Château Riotor Cote de Provence Rosé 2018-Current Promotions-World Wine
Château Riotor Cote de Provence Rosé 2018

World Wine – Pale pink. Strawberry, orange zest and white pepper aromas and flavors, joined by a subtle floral nuance in the glass. Minerally and taut in the mouth, loosening up with air and showing good energy. Finishes with good, stony lift and vivacity, leaving a red berry note behind.

Cullen Diana Madeline 2018-Current Promotions-World Wine
Cullen Diana Madeline 2018

World Wine – I've been waiting for this wine to be released, knowing how good the 2018 vintage was in Margaret River. In fact, it goes further than my lofty expectations. Super-concentrated deep blackcurrant, mulberry and dark, plummy, chocolate flavours. There is an extraordinary brightness and vitality on the nose with exotic violet perfumes. Impeccably poised. A wine that will drink well into the second half of this century. - Ray Jordan, The West Australian


James Suckling – The 2018 Diana Madeline (99 points) is one of the stars of this report and one the greatest editions of this wine yet released. Cullen herself likens it to the legendary 2001 vintage, a wine that is defined by both power and finesse. Both are certainly hallmark traits of this stunning 2018 which stands as a shining example of refinement in Margaret River. This is a superb edition of this revered, cabernet-based blend with such complete, seamless and elegant feel, yet there’s such depth of flavor, too. Aromas of fresh redcurrants, red and violet flowers, subtle spice, fresh earth, paper bark, fresh-picked thyme and sage, red berries and some cedary notes. The palate is stunning and has a brand of elegance with power that is found in only the greatest wines. Pristine mulberries, red plums, blueberries and red cherries sail through layers of fine tannin, into an unwaveringly long and vibrant finish. An exceptionally concentrated and convincing Diana Madeline release, this is one of their finest. A blend of 79% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot, 6% cabernet franc and 5% malbec. Delicious now, but his will bloom from 2028. - Nick Stock,


Huon Hooke – Deep, bright, youthful, concentrated purple/red colour which stains the glass. The aroma is fresh and young, fruit-driven and impressively concentrated; essency, with masses of blueberry, cassis, violet and blackberry flavours, underlined by a firm tannin backbone. There is cedar aplenty and loads of cabernet character. The tannins are very firm and it needs more time to mellow. The concentration has ramped up to a new level here. A high-quality wine of enormous potential. (79% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot, 6% cabernet franc, 5% malbec, aged in 50% new oak). - Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Massolino Moscato D'Asti DOC 2018-White Wine-World Wine
Massolino Moscato D'Asti DOC 2018

World Wine – Intensely aromatic, this opens with tantalizing scents of citrus blossom, yellow peach and aromatic herb. The creamy, foaming palate offers apricot, candied tangerine zest, lemon drop and a note of crystallized ginger. Bright acidity and a hint of thyme lift the rich flavours.

Calo Rioja Tempranillo 2018-Red Wine-World Wine
Calo Rioja Tempranillo 2018

World Wine – A lovely drink, at an excellent price. Attractively packaged too. Vibrant and lively but with some guts, some grind. Violets, black and red berries, cola, jubey blackcurrant. Love the firmness through the finish. The suggestion of vanillin. The perfumed aromatics. The fresh-but-controlled feel. You’d go this, for sure.

Domaine Seguinot Bordet Petit Chablis 2019

Jancis Robinson – 'Screwcap. There’s a light creamy sweetness on the nose, as well as that lees freshness that is so hard to describe. Lovely balance of ripe lemon fruit, fresh pears and zesty grapefruit-like acidity. Lots of wine for the price.' - Julia Harding MW,

Chateau Flamand-Bellevue Bordeaux Rouge 2018-Red Wine-World Wine
Chateau Flamand-Bellevue Bordeaux Rouge 2018

World Wine – Garnet red to purplish disc, good depth and clear. Expressive nose of ripe fruit, dominated by blackcurrant and strawberry purée with cedar notes. The attack is fresh and lively, the palate is round, fleshy with sap and tension. Nice length with ripe tannins and fine allies at a gourmet fruit.

