blü hen Montepulciano 2022

So, SO impressive! I tasted a few Montepulciano releases on my recent trip to Mudgee and this release from Robert Stein was way in front. What a belter!

Robert Stein Dry Riesling 2023

Fresh as a daisy, this brand new 2023 Riesling was tasted at the cellar door with winemaker Jacob Stein. It's so new it hasn't made an appearance on the website just yet. Little has changed from previous years - it's another brilliant release.

Yalumba Vine Vale Grenache 2022


Sexy as always, this is always my favourite Grenache in the Yalumba range. 

Dalrymple Pinot Meunier 2022


Something new and fabulous from Dalrymple... This debut Pinot Meunier is delicious and all I can say is just keep pouring.

Millennials love medium-bodied wines and this is right in their wheelhouse. Only a small batch production that is to be sold on premise, this oozes good times and good vibes.

Cool climate Cabernet getting the juices flowing. And juicy is the word. Black fruits are the hero with this Soumah release.

After Five Wine Co Serata 2019


The blending of unlikely bedfellows Shiraz, Montepulciano and Aglianico (50/29/21) has delivered an absolute treat. A generous wine with a stunning savoury edge, be sure to decant to see it at its best.

Soumah Hexham Vineyard Syrah 2022


Oh, I like this. The drinkability of these Soumah wines never ceases to impress. Get one for now and one for later, you won't lose.

After Five Wine Co Shiraz 2021


After Five Wine Co. If there was ever a label wine drinkers would know back to front, it would be this one - coz we all want is something delish after five, right? Clever, smart booze. Polish, sheen, length and delish factor describe it best.

Storm King Wine Co Tempranillo 2022


Tempranillo with 60% whole bunch carbonic maceration - now that's pushing the dial with the variety and your taste buds are the winner. A great wine from Storm King Wine Co.

Storm King Wine Co Shiraz Malbec 2022


Quite an intriguing wine, this Shiraz Malbec keeps its cards close to its chest yet there is a mystique that keeps drawing you back for more time and again.

Penny's Hill Skeleton Key Shiraz 2021


With the ability to age pulsing through its veins coupled with a rich concentration of fruit in the mid-palate, this is a great McLaren Vale Shiraz from Penny's Hill.

Storm King Wine Co Vermentino 2022


Release number two of this captivating and uber-impressive expression of Vermentino from Storm King Wine Co. Dripping with interest, it is a wine that continued to develop the longer it was open. An excellent wine hands down and if texture is in your wheelhouse, head over this way.

Briar Ridge Limited Release Wrattonbully BDX 2021


Named the BDX, you could assume it's a Bordeaux blend but its main player is Barbera. It's not so Bordeaux then is it? But given the appellation law has changed (a law many would be oblivious to), it's a curious name I must admit.

Yelland and Papps Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2021


Barossa Cabernet doesn't usually entice me into a deep dive but I'm ready to somersault into this Yelland & Papps release with pike. Damn delicious and easy to drink, it's insanely smooth and velvet like.

Yalumba Eden Valley Syrah 2021


This Eden Valley Syrah found its mojo after a couple of days of tasting. To say it developed wonderfully in that time would be an understatement. Give it a good decant or some time in the cellar and kick back to be rewarded for your patience.

Stockman's Ridge Signature Gruner Veltliner 2022


This Stockman's Ridge Signature Gruner Veltliner was harvested riper and barrel fermented to differentiate it from its sibling. The different handling is telling and the generosity is evident.
