Of the single vineyard wines in the Soul Growers range, give me this Gobell every time. It's a peach.
Elegant Yarra Valley Syrah. There's a soothing and calming presence about this wine as you sit back and cool your heels.

The Hampel vineyard is a low yielding site in Kalimna. There's a lovely elegance to this Shiraz - a fabulous wine.
Only 250 dozen were produced from this limited edition release. Named after a rogue group of sheep which snuck into the vineyard, "The Mob" came close to destroying it. Three years later the first crop produced this impressive wine.
A lazy lunch and Chardonnay was calling me. This was the only one listed by the glass but I knew I was in good hands - I've known Rochford to reliably produce the goods previously.

The Hoffmann vineyard was planted between 1888 and 1912. Over a couple of days of tasting, this unfurled beautifully.
Give this a little time in the decanter and you'll be repaid deluxe. A beautiful wine highlighted by delicate fruit.

A pretty expression of Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir. Dainty on its feet, a ballet dancer of sorts as it glides its way through the mouth with absolute ease. Poise and precision all the rage.

A gorgeous Chardonnay from the hands of Geraldine McFaul. With arms flung open, this is a welcoming and embracing wine with uber cool swagger.
Funky town Mataro. Whole bunches (84%), wild fermented, nine months in French oak (5% new), not fined or filtered.

Wrattonbully is often overlooked for it's more famous neighbour just up the road. Here's a Cabernet that's spot on.

I'm thinking fish and chips with a glass of this soaking up the calm serenity of a river flowing nearby.

They say beauty is only skin deep. Take a look at this and you see a wine that's cloudy - Perry and ginger beer like. Take a whiff and sip and you'll be grinning from ear to ear.

A tidy blend with some small percentages of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot making their voices heard.
Pizza, pasta and Tempranillo - a winning combo. A tidy wine to sit beside your meal. No fuss, no nonsense. Solid drinking.

There's power and ripe fruit awaiting your attention here. A fortified that slips down all too easily.

Oh, I love this wine. Feed it to me via a drip. The press release says, "New world wine done the old world way." That nails it really.
