  1. Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021 375ml
    Yabby Lake Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021 375ml

    2021 was a vintage of exceptional quality.  A wet winter, mild spring and temperate summer produced wines that will live long in the memory and in the cellar.  The wines are fine, focused, beautifully balanced and above all, utterly delicious. This Single Vineyard Pinot Noir is intense and complex, super fine and silky. 

    A bright and dense crimson colour. The aromas are intense and complex for a young wine - red fruits, raspberry, red currant with dark cherries, coupled with a floral and spicy note. The palate is super fine and silky with layers of flavour and texture leading to a long and bold finish. Cellar for at least five years, and preferably more than 10. TOM CARSON, Winemaker, Yabby Lake

  2. August Premium Six Pack 2022 - Premium Pinot's
    August Premium Six Pack 2022 - Premium Pinot's

    We know you love pinot and we have put together a brilliant little pack from Australia, New Zealand and even Burgundy.

    These are some our favourite producers all in this one great box with a great showing of local legends from the Mornington and Yarra Valley as well as one of New Zealand's benchmarks bottlings. Round that out with a couple of soft and supple, ready-to-go Burgundies and this is the perfect pack to take a dip into.

    Australia represents strong in this months pack. From the Mornington Peninsula two heroes of the region are on show with the Kooyong Estate pinot noir 2019 and the latest release of the Yabby Lake Single pinot noir 2021. The Kooyong was a hit when last we tried and was one of the better estate releases from Kooyong with wonderful energy and sumptuous fruit while the Yabby is on fire! A brilliant bottling here with vibrant red fruits and subtle complexity that goes and goes.

    Up to the Yarra Valley and we have the ever-consistent Oakridge wines. A combo of stellar vineyards with the Willow Lake and one of Australia's greats, Dave Bicknell. A one-two combo of concentrated sweet fruits, fine tannins and layers of complexity that unfurl slowly over time in bottle or in the glass. He can do wrong!

    Over the ditch, to New Zealand we have the countries benchmark bottling with Ata Rangi 2019. We always wonder how this wine can get better but the team at Ata seems to take it up a notch every year. The 2019 has all the depth of fruit you expect but with a little extra lift and vibe. Normally we would say wait a bit for this wine but in half bottle this baby is hitting a sweet spot you just don't want to miss out.

    To close we have two wonderful Burgundies. The first is another PWS favourite in the Phillipe Collotte Marsannay. This satellite village is now hot property as prices soar in Burgundy proper but you might have trouble getting in now as Collotte have snapped up a lot of the great terroir. There Tete a Tete is all you could want with lithe tannins etched into a core of sweet fruit and savoury spice.

    The Tollot Beaut is a blend of three cuvees from three sides of the village and is a forward and generously styled pinot. All the mellow fruit of this southern appellation with foresty notes and supple spice it's a spot-on example of great Burgundy from this somewhat overlooked appellation.

  3. Guigal Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2019 375ml
    Guigal Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2019 375ml
    The 2019 Côtes Du Rhône will be a no-brainer purchase. This Syrah-heavy red has lots of blackberry, bouquet garni, and peppery notes in a ripe, full-bodied, textured style. It’s well worth buying and drinking over the coming 5-7 years. JEB DUNNUCK

    The 2019 Cotes du Rhone features scents of blackberries, raspberries and cherries. Medium to full-bodied, it's atypically rich and structured—a fine, balanced summation of the vintage. JOE CZERWINSKI Wine Advocate
    Rhone Blend
  4. Mont Redon Chateauneuf du Pape 2019 375ml
    Mont Redon Chateauneuf du Pape 2019 375ml
    The best "regular" Mont Redon I can recall tasting, the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape is wonderfully full-bodied yet silky and harmonious, while the nose offers gentle garrigue notes and purple raspberries. The tannins on the finish are supple, and the flavors add hints of cola-like spice to the minty-fresh finish. It's an assemblage of 60% Grenache, 31% Syrah, 8% Mourvèdre and 1% other permitted varieties, aged in a 50-50 mix of barrels and tanks. Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent notes. JOE CZERWINSKI, Wine Advocate
  5. Paolo Scavino Barolo 2018 375ml
    Paolo Scavino Barolo 2018 375ml
    The 2018 Barolo is a very pretty wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Sweet dried cherry, cedar, tobacco, cinnamon, orange peel and crushed flowers give this mid-weight, ethereal Barolo lovely aromatic presence to match its light-bodied personality. All the elements are nicely woven together. ANTONIO GALLONI, Vinous

    The Paolo Scavino 2018 Barolo is a pretty wine with sweet primary intensity that appears as tart cherry and dried raspberry. With Enrico Scavino's signature on the front label, this is a classic package with silky tannins and a long, polished mouthfeel. Fruit comes from multiple vineyard sites across the appellation, and an ample 38,000 bottles were made. MONICA LARNER, The Wine Advocate
  6. Querciabella Chianti Classico 2020 375ml
    Querciabella Chianti Classico 2020 375ml
    The 2020 Chianti Classico is bright, fresh and nicely lifted, with terrific precision and energy lending quite a bit of character. Bright red Sangiovese fruit, spice and a touch of blood orange are front and center. Even so, the 2020 appears to still be recovering from its bottling. That should not be an issue in another 6-12 months' time. This is the first vintage that includes fruit from parcel in Greve's Lamole district. ANTONIO GALLONI, Vinous
  7. Tellurian Tranter Shiraz 2019 375ml
    Tellurian Tranter Shiraz 2019 375ml
    Destemmed and crushed fruit with some small parcels of whole berries, fermented in stainless steel and concrete, left 10–16 days on skins, matured 19 months in French oak. Another strong, composed, concentrated Tranter shiraz from what was an extended vintage which allowed for extra hang time. A mighty tidy shiraz, in striking deep purple hues with lifted aromatics melding with black berries, licorice, chocolate and Aussie bush notes. Taut, fine tannins are in perfect balance. JENI PORT, James Halliday
  8. Domaine Philippe Collotte Marsannay Les Grasses Tetes 2021 375ml
    Domaine Philippe Collotte Marsannay Les Grasses Tetes 2021 375ml

    From two parcels of old vines; one based on Crinoidal limestone (known in France as Calcaire à Entroques), the other Comblanchien.

    This wine is perfumed and pure with real depth, lovely minerality in an elegant and focused style particularly for 2021. These wines from Collotte are getting better and better each year the cooler classic 21's at the estate have hit the mark. Fine velvety tannins mesh nicely with the small foresty-fruit mix carrying it to a long and satisfying finish. Seamless and classy this is all you could want from a wine like this and more.

  9. Rocche Costamagna Langhe Nebbiolo 2021 375ml
    Rocche Costamagna Langhe Nebbiolo 2021 375ml
    "Ruby red color. Deep raspberry and rose scents, well combined with spicy sensations. The tannic sensation is balanced and features a good potential, contributing to a captivating harmony. Due to its pleasant character, it is easy to pair to many foods. It pairs with white meat, chicken, medium-aged cheese. Its tannic finesse makes it also good with fish stew or soup and with spicy dishes" - Winemaker Notes
