Longview Adelaide Hills Hens Teeth Shiraz 2018
The wine is deep maroon in colour. A finely crafted style, it opens with hints of aniseed, dry herbs, leather, warm earth and tobacco leaves. This is a complex and refined Shiraz, seamless on the palate. There is no question that the team has taken advantage of an excellent vintage for the region. The texture is delightfully creamy and there is seriously impressive length here. Lots of tannins but they are very fine. For me, ideal with a rare steak now but it will also handle a decade in the cellar with ease. Excellent value. Drink to: 2022-2032; Price: $40.00; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 94 Points; Ken Gargett

Zontes Footstep Blackberry Patch Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Delectably styled and composed, the wine shows dark fruit richness together with smoked game, almond and fragrant spice notes on the nose. It's plump and succulent, offering fabulous fruit power, well supported by silky texture and fine tannins with a prolonged delicious finish. At its best: now to 2030; Price: $30.00; Rating: 94 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit

Reschke R-Series Sauvignon Blanc 2023
Bright and pristine, the wine shows green apple, lime peel, nectarine and green tea aromas, leading to a vibrant palate that's juicy and mouth-watering. Upfront and youthfully expressed, making it immediately appealing. Tasted: June 2023; Drink to: 2027; Price: $30.00; Alcohol: 12.5%; Rating: 92 Points; Wine Orbit

Drop Zone Clare Valley Riesling 2022
What strikes you immediately is the gorgeous perfumes emanating from the glass as soon as the wine is poured. Like a summer breeze wafting across a lavender field. Spices, a hint of bath salts and a touch of citrus, notably a gentle grapefruit note. It is, what we might deem, a pretty wine. The palate is clean and fresh and there is some richness evident. A wine of mid length. Thoroughly enjoyable drinking. A touch more length would not hurt but for its purposes, it hardly matters. Price: $27.00; Drink: 20xx - 20xx; Rating: 92 Points; Ken Gargett; Wine Pilot
