O’Leary Walker Polish Hill River Riesling 2023


Why is Riesling the best value wine in Australia? Crack this for $30 and you'll sit bolt upright. What a blistering wine we have here!

Slow Fox Wines Chardonnay 2021


2021 was also a wet and cold year in Mudgee but this Chardonnay bounds along with greater energy and presence than its 2022 sibling. 

Slow Fox Wines Chardonnay 2022


From a wet and cold vintage, this Slow Fox Wines Chardonnay is a tidy drink.

Gundog Estate The Chase Semillon 2023


Clean, fresh and pure. The 2023 Hunter Valley vintage is said to be better for reds but this is a very tidy expression of Semillon.

Gundog Estate Wild Semillon 2023


For an off-dry Semillon, this hits the mark. The texture from skins is evident and the delish factor is high. A smart wine from Gundog Estate.

The pretty perfume and fruit purity of Eden Valley Riesling absolutely glistens and explodes from the glass. What a fabulous wine this is.

Nepenthe Pinnacle Mencia 2022


The Adelaide Hills is a Mencia hot spot at the moment. There are a vast array of interpretations of the variety which builds the curiosity factor. This release from Nepenthe is a spicy and dense rendition.

Pewsey Vale Prima Riesling 2022


The first harvested fruit from this vineyard walks the tightrope of sweetness and acid with respectability. Nicely balanced, it is bright and expressive.

Yangarra Estate Preservative Free Grenache 2022


PF for Preservative Free. Such a pretty hue captures the eye but there is some heft in the glass.

After Five Wine Co Montepulciano 2021

Staining depth. A wine that really digs its claws in, this a very tidy expression of Montepulciano from the southern Barossa.
