Collection: New Aussie Arrivals

Noel is just back from the annual Australia Day Tasting in London, so this felt like the prefect time to turn the spotlight onto some top-rated wines from Torbreck, Yalumba, Duval and Yangarra. These wines have just landed with us and each one is a cracker.

Torbreck Vintners 'The Descendant' 2020

"Gobsmacking. A raptor on nose and palate, locking on without hesitation. An insane iodine and black fruit perfume conjures up images of a dementedly talented parfumier going to work with the rarest musks and scents. The sense of heady Balkan tobacco alone is hypnotic. I have waited a long time for this wine to move from a ‘high-gold’ to perfection, and it happened in one fell swoop in 2020. Shiraz co-fermented with 9% Viognier." 100 pts Matthew Jukes, Decanter

Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz 2018

A long term NYW favourite, making a return after a while. A tip off from old friend Rolf Binder and then tasted at the Australia Day tasting in London reminded me just how good this wine can be and the 2018 is an absolute cracker!!

"The fruit forms a perfect dovetail: the enveloping, mouth-filling abundance of the Shiraz, neatly wedged into the folds of the structuring and shapely Cabernet. Very impressive. This is one of the more impressive Signatures in recent times. It will cellar with grace and ease." 96 pts Erin Larkin The Wine Advocate

Yangarra Estate Old Vine Grenache 2021

Such an awesome wine. Voted Wine of The Year in the 2023 James Halliday Wine Companion, one of, if not the most respected and influential Australian wine guides.

Ex 1946 Blewitt Springs bush vines planted in a deep sandy dune that Yangarra call The Beach; dry-grown, bunch-sorted, wild yeast, open fermented and basket pressed. Bright clear though deep crimson hue; scented/perfumed, and I'm gone for all money without even tasting it. And I haven't fooled myself. Except why on earth is is only $45? Its red fruit sundae glistens with dew drops on a spider's web, yet also has a savoury echo towards the finish. – James Halliday" 99 pts

John Duval 'Annexus' Mataro 2018

I tried this recently and was absolutely blown away, floral, perfumed and fresh. Fabulous intense berry fruits, spice, pepper, meaty notes, integrated oak and a long finish. Textural, silky and i thought absolutely superb.

Drunk again on Wednesday night for my Dad's 80th and it was a star performing wine amongst many top bottles. Brilliant!! Mourvedre/Mataro gets no better than this.

"It's all about putting the spotlight on fruit from a dry-grown centenarian vineyard in Light Pass. I love this. It's a commanding wine. It oscillates between deep, dark, spicy fruit to savoury, meaty flavours. It's long and pure, with poised yet determined tannins. I doubt mataro gets any better than this. Respect." 97 pts Gold Jane Faulkner James Halliday Wine Companion
