Bob Campbell "Bright, fresh pinot noir with floral, rose petal, cherry and subtle spice flavours. An appealing, easy-to-drink wine, with an ethereal texture and vibrant flavours. Simple and distinctive. Good varietal definition."

Bob Campbell "Gently seductive pinot noir with cherry, plum and other red fruit flavours together with violet, floral, fresh herb and mixed spice characters. Smooth-textured with a backbone of very fine tannins." (2019 vintage)

Robert Parker "Subtle cedar notes join raspberries and strawberries on the nose of the 2018 Pinot Noir. On the palate, it's a bit light and lacking texture, but it's pretty, those attractive berry shadings lingering on the tart, crisp finish." (2018 vintage)

Wine Experience "Elegant and silken with wild, dark berry flavours and gentle dried herb notes. Medium-bodied, the palate is structured and graceful with plush fruit and exceptional fruit and tannin integration which lingers in the mouth." (2016 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "This is a likable, easygoing Pinot that's fruity but not syrupy. It leads with a bowl of berries—strawberries, raspberries and cranberries—and is quickly followed by notes of baking spice, cracked pepper and violet. It's medium bodied but on the lighter end, with lifted acidity and smooth, stalky tannins. Drink now. Christina Pickard" (2016 vintage)

Wine Spectator "Smooth and creamy vanilla-scented strawberry and pomegranate flavors are lush and spicy in this red, with details of sage and matcha. Harmonious on the finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made, 200 cases imported. — MW" (2016 vintage)

The Winefront "Pretty perfume shows red cherry, raspberry jam, some plummy notes. Fruity as... bright and easy to drink..." (2016 vintage)

James Suckling "This has a wealth of violets on the nose, and there's a dry earthy edge. The palate has elemental shape and red-fruit flavors. Drink now." (2015 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "Although it starts on the oaky side, the ripe red fruit, olive and baking spice notes soon come into play. The palate integrates silky tannins with plush fruit, making this a straightforward example of Marlborough Pinot Noir." (2015 vintage)

Wine Spectator "There's a floral overtone and plenty of fresh green herbal notes to the tangy cherry flavors, with fresh green notes and tannins that firm up on the finish. Drink now. 3,000 cases made, 112 cases imported. — MW" (2015 vintage)

Robert Parker "Pale ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir gives a good intensity of ripe red cherry and red currant notes with a waft of underbrush. The medium-bodied palate delivers a great burst of uncomplicated red berry flavors with a soft structure and good persistence." (2015 vintage)

Falstaff "Medium crimson garnet, violet reflections, wider ocher rim. Red berries underlaid with tender tangerine zest, subtle herbal spices, restrained bouquet. Light-bodied, sweet strawberry confit, delicate tannins, elegant acidity, red berry finish, somewhat melting, stays short" (2012 vintage)

Marlborough based award-winning winery, Catalina Sounds is known for wines which harness the purity and vibrancy of Marlborough’s climate and landscape. The name Catalina Sounds evolved from the majestic Catalina flying boats that played a vital role across the South Pacific during and after World War II.

Marlborough is by far New Zealand's most important wine region. Situated at the north-eastern tip of the South Island, this dry, sunny region produces around three-quarters of all New Zealand wine. It is particularly famous for its pungent, zesty Sauvignon Blanc - widely considered by critics to be the best Sauvignon currently produced anywhere on the planet. Commercial-scale viticulture began in Marlborough the 1970s – it conquered the world within 25 years!

1 x Langlet Brut Grande Réserve Champagne - Champagne, France

Sommeliers International "...delicate, fine, aromatic, a touch of fruit compote. Fresh. Palate; generous. Maturity; freshness in the finish."

Dirk Schram "The entire Maison Langlet philosophy is reflected in this champagne. Light golden yellow in colour with an even, fine bubble. Flowers and exotic scents predominate in the aroma. In terms of taste, great aromatic finesse and a hint of citrus fruits follow. This is the perfect cuvée for an aperitif!"

