Hidden Creek Shiraz 2018

I preferred this to its Syrah sibling. It comes across a little more polished. Perhaps more rounded is a better descriptor?

Hidden Creek Syrah 2018

Give this some air to let the pretty perfume sing. There's some volume here too.


Nomads Garden Gewurtztraminer 2018


Attractive scents from the outset hook you in. That's the Gewurtz way isn't it?

Bellwether Wrattonbully Shiraz 2017

Super smart Shiraz from the hands of Sue Bell. I could sit on a glass of this for some time just embracing the beautiful scents.

Mitchell Wines Kinsfolk Riesling 2017


Mitchell Rieslings are always a treat to behold but I'm not so sure about this new Kinsfolk release.

Nuova Scuola Viognier 2019

Viognier from the South Burnett - I can't say I've had one before so I was certainly curious when this arrived.

From the winery awarded Queensland's best at the 2018 Queensland Wine Awards comes this concentrated Chardonnay from the Granite Belt.

Nuova Scuola Nebbiolo 2018




There are more of these 'drink now' Nebbiolos on the market, and I've got to say, I like what they bring to the landscape.

Lightning Tree Tempranillo 2018


If eating Italian, invite this Spaniard along to keep you company.

Raidis Estate The Kid Riesling 2019

My favourite Coonawarra Riesling - there, I said it. In recent years it has gained some serious momentum going from a fab thirst quencher to a sophisticated wine which captures the region and variety beautifully.

Bellwether Ant Series Riverland Bianco d'Alessano 2017

Here's a variety that blew me away. My first look at Bianco d'Alessano as a table wine, although I have seen it as a Pet Nat previously.


Bellwether Ant Series Montepulciano 2018

Sourced from the Riverland's Ricca Terra Farms, this Montepulciano with have you salivating for more.
