Roche Mazet Pays d’Oc Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Roche Mazet is the home of some incredible bargain French wines, and this Cabernet is another standout. Made in the Pay d’Oc region – aka the home of France’s best value wines – the Roche Mazet wines show delicious bright fruit, yet still with French charisma and savouriness. Smooth, round and so easy to drink, this gold medal winning red is exactly what you’d want in an everyday French red.
Le Tufare Nero d’Avola Shiraz 2019
Personality and body mark this union between nero d’Avola and Syrah. Bursting with delicious notes of plum, red fruits and spices, it is perfect with tasty pasta dishes, grilled meats and hard cheeses.
Miles from Nowhere Cabernet Merlot 2019
A lifted bouquet of dark plums and red berries are combined with herbaceous leafy, nutmeg, dark chocolate and cedar oak. Mouth filling flavours of ripe dark plums and sweet blackberries are balanced with nutmeg and vanilla spice. Silky smooth, yet firm tannins add great length to the finish of this medium bodied wine.
Kirrihill Winemakers Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
The 2016 Winemaker selection Cabernet Sauvignon is deep red with a vibrant purple hue. It has bright aromas of rich blackcurrant with a touch of cassis and violets. The tannins are are fine and elegant giving the wine length
Tahbilk One Million Cuttings Shiraz 2018
Purple fruit, some earthy notes and a nice mid palate roundness to it. Really tastes like Tahbilk Shiraz

Thomas Goss Merlot 2018
Bright red and perfumed on the nose. Spicy palate, palate is enjoyable and nice tannins. Solid wine and nice sweetness.

Hewitson Private Cellar Barossa Grenache 2018
From a single plot of century-old, dry-grown bush vines in Rowland Flat. This has a lilting, rose-like floral nose with pomegranate and orange-peel notes across fresh raspberries and red cherries. So strikingly pure and delicate. The palate has very attractive, granular tannins that carry long, supple and smooth on the palate. Super long with pure red-fruit flavor. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Yarran Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
We have worked with Yarran consistantly for a while now. And their constant has been their quaffing range that has satisfied over the years. Good helping of fruit, nice structure, and a good lick of tannins. Best paired with a night on the couch with a pizza after a long day
Peos Estate Four Jacks Shiraz 2018
Gorgeously ripe and satisfying, the wine offers sweet blackberry, blueberry, anise and violet aromas on the nose, followed by a richly expressed palate that is filled with succulent fruit flavours together with silky texture and supple tannins. Beautifully rounded and highly enjoyable.

Terre a Terre Crayères Vineyard Shiraz 2015
The 2015 vintage of this wine shows bright blackberry and juicy plum flavours, whilst the palate is very earthy with gorgeous supple and lingering tannins.
Heirloom Alcala McLaren Vale Grenache 2019
Pleasant grenache, but does have some slightly jammy notes more similar to the Barossa Valley than McLaren Vale. Traditional style.
