2013 John Duval "Plexus" SGM Barossa Valley South Australia

94 points James Halliday: "In beautiful condition and shape. It tastes beautiful. Raspberry, blueberry and blackberry, no alarms or surprises, complemented by woody spice and fine, smoky oak. Everything is where it should, and where you'd hope, it to be." (2/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet in color, the 2013 Plexus (a Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvèdre blend) gives slowly evolving raspberry tart, kirsch, potpourri and garrigue notes with underlying spice box and incense hints. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is velveteen textured with layers of expressive red fruits preserves and exotic spic ...Read More »

2014 Oakridge Estate "Willowlake Vineyard" Chardonnay Yarra Valley

97 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed directly to French puncheons for wild ferment; 11 months maturation on lees. From the heart of the Upper Yarra (and its oldest vineyard), this has unequalled finesse and brightness to its fruit profile, ranging through grapefruit and white peach on the bouquet and palate alike." (9/2015) K&L Notes: Oakridge's wines re-define what many people think of Australian wines...they're the polar opposite of the over-ripe, over-extracted, "Fruit Bombs" as any wine can be. These wines are about balance, elegance and refinement. Winemaker David B... 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. Oakridge's wines re-define what many people think of Australian wines...they're the polar opposite of the over-ripe, over-extracted, "Fruit Bombs" p... Read More »

2014 Torbreck "Woodcutter's" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

93 points James Halliday: "It struts its stuff in most impressive fashion; black berried fruits, anise, wood spice, all served sweet and voluptuous, with fresh red berries as the icing." (8/2016) 92 points James Suckling: "A tarry and quite savory rendition of this bargain Barossa shiraz, it has a strong focus on ripe, soft blackberry flavored fruits, hints of plum cake and chocolate, this is one very satisfying wine and represents stunning value. Long, stylish finish." (10/2016) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Juicy, with maple syrup-scented wild blackberry and currant flavors that are effusive and generous.

2013 Plantagenet Chardonnay Mount Barker Western Australia (Elsewhere $20)

95 points James Halliday: "Estate-grown, wild yeast-fermented in French barriques with extended lees contact. Full of character and vitality; grapefruit and white peach figure skate with each other, the line perfect, the length admirable thanks in no small measure to minerally acidity." (6/2014) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chardonnay opens to a peachy, tropical fruit nose with underlying notes of cedar, toast, butterscotch and roasted cashews. Medium-bodied, it has a pleasant creamy texture and good amount of stone fruit and tropical flavors before finishing with persistent, honey-toast notes. (LPB) ...Read More »

Medium to full-bodied, it delivers a lot of expressive flavor in the mouth backed by ripe, grainy tannins and lively acid, finishing long and earthy."

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 Wine Spectator: "Intriguing, with a blend of smoke, cigar box, espresso and nutmeg notes swirling around a dense core of cassis, plum and blackberry flavors. The elements mingle and linger on the detailed finish. (MW)" (7/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep garnet ...Read More »

(12/2010) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This pale salmon rosé is a reliable sparkling wine at a very good price. The latest NV release is toasty on the nose, then offers just faint hints of peach or berry flavors. It's lithe yet creamy on the palate, with a long finish. (JC)" (2/2012) 90 points Wine Spectator: "A very pale rosé, with just a hint of berry poking through the smoky, toasty aromatics. Deft and elegant in texture. Drink now.

2012 Yalumba "The Signature" Cabernet-Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

98 points Sam Kim: "A formidable wine of outstanding richness, yet it’s sophisticated at the same time. Complex aromas of black/blueberry, dark plum, floral, game and vanilla lead to a velvety palate that delivers awesome intensity and opulence. A gratifying wine from an exceptional vintage. Surely this is the best wine made under this label of fifty-year history. At its best: 2022 to 2042. Signatory: Robert Hill-Smith."

2015 Hentley Farm Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "Inky and rich. Dark berry and coal flavours power through the palate. Tannin pulls on the reins but the fruit charges on. A mouthful of gorgeousness." (3/2016) K&L Notes: Exceptional Cabernet for a song! This keeps its varietal correctness with blackcurrant fruit, leather and a touch of pipe tobacco. Combine this with Barossa Valley's signature scorched earth and meaty aspects and you have one serious wine. Full bodied, succulent and gratifying - a big, rich Cab that is easy drinking and really over delivers at this economical price point. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Aussi... Read More »

