Soumah Single Vineyard Pinot Grigio 2022


Pinot Grigio with a little colour! You have my attention. That slight copper appearance has me snapping my fingers. More like this, please.

A blend of all the white varieties on the Soumah property, Viognier, Savagnin, Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay come together to deliver a textural and thought provoking white.

Alkimi Wild Dreams Syrah Marsanne 2022


Great colour! A Syrah Marsanne blend, the vibrance of the hue is eye-catching. It's a smart wine capturing two not so common bedfellows.

Alkimi Wild Dreams Pinot Noir 2022


Whole bunch Pinot Noir in a clear bottle with a cork seal. Alkimi's Stu Dudine brings a little funk factor as he tends to do with ease. This will take a chill on warmer days adding to its bag of tricks. A summertime red if you will. Yes!

This is top-tier Cabernet. Cool climate excellence in a glass. Yarra Valley bliss all the way.

Alkimi Mistral Series Marsanne 2020


Marsanne continues to be a strong performer for Stu Dudine and he says that this 2020 release is his best. If you like your whites with a little bit of shape, stretch your interest levels a little further and give this a crack.

Alkimi Wild Dreams Light Dreams 2022

Made for large pours and plentiful plates of food, give it a slight chill and you're away.

Valentine Chardonnay 2021


Dom Valentine knows a thing or two about Chardonnay having spent some time at Oakridge before breaking out to his solo venture. The fruit for this great expression is sourced from the Lone Star Creek vineyard in the Upper Yarra Valley.

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.

Alkimi Wild Dreams Pinot Gris 2022


A certified organic Pinot Gris from Stu Dudine. The Wild Dreams showcases his inventive hipster side. This is Pinot Gris for those who ride skateboards with their hats on backwards.

Oakridge Vineyard Series Pinot Gris 2021


Some wines are better with food. That's not to say they are dud wines, but wine was made to enjoy with a meal and that will only enhance the experience. This Pinot Gris exemplifies that.

Oakridge Vineyard Series Hazeldene Pinot Noir 2021


Like a Pinot with spice? Go to the Oakridge Willowlake. Love the sleek touch? Go to Hazeldene. What a stunning Pinot Noir this is.

Oakridge Vineyard Series Henk Pinot Noir 2021


Henk is the boss. The more I see the wines from this vineyard the more I play the fanboy. Yarra Valley Pinot Noir in the zone. Yes!

Oakridge Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2021


Oakridge has the luxury of covering all price points. Slotting in at $30, this Yarra Valley range Pinot Noir is a solid wine.

Oakridge Vineyard Series Willowlake Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021


Willowlake doing Willowlake things. A wonderfully weighted Pinot Noir from Oakridge albeit with a little more spice this time. I can't recall a similar release but it's still damn slurpable.

Oakridge Original Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019


Guns 'n' Roses could have sung "Lay me down on a bed of Cabernet" and this bottle could have been on the album cover for that matter. It's just glorious. Find a comfy chair and you navigate the rest.

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.

Oakridge 864 Funder and Diamond Drive Block Chardonnay 2020


All that sparkles and glistens. A Chardy party for your insides. Another sublime Oakridge 864 awaits.
