2021 Riposte The Dagger Pinot Noir

How Tim Knappstein manages to make such astonishing wines at bargain prices is one of South Australia's greatest mysteries - but who are we to question when we all get to reap the benefit.

His 'The Dagger' Pinot Noir is bright, bouncy, and full of life. Great everyday-drinking Pinot and made with such finesse. Fresh cherries and berries wrapped in spice, with a juiciness that goes for days.

If you ask us, it's an absolute steal and one of the country's best value Pinots. A real no brainer here - great buying.

2021 Dominique Piron Beaujolais-Villages

If you're going to try an entry level Beaujolais, there is really no better place to start. Every year Dominique Piron turns out our favourite inexpensive Gamay that we can't wait to put in front of people.

This is light, crunchy and utterly smashable. The perfect light-bodied red to knock a slight chill into a while away an afternoon.

Old vines, natural freshness, delicious drinking.

2021 S.C. Pannell National Touriga

This wine is a brand new addition to the S.C. Pannell range and without doubt one of his most unique.

Pannell firmly believes that the Portugese grape of Touriga Nacional has a big future in McLaren Vale. This expression is a wine of perfectly balanced juxtaposition - ripe yet fresh, dry but refreshing. Think all things purple for this one - violet and plums, but with a delectable dose of spice too.

If you haven't tried a Touriga before you're in for a treat - this is just fantastic. A pleasure to drink!

2021 Olivier Riviere Rioja Tinto Rayos Uva

This is the early-drinking rendition of Rioja blend from Bordeaux-born vigneron, Olivier Riviere.

The focal point of this wine is Graciano - with its intensely spicy backbone and fine tannin it sets an exotic backdrop for the rest of the blend.

Tempranillo and Grenache bring the flesh and fruit to the wine, with a flood of red berries and juicy plums. It makes for a great afternoon partner with a tumble in front of a board of hard cheese and cured meats.

Super value here, fun and exciting drinking from Rioja new guard.

2019 Giant Steps Yarra Valley Syrah Carignan Grenache

There is plenty of Shiraz in the Yarra Valley but not too much Grenache and Carignan, two other popular varieties that often feature in Mediterranean red blends.

Giant Steps do have a little of all three of these varieties planted on their Sexton and Tarraford vineyards, and they lend this mid-weight, early-drinking red some real spiciness and herbal interest. The 2019 version of this wine won a Trophy at the 2021 Royal Melbourne Wine Show and was rated 95 points from Jane Faulkner at the Halliday Wine Companion.

It's both superbly lithe and eminently drinkable, this would be excellent value house red fit for all occasions.

2018 Moondarra Old School Nebbiolo

The Old School Nebbiolo from Moondarra sees similar treatment to their Pinot Noirs, with skin maceration, a third whole bunches and a whole lot of love to extract colour and flavour.

It even gets a dose of specially chosen Pinot Noir to help the fermenting along.

The final wine is a smooth, harmoniously balanced and dry red wine, with hallmark flavours of Nebb - structured tannin, subtle notes of tobacco and filled with sour cherries, strawberries and earthy notes. Rustic and charming.

    Very decent mixed dozen

    Highlight was the Alma Negra Tinto, which I've had to order again individually for $40. So great value overall.

    An eclectic and delicious selection of wine.

    I have not tried every bottle in the 6 pack as yet. So far I have enjoyed the four I have tried as they are very drinkable and interesting. I particularly enjoy being offered wines I would not normally sample. In fact I look forward to trying the next bottle in the selection. The Inkwell Primitivo and the La Posta Malbec are both new territory for me in that they are quite different, in a good way, from other Primotivo and Malbec I have come across. Keep it coming I say.

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
