2013 Yalumba "Triangle Block" Shiraz-Viognier Eden Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $18) Top Pick!
2013 Yalumba "Triangle Block" Shiraz-Viognier Eden Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $18)

93 points Wine & Spirits: "A modern take on an old-fashioned style of Eden Valley Shiraz, this is bold in flavor but not at all massive - more about stamina and grace than density and weight. 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. Ripe dark berries, cherry pit and a hint of licorice on the smoke-tinged nose and in the mouth. Shows good depth and gentle sweet ...Read More »

2014 Jim Barry "Cover Drive" Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia (Elsewhere $20)

91 points Wine & Spirits: "A classic Coonawarra style of Cabernet, this presents ripe currant fruit in a clean, spicy arrow of flavor.

2015 The Opportunist Shiraz Langhorne Creek South Australia

91 points Wine & Spirits: "Peter Leske, the original winemaker at Nepenthe who bought that winery and renamed it Revenir, has partnered with Fergal Tynan and Giles Cooke, both MWs and both directors of Alliance Wine in the UK. Together, their projects include Thistledown and One Chain in South Australia, their goal to emphasize freshness by picking just prior to peak ripeness rather than after. They sourced fruit for this shiraz from Langhorne Creek, presenting a wine that’s light and just luscious enough to surround all of its spicy, cumin-edged acidity in sour-cherry and plum-pi ...Read More »

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.

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 »

2015 Powell & Son "Loechel" Shiraz Eden Valley South Australia (1.5L in OWC)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming from the western section of a single vineyard in Eden Valley, the 2015 Loechel Shiraz from Eden Valley has a deep garnet-purple color and a gorgeous floral nose of roses and violets, with a whole array of baking spice-laced red and black fruit preserves emerging, plus some hints of cedar and chocolate box. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is youthfully taut, firm and muscular, possessing a solid structure of grainy tannins and lively acidity, finishing with those glorious baking spice layers coming through. (LPB)" 95 points Wine Spectator: "Decadent, with date nut bread, dar ...Read More »

2013 Yalumba "The Signature" Cabernet-Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A classic blend of Cabernet and Shiraz, this is cedary and complex upon opening, easily mixing cassis, plum and blackberry with vanilla and baking spices. On the palate, it's dense and concentrated yet slightly reserved, suggesting rather than screaming its potential. A long, mocha-tinged finish wraps things up, combining dusty tannins with mouthwatering acids. Drink 2020–2030+." 93 points James Halliday: "The alcohol may be modest, but that's where this line of enquiry ends. It's powerful, it wears a Driza-Bone and RM Williams boots, and isn't prepared to debate this characterisati ...Read More »

2016 Schwarz "META" Grenache Barossa South Australia

90 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, 86% whole bunches, wild-fermented, neither fined or filtered. Very light colour, not much more than rose. Grenache is like pinot noir: the depth (or lack) of colour can fool those who jump to conclusions. The spicy, juicy red fruits are not confected, the finish fresh." (8/2017) K&L Notes: Grenache from Bethany and Marananga in the Barossa Valley. Wild fermented. 86% whole bunches. There’s a line of redcurrant and sweet raspberry, on both the nose and palate, but it quickly turns dry, smoky, almost sandy. This is an uncompromising style. Herb and spice n... Read More »

2012 Yalumba "The Tri-Centenary" Grenache Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Suckling: "This has a truly commanding style with aromas of raspberries, dark cherries and a hint of wild herbs. With plenty of depth and detail on the palate, it has impressive presence, concentration, style and substance. Old-vine tannins (1889-planted bush vines) deliver a grenache that will age a long time and drive a deep, darker-berry-flavored finish. Striking. Drink now to 2025." (2/2017) K&L Notes: A true individual showcasing the essence of Grenache. Hand picked from just 820 gnarly old Bush Vines planted in 1889, these wines have been in the ground for over 125 years....
