You'll get no apologies from me for recommending yet another sensational 2008 Clare riesling. This is fresh, lively and zesty with wonderful lemon and lime flavours, crisp acid and only 11.5% alcohol. Ridiculously easy to drink! $16.

Sandalford 2005 Prendiville Reserve
Searching for a classy red for the holidays that's not mainstream? This is a searingly good Margaret River cabernet, made in small quantities, with wonderful varietal character, ripe fruit, a hint of earthiness and great balance. Superb! $89.

Bremerton 2006 Tamblyn
A recent visit to Langhorne Creek confirmed the region offers great bang for your buck. A blend of cabernet, shiraz, malbec and merlot, this is a big, bold and juicy red - quintessentially Australian - with dark berry flavours and soft tannins. $18.

Pike & Joyce 2008 Pinot Gris
On a warm day you don't want to think too much about what you are drinking; this is delightfully undemanding with peach and pear characters on the palate, hints of minerality and real freshness. More grigio than gris in my book. Really nice! $23.
