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.

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 »

2013 Wirra Wirra "Church Block" Red Blend McLaren Vale South Australia (Previously $20.00)

94 points James Halliday: "Australian Wine Companion - "A 50% Cab, 37% Shiraz, 13% Merlot blend matured for 18 months in French (70%) and American (30%) oak (10% new), one of Wirra Wirra's celebrated foot soldiers. 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. (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.

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.

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.

Spicy, peppery notes are liberally sprinkled on the expressive black cherry fruit of the bouquet, the sheer volume of that fruit not imperilling the medium-bodied nature of the palate, simply setting the scene for the remarkable drive and intensity of the finish and cleansing aftertaste." (8/2016) 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.

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.

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.

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Two MWs - Giles Cooke and Fergal Tynan - founded this Adelaide Hills winery n 2010, joining forces with winemaker Peter Leske of Revenir. 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. There's old-vine complexity in the finish, which lasts, clean and savory." (2/2016) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choi ...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 »

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

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 Riposte "The Dagger" Pinot Noir Adelaide Hills South Australia (Elsewhere $20)

94 points James Halliday: "**Top 100 Reds Under $20** Full crimson-purple hue; a fine web of earth and spice is wound through the dark cherry and damson plum fruit of both the bouquet and palate alike, providing an extra measure of texture and structure. Still in its infancy, but promises much for the future - and an enticing price. (Halliday on Winemaker Tim Knappstein) - With 50+ years of winemaking and more than 500 wine show awards under his belt...the prices for almost all of the wines are astonishingly low."

Will richly reward 5 years in the cellar." 92 points Vinous: "Vivid red. Displays sexy, spice-accented red fruit and floral pastille scents and suggestions of dried flowers, anise and woodsmoke. An undercurrent of zesty minerality gives focus and lift to the plump raspberry and bitter cherry flavors, which flesh out and sweeten with air.

2014 Oakridge Estate "Willowlake Vineyard" Pinot Noir Yarra Valley

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.

A top notch successor to the acclaimed '12." 96 points James Suckling: "A distinct evolution has happened around this wine with a more fragrant, spicy, lithe and lively style taking shape here.

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.

2014 Amelia Park Cabernet-Merlot Margaret River Western Australia

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."

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.

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

(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."

It almost floats in the mouth, so effortless is its invocation of all things Chardonnay: white flowers, white stone fruits and immaculately balanced acidity. Oak?

95 points James Halliday: "Armed with flavour and dangerously drinkable. Red and black berries, ground Asian spice, earth, aniseed and a quick kiss of cedary French oak. Puts on an impeccable performance." (7/2014) 94 points James Suckling: "Duval's regional red, which melds Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre together seamlessly, is a stunning rendition in the 2012 vintage. The Barossan origin is strong in all aspects of the wine, which shows deep blackberries and other red fruits on the nose in addition to some gently earthy and tarry meat accents, hints of nutty oak and a sense of vibrant ripeness. The palate d ...Read More »

2014 Andrew Thomas "Braemore" Sémillon Hunter Valley

97 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked with 'fishing headlamps' between 2am and 9am, enabling whole bunch pressing of cool fruit. Herb, grass, lime and lemon aromas and flavours whirl through the bouquet and superbly balanced palate alike, with lemon zest acidity cleansing and lengthening the finish and aftertaste." (8/2014) 91 points Vinous: "(all whole bunches and all stainless steel): Pale straw. Vibrant, sharply focused nose displays intense lime zest, lemongrass and jasmine scents and an assertive mineral overtone. Dry and stony in the mouth, offering bitter citrus pith, quince and fresh fig flav ...Read More »

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." 92 points James Halliday: "Has a darker berry spectrum of aromas and flavours than its junior brother PEPIK; black cherry, blueberry ...Read More »

2013 Wirra Wirra "RSW" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "The continued refinement of the flagship wines from Wirra Wirra is evident in the 2014 RSW. Darkly coloured and darkly fruited, the palate is finely poised with grainy, slatey tannins saturated in blackberry-laden fruit, the finish long, savoury and extremely fine." (3/2016)

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) Wine Spectator: "Very crisp and refreshing. A note of fresh grated ginger adds some pop to the citrus and pear flavors, lingering nicely. (MW, Web-2016)"

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 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 »

2013 Dalrymple Pinot Noir Pipers River Tasmania

94 points James Halliday: "Full colour; a spicy/savoury bouquet points the way for the textured savoury palate, with more foresty/stemmy notes than Cottage Block, but not to the exclusion of fruit." (7/2015) 93 points James Suckling: "A very bright and fragrant nose with abundant strawberry and wild cherry fruits, lovely brambly foresty notes here too. The palate is supple and bright, acidity streaks through fleshy raspberry and strawberry fruit flavour and flesh, great balance, very approachable. Tannins fan out through the finish in style." (6/2014) 93 points Wine & Spirits: "Planted on basalt soils at the edge of the crater of an exti ...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. Offers gently sweet raspberry and rose pastille flavors and a strong note of spicecake, with tangy acidity adding lift. Clean, sharply focused Pinot with superb finishing energy and length. This expressive wine was fermented on its skins for 100 days and made with 30% whole clusters. (JR)" (7/2014) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "The name of the wine references skin contact, in this case, 100 days on the skins, although tasted blind, the wine d ...Read More »

2014 Moss Wood "Amy's" Cab Blend Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $38)

95 points James Halliday: "A blend of cabernet, merlot, petit verdot and malbec overflowing with a rainbow of cassis/blackcurrant redcurrant, plum and mulberry on the bouquet and palate alike. So much is the impact of the fruit, it buries the tannins, but allows the French oak to add yet another flavour. Why not tonight?" 93 points James Suckling: "Attractive blueberry fruits, cassis and red cherry too. A flinty graphite-like edge and subtle oak spice. Superb palate texture that's flawless, long and silky; blueberry fruit flavors run on velvety, fresh tannins, with blackberry to close. Drink now and for 6+ ye ...Read More »
