Hart & Hunter 2017 Remparts Sémillon

Jancis Robinson once said, “Hunter Valley Sémillon is Australia’s unique gift to the wine world.” We couldn’t agree more and we’ve brought ...you the perfect example.

This Sémillon is definitive of the winery’s ethos: to craft expressive wines from single vineyards where the story is all about where they come from. Their provenance. As a young Sémillon, this wine gives fresh, powerful, acidity complemented by lime zest and blossom.

“Has more immediate fruit than its Oakey Creek sibling, although I have to admit I had forgotten tasting The Remparts previously. Lemon zest, pith and juice flavours ride on a framework of slippery, rubbery (tension, not flavour) acidity.”

Greenstone Vineyards 2012 Yarra Valley Methode Traditionelle Sparkling

This sparkling is a beautiful blend of Pinot Noir (53%) and Chardonnay (47%). The fruit was sourced from three different vineyard blocks, each harvest...ed to optimise fruit and acid balance. The palate delivers welcoming crunchy apple, citrus and oyster shell.

In keeping with traditional production methods, this wine was aged for an extended period on lees – 48 months – which adds power to the flavour and creates a creamy, fine, mousse-like finish.

“54/46% blend of pinot noir and chardonnay. 48 months on lees. Awash with yellow stone fruit and lemon curd flavours, cashew and crisp apple notes adding the extras. 6 years young; it has developed complexity but it feels as though it has plenty of time ahead of it.”

Delatite 2016 Estate Riesling

One of Delatite’s principal varietals, the Estate Riesling is crafted in the quintessential Australian style. 20% of the vintage is placed in old Fr...ench oak puncheons to integrate added texture – giving the wine added depth. On the pallet is the characteristic citrus notes, fresh acidity and floral notes toward the end. A structure which is tight, focussed and expressive. read more show less

“The combination of wild yeast and part fermentation in used hogsheads are contributors to a riesling with considerable presence and appeal; the flavour cornerstones are lime and Meyer lemon, the mouthfeel relatively (but pleasantly) soft. Nice wine.”

Eden Road 2015 Courabyra Pinot Noir

This is Pinot Noir that combines beautiful, focused fruit with exceptional value. Sourcing the fruit from a single vineyard gives clarity to the bouqu...et of dark cherry and peppery spice on the nose as well as the textured palate of fresh dark cherries, red berries and pencilly oak. Closer to a fine French Burgundy than a typical Australian Pinot Noir. read more show less

“It tastes quite different to mainstream Australian Pinot Noir, and in a good way. Certainly falls more towards Burgundy than some sweeter fruited local styles, though that's a comparison many find odious.”

Stella Bella Wines 2016 Margaret River Chardonnay

This bright, pale straw-coloured chardonnay opens with a balance of fruit and savoury aromas. Fresh lime, nectarine and peach work harmoniously with t...he subtly roasted hazelnut and flinty aromas of the French oak barrel fermentation.

This elegant combination of aromas is greeted by Stella Bella’s signature spring water, mineral acidity. This wine is perfectly balanced with a lovely texture. It is delicious now or for years to come.

“Nectarine, lime, vanilla nougat, spice and a little struck match. Medium bodied, good hit of lime and pink grapefruit flavour infused with vanilla and green olive – kind of rich yet restrained at once – glossy and smooth, with flinty and smoky highlights through the long finish. Spot on. Always a pleasure to drink.”

“Brimming with life and energy, the fragrant bouquet of citrus and white flowers, the palate intense and very long; the flavours are spun around beacons of white peach and grapefruit, the barrel-ferment inputs simply adding complexity.”

Flametree 2016 Margaret River Shiraz

The most recent vintage of the Flametree Shiraz stands out from previous years thanks to Cliff Royle’s team and their thirst for perfecting their wi...nes.

The addition of dried stems, whole bunches and whole berries results in a Shiraz higher in complexity and perfume. More of a medium-bodied red compared to other years. A strong perfumed nose, the Flametree Shiraz brings a palate of cherry, plum and liquorice. A strong and generous wine.

“It’s an elegant wine, well-ripened, floral and perfumed, and gently sinewy. Margaret River almost never makes ‘big’ or heavy shiraz but this is ever-so-slightly lighter than the norm, though the complexity levels have been elevated as compensation. I like it. It’s not ready to drink right now, it needs a couple of years to start showing itself properly; it begs for a touch of age to creep in. Some faces just look better with a crease or two. Balance of fruit-oak-acid-tannin here is impeccable, as is the flourish to the finish. It’s a squeaky clean wine, but an interesting one. Admirable. With a future. ”
