Ch Montlabert Saint Emilion
Crimson in colour with a delicate shimmer. Powerful nose with subtle scents of high grade wood and baking spices, with an attractively fresh note of menthol. Rich and balanced on the palate. A well-managed aging process adds an appealing earthiness, with flavours of wild berries and mahogany. Long and elegant on the finish with molten tannins and the freshness so characteristic of this great wine
Guigal Cotes du Rhone Rouge
The Guigal family owns vineyards in prime locations throughout the Appellations of Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Hermitage and Saint-Joseph from where their iconic wines are produced. The Guigal cellars are located in the centre of the town of Ampuis, on the right bank of the Rhône River, about 40 km south of Lyon. The Côtes du Rhône region stretches 200 km from Vienne in the north to Avignon in the south. Côtes-du-Rhône is the workhorse red of the southern Rhône Valley and is blended from up to 13 grape varieties, but usually leans heavily on grenache and syrah (Shiraz). Deep, bright, garnet-red in colour, it is a fresh, crisp wine with small soft fruit and spices. A full-bodied, elegant wine, with mellow tannins, warmth and aromatic intensity.

Grant Burge The Holy Trinity GSM
The name of this outstanding wine, 'The Holy Trinity' symbolises the Burge family's migration to the Barossa in the 1850's. The family, the vines and their faith created a tradition of winemaking that has continued for five generations. This wine also pays homage to the Barossa, encapsulating the three traditional red varieties of the Barossa - Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre. Under guidance of head winemaker Craig Stansborough, the three varieties come together to make a complex and flavour filled red.
Wirra Wirra Mrs Wigley Rose
With strawberry, melon and flower petal flavours this Mrs. Wigley fits the bill of a real racy Rose. It's made from Grenache, has a touch of sweetness, a zesty kick and finishes squeaky clean, leaving a refreshing zing in the mouth.
The stunning Amarone della Velpolicella displays delicate aromas with hints of sour cherry and Christmas pudding. The palate is full-bodied and warming with complex flavours of plums and baked fruit leading to a dry and textured finish.
Antinori Peppoli Chianti Classico
This wine has an intense aroma of red berries, accompanied by hints of vanilla and chocolate. It shows great structure on the palate, and persistence of the fruit. Pèppoli is characterised by elegant and gentle tannins. Tuscany is without doubt a wine region that produces some of the most important reds in the World. It is a region full of tradition, but in continuous evolution since the introduction of international grape varietals and the use of the French barrels that became common in the seventies. Beginning in the 80's and through the 90's the new wines, the Super Tuscans, benefited the whole Tuscan region. The Antinori family has been in the wine business since Giovanni di Piero Antinori joined the Florentine Guild of Vintners in 1385 more than 26 generations ago. Throughout the company's long history it has remained family owned and operated, and today it is directed by Marchese Piero Antinori.
Teusner The Independent Shiraz Mataro
From Kym Teusner, one of Australias most iconic winemakers right now, this exceptional Shiraz Mataro drinks like twice the price. If you didnt know in a blind tasting that it was a $30 wine, youd be quite happy paying $40 or $50. The Shiraz leads with loads of really beautiful, bold, opulent fruit thats typical of the Barossa, while the Mataro sits in the background, plumping up the tannins like a Cabernet, to add definition and structural balance. The two are just working together so well and thats why we simply couldnt deny this wine the best of the best. Simply superb!
Torbreck The Steading Grenache Blend
One of the bast examples going around. Incredibly ripe and sweet fruited bouquet and palate, showing Grenache's love for the heat; soft and ripe, warm and fleshy, with a splash of savoury spice to conclude.
All Saints Estate Sangiovese Cabernet
Full of ripe fruit with hints of black cherry, herbal notes and fine supple tannins, this smooth medium-bodied red is ready to enjoy. All Saints have blended the best local Sangiovese (80%) with pristine parcels of premium Cabernet (20%) to weave vibrant notes of cassis and blackcurrant through the savoury undertones of the Sangiovese. Medium bodied with brick tinges at the rim, this wine displays aromas of red fruits and slightly savoury herbal notes. The soft ripe fruit combines with balanced acidity to a balanced dry finish. The perfect medium-bodied wine to enjoy with rustic Mediterranean cuisine and tapas dishes. Wonderful with bruschetta, barbecued lamb or caramelised onion tart. Also perfect with aged cheeses like pecorino and cheddar that are suited to the wine's earthy character.
Ch Sainte Lampe De Meduse Rose Cru Classe
Another beautiful rosé from Provence region in France. Its crisp, dry palate pairs well with appetisers, grilled fish and white meats, summer salads and sautéed greens.
