2018 Rippon 'Rippon' Riesling

"Magnificent wine, so complex, so intense... You drink it and you know you are drinking greatness. Epic wine."
- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)


This is an excellent example of how to build texture in Riesling.

Winemaker and grape grower Nick Mills holds this wine back for a minimum of a year before releasing it to market. It's made from the mature vines on the Rippon vineyard, harnessing the power of this fruit takes a little extra time.

The wine spends a day or two on skins and 100 days on lees before going to bottle. Nothing is hurried at Rippon and the mesmerising complexity of this wine on release is a testament to Nick's patience.

It's a wine which looks better every year in bottle.

A wine of blistering power and stunning detail, Riesling enthusiasts, you'll be very happy to have this as part of your collection.

2017 Clemens Busch Marienburg 1er GG

"It feels outstanding to sip on, and so delicious."
- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)


Clemens Busch is the fifth generation of Busch men to farm their family's vineyards along the Mosel.

The man is an iconoclast, a renegade, and arguably the best 'natural' producer of fine wines in the region.

A man well ahead of the curve, Clemens began converting his vineyards to organics in 1984. He now has each site certified biodynamic and is producing powerful Rieslings with no additions save the minimum amount of effective sulphur.

The Grosses Gewächs wines are the best examples of dry Mosel that Clemens produces. Insanely intense and with phenomenal drive, these world-class wines hail from excellent vineyards.

The Marienburg 1er GG is from 40 year old vines planted on a grey slate section of the vineyard. It shows ripe citrus and blistering acidity - a stellar example of dry Mosel that will cellar for decades to come.

2018 Mount Mary Triolet

The Mount Mary Triolet is a wine inspired by the great white blends of Bordeaux.

The vineyard is planted to 75% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Semillon and 5% Muscadelle. Each variety is picked at perfect ripeness, then vinified in essentially the same way as their Chardonnay with 100% barrel ferment (in mostly older oak), some solids from firm pressing and lees stirring employed over the 11 months it rests in barrel before bottling.

The 2018 Triolet is a tightly wound, beautifully balanced example of this cult favourite wine, showing the restraint and finesse that is typical of the best Triolets. The ideal season in the Yarra allowing plenty of flavour development and pristine acidity through the wine.

This is a top example of why this is considered one of the country's finest examples of the Bordeaux Blanc style.

2018 Luis Seabra Xisto Cru Branco

"No denying pedigree from scent, flavour, texture... Unreal wine."
- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)


This is the top white wine in the Seabra stable.

It's a phenomenal wine. Seabra believes that the main variety in this blend, Rabigato, is the perfect vessel to convey the distinctive characteristics of this unique vineyard.

The vines are 70 - 80 years old. The farming is all chemical-free. The wine is made with purity at the front of mind.

It's difficult to convey the power and peristence of the Xisto Cru. It feels like you are drinking a freight-train of minerals, stones and waxy/honeyed stonefruits. There is only a very small amount available in Australia. It won't last long. And rightfully so, it's absolutely brilliant.

2018 Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Blanc

Benjamin Leroux's Bourgogne Blanc is sourced from his vineyard holdings in Meursault.

This is a very high level of quality to be labelled under the banner of Bourgogne. The level of care and attention to detail undertaken by Leroux in crafting this cuveé is not dissimilar to the way he treats his 1er and Grand Cru offerings.

The wine is matured in large oval-shaped vats and left quietly to rest on lees and gather texture over the winter.

This is a Chardonnay with great  depth and structure, and one of the best possible places to start if you're wandering into the wonderful land of white Burgundy.

2019 By Farr G.C. Chardonnay

A formidable wine here from a classic producer and now regarded as one of Australia's best Chardonnay wines. The Farrs sum up this stunning wine best themselves:

"The GC Chardonnay (GC – Gary Charles) is attributed to all the knowledge we have been able to extract from Gary to create a close planted / high density planting of chardonnay on an exposed cote... It's a complete chardonnay."

It's a powerful Chardonnay that makes you sit back and take notice. Full of fruit and body and personality.

A brilliant wine and a rare gem, perfect either for the cellar and/or a special occasion.

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.