The Winemaker “A pale gold colour with tiny, regular bubbles. Floral and exotic notes stand out in the aroma. The taste offers a wonderful aromatic finesse and a final zest of citrus. The perfect cuvée for an aperitif!”

45% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay; 20% Pinot Meunierx

Sommeliers International "...on many fine tables in Paris.

Gold Medal Wine Club "...from France’s esteemed Champagne Langlet, a progressive and ultra-modern new Champagne house located in the village of Gland on the right bank of France’s Marne Valley."

Sommeiliers International "The Langlet Champagnes are an original adventure, that of three friends, native from wine grower families of Champagne. You have Vincent Métivier, the man in the vineyard....who continuously studies his land, not yet organically farmed but with a permanent concern for nature (integrated farming, limited treatments, grass cover between the rows …); Luc Chaudon who runs a trade house whose vineyard in the Moutain of Reims mainly consist of Grand Crus and First Crus; and Frédéric Papelard, ambassador of the brand, to who we owe to find Champagne Langlet on many fine tables in Paris. “Moreish, natural, terroir driven wines…Today I supply some 400 restaurants in Paris." The range comprises 7 cuvées .... from the house’s Brut with its notes of plum and wild cherry to the Extra Brut aged in oak barrels “with aromas of roasted pine nuts and lavender honey in the finish, to be served over “an oven-baked lamb loin with rosemary” according to Best Sommelier of the World Gerard Basset."

Les Cave Des Guards "Champagne Langlet is a resolutely modern product. It is first and foremost the story of a meeting. That of Vincent Metiver, a winegrower who, between Château-Thierry and Épernay, has set up his press in the middle of the chalky plots of the vines that make up Champagne Langlet. A man who certainly learned from his elders the precise accomplishment of each stage of wine making. But who has also been able to develop the practice with “just what is needed” to protect champagne from solid organoleptic qualities, without altering the soil, the plant, or the fruit and even less the quality of the product. A product which is ultimately judiciously reasoned, harmoniously structured and originally defined. That of Luc Chaudron, an owner whose vineyard located on the Montagne de Reims consists mainly of Grand Crus and Premiers Crus. Luc is the one who oversees production including the bottles engraved with the names of the clients, decorated by renowned artists for limited editions. All champagnes are treated with a precision that makes the singular Langlet cuvées exceptional products. And then Frederic Papelard. This alliance required an esthete, plenipotentiary emissary of this new Champagne. Ambassador of the brand, with a friendly and generous openness, he brings Champagne Langlet to the sanction of the connoisseur market.

These three men, all three winegrowers and owners of their vines, are at the origin of Langlet Champagnes. They made it a product assembled in a subtle way, consensual and open to others: the friend, the artist, the poet, the one who wants the agape to be remembered ... A product that is quick to satisfy all those who, greedily, know how to decode its identity. This lineage is not the only singularity of Langlet Champagnes. “You have to be resolutely modern” said Rimbault, this is Champagne Langlet, mobile, evolving, progressive, irremediably part of the trends of its time. The huge kitchen set up in the middle of the cellar, in Gland, testifies to this desire to share the taste of celebration that we know is concentrated in these bottles."

Langlet Champagne are an award winning new French Champagne producer. Their “exceptional” 2009 Vintage Extra Brut Champagne was awarded a gold medal by the Beverage Tasting Insitute. An alliance of three accomplished French winemakers and friends - Vincent Metiver, Luc Chaudron known for his grand crus and premier crus, and Frederic Papelard. Langlet champagne is produced from the chalky vineyards between renowned Château Thierry and Epernay in the region of Champagne, France.

Anna Lee C. Iijima "A vein of graphite extends from nose to finish in this plump, blueberry-scented blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Fresh black-plum and cherry flavors are ripe but pure, lifted by hints of blossomy perfume and a lingering crush of minerality on the finish. Although at its best young, the wine should hold through 2025".

