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 »

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. The palate has weight and depth, good soft tannins in abundance, and charmingly aromati ...Read More »

2012 Clairault "Estate" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River (Black Label)

95 points Decanter: "2012 was a showstopper of a vintage for Margaret River and it shows in this wine. The grapes were hand-harvested from the oldest vines on the Clairault Vineyard planted in 1976 and fermented on skins for 10 days before pressing by winemaker Bruce Drakes. The wine was matured in both new and used French oak for 10 months for textured finesse and subtle, rather than overt, cedary aromas. The Clairault property comprises of several vineyards with one of the highest grades of biodiversity in the Wilyabrup area. Dark and cedary, with cola and berry fruit. Rea ...Read More »

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.

Sophisticated winemaking, the only question the amount of French oak apparent now, but will regress with more time in bottle." (8/2017) K&L Notes: From a vineyard planted in 1968. Wild yeast fermented wit... Read More »

2015 Schwarz "META" Shiraz Barossa South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "95 pts *Special Value Selection* Hand-picked from vineyards in Stone Well, Moppa and the Eden Valley, 22% whole bunches, wild-yeast-fermented, 195 dozen made. An attractive medium to full-bodied shiraz with black cherry, plum and oak showing the way, the juicy mouthfeel engendered by the whole bunch inclusion and modest alcohol." (8/2017) K&L Notes: Wild yeast, 22% whole bunches, unfined and unfiltered. Shiraz grown in the Stonewell, Eden Valley and Moppa sub-regions. It’s definitely one for the whole bunch brigade. It might only make up 22% of the mix, but the influ... Read More »

2016 Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills

95 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* For long accepted as the benchmark for Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc, and you don't have to go past the bouquet to figure out why: just about every tropical fruit you can imagine is on display from custard apple at one extreme, kiwi fruit and green pineapple at the other (Michael Hill-Smith rejects gooseberry on the basis this means cape gooseberry, rarely encountered in Australia). It all adds up to a complete wine made to be enjoyed until the queue forms for the next release." (9/2016) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This winery has made a nice Sauvignon Blan ...Read More »

2015 Powell & Son Shiraz Barossa & Eden Valleys South Australia

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Barossa & Eden Valleys Shiraz delivers expressive red currant, black cherry and crushed blackberry notes over hints of baking spices, garrigue, black pepper and lavender. Medium to full-bodied and very finely textured with silken, fine-grained tannins and plenty of freshness, it has wonderful length and depth. (LPB)" (3/2017) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Black walnut, dried porcino and nutmeg flavors are rich and compelling, set against a backdrop of plum and blackberry. Dark chocolate notes linger in the background on the long, firming finish. Dri ...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 »

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 »

2013 Rymill Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra

94 points James Halliday: "Clean and Pure. A flood of blackberry and mint with subtle tobacco notes over the top. Classic flavour profile with structure, though it remains fluid, even seductive." 93 points Wine & Spirits: "John Rymill’s family founded Coonawarra - he’s the great-great-grandson of John Riddoch, who established the district in 1890. Rymill’s father began to experiment with vineyards in 1968 at his horse farm in Penola, at the southern end of Coonawarra, with their current vineyard planted between 1974 and 1982. Those vines produced an elegant, crisplined cabernet in 2013, concentrated in its da ...Read More »

2015 Rob Dolan "True Colours" Chardonnay Yarra Valley Victoria

92 points James Halliday: "This is a sophisticated, mineral-clad chardonnay etched with the attributes of a far more expensive offering. There is a hint of stone fruit, oatmeal and nougat from lees handling, and a brushstroke of vanilla across the finish, suggesting a modicum of oak in support. Mid-weighted, energetic and highly drinkable." 91 points Wine & Spirits: "After making wine in Yarra Valley for more than 20 years, Rob Dolan established his own label with the purchase of Hardys’ Yarra Burn winery in 2011. He blends this chardonnay from vineyards in Upper Yarra, Coldstream and Yarra Glen. It shows the ...Read More »

2016 Schwarz "META" Grenache Barossa South Australia (Previously $20)

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 »

2015 Thorn-Clarke "Eden Trail" Shiraz Eden Valley South Australia

92 points Wine Spectator: "Thick and lush, with clove-scented red and black fruit flavors, showing accents of cedar, sandalwood and gingerbread on a seamless body. The tannins provide some velvety traction in the background, but the finish seems to go on forever, with waves of spice and green tea. Drink now through 2027. (MW)" (12/2017) 91 points James Halliday: "Dripping with boysenberries, blackberries and spiced plums. Full-bodied yet bright as anything with some grip to the drying tannins, slippery oak, savoury yet sweet fruited at the same time."
