This Month's Featured Wines
- Rock Chardonnay is a wine designed for today’s palate - full-flavoured, but fresh and light. Un-oaked, it is made with fruit from a single vineyard in Swan Hill, grown by the Button family, who really are master grapegrowers. The result is a flavoursome wine, with fresh Chardonnay varietal characteristics, ready to drink from the moment it is bottled. Rock Chardonnay goes well with most seafood and white meats and is surprisingly good with pasta and many other Italian dishes.
- $16.60 per Bottle
Melon, white peach and a little charcuterie complexity on the bouquet; generous on entry and fleshy, fine acidity and well-handled oak all play a role in a seamless transition across the palate. James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2014. Normally sells for $16.30
We still have the new vintage Richard Hamilton Chardonnay on special at only $12.99 per bottle. At this price it is very good value. If you like your Chardonnay with clean, crisp tropical fruit flavours and a touch of oak, then give this one a try!

- Recently released this excellent Pinot Noir has already notched up a Trophy and 2 Gold Medals.
The 2013 Sabre Pinot Noir is the latest release from Riposte - Wines by Tim Knappstein. Tim is widely regarded as an Adelaide Hills icon and one of the top makers of Pinot Noir in the country. This reputation is reinforced by Riposte taking out the trophy for top Pinot Noir in the Adelaide Hills Wine Show in 2010, 2011 and 2013. The 2010 vintage of the Sabre Pinot Noir was named best Pinot Noir in Australia at the Winewise Championship Wine Show in 2013. The follow up vintage, the 2012, received 3 Gold medals, 2 trophies and 97 points from James Halliday in the 2015 Wine Companion. No Sabre Pinot Noir was produced in the rain plagued 2011 vintage.
The 2013 Sabre Pinot Noir is an incredibly complex wine sourced from 6 of the top Pinot Noir vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. Tim believes that the 2013 vintage in the Adelaide Hills was one of the finest red vintages in recent memory. Small parcels from each vineyard were vinified separately with each parcel being aged in French oak of mixed cooperage, age, toasts and forests. This process resulted in the creation of 104 distinctly individual Pinot Noir's of which 75 were rigorously selected to make up the final blend of the 2013 Riposte 'The Sabre' Pinot Noir.2013 'The Sabre' is on Special for a limited time at only $29.10 per bottle.
