XO Wine Co Adelaide Hills Barbera 2017

Extraordinarily red and deep cherry in colour, the nose is bright, uncomplicated and typical of the grape variety. On the palate it reveals an herbaceous earthiness with a finely balanced acidity. A wine that demonstrates that Barbera does indeed deserve more of our attention. Greg Swift.

XO Wine Co Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2016

A great example of cool climate Adelaide Hills chardonnay, pale straw in colour with subtle green hues. The nose is perfumed and complex, showing hints of peppermint candy, melon and crisp, green apple. On the palate there is a long lasting french oak overtone intertwined with a minerality and restrained acidity. A wine that will further develop over the next few years. Greg Swift.

Allegiance Wines Unity Margaret River Chardonnay 2017

The wine presents with a light, straw colour and impressive lucidity. The nose introduces aromas of melon and dried pear, vanilla bean and hazelnut. On the palate an immediate and elegant mouth filling creaminess ensues which is balanced with nut and fruit overtones. This wine has a wonderful balance and a big future. Give it a couple of years. Greg Swift.

Star bright and pale straw in colour. Intense but subtle nose with complex stone fruit, vanilla, citrus and toasty oak. Entices you to try this wine. In the mouth it delivers what you would expect. Tight vibrant tropical fruit, citrus, melon, nuttiness, balanced by creamy acid and subtle toasty oak. Well balanced with great length of finish. Will improve with cellaring for 2 to 8 years. Stephen Read.
