Two Hands Angel's Share Shiraz 2017



I haven't seen a Two Hands wine for ages. A mate of mine bangs on about their reliability mind you. Enter marketing gun Pippa Merrett who recently commenced a new role with the company. She has a track record of making stuff happen and some samples suddenly appeared at my door. Thanks Pip!

Heartland One 2015


A big, thick set type with muscular shoulders. And it needs those shoulders to haul the dense and concentrated fruit within.


Raidis Estate The Trip 2014


Raidis' top dog Cabernet Sauvignon but they're all about goats on their label names so it'd be the top goat I guess. Quite simply, it's a great wine too.

Polperro Even Keel Canberra Syrah 2017


What's not to love about the medium-bodied Syrah deliciousness coming out of Canberra? Such a beautiful wine to consider or just share in great company. I'd be chasing the latter.

Seppelt Chalambar Shiraz 2016


A blend of Grampians and Heathcote vineyards, say hello to a satisfying Shiraz ensuring a solid go-to. It's pretty handy value too.

Leeuwin Estate Prelude Chardonnay 2016



A powerful and concentrated Chardonnay but one I could throw in the glass and recline with without a worry in the world. More and more again please.

Curly Flat Pinot Gris 2018


Pinot Gris that just sizzles. What a beauty. Personality and interest with a soothing embrace to close. Bless.

Flametree Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec 2016

This Cabernet Malbec blend has only just hit the shelves and it's one worth slipping into the black book for those seeking maximum Cabernet pleasure for around the 30 dollar mark.

Ricca Terra Arinto 2018

Ever had an Arinto? I haven't either - til now. Vigneron Ashley Ratcliff believes the variety has a big future in Australia and I reckon he has stumbled upon something.

Irvine Eden Valley Merlot 2017


A great Merlot right in the slot of drinking pleasure. From a cooler and longer Eden Valley vintage, there's a charm to this wine.

Schwarz Wine Co Chenin Blanc 2018

Such an easy drinking and approachable wine from a variety many would have seen little of. Go here for an easy kick back partner.

Ricca Terra Bronco Buster 2018

An out there blend of Fiano, Vermentino, Greco and Arinto with tropical and floral aromas spilling from the glass.

Leeuwin Estate Prelude Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Rock solid Margaret River Cabernet. You'd be a hard marker not to enjoy a glass or three of this.
