Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel 2019 Time to Go Bonkers for Bogle! From an iconic wine family - the Bogles are a sixth generation farming family. The first generation in 1870 moved to California from Tennessee and set about trying to grow cherries, peaches, and pears. Sadly, that failed for the Bogles, but better things were to follow. The fourth generation, in 1968, planted 20 aces of grapes and grew for other wineries in the region. In 1979 they built the winery, that still stands today, and produced their own labels. With all this experience & passion the Bogle farmers & winemakers know a thing or two about guaranteeing unrivalled quality for value.
Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel is made from, well, you guessed it, fruit from old vines! These gnarly head-trained and dry farmed old beauties produce low yields of small, concentrated clusters of fruit, makes for incredibly intense and flavoursome wines. Aromas of fresh picked raspberries and white peppercorns reveal on the nose. Followed by saturated mixed berry fruit flavours & tangy cranberries. In the middle palate there’s a hint of savoury herb with raisin & liquorice richness. The traditional notes of juniper lead to a full and ripe finish, while 12 months of aging in American oak barrels wraps the wine in luscious warm spice toneswith a touch of chocolatey vanilla.
Hawkshead Pinot Noir 2021 Is a boutique Central Otago winery started by Denis Marshall & his partner Ulrike Kurenback when they bought some land in Gibbston, next to Valli Winery, in 1995, and after a wait, planted vines in 2001. Previously this property has been part of a merino sheep farm called Watiri Station. Initially, plantings were just Pinot Noir, but then Pinot Gris, Riesling and more recently Pinot Blanc were added. Their vision for growing vines with minimal interference to the natural environment meant they were able to create a sustainable, artisan winery coupled with the legendary winemaking skills of Dean Shaw, they were able to deliver vintages of the greatest character.
“Clearly, 2020 was a good vintage for Gibbston if this wine is any indication. Pinot noir with purity, power, and a strong sense of place. Red cherry and berry and fresh herb flavours underpinned by juicy acidity.” 93/100 Bob Campbell MW

Paul Jaboulet Aîné Parallele 45 Cotes du Rhone 2020 Originally founded by Antoine Jabouletin 1834 with a focus on quality which really established the area as one of the major wine producing regions of the world. The land was passed on to his sons Henri and Paul, who subsequently gave his name to the company – Paul Jaboulet Ainé (Ainé meaning the elder in French). As the business was passed down from generation to generation, they expanded byplanting more vineyards in other appellations along the Rhone Valley. They now have over 120 hectares, producing fine wines from twenty-six other appellations. Also, they produce some of the best Côtes du Rhone wines, with Parellèle 45 well known for over-delivering on price. In 2006, Jean-Jacques Frey bought Paul Jaboulet Aîné. The Frey family have become increasingly important in the French wine industry. Caroline Frey is the winemaker and viticulturist for Paul Jaboulet Aîné. Fast becoming one of the top winemakers in France, she is following biodynamic practices and with the installation of a brand-new gravity flow winery she is producing stunning wines, striving to make them better and better each year.
Taking its name from the 45th parallel which runs just two kms from the cellars of Maison Paul Jaboulet. This is a typical southern Rhone blend of Grenache 55%, Syrah 40%, and mixed grape varietals (Mourvedre, Carignan, Cinsault) 5%. Deep red cherry and spiced berry notes on the nose. This has a smooth mouthfeel where the soft tannins subtly coat the mouth. There's spice and soft, chewy fruit on the palate. It's balanced and very luscious packing a punch in terms of fruit flavour but doesn't feel heavy on the palate.
Knappstein Shiraz 2020 From the celebrated Clare Valley producer who knows a thing or two about making a sexy Shiraz – one that is not only elegant but incredibly affordable for this level of quality. Steeped in history and synonymous with the Clare Valley in South Australia, the Knappstein Enterprise Winery has enjoyed a long and revered reputation as a maker of premium wines. In fact, the Knappstein name has been involved in the wine business in South Australia since 1895. Showcasing Knappstein & Clare Valley's strengths when it comes to Shiraz, this wine is all about style and texture. Ripe black fruit, mint and liquorice underpin the rich textual palate with velvety tannins and a kick of vibrant acidity stretching out the flavours. “The regular Knappstein Shiraz and Cabernet are among The Real Review’s Top Value Wines of Australia. Good for a few years in a cool cellar, or a box under the bed.” The Real Review, Huon Hooke
Mont’albano Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2020 Somehow Italians seem to do it betterJ This vino bellissimo will not disappoint for many diverse occasions. Coming from FattoriaMont’Albano in Abruzzo which spans 25 acres within a protected game reserve. The three large vineyards produce the highest quality fruit. The Italian wine industry has been on the front foot with organic viticulture much longer than many, and Mauro Braidot at Mont’Albano is a classic case of that, having converted his vineyards in 1985. Sourced from vineyards located in Canzano, Teramo, in the famed Abruzzo region in central Italy, lying to the west of the Adriatic sea.
This excellent Montepulciano has freshness & vibrancy thanks to the wine not seeing any oak until a proportion is aged in second use French oak barrels for softness & complexity. The wine is then blended prior to bottling & released. A lovely medium to full bodied wine withexcellent acidity. It has lifted aromatics boasting ripe cherry, blackberries, blackcurrants, and cloves. The palate shows plush fruit flavours of red & blackberries, a twist of black pepper and a generous mouth feel thanks to a little structure in the wine, & a subtle spicy finish. A lush & juicy wine. Perfectly balanced with supple tannins.
