    This is definitely a Grenache-driven GSM! Subtle toasty oak and caramel lead to a deep-fruited, dark cherry and strawberry palate with hints of aniseed and turkish delight. Gentle refreshing acidity gives great line and drives the brooding and delicious fruit through to a lingering finish. The majority of the Grenache is from an old cool Williamstown vineyard on the border of the Adelaide Hills. Blended with Grenache from a special Krondorf Road vineyard. Early harvest Syrah is from a 69 year old Ebenezer vineyard and from the Heinrich vineyard in the Lyndoch foothills, which unites with the lovely blue-fruit characters of Syrah from a small Northern Eden Valley vineyard on the outskirts of Angaston. The remaining 4% is a selected barrel of powerful spicy Mourvèdre.

    Chaffey Bros. are championing ascendent Tempranillo and revisiting the priceless legacies of old vine Grenache out of the Barossa. This is an outstanding Australian rendition of what the Spanish do in the the northern Rioja region. Charming cola and cherry fruit flavours dominate the mid weight palate. Perfect for immediate drinking, especially with your next BBQ. Born and raised in the Barossa, Daniel started at the Penfolds cellar door, eventually co-founding a wine consultancy. Chaffey Bros. was born from Daniel’s dream to revive the name and the innovation of his great-great grandfather and his brother – the original Chaffey brothers – who founded Mildura in 1887. Together with his brother-in-law Theo Engela they now form the new iteration of Chaffey Bros. They love telling stories, and each of their wine labels reveals details about the vineyard, variety, region or history.

    Two Hands is a winery that rarely puts a foot wrong, and the 'Gnarly Dudes' is no exception! The Gnarly refers to the gnarled old Shiraz vines this wine comes from. The nose jumps immediately out of the glass with hints of Asian spice, blackcurrant, rasberry, black pepper, anise and the slightest waft of perfumed violets. The palate gives up a generous hit of black cherry and liquorice. With great complexity, heavy tannins and a brilliant long length, this is a wine that will greatly reward a few years in the cellar.' - Mark Faber, Vintage Cellars Double Bay.

    Cremant refers to French sparkling wine made in the traditional method outside of Champagne and is specific to a handful of regions. This one, from Burgundy, has a soft effervescence, is creamy and rich showing good complexity. A full, crisp style, exhibiting quality, cool climate Chardonnay fruit. 'Made from 100 per cent chardonnay fruit grown just hours from Champagne. this is a glittering alternative to the real thing. It's clean, bright and tight with juicy pink grapefruit and orange blossom flavours and a lemon fresh finale. Offer incredible value for money.' - Sydney Morning Herald, 25 Jan 2013 'A lacklustre label hides a gem here. This pale chardonnay sparkler from Burgundy has apple and stone-fruit aromas, a nutty thread, some patisserie notes and a fine, foaming mouth-feel ahead of a tangy finish.

    A sophisticated chardonnay based on some exceptional fruit and the deft subtle hand of the winemaker.

Love that minerally fine palate with its penetrating full ripe but controlled structure and depth. Pink grapefruit and pears mingle with white stone fruits. Seamless cashew oak integration finishes with mouth-watering acidity.

    Pure and unadulterated, Riesling translates a region like no other. Trademark Clare Valley lime and floral notes, this is a great example of the variety and should make for a must buy this season. The latest vintage displays punchy lemon sherbet, bath salts, orange blossom, freshly grated ginger and quintessential Watervale Riesling musk. The palate delivers lashings of flavour, has great line and drive, generous palate with prodigious length. Lemon curd and with grapefruit, guava and nashi pear, over-delivers on flavour with soda like minerality. • GOLD | Canberra International Wine Show 2016. • 94 Points | James Halliday. • Top 100 Wines | James Halliday 2016.

    This light, bright and incredibly appealing with its aromatic profile that screams Pinot Noir from Tasmania. Juicy in the mouth with minimal oak influence and superb acid balance, the fruit expression rarely comes any purer. 'Excellent colour; the bouquet is fragrant and flowery, with red fruits - cherry and strawberry - to the fore, the elegant and pure flavours of the palate a logical extension of the bouquet. Great value, drink now or later.' - 93 Points. | James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au
