96 points James Halliday: "Hand picked, whole-bunch pressed to 500L French puncheons, wild-yeast fermented, matured for 10 months on lees. The Upper Yarra, on red volcanic soils, produces taut wines of extreme length. Here citrus, white stone fruit and green apple are bolstered by natural acidity. Winemaker David Bicknell makes the difficult seem easy." (08/2023) 96 points James Suckling: "Aromas of baked lemon, flint, hazelnut and lime zest. Medium-bodied with bright and driving acidity. The palate is energetic and fruity with an array of smoked citru...

97 points James Halliday: "All P58 clone from the 1980 and 1982 plantings. Whole-bunch pressed to 500L puncheons (about 20% new). Another captivating Oakridge Chardonnay, this has scents of ripe stone fruits, a little yellow plum even and a hint of oyster shell. There's wonderful depth and intensity on the mid-palate and the wine finishes taut, saline and long. While you'll no doubt enjoy drinking this now, it’s worth giving this some time to fully come together and open up. Made with the same attention to detail as Oakridge's flagship 864 Chardonnay, th...

93 points Decanter: "An incredible Shiraz – sour, peppery and amazingly aromatic with a green peppercorn note atop ridiculously ripe fruit. Crunchy tannins form the perfect platform on which the glorious blackberry, liquorice, rhubarb and cherry notes cavort. 70% of this wine is estate fruit, so that goes some way to explaining why this has such an elite flavour. (MJ)" (09/2023) 93 points James Halliday: "Mostly (83%) Grampians fruit, though there are contributions from Heathcote, Swan Hill and Bendigo. This wine is often a happy hunting ground for val...

93 points James Halliday: "We all know the many accolades this wine has attracted in the past. Interestingly, the fruit is sourced from Margaret River but it's made at Yalumba in SA. The South Australian penchant for American oak (rare in WA) shows, lending the wine a plush bed of texture. The succulent fruit is sensational, thanks to the brilliant 2020 vintage, making for yet another satisfying and value-for-money release from Ringbolt.

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "From the granite soils and cool climates of the Grampians mountains, this baby brother to Langi's premium Shiraz provides excellent value. Highly peppery from first sniff, it also offers fresh red and black berry fruit underpinned by tar, eucalyptus and a touch of vanillin oak. There's juicy, satiny succulence to the midweight palate. Pure, firm, fresh and balanced, this is just what Aussie Syrah should be. *Editors' Choice* (CP)" (07/2023) 92 points Vinous: "Bright ruby. Spice-tinged dark berry liqueur, cola, mocha and flor...

2022 Ministry of Clouds Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
Top Pick!
93 points James Suckling: "Clove, star anise, mace, blueberry and smoked charcuterie kick off proceedings. The tannins roll across the mouth with a signature of peppery refinement, nicely astringent. The whole-bunch element, used to good effect. This is a classy, fuller expression of shiraz, with all efforts made to rein in any excess. The result is mid-weighted of feel and immensely savory. A long, jittery finish." (09/2023) K&L Notes: Erin Larkin for Wine Advocate on the producer's style: "This is exciting. There is a seamless integration of tannin a...

97 points Decanter: "The pretty bouquet is beguiling; firm yet understated and nuanced. A lean palate with a powerful presence, mixing grip with light raspberry and plum tones that have lovely persistence within a supple but deliberate tannin frame. Long, mineral and effortlessly poised. Matured for six months in large old oak barrels." (12/2023) 94 points James Suckling: "This is a delicious grenache, sourced from prodigious sites. Sandy Blewitt Springs and ferrous Clarendon, smattered with extremely old vines. This full-weighted expression delivers t...

95 points Decanter: "Rapturous waxy lemon, candied orange and greengage aromas are embraced by a sphere of toasted brioche and cashew nut with a creamed honey texture and gorgeous mineral finish." (06/2024) 95 points James Halliday: "A long-time champion of marsanne, Tahbilk celebrates both its youthful energy and its aged beauty across a range of wines. Here we see the latter in all of its near-ageless allure, maintaining the honeysuckle, citrus, appley brightness of its youth while starting to build on its earlier promise of beeswax smooth texture wi...

