2013 Xanadu Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Small batch open-fermented, 35% given extended maceration, blended and matured in French oak (40% new barriques) for 14 months. Xanadu paints an unerring landscape of intense, elegant Margaret River Cabernet, with a stream of cassis fruit bordered by gravelly but fine tannins, oak insistently completing the picture. Great value." (10/2016) 93 points James Suckling: "A concentrated darker fruited and dark green leafy and herb nuanced style that has power and plenty of tannin depth, long and rich. Mulberry and plum, supple and even. Great balance here." (3/2016) 93 points Vinous: "Inky ruby. Potent, miner ...Read More »

2016 Trellis (Amelia Park) Bordeaux Blend Margaret River Western Australia

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 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." (1/2015) 90 points Bob Campbell: "Good depth and hue of colour, the wine sweetly ripe and clean, fragrant and attractive in bouquet and flavour.

94 points James Halliday: "There's a nuclear arsenal of black and redcurrant, cassis, wild herb, black olive and charred, tarry tannins in each bottle of this wine, so handle with care. A big rib eye steak might be a good start, and someone to share the bottle. *Special Value Selection*" (10/2016) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Both pretty and complex, Clairault’s Cab is a heady mix of cranberry and tart cherry, florals, peppery herbs, pencil lead and some raw meat in the background.

Its flavors of red currants, jasmine and tar have forthright power, a zesty blast of Shiraz spice that leaves a clean, fresh taste in its wake. This performs far above its price, a wine to buy by the case and enjoy this winter into spring." (2/2017) 90 points Vinous: "Deep, lurid ruby.

2015 Shaw + Smith Pinot Noir Adelaide Hills South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "Light crimson; the bouquet is fragrant and floral with red fruit, spice and forest notes, the palate building on the scaffold of the bouquet. Here the accent is one excellent texture and length replaying the cherry fruit held in a savoury clasp. A wine that creeps up on you, the aftertaste a final hurrah." 95 points James Suckling: "A lighter, more pure and elegant expression from Shaw & Smith in 2015, this has bright cherry compote and fresh cherries - not to mention spiced strawberries, pastry-like and biscuity savory notes, gently peppered meat and all sorts of other complexity. ...Read More »

2015 Amelia Park Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot Margaret River

92 points James Halliday: "A small amount was wild-fermented in stainless steel barrels. It is a delicate, though precisely proportioned, wine with minerally acidity the foundation for the blend and its length. I like the chances of significant improvement over the next 2-3 years, but there's no prohibition of earlier enjoyment." (10/2016)

2014 Clairault "Estate" Chardonnay Margaret River (Black Label)

96 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Both this and its '14 sibling come from estate vineyards and are made in similar fashion, yet Clairault's own notes use totally different descriptors for each. It's not a question of volume, although I think that the significantly greater volume/intensity of this wine is the difference. Strange, but then that's the everlasting fascination of wine." (10/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Estate Chardonnay is a rich, opulent wine loaded with scents of toasted hazelnut or almond layered over white peaches and grilled pineapple. It even hints at popcorn ...Read More »

2013 Hentley Farm "The Beast" Single Block Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "Awesomely powerful, with a tsunami of sombre black fruits, licorice and tannins to match, overwhelm you the moment the wine enters the mouth. It is, of course, full-bodied, and doesn't have the fluid grace of the other Hentley Farm '13 Shirazs. It is indeed a beast, but will repay those who put their faith in the high quality corks used by Henley Farm." (3/2015) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz The Beast has an earthy/gamey nose with dried mulberries and preserved plums at the core, morphing into spice box, sandalwood and peppery notes. Full-bod ...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 »

2014 Torbreck "Woodcutter's" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

93 points James Halliday: "It struts its stuff in most impressive fashion; black berried fruits, anise, wood spice, all served sweet and voluptuous, with fresh red berries as the icing." (8/2016) 93 points James Suckling: "A beautiful expression of shiraz from Barossa with a freshness and linear length to it. Medium to full body, fine and intense. Spice and meat character is all here. Just hint of peanuts. Drink now. Screw cap." (10/2016) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "For an entry-level wine, this is excellent. The aromas and flavors feature smoky, stemmy, herbal goodness layered over blueberries and black cherries, while the palate is full ...Read More »

2016 Powell & Son Roussanne-Marsanne Barossa Valley South Australia (Previously $40)

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 »
