Australia

Kangaroo Vinyard Australian wine is easily among the fastest growing categories in our inventory. While many equate Aussie wines with “value,” there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world. It is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, but commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since.

2016 Oakridge Estate "Willowlake Vineyard" Chardonnay Yarra Valley Top Pick!
2016 Oakridge Estate "Willowlake Vineyard" Chardonnay Yarra Valley

97 points James Halliday: "From the Upper Yarra, Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed direct to French puncheons for wild fermentation followed by 10 months maturation. The Willow Lake Vineyard is the oldest in the Upper Yarra, and one of the oldest in the entire Valley. This wine has a vibrancy, an edge, giving it a mouthfeel and set of flavours firmly anchored on grapefruit, which the Barkala Ridge doesn't have. Great success for the vintage." (4/2018) K&L Notes: 95 points Wine Front: "Stunning Chardonnay off the Willowlake Vineyard at Gladysvale in the Yarra Valley. I shouldn’t lead with this s... Read More »

2016 Penley Estate "Phoenix" Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia

Strikes the right note between power and elegance, with grace notes of eucalyptus, black tea and tobacco lingering on the velvety finish. *Smart buy* (MW)" (6/2018) Wine Enthusiast: "Made in the same vein as the Tolmer, and unmistakably from Coonawarra, this wine is a little less generous than its counterpart. Ripe brambly fruit, and leafy, herbal and minty aromas lead into a full-bodied palate of grainy savory tanni ...Read More »

2014 Kilikanoon "Killerman's Run" Riesling Clare Valley South Australia

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Less effusive on the nose than the Mort's Block, this boasts notes of tangerine zest and lemon. This dry, medium-bodied Riesling hints at riper fruit flavors yet stays resolutely citrusy through the long, electric finish. *Editors’ Choice* (JC)" (2/2017) 90 points James Halliday: "Flowery apple and citrus blossom aromas; attractive fresh Riesling, crisp and wellbalanced, with lime and lemon fruit flavors. Good now, better in a few years." 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Killerman’s Run Riesling begins with aromas of white pepper, lemon juice, apples and, aniseed then moves to an open and a ...Read More »

2013 Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $40+)

95 points James Halliday: "Interesting, very interesting. The colour, the freshness of the aromas and flavours, the finely sculpted tannins and the overall harmony suggest 13.5% alcohol, not 14.5%. All this conjecture is, of course, irrelevant: it is the outcome that matters - here a distillation of elegance." (9/2015) 93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of flowers, ripe fruit, and hot stones. Plums too. Full body, very layered and velvety yet always fresh and vibrant. More obvious but in a sexy way. Contrasty and vibrant. Screw cap. Drink now or hold." (7/2017) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is firm, dusty and seemingly built for the cel ...Read More »

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)

2015 Helen's Hill "Hill Top" Syrah Yarra Valley Victoria Top Pick!
2015 Helen's Hill "Hill Top" Syrah Yarra Valley Victoria

96 points James Halliday: "Co-fermented with 2% viognier, matured for 18 months in French puncheons (35% new). Revels in the exceptional quality of the vintage and the unrelenting attention to detail in the estate vineyards. The bouquet draws you back again and again to its rainbow of aromas of spices, forest floor, leaf, briar and dark chocolate, most morphing into the very complex palate that adds licorice and oak to the equation." (5/2018) K&L Notes: Helen's Hill Estate is owned by a partnership of fifth generation family farmers and located above the valley floor on the Southern Ranges of ... Read More »

2013 Streicker "Bridgeland Block" Sauvignon Blanc - Semillon Margaret River (Elsewhere $25)

93 points James Halliday: "93 pts *Special Value Selection* Hand-in-hand combination of flavour and texture is the key. Fruit itself has a sweet-edge, almost tropical fruit but not quite, tempered by notes of snow pea and gravel. This sunny-savoury aspect is carried along on creamy texture. the oak in which is was matured adding mouthfeel far more than flavour. The finish is dry. The overall effect delicious." (8/2016) 91 points James Suckling: "A white with plenty of sliced lemon and lime aromas and flavors. An earthy undertone. Full body, bright acidity and a long and intense finish. Lots of character. ...Read More »

2015 Payten & Jones "Major Kong" Syrah Yarra Valley Victoria (Previously $25)

Jancis Robinson: "Meaty, peppery and fizzing with acidic crispness. Plush, attractive black fruit finishing with a sort of fennel bitterness. Edgy, but properly fresh and aromatically clean. Lovely herby note on the length. (RH) 17.5/20 points." (11/2016) K&L Notes: Behn Payten spent a number of years working as a winemaker at Punt Road, even working on some of the Dalwhinnie wines that we import to K&L, and his partner Troy Jones works in sales while managing time over at Four Pillars, one of the best gin distilleries in the world. Together they make up the formidable team of Payten ... Read More »

2015 Amelia Park Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot Margaret River (Previously $20)

92 points James Halliday: "A small amount was wild-fermented in stainless steel barrels. It is a delicate, though precisely proportioned, wine with minerally acidity the foundation for the blend and its length. I like the chances of significant improvement over the next 2-3 years, but there's no prohibition of earlier enjoyment." (10/2016)

2016 Schwarz "META" Grenache Barossa South Australia (Previously $20)

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 »
