2007 Picardy Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc    A delicious wine, made very much in the style of the Merlot dominant St Emilion/Pomerol wines; all about elegance and refinement     $29.95 per bottle

2013 Ravensworth Hilltops Nebbiolo   "You absolutely know that if you keep this wine for not less than 10 years, and serve it blind, you will be able to convince your friends at the dinner table that it is a pinot noir... Yes, it does have the wild herb savoury twist of nebbiolo, allied with persistent fine tannins, but there is a power of red fruits. As it ages in bottle, aromas of spice, violets, cedar and rose petal can all be expected to develop" - James Halliday, 95 points   $34.95 per bottle

2014 Sons of Eden 'Kennedy' Grenache Shiraz Mouvedre   "The relatively deep colour tells you this is not your average Barossa GSM, the bouquet and palate shout agreement from the rooftops. This is a very high quality blend worthy of comparison to Chateau Rayas of the Rhone Valley" - James Halliday, 95 points; "They do a lovely job of this blend, year in, year out... It's medium bodied, silky smooth and spicy, with ultra-fine powder tannin, juiciness of fruit, though does not taste sweet, and a controlled spicy red berried finish of excellent length. Super from nose to tail" - The Wine Front, 93 points    $19.95 per bottle

2012 Sons of Eden 'Kennedy' Grenache Shiraz Mouvedre   "The grenache is from vines over 50 years old; the deep colour is an early warning sign of the unusual power this wine has courtesy of a splendid array of red and black fruits... I would argue for a 5-year moratorium before opening an attack on the bottle(s), although it won't go amiss with a large piece of flame-grilled wagyu beef. Exceptional value" - James Halliday, 96 points; "Medium body - ah the sweet velour fog - silky fine tannin, mixed sweet berries, layers of spice, meaty complexity and a very long finish with tannin that grips and shapes on exit. So tasty. Good GSM and variants still very much one of the happy hunting grounds of Australian wines" - The Wine Front, 93 points    $24.50 per bottle

2014 Star Lane Quattro Vitigni   A delicious blend of Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Merlot and Shiraz; reminiscent of an Italian super Tuscan blend wine. It packs a punch of fruit on the nose and pallate with a pot pourri of blackcurrants, blueberries and mulberries and other fruits.   $24.95 per bottle
