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.


Whistle Post Rosé 2017

Whistle Post is the new kid on the block in Coonawarra. They've made a grand entry too with their new cellar door gaining plenty of attention.

Hickinbotham The Revivalist Merlot 2016

Such an elegant expression of Merlot. From vines planted in 1989 and 1976 sitting 220-245m above.

Out of Step Willowlake Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

These Out of Step wines are the shiz. Perhaps the best way to describe them in two words is 'eminent drinkability'. Smashing Pinot Noir from the famed Yarra Valley Willowlake vineyard.

Kellybrook Estate Reserve Shiraz 2017


Quite a charming wine in many ways without putting on too much of a show or bravado. Top drinking.

Ten Minutes By Tractor 10X Pinot Noir 2017


Use 'entry level' loosely for wines like this. The 10X range always punches above its weight.

Gundog Estate Off-Dry Semillon 2018


Off-dry Semillon - something not all that common, but I like different and this smashes the brief. A well-crafted wine to sit beside a spicy dish. Friday night take away come at me.

Oates Ends Tempranillo 2016


Smack bang in the delish zone. Tempranillo from Margaret River - and a beauty at that.