Wine Enthusiast "This blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah offer elegant restraint alongside pristine black-cherry and berry exuberance. Fruity and forward, it's shaded by nuances of thyme and wild mint. Fresh acidity and firm tannins lend structure. Enjoy this approachable yet elegant wine now through 2023." (2016 Vintage)

Robert Parker "Another spice-filled effort ... it has a kiss of green in its leafy herbs, mint, incense and sweet red fruits. Moderately concentrated, medium-bodied and easy drinking." (2015 Vintage)

Gault & Millau "Amazing wine with wild scents, captivating red fruits and peony, violet, tinted eucalyptus that permanently mark the taste buds!" (2015 Vintage)

Jancis Robinson "Flattering, macerated red fruits. Very open nose and light. Good freshness" (2015 Vintage)

Wine Spectator "Juicy, with raspberry coulis and plum skin notes lined with hints of anise and toasted vanilla. Offers an open, easy finish. Drink now. 5,500 cases made." (2015 Vintage)

The Winemaker "Beautiful deep colour of ruby colour. This wine is clean, bright. Aromatic nose, rich ripe fruit (blackberry and plum). Good concentration, wide and strong end of a long and beautiful evolution." (2015 Vintage)

This wine is Grenache (50%) Syrah (25%) Mourvèdre (25%).

While Chateau Maucoil only has a short history as a vineyard, the estate has a long history in the Rhone Valley that dates back to the Ancient Romans who used the property as an army fortress. Vines were planted in what we now know as Chateau Maucoil during the mid 1600s.

In 2014, Chateau Maucoil was certified as being 100% biodynamic. The Cotes du Rhone Villages appellation was introduced in 1966 and now applies to 16 in the southern Rhone Valley. Wines made under the appellation must meet higher standards than those of the plain Cotes de Rhone title and are from areas that show potential to produce distinctive wine of a high standard.

Bronze - Natalie MacLean

Bronze - Natalie MacLean (2017 vintage)

Natalie MacLean "... is an excellent value Shiraz, supple, full-bodied with layers of dark cherry, plum, dried herbs, pepper and well-integrated toasty oak spice flavours with a silky, long and vibrant finish."

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "Solid core of dark fruits, plums and white pepper follow through from the nose. Great acidity balances the dense fruit core with soft tannin and an elegant mouthfeel. Savoury herbal notes at complexity with a slightly old world feel to the wine. Classical cool climate shiraz from a cool vintage." (2017 vintage)

Natalie MacLean "A generous, full-bodied, supple Australia Shiraz with aromas of fleshy ripe black plums and spice. Perfect for grilled meats." (2017 vintage)

Western Australian winery, Plantagenet is acclaimed internationally for its consistently highly-awarded, quality wines produced from its five vineyards located in the cool climate region of the Great Southern. It is known for its highly aromatic riesling, tangy citrus-tinged chardonnay, exceptional Rhône-style shiraz and superb cabernet sauvignon. The five estate vineyards are overseen by Chief Viticulturist Jordan Ellis whose philosophy is sustainability and remaining true to the terroir of the region.

The Real Review "Plantagenet is a pioneer of the Great Southern region of Western Australia with vineyards first planted in 1986 and the first commercial winery established in the region. Celebrated for its rich heritage, the winery was until recently owned the Lionel Samson family, the oldest family owned business in Western Australia established in Fremantle in 1829. Plantagenet has five vineyards in the Mount Barker sub region each with the unique characteristics, ancient soils and a cool maritime climate creating expressive wines of provenance, quality & prestige. "

James Halliday, Halliday Australian Wine Companion "Plantagenet has honed its flagship varieties into a distinct Great Southern wine style; a depth of lively flavour, seamless elegance and natural purity"

The Great Southern is emerging as a wine region of international significance and reputation. It is the largest wine growing region in Australia and is the second largest producer of grapes in Western Australia. It is a landscape of forested cliffs and resplendent mountain ranges, grazing pastures and towns steeped in history. The regional climate ranges from the coastal, maritime subregions of Albany and Denmark to the inland, continental subregions of Mount Barker, Porongurup and Frankland River. The predominant soils are similar to those of the Margaret River region - either lateritic gravelly sandy loams (marri country) or sandy loams deriving directly from granite and gneissic bedrocks. Near perfect conditions for grape growing has lured some of the most creative and talented winemakers to call this land their home and become part of its ancient story.

