper and spice with banks of fine, savoury tannins."

2012 d'Arenberg "Custodian" Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $20+)

94 points James Halliday: "Ah, how much is this wine worth when d'Arenberg has two '12 Single Vineyard grenaches at $103 each? A more difficult question for those single vineyard wines than this, which is a drop-dead bargain, its purple fruit flavours given shape and persistence by fine-grained, savoury/earthy tannins and 9 months in used oak." (1/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium ruby/purple, the 2012 The Custodian Grenache reveals aromas of crushed black raspberries and black cherries with roses and earth nuances.

94 points James Halliday: "Australian Wine Companion - "A 50% Cab, 37% Shiraz, 13% Merlot blend matured for 18 months in French (70%) and American (30%) oak (10% new), one of Wirra Wirra's celebrated foot soldiers. This really does over-deliver; while it's chock-full of luscious red and black fruits (more on the red side) it has good shape and texture, the finish very more-ish.

Deep-tinted wine but not heavy or overdone, with quite elegant flavours that include a cedar, cassis Cabernet character and sweetly luscious Shiraz.

2014 Sons of Eden "Freya" Riesling Eden Valley South Australia

Apple blossom and talc flavours aid this impression, as does a line of mouthwatering acidity. It's build to age, arguably, but as a young wine it's delicious." (1/2015) K&L Notes: "Freya" was the foremost goddess of ancient Germanic lands where the Riesling grape originated.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 53% Chardonnay and 47% Pinot Noir, undergoing 100% malo-lactic and aged for 24 months on lees, the NV Jansz Cuvee Non Vintage Cuvee has a citrusy nose of lemongrass and orange peel over notes of baking bread, straw and chalk dust. This brut style has fine, frisky bubbles and crisp acid that is nicely matched against a small amount of dosage (9 grams per liter), finishing long and zesty. Drinking now, it should remain fresh and vibrant for 2-3 years+." (6/2011) Vinous: "Light yellow-gold. Apple, melon and lemon on the fragrant, spice-accented nose. Fres ...Read More »

2012 Langmeil "Three Gardens" Shiraz-Mourvèdre-Grenache Barossa Valley South Australia

(HS)" (8/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 36% Shiraz, 34% Mataro, 30% Grenache, the medium garnet colored 2012 Three Gardens Shiraz Mataro Grenache is slightly reduced at first before eventually giving way to notes of kirsch, raspberry preserves and mulberries with hints of sauteed herbs, pepper and Indian spices.

2014 Yalumba "Old Bush Vine" Grenache Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $20)

92 points James Halliday: "The colour is light but brilliant crimson; the use of French oak isn't at all obvious in this light-bodied, but highly focused wine, with spicy red fruits and confection kept to a minimum. It is absolutely ready to drink immediately to appreciate its perfume and freshness." (7/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale garnet colored with a hint of purple, the 2014 Grenache Old Bush Vine offers enticing red cherry and raspberry preserves notes accented with suggestions of cinnamon stick, orange peel, red roses and white pepper.

2012 Leeuwin "Art Series" Shiraz Margaret River Western Australia

95 points James Halliday: "Has a bit of swagger about it. It's meaty and shot with pure, ripe plum flavour but while the tannin is velvety and well integrated it flexes its muscle from the mid-palate onwards, inspiring confidence in the process. You're in sure hands here. Clove, leaf and spice notes play a role, though in general the wine presents as seamless." (12/2014) 92 points Vinous: "(40% new French oak): Vivid ruby. Heady aromas of black raspberry, floral pastilles, Indian spices and woodsmoke, with a hint of vanilla emerging slowly. Smooth, sweet and expansive on the palate, offering energetic ...Read More »

2013 Sons of Eden "Romulus" Old Vine Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

92 points Wine Spectator: "This savory style weaves smoky, toasty sassafras and coffee notes through the dark berry and cocoa flavors, playing against a taut, polished texture on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2025." (11/2015) K&L Notes: Sons of Eden is a new project from two guys who really know what they're doing.

2010 Leeuwin "Art Series" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Bright crimson-purple; the fragrant cassis-filled bouquet sends its unequivocal message of that rarest of beasts: a totally delicious young cabernet that has a mellifluous palate of redcurrant and blackcurrant fruit supported by superfine tannins and subtle French oak." (2/2014) 95 points Decanter: "Lively, lifted cherry fruit. Medium body with impressive intensity and persistence. Vivacious, feminine and silky smooth, yet also with loads of stamina and energy." 94 points Wine & Spirits: "The purity of this Cabernet is impressive, it's clear black currant flavors fresh and crisp, uninhibited by its oak ag ...Read More »

2013 Giant Steps "Tarraford Vineyard" Chardonnay Yarra Valley Victoria (Elsewhere $40+)

97 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* The impact of this wine is achieved by stealth, the balance between fruit and acidity sheer perfection, leaving the flavours of white peach and nectarine to insinuate themselves on the long, lingering palate and aftertaste in the fashion that is the hallmark of Yarra Valley chardonnay at its best." 93 points Vinous: "Pale gold. Highly perfumed aromas of fresh orchard fruits, tangerine, white flowers and smoky minerals are complemented by a deeper hint of toasty lees. From a relatively warm vineyard but shows plenty of energy, offering juicy pear and ...Read More »

Jansz "Premium" Brut Rosé Tasmania

93 points James Halliday: "Pink, with a touch of salmon; strawberry notes ex pinot very obvious; a fun and flavour-filled sparkling with good length and balance." (12/2010) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This pale salmon rosé is a reliable sparkling wine at a very good price. The latest NV release is toasty on the nose, then offers just faint hints of peach or berry flavors. It's lithe yet creamy on the palate, with a long finish. (JC)" (2/2012) 90 points Wine Spectator: "A very pale rosé, with just a hint of berry poking through the smoky, toasty aromatics. Deft and elegant in texture. Drink now.

2013 Howard Park "Leston Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Both opulent and fine at once. The bullseye has been hit dead centre here. Oak, fruit, acid and tannin all pull together. Excellent wine, builds its own landscape. Blackcurrant-like flavour, luscious, is slipped with coffee-cream, leather, cigars. Dusty, fruit-filled tannin winds its way through, inexorable, unhurried, a river flowing over smooth long stones. The longer you sit with it, the lower the price seems." (7/2015) 92 points James Suckling: "Lots of dark fruit such as blackberry and blueberry that turns to red earth and rust. Full body, round and velvety tannins. Juicy fruit ...Read More »
