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."

2013 Jacob's Creek "Two Lands" Cabernet Sauvignon South Australia

Full disclosure here... I have always considered Jacob's Creek as more of a big grocery store brand and haven't often carried the wines at K&L. However if there is one thing I've learned being a wine buyer it's to always be prepared to change your opinion and to let your palate do the decision-making. I was quite simply blown away by the value for the money this Cab delivers.

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.

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 »

2013 Glaetzer-Dixon "Überblanc" Riesling Tasmania

96 points James Suckling: "An eerily Germanic accent to the nose of this wine (just as you get from the name), this has a fascinating fragrance to it with deep and ripe fruit aromas of nectarine, peach and baked yellow apple, plenty of spice, yellow and white flowers too. It sharpens aromatically with air, turning more citrusy and tight. The soft texture of this riesling really caresses the palate, smooth and even; it makes a hint at sweetness and yet has immense clarity and pared back zesty appeal. This is packed with rich lime fruit flavor. A clever wine from the pristine island ...Read More »

2014 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $40)

96 points James Halliday: "From old vineyards in Krondorf, Marananga and Eden Valley, open-fermented with submerged cap (header board), matured for 15 months in French oak (35% new). Succulent, rich and powerful, with predominantly black fruits and some spice. The hallmarks are its supple mouthfeel and effortless balance." (10/2016) 93 points Vinous: "(raised in large French oak barrels, 35 percent of them new, for 15 months) Inky ruby. Powerful aromas of blackberry, violet and woodsmoke are complemented by a hint of cola that emerges with air. Sweet, seamless and full-bodied, offering ripe cassis, bl ...Read More »

2013 Leeuwin Estate "Art Series" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $80+)

98 points James Halliday: "It is supremely elegant and finely balanced, and has absorbed the new oak in a manner worthy of a Grand Cru White Burgundy, leaving the fragrant bouquet and finely structured palate of startling length to occupy centre stage. 64% cultured yeast, 36% wild yeast, fermented in and matured for 11 months in new French oak." (1/2017) 97 points Bob Campbell: "Lightish green/yellow hue, restrained for its age, and the bouquet is ultra-fresh and youthful, with almost contradictory intensity thanks to concentrated fruit. Tremendous depth of flavour, which rolls on and on across the tongue. ...Read More »

2013 Giant Steps "Sexton Vineyard" Pinot Noir Yarra Valley Victoria (Elsewhere $40)

95 points James Halliday: "Very good colour, slightly deeper than Applejack; a vibrantly savoury pinot, with cherry-accented fruit woven through a spicy/foresty palate of excellent length and persistence. Will richly reward 5 years in the cellar." 92 points Vinous: "Vivid red. Displays sexy, spice-accented red fruit and floral pastille scents and suggestions of dried flowers, anise and woodsmoke. An undercurrent of zesty minerality gives focus and lift to the plump raspberry and bitter cherry flavors, which flesh out and sweeten with air. The spicy quality comes back on the subtly tannic finish, which ...Read More »

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 »

2014 Bleasdale "Frank Potts" Cabernet Sauvignon Langhorne Creek (Elsewhere $30+)

96 points James Halliday: "61% cabernet sauvignon, 18% malbec, 9% merlot, 8% petit verdot, 4% cabernet franc, gold medal National Wine Show '15. Almost nonchalantly floods the mouth with blackcurrant and plum, the texture mesmeric, focusing on the fruit, yet providing the edge of tannin that is an integral part of the quality of the wine." 91 points Vinous: "Full ruby. Smoky blackberry, cherry pit, pipe tobacco, candied rose and cedary oak on the strongly perfumed nose. Juicy and penetrating on the palate, offering intense dark fruit and spicecake flavors and a touch of candied licorice. Shows an appe ...Read More »

2016 Powell & Son Riesling Eden Valley South Australia

94 points Wine Front: "Quite a distinct Eden Valley riesling here. Couldn’t quite put my finger on it, but it presents outside the box, in a really good way. No fear of chalky phenolics and a bit of extra power in flavour and acidity here. Impressive wine from Dave and Callum Powell. From a single vineyard in Flaxman’s Valley parish of Eden Valley. This has grunt and power but high refreshment factor, and charisma on its side. Scents of lavender, sweet talc, pot pourri, citrus blossoms and citrus. The palate is citrusy but rolls into powdery green apple ... Read More »

2014 Thistledown "Vagabond" Old Vine Grenache Blewitt Springs McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $30+)

93 points James Halliday: "From Blewitt Springs. It's light in colour but they've nailed the palate. Licorice and raspberry with spice woven through, but it's just that little something extra - difficult to define - that this wine most certainly has. It's pretty and light, but it has substance." (8/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale ruby/purple, the 2014 The Vagabond Grenache has an intense red currant, red cherry and black raspberry nose with nuances of anise and violets. Full-bodied, rich and expressive, the velvety palate is loaded with fruit and has a very long, spicy finish. (LPB)" (8/2015)

2015 Maison L'Envoyé Pinot Noir Tasmania (Previously $25)

91 points Vinous: "Light bright red. Lively aromas of red currant, raspberry, cinnamon and allspice carry a suave floral topnote. Light-bodied and energetic on the palate, offering tangy, spice-tinged red berry and rose pastille flavors and a refreshingly bitter hint of blood orange. Closes on a minerally note, displaying very strong persistence and lingering spiciness. (JR)" (10/2017) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "For a cool-climate Pinot Noir, this is ripe, rich and round. Its ample weight delivers broad, complex flavors of clove, cinnamon, black cherry, plum and cola, but its oaky overcoat may dissuad ...Read More »
