2019 Vinden Headcase Semillon
The Somerset vineyard produces some of the Hunter's most famous Semillons.
Angus Vinden has his hands on a good parcel of fruit from this great site and he's turning out some beautiful wines from it.
It's razor sharp but with a little more generosity than you usually see in the Hunter.
Hunter Semillon die-hards, here's one of the cellar from a young gun of the region on the up and up.Read more about 2019 Vinden Headcase Semillon
2019 Ricca Terra Vintners Grenache Blanc
Here's a real surprise packet from vintner Ashley Ratcliff.
Grenache Blanc is just beginning to make an appearance in Australia. Of the few examples popping up around the country currently, this is the most outstanding we have seen so far.
It's a white wine with beautiful weight and texture. A lick of saline minerality, some cool white stone fruits, sliced pears - it's somewhere in the Chablis-esque/Muscadet sort of direction, if you are looking for a point of reference.
We loved this wine. It's brilliant value and we highly recommend it if you're looking to discover something new.Read more about 2019 Ricca Terra Vintners Grenache Blanc
2018 Si Vintners Bella Chardonnay
Bella is a brilliant modern expression of Chardonnay from Margaret River.
Organically grown and made by the hands Iwo and Sarah, this takes the power of Margaret River Chardonnay and tucks it into a finer frame. It's made with next to no tinkering in the winery, the fruit left to ferment in varying vessels and hang out on gross lees for a period to pick up extra texture and palate weight.
Mike Bennie scored this new release 96 points and noted that while it's a finer-boned expression of Chardonnay from this part of the world, it's an exceptional one.Read more about 2018 Si Vintners Bella Chardonnay
2019 Golden Child Lazy Sunday Light Red
This is one of the most gluggable light and breezy red wines you are likely to come across.
Here, Pinot Noir and Shiraz from James Hamilton's family vineyard in Adelaide Hills, combine forces into a red with unstoppable drinkability. The sweet red fruits of the Pinot, the lovely plump mid-palate of the Shiraz, it's such a winning combination.
Looking for something red to knock back in tumblers on your next picnic?
The Lazy Sunday is your winner.Read more about 2019 Golden Child Lazy Sunday Light Red
2018 Domaine de Ferrand Cotes du Rhone Mistral
Philippe Bravay is one of the finest small-scale artisan producers in the famed Chateauneuf du Pape sub-region of the Southern Rhone.
With organic farming underpinning his whole operation, Philippe has amassed a huge cult following for his pure, unadulterated expressions of Grenache and Grenache blends from Chateauneuf and Cotes du Rhone.
The Cotes du Rhone is bright and open for business. You can see the level of care taken in producing even Philippe's 'entry level' offering.
The vines that produce this wine were planted as far back as 1945 and offer a level of depth and complexity you rarely fine in reds from the Cotes du Rhone.
Grenache and GSM lovers, gon't hesitate.Read more about 2018 Domaine de Ferrand Cotes du Rhone Mistral
2019 Lambert Wines Syrah
The Luke Lambert Syrah is always made with a deft touch.
Luke's choice of vineyard in the South-West of the Yarra Valley (some of the coolest terrain in the region) offers him the opportunity to make a wine of unique elegance and finesse.
The continued success of this wine has cemented Luke as one of the true winemaking craftsman of his generation. Luke uses whole bunches to beautiful effect, elevating Yarra Valley Syrah to a spicy, ethereal wine with a quiet confidence.
Once again, this release is beautifully balanced, refined and pure-fruited - all the hallmarks of Luke's signature Syrah style.Read more about 2019 Lambert Wines Syrah
