Bold and beautiful, this is intense ruby red, has a deep floral perfume, fruit-cake richness, kitchen spice, a splash of vanilla bean and butter menthol. There’s a silky texture and then tannin and oak add substance to the wine. Amazing with a gelatinous oxtail stew.

Villa Maria 2012 Private Bin Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Light straw in colour with an up-front nose of grass and gooseberry. The palate is lively and tastes of tropical guava and kiwi fruit. Fresh and cleansing, it deserves to be drunk now and a goat’s cheese salad is an ideal accompaniment.

A label developed in the 1960’s and is still going strong, as this trophy and dual gold medal release testifies. It’s a bright straw green and is limey and juicy with crunchy acidity. An old-fashioned label with old-fashioned quality. Glorious wine with freshly-shucked oysters.

Penley Estate 2010 Phoenix $ Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

single

A great vintage in the south-east corner of SA ensures that all the necessary goodies are here. You’ll see dusty tannins, regional spearmint flavours and balanced acidity and then a winemaker’s dollop of spicy oak adds complexity to this medium-weighted package. A shoulder of lamb with this, please.

E. Guigal 2010 Côtes du Rhône (Fr)

1999

The entry-level red to the great Rhone range of Guigal wines and it’s a ripefruited beauty. There are savoury pepper and wildflower aromatics, red fleshy fruit and earthiness along with silky tannins on the palate. Sensational with red game meats, try venison.

Howard Park 2012 $ Miamup Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

This Margaret River youngster has a lively tropical fruit lift to the grassy and citrus components of the two varieties and a long zesty acidic finish. An absolute treat with a grilled fillet of white reef fish and a crunchy salad.

Dance with the Devil 2011 Shiraz Tempranillo

1999

$

single

Smart Margaret River blend of spicy earthy shiraz and savoury tannic tempranillo. The wine displays good tannin structure, a medium body, earthiness and is enjoyable now in its youth. An ideal accompaniment with barbecued chorizo sausage or a rich spicy tomato-sauce pasta.

Step Rd 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon

1799

$

A blend of cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and merlot delivers spice, plums, leafiness and licorice in this young vibrant McLaren Vale red. Toss in a little toasty oak and you have a complete wine that drinks well now and has aging ability as well. Pick a cool day and serve with a rich beef casserole.

This is a beautifully balanced mix of lemon zest and cut grass is dry and racy with a tart acidity. And that’s after you’ve been welcomed by fresh tropical fruit and citrus aromas. For drinking soon or for a few years in the bottle. Sensational with salt and pepper squid.

Deep ruby colour, fleshy black fruit, sweet vanilla oak and ripe tannins are on offer in this Langhorne Creek red, along with a waft of dusty oak. Very drinkable right now or will age well, under cork, for some years. Try with slowly-braised lamb shanks in a tomato, garlic and red wine sauce.

Vasse Felix 2012 Chardonnay

New release that will settle down and drink well with a couple of months in the bottle. It is light with citrus fruit, nutty complexities, subtle mealy characters and firm acidity. Serve with barbecued chicken with a squeeze of lemon and a dusting of your favourite seasonings.

Jansz Premium 2007 Tasmanian Sparkling

single

There’s a deep straw colour to this sparkler that’s made from the classic varieties. Shows rich toasty complexity and a round full-flavoured palate that persists to a drying acid finish. Ideal with crunchy Mandurah prawns on generously buttered, fresh rye bread.