93 points James Halliday: "Crushed and destemmed fruit, fermented with cultured yeast and matured 18 months in French (5–10% new) and American oak. A warm, dry, compressed season that in many ways is just made for the shiraz grape. The '19 boasts a bright spring in its step, that hopefully continues for some time. A bold, sunny wine with a core of dense choc-berry fruit flavours and scents, briar, bush mint, earth, toast and graphite. Supple and warm-hearted with a lasting generosity, you can easily miss the tannic tension at play." (08/2021)
Price: $16.99

94 points James Halliday: "A wonderful, plushly fruited Barossa shiraz packed full of vibrant satsuma plum and juicy blueberry characters, underscored by hints of maraschino cherry, Asian spice, violets, turned earth, roasting meats and a nuance of softly spoken oak. There's depth of fruit and intensity here, but also a sense of sapid juiciness with ripe, fine, sandy chocolatey tannins adding ample support. The wine fans out with a plume of spiced plum fruits on the finish. Wonderful value. *Silver* (DB)" (03/2022) 92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of ...

95 points James Halliday: "1927 Vines is fine example of the amazing versatility of the marsanne grape. It is probably its purest expression, capturing its essential beauty early and then allowing bottle age to bring complexity. From 2016 we see lovely florals emerging on the bouquet, showing signature honeysuckle, grilled grapefruit and almond development. Belies its age with a youthful energy and drive across the palate, lively acidity matched by a soft texture. By no means at its peak." (05/2022)

95 points James Halliday: "Coriole and Mudgee-inhabited Montrose both had plantings of sangiovese in 1985, those of Coriole the most significant, Montrose made by Carlo Corino, trained in Italy, a wine citizen of the world. This is a three-dimensional wine, the bouquet and palate both attesting to its varietal roots, and taking the opportunity offered by the great vintage, the herbal nuances on the finish adding charisma to the equation."

93 points James Halliday: "An 84/16% blend; the tempranillo 15% whole bunches (including a portion carbonic macerated), 85% whole-berries in an open ferment; the old-vine (up to 100yo) grenache was destemmed and open fermented in large vats; after basket pressing, matured in a mix of stainless steel, old French puncheons and a 5000L old foudre for 10 months. A very complex, tight-knit blend of dark fruits ex the tempranillo which subjugate the old-vine grenache, the stern tannins making their presence felt right from the outset. All this said and done, t...

94 points James Halliday: "The blend changes depending on the vintage. In 2019, despite the wine's name, it's actually merlot-led. 52/45/1.5/1.5% merlot/cabernet sauvignon/malbec/cabernet franc. ‘Merlot was great in 2019,' says winemaker Matt Byrne. An 80/20% shiraz/cabernet sauvignon blend, from estate vineyards. Matured 18 months in seasoned French oak barrels. Medium, vibrant purple. A soft, fruit-driven and approachable style of dark berry/cherry/plum fruit. Medium persistence and soft tannins make it ready to drink now. An easy-drinking, quaffing st...

Four Pillars "Faultline" K&L Exclusive Australian Gin (750ml) (Previously $35) (Previously $35)
Top Pick!
When our first batch of Four Pillars Faultline Gin ran out, we were all devastated. Initially conceived as a one-off project, the FP Faultline turned out to be one of our most popular gins ever, both among staff and our customers. After months of trying to find a substitute, we conceded that the first go-around was just too good and needed to be remade to the exact same specs. The initial batch was put together by David Driscoll, K&L Buyer Emeritus, wanting to build on the clean citrus notes and the creamy texture that are the calling cards of Four Pilla...

95 points James Halliday: "Blended from wines aged for a decade or more in oak (up to 15 years). Fabulous concentration here, as per the house style, while also establishing real elegance and spirit freshness. It's a fine balance to achieve and it's quite effortless in nougat, orange peel, raisin freshness with dark chocolate and creamy caramels. Long, unwavering finish. *Gold* (JP) " (08/2022)

95 points James Halliday: "At first, this offers hedonistic pleasure as it’s supple and inviting with layers of flavour deep and rich. It’s savoury and quite plush with lots of texture via cashew-like creamy lees, but it’s also not overworked. It has restraint and detail. There’s a superfine line of acidity keeping all elements in there place, stitching them together harmoniously."

