The Remarkables Central Otago Chardonnay 2017
Brightly fruited and full-flavoured with a juicy acid thread balancing some textural complexity and a fleshy, generous finish. The oak is present but supporting and lends the length a lovely toastiness

Vasarelli Vineyards Family Reserve Mclaren Vale Shiraz 2016
Pat and Vicki Vasarelli don't make wine, but they grow some of the best grapes in South Australia's historic McLaren Vale district - and they also host some of the region's best lunches, using home-cured hams and salamis prepared according to recipes handed down through their Italian family. The 'Family Reserve' label is used only when the vintage is exceptional.
Right Side Of The Tracks Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Bill Brand's Right Side of the Tracks wines are considered legendary and are Coonawarra through and through. Bill's grandfather got off the train at Coonawarra in 1902 and started work at John Riddoch's winery. The family tradition has passed down over a century of Brands and this wine does not disappoint. This Cab Sav has plum and black fruit flavours and a clean lengthy palate.

Hawkesbridge Reserve Marlborough Pinot Gris 2017
This wowed the Tasting Panel as soon as the bottle was opened and quickly made the Wine of the Year Finalist list. It has classic super-ripe pear and baked apple aromas are backed by an intriguing suggestion of spicy shortbread. It has been made just off-dry, but there is an impressive amount of fruit concentration on the palate along with the variety's typically complex, oily texture. It's destined for greatness.
Mockingbird Hill Slate Lane Clare Valley Shiraz 2016
