2015 Riposte "The Dagger" Pinot Noir Adelaide Hills South Australia (Elsewhere $20) Top Pick!
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."

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. The medium to full-bodied palate is filled with juic ...Read More »

2014 S.C. Pannell Syrah Adelaide Hills South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, open-fermented with 15% whole bunches, matured for 12 months in large-format French oak. 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 Shoofly Pinot Noir Yarra-King Valley Victoria

90 points James Halliday: "Light, clear colour; there aren't many pinots from the Yarra and King Valleys buzzing around with this degree of varietal fruit, its varietal purity suggesting little or no oak. It's a drink tonight bargain of some magnitude." (10/2015) 90 points Vinous: "Bright red. Lively and focused on the perfumed nose, displaying fresh red berry, potpourri and five-spice powder scents along with a hint of smokiness. Lithe and subtly sweet, offering vibrant raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter and spicier with aeration. In an elegant, fat-free style, with silky tannins ...Read More »

2012 Howard Park "Scotsdale Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon Great Southern Western Australia

97 points James Halliday: "From the near-40yo estate vineyard at Mount Barker; separate lots were either pressed at dryness or given post-ferment maceration, and kept separate during 20 months maturation in French oak (40% new). Picture perfect, not a hair out of place as the blackcurrant fruit, a touch of black olive and cedary oak flows seamlessly along the supremely elegant palate." (7/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Scotsdale Cabernet Sauvignon is a very deep purple-black 100% Cabernet Sauvignon made with fruit from 33-year-old vines.

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 »

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 »

2015 S.C. Pannell "Arido" Rosé Adelaide Hills

93 points James Halliday: "A blend of Pinot Noir, Syrah and Pinot Meunier crushed and left on skins for 24 hours. Pale, but vivid, pink; it has a savoury, highly textured, dry palate with a curling wave of faintly citrussy acidity lifting the lingering finish. Food an optional extra." (10/2015) K&L Notes: Having S.C. Pannell as a K&L exclusive import is like having the national monopoly on Opus One. Steve Pannell is one of the most highly regarded and awarded winemakers in Australian history. Pannell has the rare distinction of winning not one but two Jimmy Watson Trophies (the most prestigio...

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 »

Iron fist in a velvet glove, more common with red wines than chardonnay, but this has awesome power, concentration and length to its pink grapefruit, white stone fruit and pistachio, nougat accents from the mlf." 92 points James Suckling: "A southerly source in cooler territory has this chardonnay looking super fresh, floral and crisp. ...Read More »

Knows exactly what style it wants to be and sets about nailing it." (2/2015) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "Bright, vibrant purple reds. Fragrant, ripe Cabernet - cassis, blackcurrant and violets underpinned by redcurrant, chocolate and pencil lead.

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."

While the Woodley Treasure Chest wines were basically shiraz, none wholly cabernet sauvignon, this wine has a structure those wines had in their early maturity. What is most interesting here is the early development on the palate of savoury flavours and firm tannins, yet allowing the fruit to maintain its line through to the all-important finish, where balance is not in question." 90 points Wine Spectator: "Grippy tannins frame a bright beam of raspberry an ...Read More »

It is absolutely ready to drink immediately to appreciate its perfume and freshness." (7/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale garnet colored with a hint of purple, the 2014 Grenache Old Bush Vine offers enticing red cherry and raspberry preserves notes accented with suggestions of cinnamon stick, orange peel, red roses and white pepper.

2013 Sons of Eden "Remus" Old Vine Shiraz Eden Valley South Australia

97 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked from low-yielding 50+yo vines, open-fermented, some whole bunches, cold soak, post-ferment maceration, matured in predominantly new French hogsheads for 22 months. The low yield and vinification haven't led to dead fruit and/or over-extraction, and this has exceptional intensity and power, the whole bunch inclusion providing some lift, the French oak a flavour counterbalance for a wine of the highest quality." (8/2016) 95 points Bob Campbell: "Very deep red/purple colour, the bouquet rich and chocolate-ripe, bright and concentrated, deep and plush with fleshy extract a ...Read More »

2014 Robert Oatley "Signature" Chardonnay Margaret River

94 points James Halliday: "Bright and sunny with pear, apple and white peach flavor before then raising more serious points. Said points come in the form of flint, matchstick and the grunt of grapefruit, all laced with smoky oak. Drinkability meets sophistication meets value."

