2013 Oakridge Estate "Over the Shoulder" Chardonnay Yarra Valley Top Pick!
2013 Oakridge Estate "Over the Shoulder" Chardonnay Yarra Valley

94 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Pale, bright quartz-green; a great example of what the Yarra Valley can give to Chardonnay by getting the picking date right, allowing the winemaking to fill a QA role, simply protecting what the vineyard(s) has given - here a wine of great purity, energy, drive and length, citrus and stone fruit (in that order) driving the engine."

2014 Pewsey Vale Riesling Eden Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $17+)

95 points James Suckling: "This is so dense and powerful with layers of dried white peach, green apple and lime. Minerals, too. Full-bodied and dry but bright, fruity, open and floral. Bold and upfront. Goes on for minutes. This is always a top Riesling." (1/2015)91 points James Halliday: "As honest and workmanlike as ever, well-balanced and without any technical fault whatsoever; it will grow with time in bottle, but will never set the pulse racing, doubly envious given its excellent natural acidity and low pH." (12/2014)90 points Bob Campbell: "Dry, delicate Riesling with gentle lime/citrus and subtle floral flavours underpinned by ...Read More »

2012 Oakridge Estate Single Vineyard Series "d'Aloisio Vineyard" Chardonnay Yarra Valley (Elsewhere $35)

95 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed direct to French oak puncheons for fermentation and 10 months maturation. Here the slightly richer and layered nature of Lower Yarra Valley fruit is the point of difference, although this and the '12 Guerin Vineyard both have the hallmark Yarra Valley length of flavour; white peach and grapefruit make equal contributions to the overall flavour." (12/2013)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 J&J D’Aloisio Vineyard Chardonnay opens with aromas of apple tart, apricots and brioche with touches of cashews and mandarin peel.

2012 S.C. Pannell "Tinto" Old Vine Grenache-Touriga National McLaren Vale South Australia

93 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* A blend of Garnacha Tinto (Grenache by any other name) and Touriga, part coming from McLaren Vale (Garnacha) and part from the Barossa. It is a joyously schizophrenic blend, half saying drink without any introspection or hesitation, the other inviting deconstruction of the very different spice influences, and also the differing appeal of the raspberry and cherry fruit flavours." (3/2014) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "This is our first Tinto that is made solely from Grenache and Touriga Nacional, two of my favourite red grape varieties. Thi... Read More »

2012 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.

The nose has chalky notes with fresh hazelnut and a flinty, attractive reductive edge, plus stone fruits and citrus intermingled. The palate has commanding weight, neatly crafted shape and impressive length, with winding white peach and an array of citrus fruit flavors long into the finish.

A good commercial cabernet from the right region."92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors’ Choice* Full bodied and richly textured, this is an approachable wine that should nonetheless drink well through at least 2025.

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."

This wine over-delivers at every point along the way, starting with its opulent bouquet, with its mix of red and black fruits, then a velvety, rich cassis-driven palate before moving into cedary, lingering finish, there supported by persistent, fine-grained tannins."

(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.

2013 Dalwhinnie "The Hut" Pinot Noir Pyrenees

94 points James Halliday: "An opulent, full-bodied pinot noir, flexing its muscles from the bouquet through the palate and the finish in particular; it is the finish that saves the wine from the 'dry red' description, the ultimate insult to a pinot noir; here there is a vibrant and intense line of dark cherry and plum that is pure pinot. It will age very well indeed." (7/2014) K&L Notes: Wine writer Huon Hooke says, "Sit back and watch, as Dalwhinnie etches a name for itself, not only among the great wines of Australia, but the world."

Medium to full-bodied with mouth-filling black fruit preserves and baking spice flavors, it has a medium level of fine-grained tannins, refreshing acid and a finish with very good length.

2014 Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc/Sémillon Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $23)

There is an array of citrus and tropical fruit aromas and flavours, but it is the electricity of the intense palate that is the defining feature of the wine." K&L Notes: Cape Mentelle takes a minimal approach towards this classic Margaret River blend.

(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.

2013 Duane Coates Semillon-Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills South Australia

94 points James Halliday: "A 70/30% blend, the grapes picked at different harvest times, but held in stainless steel at low temperatures to settle and combine prior to fermentation on fine solids in new and 1-year-old French oak, held on lees for 9 months. The oak cost, combined with the ultra-low extraction rate through basket pressing (less than half the extraction through a pneumatic press, at around 320l per tonne) make this a very expensive wine to produce, further insult to injury through the small bottling run of 200 dozen."

97 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked grapes were open-fermented and hand-plunged before spending 14 months in used French puncheons; Pannell recommends decanting several hours before drinking. Medium crimson colour introduces a wine that is eager to display its fragrant red fruits on the bouquet and on entry to the palate before persistent, fine-grained tannins make their presence felt. They are fundamental to both the present and future character of the wine, which will change with age, but in absolute terms be neither of higher or lesser quality than it is now."

