Max & Me Syrah 2017

For the majority of wines I taste, I write my notes, and that is that. Some wines, on the other hand, I taste then drink. Drop this Syrah in the category of the latter. One of those throw your arms around me types - gee it's delish!

Soumah Upper Ngumby Pinot Noir 2017

As soon as this hits my mouth I'm tasting and needing duck pancakes. Not just because it's Pinot, attractive savoury herbs hook me in.

Soumah Hexham Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

More straight-laced than the Upper Ngumby Pinot release, this presents neatly groomed type and walks with purpose.

Kellybrook Pinot Noir 2017

Easy drinking and no fuss entry-level Pinot from Yarra Valley's Kellybrook.

Clarence Hill Chardonnay 2017

Simple Chardonnay from a region only identified as 'Adelaide'. I can only assume Adelaide and surrounds which is a fair radius. Some further investigation reveals the majority of fruit comes from Currency Creek.

Out of Step Summerhill Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Left of centre Sauv Blanc to put you in the stretch zone. This is all hands off and taste buds on.

Soumah Equlibrio Pinot Noir 2017


A captivating energy pulls you in. Perhaps a little overexcited initially, it's a Pinot which cools its heals and settles into a neat grove exuding class and poise.

Curly Flat Pinot Noir 2016


What a wine it is. A polished gem from top to toe, it flows seamlessly from the first whiff to a long lingering finish.

Meerea Park Hell Hole Shiraz 2017


The 2017 Hunter Valley vintage was a beauty. Some say it's better than the highly regarded 2014. Dive in here and see for yourself - superb Shiraz.

Hollick Bond Road Chardonnay 2015



Coonawarra has one of the longest ripening seasons for Chardonnay in the world I'm reliably informed. This is a neat find - Coonawarra ain't just all Cabernet...


Blok Coonawarra Riesling 2016

The wines from Blok offer extreme value. Here we go again - a super Riesling.
