2019 Combes Willow Lake Pinot Noir

"It’s a bloody ripper."
Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Willow Lake vineyard has become a happy hunting ground for younger generation producers in the Yarra Valley looking for quality fruit from the Upper Yarra.

In 2019, Oscar Hermann got his hands on a small parcel of Willow Lake Pinot and he's made it absolutely sing.

This is a silky, seductive red which is light in frame but huge in impact. It's a soft, feathery pillow of sweet cherry and strawberry fruit with a fine rasp of whole-bunch derived tannin that draws long through the finish.

It's fantastic driking and brilliant value given the demand for high quality Yarra Pinot such as this.

Dive in.

2019 Dune Tirari

Dune is one of the most interesting and exciting new arrivals onto the McLaren Vale scene, and this is another smash hit from the Lloyd brothers.

It's a unique blend of Touriga, Grenache, Negroamaro, Mourvedre and a dash of Shiraz adding some richness and rustic McLaren Vale character. 

This is Medium bodied, juicy and savoury - the perfect pizza red!

The synergy of these varieties is a real surprise packet.

2019 Head Old Vine Grenache

The Old Vine Grenache is one of Alex's specialities and arguably one of the first and most important Grenache wines of the modern era to inspire the flood of more refined Grenache we see emerging across Australia today.

The fruit from this 160-year-old vineyard gets full opportunity to show its true character. An extraordinary wine for its price. It shows a rare restraint in the use of oak. It's all about the fruit, and with fruit this beautiful, by Jove, it should be!

An excellent contemporary example of Australia's world-class Grenache capabilities. This is an excellent release.

2018 Benevelli Piero Langhe Nebbiolo

"Excellent value."
- James Suckling

The demand for the wines of Andrea Cortonesi has gone through the roof in recent years.

A string of great reviews and limited production across both the Rosso and his exemplary Brunello has seen his wine sell out in short order.

He sources only a small amount of fruit from a vineyard owned by a good friend in northern Montalcino. He makes his wines in a traditional fashion with firm but moreish tannin as a feature.

The Rosso is 100% Sangiovese from younger vines off the property. It carries ample fruit but finishes dry and savoury - it's classic Tuscan Sangiovese for a steal.

2018 Duke's Vineyard Magpie Hill Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

"The price rendered me speechless."
- James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

Duke's Vineyard is a retirement project-turned-obsession of Duke and Hilde Ranson.

Cabernet is Duke's passion. He planted his first vines of Cabernet it in the foothils of the Porongurups back in 1999. Today, it's absolutely flourishing.

This shows an immense depth and concentration for a WA Cabernet of this price. It's thick set with fruit, framed by beautifully detailed tannin and ready to be consumed either now or in several decades time.

James Halliday awarded it a mammoth 98 points, making it the best value Cabernet in Australia, in his esteemed opinion.

2019 Trutta Wines Harcourt North Shiraz

"This is such a great drink each year. Real pleasure. Real quality. Real good."
Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Winemaker Jake Winther is championing unsung sustainably and organically-farmed vineyards across Central Victoria and doing a very good job of it.

This Shiraz comes from an organically-managed vineyard high up on a hill in the Bendigo region. Winther ferments it as whole clusters, stems and all, to get a fragrant, spicy Shiraz that's more in the medium-bodied end of the Shiraz gene pool.

It's a fresher, more elegant Shiraz wine that's smashable yet complex enough to warrant your best stemware.

Top value on offer here. Quality, style and slurpablity all rolled into one.
