The Lost Plot Rosé 2019

$49.00

Rosés are usually not that exhilarating as whites and reds, but there is something in this one that just makes you smile. It smells a bit like a Syrah-based Rhone rose with notes of blueberry, raspberry and Mediterranean spice. Light, fresh and mineral on the palate. Refreshing crispiness. Medium aftertaste.

Tomfoolery Trouble & Strife 2020

$39.00

Light salmon pink in the glass. Pleasant, sort of sweet aromatics - cranberry, candied cherry, raspberry. Very fruit-driven on the palate as well. Simple, refreshing, light. Alcohol is much lighter compared to the 2019 vintage, giving way to a lot more acidity. Great wine, works well at the price.

Topper’s Mountain Nebbiolo 2015

$59.00

Ripe cherry and red forest berry scents, whiffs of animale, fennel and clove. Fruit-forward up front, taken over by a convoy of dusty tannins and puckery acidity. Succulent in texture, marked with rose hip tea flavors and a slate-like minerality. Pure, such good flavour and detail, exceptional drinking quality and generally just a damn impressive red wine.

BK Wines Petillant Natural Pinot Noir 2021

$59.00

A happy little drop of Pinot Noir, fermented in concrete eggs. Sticky-textured with cotton candy fruitiness and hints of peppery spice. The fine fizz makes this wine just slide across the palate and finish with a punch of perky vitality. Neat and tidy, even when it warmed up a bit. Wicked value, done oh so well.

Blind Corner Petillant 2020

$59.00

Here, Chenin Blanc sees wild ferment in barrels and then has a bucket of Shiraz fired into it to kick off the in-bottle bubbles. The Shiraz gives just enough fuel to make sure the pressure is perfect and the flavors are bang on. Delicious stuff.

Domaine Simha ‘Paysan’ Pet Nat 2020

$59.00

A very fun, characterful and positively challenging pet-nat with tremendous character and playfulness. Most likely this kind of wine isn't everyone's cup of tea, but is truly a raw expression of nature. Not funky or "natty" in any way, but rather very clean, precise and finely crafted. It is definitely ready to drink now, but it will be interesting to see how this will develop over the next couple of years.

The Lost Plot Serendipity 2004

$69.00

Topper’s Mountain ‘MT’ Sparkling 2015

$59.00

A sparkling wine from New England made using Champagne method (Pinot Noir + Chardonnay with secondary fermentation occurring in bottle). Not many affordable sparklers like this are found on the AUS market. Marked with a beautifully rounded structure, elegant bubbles and a fresh breath of acidity. With the richness that it offers, it definitely needs to be paired with some lighter tapas or seafood.

So Fresh, So Clean

Aromatics, liveliness, mouth-watering acidity. Here you’ll get it all. Just pure deliciousness in a glass, from well-known grape varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris, to some more unexpected, but nonetheless delightful examples of Assyrtiko and Vermentino.

Bellwether ‘Ant Series’ Riesling 2018

$49.00

A balanced and promising Riesling. There seems to be quite a bit of ripeness and sense of concentration with a good acid structure, suggesting some unrealized potential. Lots of freshness coming in the form of green apple, melon, citrus fruit. A mineral touch on the finish. Ready to be drunk now, but could also age a few more years easily.

A solid QPR for this Geelong white blend. Don't expect out-worldly terroir depth, but rather superb varietal expression and structural balance. Marked with peach-yoghurt and lemon-rind aromas, leading to a smooth, creamy and textural palate that has plenty of body and an aromatic, polished finish.

Lucy Margaux Vino Bianco 2021

Pale hazy in the glass. Nice momentary VA on initial nose, quickly clearing out to clean citrus, white plum, peach and jasmine. In the mouth: unmistakably 'natty' with a shock of acid driving the bright fruit flavors to oblivion. Some hints of minerality on the finish as well. A taut, fun wine ideal for Sunday's visit to the beach.

BK Wines ‘Ovum’ Grüner Veltliner 2020

$69.00

An incredible step-up compared to 2019 (which was their first Grüner vintage btw). This has managed to escape the winemaking characteristics easily and give much more varietal expression - white pepper, lemongrass, lemon juice, celery. Burst of acidity on the palate with a nice, long finish (just a touch of lees on it). Wonderful to see such a progression!

