Get one of these bad boys for Christmas. Penfolds Grange Bin 95 2019 scores 98 points from Tyson Stelzer in WBM. “While the inimitable presence and magnitude of Grange are here in full measure, what I love is that the personality of Barossa, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Clare Shiraz leap from the glass in all of their spicy, glossy, black-fruited glory. This is a brilliant Grange which makes a tremendous declaration of the power of blending in carefully singling out the very finest sites to produce a wine of incredible poise and purity, even in a season as hot and dry as this.” $1,000. @penfolds #Barossa #mclarenvale #coonawarra #clare #spicy #glossy ❤️🍷#santa
Glenarty Road Karridale Margaret River Vermentino 2022 scores 92 points from Mike Bennie in WBM. “A charismatic wine that manages to offer up good DNA of the variety in tonic water, green pear, faint cashew nut savouriness and a good squeeze of lime juice involved. Tightly wound, crisp, crackling with that bright, nervy acidity and with a general sense of refreshment factor along for the ride. Seafood/summery wine good times.” $30. @glenartyroad @margaret_river_wine #tightly #wound #crisp #refreshment #wine #margaretriver #glenartyroad ❤️

Mayfield Vineyard Eighteen Fifteen Orange Chardonnay 2022 scores 93 points from Mike Bennie in WBM. “As would be expected from the cool climate of Orange, excels in its minerally, racier vogue. Green apple, lime, grapefruity acidity, a jolt of brine/saline character with what feels like barely-there cinnamon oak seasoning. Refreshing and bright, tightly coiled and refined, this is a very well judged style and great drinking in its youthful vigour.” $37. @mayfield.vineyard @orangewineregion #apple #lime #refreshing #bright #refined #orangewine ❤️
