Stomp Fiano 2016
Hunter Valley Fiano certainly has found its niche in the market. This 2016 release from Stomp is a beauty!
Stomp Fiano 2018
It was great to open this current release alongside the 2016. A beautiful contrast. If you yearn for freshness - go here. If you need texture and depth - go the 2016.

Ridgemill Estate The Czar Saperavi 2016
Scarborough Wine Co. Blue Label Chardonnay 2017

Seppelt Drumborg Chardonnay 2017
de iuliis Steven Vineyard Shiraz 2017
Gundog Estate Canberra District Shiraz 2017
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.
Seppelt Jaluka Chardonnay 2017
If you aspire to indulge in the Drumborg Chardonnay but your pay packet won't let you for the minute, go here and your satisfaction levels will be met. A lovely wine at the price point.

Yalumba Y Series Riesling 2018
Raidis Estate Billy Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
A great Coonawarra Cabernet smack bang in the slot of good times and cheer. Medium bodied happiness awaits.
Cooks Lot Allotment 1010 Shiraz 2017
Tyrrell's Blacksmith's Hut Heathcote Shiraz 2015
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.

Curly Flat White Pinot 2018
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.
Yalumba Y Series Chardonnay 2018
Huntington Estate Special Reserve Semillon 2017
Savina Lane Lady of Spain Graciano 2015
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.

Two Hands Angel's Share Shiraz 2017
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!
Heartland One 2015
A big, thick set type with muscular shoulders. And it needs those shoulders to haul the dense and concentrated fruit within.
Raidis Estate The Trip 2014
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.
Polperro Even Keel Canberra Syrah 2017
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.

Seppelt Chalambar Shiraz 2016
A blend of Grampians and Heathcote vineyards, say hello to a satisfying Shiraz ensuring a solid go-to. It's pretty handy value too.
Leeuwin Estate Prelude Chardonnay 2016
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.

Cooks Lot Iconique Barrique Chardonnay 2016
Sirromet Elezo Amphorae Chardonnay 2014
Chardonnay hitting the target. Well played here winemaker Adam Chapman.
One of a collection of wines from the Elezo range.

Curly Flat Pinot Gris 2018
Pinot Gris that just sizzles. What a beauty. Personality and interest with a soothing embrace to close. Bless.

Ricca Terra Arinto 2018
Irvine Eden Valley Merlot 2017
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.
