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.Read more about 2018 Garagiste Le Stagiaire Pinot Noir

2018 Bondar Wines Violet Hour Shiraz
The name 'Violet Hour' refers to the fading light owners Andre Bondar and Selina Kelly saw on the horizon as they picked the last bunches of Shiraz for their first ever release, the 2012 edition of this wine. A violet sky, a beautiful wine, and a new future ahead for the couple and their vines.
The Violet hour tastes as stylish as it looks, it hits that sweet-spot for all red wine lovers - a combination of elegance and power.
The pedigree of the McLaren Vale vineyard is second to none - it's one of the most respected sites in McLaren Vale where Seaview and Blewitt Springs meet. You get the lively, bright blue fruits of the sandy soils of Blewitt Springs with the power and structure of the Seaview terroir. It's a winning combination. The quality of the Shiraz speaks for itself.

2018 Dune Pyla
A new age McLaren Vale red wine here from the notable Lloyd family of Coriole fame. The brothers Duncan and Peter forging a new project from their Blewitt Springs vineyard.

The 2018 release is every bit as alluring as the ripping 2017 vintage - it's savoury, spicy and full of lush McLaren Vale dark fruit.

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.Read more about 2018 Beal & Co Little Red
2019 Luke Lambert Crudo Shiraz
Luke Lambert's 'entry level' Crudo Shiraz is terrific value for money.
Luke is one of the modern superstars of the Yarra Valley. If you want to get to know his house style, this is the perfect place to start.
Luke makes this in a style which is more approachable in its youth than the exceptional, collectable Luke Lambert Syrah. A Yarra Valley Shiraz with drinkability as the focal point, it shows all the perfume, freshness and spice that makes Luke's Shiraz/Syrah so unique. The Crudo is ready to go now. It's delicious.
On the 2019 rendition, Luke says, "We are trying to build more muscle from the whole bunches and crushing the whole bunch berries: i.e., less cab-mac, and more extraction from the skins and stalks."
Lovers of Luke's wines and/or cool climate Shiraz should back up the truck.Read more about 2019 Luke Lambert Crudo Shiraz
