Five Oaks (Nelson) 2015 ChardonnayReview written for Five Oaks (Nelson) Chardonnay

Buttery flavours, sharp acid finish, I'm no Chardonnay expert but this seemed to tick the boxes. No complaints at this price.

Evenwood (Barossa) 2015 ShirazReview written for Evenwood (Barossa) Shiraz

Worthy of a top seller spot, smooth and full of flavour. I'd pay more for a red of this quality. Buy with confidence.

I've tried a couple of tempranillos now and I'm liking this one. Not a heavy red but smooth and interesting. I'd buy this one again.

Unmistakably Gewurtz, for people who want a bold white. Perhaps a bit overpowering if compared with delicate whites.

I'm trying a lot of these aussie reds at the moment, this one is good, fruit flavours plus some complexity and finish. Good solid wine, great price.

Light berry fruits, no harshness at all. Easy drinking is an overused term but I think this is the perfect example. Almost 5 stars but just lacking the complexity for a perfect score. I'll buy again at $10

Big taste, really spicy flavours. Not a red for pinot drinkers!

Absolutely Value for money, don't be put off because its so cheap, Just as nice at $9 as others at $12-13. This is the benefit of an Aussie wine glut- good drinking for us.

Distinctive nose on this one, I just had it with a nice bit of ribeye and a blue cheese salad. Not a bad drop.

Big wine with a sharp lingering finish. Would suit a meaty BBQ type meal. Not as nice as the Shiraz from the same producer but hard to fault at 11 bucks.

Big tasty red, a little sharp on the finish perhaps but that might improve with age. Just had it with a steak and salad and it went down a treat.

Good NZ red, I like the age. Nice flavours, good drinking. Definite value for money.
