LEEUWIN ESTATE 'PRELUDE' CHARDONNAY 2019 - "(2018 vintage) Leeuwin Estate has the game sewn up with this entry point wine. It's so precise, so balanced, so pure. The distinction between fruit and oak is impossible to gauge, the length magical."

95 / 100

RUSDEN DRIFTSAND GRENACHE SHIRAZ MATARO 2019 - "(2018 vintage) Sanguine, earthy nose shot through with lovely cedar spice. Sweet, plush Grenache mid palate, but bright line of acid keeps it fresh and invites you back for more. Generosity is very deftly balanced here. Warmth melds into the red fruit and spice laden palate. Tannins keep it in line with some chalky bite. Exceptional value, hard to beat."

LA NERTHE 'LES CASSAGNES' COTES DU RHONE 2018 - "(2017 vintage) This is the little brother of the stately La Nerthe Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It has a deep purple-tinged ruby colour, with a sweetly super-ripe grenache-driven bouquet and flavour. Soft, rich, sound and succulent in the mouth, it has good concentration and persistence. A superior Côtes-du-Rhône."
