Louis Bouillot Perle de Vigne Grande Reserve
GOLD: CONCOURS GÉNÉRAL AGRICOLE DE PARIS
GOLD: JAPAN WINE CHALLENGE
SILVER: EFFERVESCENTS DU MONDE

A little over a week from now and we will be waving goodbye to all that was 2014 and beckoning in a new and exciting year as 2015 creeps up on us. There are rules to doing this properly though. Firstly, you have to ensure you are surrounded by those you love, second to this you have to have three resolutions that you will promise to keep in order to make 2015 a year to be remembered, but, most importantly, the golden rule for greeting a new year, is the bubbles! You HAVE to have lots and lots of bubbles! At no point during this sacred evening can your hand be empty of a glass of the sparkling juices of the gods! I didn't make the rule, but hey, who am I to argue with tradition? This delightfully elegant French bottle of bubbly is the perfect balance of sophistication and premium base wines make this a stand out French Champagne that over delivers on every measure! Flavours of vanilla, almond, toasted bread appear successively. The perfect balance between acidity and richness gives a good potential for aging. Long after taste, with a touch of honey and ginger bread,and a tight bead that will dance in your glass all night! The question is though, can you keep up?! Do yourself a favour and say good morning to 2015 in style!

Silver - International Wine Challenge: "A classic example of Coonawarra Shiraz, with alluring blackberry supported by violet and minty notes. Smoky, smooth tannins and incredible length. Very classy."
James Halliday: "94. Deep, bright crimson; restrained and savoury aromas of black fruits, sage and spicy mocha oak; the palate is medium-to full-bodied, with tightly packed tannins and fresh black fruits, offset by a lingering mocha and floral violet note to conclude."
The Shiraz coming out of Coonawarra continues to amaze us that it does not have a better reputation because this release from Katnook had us in an absolute frenzy. It’s got some real power as well as cool climate elegance and that’s what won us over, as you will discover. Aged for 15 months in American oak leaving a subtle imprint as well as raspberry and mulberry fruit, mint, pepper and spice. Layered with intense fruit before flavours of chocolate, vanilla and spice round out the palate ending with fine-grained tannins. It could only possibly go with a leg of lamb rubbed with rosemary, salt, mint and garlic.

Hill Climb Central Victoria Chardonnay 2013
When I used to work at the cellar door we noticed there was a growing trend in the ABC club (the anything but Chardonnay club). Basically, a customer would come in and we would ask them what they would like to try to which a good 80% would say, I'll try everything, but not the Chardonnay. Now, for an avid Chardy lover, this is a hard thing to hear. So I would make it my personal mission to try to "turn" as many customers as I could back toward the light to join us over in the I love Chardy club. Without a doubt, the majority of those who were initially completely adverse to the idea of even trying Chard, would usually end up leaving with a bottle. This option from Hill Climb is a good example of why throughout Australia numbers for the ABC club are dwindling!

A delightfully approachable Chardonnay chock full of fruit and rich stone fruit characters with some engaging minerality and perfect acid balance. The wine just keeps on building on the palate and develops a rich tapestry of flavour, length and varietal strength. There is plenty of well balanced oak here and a very special spice finish that brings plenty of joy. Combined with the layers of yummy nectarine and peach overtones the wine is simply stunning and will provide a rich tapestry to compliment food.

All Champagne is French but not all French is Champagne. You don’t need to spend in the vicinity of 70 or 80 bucks to get a bit of sophisticated sparkle in your life. For a mere smidgen of the price you can fuel all your party season festivities with this fizzy funster from the staggeringly beautiful Southern Coast of France. Based in the wonderfully chic peaks of Southern France, this luscious sparkling is made from a unique blend of Ugni Blanc and from Chardonnay. Brut de Chanvigne is developed in the pure respect for the Traditional Method creating an elegant French sparkling. It dances in the glass, giving off decadent aromas and flavours of honeyed toast, freshly baked brioche, earthy truffles and a whiff of spices like sugared cinnamon. All for the price of a few baguettes. Oh-la-la.

Linke Barossa Valley Shiraz 2013
I said it last time and I will say it again, each vintage of Linke just gets closer and closer to perfection. The 2013 is a real beauty though. An outstanding Barossa fruit-bomb possessing a monumental palate weight which develops yet another layer of complexity. Please buy up because if the last example is anything to go from, we will be out of stocks in no time at all. The 2012 simply ran out the door, and I can confidently say the 2013 is shaping up to give it a BIG run for its money!

Ominous from the get go , this wine has 4 stellar vintages behind it already. Opaque, dark red black colour with bright crimson hue. The nose shows great intensity with ripe dark plum and black raspberry intermixed with aniseed followed by some light toasty oak and spice. Medium to full bodied the palate possesses rich succulent flavours of dark plum, black raspberry and liquorice over a background of toasty oak with some spice on the finish. Soft supple texture with velvet smooth tannins. Long juicy aftertaste of succulent dark plums, black raspberries, star anise and spicy lightly toasted oak. Drink over the next 4-5 years.

My mother-in-law makes the best Greek styled rack of lamb I have ever had, and I've been to Greece. She marinades it overnight in this concoction of lemon herbed deliciousness and then slow cooks it for the whole day and by the time she opens the oven there is the most deliciously juicy, succulent piece of meat you will ever lay eyes on.. Carnivorous heaven right there. Well, I just tried Tisdall Shiraz and that little light bulb in my head lit up.. I think I'd better give Janey a call and tell her to pop one of those racks in the oven, I'm coming around with the perfect bottle of wine for it!

Chock-a-block full of ripe blackberry fruit with peppery eucalyptus complexity - a bold but elegant Barossan. If you like your reds full of fruit and not full of oak, this bargain option will be right in your ball park. It's a fuller-bodied, fleshy and fruity number that shows smells of blackberries and dark plums on the nose, with whiffs of pepper spice. The palate is smooth and sumptuous, with succulent dark fruit flavours, mellow tannins, and a soft, sultry finish that will have you going back for more. Excellent drinking over the next 3 to 5-years.
