2018 Garagiste Le Stagiaire Pinot Noir

Barney Flanders loves Pinot Noir, and his 2018 release of the value-packed Le Stagiaire Pinot Noir is another home run.

Made from a blend of fruit from Barney's outstanding single vineyards, with the best fruit from the Teurong and Balnarring Single Vineyard wines making their way into the blend this year. This represents the essence of Mornington Peninsular Pinot Noir.

Just 10% whole bunches used in the ferment this year with the emphasis squarely on ripe Pinot fruit, showcasing the impeccable vineyard management and winemaking of this Mornington guru.

It's unfined and unfiltered, with plenty of savoury complexity to balance the finish.

Value for money wise, this is an Australian Pinot Noir star.

2018 Coulter C2 Sangiovese

This is a bright and vibrant version of Sangiovese sourced from one vineyard in the Adelaide Hills.

Sangiovese can be a little raw as a young wine. The tannins hard, the fruit a little drying, but the Coulter Sangiovese looks pretty as a picture from day one. It's got everything you want in Sangiovese but with an easy-to-love personality.

The 2018 vintage received a glowing 96 point review from James Halliday who dubbed it, "as good as they come in sangio country."

It's the sort of wine you want on hand when good friends pop around and a plate of charcuterie is being shared.

2018 Aphelion The Affinity Grenache Mataro Shiraz

The 2018 Young Gun of Wine, Rob Mack, is on a serious hot streak at the moment. His ethereal expressions of  Rhone varieties from McLaren Vale are making plenty of people sit up and take notice.

Here Rob walks the tightrope of fruit weight, freshness and balance, with Grenache, Mataro, and Shiraz all playing their part in this excellent modern example of a classic blend.

With not a hair out of place, this is a great example of Rob's finesse in the winery and on the blending bench.

It's an absolute steal for those seeking sleek, modern red wines from SA.

2018 S.C. Pannell Nero Diavola

Steve Pannell's affinity with Italian varieties is well documented.

He has been a great champion of Italian red grapes and their suitability in the Australian climate and culture. Steve planted Nero d'Avola (Calabrese) on his Olivers Road vineyard a few years back. The wine is now here and ready to go.

This Sicilian variety makes soft, supple, slurpy wines that work well with a wide range of foods. Steve's central message always focuses around a fusion of wine with the Australian lifestyle. This wine is the perfect BBQ go-to.

A flood of berries, licorice, sweet spices and smooth, soft tannins, it's just a great all-rounder and a great addition to the S.C. Pannell stable.

2018 Beal & Co Little Red

Callum Beal is bringing Merlot back.

He believes the Adelaide Hills can grow some great, smashable versions of the variety. Here's a good example of what he's talking about.

Matured in stainless after a month on skins and whole-berry fermented, Beal is striving for freshness and drinkability - something more akin to a Beaujolais Nouveau than a dusty old Bordeaux.

It's medium-bodied, flush with plums and savoury black olive tapenade notes, and has more interest and drinkability than most Australian Merlots you'll meet. 

Perfect drinking for backyards and BBQs while the weather is warm.

2019 Mada Syrah Nouveau

The modern Australian Shiraz/Syrah is a much different beast to that of twenty years ago. Thank the wine gods for the evolution of style, it's allowed for great wines like this to come into existence.

Hamish Young has got a good eye for fruit. For this fresh, nouveau take on Syrah, he sourced from a vineyard he describes as "Possibly the warmest, hungriest site in Canberra." It was fermented as 100% whole berries for max aromatics, cold soaked for a week, fermented for two weeks, then pressed to a combination of ceramic egg and a French puncheon.

There's also a dash of Grenache and Mataro thrown in for a little extra 'pop'. This is a highly perfumed, exuberant style of Syrah, which is reliant on impeccable fruit for its appeal, not oak. If you love the trend towards medium-bodied, youthful reds, this is going to be right up your alley.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine.
