2013 Trellis (Amelia Park) Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot Margaret River

Wow! An insane value in Cabernet from famed (Jimmy Watson Trophy Winner) winemaker Jeremy Gordon. Trellis is a new line of wines from Margaret River-based Amelia Park. The fruit, as with all of Amelia Park's wines, is sourced from some of the best vineyards in the region. Most producers in this ultra-premium wine region charge top dollar for their wines, how Amelia Park can deliver this level of quality, for these tiny prices, continues to amaze me. Jeremy makes beautiful, pure, fruit driven wines with excellent richness, balance and polish. This is just... 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.

2014 Oakridge Estate "Over the Shoulder" Pinot Noir Yarra Valley (Elsewhere $20) Top Pick!
2014 Oakridge Estate "Over the Shoulder" Pinot Noir Yarra Valley (Elsewhere $20)

A K&L Exclusive Direct Import. Made by 20+ year veteran, Yarra Valley winemaker David Bicknell. David is considered by many as one of the best winemakers in all of Australia. The "Over The Shoulder" label is basically estate fruit that didn't quite make the cut for the much more expensive single vineyard bottlings but still represents excellent quality and an exceptional value. This is a more elegant, medium bodied style with very moderate alcohol, bright, crunchy berry fruit, spice and lovely earthy, forest floor nuances. Think of it like a great bottle... Read More »

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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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."

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 »

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.

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.

Still in its infancy, but promises much for the future - and an enticing price.

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."

(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."

Texture, structure and complexity are the name of the game, and you get plenty of it for your dollar. For whatever reason, whole bunch characters put a stranglehold o ...Read More »

2013 Leeuwin "Art Series" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia

Everything is precise and supple, with a juicy touch on the epic finish. Drink now through 2026.

2012 John Duval "Plexus" SGM Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $40)

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 Cullen "Ephraim Clarke" Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon Margaret River Western Australia (Biodynamic) (Elsewhere $35+)

92 points Vinous: "Light, hazy yellow. Smoky, assertively perfumed aromas of poached pear, melon and lemon curd are complemented by suggestions of fennel, jasmine and vanilla. Supple and broad on entry, then more taut in the middle, offering juicy orchard fruit and orange zest flavors and a hint of toasty lees. Shows a suave blend of power and finesse and finishes sappy, smoky and very long, with a sexy floral quality. This complex wine reminded me a lot of a top-notch white Bordeaux. (JR)" (3/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Youthfully mute with a subtle lemon curd and apple-laced nose, plus nuances ...Read More »

2014 Powell & Son GSM Barossa Valley South Australia

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Blended of 70% Grenache, 25% Shiraz and 5% Mataro. Medium garnet in color, the 2014 Grenache Shiraz Mataro has a pleasant earthy / meaty character over the core of dried mulberries, kirsch and spice box plus a waft of potpourri. Full-bodied in the mouth, it offers seductive spice cake and berry preserves flavors with velvety tannins and just enough lift from the freshness, finishing with great persistence. (LPB)" (6/2016) K&L Notes: 93 points Wine Front: "Bold wine of concentration, meatiness and spice. Reeks of roast meats, mocha, maraschino cherry, briar and clove-... Read More »

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 »

2015 Rogers and Rufus Grenache Rosé Barossa (Dry) (Elsewhere $20)

James Halliday: "Pale colour with a hint of spritz. Attractive mix of raspberried fruit and twiggier, spicier, more earthen influences. Finishes fresh." (7/2015) K&L Notes: From old vines. Winemaker's notes: "Bright salmon pink in colour. A highly aromatic wine that opens with strawberries and cream, cherry blossom, talcum powder and a hint of pear skin. This wine has flavours of raspberry iced tea, red apple and pomegranate. A supple and briny texture with a blood orange finish leaves you looking for the next sip. The Grenache that produced this Rosé is either sourced from bush vine... Read More »
