I've been privileged to have a look at a number of wines by Kate Goodman of late - both her own label and her deeds for others. This Yarra Pinot is singing, more bass than pretty vocals mind you. Tap your foot to this beat.

Quite an interesting take on Vermentino. It's certainly not in the clean and crisp realm - but pleasure factor is high for those on the hunt for something with complexity and interest.
Nero done proud. A super exciting drink that's an expression those in Sicily would be striving to achieve.

I've never been one to follow instructions which may or may not have led to some frustration piecing together furniture. This time in I was on my best behaviour and followed the label instructions to the letter - 'Best enjoyed with freshly shucked oysters over summer.' What a treat. What a winner!

Apples and citrus fruit sit at the wheel of this approachable and refreshing Vermentino from McLaren Vale.
Rock solid Margaret River Cabernet though eyebrows were raised when 15% was noticed on the label. That said, the alcohol seems to be fairly well managed throughout - a small win I suppose.

Smart Chardonnay. My posture and interest levels adjusted for the better when seeing the fruit comes from the highly rated and consistently high quality producing Willowlake Vineyard.
The fifth release of this solid Shiraz from the red Terra Rossa soils of Coonawarra. Often available in chain stores for under $20 makes this a good buy.
