KÜHL GRUNER VELTLINER 2017
Crunchy, spicy, aromatic, even grainy; this wine can be appreciated from a number of different angles but it’s the body, the flow and the sheer confidence it exudes that really sets it apart. This is a white wine of real presence. All things considered, the price is a steal. 95 POINTS

YAKKA SHIRAZ 2016
You can’t help but admire the integration of sweet, sawdusty French oak with black cherried fruit and assorted spices and woody herbs. Plum flavours add yet more flesh to sink into; smoke notes a bit of fantasy; velvety texture the cushion on which it’s all propped. It’s a wonderful red to settle in with. 95 POINTS

NEBBIOLO RISERVA 2015
As serious as it is impressive. There’s plenty of strut to this release, its flavours of black cherry, rose petals, orange peel, leather and anise raked firmly with dry, herb-flecked tannin. It throws aroma, it throws flavour, it throws dry length aplenty. This is a nebbiolo to be reckoned with. 95 POINTS

‘THE PIECE’ SHIRAZ 2015
Powerhouse red. Rich, meaty, perfumed, lashed with oak, dashed with sweet spice. Adelaide Hills shiraz with the lot. Tannin is fine, infused with coffee, and in control. It’s a red to be reckoned with, and it’s going to mature - quite gloriously - over a long period. 96 POINTS
