2013 Xanadu Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia

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.

2014 Amelia Park Cabernet-Merlot Margaret River Western Australia

94 points James Halliday: "Matured in French oak for 12 months. The two varieties are locked in combat on the way (part due to oak) and you have to wait for the blackcurrant and redcurrant promised by the bouquet to resonate, mulberry adding its weight."

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. Two Lands is a collaborative project between Jacob's Creek and one of my longtime favorite Californian wine makers, Ehren Jordan of Turley/Failla fame! This is rocking Cab that coul... Read More »

2014 Oakridge Estate "Willowlake Vineyard" Pinot Noir Yarra Valley

96 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, destemmed, whole berry, 14-day ferment, matured for 11 months in French oak. Willowlake is the oldest Upper Yarra vineyard, and always has that little bit extra in fruit complexity - both red and black fruits, even if red is still the leader - fine tannins and oak totally in balance." (9/2015) K&L Notes: Another fantastic single vineyard Pinot from Oakridge, this time it's the Willowlake Vineyard Pinot Noir.

2010 Domaine A "petit a" Cabernet Sauvignon Tasmania

My comments (and points remain the same...The high percentage of merlot is intended to make this a quick-developing wine, although matured in used French barriques for 2 years, plus further time in the cellar until it is judged ready. Judged by normal standards, extremely full-bodied, but by those of Domain A, less so. And it must be said the palate borders on outright juicy, with cassis, redcurrant, mulberry and spice." 94 points James Suckling: "A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (35%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and ...Read More »

2015 Vasse Felix "Filius" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia

92 points Wine Spectator: "Focused and intense, this offers a burst of fresh mango and lime juice on a sleek and polished frame. Shows plenty of energy on the long finish. Drink now through 2022. (MW)" (10/2016) Jancis Robinson: "*Good Value* Gently creamy aroma, and then a attractive note of oatmeal and orange on the palate, underpinned by citrus freshness. More savoury on the palate, with a mealy lees quality adding texture and length. Beautifully balanced and long. (JH)" (10/2016) Wine & Spirits: "There’s fresh, oceanic acidity to this wine, its flavors of green lime, almonds and corn silk dominated by notes of bana ...Read More »

2015 Giant Steps Chardonnay Yarra Valley Victoria

95 points James Halliday: "An intense blend of grapefruit pith/zest/juice is coupled with shiny acidity on a palate that is a great example of the Yarra Valley’s ace in the hole with chardonnay: extreme length." 92 points Wine & Spirits: "This is mouthwatering, a sensation that doesn’t often come to mind with Australian chardonnay. That’s due, in large part, to a vintage that ripened chardonnay to crisp flavors of apples and pears with plenty of natural acidity. Phil Sexton and Steve Flamsteed nurtured that freshness through fermentation in 500-liter French oak puncheons (20 percent new), with no added yeast, ...Read More »

2014 S.C. Pannell "Old McDonald Vineyard" Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked from 72yo bush vines, open-fermented, 14 months maturation in used French hogsheads. Bright, clear colour; quality grenache picked at precisely the right time has resulted in a wine with perfectly pitched red fruits, supple yet savoury tannins, and passing hints of herbs and chocolate; the tannin support is perfect, adding to the savoury nuances that are ever-present in the wine; poise and balance. Rhone Valley? Yes." (5/2015) 96 points James Suckling: "New name, same vineyard source for Pannell's Grenache. This has a beautiful sense of purity and pared back raspberry fr ...Read More »

2013 Langmeil "The Blacksmith" Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa Valley South Australia

91 points Vinous: "(aged for two years in 10% new French oak barrels): Vivid purple. Pungent cherry and blackcurrant aromas are complicated by mocha, tobacco and licorice nuances. On the plate, juicy dark berry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted and sharpened by tangy acidity. The lively, penetrating finish features sappy dark berry and floral pastille notes and smooth, slow-building tannins. (JR)" (3/2016) Wine Spectator: "Plenty of firm tannins at the core, with a distinct herbal edge including dill, sage and bay leaf elements, and plum flavors peeking through. (MW, Web-2016)"
