Corang Estate Hilltops Shiraz 2019

Intense purple red, clear and bright in colour. Lifted aromas of black fruits with vanilla oak, white pepper spice and peppermint notes adding to the complexity. There are soft tannins and white pepper at the front, with layers of blackcurrant and red fruits evident, well-integrated oak is balanced with clean acid and a long finish. Stephen Read

Allegiance Wines The Artisan Reserve Barossa Valley Shiraz 2019

Deep dark red in colour. Red berry fruits with a hint of spice on the nose. The palate explodes with ripe red berry that is nothing short of intense. Delicate but firm pepper and spice add to the mix, while the dexterous use of oak is evident. Soft but grippy tannins wrap the parcel on the finish. A big, full bodied and complex wine that is quintessential Barossa shiraz. Should have no trouble going around for another 10 years. Leo Daly

Clear and starbright, intense deep red purple in colour. On the nose there is lifted peppery spice, lots of red fruits, vanilla and smoky oak all in balance. Complex, luscious and balanced, the palate starts with soft tannins, followed with pepper spice at the front. Intense red fruits fill the middle with well-integrated oak, finishing long, lingering and clean. To get the best from this wine cellar for 10 + years. Stephen Read

Allegiance Wines Alumni Eden Valley Riesling 2020

True to style and region, the nose is complex, subtle with white stone fruit, lime citrus and hints of minerality, herbaceous and interesting. In the mouth it is lively and fresh, with complex layered fruit, zesty acid cleans up the back and gives a long lingering finish. Enjoy now but will benefit from 10 + years in the cellar if you like aged Rieslings. Stephen Read

The colour is light straw. The nose is tight but hints of citrus and white peach arrive. The palate is complex and it is true to its regional and varietal character. Layers of crisp lime lay a backbone for punchy sorbet and a tight mineral underbelly that finishes long and persistent. A faultless example of Eden Valley riesling that will develop with age, but why wait? It’s drinking beautifully just now! Leo Daly

Kindred Pinot Grigio 2020

This Pinot Grigio from the Riverina shows how good this variety can be from this region. Medium straw in colour with subtle aromas of mixed citrus, peach and a hint of pear. The palate delivers citrus and pear fruit in the middle, balanced with tight green apple acid at the finish. This wine is well made and enjoyable. Stephen Read

This wine is very pale with just a hint of straw, leading to aromas of tropical fruit with hints of citrus and nectarine, herbaceous nuances add to the complexity.
