2017 Tay­lors Promised Land Shi­raz

Once Syd­ney pub­li­cans, the Tay­lor clan’s move to wine in the Clare Val­ley proved seam­less and ex­ceed­ingly suc­cess­ful. Ex­tra­or­di­nary value comes with this very ap­proach­able shi­raz, with the va­ri­ety’s trade­mark ap­peal in glow­ing ev­i­dence, its rich, savoury flavours en­hanced with a touch of oak.

2017 McLeish Semil­lon

This bou­tique Hunter Val­ley pro­ducer con­tin­ues to punch high above its weight, its se­quence of multi-tro­phy win­ning semil­lon vin­tages be­ing lauded at home and abroad. Crafted by lo­cal topliner An­drew Thomas, this lat­est fresh, invit­ing re­lease is des­tined to keep the awards rolling in.

2016 McGuigan The Short­list Chardon­nay

Ade­laide Hills fruit is the source of this con­tem­po­rary style chardon­nay se­lected by Wines­tate magazine at its 2017 wine of the year. Fea­tur­ing an al­lur­ing ar­ray of fruit flavours and gen­tle oak, it shows why chardon­nay has re­claimed its No. 1 white man­tle af­ter a pe­riod of dis­ap­point­ment.

2012 Rymill Mat­u­ra­tion Re­lease Caber­net Sauvi­gnon

This fa­mous Coon­awarra win­ery de­layed this wine’s re­lease un­til wine­maker San­drine Gi­mon was ab­so­lutely sure it was in pris­tine con­di­tion. The good news is that it has met her strin­gent mat­u­ra­tion guide­lines, of­fer­ing a five-star pre­sen­ta­tion of gen­er­ous soft, rich and lin­ger­ing fruit flavours.