Brash Higgins ‘CHN’ Chenin Blanc 2019

$49.00

Hazy golden yellow in the glass. Beautiful aromatics, with much less VA than the last few vintages. Notes of yellow apple, peach, pear, some oxidized papaya. Plush on the palate, almost full-bodied. Just an explosion of tastes with an acidity that's not sharp, nor overexpressed. Stunning balance of all its elements and a very long finish. The best version of CHN we've tried to date, kudos to Mr. Hickey.

Domaine Simha ‘Nature’ Sauvignon Blanc 2019

$69.00

Sauvignon Blanc is one of the dominant grape varieties in Tasmania, giving amazingly energetic wines. The nose on this is all exotic, complemented by some dill and sea salt. Lightning strikes on the palate! You can taste the vitality, but it's so well blended with the fruit that you forget it's there. Until you come to your next sip (or bottle).

Domaine Simha ‘Raya’ Sauvignon Blanc 2019

$79.00

A very eccentric, atypical and slightly oxidative, yet very drinkable, complex and enjoyable Sauvignon Blanc coming from Simha. There is very little typical varietal character here and the style is more in the 'natty' white wine camp, with somewhat dominant phenolic notes, some terracotta tones of amphorae and oxidative complexity. However, if you don't mind that, this is a lovely little drop - the relatively light body of the wine and incisive acidity make it a great food wine.

Domaine Simha ‘Lotus’ Amphora Riesling 2019

$69.00

This Riesling is ripe and fresh with a fleshy body and bright flavors of freshly picked red apples, some cantaloupe, a little bit of tart lemony citrus fruits, light sweeter notes of ripe citrus fruits and a hint of honeyed sweetness. Quite high acidity that lends nice sense of balance and poise to the wine. Mouth-watering finish. Definitely one for the books.

Domaine Simha ‘Rani’ Riesling 2019

We could drink this out of a faucet! Pale lemon-green in the glass. Wonderful aromas of green apple juice, chamomile, peach and some wet stones. Body is light, but bursting with acid and fruit. When drinking this, all worries go away and you're transported onto a sun-bathed meadow where the grass smells fresh, the animals roam around freely and everything is ok.

Ministry of Clouds Riesling 2021

$59.00

A very lovely, balanced and structured Clare Valley Riesling that combines ripe, just barely off-dry fruit with bracing, precise acidity. Still feels surprisingly tightly-wound and most likely could benefit from a few years in a cellar. Punches above its weight and presents great value at this price.

Lovely feel, delicious drinking. Supple texture, ripe citrus flavours, some salted cashew going on, a lick of green herbs and a hint of smokiness overlaid. Flavours and scents match nicely, similar things to say. The general feel is of a complex, medium weight wine with good freshness on its side. It feels interesting and good drinking at once. Nicely done.

Silverstream Riesling 2019

Pale lemon-green in the glass. Vibrant and fun on the palate, offering great acidity and 4-5 g/L of residual sugar, just right. Citrus domination with a bit of green apple and melon. Bit of petrol due to bottle aging. Medium finish. An everyday Riesling with a very clean fruit character and good balance. Great for drinking with fish or light cheeses.

Travis Tausend Hey Pup 2020

Gosh this is good! A strong reminder in the glass of how good these SA field blends can get. It’s that powdery texture mixed with glass shards of acidity. The strong scents of fresh squeezed lemon, perfect Tommy’s Margaritas, green apple freshness. Intensity and crystalline texture yet so much drinkability and refreshment. Faint savouriness? That too. And a quartz-like minerally finish matched to light almond with citrus spiked over the lot. Wow.

Moondarra Studebaker Bianco 2017

$49.00

Studebaker Bianco is one conclusion in a series of experiments in texture and tannin in white wine, a post-punk, post-natural, tangy, minerally, crunchy gargle. The overt green-melon 'fruitiness' of this wine is a pleasant surprise. Texturally it's a joy. Leaving the wine unfiltered retains viscosity as well as almond blossom aromatics. The "phenolic", skinsy crunch (which comes from the fermentation on skins) acts as a kind of picture frame around the wine defining the honeydew and pear flavours complemented by ginger spice confined within these borders.

South by Southwest Chenin Blanc 2020

Rich, rich nose with an abudance of fruit and florals. Same on the palate where nothing is too textural or overdone. Bit of sweetness coming from the lees contact, but this is so well-integrated with the acidity that it makes us shed tears of joy. Top-notch quality from the LP crew.

