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. Check our our selections from the land down under...

94 points James Halliday: "Selective-harvested, a mix of new and old clones destemmed and co-fermented, 10 days on skins, then pressed to French barriques (10% new) for mlf and 11 months maturation. Bright, clear crimson-purple-hue; Helen's Hill nailed this wine in a hectic vintage, the fragrant, high-toned flavours of red cherries and berries make oak a vehicle, not an end in itself." (08/2019)

While the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy may be unfamiliar to many here in the States, in Australia it is among the most prestigious honors a wine can receive. As our Aussie buyer Thomas Smith mentions, if our shipment of this wine wasn’t on the water when it got this accolade, there would be no way we could get this kind of quantity or pricing. We’re thrilled to be able to share this lucky break with our clients. We're even more excited to find the wine is every bit as good as its billing. We’ve been singing the praises of Xanadu for years now, so it onl...

2018 Helen's Hill "Ingram Road" Chardonnay Yarra Valley Victoria
Top Pick!
94 points James Halliday: "Selective-harvested, pressed to French puncheons (10% new) for primary (wild) ferment on solids, 20% mlf, 11 months in barrel with occasional batonnage. Fruit-driven, with good varietal expression (grapefruit, green apple) and bright acidity. The screwcap guarantees 5 years accumulation of complexity without loss of fruit freshness." (08/2019)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Warm with orange and spice notes, this gin is earthy and woodsy, finishing with a hint of bitter orange peel. Mix this mouthwatering gin made in Australia's Yarra Valley into Negronis and other bold-flavored cocktails. (KN)" (08/2017) K&L Notes: The pride of Australia is now available here at K&L! After sweeping Double Gold at the San Francisco Spirits competition and wowing serious fans of gin around the world, Four Pillars is bringing its incredible gins from down under to the U.S. Utilizing "four pillars" of success (qual...

96 points James Halliday: "Whole berry/carbonic maceration ferment, matured in French barriques for 16 months. This hits like a thunderstorm after you have navigated the fragrant bouquet and taken the first sip. Blackberry, red and black cherries and plum flood the fore and mid-palate before the whirlwind of black pepper, spice, licorice and dark chocolate take command before the fine, persistent tannins on the long finish and aftertaste." (08/2018) 94 points Sam Kim: "It is sweetly fragrant on the nose showing blackberry, plum jelly, thyme, toasted al...

2017 Oakridge "Henk Vineyard - Block 864" Pinot Noir Yarra Valley Victoria
Top Pick!
97 points James Halliday: "From the red volcanic soils of Woori Yallock. Hand-picked and sorted, 100% destemmed and wild-fermented with 21 days on skins, matured for 12 months in French oak (10% new). Has the wonderful colour, and the fragrance of spices, forest and red fruits, the palate with luscious fruit encased in silky tannins. Has the balance and length of great young Pinot whatever its provenance. " (08/2019) 96-97 points James Suckling: "Tasted the final blend pre-bottling. A parcel from the Henk Vineyard. This has an entrancing nose of ripe ...

96 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, whole berries and whole bunches small batch open-fermented, larger concrete fermenters at the original winery also included for extended maceration on skins for 2 weeks, matured for 19 months in French oak (27% new). Both bouquet and medium-bodied palate offer a tapestry of black fruits, spices and black pepper, tannins woven through the succulent, juicy black fruits, French oak there or thereabouts, and fine lingering tannins. " (08/2017) 92 points Vinous: "Bright violet. Potent, mineral-accented dark berry, col...

Located in the Yarra Valley of Australia, Oakridge produces four different offerings of wines produced with estate and purchased grapes. The "Over the Shoulder" wines are, according to the winery, "great examples of wines that typify varietal characteristics of the Yarra Valley. ... Amplifying flavours of everyday foods with their intensity and sharpness, these quality, cool-climate wines are low alcohol and are representative of the Yarra Valley region."

2016 Leeuwin Estate "Art Series" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia
Top Pick!
98 points Bob Campbell: "Very light colour for its age and the bouquet is likewise fresh and young and unevolved. There are subtle grapefruit, spice and nougat aromas and the oak is taking a back-seat. The wine is still tight and reserved, and really needs to be cellared. It's concentrated and will reveal much more if given time. It has outstanding length and finesse. Great potential. - Huon Hooke, The Real Review" (05/2019) 98 points James Halliday: "Straw-green in colour and powerful from the outset. Pure, juicy pear, white peach, sparks of spice, ce...

