With all the wines we offer having passed an extremely tough Tasting Panel, it’s never a surprise to see them recognised by Australia’s premier critic. But it’s always nice nonetheless. Each of these featured drops has earned a minimum of 90 points from James Halliday.
Cracking value for money, this blend shows outstanding balance and flavour thrust. Perfumed aromas of ripe raspberry, liquorice, pepper and spice are followed by a succulent palate boasting the same flavours against a backdrop of fine-grained tannins.

"A lovely Barossa Grenache with sweet fruit and a touch of confectionary. Most appealing." Wine Society Tasting Panel Chair Ian McKenzie
Item Code: ITM4890
A fragrant bouquet that reflect the varietal and region. The palate is loaded with layers of red fruits, juicy acidity and is framed by fine tannins. A wonderful McLaren Vale Grenache.
Item Code: ITM5908
French inspired and with the lightness of touch that those words imply, this GSM is fruity, spicy and earthy all at once. Elegant but no shortage of flavour.
Item Code: ITM6574
"A light, brilliantly coloured blend of grenache, shiraz, mourvedre, cinsaut and carignan. A finely wrought and balanced wine with just about every spice and every red berry you can imagine from this Southern Rhone blend. A truly wonderful trattoria wine that soars on the gently savoury finish." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM6417
With inviting raspberry and cherry aromas at the fore, this wine exudes charm from the first whiff. The palate is vibrant with generous layers of rich red fruits, bitter chocolate and creamy vanillin oak, all of which are framed by fine-grained tannins. This is a great representation of premium McLaren Vale Grenache at a fair price.
Item Code: ITM5032
This Mataro Shiraz blend shows typical ripe plummy aromatics with an alluring spicy cherry undertone. It is a wine that walks the line between power and approachability, with layers of ripe, spicy flavours that sit within a rounded palate structure and persist along a fine-grained finish.
Item Code: ITM6176
Sweet, bright raspberry and strawberry abound on the nose with underlying notes of stone fruit, while the same lush red fruits swarm a medium-bodied palate. There’s a bit of complexity – dark chocolate, spice, liquorice and even tobacco – add interest, while soft but firm tannins contribute structure and length. A wonderfully complete wine at a very justified price point.
Item Code: ITM3356
A celebration of bright red fruits and spice with minimal oak influence. No question, this is one of Australia’s best Grenaches.
Item Code: ITM6596
A pretty nose with notes of raspberry and spice. The palate is full of juicy red fruits with savoury undertones and masculine tannins. Poise and power all rolled into one wine.
