2013 Yalumba "Triangle Block" Shiraz-Viognier Eden Valley South Australia Top Pick!
2013 Yalumba "Triangle Block" Shiraz-Viognier Eden Valley South Australia

93 points Wine & Spirits: "*Best Buy* 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."

2014 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $40)

96 points James Halliday: "From old vineyards in Krondorf, Marananga and Eden Valley, open-fermented with submerged cap (header board), matured for 15 months in French oak (35% new). Succulent, rich and powerful, with predominantly black fruits and some spice. The hallmarks are its supple mouthfeel and effortless balance." (10/2016) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editor's Choice* Dark berry and plum fruit dominates, but hints of mint, vanilla and cedar add interest. Somewhere between silky and velvety, this full-bodied, richly textured Shiraz finishes long and appears to have the tannic structure to age well, th ...Read More »

2013 Xanadu Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia Top Pick!
2013 Xanadu Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia

96 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* In my mind, Xanadu has established itself as one of the greatest Margaret River winemakers. Small batch open-fermented, 35% given extended maceration, blended and matured in French oak (40% new barriques) for 14 months. Xanadu paints an unerring landscape of intense, elegant Margaret River Cabernet, with a stream of cassis fruit bordered by gravelly but fine tannins, oak insistently completing the picture. Great value. This year (2017) marks 40 years of Xanadu Wines and following decades of winemaking excellence, it has firmly c ...Read More »

(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.

2016 Shaw + Smith Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills

95 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* For long accepted as the benchmark for Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc, and you don't have to go past the bouquet to figure out why: just about every tropical fruit you can imagine is on display from custard apple at one extreme, kiwi fruit and green pineapple at the other (Michael Hill-Smith rejects gooseberry on the basis this means cape gooseberry, rarely encountered in Australia). It all adds up to a complete wine made to be enjoyed until the queue forms for the next release." (9/2016) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This winery has made a nice Sauvignon Blan ...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."

Great intensity and balance in a rather modest medium-full body with great graininess to the tannins and plenty of freshness. It finishes long. Note that no 2011 Cluster M45 was produced.

So much is the impact of the fruit, it buries the tannins, but allows the French oak to add yet another flavour.

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."

2013 Jacob's Creek "Two Lands" Cabernet Sauvignon South Australia

Full disclosure here... I have always considered Jacob's Creek as more of a big grocery store brand and haven't often carried the wines at K&L.
