Hello sunshine and hello seafood! A blend which is a little something different but deserves a whole lotta love. Brad Hickey is a McLaren Vale winemaker worth keeping an eye out for: quality + creativity.

There's no hero variety coming from the Granite Belt. Although so many work well, some are more consistent than others. Tempranillo is a variety which always seems to strike the right chord. Here's another example. Coming from a site on the northern end of Ballandean, this is the first Tempranillo produced by Witches Falls.

Hand up if you have bought a wine based on the label? Yup, me too. We all have. And in many cases, you are left disappointed with what's inside. These Nikkal wines from Kate Goodman not only possess smashing shelf appeal, but the wine inside is cracking. Here's a terrific Rosé to sit back with and cool your heels.

A lovely Chardonnay release from Kate Goodman. With a striking label, this is a damn easy wine to kick back with. Better still, any friends you have who see Chardonnay as dense, weighty and buttery - throw them a glass of this. Conversion is sure to follow.

Inspired by the off-dry Rieslings of Germany comes this wine retaining 24 grams of residual sugar.

Such a pretty little thing. As with the Estate Chardonnay release, here's a label that rarely misses the target.
Awarded the best Organic wine at the Mudgee Wine Show 2017. Zinfandel (also known as Primitivo) is big in the US.
A classic Bordeaux blend of five varieties, each contributing delivering a sophisticated wine which will reward cellaring for beyond a decade.
Three Peos Estate wines landed on the doorstep. A new label to me, no information came with them. No RRP, no specs. As per the website: Manjimup has been home to the Macedonian-born Peos family for more than 80 years. With viticulture in their historical veins, brothers Vic, John, Kon and Chris banded together in 1996 to create their dream vineyard as a legacy to their late father, Jim Peos, and late grandfather, P.Y. Peos. The Four Kings range is named after the four Peos brothers.
