    It’s business as usual for Gregory Perez’s entry-level Mencía, which again offers crazy value. Juicy and tangy, this is just a glass of deliciousness with loads of racy, cherry, peppery fruits. Think of quality Beaujolais villages but with more interest, and you’ll be coming close. This comes from multiple parcels of 30-60-year-old vines dotted around […]

    $34.00 $29.00in 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. […]

    $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 […]

    Albino Rocca Dolcetto d’Alba 2018

    $36.00in any six

    $40.00 per single bottle

    Albino Rocca’s Dolcetto d’Alba is drawn from a single vineyard in Barbaresco, a very serious location with a first-rate, east to south-east exposure for the most part. The vines are 30-40 years old, and thanks to their maturity and the sensible yields they offer, this wine displays more intensity and texture than many a garden-variety […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    $44.00 per single bottle

    2019 La Petite Mort Amphora Saperavi is a different beast entirely. Destemmed, whole berries are placed in Amphorae and left to do their thing for 193 days. Incredible really. Although the wine has plenty of colour, it’s not impenetrable and the tannins are lovely. Chewier than the Shiraz Viognier, but silky nonetheless. Full-ish body and […]

    $40.00 $34.00in any six

    $46.00 per single bottle

    Cavallotto’s single vineyard Dolcetto D’Alba Vigna Scot DOC 2016 hails from 2.3 hectares of 30 year-old vines located within Castiglione Falletto’s legendary Monprivato cru. These Dolcetto vines face east, meaning it is cooler and later ripening. On these great soils, the mature vines, low yields and traditional winemaking result in a layered, deep and remarkably […]

    The 2018 MRVD is a brand new wine from Maxime Francois Laurent, son of Michelle Laurent, founder of Domaine Gramenon. 100% Mourvedre. As usual the first thing you notice is the glorious vibrant purple/crimson colour. Aromas of cassis, rocks, hearth, licorice and garrigue waft out of the glass in perfume. It’s got great proportion, like […]

    $122.00 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 […]

    “Treinspoor comes from a vineyard close to the railway line on the Darling side of the Swartland. It was especially crucial to get the picking date right in 2018, according to Paul Jordaan, but he and Eben Sadie nailed it. Showing the classic grip and square-jawed gruffness of Tinta Barocca, but with intense, savoury damson […]

    “Dry farmed on the schist soils of the Kasteelberg, this is the latest in a run of superb Cinsaults from Eben Sadie. The vines are between 40 and 50 years’ old, producing a delicate yet energetic and intense wine with some whole bunch spices and structure, raspberry and red cherry fruit and lacy, detailed tannins.” […]