2014 Vasse Felix "Filius" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Filius Cabernet Sauvignon is scented of crushed blackberries and black currants with a bay leaf, dried thyme and pencil shavings background plus a hint of cloves. Medium to full-bodied, it packs a lot of fruit into the palate, well supported by grainy tannins and just enough acid, finishing with good length. (LPB)" (4/2016) K&L Notes: The blend is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot. Its name means "son of" in Latin, that that reflects its relationship to the Vasse Felix Cabernet, the estate's most historic red. Ac... Read More »

2014 Oakridge Estate "Over the Shoulder" Chardonnay Yarra Valley (Elsewhere $20)

92 points James Halliday: "From the Beenak, Coldstream, Gladysdale and Woori Yallock districts, all hand-picked. Has masses of fruit that could only come from the Yarra Valley, its length unmistakable, but not at the expense of mid-palate presence." (9/2015) K&L Notes: Last vintage we sold thousands of bottles of this wine from K&L direct import Oakridge Estate. Made by 20+ year veteran, Yarra Valley winemaker David Bicknell. David is considered by many as one of the best Chardonnay producers in all of Australia. The "Over The Shoulder" label is basically estate fruit that didn't quite make th... Read More »

2012 Leeuwin "Art Series" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia

97 points James Suckling: "This is the Mouton-Rothschild of Australia - with a screw cap! Incredibly complex aromas of blackcurrants, spices, cigar box, and berries. Full body, a fantastic palate and polished tannins. Goes for minutes. Better in 2017." (3/2016) 96 points James Halliday: "20% hand-picked, 80% machine-harvested, destemmed, cultured yeast, matured for 21 months in French oak (40% new). The headline, the main text and the footnotes all say one thing and one thing only: purity. And I suppose I should add elegance. They simply don't come better in this mode." (10/2016)

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." (8/2016) 91 points Decanter: "Spiced, lush blackcurrant aromas are deftly layered with intoxicating tobacco leaf and elegant herbal notes. Generous and full on the palate, with beautifully sweet vanilla, heady mocha and dark, brooding fruit."

2015 Helen's Hill Winery "Ingram's 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 Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet-Shiraz South Australia (Elsewhere $70)

96 points Bob Campbell: "I have an emotional attachment to Bin 389 having tasted and enjoyed every vintage for more than 30 years and been witness to a sophisticated revolution toward greater finesse. Deep-tinted wine but not heavy or overdone, with quite elegant flavours that include a cedar, cassis Cabernet character and sweetly luscious Shiraz. A lovely wine that can be appreciated now but really needs to be cellared for quite a few years to fully appreciate its star quality." 95 points James Halliday: "A 51/49% blend from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Padthaway, Wrattonbully and Coonawarra that spen ...Read More »

If 250 dozen had been made, not 245, it would have won the Jimmy Watson Trophy." (9/2015) 92 points Vinous: "Vivid red.

2014 Giant Steps "Sexton Vineyard" Chardonnay Yarra Valley Victoria (Elsewhere $40+)

Having taken on board the complex white flowers bouquet, it flows across the palate like a shower of confetti, dispensing stone fruit, grapefruit and splashes of balanced acidity." (9/2015) 92 points Vinous: "Light yellow-gold. Complex scents of pear skin, peach pit, tangerine, chamomile and iodine, with a smoky mineral flourish building in the glass.

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.

A deeper, richer, fuller-bodied offering that spent time in equal parts French and American oak, it possesses an opaque purple color, great intensity, and a fabulously sweet nose of blackberries, cassis, asphalt, earth, and oak.

2014 MWC (McPherson Wine Co.) Shiraz/Mourvèdre Victoria

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Jo Nash makes this wine at the McPherson Wine Company in the Strathbogie Ranges, blending fruit from sources throughout Central Victoria. Five percent mourvedre comes through in a little saddle leather and spice; two percent viognier adds lifted, floral aromas.

2014 Hentley Farm "The Beauty" Single Block Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "Size, shape, power and length; there's a lot crammed into this package, and yet at no point does it suggest being overdone.

(3/2016) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Impressive, with bold wild blueberry, kirsch and blackberry flavors that are powerful and persistent, pure and focused. Earth, sage and white pepper accents show on the long, velvety finish.

2012 Torbreck "The Steading" Grenache-Shiraz-Mataro Barossa Valley South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "Torbreck occupies a place all of its own; this wine's blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre is subservient almost to the point of irrelevance in the context of the unbridled richness of its wines, ultra-ripe fruit of high quality from the best vineyards is the raison d'etre of the wines." (5/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet in color with a purple rim, the 2012 The Steading (a blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro) has a beautifully open nose of kirsch, mulberries and black raspberries with white pepper, dusty earth and Chinese five spice suggestions.
