2018 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 wine, 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.
Lovers of Luke's wines and/or cool climate Shiraz should back up the truck.Read more about 2018 Luke Lambert Crudo Shiraz
2016 Longhop Shiraz
This is the perfect cellar-saving Shiraz from Dom Torzi and Tim Freeland.
The fruit is ripe, the winemaking is right on point, the desired end result of a big, luscious gluggable red that won't bust the bank well and truly realised.
This release received 92 points from The Wine Front's Gary Walsh.
If you're in the market for a hearty Shiraz that won't hurt the hip pocket, here's your guy.Read more about 2016 Longhop Shiraz
2018 Battle of Bosworth Puritan Shiraz
Preservative free wines are very sought after at the moment.
The problem is that many of them invariably end up disappointing. Sure, you want no preservatives but you also you something that is delicious to drink, right? That's where The Puritan comes in.
Battle of Bosworth have modelled this wine off the famous unoaked styles of Tempranillo from Rioja in Spain and according to Gary Walsh "They make a very good fist of this style at BoB.".
It's a fresher style of McLaren Vale Shiraz with high drinkability. It's delicious.Read more about 2018 Battle of Bosworth Puritan Shiraz
2019 Dormilona Tinto
Jo Perry continues her quest to make exciting, organically farmed, naturally made Margaret River wines, and this is a terrific introduction.
Don't be fooled by the name 'Tinto' - this is Margaret River Shiraz, but not like we know it...
Margaret River Shiraz has at times struggled for its own identity, but this is a style we love to see. Somewhat of a 'nouveau' release, it's medium-bodied at most, full of vibrant fruit and spice and good, firm structure.
100% whole bunch, 100% whole berry ferment, 100% deliciousness.
It's interesting, it's approachable, it's colourful, it's a bit of a no-brainer to be honest.Read more about 2019 Dormilona Tinto
2018 Mallaluka Shiraz Sangiovese
Here's a fun-loving easy-drinking, sloshy, slurpy red from all-round good dude, Sam Leyshon at Mallaluka.
Shiraz and Sangiovese aren't classic dance partners but they get along pretty well in this wine. Warm climate Sangiovese from Gundagai meets cool-climate spicy Shiraz from the Canberra District.
It's medium bodied, supple and silky smooth to drink. Not a complex 'thinking wine' but guaranteed to be one of the first bottles finished at your next BBQ.Read more about 2018 Mallaluka Shiraz Sangiovese
2017 Woods Crampton Barossa Shiraz
Yet again the Woods Crampton Barossa Valley Shiraz shapes as one of the year's true wine bargains. Shiraz lovers eat your hearts out.
The style of this wine is best summed up by the Woods Crampton boys themselves: "A modern, fruit driven Barossa Shiraz with a focus on drinkability. A world away from the over-extracted and over the top styles loved by the Americans. Cool Climate Barossa Shiraz?"
If you're a fan of this quintessential Aussie wine style, this is quite simply one of the best value Shiraz in The Barossa Valley.Read more about 2017 Woods Crampton Barossa Shiraz
