Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis Premier Cru Vaillon 2017
$113

Origin: Burgundy, France

The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillon is showing well, unwinding in the glass with a pretty bouquet of fresh peach, citrus blossom, blanched almonds, smoke and fresh pastry. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, satiny and elegant, displaying promising tension and youthful reserve, concluding with a pure and precise finish.

Argiolas Korem IGT 2016
$139

Origin: Sardinia, Italy

Lovely combination of steak tartare with bright blue fruit, such as brambleberries and blueberries, and hints of smoke and cassis bush. Full-bodied and chewy on the palate, which is driven by the plush fruit and mellow acidity, but remains on point and somehow steely.

Elderton Command Shiraz 2014
$193

Origin: Barossa, Australia

From vines planted in 1894, the 2014 Command Single Vineyard Shiraz aged in a combination of French and American oak (80% new). Aromas of smoky campfire and vanilla lead the way, followed by expressive raspberry fruit. It’s full-bodied and lush across the palate, creamy in texture, impressive in its concentration and balanced by a crisp, fruit-driven finish. Quintessential Barossa Shiraz.

Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino Vecchie Vigne DOCG 2012
$209

Origin: Tuscany, Italy

Aromas of ripe fruit such as sweet strawberries and hints of orange peel and chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, soft and velvety tannins and a flavourful finish. Riper style. Drink or hold.
