  • Henschke Julius Riesling 2022

    £32.49

    “2022 marks the 30th anniversary of the Julius Riesling, and what a vintage to be able to commemorate. 2022 was blisteringly good, seemingly everywhere in South Australia (and Western Australia too), and that was never more true than for Riesling. Here, in the 2022 Julius Riesling, the tension and savory precision that marks Julius is out in full force; the wine this year is littered with preserved lemon, brine, pith and crushed shells (odd, sure, given the non-proximity to ocean!) and, more interesting, leafy things too, like green tea and orchard leaves. Kaffir lime, also? Excellent. Drink: 2022-2037. 95 points”

  • Powell & Son Eden Valley Riesling 2017

    £33.95

    “There are 300 cases of the 2017 Riesling, sourced from 90-year-old dry-grown vines. Really vibrant and fresh, it boasts aromas of lime and wet stone, finishing dry, clean and crisp. It will round out a bit with age, but it’s so enjoyable now, I’d opt for drinking it young. Drink: 2018-2030. 91 points

    Dave Powell was the founding winemaker at Torbreck (1994), where he single-handedly built the brand into a major player before being ousted in a business dispute. The 2016s are the third vintage for him and his son Callum under the Powell & Son label. Many of the vineyard sources are similar to those he worked with previously, but there’s no doubt Callum has had an impact on the style of the wines, as they’re definitively not Torbreck. The changes are subtle, but there’s a finer eye on the oak and gentle extraction, all in pursuit of intricacy and detail in the finished wines. “It’s been crucial for me to have Callum come in and give another perspective,” said Powell. The stars of the lineup are the Steinert and Kraehe Shirazes, very different expressions from very different sites, but it is impossible to go wrong with any of the latest releases.”

  • Powell & Son Loechel Shiraz 2016

    £109.99

    “From 70-year-old vines on granitic soils in the Eden Valley, the 2016 Loechel Shiraz features bright, floral aromas, hints of crushed stone and a tight, unyielding core of blueberry fruit. It’s medium to full-bodied, firm and concentrated, with plenty of aging potential. It’s perhaps the most Northern Rhône-ish of these offerings. Drink: 2022-2035. 96 points
