Great to see a Rosé with some colour rather than everything now being that pale salmon appearance... Made with Cabernet Sauvignon, this Rosé comes from the Canberra district.

Winemaker Matt Burton suggests warmer years produce the better Wild Semillons. The aim of this label is to achieve greater levels of natural flavour and phenolics.
When you hear someone say that Verdelho is boring and one dimensional, thrust a glass of this their way.

From Block H, this Pinot is only released in exceptional years. Since 1998, this is only the fourth release under this label which is a nod to the TarraWarra Estate founders.
There's a precision to Seville Estate's Chardonnay. It's a scintillating drink that seems to be living on a knife-edge.
From vines planted in 1969, the 2019 vintage presented lower yields and later ripening than the 2018.

Just when you think Oakridge Chardonnay is in a pretty place and things can't get better, along comes this cracker. Wow! Chardonnay lovers rejoice!
A wine that just oozes charisma and takes you to a happy place. Pretty aromas hook you in from the outset.

I first had a look at this during the Coonawarra Roadshow event which recently hit every capital city in Australia. There's no better way to check out the region than having a significant number of the region's wineries arriving in your home town. Avail yourself when they swing by next year and taste cracking wines like this.

A tannic beast - you can see why this is released with a couple of years under its belt.

You are not left wondering after taking a look at this Syrah from Levantine Hill. There's so much going on.

Yarra Valley Pinot Noir made by Seville Estate. Bargain factor a plenty where big smiles come for free.

This First Growth 2014 follows last year's 2015 release - a not too common sight. With a tighter structure than the 2015, this 2014 needed another year in bottle to settle.

This is all sorts of delicious. Impress those around you with something a little left of centre - Saperavi in the pleasure zone.
No one loses with this splashed in the glass. Fresh and modern entry-level Chardonnay from the Yarra Valley's TarraWarra Estate.

Hexham, there's a sense of precision about this Chardonnay.

Syrah. I've never met Jake but I get a clear sense he is a winemaker keen to take a few risks for the love of texture and interest in his wines. Respect! This Riesling is a textural number which calls for summertime love.
