NVMorgans Bay Sparkling Cuvee
This sparkling cuvee is made from a blend of varietals perfect for sparkling wine. A great match to any meal
Mildura Vic89/100$30.00
NVTaylor Ferguson Premimum Brut Cuvee
Lively bouquet, fresh fruity characters on the palate. Crisp and clean with a dry finish.
South Eastern Aust89/100$30.00
NVSalinger Premium Cuvee
Classic Salinger, contrasting crisp, primary lemon and red apple fruit with a honeyed dosage and creamy bead. Fruit integrity and persistence
take the lead in this youthful and primary blend of pinot noir, chardonnay and meunier
Great Western Vic91/100$40.00
2011Salinger Henty Vintage Cuvee
Light to medium straw colour with a brassy tinge. The bouquet is quite complex and shows some tirage age. It's nutty, lightly toasty and savoury,
with meringue and rich smoky pinot aromas, to which a touch of strawberry is added when the wine is in the mouth. It's a little confectionery-like
also. The acidity is well-balanced and the finish is nicely weighted, with low phenolics. It's clean and refreshing.
Great Western Vic93/100$45.00
NVBleasdale Sparkling Shiraz
Deep red colour with the last vestiges of purple tint. Ripe plummy bouquet, clean and fresh, and not shrill or simplistic. A tinge of spice, earth and faint chocolate. The palate is full, and round, soft and smooth, balanced and clean on the finish with a touch of cleansing tannin. There's plenty of sweetness mid-palate, then a clean, drying finish.
Langhorne Creek SA91/100$45.00
NVDomaine Chandon Brut
Bright green-straw, tangy chardonnay prevailing over the softer pinot, some brioche/nougat notes, long, clean finish. Like all domaine sparkling wines, is a methode traditionelle.
Yarra Valley Vic93/100$50.00
2004Yellowglen Exceptional Vintage Piccadilly
Pale straw-green, the mousse good; remarkably fresh, fine and focused, given its seven years on yeast lees; apple, citrus and yeasty brioche aromas are followed by a supple, long and balanced palate, bringing together all the elements of the bouquet. Traditional method used for this 66/34% blend of pinot noir and chardonnay.
South East Victoria93/100$60.00
2011Domaine Chandon Vintage Brut

2012Flametree S.R.S Wilyabrup Cabernet Sauvignon
The immediate and striking strength of the wine is its extreme length and purity, a siren allure that may lead many to drink it long before it
reaches its plateau of ultimate perfection; high quality grapes have been handled with admirable sensitivity by winemaker Cliff Royle.
Margaret River WA97/100$65.00
2009Voyager Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
Deepish red colour with a purple tint. Crisp, crushed mulberry and dusty cedary aromas. This is more black fruits and richly ripe flavour than the
Voyager Project cabernet. Full-bodied, weighty, and deep, with amplitude, length and generosity.
Margaret River WA96/100$70.00
2011Lueewin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep red/purple hue. Marvellous smoky, toasty barrel and blackberry fruit aromas neatly entwined, a trace of charcoal, and briar, while the palate is singularly impressive, with great power and length and superbly lavish, supple tannins.
Margaret River WA97/100$80.00
2012Xanadu Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep red/purple colour; bright and youthful. Dusty young bouquet with subdued but slowly emerging blackberry and blackcurrant fruit. It's powerful and very strongly structured on palate; the fruit is classic dark berries and violets, backed by firm high-quality tannins. It all lingers with great persistence.

2009Vasse Felix Heytesbury Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep purple/red colour. Dense, rich black fruit aromas and flavours; sublime, seamless fruit and tannin integration, tremendous structure
and length. Very young and promising, but also remarkably approachable now. A top vintage.
Margaret River WA97/100$90.00
2010Houghton Gladstones Cabernet Sauvignon
Bright, clear crimson; as befits its name, a very distinguished and expressive wine from the first whiff of its bouquet through to the finish with
ultra-classic cassis and redcurrant fruit that easily carries the fine-grained tannins and high quality oak
Margaret River WA97/100$100.00
2010Cullen Diana Madeline Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
Vanya Cullen has taken a gentle approach with all aspects of the wine. It is medium-bodied, but is perfectly balanced and its array of
blackcurrant, redcurrant, earth and spice fruit flavours, its medium-bodied elegance setting it in a league of its own.
Margaret River WA96/100$125.00
2009Wynns John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon
Strong colour, a very potent, deeply layered, full-bodied wine in which all of the expected Coonawarra cabernet characters
of blackcurrant, blackberry, mulberry, earth and mint, very classy oak and fine, ripe tannins.
