2013 Josef Chromy Pinot Noir Tasmania Top Pick!
2013 Josef Chromy Pinot Noir Tasmania

96 points James Suckling: "The quality on offer here is striking, marrying the best of attractive ripe red and dark fruit characters with earthy spice and more savoury complexity, some blue fruits too, really engaging. The palate is wrapped together with fine even tannin and holds a wealth of perfectly ripe sweet cherry and mulberry flavoured fruit flesh. Fine texture, long and precise, it frames the finish up beautifully, leaving a gently toasty, precise and juicy impression." K&L Notes: Josef Chromy's story is a remarkable one. In short, he fled the Soviet occupied Czech Republic at the age ... Read More »

2013 Penfolds "Bin 9" Cabernet Sauvignon South Australia (Elsewhere $20+)

90 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Incisive aromas of peppery red fruits and dried flowers, with subtle vanilla and mineral nuances adding complexity. Juicy redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors become deeper with air while maintaining very good clarity. The bitter cherry note repeats emphatically on the vibrant finish, which is framed by youthfully chewy tannins. Give this youngster some air--or, better yet, stash it in the cellar for another five years. (JR)" (3/2016) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "A dark and savory Cabernet, this wine completely fills its claret-like weight, neither ambitious nor weak in i ...Read More »

2013 Wakefield (Taylor's) "Jaraman" Cabernet Sauvignon Clare Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $20)

94 points James Halliday: "Good hue; a medium-bodied wine that meets all reasonable expectations. 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.

2012 Robert Oatley "Signature" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River (Previously $14)

92 points James Halliday: "Good hue and depth; the bouquet and palate sing from the same page, bringing black fruits, dried sage, black olive and oak together, and then laying a carpet of fine tannins underneath." (3/2014) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "This gentle cabernet is long on elegance and herbal spice. It offers a rich texture without tannic overload, its foresty fruit ranging from red cherry to boysenberry. A coastal cabernet for venison or other lean meats." (10/2014) 90 points Vinous: "Vivid ruby. Pungent scents of fresh cherry, blackcurrant and pipe tobacco, with a smoky nuance coming up with aeration. On the palate, gen ...Read More »

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 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 Oakridge Estate "Over the Shoulder" Pinot Noir Yarra Valley (Elsewhere $20)

91 points James Halliday: "From vineyards in Beenak, Gladysdale and Yarra Glen. A powerful testament to David Bicknell's approach, designed to place as little as possible in the way of varietal expression and (where relevant) that of place. This is pure Pinot, as light and as fresh as a spring day, cherry and strawberry fruit with a gossamer web of tannins." (9/2015) K&L Notes: A K&L Exclusive Direct Import.

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.

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.

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.

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."

Everything is where it should, and where you'd hope, it to be."

The palate has a silky and luscious feel, beautifully realised tannins, velvety, even and flawless, a core of sweet red plum flavor and a long, pure fruit finish. Masterful wine.

This is their first vintage of the Thorny Devil, from an old-vine, dry-grown vineyard in Barossa, which they ferment as mostly whole berries without added yeast, then age in old oak barrels. It's a wine with serious structure, the tarry tannins carrying fresh cherry and cranberry flavors without any sense of excess alcohol.

So perfect now. Better in 2016. But why wait?" 94 points James Halliday: "Makes a fist at effortlessness. Supple blackcurrant and choc flavours glide into bay leaf and clove. Mid-weight but juicy. Builds a good amount of momentum as it rolls through the mouth. Shape, mouthfeel and length. Elegance is its middle name. Should mature well." (12/2014) 93 points Vinous: "Inky ruby.

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.

(JH)" (3/2015) 92 points James Suckling: "The staple of the Wirra Wirra stable, this has a definitive cabernet stamp to it with liquorice and dark chocolate. Plum fruits, cassis and black cherry flavors linger on elegant tannins. Nicel ...Read More »

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."

2010 Domaine A "petit a" Cabernet Sauvignon Tasmania

94 points James Halliday: "The colour is exceptional for a 6yo wine, as is its freshness. 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 »

Jansz "Premium" Brut Rosé Tasmania

93 points James Halliday: "Pink, with a touch of salmon; strawberry notes ex pinot very obvious; a fun and flavour-filled sparkling with good length and balance." (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.

2013 Sons of Eden "Romulus" Old Vine Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "From three low-yielding vineyards, extended fermentation with different approaches, matured in mainly new American hogsheads for 20 months. The come-hither message of the bouquet leads into an even more seductive palate with folds of velvet and satin around dark cherry and plum fruit, soft tannins a constant undertow." (8/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz Romulus delivers a gorgeous nose of blackberry tart, crème de cassis and mocha with suggestions of spice cake, cloves, incense and hoisin. Full-bodied, rich and yet not overly heavy, the p ...Read More »

2014 Kooyong "Massale" Pinot Noir Mornington Peninsula Victoria

95 points James Halliday: "**Special Value Selection** A prototype of the modern drinking red. Complex, charming, mid-weight without being lacking, fragrant, lengthy. Sweet fruit meets smoky reduction meets wood meets savoury herbs. Shine a light into any of its nooks and you'll find something fascinating. Don't hesitate, drink it now." (1/2016) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "The 2014 Massale reveals wild raspberry and black cherry aromas along with earthy notes of cardamom and undergrowth.

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. It’s a pretty red color and has a tight line of flavor, savory with notes of dried red currants and black olives. The tannic grip and fine weight make this a steal at the price." (6/2016) Wine Spectator: "Distinctive, with white pepper and fresh-cracked black pepper aromas. Black tea details accent the robust blackb ...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 »

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

96 points James Halliday: "You can't make great wine by numbers, but the seamless balance of the wine stems from the perfect ripeness linked to its alcohol (or vice versa). 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. Supple and expansive on the palate, offering intense, mineral-tinged citrus and o ...Read More »

2014 Kalleske "Moppa" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Biodynamic)

94 points James Halliday: "The wine contains some co-fermented viognier (5%) and back-blended petit verdot (10%); wild open ferment, hand pump overs, 7-12 days on skins, matured in a cocktail of French, American and Hungarian oak (25% new) for 14 months. Dense purple-crimson, it launches an Exocet missile of the blackest of black fruits, dark chocolate and strong tannins." (10/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Shiraz Moppa (a blend of 85% Shiraz, 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Viognier) has a youthful nose of crushed black cherries, black plums and blueberries with hints of licori ...Read More »

2015 Mesh Riesling Eden Valley South Australia

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Mesh 2015 Riesling is gorgeous with an expressive lime cordial and orange blossom nose, with hints of petrol, honey and coriander seeds. This Riesling is light-bodied, dry and crisp, and there are plenty of citrus and spice flavors leading to the perfumed finish. (LPB)" (6/2016) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This joint venture between the Grosset and Hill Smith families continues to shine. It’s tight, lean and austere at this young age, showing the delicate yet powerful notes of tart lime and crushed stone that bode well for aging up to 15 years or so." Wine Spectator: "Very crisp and refreshing. A n ...Read More »
