d'Arenberg Marsanne Viognier Hermit Crab 2016 Product #32505 (In Stock)
d'Arenberg Marsanne Viognier Hermit Crab 2016 d'Arenberg Marsanne Viognier Hermit Crab 2016

72% Viognier for floral perfume and rich stone fruit and 28% Marsanne for richness and depth.  A bit of the Viognier ferments and ages in old barrels to add a little extra complexity.  Bold aromas of fresh peach, pear and apple fruit with a touch of honeysuckle lead to a plush, but vibrant, mouthful of ripe stone fruit, green melon and ginger flavors.  Clear as a bell and juicy on the mouthwatering finish.

Mitolo Jester Shiraz Mclaren Vale 2015 Product #33017 (In Stock)

A bold, rich, and nicely chewy Shiraz that pairs dark black fruit with accents of chocolate, leather, spice and more.  A dead ringer for the Suckling 93 point 2015:  "Bright and vivid with blueberry, blackberry and licorice. Hints of flowers. Full body, tight and chewy. Linear and racy. This shows strength and structure."  Better with a decant now (to blow off some gas) or in 2019.

Pewsey Vale Riesling 2015 Product #30067 (In Stock)
Pewsey Vale Riesling 2015 Pewsey Vale Riesling 2015

Is this the greatest bone-dry Riesling in the world?  It's in the running, but it runs away with "best value" honors in the category and may hold the record for the most 90+ point ratings.  Intense lemon-lime, chalk, and floral herb aromas lead to a sizzling, dry, palate of yellow-green citrus, ginger, white pepper, peach, and more.  Finishes stony, long, and bone dry with a lingering touch of honeysuckle and lime zest.  Brilliant stuff.

"Very pure lemons and limes here that are concentrated, stony and fragrant. There's very pure fruit focus here, as this has the right balance of acid and texture. It's smooth, fleshy, dense, really deep and will drink early and live long."  James Suckling 95-96 points

"Ripe citrus fruits, fig, green tea and a hint of honey on the nose. Shows more roundness and heft than usual for this bottling, offering pliant orange and pear flavors and a subtle touch of honeysuckle. Finishes smooth, seamless and persistent, with a building mineral note and repeating orchard fruit character." Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

"Starting with pronounced green apples, citrus and white pepper, the 2015 Riesling leads to some notes of coriander seed and jasmine. Light, dry, lively and fresh on the palate, this Riesling is still a little tight, but possesses some spicy hints and great length."Wine Advocate 90 points

"Apple, lemon blossom and pear flavors are lively and open-textured, showing finesse and lingering beautifully on the finish. Drink now through 2025."Wine Spectator 90 points

Best's Great Western Shiraz Bin No. 1 2015 Product #32870 (In Stock)
Best's Great Western Shiraz Bin No. 1 2015 Best's Great Western Shiraz Bin No. 1 2015

This is just a stunner, marrying the bold fruit and peppery spice you love in Aussie Shiraz with a minerally, earthy, sophistication normally not seen outside the Northern Rhone.  On Victoria's silt and clay soils, Best's Great Western has crafted a winner here.  100% Shiraz and just 14.0% abv.

"A wealth of fragrant raspberries, red plums and peppery, cool-climate shiraz characters sit for all to behold on the nose, and there's a handy earthy nuance, too. The palate's bathed in cool-climate blackberry and plum flavors as well as plenty of licorice and sarsaparilla. What great depth and the peppery finish and shimmery, glossy tannins hold long and flawless. Drink now through to 2024."  James Suckling 96 points

Pewsey Vale Riesling The Contours 2011 Product #32041 (In Stock)
Pewsey Vale Riesling The Contours 2011 Pewsey Vale Riesling The Contours 2011

If you enjoy the bone dry "regular" Pewsey Vale Riesling, step up to this late release bottling of the estate's best fruit.  Dry, driven, toasty.

"This release deserves some sort of award for consistency, year in and year out. The 2011 is light to medium in body and long, zesty and vibrant on the finish. Aromas and flavors of bergamot, honey (although the wine is completely dry) and toast are classic aged Eden Valley Riesling. Drink now–2030."Wine Enthusiast 93 points

"Up front and refreshing, offering a seamless mix of lime, pear and green apple flavors. This wine's details gain momentum on the finish, where smoke, lanolin, beeswax and chamomile accents add complexity and depth. Drink now through 2027."Wine Spectator 93 points
