Jansz Vintage Cuvée 2019


Devilishly creamy with a bready complexity, there is an energy and vitality that urges you back time and again. This Jansz Vintage Cuvée 2019 is a beauty!

Holm Oak Cabernet Franc Rosé 2023


Barbecue Rosé. Grippy with some depth, this is certainly a wine best enjoyed with food. That savoury and earthy flutter plays a neat hand. Throw it at some skirt steak or a snag on bread - winning!

Holm Oak Arneis 2023


Known as the 'little rascal' due to its difficulty to grow, Arneis has found a happy home in Holm Oak's Tamar Valley vineyards. This is the first and only Arneis in Tasmanian soils - how good! A fabulous drink, the fleshy delivery is the clincher.

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.

Dalrymple Single Vineyard Ouse Pinot Noir 2021


My first look at Ouse and I've been swept off my feet. Pronounced "ooze", it oozes class through every pore. There is a mystique about its fine lines and lacey appeal that I just want to bathe in.

Dalrymple Single Vineyard Pipers River Pinot Noir 2021


Sleek! What a delightful Pinot Noir! Big love for the focus. The game face is on and it brings some tension too. Slinky. Delicious. Yes!

Dalrymple Single Vineyard Swansea Pinot Noir 2021


The Dalrymple Single Site Swansea Pinot Noir is a newbie for me and I like what I see. Part of the Single Site range, the poise and drive are what I'm here for.

Dalrymple Single Vineyard Coal River Pinot Noir 2021


Dense and with more weight than others in the Dalrymple Single Site range, there is a concentration and focus to this Coal River Pinot Noir.

Dalrymple Coal River Chardonnay 2022


Loaded with flavour and depth, this is a fabulous Chardonnay from Dalrymple. I'm sure that's what is drawing me closer each time. It may be the caramel drop delight. Perhaps it's the lemony tang. Regardless, I'll just keep sipping.

Dalrymple Pinot Noir 2022


No one loses with this in the glass. What an engaging and super tasty Pinot Noir we have here from Dalrymple.

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.

Josef Chromy Chardonnay 2022


Quite a commercial style of Chardonnay, it's easy to see why this has so much appeal. It's a crowd pleaser done well with some sprinkle dust to add polish.

Josef Chromy Brut Finesse Rose 2017


What a delightful fizz we have here from Josef Chromy. An energetic bead and blush appearance on the eye, it slides down all too easily.

Josef Chromy Pinot Noir 2021


A riot of red cherries sprint from the glass. From Josef Chromy, is a classic example of Tasmanian Pinot Noir.

Jansz Tasmania Vintage Rosé 2018


Some pink fizz to get you in the NYE mood... Made from 100% Pinot Noir, this is smart gear.

Load up your festive cheer with this fabulous vintage Tasmanian sparkling. I'll have another glass pronto, please.

Jansz Tasmania Late Disgorged Vintage Cuvée 2014


Jansz's Late Disgorged Vintage Cuvée 2014 has been held back to age on lees for an extra four years. The added complexity that the additional time has given this wonderful sparkling is telling. It's just another example of why consumers should drink more Australian sparkling rather than French imports.

Moorilla Extra Brut 2017


Muse is 'the subtle and complex' so the label says. And this exemplifies that. A fabulous glass of fizz from Tasmania's Moorilla, I'd happily recommend this ahead of those imported Frenchies at the same price point.

Barringwood Mill Block Pinot Noir 2020

If you like your Pinots big, consider this release from Tasmania's Barringwood. Big and bullish, it is all dense fruit with a whack of oak.
