Australia exploded onto the wine scene in the eighties and spent a couple of decades establishing itself as a country that produces serious, intense and intellectual wines alongside the blockbuster Shiraz and Chardonnay that became so ubiquitous. Thing is though, alongside the carefully-thought-out and delicately plush Mornington Peninsular Pinot Noir and crazy Grenache-Gris experiments, sometimes a big old-fashioned monster is exactly what is called for!

Here's two belters - and one lighter style, just because, you know. Balance.

2017 Tarot Grenache Alpha Box & Dice Adelaide Hills

Adelaide Hills is a great wine region for those looking for something with a bit more decorum than the smash-and-grab Barossa style. This delicious little Grenache is a light and intensely gluggable little number we've seen demolished in a matter of minutes, such is it's drinkability. Soft, juicy and with deliciously brambly spicy notes, this is great.


2018 The Scoundrel Shiraz-Grenache, Magpie Estate Barossa Valley

Oozing weight, style and power, the Scoundrel has made good. The Shiraz adds weight, heft and beautiful small berry fruit, while the Grenache leaves your mouth (and soul) demanding more. This is a masterclass in classy winemaking in a fervently unashamed Australian tradition by Rolf Binder, bought to this country by Noel Young, a mate of ours (and another wine merchant, so obviously a sensible chap.)

2018 Pete's Pure Shiraz

Classic Aussie Shiraz. Nose of peppers and capsicum followed by a heady rush of big fruit then a peppery aftertaste. Pete's Pure ain't intended to be subtle and nuanced, it's Aussie Shiraz and proud of it!