2015 Leeuwin Estate "Prelude" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $28) (Elsewhere $28)
Top Pick!
93 points James Halliday: "9% malbec included here, and I think it has it's say. There's ample classic Margaret River cabernet character for sure, and some vanilla and chocolate, but there's an (attractive) sappy raspberry/mulberry nuance in the bouquet and palate that's a little different. Overall it's impeccably well balanced and supple, flavoursome but not heavy. It's ready when you are." (08/2019) 93 points James Suckling: "Lots of plum and berry character with hints of rose petals and stems, too. Medium body, firm and lightly chewy tannins and a f...

91 points Vinous: "Inky ruby. Lively, spice-tinged aromas of cherry and dark berries, joined by slowly emerging woodsmoke and floral nuances. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering intense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that fan out slowly on the back half. Fine-grained tannins shape the very long, spicy finish, which shows very good clarity and lift. (JR)" (10/2017) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "There’s a silken texture to the tannins, and tight, fresh strawberry notes to the fruit, if you’re patient and give this wine plenty of air. It might st...


Four Pillars "Faultline" K&L Exclusive Gin (750ml)
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 Fautlline 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 Emeritas, wanting to build on the clean citrus notes and the creamy texture that are the calling cards of Four Pilla...

It took a year longer than they thought it would, but after labeling conflicts with the TTB and a bit of arguing over what exactly the Bloody Shiraz gin was (a liqueur? a sloe gin?), they finally settled on "flavored" and got the darn bottles onto American soil. Perhaps the single most delicious spirit made by Four Pillars, the Bloody Shiraz is finally on our shelf and ready for you to consume it all! Four Pillars is located in Australia's Yarra Valley, one of the centers of serious wine production in the country. Every year during harvest time, the guys...

94 points James Suckling: "Another very exotic white from Yeringberg, which remains focused and dialed-in. Dried pineapple is the main attraction on the nose, as well as apple pastries, red grapefruit, passion fruit and praline. An acutely smoky undertone, too. Round and opulent on the palate, but it is still very much in check. This is all thanks to a refreshing layer of acidity through the mid-palate, carrying this long through the finish. " (06/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Hints of roasted cashew accent lemon-curd notes on the nos...

2016 d'Arenberg "The Stump Jump" Shiraz McLaren Vale
Back In Stock!
90 points Wine Spectator: "Distinctive, with a fresh note of spearmint complementing the juicy core of plum and blackberry flavors. Herb, chai tea and cigar box elements linger on the long, expressive finish, where the tannins firm up but never get in the way. *Best Value* (MW)" (12/2018) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The medium-bodied 2016 The Stump Jump Shiraz is another terrific bargain. No, it's not a big, plush wine, but it is a crisp, remarkably drinkable mouthful of Shiraz. Red plums and cherries are buttressed by enough tannins so that this c...

92 points James Halliday: "It sits on the lighter side of medium-bodied but it's juicy, characterful and terrific to drink. It provokes the words 'there should be more wines like this'. Coffee grounds, licorice, deli meats, black pepper. A general plumminess too, and it's from here the flavour profile takes its sway. Every step of the way it feels and tastes good." (08/2018) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "This blend from Central Victoria includes Shiraz from cool-climate sites as well as fruit from some warmer vineyards. It comes together in a wine that’s ...


2015 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia
Back In Stock!
96 points James Halliday: "Reflects - in the best sense - John Duval's long career as the chief architect of Grange. This brings together depth, texture and complexity to a palette of black fruits, ripe tannins and oak. It cries out for patience (as does Grange), and the greater your patience, the greater the reward. *Special Value Selection* " 93 points James Suckling: "The nose is all blackberry and dark plums with background cola, earth and baking spices. The palate has density with the right hand of balance to guide it in." (07/2017) 93 points Win...


94 points James Halliday: "Matured for 15 months in French oak (10% new). Richly robed in luscious fruits supported by gentle tannins and a dab of oak. It is well made (of course) and is strongly Barossan in temperament. What you make of this will depend on your personal preference." (08/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro blend, the 2015 Plexus has a pale to medium garnet-purple color and nose of kirsch, red currant jelly and raspberry preserves with hints of Chinese five spice, hoisin, roses, black pepper and un...

2014 Leeuwin "Art Series" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $65) (Elsewhere $65)
Top Pick!
96 points Bob Campbell: "Very deep red/purple colour. The bouquet is all about concentrated, perfectly-ripened cabernet fruit embellished with stylish oak. Cedar and berries. The wine is very intense and cast in an elegant but full-bodied style, with red berry fruit in abundance on the palate. The tannins are emphatic but fine and restrained, beautifully tailored. A lovely wine indeed - to cellar or enjoy now. (Huon Hooke - The Real Review)" (05/2018) 93 points James Halliday: "Reticent. Firmly structured. Southern Margaret River across its verdant vei...

