I'm told this is the only Crement de Rosé in Australia but I'm happy to be corrected.

Awash with strawberries, raspberries and blue fruits, the splendour of Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz whisper for your attention.
Hello old friend. A long time between drinks... A Yarra Valley Chardonnay that keeps on producing the goods.

Proper Barossa Shiraz. Take your shoes off at the door, exchange pleasantries, come in and sit bolt upright, no elbows on the table thank you. And please, don't spill anything on those bone-white chinos. This is all class so bring your best behaviour.
A little leaner and dancier in the mouth than its Nitschke Road sibling yet it's a pretty and more aromatically expressive Ebenezer Shiraz.

A Chardonnay that is said to be made to appease sommeliers and Gen Zers because it's the type of wine they want.

Of Light and Shadow. If only life could be so simple. But perhaps, within that, Tim Shand from Punt Road Winery can show us it can be with super delicious expressions of Pinot Noir such as this.
Viognier can be a super drink when done well. There are a lot of drifters on the scene but you get a sense this release floats on a cloud. Moreish. Delicious. Yes!

Lots of oak. Thirty-three months of it deliver heady aromas. But it settles and patience is rewarded. Throw it in a decanter and leave it to reap the rewards.
Andy Williams's exploration of emerging varieties is quite exciting. His plans for the future are worth sticking around for too. Watch this space. This Touriga is an impressive number sure to please.

Don't you just love it when different works? Not your usual bedfellows but this Sagrantino Mataro combo hits the mark.
I can see myself with a glass of this in hand standing by an open fire on a chilly afternoon. A dense red sure to warm your insides during the cooler months.

Oakridge doesn't miss a beat. Ever. Be it their classy top-end wines or their entry-level labels like this Over the Shoulder range. Excellence is rooted deep in their veins and here we go again with this Cabernet Merlot.

This one-acre vineyard can be found two kilometres from the McLaren Vale township. A property used for weddings, films, television commercials and even a visit by the Queen.
