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

Pirramimma Katunga Cabernet 2015
True to variety, the wine shows complex aromas of blackcurrant, dried herb, warm spice, cured meat and cedar on the nose. The palate delivers succulent fruit intensity and lovely mid-palate weight together with silky texture and fine-grained tannins, finishing long and delectable. At its best: now to 2027. Date Tasted: Feb 2020; Price: $30.00; Rating: 93 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit

Evans & Tate Breathing Space Sauvignon Blanc 2018
From multiple vineyards. A neat assembly of flavours from tropical to snow pea, and good mouthfeel. Experienced winemaking. Price: $19.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2019; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 90 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Jeanneret Clare Valley Big Fine Girl Riesling 2019
The '19 vintage is bringing forward some rieslings that should age very well. This is no exception. Presents a savoury yet steely introduction, lemon grass, ginger, lantana blossom and an unnerving lime intensity. Works a treat dancing on the taste buds - don't over chill and it will reveal more - with florals coming to the fore and super-tangy acidity. A classy riesling with excellent cellaring potential. Drink to: 2035; Price: $25.00; Date Tasted: January 2020; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 92 Points & Special Value Star; Jeni Port; James Halliday Wine Companion