Sons of Eden Zephyrus Barossa Valley Shiraz 2018-Red Wine-World Wine
Sons of Eden Zephyrus Barossa Valley Shiraz 2018

James Halliday – "96 Points. Fruit from eight vineyards across the Barossa and Eden valleys, anywhere from 10-60% whole bunches depending on the batch, 3 weeks on skins and all French oak, 45% new. The wine stands out. Spice, fruit, pepper and wood smoke flavours explode onto the palate and ramp the seduction from there. It's both supple and fresh, but the fruit power is obvious. In short, it's really good. 14.5% alc. To 2034. - Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion 2020.

Rippon "Rippon" Mature Vine Pinot Noir 2018-Red Wine-World Wine
Rippon "Rippon" Mature Vine Pinot Noir 2018

James Suckling – Dried strawberries, mushrooms, bark and flowers on the nose. It changes all the time! Full-bodied with intense yet refined tannins that drive the center palate to a long and almost endless finish. Great length. Great wine as always! Impressive to taste now, but this will be even better in three to five years. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Reviewed - Wednesday, October 6, 2021

Glenguin Vineyard Semillon 2018-White Wine-World Wine
Glenguin Vineyard Semillon 2018

World Wine – 'This is a seriously good semillon, just starting to open up and drink well, and will continue to do so for many years. The palate is juicy and ripe, fresh and clean and bright, with delicious lemon/herb fruit and a compelling juiciness. Already eminently drinkable.' 95 points - Gourmet Traveller Wine


Huon Hooke – 'Light straw-yellow colour. The aromas are superbly fresh and intense, youthful and bright, with herb and lemon aromas of real charm. The palate is juicy and ripe, fresh and clean and bright, with delicious lemon and herb and a compelling juiciness. It's fresh, youthful, reserved and not at all austere or tight. The acidity is perfectly balanced, the wine is eminently drinkable now and will certainly age well. A seriously good young semillon.' 95 points - Huon Hooke,

Blank Canvas Sauvignon Blanc 2021-White Wine-World Wine
Blank Canvas Sauvignon Blanc 2021

World Wine – "#1 New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc "A full-bodied Sauvignon that fills the mouth with an array of fresh fruit flavors, from Braeburn apples and lemon to pineapple and green capsicum. There's good substance here, giving you something to get your teeth into while the acidity creates an energy almost like a headlight's full beam turned on in your mouth. Bloody good." - Rebecca Gibb MW (Vinous)


Huon Hooke – "From the well-drained fertile soils of Dillons Point. Rich, concentrated sauvignon blanc with green capsicum, passionfruit, subtle box hedge flavours and a pleasing saline-mineral character. Good purity and mouth-watering, fruity acidity." - Bob Campbell (The Real Review)

Tahbilk Museum Cabernet Sauvignon 2009-Red Wine-World Wine
Tahbilk Museum Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

James Halliday – "Positive red-purple, still youthful; blackcurrant, earth, spice and cedar run through the bouquet and medium- to full-bodied palate, which has considerable drive and length, tannins perfectly pitched. In its infancy, its future assured." James Halliday ~

Pietradolce Etna Bianco DOC ‘Archineri’ 2018-White Wine-World Wine
Pietradolce Etna Bianco DOC ‘Archineri’ 2018

World Wine – 94 Points - Vinous "Very pale straw color. Gorgeous nose of white peach, lime, minerals and jasmine. Then fresh and crisp, but with an underlying glyceral note that provides backbone to the zingy citrus and pomaceous orchard fruit flavors. Finishes extremely long with strong notes of fresh ginger and an underpinning of mineral dust. An outstanding Etna Bianco. " Ian D'Agata - (Aug 2019)


James Suckling – 11 Aug, 2019 – "Freshly sliced lemons, guava peel, green apples and spices. Medium body, fine layering of acidity and a floral, pretty finish. Drink now."


Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – "The 2018 Etna Bianco Archineri is slightly rounder and more robust (compared to the entry-level Etna Bianco) with rich aromas of white peach and melon. This mid-weight expression is also creamier and more intricate in terms of texture, and much of this is due to the advanced age of the pre-Phylloxera vines used to make Archineri, some of which are over 130 years old. This wine delivers a larger center of gravity, and it lacks that super chiseled sharpness and delineation you get in the other Bianco. This bottle reveals a more sophisticated approach and longer cellar-aging potential. Only 5,000 bottles were made." - Monica Larner (31st Jul 2019)

Tahbilk Museum Shiraz 2009-Red Wine-World Wine
Tahbilk Museum Shiraz 2009

James Halliday – Bright, clear crimson-purple; subtle changes in the approach to making Tahbilk's red wines (and the use of screwcap) has lifted all the wines a notch; here positive oak embraces blackberry, black cherry and plum fruit, the tannins evident but soft - one of the most obvious hallmarks of the change.

Cullen Diana Madeline 2019-Red Wine-World Wine
Cullen Diana Madeline 2019

The Wine Front – "Incredible power and concentration here, and yet, still lithe and so finely wrought. It’s ultra-mineral in feel with iron and dense graphite tannin, but perfumed and spice-laden too. The quality and feel of tannin here is something quite extraordinary. Plum and dark cherry, dark tobacco, whiff of empty chocolate box, superb length of flavour. Essence of Cabernet. Essential Cabernet. We’ve never had it so good.” - Gary Walsh - 98pts

Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Côtes du Rhône Lieu-dit Clavin 2017-Red Wine-World Wine
Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Côtes du Rhône Lieu-dit Clavin 2017

World Wine – "...the 2017 Côtes Du Rhône Lieu-Dit Clavin reveals a deep purple color as well as classic notes of black licorice, blackcurrants, ground pepper, and earth. Medium to full-bodied, with plenty of tannins yet beautiful fruit, it needs 2-4 years of bottle age, but it’s beautiful stuff and I’d wager one of the best Côtes Du Rhône out there" Jeb Dunnuck

Best's Great Western Rosé 2019-Rosé Wine-World Wine
Best's Great Western Rosé 2019

The Wine Front – "Made using shiraz, pinot meunier and pinot noir. Deliciousness writ large. It crackles through the glass in spice-sparked style but it’s also perfumed and generous. Pomegranate, red cherry, sandalwood and all those spice notes. A dry, perfumed road. Like this quite a lot." - Mike Bennie

Tahbilk Museum Cabernet Sauvignon 2007-Red Wine-World Wine
Tahbilk Museum Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

James Halliday – "The National Trust classification of this great 19th-century winery, history seeping from every pore, is jealously guarded by Alister Purbrick. The wine has retained good hue and, while it is not quite at the Olympian level of the 2006, it is in the mainstream of the Tahbilk style, with attractive cassis, berry and earth aromas, then a medium-bodied and particularly well-balanced palate, the red and blackberry fruit supported by fine, ripe tannins. Fifteen years will not tire it." James Halliday ~

Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape les Trois Sources 2015-Red Wine-World Wine
Domaine de la Vieille Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape les Trois Sources 2015

World Wine – "Leading off the three Châteauneuf Du Papes, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Trois Sources comes from more sandy soils just across the road from the estate. It always shares more stylistic similarities with the Réserve and is more opulent, sexy, and fruit loaded compared to the Hauts-Lieux cuvée. This 2017 is spectacular, offering loads of black fruits, black licorice, ground herbs, violets, and some obvious loamy soil and mineral-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, expansive, and multi-dimensional, this is another singular wine from Jean-Paul Daumen that tastes like the essence of this stunning terroir." 95 points Jeb Dunnuck
