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 »
95 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Light straw-green; a complex blend with considerable presence and attitude from the first whiff to the conclusion of the long, multi-flavoured and multi-textured palate; a small left field component was wild-fermented in stainless steel barrels. It is the overall intensity of the wine that really grabs attention, engineered by the way the flavours build across the palate."
97 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Estate-grown 40yo vines, and only free-run juice, gives the wine a flying start. Its intensity is exceptional, driving along the palate with high speed, the Bickford's lime juice flavours running unabated through the finish and well into the lingering aftertaste. An exceptional wine."
98 points James Suckling: "No.9 in Top 100 Australian Wines: There's a very assertive nose here that has a gently flinty edge, some nicely handled oak and hints of pithy lemon across more peachy stone fruits; tropical hints too, plus a chalky element. Very fresh and tightly wound. The palate has a very composed style to it with great depth and oak integration; long and powerful but quite sleek through the middle. A great example, this is tightly coiled for now and releases a slow-burning grilled nut flavor through the finish. The Aston Martin of Chardonnay, with sleek lines and pl ...Read More »
92 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Simple stainless steel fermentation at a relatively low temperature has thrown all the emphasis on the very attractive array of fruit aromas and flavours spanning snow pea, citrus and passionfruit, and doing so without assaulting the senses." (12/2013) K&L Notes: Mount Trio was named one of James Halliday's Top 10 "Dark Horses" of up-and-coming wineries for 2014. This small family estate owned and managed by veteran winemaker Gavin Berry and his wife. Together they make wines from their own lovingly hand-tended 20 acres in the Porongurup su... Read More »
94 points James Halliday: "Light straw-green; it is a tribute to the quality of the Art Series Chardonnay that this should be Leeuwin's entry point wine; there is a perfect balance between the grapefruit spectrum and the white peach spectrum, oak a near-invisible net holding the parts together, the length exceptional"92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is remarkably lush and full-bodied, yet remains lively and mouthwatering. Toasted nuts frame ample flavors of grilled pineapple and melon. Drink now 2017. The success of this wine should be a good indicator that, when released, the 2012 Art Series will be somethin ...Read More »
94 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Deep crimson; it has a rich and vibrant bouquet of black fruits, spice and pepper; the 12 months it spent in oak also makes its presence felt, joining with the tannins on the medium-bodied palate to provide excellent texture and structure." (3/2014) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "This wine has great richness of flavour, aromas of spicy cherry and plum and a soft fruit-driven palate delivering dark berries, liquorice and subtle tannins. The wine is approachable but will continue to develop and improve with cellaring. We source a single viney... Read More »
From Sittella's estate vineyard in the premium subregion of Wilyabrup in Margaret River. Carefully hand crafted in small lots. The wine shows ripe blackcurrant, dark forest fruits, dark chocolate characters with a subtle mint and tobacco notes typical of the Margaret River region. The wine is matured in French oak to enhance depth and structure. This is serious Margaret River Cabernet at a very small price thanks to our direct import! Available exclusively at K&L!
96 points James Halliday: "Confident with the quality of her biodynamically-grown estate grapes, Vanya Cullen is taking a gently gently approach with all aspects of the wine. Thus it is medium-bodied at best, but is perfectly balanced and its array of blackcurrant, redcurrant, earth and spice fruit flavours are clearly varietal. Above all else, it is certain the wine will develop beautifully over the next 20-30 years." (2/2012)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec and 3% Cabernet Franc, the 2010 Diana Madeline was aged for an average of 19 month ...Read More »
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chardonnay has a nose of honeydew, ripe nectarines and poached pears with a toasty undercurrent. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with lively melon and peachy flavors with a suggestion of creaminess to the texture and a good long finish. Drink it now to 2018. 90+ (LPB)" (8/2014)
96 points James Halliday: "...excellent colour, a vividly fragrant bouquet and intense medium-bodied palate bringing together the strength and power of Mount Barker and the somewhat fleshier black and redcurrant fruit flavours of Margaret River, the tannin and oak contributions precisely calibrated." (7/2012)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet in color, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of black currant preserves, blackberry compote and stewed plums followed by hints of black pepper, cloves and spearmint. Medium-bodied with plenty of mouth-filling blackberry and mint flavors, it has a good bac ...Read More »
92 points James Halliday: "Pale straw-green; rich fruit salad and cream style; no shortage of flavour, ready now. Trophy Best '13 Verdelho, Swan Valley Wine Show '13." K&L Notes: Really exciting wine...the back story on this is that while in college I once found a few closeout cases of Swan Valley Verdelho in a random rundown corner shop liquor store...long story short, the stuff was delicious and it became our house wine for as long as the supply lasted! While traveling in Swan Valley some years later I was excited to taste this lovely bottle from Sittella and be transported back to my first ... Read More »
94+ points Robert Parker: " The blockbuster 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Art Series (86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petite Verdot and 3% Malbec) exhibits a Chateau Margaux-like precision. There is terrific purity, finesse, and length asa well as medium to full body and intensely layered flavores nicely buttressed by acidity and tannin. As the wine sits in the glass, aromas of cedar, licorice, blackberries, and currents emerge. This sensational Australian red requires 2-3 years of cellaring; it should age for two decades. " (08/03)
