Conte Estate The Numb Hand Pruner 2006 Grenache
It's a mystery why varietal grenache has fallen out of favour when there are wines like this available; medium-bodied with hints of spice, subtle oak and savoury characters, this offers real drinkability and affordability. $18.

Innocent Bystander 2008 Moscato
Probably first wine from the 2008 vintage to be released, and it's a ripping little pink number, effervescent and fresh with lashings of sweet Muscat fruit. A lively aperitif-style wine with just 5.5% alcohol that's sold in 375ml bottles. $12.50.

Bay of Fires 2002 Arras
This may be Australia's best sparkling wine. A classic Tasmanian blend of chardonnay and pinot noir, it is a bubbly with style and sophistication. There's lovely complexity but also freshness in a wine with wonderful balance and refreshing acidity. $55.