5 Stars Winery - James Halliday

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "Attractively fruited and elegantly expressed with Gala apple, fig, lemon peel and almond notes, it's gently weighted and beautifully flowing in the mouth displaying excellent fruit purity with a creamy texture and bright acidity. Beautifully composed and harmonious. At its best: now to 2026."

Gabrielle Poy, The Real Review "Spiced nectarine and herbal highlights lead into a brightly fruited and fleshy core. It's tightly wound and tense in its youth, but still provides plenty of enjoyment. Time will add layers and breadth. A lovely style that balances fruit and savoury nuances very well. "

James Suckling "This has aromas of white peaches, lemons, fresh pears and salted butter. Creamy and fresh with bright acidity. Pretty pastry and white chocolate hints at the end."

James Suckling "Apricot stones, golden apples, cloves and roasted cashews on the nose. Full-bodied with fresh acidity and a rich, buttery texture. Vanilla and praline to close. " (2020 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Bright, light yellow colour, with a note of pineapple introducing the bouquet, followed by grapefruit and lemon, the palate round and soft, clean and dry, with appealing flavours and medium-long persistence." (2020 vintage)

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion "Salted pineapple, guava, curry leaf and red apples. This is worked and savoury, with a line of taut, briny acidity that courses through the heart of it. Quite golden in colour in the glass, which is reflected in the concentration and density of flavour in the mouth." (2020 vintage)

James Suckling "This has a spiced-pear nose with a wealth of fleshy fruit on the palate and a gently chalky, pastry finish. The acidity is bright and there’s a lot of peach flavor here." (2019 vintage)

James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion "Here grapefruit juice and zest light the way." (2019 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Medium yellow colour, seems rather advanced. Voluminous peach-nectar aroma, a plain wine, the palate likewise ripe and rounded, full and almost fat, with one-dimensional bold fruit. Sunshine in a bottle. " (2019 vintage)

Falstaff (Panel tasting- Othmar Kiem, Simon Staffler) "Pale straw yellow with greenish reflections. Intense and fragrant nose of elderflower, lemon and acacia, reverberating with hints of Mediterranean scrub and almonds. On the palate it is salty and clear, filigree, with a long finish."

Wine Enthusiast "Fresh grass, stone, citrus and the peppery herbaceousness of new olive oil show on the nose of this Vermentino. The wine remains savory on the palate with brine and stones but also toasted nuts, tahini and shortbread. These contrast with the bright acidic pop of lemon juice alongside rich lemon curd."

James Suckling "Lime zest and curd, green apple and jasmine tea on the nose. Flint, too. It’s medium-bodied with bright acidity. Tangy and refreshing. Drink now." (2019 vintage)

Rocca delle Macìe was established in 1973, when film producer Italo Zingarelli – of Ettore Scola’s “We All Loved Each Other So Much” fame, and also the wildly popular series of films featuring comedy duo Bud Spencer and Terence Hill (including “They Call Me Trinity” and “Trinity Is Still My Name”) – decided to realize his lifelong dream by acquiring the “Le Macìe” estate – extending across 93 hectares (230 acres) in all, of which only two were under vine – in order to create a winery in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone.

Anna Lee C. Iijima "A vein of graphite extends from nose to finish in this plump, blueberry-scented blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Fresh black-plum and cherry flavors are ripe but pure, lifted by hints of blossomy perfume and a lingering crush of minerality on the finish. Although at its best young, the wine should hold through 2025".