Pale lemon green in the glass. Superbly aromatic, almost like a lychee was smashed into the glass. Some note of lemongrass, white pepper and papaya. Rich and lean at the same time, lots of body, lots of alcohol, but also a good string of acidity to complement. Nice Gewurz, nothing like Alsace or other Aussies that we've tried. Props.

Really good Chardonnay, even when drunk slightly warm (happens sometimes, we have to admit it). Some solid complexity coming through with ripe tropical & stone fruit followed by barrel fermented tones of brioche, vanilla and butter. Zippy acidity highlighting the fruit, preventing it from being overripe & heavy. Big alcohol as well, but balanced. Long finish.

This vintage displayed a totally different universe compared to 2015. Pronounced and attractive nose with slightly sweet and nuanced aromas of yellow fruit, some marzipan and crème à la vanille, a little bit of apple jam and a touch of crème brûlée. This is a wine you'd eat for breakfast, just from the smell of it. Bone-dry, yet so rich, offering spectacular mouth-watering acidity. Superb balance. A beast for the price.

BK Wines ‘Gin Gin’ Chardonnay 2020

$79.00

A ripe and juicy yet still wonderfully firm, structured and acid-driven Chardonnay with beautiful purity of fruit and a great combination of ripe fruit and freshness. There's no denying that the wine shows quite a bit of ripeness, but it nevertheless retains a wonderful sense of balance and freshness at the same time, never once coming across as soft, heavy or blowzy. It is drinking wonderfully right now but will continue to develop for some years more. Priced according to its quality.

In terrific shape right now, even though young. Vibrant, youthful fruit dominates the nose - green apple, bursts of citrus, some nuttiness as well.

An impressive effort that is drinking wonderfully right now and will probably continue to develop for a handful of years more.

Hand-picked fruit from 40-year-old vines, whole bunch pressing, 12 months on lees. Super-lean, displaying powerful green, unripe forms of fruit - apple, kiwi, lime. A bit of textural richness comes from the lees, but this definitely needs 1-2 years time to rest in the bottle. Balanced, persistent, mineral finish.

You want to introduce natural wine to your friends and get their eternal affection afterwards? This is your animal. A blend that changes each year, depending on what the vineyard provides. For this vintage, Nav has mixed Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. It's all about texture here, bumped up by stunning minerality. The acidity has you in tears with every sip but is perfectly integrated with the 12% abv and juicy fruit concentration. Buy it, drink it, cellar it - everything goes.

The inspiration for this wine is easy. Chardonnay loves Margaret River, and Margaret River loves Chardonnay. In a glass the wine presents with a vibrant straw tinged yellow.

The palate expresses a flinty liveliness of stone fruit, with well-balanced natural acidity and complexity.

What a fantastic drop this is, easily one of the top 3 white wines we've tried this year. It?s a Chardonnay that has everything you?re looking for in this grape - elegance, richness, acidity and excitement. The 2018 is catching up to the quality of the '17, but it needs more time in the bottle. Give it a few more months and it will be ready to rock & roll. Top value.

This particular wine is a blend of Vermentino and Moscato Giallo (which serves as complementary grape). The wine spends three months on skins in tank on its skin to acquire aromatics, colour and strength. Dane works with small batch co-ferments, wild yeasts and ambient ferments.

Deep ruby in the glass, showing a bit of haze. Beautifully aromatic with notes of gun flint hitting the nose right off the bat, but with air, this opens up to more fruit-savory character. Tones of ripe strawberry, freshly picked cranberry, juniper and some exotic spice. Good depth, but seems too young at the moment.

Domaine Simha ‘Rama’ Pinot Noir 2019

$99.00

Pale and cloudy in the glass. Superb aromatics - at first some strong flint dominates, but as the wine breathes, it gives way to sweet-ish red fruit and herbal sensations. Very light on the palate. Crisp acid that needs some time in the bottle to mellow down. Fruit hits the senses first, but the more you drink this, the more you realize it's a very savoury style of Pinot. Give it 2-3 more years in the bottle to calm down and it will be such a smooth operator.

A very ripe and bold Montepulciano that is so very like one could expect from the style. Quite a powerhouse, but mainly in a good way. The wine is remarkably fresh, bright and balanced. The overall style is quite straightforward and fruit-driven, lacking some complexity, but we can imagine the wine could gain some additional depth with aging. Very enjoyable - especially for the vintage - and offers lots of pleasure.

