Longhop Mt Lofty Ranges Shiraz 2018
If you’re looking for a lot of chocolate on your biscuit, a heap of Shiraz in your glass, then walk this way. It’s potent and packed with black fruit, biscuit spices, chocolate and mint. Full-bodied, plenty of smooth grainy tannin, ample black fruit, something like veal saltimbocca in the savoury department, a lot of oomph, slight warmth from alcohol cuts through, but there’s enough weight here to cover it over, and a big raspberry and herb finish. You’re getting a lot of wine for your money here.  Tasted: Jun 2020; Alcohol: 14.5%; Price: $20; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2020-2028+; Rated: 92 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

Jeanneret Clare Valley Cabernet Shiraz 2019
Beautifully ripe and fragrant, the wine shows cassis, dark plum, olive and roasted nut aromas, leading to a flavoursome palate that's succulent and generously expressed. Wonderfully framed by fine silky tannins, finishing long and delectable. At its best: now to 2031. Rating: 93 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit

Sorby Adams Eden Valley Jellicoe Riesling 2021
After the diabolical difficulties of 2020, winemakers licked their lips when the fruit from the Adelaide Hills and Eden Valley started to cross the weigh bridge, especially for Riesling. And this is a wonderful example of the quality of Riesling coming from the high altitudes of Eden Valley in 2021. The aromas are distinctly lemon zest and a touch of grapefruit edginess. The palate is crisp and keen with a lingering lemon acidity. This is thoroughly delicious now but will go on for many years in the cellar. Price: $35.00; Drink: 2021 to 2036; Rating: 94 Points; Ray Jordan

Riposte The Foil Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Pristine and brightly expressed with Granny Smith apple, nectarine, fresh fig and lemon zest aromas, it's vibrant and flavoursome in the mouth offering terrific fruit purity combined with lively acidity, finishing fabulously long and juicy. At its best: now to 2026; Date Tasted: Nov 2021; Price: $24.00; Rating: 93 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
