Wakefield Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 +142398 $24.95

At release, the wine has a deep crimson red colour to the centre with a youthful purple hue to the edges. There are lifted aromas of dark cherry fruit along with subtle choc-mint and a hint of eucalypt. On the palate, this is a rich, full-bodied wine with intense flavours of cassis and blackberry fruit along with attractive oak characters of cigar box and tobacco leaf. Overall, the wine is well balanced with complex, well-integrated, elegant tannins providing structure and an intense, persistent length to the finish.

93 Pts & Gold Medal -, January 5, 2018

“Deep purple color. Herbal aromas and flavors of eucalyptus honey on spice cake, turmeric tea, and mixed berry compote with a silky, tangy, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, complex, long pomegranate-tomato relish, cedar, and nuts finish with well-integrated, chewy tannins and moderate oak. A concentrated, brooding cabernet for a hearty steak now or a long slumber in the cellar.”erb sauce, dusted with sea salt and framed with a solid structure and acidic verve.”

J. Lohr Arroyo Vista Chardonnay 2016 +171272 $34.95

Medium straw yellow in colour, this 2016 Arroyo Vista Chardonnay exhibits intriguing aromas of lemon cream, white peach, caramel, crème brûlée and toasted hazelnuts. The rich palate texture is derived from the use of classic Burgundian techniques, such as primary and malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels and weekly stirring of the lees during aging. The texture is balanced by fresh flavours of stone, citrus fruit, and baked apple, with a long, sweet oak finish.

92 Pts - Matt Kattmann, Wine Enthusiast, July 1, 2018

“Tight-grained oak aromas meet with lemon rind, lime blossom and a touch of smoke on the nose of this bottling. The savory palate is reminiscent of smoked chicken in a lemony herb sauce, dusted with sea salt and framed with a solid structure and acidic verve.”
Bodega Garzon Maldonado Reserva Tannat 2015 +558916 $19.95

A juicy, full-bodied wine. Rich purple in colour with very fresh aromas reminiscent of red and black fruits such as plums and raspberries along with a delicate spicy nose. In the mouth, it is presented with a strong personality. Its mature tannins and minerality transform it into a wine with great soil identity.

90 pts + Smart Buys - Kim Marcus,, December 15, 2017

“Well-sculpted, with dense, rich flavors of dark plum, dried blackberry and dark currant that are supported by firm tannins. Christmas pudding and rich savory notes show on the finish. Drink now through 2022. Smart Buys"
