Wine Pilot 95 points. Cellar Door Price 60 aud. The land grant on the historic Rowland Flat property was proclaimed by the Governor in 1847. Cracking Rhone style blend but all Barossa in flavour. Before we get into the ins and outs, the price for this wine seems to sit around the $60 mark, give or take. First, that is cracking value for such a delicious wine, but consider that the current release of Grange is 2018. This is two years older and a squillionth of the price. Not suggesting it is a better wine than the current Grange, but for anyone looking for value with an older release, look no further (the current Grange is $1,000 a bottle in...

James Halliday 98 points. "When placed next to '16 O'Riada, the colour seems light (though bright), but the perfumed, spicy bouquet with red flowers and fruits doesn't prepare you for the intensity and piercing length of the beautifully balanced medium-bodied palate. This is a truly glorious wine that draws you back again and again to explore the wealth of red fruit flavours, and the majesty of its textures and flavours."

The Shiraz Vioginer is a selection of the best Shiraz Viognier parcels, crafted from the Murrumbateman vineyard. One of the greatest vintages of this wine. It has a super complex array of white and black peppers, hard brown spices, leaves, flowers and fresh wet earth, as well as graphite-like dark stony notes. The palate is immaculately detailed, long and silky with flavors of blackberries, red cherries, red plums, dark cherries, blackberries and dark chocolate. The palate is delivered with steady elegance and power, showing unwavering build and a seemingly never-ending trail of fresh and spicy fruit flavors. With the most immaculate...

It’s one of those wines that feels beautiful let alone tastes delicious. Lighter weight style with all the structure. Super stuff here." Halliday Wine Companion, 95 points. The tension between tannin, acidity, savoury nuances and fruit is high. It feels as though all the components here are sitting straight and alert. Earth, rust,...

Noon Eclipse Grenache Shiraz 2018 (WA 96)

SG$81
SG$81

Wine Advocate 96 points. As usual since 2011, the wine is dominated by Grenache, from vines planted in 1934 and 1943. Shiraz and Graciano from younger vines (planted 1998–2001) comprise 10–20% of the blend. The 2018 Eclipse features lovely herbal inflections and hints of apricot/stone fruit layered over ripe cherries. This open-knit, full-bodied effort adds hints of dark chocolate on the palate. Silky, long and delicious, with a softly dusty finish, it should drink well for another 10–15 years. JC Feb 2021. #COMP

Standish "The Relic" Shiraz Viognier 2019 (SM 99-100)

SG$130
SG$130

Stuart McCloskey 99-100 points. "Ripe black fruits tinged with orange rind flood the palate. Totally effortless, sensual, precise and without fault. An astonishing wine and one that will provide 50 years of pleasure..." James Suckling 94 points. "Aromas of blackberry and dark chocolate with toasted spices, cherry, raspberry coulis and vanilla. Like a liquid black forest cake. Rippling with intensity and concentration, the palate has very soft and satiny tannins that sit smoothly into the finish. Sultry. Drink over the next five years." #CLEAR

Turkey Flat Barossa Valley Mataro 2018 (JH 91)

SG$40
SG$40

A bright crimson, this rich red has a strident step across boysenberry and cherry ripe flavours before the ferruginous growl of tannins kick in, imparting a savoury glow of dried tobacco and ironstone to Barossa's postcode of fruit sweetness, ample oak (50% new, all French, 6 months... and a bit obtuse) and extract. 91 points. Ned Goodwin Published 21 March 2022 VARIETY 100% MATARO 9TH RELEASE Encounters with unblended Australian Mataro (also known as Mourvèdre) are rare. The origins of Mataro are almost certainly Spanish where it is often called Monastrell. It is the principal black grape of the five appellations that cluster on Spain's...

Turkey Flat Barossa Valley Mataro 2021

SG$45
SG$45

Mataro was brought to Australia by James Busby in 1832 from Perpignan in the Roussillon in southern France and has shown its suitability to the Barossa Valley climate exceptionally well ever since. The broad appeal to Mataro lies in its earthy ruggedness and ability to show finesse and structure. While often used as a blending component, at Turkey Flat we feel Mataro deserves to star in its own right as a single varietal

Turkey Flat Butcher's Block Red (Shz Gren M) 2018 (WF 94)

SG$36
SG$36

Gary Walsh, The Wine Front , 94 points.. Dark cherries, black raspberry, liquorice and spice. Full of flavour, but less than full-bodied, chocolate, earth and spice, succulence and depth, fine almost brick dust tannin, a bit of a ‘mineral’ feel, and very good length. Something like black forest cake flavour in the aftertaste, and other things too, of course. What a bargain. Tasted: Oct 2019; Alcohol: 14.2%;Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2019-2028+; Rated: 94 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front. . James Halliday Wine Companion 93 points. Grenache 49%, shiraz 35%, mataro 16%.

Two Hands Brave Faces Grenache Mataro Shiraz 2020

SG$42
SG$42

WINERY COMMENTS: What a difference a couple of generations can make. In the mid 1980s South Australia’s old Grenache, Mourvèdre and Shiraz vines were being removed due to a lack of demand. Brave Faces is a tribute to the men and women that loyally tended their vineyards, allowing them to remain intact today. “Brave faces face the boardroom, the oak stained walls fall silent, they leave lined with defeat, and they got those tears in their eyes, well it makes no sense to me.” Brave Faces MIDNIGHT OIL, 1981 Colour: Deep purple in colour with a flicker of red hue Aroma: The nose is bright and fresh with dark cedar, ripe cherry, dried...
