Yelland and Papps Single Vineyard Vermentino 2021


Considered with its game face on, interest comes in buckets - it's the Yelland & Papps way. This is a fantastic take on Vermentino. Take me to Sardinia and feed me all the seafood.

Tomich Woodside Vineyard Chardonnay 2021

Lambert Wines Syrah 2021


If you need a dose of medium bodied delish you ought to head this way. A layered and silky Syrah awaits.

Just imagine squished red berries and mulberries rolled in a dark chocolate crumb and that's pretty much what's going on here.

Yarra Yering Chardonnay 2021


In a word - precise. There is so much to adore with this fine-boned expression of Chardonnay. It's seemingly in a class of its own.

Hoddles Creek 1er Pinot Noir 2021


The pool of excellent Yarra Valley Pinot Noir continues to get deeper. If you are yet to come across this Hoddles Creek 1er, I highly recommend that you introduce yourself. It's a beauty!

Driftwood Single Site Chardonnay 2021


Margaret River Chardonnay is awesome when done well and here we have another example. Interest awaits around every corner. This is an excellent wine.

Pegasus Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2021


Classy and considered, this is a superb Sauvignon Blanc. Yet to be released in Australia and New Zealand, what a treat it is to have a sneak peek at wines like these.

Although only a small quantity was produced, this is an excellent Pinot Noir from Hoddles Creek.

Hoddles Creek 1er Chardonnay 2021


Due for release on 10 October, I had the luxury of having a sneak peek at this 1er with Franco D'Anna in his winery last week. A Chardonnay of supreme class, line up for this one.

Yalumba GEN Organic Shiraz 2021


The only red in the new Yalumba GEN Organic and sustainable range but I suspect that may not be the case in the years to come. A Shiraz that ticks the boxes, in my opinion, this is the best of the five on offer.

Sutton Grange Fairbank Rosé 2021

I was told to have a porchetta roll from Heart Attack and Vine before leaving Melbourne this week. It's a good thing I'm very compliant when it comes to all things porkalicious. I grabbed a glass of this Sutton Grange off the list and what fabulous lunchtime wine it is.

This goes deep. Very deep. A Grenache grown on Survivor Vines (70 years+) in the Vine Vale sands, it offers plenty to consider. Want a Grenache with personality? Go here.
