Jansz Late Disgorged Vintage Cuvée 2015


Great fizz! It drops the mic on many imported Frenchies around the same price, that's for sure. Elegant and silky, this is an eight-year-old sparkling in the zone.

Colmar Estate Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2015


A sparkling 2015 Chardonnay Pinot Noir with beguiling freshness and a complexity that draws you closer. Hands down, it's a brilliant fizz from Colmar Estate.

Yarra Yering No. 1 2015


I was fortunate enough to taste this exquisite release from 2015 when I dropped by the cellar door not too long ago. In a re-release of 2015, only 100 bottles were made available. In short, it's a stunning wine.

Wicks Estate Pamela Vintage Sparkling 2015


There's depth here but it's dancy and energetic. It just makes you want to bound along for the ride. A superb sparkling wine from Wicks Estate.

Pirate Cru Wines IMP's Shiraz 2015


Woah! This is what some refer to as a 'big Barossa Shiraz'. There is some muscle about this blockbuster.

Geoff Merrill Jacko's Shiraz 2015


A solid companion without being an excitement machine. A Shiraz that is very much in the traditional mould. The aging has been done for you so there is no need to wait.

Trifon Estate Family Reserve Shiraz 2015


Some of these Trifon Estate wines have a good bit of age on their side and they are drinking very well right now. I enjoyed the Humble Vine Tempranillo and this is very tidy too.

Humble Vine Select Tempranillo 2015


Pitched beautifully, this is a wonderfully balanced Tempranillo from Victoria's Goulburn Valley.

Lagoon View Cabernet Sauvignon 2015


Roast night red coming in large format. Set plenty of places around the table to share this easy-drinking Cabernet magnum.

Patrick Coonawarra Two-Blocks Shiraz 2015


Luke Tocaciu is a smart winemaker. His wines mirror his personality: quiet, considerate with a dose of charm. This Shiraz is a beauty and drinking beautifully now and will still reward the patient despite already being a six-year-old release.

Tyrrells Vat 1 Semillon 2015

As with all Tyrrell's aged Semillons, they show so much vitality and freshness. A brilliant Vat 1 release once again.

Yalumba The Caley Cabernet Shiraz 2015

Of all the wines that have come across the Qwine tasting bench, this has been the most compelling and the purest. This Yalumba Caley is a wine that oozes class as pleasure seeps through every pore. Raise this up on the highest pedestal as every accolade is well deserved.

Howard Park Grand Jeté 2015

Jeté is a ballet movement - something I never knew. The way this sparkling glides through the mouth I'm not surprised it's a dancer. A graceful and elegant wine in every sense.

Brand and Sons Icon Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Five years young, you get the sense it's still busting a move more than Young MC. Time in the glass takes then hold, and oh gee, this is a delicious wine.

Main Divide Pinot Noir 2015

Having spent a few days in New Zealand's Waipara district a few months ago, my love for Pinot from this region was rekindled. This second tier label release from Pegasus Bay is a beauty!