Wine Enthusiast "This blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah offer elegant restraint alongside pristine black-cherry and berry exuberance. Fruity and forward, it's shaded by nuances of thyme and wild mint. Fresh acidity and firm tannins lend structure. Enjoy this approachable yet elegant wine now through 2023." (2016 Vintage)

Robert Parker "Another spice-filled effort ... it has a kiss of green in its leafy herbs, mint, incense and sweet red fruits. Moderately concentrated, medium-bodied and easy drinking." (2015 Vintage)

Gault & Millau "Amazing wine with wild scents, captivating red fruits and peony, violet, tinted eucalyptus that permanently mark the taste buds!" (2015 Vintage)

Jancis Robinson "Flattering, macerated red fruits. Very open nose and light. Good freshness" (2015 Vintage)

Wine Spectator "Juicy, with raspberry coulis and plum skin notes lined with hints of anise and toasted vanilla. Offers an open, easy finish. Drink now. 5,500 cases made." (2015 Vintage)

The Winemaker "Beautiful deep colour of ruby colour. This wine is clean, bright. Aromatic nose, rich ripe fruit (blackberry and plum). Good concentration, wide and strong end of a long and beautiful evolution." (2015 Vintage)

This wine is Grenache (50%) Syrah (25%) Mourvèdre (25%).

While Chateau Maucoil only has a short history as a vineyard, the estate has a long history in the Rhone Valley that dates back to the Ancient Romans who used the property as an army fortress. Vines were planted in what we now know as Chateau Maucoil during the mid 1600s.

In 2014, Chateau Maucoil was certified as being 100% biodynamic. The Cotes du Rhone Villages appellation was introduced in 1966 and now applies to 16 in the southern Rhone Valley. Wines made under the appellation must meet higher standards than those of the plain Cotes de Rhone title and are from areas that show potential to produce distinctive wine of a high standard.

Bronze - Natalie MacLean (2017 vintage)

Natalie MacLean "... is an excellent value Shiraz, supple, full-bodied with layers of dark cherry, plum, dried herbs, pepper and well-integrated toasty oak spice flavours with a silky, long and vibrant finish."

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "Solid core of dark fruits, plums and white pepper follow through from the nose. Great acidity balances the dense fruit core with soft tannin and an elegant mouthfeel. Savoury herbal notes at complexity with a slightly old world feel to the wine. Classical cool climate shiraz from a cool vintage." (2017 vintage)

Natalie MacLean "A generous, full-bodied, supple Australia Shiraz with aromas of fleshy ripe black plums and spice. Perfect for grilled meats." (2017 vintage)

Western Australian winery, Plantagenet is acclaimed internationally for its consistently highly-awarded, quality wines produced from its five vineyards located in the cool climate region of the Great Southern. It is known for its highly aromatic riesling, tangy citrus-tinged chardonnay, exceptional Rhône-style shiraz and superb cabernet sauvignon. The five estate vineyards are overseen by Chief Viticulturist Jordan Ellis whose philosophy is sustainability and remaining true to the terroir of the region.

The Real Review "Plantagenet is a pioneer of the Great Southern region of Western Australia with vineyards first planted in 1986 and the first commercial winery established in the region. Celebrated for its rich heritage, the winery was until recently owned the Lionel Samson family, the oldest family owned business in Western Australia established in Fremantle in 1829. Plantagenet has five vineyards in the Mount Barker sub region each with the unique characteristics, ancient soils and a cool maritime climate creating expressive wines of provenance, quality & prestige. "

James Halliday, Halliday Australian Wine Companion "Plantagenet has honed its flagship varieties into a distinct Great Southern wine style; a depth of lively flavour, seamless elegance and natural purity"

The Great Southern is emerging as a wine region of international significance and reputation. It is the largest wine growing region in Australia and is the second largest producer of grapes in Western Australia. It is a landscape of forested cliffs and resplendent mountain ranges, grazing pastures and towns steeped in history. The regional climate ranges from the coastal, maritime subregions of Albany and Denmark to the inland, continental subregions of Mount Barker, Porongurup and Frankland River. The predominant soils are similar to those of the Margaret River region - either lateritic gravelly sandy loams (marri country) or sandy loams deriving directly from granite and gneissic bedrocks. Near perfect conditions for grape growing has lured some of the most creative and talented winemakers to call this land their home and become part of its ancient story.

