DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS 98 POINT RED FROM JAMES HALLIDAY

2016 FALLEN GIANTS SHIRAZ - $32.95

"This has classic Grampians shiraz flavours; all black fruits and a strongly structured palate with a rocky edge to the fruit on the mid-palate; spices, cracked pepper and licorice all at maximum levels. Indeed, you would never have believed it possible that an even bigger wine would exist a few metres up the hill. Let me say, however that although this is super-full-bodied, it doesn't rely on tannins . Screwcap. 14.5% alc. Drink by 2045." James Halliday - 98 points

"Grampians shiraz. All French oak, 10% new, for 18 months. A study in elegance. Such sweet control, such savoury charm. It doesn't scream the words Grampians shiraz; it purrs them into a microphone. Plums, cherries, nuts, and low-but-important-levels of peppers and associated spices. Oak has been pinned immaculately to the fruit. It all sings through the finish. Modern and traditional at once. It feels completely unforced. Bless it. Alcohol: 14.5% Closure: Screwcap. Drink: 2022 - 2040." Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front - 95 points


MAXIMUM ORDER OF 3 DOZEN PER PERSON

 SUCCULENT GIPPSLAND PINOT NOIR AT AN ABSURDLY LOW PRICE

2017 BELLVALE PINOT NOIR - $22.95

The vines for this Gippsland Pinot Noir are planted at 7100 vines per hectare. Yield was only 1.7 tonne per hectare. Average vine age is 17 years. The result is a succulent pinot that has to be a contender for best value pinot of the year.

"The flavours themselves have a lovely warmth theme. Warm spices, stewed berries, refreshing acidity and a burst of woodsy spice notes through the finish. It's complex but it's succulent and accessible. Truth is that it drinks like a charm. Value is self-evident. Drink by 2019-2024." Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front - 92 points

"As the old saying goes, you can either have good Pinot or cheap Pinot. But never both. Except for this Bellvale wine. John Ellis' dry-grown Gippsland vineyard can deliver some excellent, concentrated wines, even if there is some vintage variation, with Pinot the star.
And this red is far too good for $25, it's initially quite fragrant, despite the obvious ripenss, with meat and almost plum fruit - there's a density that I always see in the Bellvale wines. Savoury, vaguely spritzy and with a great composure it's a substantial wine at an excellent price " Andrew Graham, Australian Wine Review - 92 points

"Medium to light red colour with a tint of purple. The aromas are vegetal, vanillan and foresty with sweet-compost touches. The palate is similar, and has abundant fruit-sweetness and mellow developed flavours. There's a lot of very ripe black cherry flavour too, and the wine has an exotic, almost cherry-liqueur aspect as a result. Good intensity. A succulent pinot." Drink 2018 to 2027. Huon Hooke - 91 points




A GREAT WINE IN HALF BOTTLES... AND AT WELL BELOW HALF PRICE!

Has the power and structure for long term aging, but I could drink it right now - Huon Hooke

2015 PENFOLDS ST HENRI SHIRAZ (375ml) - $45.00

"Medium deep colour. Expressive inky dark cherry, dark plum, blackberry aromas with roasted walnut notes. Beautifully modulated wine with a core of dark plum, mulberry, blackberry fruits, fine plentiful slinky tannins and roasted walnut herb garden notes. Finishes graphite firm with superb length and inky complexity. Lovely density, volume and texture. Has the power and structure for long term aging. The sum may well prove to be greater than the parts, so wait a while. 14.5% alcohol - Drink 2025-2045." Andrew Caillard MW - 96+ points

"A St Henri of character, depth and room-filling exuberance. The great 2015 season has yielded a wine of deep, dark, spicy fruit presence that entices from the outset. It's framed consummately in firm, fine tannin structure that propels its glorious fruit fanfare and promises effortless life in the cellar, lingering with undeterred line and great persistence. Drink 2020-2030. " Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste - 96 points

"Deep, bright red/purple colour with a bright, fresh-fruit aroma of blueberry, blackberry and spices, with a lick of aniseed and an earthy overtone. As usual, it lacks the charry-oak and graphite note that other Penfolds shirazes possess. A lovely soft, rounded, fleshy shiraz, which is supple and smooth and yet full-bodied as well, and structured for cellaring. Full-bodied and with a core of sweet fruit, this is a delicious shiraz. Succulent, indeed. I could drink it right now." Huon Hooke - 96 points

"With more grip and tannin and also more dryness and tang, St Henri is a beauty in 2015 and it looks back to its history with butcher's apron meatiness and smoke as well as looking forward with pristine redcurrant and prune tones reflecting the freshness and depth of this wine in equal measure. Superb and also impressively regal, this is a St Henri worthy of a reverential bow before you take a sip." Matthew Jukes - 19.0+ points out of 20

"Described by Peter Gago as the antithesis of a 'show wine', Penfolds' much loved and admired St Henri Shiraz continues to plough its own furrow in glorious style. In many ways it is a superb counterpoint to the more senior Grange, having been aged in large, old oak vats. The nose here is cocoa powder and summer pudding with a touch of mocha. This segues onto a palate of red and black fruits, dark chocolate, graphite and liquorice. St Henris are usually built for the long haul thanks to their acidity, fruit and densely populated tannins, and this is no exception. Superbly structured, juicily vibrant, sweet and balanced, this is tempting to broach now. However, I'd leave it for a couple of decades and wait for the magic to unfurl. Drinking window: 2017-2040." John Stimpfig, Decanter - 96 points

"Spicy and fragrant, with a deeply ripened, earthy and meaty bouquet of dark fruits, dark flowers and cracked black pepper backed by smoky, mocha-like nuances. It's pristine and stylish, medium to fullish in weight, with a soft, penetrative core of black, red and blue fruits knit with a fine, firmish spine and wrapped with a mouthwatering acidity. Vivacious and elegant, it finishes with true length and savoury qualities. Drink: 2035-2045+." Jeremy Oliver - 95 points

THE ESSENCE OF BAROSSA VALLEY

2009 CAHOOTS BAROSSA VALLEY SHIRAZ - $19.95

Produced by the formidable team of Corey Ryan and Simon Cowhan (the winemaker and viticulturist behind the Sons of Eden venture), the 2009 Cahoots shiraz is a testament to what two incredibly skilled individuals can produce for less than $20 from parcels of fruit specially selected from the Barossa Valley & Eden Valley.

A ripper of a Barosssa shiraz with elegance and power seamlessly combined. Ripe, lush and intensely focussed black fruits on the full-bodied palate have great depth and complexity for such a modestly priced shiraz; the finish is lively, fresh and supple, due no doubt in part to the Eden Valley component. Wonderful value. Back-up the truck.
