Kevin scored this wine: 92/100

Rich, full bodied and delicious. Very full on fruit with perhaps a tinge too much alcohol. Will please the Parker posse!

Cloudy Bay was the label that brought New Zealand to the World Wine Stage with their 'groundbreaking' Sauvignon Blanc. Personally, I think there are better Sav Blancs out there and that their Chardonnay is definitely more interesting. Hints of peach and biscuit with a nice edge of minerality.

Kevin scored this wine: 93/100

A fresh zingy Riesling with the perfect level of sweetness as a summer tipple that's a little different [and perhaps more interesting] than your traditional pinot Grigio. Medium body with quite low alcohol with gorgeous peach and mineral notes.

Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Marlborough, New Zealand

Kevin scored this wine: 90/100

Like NZ Sav Blanc? This wine delivers that typical fresh lime acidity of good Kiwi Sav Blancs but at half the price. Extraordinarily good value for a wine that delivers gooseberry flavours and aromas of wines that are twice the price. Fresh crisp acidity make this a delicious summer tipple.

The Dead Arm

d'Arenberg The Dead Arm Shiraz 2006

Mclaren Vale, Australia

Kevin scored this wine: 96/100

Aussie shiraz is more commonly thought of as big ballsy high alcohol fruit bombs. Dead Arm by d'Arenberg in Adelaide Hills is very different. This wine has a much more European feel; it's flavours of blackberry and herb are elegant rather than a kick in the teeth, the sweetness is subtle perfectly matched with defined tannins and superb length. Ridiculously good value - wine punches well above its weight.
