Gosford Reserve Shiraz South Eastern Australia 2013 Product #28207 (In Stock)
Gosford Reserve Shiraz South Eastern Australia 2013 Gosford Reserve Shiraz South Eastern Australia 2013

Back before Aussie Shiraz started to taste the same - thick, heavy, and laboring under a load of over-toasted oak - we used to find great value reds like this with ease.  Harder now, but still very much possible as one sip of the fresh, clean, and just 13.9% abv Gossford Shiraz shows.  This is all about ripe Shiraz fruit - black grape, black plum, blackberry, cherry and more - with great lift from juicy fruit acids.  The well-moderated oak treatment (6 months in French and American barrels) adds attractive spice and smoke notes and rounds off Syrah's rough edges without getting in the way of drinking fun.  "Fun" is really what this fantastic value red is all about.  And, at this price, you can share it with a crowd or just enjoy the fun anytime by itself or with everything from grilled beef to pizza.

Lismore Range Chardonnay 2013 Product #28208 (In Stock)
Lismore Range Chardonnay 2013 Lismore Range Chardonnay 2013

Just about the best value we’ve found in classy New World Chardonnay this year.  A California-based "negotiant" took advantage of the ripe 2013 harvest in Australia to purchase beautifully ripe Chardonnay and have it aged 5 months in French oak barrels.  Then - to keep costs down - it's shipped to the USA in an airtight bladder and bottled in California.

Leaving that all aside, it's flat out delicious.  Juicy apple and pear fruit take center stage with accents of spice, salty caramel, and just a touch of butter.  Rich and creamy, but with air it gets a bit more juicy with crisp apple livening the finish, but the pear, caramel, toasted nut, and hint of butter keep pumping through from first sip to last. A stunning value in a great everyday Chardonnay for parties, sipping, or most any food.

Pewsey Vale Riesling 2013 Product #27969 (In Stock)
Pewsey Vale Riesling 2013 Pewsey Vale Riesling 2013

Yet another outstanding release of what has become the benchmark dry (bone dry, actually!) Riesling from Australia's Eden Valley.  Lemon peel, tangerine, lime and green apple aromas lead to a round, focused, mouthful of bright citrus, apple, and chalk dust flavors.  Mouthwatering and a touch nervy on the brisk finish but certainly not austere.  It's going to be another 90+ year once the critics catch up!

Fox Creek Shiraz Mclaren Vale 2012 Product #29509 (In Stock)
Fox Creek Shiraz Mclaren Vale 2012 Fox Creek Shiraz Mclaren Vale 2012

Nice juicy character the the ripe fruit with smoky accents.  Very good value here.

"Exotic, expansive aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, vanilla and cola, along with a peppery overtone and a hint of violet pastille. Broad, fleshy, appealingly sweet boysenberry and cherry liqueur flavors show excellent depth and a seamless texture. Finishes juicy and long, with building spiciness, an echo of blue fruit and round tannins."  Vinous (Josh Reynolds) 91 points

"Fine tannins swarm around a lithe core of blueberry, dark plum and savory flavors. Earthy nuances linger on the finish. This has intensity and grace. Drink now through 2017. 500 cases made."Wine Spectator 89 points

Limited.  Wines arrive February 20.  Lovely Aussie Cabernet that's drinking perfectly now.

Full-bodied with a high level of fine grained tannins and high acidity, the fruit and earth components are well intertwined on the palate, finishing long.”Wine Advocate 92 points

Fowles Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz 2009 Product #28052 (In Stock)
Fowles Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz 2009 Fowles Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz 2009

It's been a while since we got this excited by Shiraz.  From Australia's coolest growing region, this delivers plenty of New World fruit in a sophisticated, food-friendly, frame.  Really, really, good.

"The 2008 Ladies who Shoot their Lunch Shiraz gives a very deep garnet garnet-purple color with pronounced aromas of blackberry, blueberry and licorice plus subtle notes of mocha, cinnamon and cardamom. Rich and full, this Shiraz is nicely balanced by crisp acid and a medium level of grainy tannins. Drink it now to 2018+."Wine Advocate 91 points

"This cool-climate Shiraz opens with a range of ripe dark berry and cherry flavors, shaded with smoky, minerally overtones that balance against pinpoint acidity and mingle nicely through the generous, focused finish."Wine Spectator 91 points

If you like old-school Napa Chard - big, rich, gently oaky - then this delicious, fruit-filled, wine is for you.  Even if you don't shoot your own lunch.

"Smoky, pungent aromas of tangerine, poached pear, melon and buttered toast. Rich and broad but lively, with good lift to its orchard and citrus fruit flavors.

Clarendon Hills Syrah Astralis 2008 Product #29334 (In Stock)
Clarendon Hills Syrah Astralis 2008 Clarendon Hills Syrah Astralis 2008

“The 2008 Astralis Vineyard Syrah is a bit of a triumph given the vintage. Very deep garnet-purple in color, it reveals earthy notes to begin – moss-covered bark and black truffles, damp humus and iodine. At the core it presents aromas of black cherries and creme de cassis plus mocha and anise. The palate is concentrated and powerful yet elegant with firm, very fine grained tannins, very high acidity and ample flesh that is already presenting a multitude of layers. The finish is very long and though there’s some cedar showing, it should marry by the time this wine is ready to drink. This Astralis is very young and primary promising much more to come!"Wine Advocate 97 points

“Dense and chewy, bursting with juicy blueberry and dark plum fruit, this weaves black olive and spice notes into the long and grippy finish. Shows consistency throughout. Best from 2015 through 2020.” Wine Spectator 94 points
