2012 Wakefield (Taylor's) "St. Andrews" Single Vineyard Shiraz Clare Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $50) Top Pick!
2012 Wakefield (Taylor's) "St. Andrews" Single Vineyard Shiraz Clare Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $50)

96 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Slightly turbid/cloudy rim to the colour, although the hue is bright; it's very clear this has been made from an exceptional parcel of estate fruit, for it has an elegance and length not commonly found in the Clare Valley; likewise, its range of spicy red fruits merging with gently savoury/earthy nuances is exceptional." 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This is wonderfully complex and aromatic, with scents ranging from baking spices and savory beef to mixed berries. That swirl of seeming contradictions continues on the palate, backed by luxuriou ...Read More »

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." (2/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2013 Shiraz The Lodge Hill is redolent of eucalyptus, Chinese five spice, blackberries, black cherries and pepper hints, then fills the medium to full-bodied palate with a good amount of chewy tannins and plenty ...Read More »

2015 S.C. Pannell Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills

95 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked and sorted, free-run juice cool-fermented in tank. There is a subliminal savoury edge to the bouquet and palate, possibly from more than one yeast at work, and also to crisp, crunchy acidity. You pick up the extra level of flavour from ripe (not overripe) fruit on the back-palate and finish. Has the X-factor many Sauvignon Blancs lack." (9/2015) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: " Aromas and flavors of guava, passionfruit, pink grapefruit, fresh herbs. Light to medium bodied with bright acidity and a crisp balanced texture.

2013 Kalleske "Merchant" Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa Valley (Previously $38)

95 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Burly Cabernet with essence-like fruit flavour. Big revs of berry-soaked tannin, blackcurrant and truffle, mint and clovey herbs. Fruit builds tremendous momentum before tannin applies the brakes. Monty for the cellar." Wine Spectator: "Grippy tannins surround a bright core of currant and pear flavors, picking up sage and savory spice as the finish lingers against the tannins. (Web-2015)" K&L Notes: Big, full throttle Cab from Biodynamic producer Kalleske in Barossa Valley. Packed with ripe dark fruit, scorched earth, oak spice and floral lift. I love the comb...

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.

2014 Hentley Farm "Skinbone" Grenache Rosé Barossa Valley (Dry)

Vivid crimson; vibrant acidity gives this complex wine the characteristics of a white wine with a formidable finish." K&L Notes: A beautiful dry, fresh, rose of Grenache.

2014 S.C. Pannell Syrah Adelaide Hills

95 points James Suckling: "A very handy follow-up to the previous vintage which won the coveted Jimmy Watson Trophy, in fact, this could be a nose in front in terms of quality. The 2014 vintage was cooler, than 2013, producing a more compact, composed and muscular wine. It sacrifices nothing in terms of immediate appeal and polish though, all blackberry and black cherry fruits with plenty of spice, a little peppery edge and a thread of dark graphite-like stony allure. The palate is saturated in flavor with a mesh-like weave of fine, well-defined tannin. It's got all the promise of ...Read More »

2014 S.C. Pannell "The Vale" Shiraz-Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia

96 points James Suckling: "A full array of foresty berry fruits here again, all layered in neat, fitted together with the precision and detail of an expert joiner; this has impressive polish. The fruit aromas run through red, blue and dark tones, chocolate and liquorice, a hint of coal smoke too. On the palate there's a very supple, fine and even sheen of tannin, soaked in redder fruit flavors. This has terrific depth, elegance and purity. A blend of old vine Shiraz and Grenache." 95 points James Halliday: "A shiraz grenache blend, the grapes from old vines. The colour is vivid and deep, its promise fully rea ...Read More »

It tastes of dark, sweet-centred blackberry, chocolate, mocha and ground spices but the way it combines freshness and depth is the thing; and then there's the way guy ropes of flavour-packed tannin stake a deep hold, keeping everything in place both now and long into the future."

The cassis, black olive and bay leaf aromas and flavours are clear and uncluttered, but do not deny the oak and tannins their place at the table. I have every confidence the wine will richly repay five to 10+ years in the cellar." 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of Clare Valley and Coonawarra fruit, the deep garnet-purple colored 2013 Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon opens with tons of minted blackcurrant and black cherry notes with some chocolate and clove hints.

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.

2009 Penfolds "St. Henri" Shiraz South Australia

94 points Wine Spectator: "Supple, offering nubby tannins around a gorgeous core of currant and pomegranate, the flavors floating easily into the long, expressive finish, hinting at green tea and guava as the finish rolls on serenely. Shows intensity without density, coming together seamlessly. Drink now through 2025." 93 points James Halliday: "There is a warmth of fruit in the '09 St Henri that offers plush mulberry, spice, blackberry confiture and tar on the bouquet; the palate is generous on entry, warm and inviting, with a lively backbone of acidity cleaning up the tail of fine-grained tannins and charry ...Read More »

2013 Mr. Riggs "The Magnet-Dogridge Vineyard" Old Vine Grenache McLaren Vale

94 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Beefy and substantial in a varietal context though it's mostly packed with redcurrant and assorted red berried fruit. The point is it has a rich ripeness to it. It also comes packed with dried spices and sandy tannin, and manages to simultaneously create a serious impression and be perfumed and frivolous." 93 points James Suckling: "Beautiful florals here. This has a neat purity and alluring fruit perfume, lightly candied, the palate delivers flavors of blood orange, raspberry and pink grapefruit, tannins are lacy and lithe; a great example of Mclaren Vale ...Read More »

2013 BK Wines "Skin 'n Bones" Pinot Noir Adelaide Hills South Australia (Previously $40)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light, hazy red. Intense, spice-accented red berry and potpourri scents show striking energy and pick up notes of sassafras and incense with air.
