Tulloch 2006 E.M Chardonnay

I'm not always a huge fan of Hunter chardonnay but I really enjoyed this. Balance is the keyword here, with fruit and oak operating in perfect harmony. Open a bottle, serve with a leg of roast pork and you have a feast on your hands. $28.

Murray Street Vineyard 2004 Benno

Murray Street is an exciting new Barossa winery, with Andrew Seppelt heading up the winemaking team. This blend of shiraz and mataro is a very special wine; big, rich, quite oaky, but wonderfully balanced. One for the cellar - if you can resist. $75.

Edwards 2007 Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

A terrific classic white blend from a small, family-run Margaret River winery that always produces quality wines. This is very dry, very chic and very appealing - one of those wines where the bottle is empty and it seems you've barely had a glass. $22.