2021 Penfolds "Bin 28" Shiraz South Australia
Top Pick!
92 points James Halliday: "A McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Padthaway, Wrattonbully and Clare Valley sourced shiraz matured in American oak (7% new) for 12 months. Deep crimson in the glass, the wine initially comes across a little shy, showing itself in the traditional Penfolds 'house style' after some time in the glass. Plentiful black and plummy fruit depth with hints of spice, roasting meats, soy sauce, charcuterie, Old Jamaica chocolate, licorice and earth. Tenses somewhat on the medium-length finish."

92 points Bob Campbell: "A middling ruby red colour without the deeper purplish hues of some new-wave young grenaches. Its subdued personality matches its appearance. It's not an out-there style, but it does have real savoury appeal. The nose has dry foresty notes, along with cherry kernel fruit and a whisper of Turkish delight. In the mouth it's dry and structured, restraint is the thing here, but it has presence, depth and length with a grippy tannin backbone that should ensure longevity. Really good" (12/2022) 92 points Vinous: "The 2021 Grenache is...

Laser-like and inwardly concentrated, ultra-zesty and supremely mouth-watering, this is a delicate yet highly structured riesling of detail and strong minerality. Opens with an understated bouquet delivering lemony freshness and jasmine floral lift, the palate offering tart lime, flinty mineral licks and zesty grapefruit juice piquancy. The texture is impressive, too, chalky, puckering and very, very dry through its grand extension of flavour. Superstar." (08/2023) 96 points Wine Advocate: "Now this is ve...

95 points James Halliday: "Year in year out this cabernet delivers – even in difficult years such as 2021 (rain events and high humidity during harvest). If anything, this is quite tight and needs more time in the cellar, if you can’t wait, decant. It reveals an exuberant fruit profile, given its youth, from mulberries and cassis to blackberries all offset by complex savoury notes, think nori, iodine and tapenade, a flutter of spice, too and a little smoky. It’s fine boned in a way, as it’s just medium-bodied with filigree tannins, neat acidity and a rad...

Near-perfect balance right through the super-mineral finish that’s super precise and really uplifting. Amazing value for money! Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Less expressive on the nose than some wines in this selection, but opens up beautifully in the glass. A rich, barrel-fermented character, though it finishes bright and crisp.

Kelp, green olive, sage and currant are saturated, fulsome and expansive across the palate. Fine length due to a poised tannic kit, savvy oak handling and a stream of salty freshness. A bargain.

95 points James Halliday: "85.5% cabernet sauvignon, 9.6% merlot, 4.9% shiraz. Destemmed, open-fermented, cultured yeast, 10 days on skins matured for 18 months in oak. Cassis comes up to meet the nose before inhaling begins, and everything flows on smoothly and logically from that point on. Byrne is achieving things others can't, this a very good example from a vintage that wasn't a cake walk. " (08/2019)

96 points James Halliday: "Made from two parcels, the early-picked parcel made with 40% whole bunches. The second, riper parcel was fully destemmed. Matured in seasoned oak for 10 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deep ruby red. Vibrant and focused on the nose with an array of red and blue fruits, violets and mountain herbs. Medium bodied and plush, this delicious and energetic wine is framed by silky, very persistent tannins and juicy acidity. A thoughtful and well-put-together wine."

92 points James Halliday: "Super-fresh, verging on the stalky and grassy end of the spectrum, but it's good. Satisfying. The fruit is everything from pepperberries, blackberries, mulberries, some cassis, licorice, aniseed, fennel flower, flat-leaf parsley and bay leaf. In the mouth the wine is decidedly red fruited, straying into the raspberry and pomegranate space. Delicious drinking for the price, and immaculate packaging to boot. Compelling." (04/2022)

94 points James Halliday: "Wet growing conditions that prevailed through to January ’22 were well-managed across the patchwork quilt of vineyards spread across the Hunter. Flavours of lemongrass, citrus and lanolin all contributing, this has the balance and length to transform itself over the next five years."

Price: $19.99

92 points James Halliday: "A blend of 50/35/15% merlot/cabernet/shiraz fermented and matured in stainless steel. A medium salmon/amber colour. Always good and fairly priced, the 2021 delivers aromas of strawberries and cream together with a little Provençal garrigue. The palate is dry and refreshing and I like the way this tapers into a gently structured finish. A sophisticated crowd-pleaser.