5 Stars Winery - James Halliday

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "Attractively fruited and elegantly expressed with Gala apple, fig, lemon peel and almond notes, it's gently weighted and beautifully flowing in the mouth displaying excellent fruit purity with a creamy texture and bright acidity. Beautifully composed and harmonious. At its best: now to 2026."

Gabrielle Poy, The Real Review "Spiced nectarine and herbal highlights lead into a brightly fruited and fleshy core. It's tightly wound and tense in its youth, but still provides plenty of enjoyment. Time will add layers and breadth. A lovely style that balances fruit and savoury nuances very well. "

James Suckling "This has aromas of white peaches, lemons, fresh pears and salted butter. Creamy and fresh with bright acidity. Pretty pastry and white chocolate hints at the end."

James Suckling "Apricot stones, golden apples, cloves and roasted cashews on the nose. Full-bodied with fresh acidity and a rich, buttery texture. Vanilla and praline to close. " (2020 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Bright, light yellow colour, with a note of pineapple introducing the bouquet, followed by grapefruit and lemon, the palate round and soft, clean and dry, with appealing flavours and medium-long persistence." (2020 vintage)

Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion "Salted pineapple, guava, curry leaf and red apples. This is worked and savoury, with a line of taut, briny acidity that courses through the heart of it. Quite golden in colour in the glass, which is reflected in the concentration and density of flavour in the mouth." (2020 vintage)

James Suckling "This has a spiced-pear nose with a wealth of fleshy fruit on the palate and a gently chalky, pastry finish. The acidity is bright and there’s a lot of peach flavor here." (2019 vintage)

James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion "Here grapefruit juice and zest light the way." (2019 vintage)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Medium yellow colour, seems rather advanced. Voluminous peach-nectar aroma, a plain wine, the palate likewise ripe and rounded, full and almost fat, with one-dimensional bold fruit. Sunshine in a bottle. " (2019 vintage)

James Suckling "Freshly cut lime and seashell in the nose. Medium to full body, layers of fruit and a bitter-lemon and pear aftertaste. Delicious. Drink now."

Falstaff (Panel tasting- Othmar Kiem, Simon Staffler) "Pale straw yellow with greenish reflections. Intense and fragrant nose of elderflower, lemon and acacia, reverberating with hints of Mediterranean scrub and almonds. On the palate it is salty and clear, filigree, with a long finish."

Wine Enthusiast "Fresh grass, stone, citrus and the peppery herbaceousness of new olive oil show on the nose of this Vermentino. The wine remains savory on the palate with brine and stones but also toasted nuts, tahini and shortbread. These contrast with the bright acidic pop of lemon juice alongside rich lemon curd."

James Suckling "Lime zest and curd, green apple and jasmine tea on the nose. Flint, too. It’s medium-bodied with bright acidity. Tangy and refreshing. Drink now." (2019 vintage)

James Suckling "A subtle vermentino with white stones, sliced apples and preserved lemons. Medium body, fresh acidity and a taut finish. Drink now." (2017 vintage)

Rocca delle Macìe was established in 1973, when film producer Italo Zingarelli – of Ettore Scola’s “We All Loved Each Other So Much” fame, and also the wildly popular series of films featuring comedy duo Bud Spencer and Terence Hill (including “They Call Me Trinity” and “Trinity Is Still My Name”) – decided to realize his lifelong dream by acquiring the “Le Macìe” estate – extending across 93 hectares (230 acres) in all, of which only two were under vine – in order to create a winery in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone.