Sullivans Cove has been distilling single malt whisky in Australia's Tasmania region since 1994. Using all local barley, local water, and no additional coloring, their whiskies are finally making the long trek from down under to the United States. The American Oak expression is a full proof, spicy and richer version of the Doublewood that gets its flavor from ex-Bourbon casks. There's more sweetness from the wood and heavier vanilla accents. Aged for 10 years in a single, 200-litre American oak ex-Bourbon cask, this whisky is the defining style of Sulliv...

94 points James Halliday: "Multi-clone, wild-fermented in French oak (10% new), 10 months maturation. Generous and rich, with nectarine and white peach to the fore, neatly tightened on the finish by grapefruit/citrus acidity." (11/2017)

Xanadu has had roots in Western Australia’s Margaret River region since it was founded in 1977. For decades, the winery quietly produced Cabernet Sauvignon from its estate properties right outside the village of Margaret River. Then in 2005, the winery was purchased by entrepreneur Doug Rathbone, who recognized the immense potential of the property and set Xanadu on track to becoming a globally recognized producer. Glenn Goodall was hired on as head winemaker in 2006. He spent the following years conducting trials to improve the health and quality of the...

95 points Decanter: "The fragrant bouquet of creamy Christmas cake leads into a multifaceted palate of black fruit, prune, spice and cassis with affably dry, chalky notes. Bursting with quality. " K&L Notes: Platinum - Best in Show: Best Value Red Rhône Varietals - Decanter World of Wine Awards, 2017

94 points James Suckling: "This sits in the typical, just Cabernet-dominant style (54%) and marries cassis, blueberries, leaves and cedary-dominant aromas with more substantial blackberries and dark cherries, as well as redder tones at the finish. The regional sourcing here is cleverly played and delivers a fleshy, soft and smooth wine in 2017. Long, vanilla-laced after-trail. Drink over the next fifteen years. A stallion in the cellar!" (07/2019) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant, smooth and supple, showing off cedar, black tea and sandalwood aromas,...

97 points Bob Campbell: "Medium to deep red/purple colour with a bright, fresh, clean cabernet aroma of sweet cassis and background cedar. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with restrained but glorious flavour, and is slightly closed. It has a tight, firm palate, but reveals more and more blackberry, blackcurrant cabernet character as it airs in the glass. It's elegant and texturally refined. A beautiful cabernet with a big future. It demands patience. (Fruit is off the original Oakridge vineyard at Seville, to mark the Oakridge 40th anniversary.) (Huo...

93 points James Halliday: "Fermented in French barriques (40% new) and 9 months on lees with regular stirring. Fruit-driven bouquet with pear, citrus and stone fruit most noticeable, and a background note of nougat or marzipan, presumably an oak influence. There's a good mouthful of flavour here, ripe and juicy, finishing with a grapefruit-like tang that lingers. (SC)" (08/2019) 92 points James Suckling: "Delicious chardonnay with cooked-apple, lemon and pear character, as well as hints of cream. Full bodied, layered and flavorful. All here. Drink now....

92 points Decanter: "The richer counterpart to Bin 128, this warm-climate blend of Barossa, McLaren Vale and Padthaway fruit (no Upper Adelaide or Wrattonbully fruit in this vintage) is a deep, primary dark ruby colour. And yet it's from a cool growing season, with the harvest finishing a month later than the previous year. It displays a subdued, spicy richness of aroma spliced with a hint of cooler vintage pepper. The palate though is typically generously fruited, with blackberry fruit infused with Penfolds’ trademark toasty vanillin American oak - an u...

92 points James Halliday: "Awash with dense sweet spicy fruit, some raspberry confection, musk and eucalypt mingling with cedary oak and warm earth notes. Fuller bodied, concentrated with slightly raspy tannins." (08/2017) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a polished and tightly wound blend that is savory and meaty in flavors of tart cranberry, hoisin sauce and cigar box. It's a medium- to full-bodied wine, wrapped in drying, chalky tannins, but ends on a fruity finish. (CP)" (12/2018) K&L Notes: 43% Grenache, 35% Shiraz, 22% Mataro

2016 Torbreck "Descendant" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

98 points Decanter: "Viognier (6%) is co-fermented with Shiraz from RunRig cuttings planted in 1994. Like a great Côte-Rôtie, it starts with a thrilling nose and doesn’t let up until a week after you’ve put down the glass. (MJ)" (08/2019) 97 points James Suckling: "A wine that really sits at the heart of the Torbreck DNA with plenty of blackberries and plums. Graphite and dark chocolate, too. There’s a beautifully exotic peppery and spicy edge here. The co-fermented viognier really is exceptional. The length and build on the palate is phenomenal and th...