This is a rare expression of Margaret River Nebbiolo due to the relative scarcity of the variety within the region and our aim was to showcase the high-toned brightness and vibrancy of fruit whilst still integrating complexity and interest through structure and developed tannins to create an earlier, approachable Nebbiolo thoughtfully balanced with sweetness, savouriness and ultimately freshness.

Tomfoolery ‘Young Blood’ Grenache 2020

$39.00

If you're a fan of Rioja and their early 'Joven' releases, you're in for a real treat. Inspired by Ben Chipman's travels across Europe, where fellow backpackers drank solely out of carafes, this Grenache breathes life into a category known mostly for heavy-duty wines. Fresh, fragrant, uncomplicated.

Tomfoolery ‘Young Blood’ Shiraz 2019

$39.00

Inspired by the new wave 'Vino Joven' wines of the old world, Young Blood Shiraz is released as a cheeky youngster with just a brief barrel maturation to showcase structure and varietal character, while retaining freshness and finesse. The fruit is open fermented utilising native yeasts, with 30% whole bunch in the mix. After 7 days maceration post-ferment, the wine is gently basket pressed and racked to stainless vats (50%) and old French oak hogsheads (50%) for 6 months maturation. Young Blood Shiraz is pure, uncomplicated enjoyment.

Tomfoolery High Cotton 2019

$49.00

Deep ruby in the glass. Blasting aromas of oriental/Indian spice mixed with red and dark berry fruit. You've probably never smelled a wine like this, so hats off for the uniqueness Tomfoolery. The body is medium, has a good balance of all its elements and tastes super bright in the mouth. Tannins just right, offering more grip to the whole structure. Medium (+) finish.

Topper’s Mountain Nebbiolo 2015

$59.00

Ripe cherry and red forest berry scents, whiffs of animale, fennel and clove. Fruit-forward up front, taken over by a convoy of dusty tannins and puckery acidity. Succulent in texture, marked with rose hip tea flavors and a slate-like minerality. Pure, such good flavour and detail, exceptional drinking quality and generally just a damn impressive red wine.

Silverstream ‘Reserve’ Cabernet Franc 2012

$59.00

Medium ruby in the glass. Spicy tones at first sniff, but with a bit of air, this opens up beautifully to fruit notes of plum, blackcurrant, blueberry and hints of hibiscus tea. Medium-bodied with high acid and slightly unripe tannins. Juicy fruits. So balanced. Long finish. Everything you want in a Cab Franc, which is often not seen on the Aussie market.

South by Southwest Super Margs 2020

$69.00

The 2020 ‘Super Margs’ draws influence from the highly sought after and respected Super Tuscan wines of Italy, which are made from non-indigenous varieties. The ripe fruit of the Cabernet Sauvignon provides richness and flavour, while the Sangiovese provides youthfulness, aromatics and overall acid to the blend. This wine is a little heavier than a medium bodied wine and shows off some great fruit and well-integrated tannins.

Tomfoolery ‘Dust Up’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

$99.00

Medium ruby in the glass. A fruit-forward nose that gives a lot of that New World Cab character. More of a red fruit-black fruit tango - raspberry, black cherry, blueberry, blackcurrant. Not overly rich, more of a refreshing Cab with a slight lick of oak to soften the already high acidity and soft tannins. Medium finish.

The body is medium, has a good balance of all its elements and is complemented by some really soft tannins. Juicy, ripe dark berries and fruitcake with a tangy acid spike.

Wendouree Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$319.00

Lively palate, persistent, well-rigged with fine yet chewy tannin, tobacco traces, more red than black fruit. An elegant Wendouree palate, more of the same flavours, with leather and liquorice, acid yes but balanced. Beautiful. This is more about Cabernet than the Clare Valley or Wendouree (although the latter capitialises on the possibilities with the variety in the region).

Always good, the Primitivo here shining full on. Lots of fruit-forward character accompanied by a bit of spice in the background. The palate is showing high acid with a brush of ripe tannins. Approachable now, but will go strong for 2-3 more years if you decide to lay it down in your cellar. You have to love how Amato makes these young wines drinkable straight off the bat, something that’s hard to find with old school winemakers nowadays.

