2015 Paxton "AAA" Shiraz-Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia (Biodynamic) (Elsewhere $22)

96 points James Halliday: "A 65/35% blend, matured in French barriques. A Shiraz-Grenache that only McLaren Vale can provide: complex, rich and layered, black and red fruits providing a mosaic of flavours on the medium+-bodied palate. The tannin and oak management can't be faulted — it's a lovely wine at a bargain basement price." (4/2017) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Aaa Shiraz Grenache has a lifted nose of black cherries, black raspberries and star anise with hints of dried Provence herbs and roses.

2014 Leeuwin Estate "Art Series" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $85)

98 points James Halliday: "Part hand, part machine-picked, part wild and part cultured yeast, matured for 11 months in new French oak. Incredibly youthful quartz-green colour; a great chardonnay, its intensity and length right up there with the best prior vintages; white peach and nectarine open the batting, pink grapefruit coming swiftly thereafter, creamy/nutty oak almost lost in the crowd. If this weren't enough, the aftertaste is a work of art, complete in itself." 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of Margaret River's (and Australia's) iconic Chardonnays, Leeuwin's 2014 Art Series Chardonnay continues that p ...Read More »

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 »

94 points James Halliday: "There's a nuclear arsenal of black and redcurrant, cassis, wild herb, black olive and charred, tarry tannins in each bottle of this wine, so handle with care. 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.

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."

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.

Full-bodied with concentrated flavors in the mouth, it has a solid backbone of firm, ripe tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and savory. (LPB)" (2/2017) Jancis Robinson: "Proportions are about 70/20/10. 60- to 115-year-old vines. Same winemaking as on all the Powell & Son reds - ie fermented in open concrete ...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 »

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) 93 points James Suckling: "A beautiful expression of shiraz from Barossa with a freshness and linear length to it. Medium to full body, fine and intense. Spice and meat character is all here. Just hint of peanuts. Drink now. Screw cap." (10/2016) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "For an entry-level wine, this is excellent. The aromas and flavors feature smoky, stemmy, herbal goodness layered over blueberries and black cherries, while the palate is full ...Read More »

2015 Vasse Felix Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $40) Top Pick!
2015 Vasse Felix Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $40)

96 points James Halliday: "From Vasse Felix's premier vineyards focused on Wilyabrup, fermented and matured in French oak (42% new) for 9 months. The bouquet is still developing, but the palate guarantees the medium to long-term future of a chardonnay with exceptional length and intensity, pear, white peach and grapefruit combining to make light work of the oak. Restrained like a lion on a leash." (9/2016) 94 points James Suckling: "A vivid and bright chardonnay with cooked apple, lemon and mineral character. Hints of vanilla and cream. Full body, clean and lively." (7/2017) 93 points Wine & Spirits: "Vasse Felix farms Chardonnay at thre ...Read More »

2014 Clairault "Estate" Chardonnay Margaret River (Black Label)

96 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Both this and its '14 sibling come from estate vineyards and are made in similar fashion, yet Clairault's own notes use totally different descriptors for each. It's not a question of volume, although I think that the significantly greater volume/intensity of this wine is the difference. Strange, but then that's the everlasting fascination of wine." (10/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Estate Chardonnay is a rich, opulent wine loaded with scents of toasted hazelnut or almond layered over white peaches and grilled pineapple. It even hints at popcorn ...Read More »

2015 Penley Estate "Atlas" Shiraz Coonawarra

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Atlas Shiraz is redolent of cracked black pepper and Chinese five spice over black cherry and black berry notes with a waft of chocolate mint. Medium-bodied, softly textured in the well-poised mouth, it delivers mouth-filling juicy black fruit and a spicy finish. (LPB)" (8/2017)

2016 Tyrrell's Semillon Hunter Valley New South Wales

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Semillon is a fresh, fruit-forward example of the genre. Green apple and lime juice notes dominate, while hints of crushed stone provide a pleasantly silky texture and extend through the long, mouthwatering finish. (JC)" (12/2017)

2016 Hentley Farm Riesling Eden Valley South Australia

93 points James Suckling: "A solid white with stone, green apple and pear character. Full body, vivid and intense. Mineral, stone and slate undertones. Beautiful fruit. Drink now. Screw cap." 90 points Vinous: "Very light green-hued yellow. Fresh citrus and orchard fruits on the incisive, mineral-accented nose. Refreshingly brisk and dry, offering tangy grapefruit, pear skin and honeysuckle flavors and a spicy hint of white pepper. Closes taut and precise, featuring an echo of bitter citrus pith and very good length.

2015 Powell & Son "Loechel" Shiraz Eden Valley South Australia

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)" (3/2017) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Decadent, with date nut b ...Read More »

2013 Hentley Farm "The Beast" Single Block Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "Awesomely powerful, with a tsunami of sombre black fruits, licorice and tannins to match, overwhelm you the moment the wine enters the mouth. It is, of course, full-bodied, and doesn't have the fluid grace of the other Hentley Farm '13 Shirazs. It is indeed a beast, but will repay those who put their faith in the high quality corks used by Henley Farm." (3/2015) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz The Beast has an earthy/gamey nose with dried mulberries and preserved plums at the core, morphing into spice box, sandalwood and peppery notes. Full-bod ...Read More »

2012 Streicker "Ironstone Block" Chardonnay Margaret River (Elsewhere $35)

96 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Shows its oak, no two ways about it, but the length of flavour here is exceptional. The fruit tastes of white peach, pineapple and nashi pear; the oak of cream and smoky cedar wood. It all combines to power on through the finish in blazing style." (8/2016) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "100% Gin Gin clone Chardonnay, hand harvested from our Ironstone Vineyard and bursting with the richness and opulence that Margaret River Chardonnay is known for. Ripe nectarines and cut yellow peach with hints of honeycomb, bees wax and brioche lead to bold ... Read More »
