Lit­tle Wil­liam Langhorne Creek Shi­raz 2015, $40. Lit­tle Wil­liam is the English trans­la­tion of the fam­ily name of the mak­ers, Guglielmino, which sounds un­can­nily like a grape va­ri­ety. Good things come in small ... Wil­liams. 9.3/10. Lit­tle Wil­liam Ade­laide Hills Mon­tepul­ciano 2015, $40. Wow, that’s old for a Monte’, and you can taste the ex­pe­ri­ence ... or ex­pe­ri­ence the taste. De­light­ful and would love to see what it’s like in 2021. 9.2/10. Church Road Hawkes Bay Chardon­nay 2017, $27. They’re a re­li­gious lot in Hawkes Bay but this would be bet­ter with a cheese plate than a col­lec­tion plate. Save your palate be­fore your soul. 9/10. Church Road Hawkes Bay (NZ) Pinot Gris 2018, $26. This is a fairly pricey gris and lovers of the bit­ter­sweet grape will go silly for it, and sil­lier the more they im­bibe. 8.8/10. Robert Oat­ley Mar­garet River Wine­mak­ers Re­serve Caber­net Sau­vi­gnon 2017, $23. A big-name wine fig­ure thought this was the bee’s knees. I couldn’t go that far, maybe the bee’s an­kles. Al­most as wor­thy, per­haps a bee’s whisker in it. 9.1/10. Robert Oat­ley Mar­garet River Wine­mak­ers Re­serve Chardon­nay 2017, $23. This is older school chardon­nay so in­vite your granny or an old girl­friend and they will love you … and the wine. 8.8/10.