Bellwether ‘Ant Series’ Montepulciano 2020

$59.00

A very typical entry-level Montepulciano. The wine is bright, balanced and crunchy with good freshness. With its high acidity and low tannins, the wine can remind some of Barbera - the flavors are slightly different, but the style is quite the same. Not really worth cellaring, but drinks very nicely with a wide variety of everyday dishes. A perfect little weekday wine.

As a whole this is an enjoyable, heavy-set all-rounder with decent balance and supple, straightforward fruit. Concentrated, quite opaque black-red color with a thinner, slightly purple rim. Plummy dark fruit and a surprisingly sophisticated streak game meat. The tannins are quite soft and mellow, giving the wine quite chewy texture and round, easily approachable character. The finish is supple and long with ripe and sweet flavors of cherry, dark fruit and quite pronounced vanilla.

Medium ruby in the glass, showing wonderful purple hues. The nose on this is just drop-dead gorgeous. OH! Reminds us of one of those French vin de soif wines from Beaujolais or the Rhone. Crunchy berry fruit, some sage, cracked pepper and roasted nuts. Pleasant balance in the mouth with a very persistent concentration of fruit in the front line and some green tones on the finish. Simple, but showing superb drinkability.

d’Arenberg ‘Dead Arm’ Shiraz 2013

$109.00

Open your spice draw and pull out all of your woody spices; cinnamon sticks, nutmeg, cloves... That?s what you can expect with your first smell of Dead Arm Shiraz. The savoury theme continues on the palate and more so as the wine evolves. Umami flavours are the dominant feature. Eventually the dried porcini notes surrender to a spiced plum or perhaps sour cherry note. A lovely refined palate with an elegant tannin profile that is fine and supple. Certainly a wine more about subtlety and nuance than brooding, boisterous power.

The bouquet is so enticing; pot pourri strong in dried rose petal, faint game meat, old leather and spice cupboard, wild forest berries on briar – true perfume. Beautiful!

Ruby red in the glass, showing medium intensity. Very aromatic, reminds us more of McLaren Vale Shiraz than Barossa - tons of floral elements, sweet blueberries, raspberries and cherries. Big & broad, high alcohol and piercing acidity. Just a brush of bitterness on the aftertaste. Definitely needs more time in the bottle, but this will have a long shelf life.

Deep, slightly translucent black color in the glass. Brooding, sweet-toned nose with aromas of overripe dark fruits, some stemmy greenness, a little bit of boysenberry jam, light earthy spicy tones and a hint of meatiness. You'd expect a fruit bomb on the palate, but this wine kinda does the opposite - it's firm and seriously grippy, while not exceeding any ripeness boundaries (if such exist). Not much depth or complexity on this, nonetheless, it's a superb representation of what Barossa is capable of and what kind of styles lay ahead.

Surprising concentration where distinctly perfumed overtone together with red precise berries, coarser earthy fruit peel, hints of stall and leather create desire. Good full-bodied wine with a slightly blurry roughness in the middle with tougher fruit skins, redder berries, perfume, stable and herbal spicy tones that together create a great wine. Not enough concentration for a too long life, here & there approximately three more left. Nice acidity and excellent tannin structure.

Lethbridge ‘Allegra’ Chardonnay 2008

$149.00

Allegra is Lethbridge's ?reserve? Chardonnay; not unrelated to the regular release, but here there is greater richness to the nose and palate. There is a touch of butter over the figs, nuts and minerals; this sees 100% malolactic but the effects are subtle and finely judged. There?s still a real acid spine holding all this together and a powdery richness from the oak. An all-wild yeast ferment has given this a wonderfully supple texture; there?s nothing feral about it. Medium-full bodied by Chardonnay standards, with great evenness along the tongue; this is where the quality really shows. Medium-long dry minerally finish. This should age beautifully for 2-3 more years. Exquisite Chardonnay.

Chablis-esque. Lemon gold in the glass. Rich complexity immediately detected on the nose - aromas of lime juice, lemon pie, rock melon, toast and whiffs of reduction (gunpowder) that blow off quickly. A bloody brilliant old-school Aussie white. Rich with fruit, but super lean and unbelievably fresh for its age. This is why you need to age Vat 1: it can be so low-key, restrained, austere and even underwhelming in its youth, but after more than 10 years in a cellar it starts to open up, becoming more expressive and complex, and softening up - yet retaining its firm acidic backbone. An outstanding display.
