2018 Turon Pinot Noir

Turon White is one of the rising stars of the Adelaide Hills. 

This is his earlier-drinking Pinot Noir. Half of the grapes were fermented as whole bunches giving the wine a lightness and freshness. You see the freshly picked green herb character meshed to poached strawberries and crunchy acidity.

It's the perfect picnic Pinot. As James Halliday said, "The silky mouthfeel and overall balance is faultless."

For best drinking, pop this into the fridge for a minute or two before cracking. Then guzzle with abandon.

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 Bondar Wines Junto GSM

In only a few short vintages this dynamic couple have carved out a niche for their eponymous label as one of the most exciting and in demand wineries in McLaren Vale.

Drinkability is writ large across the range. The 'Junto' (Spanish for 'together') is a wine made for easily enjoying with friends and family. The 2018 may be the best release of this wine to date.

The Grenache component a much less than in previous years (70%), the power of the 2018 vintage bringing a richer, more silky wine to bottle on release. This is as delicious as medium-bodied reds get from this part of the world.

Incredibly versatile and impossibly more-ish, Andre and Selina have done it again.

2017 Cullen Mangan Vineyard Red Moon

Vanya Cullen was named the 2020 Halliday Winemaker of the Year off the back of an incredible run of consistently outstanding releases.

This Mangan Vineyard red blend is indicative of the kind of quality that Vanya is producing at the moment.

The Mangan vineyard, farmed biodynamically, produces fruit with wonderful balance. The three varieties for this blend, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot, were picked on the 11th February as a full lunar eclipse occurred over the vineyard. Given the significance of the moon in biodynamic farming, that seemed like a good omen at the time.

The finished wine is a bright, polished, purple-fruited delight.

2016 Spinifex Bete Noir

Husband and wife team of Peter Schell and Magali Gely have extensive winemaking experience in the south of France, which proves the inspiration for their unique wines made from predominantly Rhone varietals.

Unlike most of Spinifex's wines, 'Bete Noir' is 100% varietal, in this case, Shiraz.

But unlike many big and bold Barossa Shiraz, with 30% of the fruit coming from the Barossa's cooler neighbour Eden Valley this wine has remarkable perfume, elegance and balance.

This has a distinctive 'old world' feel with the vibrancy of South Australian fruit. A wine with an impeccable track record for a true Shiraz connoisseur.

2017 Yangarra King's Wood Shiraz

The King's Wood Shiraz is one of the premium, small batch releases in the excellent Yangarra portfolio.

One of the best portions of the Yangarra vineyard was selected for this wine. There were 25% whole bunches used in the ferment, the fruit hand-picked and carefully double-sorted for quality control before being hand-plunged and left to rest in a huge oak cask before bottling.

Oak is well and truly in the background here. Winemaker Peter Fraser and team highlighting the quality and vibrancy of their fruit as the hero in this wine.

This is a pristine example of McLaren Vale Shiraz at its absolute best. Poised, polished and powerful, it's a beautiful wine with a long life ahead.

"It's impossible to find anything done or not done that would improve this superb wine..." - 99 points, James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)
