Yalumba Patchwork Shiraz 2013
I caught up with Jane Ferarri a few years ago. Such a generous individual with her time, she is so fantastically hilarious and ever so knowledgeable about her patch of Barossa dirt.
We sat and ate breakfast at her favourite Angaston cafe and chewed the fat on a range of topics. She loves poetry, too, but she wasn't about to sneak a cheeky insight into her upcoming gig at the Elvis festival in Parkes (she went on to win the best poet of the whole shebang). Those who've spent time with Jane know she speaks sense. So when she does talk, you just listen.

A fabulous Hunter Valley aged Semillon. A museum release from Gundog Estate, this runs deep before asking some questions and then pulling you in closer. Superb!

Gundog Estate Marksman's Shiraz 2013
A 2013 Cellar Release and it's a beauty. Just wow. The more I see Matt Burton's wines the more I adore them. There's a meticulous touch which defines his work.

Whistle Post Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Here's a smart Cabernet from a label you may never have heard of. The good folk at Whistle Post are former growers who've cut their Hardy's contracts and gone it alone.

Huntington Estate Vintage Fortified Shiraz 2013

Seppelt Salinger Vintage 2013
I'm happy to be wrong but no other fizz would match honey soy chips as good as this. Not that I had honey soy chips on hand but you get the picture.
