2019 Dominique Piron Beaujolais-Villages
"It’s just a really good drink, and very accessible."
- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
This top value little Gamay comes from a family with over four centuries of history in the Beaujolais region.
Fourteen generations of Pirons have grown and made wine in the area, with the latest, Dominique Piron, having a 40 year legacy of producing top-flight wines from the most iconic Crus.
Le Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France dubbed him, "one of the architects of the revival of Morgon, tackling with boundless energy the expression of wines of terroir, vinified in the pure tradition of Beaujolais....”. If you're going to try an entry level Beaujolais, there is really no better place to start.
This is light, crunchy and utterly smashable. The perfect light-bodied red to knock a slight chill into a while away an afternoon.Read more about 2019 Dominique Piron Beaujolais-Villages
2018 Maretti Langhe Nebbiolo
For lovers of affordable Italian table wines, the Maretti wines, crafted by the winemaker Danilo Drocco, have been some of the best buying on Australian shores for years now.
The Langhe Nebbiolo adds another delicious string to their bow. The fruit is macerated for only a short time before being pressed off to barrel. The intent here is to deliver a Piemontese Nebbiolo that is ready to drink now. Drocco has been very successful.
The tannins are super fine and moreish, the fruit is bright, energetic and has the signature rusty colour that you might associate with very traditional examples of Nebbiolo from this region.
This is one of the best value Italian Nebbiolos you will find this year.Read more about 2018 Maretti Langhe Nebbiolo

The is all blueberry and violets with sweet cocoa and a hint of spice. Classic velvet Malbec tannin and a fresh finish that will keep you coming back for more.

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
2020 Torzi Matthews Mystic Park Shiraz
Single vineyard wine from the cool Springton area of the Eden Valley that is deliciously aromatic, with flavours of black cherry and dark herbal tea, with a gratifying finish.
Lighter in fruit profile and palate weight than the its Schist Rock brother, this is nonetheless a deeply enjoyable bottle of Shiraz, particularly at the price point.Read more about 2020 Torzi Matthews Mystic Park Shiraz
