2018 Arfion Spring Pinot Noir
Dave Macintosh loves his Pinot Noir in all shades and colours. The thirst for a young, vibrant 'nouveau' style drove him to release this, the Spring Pinot Noir.
For insane drinkability in a Pinot Noir, that's loaded with character, this is one of the tastiest of its style getting around.
It does the job Dave wanted - its irresistible from first sip.
A bouncy Pinot Noir brimming with jubilant fruit, this will keep you coming back for more and more and more.
Knock a slight chill into it and guzzle with abandon.Read more about 2018 Arfion Spring Pinot Noir
2018 Oakridge LVS Meunier
Pinot Meunier can be a charming grape when handled well. The lesser known Champagne variety is a mutation of Pinot Noir, sharing many of the same characteristics its predecessor is famous for.
This is a light-medium bodied wine which is immensely likeable. Think of it as Pinot Noir with some attitude.
Dave Bicknell only makes this in only very small quantities, but if you are a fan of this slightly obscure variety, this is surely one of the best pound-for-pound versions in the country.Read more about 2018 Oakridge LVS Meunier
2018 Spinifex Papillon
Introducing Papillon - one of the most gluggable reds in the Barossa Valley!
The Spinifex wines cover a wide spectrum, from rich, full-throttled old vine Shiraz all the way to this, a light bodied, energetic Grenache Cinsault blend made for easy day-time drinking.
These styles are certainly in vogue but as usual, winemaking wizard Schell elevates it to another level, utilising incredibly old vines and astute winemaking to add depth and complexity to what is joyously pure red berried fruit.
Papillon is one of our go-to's and just unbeatable value. What a producer Spinifex is.Read more about 2018 Spinifex Papillon
2017 Adelina Eternal Return Nebbiolo Barbera Dolcetto
The colourful tapestry of the Adelina range finds a new colour here with the addition of an Italian-styled table wine built for pizzas and good times.
The three varieties; Nebbiolo (60%), Barbera (20%), and Dolcetto (20%) get along famously in this wine.
It's light, fresh and filled with the savoury tannin and spice that you'd expect from these quintessential Italian varieties.
The kicker is the sweet, crunchy fruit at the core which makes this so drinkable any night of the week. Another great release from a SA brand that is constantly in evolution.Read more about 2017 Adelina Eternal Return Nebbiolo Barbera Dolcetto
2018 Ravensworth Hilltops Barbera
Bryan Martin's Hilltops Barbera is a picture perfect example of an Aussie take on this Italian stalwart variety..
The Italian variety finds a happy groove amongst the Ravensworth range. The easy approachability as a fresh young wine, the lack of need for additions, the balance of fruit and savoury characters that Italian varieties offer all suits Bryan's winemaking down to a tee.
Perfectly ripe, delicious red fruit and a lovely lick of chewy tannin make this one of the most versatile wines we've seen in a while. Anytime, anywhere. If you're looking for something to take to your next dinner party, this would be a great choice.Read more about 2018 Ravensworth Hilltops Barbera
2017 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.
Put simply, if you like McLaren Vale Shiraz with a fresh face - this is a must buy.Read more about 2017 Bondar Wines Violet Hour Shiraz
