As expected, the colour is vivid crimson-purple, and there are mocha/fruitcake flavours to burn, the tannins soft" (7/2014)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright purple. Lively scents of blueberry, blackberry, cassis and anise, with complicating floral and cracked pepper nuances. Silky, sweet and pliant, displaying good clarity and lift to its dark fruit and spicecake flavors. Quite expressive now, finishing with soft tannins and good spicy persistence. ...Read More »

2012 Kerrigan + Berry Riesling Mt. Barker Western Australia (Elsewhere $30)

96 points James Halliday: "The purity of varietal expression on the bouquet is paralleled by the tightly carved green apple, citrus and mineral of the palate. This is a classic Riesling simply needing time to burst into a shimmering display of flavours that will seek every corner of the mouth, and linger long after it is swallowed." (7/2013)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Riesling gives notes of freshly squeezed limes, honeysuckle and frangipani with nuances of lemon pastilles and wet slate. Dry, light-bodied and very crisp in the mouth, it offers a wonderful burst of citrus fruit flavor and a long, stee ...Read More »

2012 Innocent Bystander Syrah Yarra Valley Victoria

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(made with 40% whole clusters): Brilliant ruby. Assertive aromas of dark berry preserves, incense and Asian spices, with a suave potpourri nuance coming out with aeration. Juicy, focused blackberry and bitter cherry flavors are given lift by tangy acidity and a hint of cracked pepper. Shows excellent clarity and thrust on the finish, which clings with spicy urgency and gentle tannins." (8/2014)91 points Wine Spectator: "Fresh, expressive and light-footed, with delicate hints of sandalwood, black tea and mint layered around a lithe core of blackberry and licorice, lingering with ...Read More »

2010 Hewitson "Old Garden" Mourvedre Barossa Valley South Australia

97 points James Halliday: "Clear crimson; a wine that is complete and confident in itself, effortlessly filling the bouquet and palate with its small red and black fruits, a shimmer of tannins throughout, and a lingering finish. Vines planted 1853." (5/2013)96 points James Suckling: "Nick Stock: This ancient vineyard (planted in 1853) is a source of profound and distinctive wine that delivered handsomely in 2010. There's an unmistakably sanguine edge to this: meaty and earthy, darkblue fruits and a wealth of black, graphite-like terroir character. The palate scoops deep and even, really soulful dense tannins ...Read More »

2010 Chapoutier-Laughton (La Pleiade) "Cluster M45" Shiraz Heathcote Victoria (Elsewhere $80)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple, the 2010 Cluster M45 Shiraz has lovely floral and herbal notes wafting over a solid core of youthful blackberries and black cherries with nuances of Chinese five spice and cloves. Great intensity and balance in a rather modest medium-full body with great graininess to the tannins and plenty of freshness. It finishes long. Note that no 2011 Cluster M45 was produced. (LPB)" (2/2015)95 points James Halliday: "Medium red-purple; while I remain to be convinced the baume (and hence alcohol) level was necessary, it is fair to say that the wine carries it without undue ...Read More »

2012 Langmeil "Fifth Wave" Grenache Barossa Valley South Australia

The Fifth Wave Grenache comes from a once-neglected old vine vineyard in Lyndoch. Langmeil winemaker Paul Lindner saw the potential for the varietal from this vineyard, and helped rejuvenate the site. From the winery: 'Aromas of dark cherry and raspberry fruits mingle with sweet spice, vanilla, hints of savoury roastiness and white pepper nuances. Ripe, red berry fruit flows onto the palate, melding into lovely sweet and briary spice. The finish lingers on a pepper and spice note with typical chalky and youthfully firm tannins."

2012 Leeuwin "Prelude" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia

94 points James Halliday: "Light straw-green; it is a tribute to the quality of the Art Series Chardonnay that this should be Leeuwin's entry point wine; there is a perfect balance between the grapefruit spectrum and the white peach spectrum, oak a near-invisible net holding the parts together, the length exceptional"92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is remarkably lush and full-bodied, yet remains lively and mouthwatering.

2010 Yalumba "The Signature" Cabernet-Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "A 52/48% blend, matured in a combination of French, Hungarian and American oak, 35% new. The strengths of the vintage have been clearly transcribed. Medium-bodied but powerful. Blackcurrant, dried tobacco, sawdusty oak and mint. Freshness has been maintained. Tannin, oak, fruit and acid work as one. Beautiful example of a traditional Australian style."

2012 Yangarra Estate Rousanne McLaren Vale

92 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Grown biodynamically and matured in used oak. Tastes quite neutral at first but it reveals notes of nuts, ginger, honeysuckle and mineral as it opens and warms in the glass. Crisp finish but the palate is slippery and textural. Sweetish aftertaste. Delicious." (7/2014) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: This wine's flavours and aromas are more about the soil it grew in and the savoury characters of Roussanne than the primary fruit. The texture is its distinguishing feature, developed from the tannins in the skins, the waxy nature of the variety a... Read More »

2013 Harkham "Aziza's" Shiraz Hunter Valley (Sulphur Free / Kosher Winery)

Winemaker's Notes: "Hand harvested Shiraz grapes were gently fermented in the style of traditional producers from Southern France, the spiritual home of Shiraz. It has been bottled without the use of Preservatives (sulphur) or fining agents to convey the full flavours of the Hunter Valley. Blueberries crushed with a stone, backed with a subtle French oak spine. Brilliant ruby. Smoky cherry and blackberry scents are lifted by a minerally nuance and peppery spices. Sappy, penetrating and focused, offering sweet dark fruit and floral pastille flavors that g... Read More »
