    Songs from Mars The Shoe Nero d’Avola 2019

    $34.00in any six

    $38.00 per single bottle

    This Nero is great – part of the fruit was affected by frost so it became dehydrated and concentrated. The other half was pristine so while it has a super ripe varietal nose, the palate is balanced and savoury with heaps of acid. It’s very, very good chilled! Half whole bunch, half de-stemmed. From Greenock. […]

    $34.00in any six

    $40.00 per single bottle

    Delicious! Ballistically so. Sluice of sweet cherry, red vermouth-like characters, minty notes and floral things. Has amazingly fresh and frisky acidity, some slick and pull to tannins, juiciness then a squeaky finish with loads of spice and a touch of smoky-slatey minerality. So much deliciousness. Moreish, amazing thing. 94 points – Mike Bennie, The Winefront […]

    Fruit sourced from Tim Fechner’s property, just north of Angaston. Stewed plum, orange peel, bay leaves, liquorice straps and amaro (vecchio amaro del capo – personal favourite) is pretty predominant on the nose. Round and plush mouthfeel upfront, with the characters from the nose carrying through to the palate, to fine grained/tightly woven tannin centred […]

    This Primitivo by Angelo Rocca has an intense ruby red colour with violet tints. On the nose the perfume is concentrated, characteristic of ripened grapes with a hint of cherries. The palate is dry, solid yet deliciously velvety. Click here for our full Italian range

    $133.00 per single bottle

    Picked slightly riper than usual in 2019, Pofadder also benefited from a decent crop compared with some of the Old Vine Series parcels. Plusher and darker than the 2018 was at this stage, with more grip and flavours of bramble and black cherry, this is a serious, sinewy Cinsault with a nip of tannins. “A […]

    $100.00in any six

    $110.00 per single bottle

    Translucent red colour with clear edges. A distinctly fragrant nose of rose petals, musk, red and black cherries. So much to love. Time open does it no harm. An earthy, anchoring note ticks in with several swirls of the glass – dried herbs and aniseed. Ethereal and haunting, red fruits continue to unfurl, with acidity […]

    $120.00in any six

    $133.00 per single bottle

    Treinspoor comes from a vineyard close to the railway line on the Darling side of the Swartland. “The greatest grape for the Swartland,” says Eben Sadie of Tinta Barocca, unconcerned that no one seems to agree with him. Treinspoor can be hard to like in its youth, but not in 2019. Yes, it has grunt […]

    $34.00 per single bottle

    Raspberry, black pepper, dried oregano and tobacco leaf make Massena’s Primitivo atypical for the Barossa climate with its high end aromatics. The sweet, soft and round tannin palate bring back the familiarity of this warm climate and early released wine. Flavours of bright red fruits, wild herbs and bright acidity. Primitivo from dry grown vines […]

    $48.00in any six

    $52.00 per single bottle

    This wine comes from the village of Cobrana in the north east of Bierzo. It is Mencia but with a little palmino and godello as the vineyards were traditionally planted with some white grapes in the past. The reason why Veronica has started to work with this vineyard is because it is planted straight into […]

    Game changer. There are not many wines that can redefine our perception of a wine region. Especially something as iconic and solid as Rutherglen Durif. Scion’s 2016 Durif is just one of those wines, and in the best possible sense.  Elegant, pure and fresh. Makes you wonder why no one from the Rutherglen had made […]

    $31.00in any six

    $35.00 per single bottle

    The Mob Montepulciano 2017 is a deep, inky purple. Full of dark cherries and blackberries supported by a spine of fine, savoury tannins, low in acidity but highly aromatic. The wine’s richness and juicy fruit is clearly Barossa, but in this savoury profile there’s more than a nod to the food-friendly style of Italy. Notes […]

    The percentage of Syrah decreases every year – it was once 80% and is now closer to 45% – allowing Eben Sadie to play with other Mediterranean grapes, namely Mourvèdre, Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault and Tinta Barocca. Remarkably well balanced and refined given the heat and dryness of the vintage, this is a scented, floral, nuanced […]

    $63.00 per single bottle

    The 2017 VO Versión Original is an old-vine Mencía from the same vineyards where Ortega gets the grapes for ROC, but these vines are in the lower part where there’s more sand and deeper soils, which tends to produce more concentrated wine. The full clusters fermented with indigenous yeasts, and the wine matured in a […]

    $48.00 per single bottle

    Sandrone’s Dolcetto is without doubt one of the very finest examples of the region. The consistent quality of this wine – its purity, silky texture, fine tannins and balance – can only come with perfectly ripe fruit from top sites. In this case the sites are also high altitude, which brings added freshness to the […]

    The 2020 La Petite Mort Amphora Saperavi is crafted from destemmed, whole berries placed in Amphorae and left to do their thing for almost 6 months. The resulting wine is chewier than the Shiraz Viognier, but silky nonetheless. Full-ish body and very complex. Black cherry and red, black pepper, cassis, kirsch, dark chocolate, dried flowers […]

Proudly Ricca Terra Farms Riverland fruit that shows off its warm flavours much like France’s Corbieres. Crushed red berries, rosemary, sage, floral notes and a lovely fleshy mouth feel. Medium to full bodied palate with blackberry, cherry […]
