Cheap and cheerful South Australian wines, pristine Piemonte, aromatic whites & new Starward whiskey
Jericho - Textural Drops from South Australia!
With 50 years of combined winemaking between them, the Jericho family produce wines with distinctive style and elegance - a result of their three-rule philosophy. First, for the wines to comfortably exhibit the full varietal expression of the chosen grape. Second is that the wines must be completely in balance, making sure there is no distinct part that sticks out, like no excessive tannins, acid, or oak. The final rule is, if the first two elements are followed through correctly, that of maximum drinkability, creating wines of easy enjoyment while maintaining deep and complex flavours. The value behind each of these four wines is some of the best we've yet seen from South Australia - be sure to give at least one a try! 
 
2020 Jericho Fumé Blanc  - $22 per bottle ; RRP $25
"Very ripe - tangerine, kumquat and greengage, rolling along a pungent track of moderate acidity and a lees-inflected mineral twang. A bit smoky, but sublimated by the fruit while adding to the sense of time and place." - 91 Points, Ned Goodwin MW, Wine Advocate

2020 Tempranillo - $22 per bottle ; RRP $25
"Love the texture of this. The polish. Red and darker berry fruit flavours with inputs from graphite and clove. It’s suggestive of woodsmoke and fire, in a complexing way. But the really lovely thing here is the feel of the fruit and indeed the feel of the tannin, both of which feel fine and meticulous. The jubey nature of the fruit is pretty delicious too. It’s a complex wine but it’s very, very easy to drink/like." - 92 Points, The Wine Front


2020 Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre  - $22 per bottle ; RRP $25
"GSM blend from the Blewitt Springs sub-region of McLaren Vale. 80/16/4 distribution between grenache, shiraz and mourvèdre. The grenache is grown on 40-year-old bush vines. The Jericho wines are always so well turned out. So fresh, so well balanced, so modern and indeed so thoughtful. And always so very, very drinkable. This displays jellied red/black fruits with savouriness in the treble and anise in the bass. It’s a charming drink." - 92 Points, The Wine Front


2018 S3 Shiraz - $22 per bottle ; RRP $25
93It saw old (French) oak only. It’s fresh and raring to go but it has good volume too. In fact there’s a heartiness to the fruit here. Plums, violets, forest berries and a minted licorice character. It’s damn tasty and damn good to drink. No hesitation in recommending this." - 93 Points, The Wine Front
Fratelli Alessandria - Piemontese Excellence

Alessandria remains one of my favorite under the radar estates in Piedmont. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
 

Fratelli Alessandria is one of our favourite Piemonte producers. Not only are they absolutely excellent value for money, we also adore their classical style, which faithfully embraces the naturally elegant terroir of the Barolo subregion of Verduno. The wines are pure, nuanced, complete and perfectly weighted. From top to bottom, the range of wines has so much character. 
 

2019 Dolcetto d'Alba - $32 per bottle ; RRP $36 (89 Points, Vinous)

2019 Barbera d'Alba - $34 per bottle ; RRP $39 (91 Points, Vinous)

2019 Langhe Nebbiolo Prinsiot  - $50 per bottle ; RRP $58 (92 Points, Wine Adv.)

2017 Barolo del Commune di Verduno  - $110 per bottle ; RRP $125
"Here's a new wine that reflects the enthusiasm for comune-focused wines that are now gaining much traction across the Barolo appellation. The Fratelli Alessandria 2017 Barolo del Comune di Verduno shows beautifully even in its youth and most especially after the bottle has been opened for a bit or double decanted. Like all these wines from this vintage, it needs a little extra breathing room. The results are precise and focused with a good balance of light spice, mineral and tar." - 94 Points, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

 

Aromatic Whites - Perfect for the Warmer Days
There aren't many things we enjoy trying in our store more than some richly aromatic, textured white wines, particularly going towards the warmer Christmas season. Bask in the bright, fragrant palate of the J. Boxler Blanc or the crisp chalky acidity of the George Deschamps Chablis, both making for pitch-perfect aperitifs with an entrée before dinner! As always though, special mention must go to the three whites from Pieropan - considered by many, including ourselves, to be the top-quality drop when it comes to Soave. The classico is always a popular seller for us, working beautifully as a table white while offering that extra complexity and quality one would expect from the finest in Soave, but special mention should go to the Calvarino and La Rocca. The Calvarino offers the easier-going palate of the two, with a light floral nose of jasmine and citrus, while the La Rocca is more crunchy and deeply-textured with nutty and ripe tropical fruit that keep giving and peeling away long after you take the sip.
 
2018 J. Boxler Pinot Auxerrois Blanc - $26 per bottle ; RRP $30
Notes of bright, white fruit and subtle toast greets the nose, with hints of florals. The palate is fresh and lively and continues to offer floral and crisp fruit, with the whole balanced by a light smokiness brought by the judicious use of old oak and texture from fine lees aging.

2020 Pieropan Soave Classico  - $33 per bottle ; RRP $39
"Fragrant and delicious, this opens with heady aromas of white spring flower, citrus and tropical fruit. Vibrant and tangy, the savory palate doles out juicy grapefruit, white peach and lemon drop before a saline mineral finish. Bright acidity keeps it crisp and balanced. Editors' Choice" - 94 Points, Wine Enthusiast

2019 Georges Deschamps Chablis  - $42 per bottle ; RRP $49
This is a deliciously fragrant Chablis with the characteristic flintiness and mineral backbone the appellation is known and loved for. Juicy, energetic and crisp, this wine has delicate notes of struck match, pink grapefruit, apricot, white peach and pear, offering an aromatic complexity few in Chablis can deliver. Long finish, full of texture and ‘chalky’ grip. A superb example of organic Chablis.

2019 Pieropan Soave Calvarino  - $49 per bottle ; RRP $56
"Gooseberry and apple pie on the nose and palate with white flower petals and a fascinating rose-water, almost turkish-delight note. Full, round and very silky with fresh acidity driving the complex flavors. Long, tight and so focused. Saline aftertaste. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold." - 94 Points, James Suckling

 
2019 Pieropan Soave La Rocca  - $60 per bottle ; RRP $68
Following a brief skin maceration, fermentation takes place in tonneaux before transfer to 20hl barrels, where it is aged on fine lees for one year. Intense, sunny yellow in colour, the nose recalls ripe exotic fruit and roasted nuts, the multi-layered palate is complex with beautifully balanced richness and outstanding length. 
Starward Unexpeated Single Malt Peated Whisky 700mL - $149
 
You’ve never tried a Starward whisky like this before. Peated, smoky whisky barrels meet red-wine-barrel-aged single malt. Islay, Scotland melds with Melbourne, Australia. And old worlds and new worlds collide.

In each sip of Unexpeated, ripe red berries meet a coastal peat smoke. Sweet peat lingers in the aroma and lengthy finish.
