Valentine Sauvignon Blanc 2020

 

Fancy piss. This is the type of Sauv Blanc you'd be slinging in Fitzroy with cool beats in the background. It's good gear.

Nightfall Leo Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

 

This Nightfall Cabernet is the business. From clever packaging to a cracking wine in the glass, winemaker Sam Brand excels once again.

Pegasus Bay Bel Canto Riesling 2020

 

Layered and generous, this is a serious Riesling for serious Riesling lovers. Harvested a little later and fermented dry, it's such an expressive and considered wine. Dive in with pike!

Seville Estate Old Vine Reserve Shiraz 2020

 

Seville Estate has this air of brilliance about it. Drive in and it's that quaint cellar door but dig deep and it's all focus and sophistication. This Shiraz lights those traits up and then some.

Dappled Traditions Cabernets 2020

 


Shaun Crinion, the owner and winemaker of Dappled Wines, sure knows how to slap together a smart wine. A chilled out dude, he is quite considerate about his craft. This Cabernets is a top drink and screams value - as do all of his wines.

Kellybrook Estate Reserve Pinot Noir 2020

 

Kellybrook's best Pinot and only 50 dozen were produced. First planted in 1975, this is a blend of their best barrels.

Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Cabernet Shiraz 2020

 

From the Crayères Vineyard in Wrattonbully comes this generous but well-proportioned Cabernet Shiraz. The detail and shape are all class - it's an excellent wine hands down.

Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2020

 

Wrattonbully Cabernet Franc done well. Very, very well. With a beautiful perfume, I'm hooked from the outset. Given the asking price, this is an excellent buy.

Anarchy Wines The Alchemist Shiraz 2020

 

Anarchy is a project born from two Gold Coast mates taking their love of wine to the next level. Winemaker Dave Rushton packed up and moved to the Barossa leaving his film and television carrier behind to chase the dream. Respect! This tidy Shiraz is one of three wines in the range.

Yangarra Estate Ovitelli Blanc 2020

 


Welcome to the debut Ovitelli Blanc release. A magnificent wine, there is plenty going on as you'd expect from Yangarra Estate. The back label states, "Renowned for our Grenache and respecting the distant homelands of this variety, we planted its white varietal cousins." Lovers of texture and interest ought to dip their oar in.

A little radiant star of mid-week delight coming at you from the Barossa. You can't go wrong with this for $18. Yes!

A beautiful Central Otago Pinot that glides through the mouth, this is a fabulous drink.

Another fascinating Pinot Noir from New Zealand's Waipara region, this Black Estate Damsteep is expressive and layered.

Driftwood Single Site Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

 

This is good. Really good! It has that yin and yang appeal as the fruit and savoury goodness playfully seek the upper hand.
