Knappstein Clare Valley Shiraz 2020 - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Splendidly ripe and perfumed on the nose showing black/blueberry, violet, toasted spice and hazelnut characters, leading to a beautifully weighted palate offering velvety texture and plump mouthfeel. Generous and flavoursome with a lingering silky finish."
Mcpherson Wines XV Pure Cabernets 2020 - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Beautifully ripe and aromatic on the nose showing cassis, sweet plum, cedar, mixed spice and rich floral aromas. The palate delivers succulent fruit intensity together with plush texture and silky tannins, finishing lingering and delectable."
Delas Ventoux 2019 - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Delightfully charming and elegantly perfumed on the nose with raspberry, sweet cherry, floral, olive and subtle spice aromas, it's juicy and beautifully supple in the mouth displaying bright fruit flavours with fine texture and polished tannins. Attractively composed and expressed."
Big Villa FLAGSHIP Cabernets Merlot 2018 - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "94pts. Offering graceful richness with elegant complexity, the wine shows Black Doris plum, cassis, violet, subtle tobacco, clove and cedar notes on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that’s wonderfully weighted and succulent. Well-structured by beautifully melded tannins, finishing splendidly long and supple. At its best: now to 2030"
Trapiche Malbec 2022 - Richly flavoured and with the robust, savoury characters that red wine fans adore, this is a classic expression of Argentinian Malbec. This wine is made from 100% Malbec from the high vineyards of the Mendoza River and the Eastern region of the Province. It shows rich flavours of plum, cherry fruit and hints of vanilla from the oak contact.
Fontana Mesta Grenache 2020 - The winery writes "A juicy, fleshy unoaked red wine, showing great purity and the typicity of high-altitude Garnacha from the heart of Spain, with expressive and well-defined aromas of black cherries and strawberries over subtle notes of spice and herbs. Bright ruby red colour. Fresh and with an excellent persistence on the palate. Versatile, medium to full bodied food wine, excellent with grilled, stewed and braised meats as well as pasta and tapas."
