This is Coonawarra winery Hollick's excellent take on SuperTuscans. A blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon, it has lovely sweet/savoury aromas and is beautifully structured with attractive fruit and soft tannins. A terrific food wine. $24.

De Bortoli have have inspired a legion of imitators but this remains the standout stickie in Australia; a stylish botrytis semillon with intense aromas and a rich, luscious palate oozing with stone fruit and citrus flavours. Great with blue cheese. $30.
This New Zealand winery makes oustanding chardonnays at a range of price points, but this indivdual vineyard wine is absolutely brilliant with lovely balance and great acidity. Powerful but elegant, this would be superb with a roast leg of pork. $58.
