THE WINES

2018 O’Leary Walker Sauvignon Blanc - $17
Excellent value for money SB from Clare
Pale straw green tints. Lifted tropical fruit aromas highlighted by gooseberry and passionfruit. Textured fruits, nicely balanced with zippy acidity, long clean palate

2018 Michael Hall Sang de Pigeon Adelaide Hills Chardonnay - $24
First ever release!
From two parcels of fruit from Lenswood and Piccadilly in the Adelaide Hills. Textured and deliciously easy to drink with a gentle caress of oak. It's really hard to find better value out there!

2017 Toblar Friuli Pinot Grigio - $24.50 
Delicious skin contact PG for an amazing price
Intense, generous and complex nose, with notes of wild rose and acacia blossom that mesh with tropical fruit and apricot. The palate is textured, voluminous, but backed by an elegant acidity and a long, velvety finish all in yellow peach and ripe apricot. Exceptional value for such a well crafted wine.

2018 Hayes Family Wines Alice's Mataro - $24
Such a deep, delicious wine
"Deep youthful red/purple colour, with a slight suggestion of raisined grape aroma, spicy too, with depth of character beyond its tender age. There's a little youthful aggression but also richness and concentration. This took a while to open up and show its goods. Lots of pepper and spice, deep and earthy and full of mystery. Great value." - 92 Points and Silver Medal, Huon Hooke

2018 The Wanderer Yarra Valley Pinot Noir - $34
Expressive and perfumed YV Pinot
"Abel clone makes its way into this wine, which is the major chat on the wine from Andrew Marks. Well, when he isn’t talking gin. Fragrant pinot noir of red berry freshness, touches of green herb, whiff of earthy clove, all quite subtly meshed. Glossy textured, sweet-ish flavours, a lick of gritty tannin and an earthy, garrigue-laced finish. Has a succulence and length too. Sense of deliciousness writ large. Super lovely." - 93 Points, Mike Bennie, The  Wine Front

2017 Sailor Seeks Horse Huon Valley Pinot Noir - $50
Textbook Tassie PN, great price
“Some of Tasmania’s finest. It only sees 5% whole bunches but there’s oodles of spice here. It makes such an excellent impression. Smoky and sweet at once, ripe and tangy too. It’s a savoury style but there’s far more to it than that. Tannin curls and cuts as it tightens and pulls. We call it cherry red and black and sometimes plum but it tastes more so of pinot noir. An infusion of sweet, roasted nuts. Beautiful." - 95 Points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

2015 Château Labégorce Margaux - $85
Elegant Margaux from a fantastic vintage
"The 2015 Labegorce is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc matured in 45% new and 55% one-year-old barrels. Deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of red and black cherries, black plums and cassis with touches of charcuterie and tapenade, the medium-bodied palate offers great concentration with a firm frame of grainy tannins, finishing long and savory." - 93 Points, The Wine Advocate
