Yalumba Y Series Sangiovese Rosé 2018

There's cheap wines under 15 bucks and then there's the Yalumba Y Series which consistently punches above its weight. If you like the pink looking stuff but don't want to drop a bomb, get in the queue for this.

Curly Flat White Pinot 2018


White Pinot that just dances across the mouth. Applaud now.

Part of me doesn't want to put pen to paper but rather just sit back and enjoy a glass or two. Perhaps I will later. Such an indulgent wine.


Yalumba Y Series Chardonnay 2018

Another Y Series wine, another value pick. A tidy Chardy that won't break the bank.


Huntington Estate Special Reserve Semillon 2017

"I love Semillon's freshness, crispness and ease of drinking. Best of all, I love its versatility," says Huntington Estate owner Tim Stevens. He has fulfilled the brief here too, that's for sure.


Savina Lane Lady of Spain Graciano 2015


This is the only Graciano grown in Queensland with the next closest vineyard in Mudgee, NSW. Weighing in at only 12.7% alc, there's a bigger frame on the bones than one would expect.

Cooks Lot Allotment 168 Chardonnay 2017

I don't know what type of car Duncan Cook drives around the streets of Orange, but I've suggested too many time before that his wines are far too reasonably priced for what you get. If he jacked them up a few bucks each he'd be driving a Maserati I'm sure. This is another steal for the money.

Savina Lane Millenium Shiraz 2015


A Shiraz which unleashes its inner beauty with consummate ease.

Flametree Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018

A good ol' summertime slurp. Lots of refreshing factor seeping through its veins.

Yalumba Y Series Pinot Grigio 2018

A soft and more than approachable Pinot Grigio. Wild fermented and vegan friendly, it's well worth hunting down at this price point.

Singlefile Run Free Chardonnay 2017

Singlefile's entry-level range. This Chardonnay is from Denmark in the Great Southern region of Western Australia.

Yalumba Y Series Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Wild fermented and vegan friendly, this is an easy drinking Sauvignon Blanc. Clean and crisp all the way.

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.

Cooks Lot Iconique Barrique Chardonnay 2016

Duncan Cook's flagship Chardonnay and nothing has been held back in his quest for excellence. It's a pleasure to drink, that's for sure.
