A fresh and tropical fruit driven Sauvignon Blanc from a vineyard perched 930 metres above in Orange, NSW.

Medhyk is the Cornish spelling for doctor. Best you take the medicine this doctor prescribed - a superb example of McLaren Vale Shiraz.

I first saw this Dam Block when it was released a couple of years ago. At the time, it was finally deemed good enough to stand on its own two feet rather than being blended away as was the case previously. Good to see it back once more - it's a peach.

A great little wine sourced from 41-year-old vines in Mudgee, NSW, this Shiraz saw 15 months of one, two and three-year-old French and American oak.
Rosés like this call for large plates of tapas surrounded by good company. Made from Shiraz sourced from the Alpine Valley, this goes very well.

Smart Chardonnay named in honour of the family who established the winery with son Rob Diletti now the winemaker. I could drink lots of this.
Flametree's entry-level Chardonnay and it's a rock-solid wine. I would happily have a couple of glasses. Gee, we are blessed with quality at this price point in Australia.

The flagship of the Patrick range, oh this is a beauty. Find a comfy seat and sip it slowly to embrace the beauty. Divine.