2012 Dalwhinnie "Moonambel" Shiraz Pyrenees Victoria

(7/2014)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Shiraz Moonambel offers a gorgeous perfume of violets, aniseed and dark chocolate over a core of cassis, ripe blackberries and cedar plus a hint of spice box. Medium-bodied, fine, elegant and tightly woun ...Read More »

2014 Turkey Flat Rosé Barossa Valley South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "A specifically grown and tailored blend. Small wonder it is one of the best selling roses on the market, its upgraded label print and branded clear glass bottle drawing the eye; it is supremely elegant, fresh and balanced, its red fruits sparkling like stars on a clear night - there is no static or distraction from its message."

2010 Oakridge "864 Single Block Series Winery Block" Syrah Yarra Valley Victoria (Previously $50)

96 points James Halliday: "Bright, clear crimson-purple; supple and luscious, with vibrant red and black cherry aromas, which flow through to the mouthfilling palate; the whole berry ferment results in great purity of the fruit flavour, yet it has all of the texture one could wish for." (11/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2010 864 Winery Block Syrah offers up attractive red and black berry aromas alongside notes of pepper, earth and bark intermingled with some herbal hints of stems and florals. The medium-bodied palate has vibrant acidity, a medium level of rounded tannins ...Read More »

2010 Yalumba "The Signature" Cabernet-Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "A 52/48% blend, matured in a combination of French, Hungarian and American oak, 35% new. The strengths of the vintage have been clearly transcribed. Medium-bodied but powerful. Blackcurrant, dried tobacco, sawdusty oak and mint. Freshness has been maintained. Tannin, oak, fruit and acid work as one. Beautiful example of a traditional Australian style." (7/2014)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Yalumba The Signature (Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz) has a slightly muted nose giving notes of macerated plums, blackberry preserves and menthol with suggestions of ...Read More »

2012 S.C. Pannell "The Vale" Shiraz-Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia Top Pick!
2012 S.C. Pannell "The Vale" Shiraz-Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "A blend of Shiraz and Grenache, old vines the source of the grapes. A fragrant bouquet speaks of the seamless union of the high-toned red fruits of the Grenache and the black fruits of the Shiraz; the role of tannins is important, that of oak less so. Will flower profusely with 2 or 3 years in bottle." (7/2014) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "The truly wondrous thing about wine is that speaks of where it comes from. All true wine has a local accent - something distinct and unmistakable that helps you place it in an instant. This old vine Shiraz Grenache is our wine of... Read More »

2010 d'Arenberg "d'Arry's Original" Shiraz-Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $20)

91 points James Halliday: "Traditional style. Little sign of oak, sweet core of fruit, deceptively assertive tannin but an overall impression of softness. It doesn't look to be an ageworthy style but it will be. Blackberry, iodine and raspberry notes. Ferrous tannin. Good length."91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(53% grenache and 47% syrah) Vivid ruby. Intense red and dark berry aromas complicated by notes of rose, white pepper and licorice. Explosive black raspberry and cherry compote flavors are firmed by a touch of bitter chocolate and show very good depth. Dusty tannins give grip to a long, focused finish. T ...Read More »

2010 Andrew Thomas "DJV" Shiraz Hunter Valley New South Wales

94 points James Halliday: "Mid-crimson, bright; a spicy and red-fruited bouquet with cinnamon, roasted meats and licorice on display; the palate is fleshy and forward on entry, immediately accessible, yet with backbone and a medium-bodied structure of silky fine tannins providing an expansive and harmonious conclusion." (7/2012)

2012 Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet-Shiraz South Australia

97 points James Halliday: "Deep, dense crimson-purple; the profound bouquet offers every kind of black fruits imaginable, large and small, yet somehow leaves a space and air in the mix for more complex secondary characters to emerge given time - lots of it. The palate takes all this, and adds to it with barrel ferment characters introducing licorice and touches of wild herb. This wine fully lives up to the great expectations held of it (and the vintage). Arguably the bargain of the release."91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon and 46% Shiraz made with fruit from Wrattonbully, Barossa, ...Read More »

2013 De Iuliis Sémillon Hunter Valley New South Wales

94 points James Halliday: "Is already settling into a sound drinking place. It's all strung on a taut line of acidity but the lemon, apple, hay and spice notes give something to enjoy now. That said, it shows all the signs that, over the medium term at least, it will mature deliciously." (7/2014)91 points James Suckling: "Sliced apples and peaches on the nose follow through to a full body, bright acidity and a tropical fruit aftertaste. Drink or hold. Screw cap." (10/2013) K&L Notes: The Hunter Valley is renowned for producing some of the best Semillon in the world. This wine displays fresh, lifted citrus characters, a l... Read More »

2012 Henschke "Keyneton Euphonium" Shiraz-Cabernet Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Deep, bright crimson-purple; a lusciously rich and complex wine with red, blue and black fruits overflowing from the glass both on the bouquet and palate; surely the richest and most full-bodied Euphonium so far made. Will live for an inordinately long time.." (7/2014)94 points James Suckling: "A blend of shiraz (65%), cabernet sauvignon (20%), merlot (10%) and cabernet franc (5%) with a more serious nose that has dark blackberry fruit and a spicy edge, some graphite and distinctly cabernet notes, it shows confident ripeness too. The palate is rich, fleshy and even, showing plenty ...Read More »
