1. Best Whites

Dandelion Wonderland of the Eden Valley Riesling 2012/2013 – $15 at ALDI. This was one of the top Rieslings form 2012, at any price, and the 2013 is in the same class – you may get either from Aldi online.

Claymore Joshua Tree Riesling 2013 – $16 at Kemenys. Classic Clare Riesling, limes and lemons, bursting with life, fine acid, line and length. Bargain

Bellarmine Pemberton Dry Riesling 2012 – $17 at Kemenys. Bigger and more forward with more fruit than some Great Southern Rieslings, real bargain.

2. Best Reds 

Last Horizon Tamar Valley Pinot Noir 2012 = $18 at Winestar. Good colour, body and depth of soft flavour, great drinking and great value.

St Clair Pinot Noir 2012 – $18 at Dan M’s. This is a terrific Pinot Noir for the money: ripe cherries, plums and gamey flavours, good depth and length, supple and velvety. Let it breathe.

Hoddles Creek Pinot Noir 2013$20 at MyCellars. Stylish, complex, Burgundian. Virtually hand-made. Don’t know how Franco d’Anna does it for the money.

3. Best Sparkling
