2017 Domaine Naturaliste Artus Chardonnay
Margaret River, Australia
‘Brilliant straw-green; white peach, cashew and melon are brought together under a net of grapefruity acidity that refreshes the mouth and calls for another mouthful of a wine with attitude and class.’

2016 Dr Thanisch Berkastler Badstube Riesling Kabinett
Mosel Valley, Germany
'Very light yellow colour. The aroma is chalky, slaty and reminiscent of lemon pith, while the palate is quite sweet and juicy, a lovely fruity wine with seamless acidity and balanced sweetness, the intense fruit flavour holding the attention keenly. This has amazing richness of flavour for a kabinett: an outstanding example of the style. A gorgeous drink. Drink 2019-2034’

2018 Domaine La Suffrene Rose
Provence, France
'The art of Rosé is the art of understatement, the art of creating a drinkability so complete that it almost contrives to efface its own origins. Almost. Yet it's a mark of the greatness of this rosé that those origins do linger - namely the distinguished clay-marl terraces of Bandol, and the contentment of the Mourvedre which so relishes growing there. This is a deeper salmon than many of its peers, with scintillatingly peachy-floral fruits. The origins come through most clearly in the palate, with its sustained shaping structure from those contented Mourvedre vines. The Grenache, meanwhile, has brought wealth and fleshy Cinsault charm. It adds up to an irresistible whole.  Drink 2019-202'

2018 Farr Rising Pinot Noir
Geelong, Australia
‘Deepish red/purple colour with a floral, rose-petally bouquet that is aromatic and charming. A hint of potato peelings indicating stalk inclusion. The wine is medium-bodied and subtle, with notable acidity lending a trace of firmness to the palate. There's a touch of austerity. A delicious pinot, very enjoyable now, and as its best with food.’

2016 Chateau Queyron Pindefleurs Grand Cru
St. Emillion, France
'It's true that only one Bordeaux wine made it through to our Best In Show collection this year, but that wine is a commanding one. This statuesque St Emilion is dark black-red in colour; aromatically, its glowing ripe black fruits both seem to be sweetened yet freshened by classy oak. The palate is expansive, amply ripe, rich and gratifying, lent complexity by flavours of smoke and earth but by firm supporting tannins, too, as well as by sweet-toned acidity. All the lineaments are there for a hugely enjoyable wine; just add time. Drink 2020-2030'

2015 Craiglee Shiraz
Sunbury, Australia
'I’d have Craiglee on my list of Australia’s best Shiraz for sure, except they’re such quiet achievers, you might forget to add them. Blackberry, boysenberry, spicy biscuits, a dash of pepper, white flowers. It’s medium-bodied, fresh mixed berries (raspberry in particular), distinctly minerally acidity gives it a water-coloured texure, then comes a bold smudge of fine graphite tannin to underline. Has a wonderful transparency, though it does have depth of fruit to go. Finish is well-defined, savoury/spicy, and very clean and long, that beautiful tannin still gripping as it goes. Yes.'  Drink : 2021 - 2035+