95 points Decanter: "Cascading chocolate and plum and a herbal bitters note. Serious depth, rigorous tannins and acidity. (MJ) " (09/2019) 94 points James Suckling: "Impressive richness and depth from the outset here. The nose has rich dark-plum, chocolate and earth aromas with such poise and richness. The palate is full-bodied with saturated plums and blackberries. Long, ribbony tannins. Drink or hold. Screw cap." (06/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet-brick colored, the 2005 Ancient Way Vineyard Summer's Vineyard gives up stewed tea, tobacco and tilled earth scents over a core of plum preserves, mincemeat pie, cherry cordial and chocolate box plus touches of truffles and smoky bacon. Full-bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has compelling earthy accents and a good long finish. (LPB)" (12/2018) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Deeply pitched dark fruit preserve aromas show a superripe, decadent character, w...

96 points Decanter: "Potent primary fruit, perfume and poise are the hallmarks of this long-lived classic - though thanks to earlier picking, less new oak and no malolactic, it has become sleeker. The expressive 2015 shows layers of heady oak, rock melon, dried pear, peach, pineapple, nougat and buttered popcorn. A relentless push of grapefruit acidity leavens and provides backbone and drive.

2017 Tyrrell's "1867 Old Patch" Shiraz Hunter Valley Australia
Back In Stock!
100 points James Suckling: "More depth than the four acres. This old plot was planted in 1867 and it has excelled in vintage 2017. The nose carries pristine aromas of raspberries, red plums and mulberries in gently spicy repose. The palate unfurls layers and layers of lightly spiced red- and dark-fruit flavors with tannins that seem to hold endlessly on the finish. Pitch-perfect and noble. An essay in grace and charm. Akin to grand cru Burgundy and maybe Musigny too! This really ought to be left alone for a decade" (10/2018) 97 points Bob Campbell: "De...

Winery notes: "This very Australian wine style is very dark red with an opulent purple mousse of fine bubbles. Complex layers of aromas, blueberries, plums, black olives, potpourri, fresh bread, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg and grilled nuts. Round plush fruit flavours with notes of spice and all things nice. The savoury mouthfeel and fine bead of bubbles give this wine a long persistent finish. This wine is great when drunk young but will soften and continue to develop complex characters in the bottle for the next 15 years or more. Drink it with a crumbly ol...

Originating from Italy the De Iuliis family have made the Hunter region their home since 1960. Joss and Anna De Iuliis followed their family passion for wine and chose a property in the Lovedale Road region of the Lower Hunter Valley, converting a grazing property into a 20ha vineyard with the first vines planted in 1990.

92 points Bob Campbell: "Pale, copper coloured sparkling wine that has spent seven months in oak and at least 18 months in bottle before being disgorged. It’s a blend of 68% Pinot Noir 26% Chardonnay 6% Pinot Meunier. The oak appears to have added extra texture and weight to the wine. It’s a bone-dry wine, despite having a residual sugar of 9 g/l. Austere and moderately complex sparkler with an appealing toasty influence."

95 points James Halliday: "Primarily from Wilyabrup, the remainder from Carbanup and Cowaramup, matured in French oak for 12-15 months. Bright crimson-purple; this massively overdelivers, steeped in redcurrant and cassis fruit, soft but persistent tannins, French oak joining hands with the fruit and letting out a cry of exaltation ‘you bewdy’! Drink to 2026."

Mr. Black is the new cold brew coffee liqueur from one of the world's great coffee cultures - Australia. I don't know what it is about the Aussies and their beans, but they don't play around when it comes to coffee. They take high quality 100% Arabica coffee and roast it in house at their small distillery north of Sydney. Producing consistently concentrated cold brew and fine-tuning water composition, temperature and time are lifelong obsessions for both the distillery's head of coffee, Detlef Mohr, and Master Distiller, Philip Moore.

Deep, although clear, in colour, it has a rainbow of flavours, its deep roots probing the soil nearby for sustenance that will provide tannins and all things needed for the grapes to provide the magic evolution of the red flowers and spices of this wine.

The long awaited Starward Whisky is finally here. These crafty Australians started with one simple idea - a whisky unshackled from tradition. Borrowing from the past, they've married traditional single malt with the best of what Australia has to offer. This Down Under dram is distilled from 100% Australian Malted Barley and matured in locally made Shiraz, Cabernet and Pinot barrels. The variable Melbourne weather creates vast swings in temperature creating a unique maturation environment and extreme interaction with the very active casks. Bottled at 82 p...

Brewery Notes: "We love hops, so it seemed natural to move the Pilsner towards the North German (Friesland) Style - these are hoppier and more bitter then the Southern German Pilsners. It’s made with 100% Pilsner Malt and German Perle hops - the key to this Beer is to let the aroma and bitterness of the hops shine through. The Beer really delivers on flavour, which is a creeper - this is a warning - the beer has an uncompromising and earth shattering bitterness; hell yeah..."
