Hunter Valley Fiano certainly has found its niche in the market. This 2016 release from Stomp is a beauty!

An easy drinking Chardonnay made to drink now. Handfuls of lemony fruit and soft whiffs of raw nuts set a neat pace.

Such a pretty wine. The longer it sat in the glass the more it got comfortable and put on a show. And what a show it was.

A great Coonawarra Cabernet smack bang in the slot of good times and cheer. Medium bodied happiness awaits.
A big guy weighing in for the heavyweight bout. Coming in at 15%, credit to Tyrrell's for putting that number on as many avoid the magic number 15 and use the 1.5% variance carefully.

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.
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.

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!
A big, thick set type with muscular shoulders. And it needs those shoulders to haul the dense and concentrated fruit within.
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.
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.

A blend of Grampians and Heathcote vineyards, say hello to a satisfying Shiraz ensuring a solid go-to. It's pretty handy value too.
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.

Chardonnay hitting the target. Well played here winemaker Adam Chapman.
One of a collection of wines from the Elezo range.

Pinot Gris that just sizzles. What a beauty. Personality and interest with a soothing embrace to close. Bless.

A great Merlot right in the slot of drinking pleasure. From a cooler and longer Eden Valley vintage, there's a charm to this wine.
