IXSIR Grande Reserve White from Lebanon - 92 points by James Suckling
The eye is seduced by its pure golden hue. The nose is enticed by an explosion of white flowers, peach, and citrus fruits. The palate is enthralled by an equilibrium between mellowness and liveliness that leaves a final, woody overture that gives the wine a highly distinctive character.
Ropiteau Chablis from Burgundy, France
Pale gold, lovely brilliance, and crystal clear. Extremely elegant. Predominant notes of fresh fruit (apple, pear, and blackberry) with a slight hint of oak. Rich, well-balanced with apple and honey.
Toi Toi Pinot Gris - 91 points by Peter Saunders
Sweetly fruited and immediately appealing, the wine shows dark plum, blueberry, floral, almond and subtle spice aromas on the nose, leading to a beautifully weighted palate that is succulent and supple.
Auswan Creek Golden Bull Shiraz - Special Edition
Fresh and full-bodied with lashings of spice, plums, blueberry, and dark chocolate.
Graf Johnann IV Resiling Halbtroken from Germany
Medium, off-dry aromatic with apple's scent on the nosing and peach on the palate.
Packed with enough acidity to balance off complex dishes.
