Norfolk Rise Shiraz 2017
95 Points & Gold Medal - Limestone Coast Wine Show 2018
Machine harvested, crushed, destemmed, fermented, after 12 days pressed to stainless steel and 10% French oak barriques for 10 months. Highly perfumed, inexpensive and totally enjoyable punching well above its weight. All florals, black pepper and spice with juicy red fruits and a savoury overlay. It's medium-bodied, buoyant with supple tannins, ultra-refreshing and frighteningly easy to drink. Drink to: 2022; Price: $18.00; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Balnaves Of Coonawarra The Blend 2015
Largely merlot (60%) and cabernet sauvignon (3%). Balnaves has made this Bordeaux blend its own, defiantly thumbing its nose at Margaret River. It's on the light side of medium-bodied, but ticks all fruit boxes from blue and black, then moving on to the supple mouthfeel ex fine tannins and oak. Drink by: 2027; Price: $20.00; Date Tasted: Mar 2017; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 94 Points; Top 100 Wines for 2018; James Halliday Wine Companionn

Miles From Nowhere Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Top Gold & 96 Points - Royal Melbourne Wine Show 2019 
Top Gold & 95 Points - Royal Queensland Wine Show 2019 

Pale green. Intense aromas of ripe melons and tropical fruits with a hint of lime generating a unique freshness. Delicate floral aromas amongst snow pea, cucumber, lantana and musk lolly. The palate explodes with flavours of ripe tropical fruit and a hint of crisp gooseberry. Underlying these great varietal fruits is the subtle minerality of vineyard expression with herbal and spicy notes. The long lingering finish is lively and fresh with lime flavoured acidity.

Alkoomi White Label Riesling 2019
Western Australia’s Great Southern is one of Australia’s best sources of riesling – it’s cool and inland with a continental climate which suits this grape. The remarkable thing is how wineries like Alkoomi field such fine riesling at such a low price. This is their entry-level bottling, but make no mistake, it’s a high-quality wine. Tight, lively and energy-filled, it smells of stone-fruits including nectarine, and while the acidity is crisp and lively the palate is not too dry but fruity, balanced and charmingly accessible. Drink now to six-plus years. Gourmet Traveller WINE
