2015 Clos Clare Riesling RRP $51
Touch of fenugreek-like stink, apple, sweet herbs, tangelo, peach and grapefruit. Big burst of flavour, juicy with grapefruit, but dry and gently chalky too. Has some citrus peel bitterness on the finish, almost like Chinotto, or similar. No shortage of personality. Very entertaining. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front 2015

2013 Chalmers Aglianico RRP $48
The balanced, savoury palate shows subtle fruitcake spices, tobacco, leather, herbal notes and candied orange rind with a pleasant mouth-watering acidity and the fine, smooth, building tannins you would expect of the variety. An elegant and structured medium weight wine which, although it has already been cellared before release, still has excellent potential for long ageing. – Chalmers 

2015 Dalwhinnie Moonambel Shiraz RRP $96
Dalwhinnie seldom misses the target, and certainly didn’t in ’15. This has Rolls Royce power, with no need to flaunt it. Black fruits of all descriptions have a (fruit) sweet edge that is quite delicious, the mouthfeel supple the palate of effortless length, French oak just a cog in the engine. 96 Points. James Halliday, The Wine Companion

2017 Holyman Pinot Noir RRP $107
If the wine didn’t come from Tasmania, you’d be transfixed by its vivid hue and clarity, likewise the brightness and purity of its aromas and flavours, built within a citadel of dark cherry and satsuma plum, the certainty of spices and flowers around the corner. A very, very seductive pinot. 96 points. James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021

2013 TWR Single Vineyard Pinot Noir RRP $91
It has an enchantingly bright and perfumed nose with violet-like florals, sweet baking spices and beautifully pure red cherry fruits. The palate has impressive structure and textural complexity, the tannins swirl, the acidity shines and the fruit flavours in the red cherry and redcurrant spectrum run deep, long and deceptively powerful. 96 points.
