A selection of three deliciously drinkable reds that are in a perfect drinking window, ready for consumption and all sub $25.
Poggio al Tufo Rompicollo 2017
"Fresh blueberries, violets and a touch of white chocolate, as well as brambles and herbs. Medium-bodied and quite edgy with intense acidity. Juicy and round on the finish, though." James Suckling
“A wonderfully seductive nose displaying lifted aromatics of bay leaves, blue berries with some underlying raspberry notes and a touch of dusty oak. This medium bodied wine is fresh and lively on the palate showing blueberry and lavender notes, elegant tannins and a lovely balanced mouthfeel. The perfect partner for bbq’s, pizza, pasta or to simply sit back and watch the world go by (via Zoom, of course!). Yum!” Wineaway note
Rosily Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
"Deep, dark red colour with a strong tinge of purple and an oak-driven bouquet, which has a trace of funk and sweat. This breathed off quickly, leaving dark berries and violets. The wine is concentrated and sumptuous in its fruit flavour and ample firm tannins. A big, generous mouthful of cabernet, ripe and balanced and well-structured for the long haul. Tasted April 2017. Drink 2019–2035." Huon Hooke
SC Pannell Field Street Shiraz 2018
"This doesn't need cellaring, although it will last some distance, and it doesn't need hours in a decanter. Just enjoy it; it is lighter-framed, laced with neat tannins, bright acidity and with a core of succulent fruit abetted by prosciutto and woodsy spices. Importantly, this has drinkability stamped all over it. Tasted October 2019." Jane Faulkner for James Halliday