R.L. Buller "Premium Fine" Muscat Rutherglen Victoria (375ml)

92 points James Halliday: "Has elected to remain outside the four-tier Rutherglen Classification structure; has a vast haul of awards, mainly from overseas wine competitions. There is a lightness of touch to the wine that is most appealing, with spice and raisin aromas and flavours to the fore, and without heating the finish." (7/2012) 92 points James Suckling: "This is a wine that makes me a little speechless with hard candy licorice and prune. Full body, very sweet and rich. Layered. A creme brulee finish. Intense." (6/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "(Note from 2008 review, re-reviewed with no new note in 2009) The N.V. Fine Muscat of ...Read More »

2013 De Iuliis Sémillon Hunter Valley New South Wales (Previously $20.00)

94 points James Halliday: "Is already settling into a sound drinking place. It's all strung on a taut line of acidity but the lemon, apple, hay and spice notes give something to enjoy now. That said, it shows all the signs that, over the medium term at least, it will mature deliciously." (7/2014) 91 points James Suckling: "Sliced apples and peaches on the nose follow through to a full body, bright acidity and a tropical fruit aftertaste. Drink or hold. Screw cap." (10/2013) K&L Notes: The Hunter Valley is renowned for producing some of the best Semillon in the world. This wine displays fresh, lifted citrus characters, a l... 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." K&L Notes: **Trophy for Best Cabernet Blend Quantas Wine Show**. **Gold Medal at Royal Melbourne Wine Show.** Here in the sou... 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 Hentley Farm "The Stray Mongrel" Grenache Blend Barossa Valley

94 points James Halliday: "James Halliday's Wine Companion - Winery Of The Year 2015! Hentley Farm has a single-minded focus on producing what is as close as you're ever going find in Australia to a Grand Cru Burgundy or a First Growth Bordeaux. * Special Value Selection* The 2014 Stray Mongrel is a bits and pieces 58/38/4% blend of grenache, shiraz and zinfandel, picked and fermented separately. The red berry fruits of the grenache and darker fruits of the shiraz have come together very well, particularly with its fresh finish. All a bit mysterious how this happened."

2013 Glaetzer-Dixon Family Wines "Avance" Pinot Noir Tasmania (Elsewhere $40)

93 points James Halliday: "Bold aromatics. Combines sweetness and savoury, herbal notes to great effect. Ripe, juicy raspberry and strawberry fruit flavours come face to face with dry woody spice, aniseed and sweet smoke. It's an unusual profile but its appeal is clear." (3/2014) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale ruby-purple colored, the 2013 Avance Pinot Noir offers notes of crushed red currants, fresh black cherries and aniseed with hints of tree bark and dried herbs. Light to medium-bodied, the palate is bold and expressive with a savory / meaty character coming through with exotic spices, supported by a goo ...Read More »

2012 Moorooduc Estate Chardonnay Mornington Peninsula

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chardonnay has a youthful nose of white peaches, grapefruit and tangerine peel with hints of toast and struck match. Medium-bodied with a lovely silkiness to texture, has oodles of citrus, stone fruit and savory flavor layers and a long finish." (6/2016) 92 points James Halliday: "Whole bunch-pressed, and taken straight to barrel without settling for a wild yeast fermentation and mlf. Seamless fruit and oak integration, the flavours of peach, nectarine, fig and apple, with some creamy/nutty nuances." (2/2014)

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 »

2012 Moorooduc Estate Pinot Noir Mornington Peninsula

94 points James Halliday: "Full, clear crimson-purple; an exceptionally velvety, rich pinot at the start of its life; over the next 5+ years all manner of enticing aromas and flavours are certain to develop; I seldom give points for what I think a wine will become (let it wait its turn) but this is an exception. So if you buy it, drink a bottle, but keep the others." (2/2014) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Pinot Noir has a pale ruby color and slowly evolving nose of cranberry jelly, kirsch and potpourri with hints of Provence herbs and lavender. Light to medium-bodied, it fills the palate with perfumed r ...Read More »

2014 BK Wines "Cult" Syrah Adelaide Hills South Australia (Elsewhere $40+)

93 points James Suckling: "This cooler vintage has delivered an attractive pepper-dusted nose that is loaded with spice and fragrance, the oak is a support act to vibrant black cherry and blueberry fruits. The palate is all sappy and succulent, really layered, smooth and juicy tannins have good drive and depth, delivering a long, even blood plum finish. Drink now and up to 2022." (6/2016) 93 points Vinous: "Bright violet color. Assertive blueberry and floral pastille scents are complicated by suggestions of black olive, allspice and cracked pepper. Silky, broad and appealingly sweet, showing excellent ...Read More »
